    What You Need to Know about Gingivitis or Gum Disease

    January 25th, 2011
    For a long time only dentists were aware of the condition called gingivitis.  Thanks to a plethora of toothpaste commercials in recent years, it seems that everyone is now aware of this condition.
    Gingivitis is not to be taken lightly.  This degradation of the gums can be an indication of more serious underlying health problems.

    I am Dr. Eric Hibbs and I’ve see hundreds of people in my Dallas office suffering from gingivitis and often don’t even know that they have it. One telltale sign of gingivitis is receding gum lines.

    If you’ve noticed that your gums are receding and you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, it makes sense to visit a dentist as soon as possible. If you live in the Dallas area, you can drop by my office at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216, 75209, I’d be happy to assist you.

    Gingivitis Can Lead to Tooth Loss

    A regular dental appointment not only stops tooth loss caused by decay, it also stops tooth loss related to gingivitis. As the gums become more diseased and weakened, tooth loss is inevitable. There are things that can be done to stop gingivitis, but you have to go see a dentist as soon as possible. So if you want to keep all your teeth and have noticed receding gums, get to the dentist soon.

    Underlying problems

    You may not know this, but gingivitis can be an indicator that a person may suffer from a stroke or heart attack in the near future.  My job as a dentist is to keep people healthy.  This doesn’t just stop with your teeth.

    So if you live in Dallas, Tx and think your teeth are all right but your gums have been receding, please make an appointment to see me today at my Dallas office.

    You can also call my office at 214-DENTIST.

    Suffering from Bad Breath? A Dentist Can Help

    January 9th, 2011
    You know, it’s very common to be told that you have bad breath, but it can be a real blow to your self-esteem.  Now maybe it’s just because you had garlic bread for lunch, but there could be more serious causes to your bad breath.  I’m dentist Dr. Eric Hibbs, and believe it or not, questions about bad breath are very common for dentists to hear. What people don’t know is that bad breath doesn’t always indicate that someone does not brush their teeth or that they have a penchant for garlicky foods.
    In fact, there are many potentially serious causes behind bad breath.

    Bad Breath is Embarrassing

    Besides the possibility of serious problems, bad breath is just plain embarrassing. It is so awkward to have bad breath and to have to go into social situations. Many people don’t know this, but even a small amount of tooth decay can cause some serious breath issues. This is just another reason why visiting me, Dr. Hibbs  for a checkup and cleaning is so very important.

    Bad breath can actually be a blessing to some, in that the social stigma can force many people to finally make a dentist appointment. Don’t let it get bad before you visit a dentist; it is something that everyone should do to avoid potential problems.

    One of the most common causes for bad breath is gingivitis.  Commonly known as gum disease, gingivitis can be a very serious indicator of underlying health problems, so if you have bad breath it’s a good decision to visit my Dallas office.

    If it’s been a while since you’ve been to the dentist or if you don’t have a regular dentist to visit, my office is located at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216, Dallas, Tx.  You can also call me at 214-DENTIST to set up an appointment or click on this link to schedule a consultation with me, Dr. Hibbs.


    Root Canal

    January 1st, 2011
    There are few word combinations that cause fear and anxiety, like ‘root canal’. Though this is a common dental procedure, it seems to make most people very nervous just think about it. Like most things related to the dentist, most of these fears are
    understandable, but really unfounded. Today there are more types of pain methodology available for dentists to use than ever before. If you’ve been diagnosed as being in need of a root canal, you may be a little bit worried, but there’s no need to worry. My name is Dr. Eric Hibbs, and my dental office is located at ~~5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216~~ Dallas, Tx.

    Root canals are common part of my job and I treat many patients in my Dallas office.

    Root Canals Can Be Intimidating

    Many people have suggested changing the name of the root canal because it has so many negative connotations for people. Unfortunately, if you change the name, you can’t really change the process. At my Dallas office I take care to perform every root canal with precision and care. I don’t want any of my patients to be more uncomfortable than they have to be. My goal is always to alleviate pain whenever possible to make my patients’ visit pleasant.

    While no dentist can promise an absolutely pain-free root canal, modern uses of medication and relaxation techniques can help to ease the burden and reduce the fear and pain. The best advice anyone can give you when dealing with fear of pain at the dentist is to keep a relaxed and open mind.

    I, Dr. Hibbs am a professional and I have the expertise to help you get through these procedures with minimal pain and quick recovery times. Click here to make an appointment online, or call my office at 214-DENTIST. I can help you with your root canal. Do not delay and take action today.
