Gum Disease Treatment

Treat Periodontal Disease in Phoenix

periodontal disease and gum disease treatment with a Mesa dentist in Phoenix

Three out of four Americans have gum disease, which can be more damaging to oral health than cavities. There is little to no pain associated with the early stage of gum disease, so many people are unaware they are affected. Untreated, gum disease can lead to painful, tender gums, bad breath, jaw deterioration and tooth loss. The bacteria associated with gum disease can also negatively impact vital systems of the body, including the heart, lungs, and kidneys.

Gum health is of primary concern at Harris Dental. Our hygienists specialize in the identification of bacterial infection, and customize treatment for each individual patient according to their specific needs. They use the latest in ultrasonic and laser instruments to treat and repair damaged tissues, and to restore oral health. Caring for your smile goes beyond creating straight, bright teeth; a great smile begins with pink, healthy gums, so come visit one of our Phoenix area locations.

Periodontal disease is usually indicated by a variety of symptoms. If you have a combination of any of these signs, there is a chance that you may need gum disease treatment:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Teeth that appear longer
  • Teeth that feel loose
  • Pus around the gums or teeth
  • Gums that are pulling away from your teeth
  • Frequent or constant bad smelling breath

On top of all of these symptoms, gum disease has been linked in a number of studies to other health problems. Some of these problems include:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes complications
  • Babies with low birth weights from pregnant mothers
  • Premature birth of babies from pregnant mothers

Having periodontal disease is a serious risk to your long term health. One of the very best things that you can do for your gum health is to get a regular tooth cleaning. During a tooth cleaning our team will work to clear away built up plaque and tartar that contributes to this disease.

At Harris Dental, we also offer a cutting edge perio program that assists our patients with combating periodontal disease. Our perio program uses modern treatment technologies (such as OralDNA) that can comfortably and effectively fight back against the bacterial infections that cause this problem.

If you have gum disease, we want to help you receive gum disease treatment that will assist you in returning to optimal oral health. If you have questions about gum disease, gum disease treatment or anything else, please call us today in Phoenix or Mesa!
