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 or a small pill if you need help feeling calm. Oral sedation does require you to have someone to drive you home, 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 online.
