Learn How Gum Disease Can Affect Your Life and How To Get Rid Of It

Prevention Of Gum Disease

Our team has over 90 years of dental experience, making us adept at diagnosing signs of disease and removing it with effective gum disease treatment. We offer minimally invasive laser therapy as a gentle form of gum disease treatment. With gum therapy or deep cleaning treatments, we can manage the disease and decrease the bacterial load and inflammation. 

Our goal is to catch gum disease and perform treatment before it spreads or develops into advanced periodontitis, an incurable condition that causes tissue and tooth loss.

The Symptoms Of Gum Disease. What You Need To Know.

Gum disease is so prevalent because the symptoms often go unnoticed until it is too late. If you ever see blood when brushing or flossing, have sore and swollen gums, or experience recurring bad breath, then you might be affected by the beginning stages of gum disease, called gingivitis.

If these conditions are left untreated, the disease will advance to periodontitis, an incurable condition characterized by loose teeth, gum recession, and even tooth loss. Timely gum disease treatment in McKinney, TX, can save your smile from the effects of this disease.

Here is how we can treat gum disease:

Scaling and Root Planing

As a first option for gum disease treatment, our dental hygienists use ultra-small tools to access the area below the gumline. We then scrape away plaque, tartar and bacteria buildup that gathers around the tooth roots.

Osseous Surgery

This gum disease treatment is used for advanced stages of the disease. Our doctors gently remove infected gum tissue to access the tooth roots. We then remove any bacteria and plaque, cleansing the mouth and gums. The gum tissue is then sutured back snuggly around the teeth at the appropriate locations.

Periodontal Maintenance

After gum disease treatment has cleansed the mouth of disease, patients require follow-up care to ensure the disease does not return. Periodontal maintenance involves scaling and root planing treatment and thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. We recommend periodontal maintenance every three months for optimal results.

Arestin®

This is an antibiotic gum disease treatment added to the gum pockets to reduce bacteria . Commonly, Arestin is used in conjunction with scaling and root planing and periodontal maintenance gum disease treatments.

Laser Therapy

A minimally invasive form of gum disease treatment, laser therapy uses gentle laser light to disintegrate bacteria while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Many patients prefer this because there are no cutting or sutures involved and the procedure can be performed quickly.

We believe that every patient has a right to our very best.

The experience at McKinney Dentist is always wonderful. I checked in and was called back within 5 minutes. My appointment began (early) which is great! The assistant was so friendly and very efficient. Dr Callison came in very soon and got to work. He is always so friendly and skillful! I was out the door in a few minutes. Perfect!

“Personable and trustworthy!”

Dr. Berlin provided me with a general video overview of the next steps to take towards aesthetically improving the appearance and health of my teeth within little over a day after I initially contacted his office. I once had a terrible experience with a dentist several years ago and committed to never subjecting myself to that type of treatment again. I found Dr. Berlin to be quite personable and trustworthy and look forward to getting started in taking control of my dental health. A beautiful smile is on the horizon for me!
