Patient Reviews


“I've been going here for over two years and have always had a great experience.This office is very chic and modern. They must have had their patients in mind when building this location. Every room is equipt with a flat screen TV and headset so that you can watch your favorite show while you get your teeth worked on. This really helps make any procedure pass quickly because the last thing anyone wants to hear is the sound of the drill. Another thing I enjoy is that their chairs have little massagers that will help sooth and calm you through your procedure.The receptionist here is very knowledgeable and will take the time to explain what is and isn't covered by your insurance.I love that they have always been punctual. You'll never sit around and wait past your appointment time.Dr. Aaron Breaux is gentle and will make every procedure as close to painless as possible.” - Sandra L.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

The only way you can know for sure whether you have gum disease is by having a thorough exam from your dentist. Gum disease does not always present with symptoms, so you may still have a periodontal infection even if you’re not showing signs of the disease.

However, there are a few common symptoms that are a strong indication that gum disease is present:

  • Your gums bleed when you brush, floss, or bite down on something hard or crunchy.
  • You’ve noticed that an area of your gum is red, inflamed, or swollen.
  • Your gums seem to be receding or pulling away from your teeth.
  • You experience chronic, persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
  • Your teeth feel loose.

Gum disease progresses through several stages. If we catch it in its earliest stage, we'll develop a personalized treatment plan, including thorough professional cleanings and follow-up visits. Later stages may require a deep cleaning, antibiotic therapy, and more frequent visits for cleanings. In some cases, Dr. Breaux may refer you to a specialist for advanced treatment.

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, please call our Bakersfield dental office to arrange a professional cleaning and exam. The sooner we start treatment, the sooner we can get your oral health back on track.
