If you have an active case of gingivitis, the thing you need more than anything else right now in order to protect your oral health is to get it under control. This is going to require a multi-faceted approach that, though it’s not very challenging, you simply have to follow through on! Remember, when you address this early stage of gum disease, you are essentially rescuing your smile from serious damage. Let our Southlake, TX team help, so you can get back to the healthy smile you’re used to!
Begin Brushing And Flossing Like You Love It!
Even if you’re not entirely thrilled about your dental hygiene, we encourage you to start thinking about your brushing and flossing as your favorite thing ever. Why? Well, because it’s something you have to do no matter what. It’s also the thing that’s going to save your gums. When you already have gingivitis, you need to keep your smile as clean as you can to help promote healing (and to ensure that once we offer you treatment, you can avoid developing it again).
Come See Us Right Away
If you think you have gingivitis because you’re noticing common symptoms like puffy gums, red gums, purple gums, bleeding, bad breath, etc., then you should come in for a dental checkup as soon as you possibly can. From this moment, your gum disease is going to advance. At a certain point, it is no longer this easily-treatable oral disease but becomes something different that will require complex care.
Agree To A Deep Cleaning
When you come in and we positively identify that you have gingivitis, we will want to do a deep cleaning. This means that instead of the usual, traditional cleaning, we will take a more thorough approach. Your gums have pulled away from your teeth, leaving little pockets. Within these pockets is tartar and plaque that we must remove. We also have to smooth your dental tissue (to limit the future adhesion of bacteria). This will all encourage your gums to lie flat again, as your gum health returns to normal. Say yes! Otherwise, you will likely face advancing gum disease.
