According to the CDC, gum disease affects more that 64 MILLION people. Gum disease, also known as Periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums and bone that supports your teeth. It rarely hurts, so it usually does it’s damage without you knowing you have it.

We have all heard the funny “redneck” jokes like “You might be a redneck if…”  Well, you know what we are talking about.  If Jeff Foxworthy was your dentist, he might say…You might have periodontal disease if….

 

-It’s been 3 or more years since your last cleaning
-Your gums bleed when you floss them
-You have teeth that are loose
-You always have bad breath, no matter how much Listerine you gargle with
-You were told by your last dentist that you needed a “deep Cleaning” or “gum therapy”

 

If you fit into to 1 or more of these categories, there is a very good chance that you have this infection.  One thing is for sure, gum disease is no laughing matter.  That’s why if you have any of these symptoms, you really need to come and see us right away.

What Happens If Gum Disease Goes Untreated?

If periodontal (gum) disease is left untreated, the gums may pull away from the teeth and form pockets or spaces between the teeth and gums that usually becomes infected. Without treatment, the infection can progress, bone loss can occur and teeth may become loose, fall out or require extraction.  Whether you have a mild case of gingivitis or a severe case of periodontitis, McKinneyDentist.com can help in treating your gums and getting them healthy again before it destroys the gums and other supporting structures.

Treatment Options

The treatment options for gum disease depend on the severity of the case.  That’s why early detection is so important.  If you are concerned that you have gum disease and you have some of the symptoms we have mentioned above, then call our office now to setup and consultation.  Call now at 972-54-SMILE.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1408555354812{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”]
