Enjoy Healthy Pink Gums With Periodontal Treatment

It’s important you don’t ignore signs of gum disease. If left untreated, you increase your risk for serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more. To restore your gums, Dr. Stanfield will use a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. Here is how it will work:

  • Before we begin, we’ll use an anesthetic to ensure the area is numb. You can also choose sedation with laughing gas, a small pill, or IV conscious sedation if you need help feeling calm. You will need to have someone drive you home if you receive oral or IV sedation, so be sure to plan in advance.
  • Once you’re ready, we’ll remove plaque and tartar from around and under your gumline (scaling).
  • Then Dr. Stanfield will smooth your tooth roots (root planing) to facilitate healing and prevent bacteria from accumulating.
  • We may need to see you again to prevent infection from reoccurring. You may also be interested in a gum recession treatment that uses a gum-colored material to restore your gumline’s appearance.

It’s understandable to feel nervous. In addition to our sedation options, we have a comfort menu. You may want a blanket, neck pillow, stress ball, ear plugs, or music to ease your nerves. You can also raise your hand if you need a break. There’s no reason to feel discomfort while at the dentist!

If you’ve noticed symptoms such as red or swollen gums, bleeding when you floss or brush, bad breath, or pain when you bite or chew, see us as soon as possible for gum disease treatment in Glendale. Call 623-244-4304 for an appointment or schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for the best results.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.

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.
