Gum Disease Treatment
What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a serious problem that affects approximately 80 percent of Americans. Because gum disease isn’t necessarily painful, many Americans who suffer from the disease don’t even realize it. At every check up our team will thoroughly check your mouth for signs of periodontal disease. The earlier the problem is caught, the easier it is to treat with our gum disease treatments.
Signs of gum disease could include:
- Gums that are red, swollen and tender, that easily bleed
- Receding gums
- Chronic bad breath or bad taste
- Pus between your teeth and gums
- Permanent teeth that feel like they are loose or separating
If you have gum disease, it can cause serious oral health problems like tooth loss, receding gums, and chronic bad breath. It may also contribute to serious health problems like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, and respiratory disease. Fortunately, at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry we can treat periodontal disease before it gets too severe. Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene can help combat periodontal disease. Our OralDNA system can detect gum disease in our patients who live near Garland fast. With OralDNA, patients can get the treatment they need quickly and effectively.
Dr. Goad does everything in his power to prevent gum disease and prevent the need for gum disease treatment. However, if you are suffering from gingivitis or a more advanced version of gum disease, Dr. Goad has a gum disease treatment, and the experience that can help you get your oral health back.
At our practice, we offer periodontal disease treatments using LANAP and OralDNA.
Gum Disease Treatment Using LANAP and Oral DNA
OralDNA is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence and severity of gum disease. To conduct this test we use a saliva sample that is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
LANAP is the leading periodontal disease treatment, and Dr. Goad is proud to offer it at his office. The LANAP protocol can re-grow the tissues and bone lost to gum disease. LANAP is a simple, and effective process that is more comfortable than traditional gum disease treatments.
To find out more about periodontal disease, and LANAP or OralDNA, please contact our office with any questions for gum disease treatments near Lake Highlands & Garland. We would be happy to set up an appointment in Richardson TX for a more beautiful smile.
