What is Periodontal Disease?

periodontal disease treatment in Richardson gum disease treatment North DallasThe ligaments, bone, and gums surrounding your teeth are called the periodontium. The periodontium is the base, or foundation, for all your teeth, and when you have a problem with these tissues your teeth and health can be in serious jeopardy. Because it affects the gums, periodontal disease or more commonly known as “gum disease.”

Symptoms of Gum Disease in North Dallas, TX

Dr. Kessner, DMD, may be able to help slow or reverse these issues if addressed early enough. Common symptoms of gum disease in Richardson, TX, include:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or bleed easily
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • Receding gum line
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes to your bite

Gum disease treatment usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic, along with local antibiotic agents. If gum disease is left alone, you may eventually need treatment through surgery or extraction, so it’s important to have gum problems checked promptly.

Dr. Kessler is a very thorough dentist. When I started going to him I had the beginning of gum disease. Now my gums are in excellent shape. He has a friendly chair side manner, and can be quite comical. He has zoomed my teeth, made me a night guard, and has repaired several of my old crowns. I think you would be pleased to go to Dr. Kessner.
