Gum disease affects more people than we think

When people think of oral health, they often only consider the health and well-being of their teeth. However, your gums also play a major role in overall oral health. Your gums are the soft tissues that hold and anchor your teeth. Therefore, they require a lot of care and attention.

Unfortunately, many people neglect their gums. It is estimated that nearly 80% of Americans suffer from some stage of periodontal disease, otherwise known as gum disease. Gum disease is known as the number one cause of tooth loss among adult Americans. This serious disease can be easily treated with gum disease therapy.

Treat your Gum Disease at Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry

To treat gum disease, we use a therapy known as root planing and scaling. This involves a deep cleaning of your teeth in order to eliminate the bacteria and germs that cause gum disease. This procedure will clean out bacteria from both underneath your gums and above them.

If you think may be suffering from gum disease, contact our office. Our talented team and skilled staff can help determine the source of your symptoms. Once we’ve determined you have gum disease, we can effectively treat your symptoms. We will also answer any questions or concerns you may have. Call our office today to schedule your appointment. We’ll help you get your oral health back on track!
