Periodontal Therapy Can Save You from Gum Disease

We’re often so preoccupied with the health and appearance of our teeth that it’s easy to forget their vital support system just underneath: the gums. Unfortunately, the gum tissue is just as susceptible to infection as enamel is, if not more so. Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is one of the most common health problems in the world, as well as the leading cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. At Legacy Dental SA, our team takes this threat to your well-being very seriously, and we offer effective therapy options that can revitalize the gums and improve your oral health.

Common warning signs of gum disease include bleeding, swollen, or overly red gum tissue, excessive bad breath, and a receding gum line. If you notice any of these symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact our San Antonio practice today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Eck. We welcome new patients from Castle Hills Forest and other surrounding neighborhoods.

Scaling-&-Root-Planing

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes too severe. During this in-depth cleaning, our team will target accumulations of plaque and bacteria that have formed beneath the gum line. We will also smooth the rough surfaces of tooth roots, which are known for attracting bacteria as well. If you practice good oral hygiene techniques following this procedure per our instructions, the progression of gum disease should come to a halt.

Schedule your next appointment with us.

Gum-Disease

Gum Disease

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a bacterial inflammation of the gums. It is a serious condition that often goes unnoticed until it has caused extensive damage to teeth, gums, and the jawbone.

The dentists at Legacy Dental SA can identify and treat gum disease early, as well as take steps to repair late-stage damage.

Learn how early treatment by the highly trained dentists at our San Antonio, TX, practice can stop gum disease in its tracks.
