Gum disease treatment in Allen, TX

When you are brushing your teeth, have you noticed swollen, red gums, or bleeding? If so, it’s important to seek treatment from your dentist in Allen, TX. Gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to irreversible damage without treatment and can also negatively impact overall wellness, increasing the risk of other conditions such as diabetes, stroke, or heart disease. At Allen Dental Studio, we are committed to improving the well being of our patients through high-quality oral care which is why we offer comprehensive gum disease treatment.

Types of treatment available for gum disease

Effective gum disease treatment is largely dependent on several factors including the stage of the disease, the state of the patient’s oral health and the individual symptoms. The first step in all cases of gum disease treatment is to implement a good oral hygiene routine which includes at-home care and increased dental visits. We may recommend one or more of the following treatments to improve your gum health.

  • Improved oral hygiene – it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice each day for two minutes at a time and floss every day to eliminate food particles and prevent the buildup of disease-causing plaque and bacteria.
  • Routine dental visits – During your exams, we can identify early signs of gum disease, making them easier to treat. Additionally, professional cleanings can remove built-up plaque or calculus that cannot be removed with at-home brushing.
  • Antibiotics – For gum infections, we can prescribe oral or topical antibiotics.
  • Scaling and root planing – For more advanced cases, this professional deep cleaning removes plaque below the gumline to the root.

Restorations after gum disease

If you have lost teeth due to gum disease, it is important to undergo restorative treatment. When gaps are left in the smile, it can cause remaining teeth to continue to shift out of place as well as a loss in bone tissue. We offer a variety of options including bone and tissue grafts as well as dental implants and bridges to restore your smile.

It’s important not to delay treatment if you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of gum disease. To book an appointment at Allen Dental Studio, please give us a call today at (469) 293-2007.
