Periodontal gum disease is an extremely common condition which affects the gums and other supporting structures of the mouth and smile. During early stages, known as gingivitis, the condition can actually be completely reversed and cured, however, once periodontal gum disease advances, patients are stuck managing the symptoms for life. We recommend routine visits to your dentist to reduce your risk of gum disease and other dental complications.
When it comes to treating periodontal gum disease it is important to address the root cause of the issue. For many patients, poor oral hygiene and dental care is the problem. We recommend deep cleanings and more frequent, routine visits with your periodontist in Phoenix. Antibiotics may also be used to reduce the bacterial overgrowth in the mouth. In more severe cases of periodontal gum disease, surgery may be required to address the condition and manage the symptoms. It is important to start treatment as early as possible if you notice any signs of gum disease, schedule a visit with Garden Lakes Family Dentistry.
