What is Periodontal Disease?

Gum disease is a common infection that causes damage to the soft tissue and the bone around your teeth. If you allow the infection to get worse, the supporting bone around your teeth will deteriorate over time.

Bacteria can stick to the surface of your tooth and the hidden places you can’t reach with a toothbrush. The bacteria can develop quickly, causing your immune system to react. As the bacteria produce toxins around the teeth, you may start to notice inflammation.

As bacteria continues to develop, it will turn into plaque, and then to tartar. The inflammation will generally get worse until you start to lose teeth. In worst-case scenarios, periodontal disease can lead to a stroke, heart attack, or other health conditions.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

The primary purpose of treatment is to remove the bacteria from the surface of the teeth, around the base and in hidden areas. There are several types of periodontal disease treatments in Frisco, TX, including:

  • null

    Healthy Oral Hygiene

    The number one way to prevent gum disease is to brush and floss your teeth daily. We recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Make sure you choose a toothbrush that can clean hard-to-reach places. Try to purchase soft bristle brushes that can reach in between your teeth. Clean your teeth thoroughly and adequately.

  • null

    Teeth Scaling and Cleaning

    The best way to restore your teeth is to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar. When you schedule a teeth cleaning session at Frisco Dental Associates, we will scale your teeth and break up the plaque and tartar below the gumline. We recommend that you schedule teeth scaling and cleaning at least twice a year.

  • null

    Medication

    There is a wide range of treatments and mouthwashes that we offer to help keep your teeth healthy, such as:

    • Antimicrobial mouth rinse
    • Antiseptic chip
    • Antibiotic gel
    • Antibiotic microspheres
    • Enzyme suppressant
    • Oral antibiotics

Treatment for Advanced Periodontitis

If you have a severe case of periodontitis, and conventional treatment does not work, we may want to consider moving forward to advanced treatment options. One option is flap surgery. We can perform flap surgery to remove the calculus that has built up in the deep areas of your teeth roots and gums. We lift the gums back and remove the heavy tartar buildup. The gums are then repositioned so that they are close to your teeth.

Another option is bone or tissue grafting. This is for worst-case scenarios. We can graft natural or synthetic bone to areas where your bone has deteriorated. This will promote bone growth and stability.

Best dental team in Texas!!! I have been to them now for 2 dental emergencies and in both cases they have been phenomenal. on my last visit, I needed 2 teeth pulled. after the 1st tooth, my anxiety was getting the best of me (I have very bad dental anxiety) and before I even said anything, Dr. E offered to reschedule my other tooth for another day. not only do they do amazing work, but they actively listen to their patients and work with them. i will recommend them to everyone i know, and I'm certainly not going anywhere else!
