To stay in charge of your dental health, regular visits to your general dentist are recommended. If further issues arise, your dentist may refer you to a dental specialist.

Periodontists

People with sore or infected gums often see a periodontist, a dentist who specializes in gum diseases. The most serious gum condition, periodontitis, can cause the teeth to fall out if left untreated.

Gum disease affects many Americans, in particular those in their 30s and 40s. You have several different options available for treating gum disease, from simple at-home methods to professional dental care.

Proper flossing techniques will gently slip between the tooth and gum tissue and remove debris from the pockets, helping prevent gum disease, says Gausmann. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Tina K. of Houston)

Got gum disease? It's common but still not normal for your gums to bleed when you floss or brush your teeth. Your dentist can determine how advanced disease is.

When Jeff first came to me, it wasn’t just his teeth or gums that were bothering him: His constant leg pain meant he couldn’t work as a waiter anymore. But Jeff's orthopedist wouldn’t perform the joint surgery until he got the gum infection under control.

I have moderate to severe gum disease and needed tissue grafting done. Dr.
Virden Periodontists Provider Name Locked
did the procedure about one month ago and I was pleasantly surprised to find what a painless and professional job was done. Numbing for the procedure itself involved two very small p***** and I never really felt any pain with the whole experience again. I found everyone in the office to be very professional and knowledgeable. I'm going to need this procedure done a few more times in other spots in my mouth and after this first experience I don't have much anxiety about doing it again!

, and Dr.

are very friendly. Luckily I have not needed extensive dental procedures, but I have had over 15 cleanings and minor work. I have known people that have had more complex procedures at this office and were very satisfied. I recommend this practice.

and his assistant are always early and have never kept me waiting. They do everything to make and keep you comfortable. They both explain everything in detail. If you want an excellent Periodontics/Gum Care Dentist you will not find anyone better. They always give me all their attention and no running to answer phones, etc.

Of all the professionals I've gone to over the years, Dr.
Virden Periodontists Provider Name Locked
is number one! He is highly skilled, and has such a great "bedside" manner. His staff is also really nice. Everyone takes the extra time to explain everything, as well as to address any fears and anxieties one might have about the process. Dr.
Virden Periodontists Provider Name Locked
needed to perform three different procedures for me, and each time he would call that evening to make sure everything was going OK. The process went exactly as he described it would, and he was very accurate about the amount of time needed for recuperating (and the amount of pain to expect!). I felt like I was in good hands, and that he really cared about my outcome. Dental surgery is not something people look forward to, but if it has to be done, Dr.

is the best!

The front office was short staffed. When I was finally called to the back, the hygienist took my bitewing xrays and told me the Dentist would be there soon to clean my teeth because it was just her and him. She already had a patient she needed to get to. So the Dentist, who was already busy, came to my chair. He was friendly and chatty but never once did he look at my xrays or ask me about my dental care/health. Now I was 6 months overdue for my cleaning and if anything, I would expect a few extra minutes to clean my teeth. Instead, he glided his pic across my teeth and said my teeth were pretty good. Cleaned a couple of my bottom teeth, flossed and polished within 10 minutes. Did not even rinse my mouth til the very end. Did not check for pockets or chart any findings on my teeth. I have a resin filling in one tooth that it seemed as though he was trying to pull it loose and said it needed to be replaced. He wanted me to come back. I was so upset with this shoddy service, I got up from my chair where the assistant insisted I stayed in it so she can make me an appointment. I insisted they credit my insurance for this visit so I can go elsewhere and get it done right. We came to an agreement to not charge for the cleaning, but I was still charged for the shoddy exam.
