Either our dentist or one of our hygienists will screen you for periodontal disease at your first regular dental visit. Dr. Bartholomew Paxton will inform you of how gum disease can lead to bone loss and even loose and sensitive teeth. Periodontal therapy in Keller, Texas, ranges from scaling and root planing, or “deep cleaning”, to antibiotic regimens. If necessary, gum disease can be treated with surgery. While we treat most cases at Keller Town Dental, if your condition is severe, we will refer you to a periodontist for more advanced treatment. Please contact our team at 817-337-7941 to learn more.
