About Periodontal Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, also commonly referred to as gum disease, is an oral infection which affects the tissues in your mouth responsible for holding your teeth into place. Gingivitis (the first stage of periodontitis) is typically caused by poor oral hygiene and dental care, allowing plaque and bacteria to build up in the mouth. As the patient continues to neglect their oral health and the periodontal disease progresses, patients tend to experience inflamed, tender, bleeding and receding gums, loose teeth and ultimately even tooth loss.

Our Periodontal Treatment

Were you aware that the first stage of periodontal disease, gingivitis, is actually curable? However, once the condition progresses into more advanced stages, treatment can only manage the symptoms. If you have periodontitis, our gum disease treatment in Gilbert can help, we are proud to offer:

Tooth Scaling Gilbert

During tooth scaling your dentist will gently but thoroughly remove any plaque, bacteria, and tartar on your smile, ensuring that every corner of your mouth is clean.

Root Planing Gilbert

Root planing involves smoothening the tooth roots, which allows the gums to re-attach properly. Root planing can be useful in helping the gums properly heal and prevent further infection.

Those that neglect to treat their periodontal gum disease often experience many complications such as infections, teeth shifting and even tooth loss. Recent research has also shown that sufferers of gum disease are also more likely to have heart disease and diabetes!
