Periodontal Therapy Makes Smiles Brighter in Burleson

Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is one of the most common health conditions in the United States, as well as the leading cause of tooth loss. In addition to dental problems, this condition has been linked through research to higher risks of heart attack and premature births. All in all, it’s definitely no laughing matter – that’s why Dr. Jay Oza and the rest of our team here at Marvel Dental take this threat so seriously. If we discover any indications of periodontal disease during your routine appointments, we provide personalized therapy options to restore much-needed health and effectively treat damage. Contact our Burleson, TX practice today to schedule a visit!

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease creating mild symptoms like slight redness and swelling in the gum line. This condition is typically painless, and with proper professional maintenance, any damage can be reversed. Dr. Oza will recommend that patients undergo an in-depth cleaning with our team, as well as instructions on how to more effectively floss and brush at home. If gingivitis is not properly cared for or left untreated entirely, it will develop into a much more severe form known as periodontitis.
