A Nonsurgical Approach to Treating Gum Disease

Dentist in Irving, TX

Gum disease is the body’s response to plaque deposits on the teeth. The bacteria in plaque irritates gum tissue and causes infection, which ultimately compromises both the tooth and the underlying bone.

For patients with mild to moderate periodontal disease, our doctors at Kids and Grownups Dental provide scaling and root planing to eliminate tartar and calculus below the gun line. At our office in Irving, TX, we offer CareCredit®, Lending Club, and Simple Pay to assist patients with any out-of-pocket costs.

Early Detection is Key

Gum disease rarely causes pain or discomfort. Therefore, it is important to watch for other tell-tale signs of the condition. The first stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis, which is characterized by red, tender gums. If left untreated, the condition progresses deeper into the gum line, forms pockets around the roots of the teeth, and can lead to bone or tooth loss.

Diagnosing gum disease in the early stages is crucial. By detecting it early on, we can use less invasive treatments to save you time, money, and discomfort.
