When you have a healthy smile, your teeth and gums are both in tip-top condition. Most people focus on the teeth when they think of a pretty smile, but without the support of the gums, the teeth will suffer.  At Smiley Dental Webb Chapel in Dallas, Texas, we help you achieve the best oral health possible, which is why Dr. Raquel Wright and Dr. Navaneetha Natchimuthu provide several types of gum treatments to help our patients in Dallas, Texas, maintain healthy, attractive smiles.

Gum disease comes from the proliferation of bacteria in your mouth that create that sticky film called plaque. If plaque is left unchecked by daily brushing and flossing, along with six-month professional dental cleanings, you can end up with periodontal disease. It is not treated, the tissue will continue to recede and you can incur tooth loss and even bone loss.

What should you look for when it comes to gum disease?

– Swollen gums

– Bleeding gums

– Red gums

– Loose teeth

– Chronic bad breath

– Pain when you chew

– Longer looking teeth from gum recession

If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may be at risk for periodontal disease. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 214.635.2810 to schedule a visit with our team. We offer a variety of treatments to help fight periodontal disease, including extra professional dental cleanings, antibiotics, scaling and root planing, gum surgery, and at-home oral hygiene recommendations.
