Gum Disease Treatment

Mansfield, TX

Effective Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is responsible for more cases of tooth loss in American adults than any other oral health problem. It’s even been linked to a variety of serious health conditions, such as heart attacks, strokes, and Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why Dr. Sandi Hamm and her dedicated team members are always looking out for signs of gum disease during your regular dental checkups, so we can catch it at the earliest possible stage. If we do discover gum disease, we offer several non-surgical therapy options designed to get you back to enjoying a sensational smile as quickly, comfortably, and effectively as possible.

Signs of Periodontal Disease

Common signs of periodontal disease include the following:

Gums that bleed after brushing and/or flossing

Redness, puffiness, or tenderness in the gums

Bad breath that isn’t relieved by mouthwash or diligent homecare

A sudden shift in the way your bite or teeth feel

Teeth that appear longer (receding gums)

It’s important to remember, though, that these symptoms may not manifest until gum disease has reached a more advanced stage. That’s why it’s so crucial to attend regular checkups with Dr. Hamm. She can determine its presence in cases where an untrained eye cannot and then work with you to create an individualized treatment plan.

Gum Disease Treatment Options

The care we recommend for you will depend on the severity of your unique case. In some cases, more frequent, in-depth cleanings may be all it takes to reverse the effects of gum disease. More severe instances can be treated with deep scaling and root planing, which are techniques used to remove plaque and toxins and smooth out rough spots on root surfaces. If we determine that surgical intervention is required, Dr. Hamm will be happy to recommend you to a trusted specialist.
