Gum Disease Symptoms

Gum Disease Symptoms

Not sure if you have periodontal disease? Some of the warning signs include red or swollen gums, tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, receding gums, loose teeth, sensitive teeth, mouth sores, and persistent bad breath. Common risk factors include tobacco use, diabetes, poor nutrition, and grinding your teeth.

Gum Disease Diagnosis

Gum Disease Diagnosis

In order to diagnose periodontal disease, Dr. Dholariya will perform a visual exam. This check is also done as part of a routine dental visit. We will measure the space between your tooth and gums, known as measuring the pockets, to see if they are a healthy depth. We will also check for any bleeding or inflammation.

There are two general types of periodontal disease: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the least severe stage where your gums are tender and inflamed, and they may bleed. As the condition worsens, your gums are more irritated and bleed more easily. Left untreated, gum disease can even result in your teeth loosening or falling out and bone loss.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment

How we treat your periodontal disease is heavily dependent on how advanced your condition is. There are a variety of treatment options available, including a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing, antimicrobial rinses, antibiotic gel, and antibiotic tablets. With scaling and root planing, we first remove any tartar around the gum line and then we smooth out any rough spots around the tooth root to eliminate any inflammation.

  • First of all, being able to be seen on a Saturday, especially with tooth pain is unheard of and I greatly appreciate it.
    Second, the couches were super comfortable and the staff was very sweet and helpful. I came in Friday afternoon and was able to get an appointment the next day.

    I used to go to a different dentist (which I went to for a cleaning 3 weeks ago) and I will never go back. This place is fantastic! The dentist I saw was also very helpful and informative!

    The techs are super friendly and Dr D could not have been more caring. I get really anxious at dentist offices, but their setup is great. Plenty of TVs to distract oneself. I cannot recommend this dentist's office enough!

    S K.
  • All the staff is SUPER friendly from start to finish. Emily was AWESOME on my first visit and made sure I understood what would be done before I left the office. When I returned for my actual procedure Aja and the doctor were AMAZING in making sure to explain what was being done that day and made sure to answer any questions. They made me feel very comfortable and insured I was never in any pain. The doctor is amazing and I am very happy with the dental work. I would say this is the best experience I have had in a dental office by far.

    Jazmin S.
  • I needed to be seen as a new patient for routine exam and cleaning. Initially, I was going to have to wait a week for my appointment but staff called and said I could be seen that same day. I was taken back almost immediately. Vanessa was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure I was comfortable. I was seen by Dr. McConnel. He apologized for the wait (I did have to wait a little but Vanessa turned on Netflix for me so I really didn’t mind! I was not in a hurry). They were both very friendly and He explained the x rays and everything thoroughly. He offered options to improve some issues I have but was not pushy about getting anything scheduled immediately. I had a good experience and would recommend.
