Where can I find a Leander dentist?
Have you recently experienced symptoms of gum disease? Tender, swollen gums? Bleeding gums when you brush and floss? Bad breath? Periodontal disease, which progresses adversely in stages, can be treated by your Leander dentist, Dr. Melinda Jones, of Shiny Dental Spa.
The earliest stage of gum disease, gingivitis, and more advanced periodontitis are caused by excessive plaque and tartar buildup. Periodontal disease is one of the most common dental conditions, yet is nearly entirely preventable with a well maintained oral care regimen at home and with your Leander dentist. Treatment options for periodontal disease can vary from patient to patient, however, the prevention of periodontal disease and its advancement can best be accomplished with a thorough at-home dental hygiene regimen of brushing and flossing and keeping biannual appointments for a comprehensive dental exam and professional teeth cleaning treatment.
At Shiny Dental Spa, Dr. Jones will discuss your individual treatment plan with you after properly evaluating and diagnosing the condition of our gums. Patients experiencing gum disease in its earliest, gingivitis stage may be recommended to better and regularly brush and floss, as well as receive professional teeth cleanings to reverse the effects. If a patient’s disease has progressed to a more severe stage, more extensive therapies such as scaling and root planing may be required.
If you’ve become afflicted with periodontal disease, it’s essential to schedule an immediate appointment with your Leander dentist, Dr. Jones at Shiny Dental Spa. She and her caring, professional staff will provide you with the high-quality care you need to address and remedy your gum disease.
