Hunt Family Dentistry can work alongside you to address any of your gum issues at our Frisco, TX, dentist office. 

What Is Periodontal Care?

Periodontics refers to the care of your gum tissue. However, because your gums are part of the important foundation of your oral health, periodontic care should always be considered as part of your regular dental care. Visiting us for tooth or jaw pain? We’ll check on your gum health to see if that’s what’s causing you pain. Hoping to rejuvenate your smile with a smile makeover? Again, we make sure your periodontal health is where it should be before performing cosmetic care. Gums get forgotten too often, but we have periodontics on the mind. We’ll make sure you do too, equipping you with preventative care strategies to keep them pink and healthy.

Gum Disease & Gingivitis

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common yet preventable gum condition that can affect people of all ages. It starts with gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, mainly due to plaque buildup. If overlooked, it could advance to periodontitis, affecting the bone and potentially leading to tooth loss. Knowledge is power, and our team is here to educate and guide you on the warning signs of gum disease and prevention tactics. Look out for:

  • Painful, swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums when brushing
  • Receding gum line
  • Loose or lost teeth

You See the Gum Disease Signs—Now What?

Gum disease treatment can range from at-home remedies recommended by our Frisco periodontic dentist to procedures to restore lost bone density. To know where you are on this spectrum, come to our office in Belmont Woods for a periodontic dentistry consultation.

We’ll assess how far your gum inflammation has advanced using both Dr. Hunt’s expert analysis and our imaging tools. We’ll then create your treatment plan, which could include a combination of at-home and in-office options.

Family-Friendly Periodontal Care

At Hunt Family Dentistry, family comes first. We offer specialized periodontal services designed to cater to both children and adults, ensuring that every member of your family receives age-appropriate and expert care. Good gum health starts with good health habits at a young age, so we emphasize early education on flossing and brushing. 

We also don’t neglect our older patients. The American Dental Association report that 68% of seniors have gum disease. We work to reverse that with our periodontic services. At our office, we care for gum patients of all ages, from small smiles to golden grins.
