Periodontal Care At
Forest Trail Dental Care


At Forest Trail Dental Care, we understand the critical importance of maintaining healthy gums for overall dental health. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults and often progresses without pain, making it difficult to detect until significant damage has occurred. Our dedicated team offers advanced periodontal care and soft tissue management to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease at every stage, ensuring the long-term health of your smile.

Periodontal Disease and Its Impacts

Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that supports your teeth, primarily caused by the buildup of plaque—a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If not adequately removed, plaque hardens into tartar, leading to gum inflammation, bleeding, and eventually, bone and tooth loss. The early stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis, characterized by red, swollen gums that may bleed easily. As the condition progresses to periodontitis, teeth may become loose, spaces may develop between teeth, and significant bone loss can occur.

Temple, TX Periodontal Care Services

  • Soft Tissue Management: Our non-surgical approach to treating gum disease includes scaling and root planing. Scaling involves the careful removal of tartar from the tooth surface, while root planing smooths the root surfaces and removes the infected tooth structure. These treatments effectively manage periodontal disease, reducing the need for more invasive surgery.
  • Perio Protect: For patients seeking a convenient, at-home treatment option, we proudly offer Perio Protect. This comprehensive system uses a custom-fitted Perio Tray to deliver medication deep below the gums, reaching areas that traditional cleaning methods cannot. The Perio Tray is designed with a special sealing system to ensure effective delivery of the treatment, providing a simple yet powerful way to combat gum disease.

The Importance of Early Detection and Treatment

Early detection and intervention are key to managing periodontal disease and preventing its progression. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential, as they allow our team to monitor your gum health and take action before more serious issues arise. Symptoms of periodontal disease include bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. If you experience any of these signs, it’s crucial to seek professional care immediately.
