When it comes to your smile, there are many things that work together in order to achieve great oral health. No one thing works independently from the other, and it is important to make sure everything that contributes to your dazzling smile is healthy and strong. Many people may not know this, but your gums contribute a large amount in the overall health of your entire smile. Often put on the back burner, your gums are play a vital role, and when they are compromised, the result is never good. By offering periodontal disease therapy to their patients, Dr. Laura Ryan and Dr. Michael Ryan are able to make sure their patients’ smiles are always looking fantastic!
Periodontal disease therapy accounts for about 70 percent of tooth loss, and can cause many negative effects on your body. If left untreated, periodontal disease has the potential to cause or play a role in bone loss, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and etcetera. Some signs of periodontal disease are swollen or red gums, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, and gums that are sensitive.
One of the ways Drs. Ryan are able to help you with your periodontal disease is by scaling and root planing. This allows us to remove the bacteria and plaque from below your gum line. We will also be able to smooth out the surfaces of your root, so no additional bacteria is able to stay there. Also, we will give your gums some antibiotics to make sure the harmful bacterium is away for good! If you feel as though you suffer from periodontal disease, and you would like the help of Drs. Laura and Michael Ryan, contact our Allen, TX dental office, and we would love to help!

People often forget that to have a healthy result, one must have a healthy foundation. Many people believe that as long as your teeth are straight and white, they are healthy. Unfortunately, not much attention is paid to the gums, which are the most crucial contributors to a healthy smile. Gum (periodontal) disease is when your gums are under attack, and it can result in unhealthy teeth. Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Laura Ryan are dedicated to making sure your gums are as healthy as they can be, which is why they offer periodontal therapy to their patients.
Periodontal disease affects over 80% of the population, which makes it one of the more common diseases out there. One point that may be shocking is the fact that many people may not even be aware that they are suffering from periodontal disease, leaving their mouths to ongoing infection and deterioration. Some of the most common signs of periodontal disease are swollen gums, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, tenderness, and loose teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to an increased risk in heart disease, stroke, dementia, and much, much more.
When you come in for your appointment, we will tackle your periodontal disease with scaling and root planing. These procedures allow us to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line. This way, we are able to remove all of the harmful bacteria in areas that your toothbrush and flossing cannot reach, giving you a clear mouth! We will also be able to smooth the root surfaces, making it more difficult for tartar to build. We will give you antibiotics for your gum disease, helping your mouth heal, then close the appointment with instructions on how to better take care of your gums. If you’re interested in how Drs. Laura and Michael Ryan are able to help you with your periodontal disease, make an appointment at our office, and we’d be more than happy to help.
