MacDonald Ranch Dentist


Gum disease, which is also called periodontal disease, is a disease that attacks the gums and bone that surround your teeth and support them. Periodontal disease occurs when plaque and bacteria build up on the teeth, above and below the gums. Untreated gum disease can cause tooth loss.

We treat following symptoms in Battleground, Washington:

• Gums that bleed when you brush and floss
• Red, tender, or swollen gums
• Persistent bad breath or bad taste
• Gums that are pulling away from the teeth
• Deep pockets between the teeth and gums
• Loose or shifting teeth
• A change in your bite

The treatments we provide at Excel Dental will restore the health of your gums and prevent tooth loss. Our dentists may recommend that you have extra professional teeth cleanings. If this is not sufficient, our dentists may perform scaling and root planing. During this procedure, our dentists will scrape the plaque from your teeth, including under the gums. They will then smooth your tooth roots, which will make it difficult for plaque to adhere to them. Visit the following pages for more information:
