Do You Have Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal Disease in Texas Though most Texas residents are fairly health-conscious, periodontal disease is more common than you might think. At Vaca & Kirby Dental, we see patients with gum disease every day. Some patients aren’t even aware they have it until Dr. Chris Kirby diagnoses it. Fortunately, it can be treated with varying degrees of treatment depending on the severity.

What is periodontal disease? Periodontal disease, more commonly called ‘gum disease’, is an inflammation or infection of the gums. Periodontal disease can be very painful in some extreme conditions and can limit your ability to eat normally. In some cases, periodontal disease can affect your smile and can create cosmetic concerns.

If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage such as tooth loss. When caught early and treated, periodontal disease can be managed and, ultimately, cured. However, the best policy for Texas dental patients is to practice good dental hygiene to keep periodontal disease at bay.

One of the best ways to avoid periodontal disease is to get a regular dental checkup at your local Longview dentist. If you don’t have a dentist, give us a call at 903-663-0861 to schedule a dental check-up and cleaning. Don’t take the risk of allowing existing dental problems like gum disease to progress. At Vaca & Kirby Dental, we are committed to the highest standard of dental care and patient satisfaction.
