Treating Gum Disease in San Antonio, TX

Gum disease is the inflammation of the gums that affects the tissue and bones that support the teeth. Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease. This is a serious condition that, if left untreated, can lead to tooth decay, resulting in tooth loss. Our experienced San Antonio, TX dentist, Dr. Jabbour, offers several treatment options to treat gum disease.

Symptoms of Gum Disease in Adults

  • Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
  • Gums that are red, swollen, or tender
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Any change in your bite
  • Any change in the fit of dentures
  • Permanent teeth that have suddenly become loose

The Three Stages of Gum Disease

Stage 1 – Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the build-up of bacteria in the mouth that causes gum inflammation or bleeding. Several factors lead to gingivitis, including a change in hormones or medications, a family history of gum disease, a build-up of plaque, or illness. If gingivitis is diagnosed early, the condition can be easily treated with a deep clean, also known as a procedure called scaling and root planing.

Stage 2 – Periodontitis

If gingivitis is left untreated, or is not caught early enough, periodontitis will develop. Periodontitis affects the supporting bones and fibers that hold the teeth in place. The gums form pockets, or deep hallow areas, around the tooth that trap plaque, food, and bacteria. Gum recession will occur, causing gaps to form between the teeth. To prevent further damage or tooth loss, immediate treatment is required.

Stage 3 – Advanced Periodontitis

The final stage of gum disease is advanced periodontitis. Bacteria that has been left untreated has spread throughout the mouth, causing the destruction of the connective tissues and bones that support the teeth. At this stage, the teeth can shift or loosen. Immediate treatment is required to prevent tooth loss.

Treatment options for gum disease

If you have been diagnosed with gingivitis, our San Antonio dentist will perform a scaling and root planing procedure. This deep cleaning removes plaque, tarter, and bacteria from the surface of the tooth.

For patients diagnosed with periodontitis or advanced periodontitis, oral surgery may be required. Dr. Jabbour will review your recommended treatment plan and help you find an affordable solution to repair the damaged gums and teeth.
