Periodontal Disease in Temple, TX

Apart from your teeth, your gums also play a crucial role in the oral cavity. They cover and protect the root portion of your teeth and surrounding bone structure. If bacteria or other factors affect your gums, it can lead to periodontal or gum disease. Progressive periodontal disease can weaken the supportive tissues, resulting in tooth loss. It is one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss and bears severe effects on the health of your oral cavity. To maintain the integrity of your gum tissues, our dentists provide routine evaluation for periodontal diseases in Temple, TX.

    What Leads to Periodontal Disease

    Gum or periodontal disease occurs when harmful bacteria invade the gum pockets surrounding your teeth. It can occur as a result of prolonged plaque or tartar accumulation. Plaque contains bacteria and debris that can infect your gum tissues and weaken their structure.

    If gum disease is not addressed at an early stage, the infection can also progress toward your bone, resulting in bone loss. Once your bones lose their strength, they can no longer hold your teeth in place. Because of this, you are at a high risk of losing your natural teeth. That’s why our dentists recommend regular evaluation in Temple, TX, to avoid the risk of periodontal diseases.

    Questions About Periodontal Disease?

    Are You Experiencing Any of These Common Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

    The early signs and symptoms of periodontal disease often go unnoticed or ignored. Some of the common symptoms of gum disease include the following:

    • Inflammation or redness of gums
    • Increased tenderness of gum tissues
    • Gum bleeding (that occurs spontaneously or with brushing)
    • Receding gums
    • Pus around the gum tissues
    • Increased tooth sensitivity (due to exposed roots)
    • Mobile or lose teeth

    It is essential to visit a dental clinic for proper evaluation, whether you are at an early or late stage of periodontal disease. At our practice in Temple, TX, we strive to detect periodontal diseases at an early stage by providing routine examinations. This proactive approach serves as a prevention method against potential future complications.

    Explore Your Treatment Alternatives

    When you visit our clinic to seek solutions for gums-related issues, we will begin with a detailed clinical exam to assess the cause. Our team will also perform digital x-rays to analyze the extent of periodontal disease and its effect on surrounding bone. If you have deep periodontal pockets that are over 3mm along with sufficient bone loss, you may get diagnosed with periodontal disease. Depending on the severity of your case, our team will discuss possible treatments with you that may include non-surgical or surgical options.
