Periodontal disease and gum disease are broader terms for a range of conditions that cause inflammation of the gums. Patients often consider these conditions as easily treatable. However, in severe cases, periodontal disease can lead to abscesses and even tooth loss. Gingivitis (which is the early stage of periodontal disease) may clear up with effective general dentistry. It is important to visit your dentist to avoid serious issues from developing.

There are several effective treatments for periodontal disease, ranging from cleanings to surgical options. Dr. Tejal will carry out a comprehensive exam to evaluate the extent of the problem before making treatment recommendations. Much of the work used to combat periodontal disease takes place at home. Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, provides excellence in education when it comes to effective oral healthcare. We want to ensure that you and your family benefit from only the best preventive dentistry measures.

Symptoms and Causes of Gum Disease

The common symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, especially when brushing or eating hard food, spitting blood after brushing or flossing, bad breath, a metallic taste in the mouth and teeth that look longer due to receding gums. Other symptoms may include deep pockets forming between the teeth and gums or teeth that are loose.

Gum disease is typically caused by a lack of oral hygiene. However, there are other causes that warrant investigation, such as poor nutrition and diabetes. Attending regular checkups with Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, will help us to identify gum disease early so you can receive the treatments you need. If you are experiencing any of the associated symptoms of gum disease, make an appointment at our office today.

Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, is committed to your continued health and well-being. Gum disease may be the result of an underlying health issue. Reach out to our team if you have any concerns and would like to book an appointment.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
