While they are bad enough, the invisible impact of the disease is your increased exposure to serious conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

Treating gum disease will:Dr. Matt Davenport on Gum Disease Read Transcript
We've taken some online classes and try and better our knowledge on how to treat gum disease. Hispanics are at a 40-50% higher chance of getting gum disease so what we do is we can treat the patient non surgically. Which means basically it's similar to a regular hygiene cleaning visit, we're just treating underneath the gum tissue a little bit deeper to better clean out and treat the causes of what can cause gum disease. We've seen people that come in, they say they haven't had their teeth cleaned either in 20, 30 years or I even had someone say they've never had a teeth cleaning in their life. And you can imagine that it's pretty life changing when they can actually say, Man, I didn't even know my teeth were supposed to feel like this or look like this. And that's a pretty eye opening result.
- Stop painful symptoms like sore and bleeding gums

While gum disease can’t be cured, particularly in later stages, we can effectively prevent it and reverse its effects. We will check for signs of disease during every dental exam. Call 956-517-2695 today if you suspect you may have gum disease.
Save Your Smile By Proactively Treating Gum Disease
If you think you may have gum problems, you should seek treatment ASAP. If you’re in an early stage of gum disease, a simple dental cleaning may be all that’s needed to return your smile to health.
For more advanced cases of gum disease, we will likely suggest deep cleaning procedures known as scaling and root planing. They will:
- Clean bacteria from your gums
- Smooth out the roots of your teeth to help stop bacteria from clinging to them
- Make it easier for your gums to reattach to teeth, eliminating “pockets” between your teeth and gums where bacteria can collect
