Do you suffer from swollen, discolored gums? Have frequent bad breath? You may suffer from a common oral condition known as periodontal (gum) disease. Luckily, Tamborello Dentistry in Magnolia, TX can help! We offer gum disease treatment for patients that suffer from periodontal disease.

What is Periodontal (Gum) Disease?

Gum disease is an oral disease that can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth, which forms pockets that increase the risk of bacteria buildup and infection. While your immune system tries to fight the bacteria overgrowth, your connective tissue and bone may begin to break down. This can result in loosened teeth and eventually complete tooth loss. Some of the symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Swollen, red, or irritated gums
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Formation of spaces between teeth
  • Pus or infection in the gums
Doctor

At your appointment, Dr. Tamborello will examine your teeth, gums, and overall oral health to determine if you have gum disease and are a candidate for gum disease treatment. If you are a candidate, you can expect the tooth scaling and root planing.

  • Tooth Scaling – One of our highly-trained hygienists will use specialized dental tools to remove plaque, tartar, and infection from around affected teeth and your gum line.

  • Root Planing – After tooth scaling has been completed and your teeth and gums are clean, your hygienist will smooth out your tooth root so that the gums can reattach easier and heal.
