Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly, plaque and tartar gradually accumulates. If not removed, it can irritate the gums and lead to gum disease. At Mason Dental in Grapevine, we treat gum disease, and encourage proper dental hygiene to prevent it in the first place.
One of the scary things about gum disease is that it can be painless during its early phases. Here are some of the signs to watch for:
- Gums that bleed easily from flossing or brushing
- Gums that are swollen, red, or tender
- Gums that recede, or move away from the tooth.
- Loose teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- A change in your bite
- A change in the fit of a partial denture
In addition to brushing and flossing twice a day, it’s important to see us at Mason Dental every six months for a checkup and cleaning. We perform the most thorough dental cleanings possible. The good news is that gum disease can be reversed in its early stages.
Our goal is to help our Grapevine dental patients prevent gum disease before it starts. To schedule a deep cleaning, call us at Mason Dental in Grapevine. In addition to dental cleanings, we provide general and cosmetic dentistry.
