Non-Surgical Gum Treatments

The foundation of your teeth is created by the gums, ligaments, and bones in the mouth, also known as the periodontium. Just as when a bad foundation threatens a house’s stability, when the periodontium is unhealthy, it can jeopardize the health of the teeth. Unhealthy periodontium is known as periodontal or gum disease, and some signs of gum disease include:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or that bleed easily
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Bite changes
  • Persistent bad breath

If you are experiencing any of these signs, please contact the office of Dr. Rosales in Dallas today. We can help you receive the care you need and, in some cases, we can even help reverse the disease and return your gums to a healthy state. Treatment for gum disease often involves scaling and root planing, deep cleaning procedures, performed while you are under a local anesthetic, and antibiotic agents. Severe gum disease may require surgery or extraction, so it is very important to visit the dentist at the first sign of the problem.
