We love the month of March at Firewheel Dental Implants and Periodontics. This is because it happens to be Oral Health Month, which Dr. Vikram Gandhi and the rest of our staff are very passionate about. In fact, this is the perfect month to schedule a visit to your periodontist in Dallas, TX, and learn more about what your dental professionals do to maintain your oral health. Here are just a few things your periodontist can help with.

1. Gum Disease

Gum disease affects about half of the U.S. adult population – even people who make sure to brush and floss their teeth every day. There is no cure for this disease, and it only gets worse without professional intervention. A periodontist such as Dr. Gandhi can help treat gum disease before it advances further.

2. Gum Recession

Advanced gum disease and other issues can eventually lead to gum recession, where the gum moves away from the teeth, exposing the roots. This can lead to increased tooth sensitivity. If the gums recede far enough, you may need gum surgery or a gum graft.

3. Missing Teeth

Missing teeth happen due to age, decay, and even trauma. The good news is that your periodontist can restore the look and function of your mouth and teeth through dental implants. Even if you are missing a full arch of teeth, there are options available with dentures and implant-supported dentures to help you get life back to as normal as possible.

4. General Dental Health

Periodontists are also great to see for your general dental health, and March celebrates oral health in general, so it is a great time to visit Dr. Gandhi. We can monitor your dental health to catch any issues before they become more serious. Maintaining your general oral health can also lower your risk for other diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
