About Periodontal Disease

Gum Disease in Phoenix

In Phoenix, gum disease is treated with skill and experience by the team at Blue Periodontics and Implants. We specialize in treating gums and keeping them healthy, and we know how to correct the problems that occur. Guiding you toward the healthiest smile possible is our specialty.

When bacteria infect your gums, it’s often not immediately noticeable. Unless there is an abscess around a tooth, you will rarely feel pain with a periodontal infection. Left untreated, however, this disease can cause you to lose teeth. Not only that, but it can lead to other health problems such as heart disease. That’s why it is important to have regular examinations and cleanings. If there is a problem found, you’ll get the care you need at Blue Periodontics and Implants.

There are certain signs that indicate the possibility of periodontal infection. These include:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Tenderness and swelling
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Halitosis (bad breath)

We urge you to make an appointment with our office if you notice one or more of these signs. Even if everything seems normal, it’s a good idea to come in for check-ups and cleanings approximately every six months. If potential problems are caught early, it can save you a lot of trouble later on.

When you need Phoenix gum disease care, you will get the skilled, individualized treatment you deserve at Blue Periodontics and Implants. Our friendly and helpful office staff is committed to making your experience here a positive one. Call us today.
