General Dentistry

Bleeding gums are one of the more common dental problems we treat at Garland Grove Dentistry. Many patients don’t realize that gums that bleed when you brush and floss often indicate a larger issue than brushing too hard.

If your gums are bleeding, sore, or swollen, there’s a good chance that you have the infection we call gum or periodontal disease. It’s essential to call Dr. Jung right away to schedule an appointment to investigate the problem.

You may only see bleeding gums, but gum disease can cause significant damage before you see any symptoms at all. Before you know it, the infection attacks bones and ligaments that hold your teeth in place.

As it does, your teeth start to feel loose, and without treatment, the tooth will become mobile and we will need to remove it. As soon as you notice bleeding or any other changes to your gums or the way your teeth feel, call us to schedule a dental appointment. We’ll schedule a thorough cleaning with our dental hygienist who can determine the extent of the problem.

The best way to treat gum disease in Garland, TX is to address it in a timely manner. Catching the infection during a routine checkup allows us to resolve it before it does long-term damage to your oral health.

Regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential for a healthy, problem-free smile. Whether it’s time to schedule your regular six-month exam, or you haven’t had a dental cleaning in ten years, you are welcome at our Garland Grove, TX dental practice.

Keeping your teeth clean with professional dental cleanings keeps them healthy and helps you avoid gum disease and cavities. Even if it’s been years since your last dental visit, we’ll start with a comprehensive cleaning and exam. When Dr. Jung understands your dental needs, he can make the appropriate treatment recommendations to maintain or improve your oral health. We’ll also help you understand what you could be doing better in terms of your at-home oral hygiene routine. ​

At Garland Grove Dentistry, our skilled hygienists provide comfortable dental cleanings using ultrasonic technology. These ultrasonic cleanings remove bacteria-filled plaque and tartar that cause permanent damage to bones that support your teeth. ​We also provide routine low radiation digital x-rays as needed. Dental x-rays are invaluable and help us detect small issues before they damage your oral health.

Even if you’re doing everything right with your oral hygiene at home, you still need professional dental cleanings at our Garland, TX dental office. Your brush and floss can’t reach all the plaque and tartar that we need to remove to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
