Gum disease in Gilbert, Arizona, is one of the most serious dental issues that you can fall victim to, which is why it’s extremely important to get it treated right away. If you get it treated at the early stages of development, you will have a better chance of restoring your oral health. At the early stages, your dentist will be able to treat the disease with a non-surgical treatment. Some non-surgical treatments available include:

– Professional dental cleaning: Even though a professional dental cleaning is not generally used to treat gum disease, it’s often used to prevent it. However, if you are showing early signs of gum disease, you will need to come into our office more than twice a year to receive a cleaning. During this appointment, your dentist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile, which is extremely beneficial because plaque and tartar tend to create gum disease.

– Scaling and root planing: Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment that helps reverse the early stages of gum disease. During this treatment, your dentist will remove the plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line and will smooth out the surfaces of your tooth roots. This will help eliminate gum disease and will also help your gums reattach to your teeth.

To take advantage of one of these treatments so you can have the top-notch oral health you deserve, please call Somerset Family Dental at 480-359-1478 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Brandon J. Ryff. The sooner you come into our office, the sooner you’ll be able to save your teeth and gums and have the healthy smile you’ve always wanted!
