Many people have symptoms of gum disease in Kyle, TX, but they may not know the underlying cause of their symptoms. Gum disease can develop as a result of poor dental hygiene, genetics, or certain medical conditions. In fact, those who have diabetes have a higher chance of developing gum disease than others. Common symptoms of gum disease include persistent bad breath and tender gums that bleed easily. Advanced periodontal disease can eventually lead to noticeable gum recession and eventual tooth loss. Dr. McIntyre encourages patients who think they may have gum disease to visit his office for an examination. If the presence of diseased gum tissue is detected, Dr. McIntyre will recommend one or more treatment options, depending on the severity of each case.

Early stages of periodontal disease can often be treated with scaling and root planing procedures. Dr. McIntyre utilizes ultrasonic equipment and special tools to remove the bacteria and tartar found both above and below the gum line. Then, he carefully smooths the roots of the teeth to facilitate the reattachment of healthy gum tissue. In order to continue experiencing the benefits of treatment, it is important for patients to continue healthy oral hygiene habits for the remainder of their lives.

Patients who exhibit one or more symptoms of gum disease in Kyle, TX, including those who also have diabetes, are encouraged to meet with Dr. McIntyre during National Diabetes Month and receive treatment. Those who wish to schedule an appointment or learn more about scaling and root planing procedures are invited to call Clear Springs Family Dentistry at 512-268-4011
