Have you ever taken the time to thank your gums for everything they do for you? Healthy gums not only help your smile look beautiful by standing strong and pink, but they also hold your teeth in place and protect sensitive parts of your tooth below the gum line. More importantly, they keep bad dental debris, foods, and other substances from directly entering your bloodstream through your mouth. In the times that your gum health starts to decline or needs serious medical attention, your dentist in Fort Worth is here to help you! Let’s look at how Hulen Dental works to keep your gums at optimal health.
We Care About How Your Gums Feel and Look!
Your gums play a big part in how you can feel about your smile. If they are unhealthy, your mouth may not feel as strong as before and you may even experience dental pain. Sometimes, your gums may overlap your teeth too much and cover up your beautiful teeth. We have solutions to both of these problems so that you can begin to love your smile again.
Recognizing There’s a Problem with Your Gums
Gum disease is a serious—but very common—condition that compromises your overall health. It’s important to recognize the early signs of gum disease so that you can get assistance replenishing them as soon as possible. Here are the tell-tale signs of gum disease:
- Red, swollen gums
- Tender gums
- Bleeding when brushing or flossing
- Buildup of pus between gums
- Loose fitting teeth
- Receding gums
- Pockets of infection along your gum line
- Chronic bad breath
Gum Disease Therapy from Hulen Dental
Imagine you have bleeding gums and tenderness every time you brush your teeth. Our dental experts may need to intervene and clean beneath your gum line. We will complete a painless scaling and root planing procedure to replenish your gum health.
In the case that gum disease has advanced into its later stages, you may need oral surgery to revitalize your gums. Typically, your dentist will recommend one of four surgical treatments to restore your healthy gums:
- Pocket depth reduction
- Bone or tissue regeneration
- Crown lengthening
- Soft tissue grafts
Alter the Appearance of Your Gums for a Better Smile
Do your gums cover too much of your teeth? Do you want to see more of your smile and less of your gums when you laugh? If you have an uneven or low gum line, we can utilize our non-invasive surgery to have more of your naturally gorgeous teeth show with a gum lift. Our safe soft tissue laser gently recontours the size and shape of your gums to help your teeth look longer, shapelier, and ultimately more attractive.
