Gum Disease Therapy – Dallas, TX
Heal Your Gums & Preserve Your Smile
As a general rule, healthy gums don’t bleed. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, you might have gingivitis – the beginning stage of gum disease. Without treatment, dangerous bacteria might damage the tissue and bone that keep your teeth in place, resulting in tooth loss. Research even suggests that gum disease is linked to a higher risk for heart disease. Call our team at Jina L. Kaiser, DDS if you’re dealing with bleeding gums; we may be able to preserve your smile with gum disease therapy.

Scaling & Root Planing
When caught early enough, gum disease can often be eradicated with a dental deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing. First, Dr. Kaiser removes the hardened plaque and tartar deposits from along and beneath the gumline, and then she gently reshapes and smooths the roots of the teeth. This creates an environment where bacteria have a hard time thriving, reducing the chance of the infection returning. It also expedites the healing process by encouraging the gums to reattach to the teeth.
