Periodontal disease (which is also known as gum disease) is a condition caused by plaque and tartar. To prevent this disease, our dentists recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for a routine cleaning. At Preston Hollow Specialists, our exceptional hygienists have been with the practice for over 30 years providing personalized and individualized treatment to protect against gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.


Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition primarily caused by bacteria found in plaque. The bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, and when left untreated, can eventually cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. Untreated periodontal disease can result in bone loss, tooth loss, and gum tissue recession.


If your gums are swollen, red, or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of gum disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an exam at our office, our dentist and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.


The treatment for gum disease is based upon your specific dental needs. Depending on the severity of the condition, Dr. Hildebrand may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease. If you need a more advanced periodontal procedure we have several periodontal specialist colleagues that we work closely with to help you achieve and maintain optimal gum health. Please contact us today if you would like more information or to schedule a consultation in our Dallas, Texas office.

If your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is damaged, you may be unable to open or close your mouth entirely, you may hear a clicking or popping sound, or you may suffer from pain and inflammation in your jaw. If this is the case, Dr. Hildebrand and Dr. Alexander might recommend one of many services to treat this problem. Our dentists at Preston Hollow Specialists invite you to contact our office today if you would like more information about your treatment options for a damaged TMJ in Dallas, Texas.


The TMJ is the temporomandibular joint, or the joint that connects the lower jaw to the rest of the head. The term “TMJ” is often used to refer to TMJ disorder, also called TMD, which occurs when the jaw joint becomes stressed, injured, or misaligned. TMJ disorder may result due to several different factors, such as stress, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), arthritis in the TMJ, or trauma and injury to the head, neck, or jaw.


You may suffer from TMD if you experience frequent jaw pain or facial pain. TMJ disorders may also cause:


  • Grinding, clicking, or popping sounds in the jaw when you open and close your mouth
  • Inability to open your mouth wide to speak, yawn, or chew
  • A locked or stuck jaw
  • Pain when chewing and biting
  • Pain in the neck, shoulders, or ears
  • Frequent headaches


Dr. Hildebrand can help you determine the cause of your TMJ disorder and recommend the appropriate treatment. Treatment for the TMJ will depend on the cause and severity of your TMJ disorder. TMD treatment may include jaw and facial relaxation exercises, lifestyle changes, restorative dental treatments, a mouth guard or night guard, or jaw surgery.
