Gum Disease & Gingivitis (Periodontal Disease)

7 Steps to Healthy Teeth and Gums

Great oral health isn’t only about your pearly whites; your gums are vital to the integrity of your mouth. Healthy gums mean your teeth are receiving the necessary nutrients and oxygen. At Solis Dental, we make sure your entire mouth is well taken care of. We are a truly full-service dental practice in Hutto, TX. That is why as part of our general dentistry offerings, we include gum disease/gingivitis and periodontal disease treatment.

There are instances when the gums surrounding and supporting your teeth become infected. This is known as gum disease or gingivitis.

As part of our routine checkups, we also check for signs of gingivitis. If at any point, gum disease is identified, it is important that we take care of it quickly. If treatment is delayed, patients risk losing teeth, among other oral complications. As part of the gum disease treatment, your Solis Dental professionals will conduct a deep cleaning to remove bacteria and treat the infection. At times, root scraping and planing may be necessary. We take great pride in providing a thorough service. The Solis Dental staff is well equipped with the proper equipment to get the job done. You’ll be happy to know that their gentle touch goes a long way when conducting this treatment.

Periodontal Disease

When gingivitis is left untreated, periodontal disease follows closely. As time progresses, the infected gums pull away from the teeth. This can cause bone structure to be lost, soon your teeth will be missing the support they need and will fall out. While this all sounds scary, we are here to help every step of the way. We look to prevent any tooth loss and provide treatment for periodontal disease.
