Gum Disease Treatment in Gilbert, AZ

Gum disease has been referred to as the “silent killer” because in its early stages it often doesn’t display any symptoms you might notice at home. However, catching and treating gum disease early on is crucial to the health of your gums and your teeth. It affects your overall health too, as gum infection has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions. Gilbert gum disease treatment from Scott Condie Dentistry can help you:

  • Maintain healthy gums that look attractive
  • Put an end to bleeding gums when you brush or floss
  • Improve the quality of your breath
  • Prevent gum recession and tooth loss
  • Reduce your risk of adverse health effects linked to gum disease

Take Care of Your Smile With Our Gum Treatment

At your routine dental cleanings and exams, we always check for signs of gum disease. The reason is simple – almost half of adults ages 30-64 have some form of gum disease. That’s a lot of smiles that are in potential danger! If we find evidence of gum disease during your exam, we’ll make recommendations for treatment depending on your circumstances and the stage of disease you’re in:

  • Laser Gum Disease Treatment – Dr. Condie will use a gentle, low-power laser to remove built-up bacteria, plaque, and tartar from around and below your gumline. The treatment quickly and comfortably reduces inflammation and promotes healing.
  • Scaling and Root Planing – This is the classic gum disease treatment. We’ll use special instruments to scale (remove) build-up around your gumline, then we’ll smooth your tooth roots to discourage the regrowth of bacteria.
  • Perio Protect® – Your treatment may require the use of custom trays and a special medication you use at home. Perio Protect is a great way to keep gum disease away in between checkups.

Call us today at 480-485-7585 for gum disease treatment in Gilbert. We look forward to helping you enjoy the healthiest gums possible!

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and under your gumline. Your hygienist or dentist will use special instruments to carefully get your gums back into shape, or they will use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back at the same time. We may also use Perio Protect®, which is special medicine delivered using custom-fit trays.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Our team is dedicated to providing you the most comfortable treatment possible. We use a local anesthetic that will numb your gums so you don’t feel any discomfort. If laser treatment is needed, it is a quick and painless method for eliminating infection from your gums. In addition, sedation options are available to help you relax during your treatment.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
