Treatment for Gum Disease


Caring for your smile means more than just your teeth. At the base of your oral health is your gums and they need protection and care to keep gum disease at bay. Gum disease affects millions of adults, an estimated half of adults over the age of thirty. As the leading cause of tooth loss, gum disease should be taken seriously. With general dentistry from River Ranch Dental, we can help you prevent and treat gum disease at our office in Midlothian.

Gum disease treatment depends on the level of progression. Gum disease starts at gingivitis. If not treated, gingivitis can turn into moderate or advanced periodontal disease. Gingivitis can usually be treated with deep cleanings and medications to fight gum infection. More advanced forms of periodontal disease may require more extensive treatments to remove the cause of infection and heal the gum tissue.
