Affordable Gum Disease Treatment & Care

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection involving the tissues responsible for holding your teeth in place. Gums provide the foundation for your teeth. Without healthy gums, teeth will be lost!

Gum disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque and tartar on the teeth that builds up on the teeth over time and causes inflammation. The buildup of plaque is typically caused by poor oral health because of poor brushing habits and not flossing. Inflammation results in symptoms like red, swollen, bleeding gums.

Gum disease treatment is important to diagnose and treat as advanced forms of the disease lead to loss of teeth of other health concerns, like diabetes and heart diseases. The American Heart Association says that 50% of heart attacks and strokes are caused by oral (mouth) bacteria.

Perla Dental is a huge advocate of periodontal (gum) health! We are family-friendly dental care provider in the Metroplex who provides effective, affordable treatment of periodontal (gum) disease in our 10 offices located in the DFW area.

Affordable Root Canal Treatments

At Perla Dental, a typical root canal procedure involves the following:


Initial assessment

Your root canal dentist will thoroughly examine the affected tooth to determine if a root canal is needed.



Before the root canal procedure begins, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the area around the tooth.


Accessing the pulp

Specialized equipment is used to make a small hole in the tooth to access the pulp chamber.


Removing the infected pulp

Damaged pulp and nerve tissue is removed from inside the tooth.


Cleaning and shaping the canal

After pulp and tissue is removed, the inside of the root canal is cleaned and shaped to remove all debris and bacteria.


Filling and sealing the canal

The cleaned canal is then filled and sealed to prevent further infection and decay.

Perla Dental uses cutting-edge technology and instrumentation to perform trusted root canal procedures from our team of dental experts. If you are in pain, schedule a same day consultation with Perla Dental today. We offer financing options and a caring team to help you get the dental care you need.

How to Take Care of Dentures?

Dentures are an investment in your oral health and appearance. Proper care and maintenance is important to maintain function, gum health, and look of your dentures.

Cleaning & Maintenance:

  1. Rinse dentures thoroughly after eating to remove food particles.
  2. Brush dentures using a soft-bristled brush and a gentle denture cleaner.
  3. Soak dentures overnight in a denture-cleaning solution to eliminate stains or bacteria.

Handling and Storage:

  1. Handle your dentures carefully and always hold them over a smooth surface in case they slip out of your hands.
  2. Store your dentures in a clean, dry container with a lid when not wearing them. Don’t leave them in the open, as they can accumulate dust or get damaged.

Common Issues with Dentures and How to Address Them:

  1. Loose or ill-fitting dentures: Such dentures can cause discomfort or even lead to mouth sores. Speak with your dentist and get the devices adjusted or replaced if needed.
  2. Irritation or sores in the mouth: In this case, take out your dentures. Now, rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water. Speak with your dentist if the problem persists.
  3. Stains or discoloration: Dentures can become stained or discolored over the course of their usage. Regularly clean and soak them in water to remove some of these stains.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is a root canal painful?

During a root canal, the patient is administered local anesthesia to numb the affected area although some discomfort and pressure might be experienced during the procedure. After a root canal procedure, you may experience additional discomfort for a few days which can be effectively controlled with non-prescription pain medication.

  • How much does a root canal cost?

The cost of a root canal depends on the complexity of the case (including tooth location and severity of the infection or damage). Root canals typically run between $450 – $1,500 per tooth.

  • How does endodontic treatment save the tooth?

Endodontic treatment, or a root canal, saves a tooth by taking away the infected or damaged pulp tissue from inside the tooth’s root canals. It then cleans and shapes the canals and fills and seals them to prevent further infection and decay.

  • How long does a root canal take?

Generally, a root canal procedure takes 45 – 60 minutes to complete – per tooth. If the damage is severe, it may be longer, or you may need to visit the dentist several times before the procedure is completed. Your dental team will provide estimates based on your specific case.

  • What should I expect after a root canal?

After a root canal procedure, you may experience some soreness or sensitivity that will last for a few days and can usually be managed with non-prescription pain medication. After the treatment, it is critical to maintain good oral hygiene and do not eat hard or sticky foods. You can, however, engage in daily activities immediately after a root canal treatment.

  • How successful is root canal treatment?

The success of a root canal depends on the extent of the infection and how quick was the intervention. Smaller infections have a better prognosis although the longer you wait, the worse the prognosis.
