Stages of Gum Disease
Gum disease is also called a periodontal disease because it affects the gums (periodontium) and bone that support your teeth.
The most common symptom of gum disease is bleeding gums. Bleeding while brushing or flossing, or gingivitis, is the first stage of gum disease, If left untreated, gingivitis will progress into periodontitis – an advanced form of chronic inflammation. Periodontitis damages the connective tissue and bones around your teeth. Advanced periodontitis can cause tooth mobility or even loss over time if not treated properly!
Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment in San Antonio
The major cause of gum disease is plaque, the icky layer of bacteria excrement that constantly builds up on your teeth. It contains chemical compounds that destroy your gums and teeth. With regular cleanings with Dominion Ridge Dentistry, our hygienists remove plaque and help prevent gum disease.
Even the damaging effects of gum disease are also amazingly simple to fix if treated early by Dr. Louis R. Garcia. Gum disease is deceptively painless in the early stages, so it’s nearly impossible to self-diagnose. The best way to assess and treat gum disease is by visiting a professional dentist.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Clean offices. I really enjoyed the massaging dental chairs.
One other important note, I have anxiety when it comes to dental work. My dentist at Dominion Ridge said he would do everything he could to make my experience a good one. I believe him because who enjoys going to the dentist to get work done? They were wonderful.

I had a really great first visit. The waiting area was very nice and spacious. The complimentary water and coffee is always a good touch, but who has chocolate chip cookies in a dentist office? Dr. Garcia does. :) The hygienist, Violet, was very gentle and thorough. I left with a smile brighter then when I walked in. See you in six months Dr. Garcia!
