Gum Disease Treatment in Scottsdale, Arizona

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a common but potentially serious oral health condition. The problem occurs when the gums become irritated or infected due to exposure to bacteria, tartar, and plaque. Left untreated, gum disease can have serious consequences, including tooth loss.

In its early stages, gum disease will seem minor. Your gums might appear slightly swollen and dark, and they may bleed during brushing and flossing. Many people choose to ignore these symptoms allowing the condition to progress. Soon, the gums may begin to retract and pull away from the teeth creating “pockets” between the teeth and gums. These are prime environments for bacteria and plaque to grow and spread throughout the mouth. If the bacteria and plaque reach the jawbone, it can decay and deteriorate, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss.Gum and bone loss aside, the dangers of untreated and advanced periodontal disease can wreak havoc on your health and coincide with diseases such as stroke, heart disease, respiratory disease, pregnancy complications, diabetes, and osteoporosis. The good news is that when you combine effective oral hygiene with regular dental appointments, you can easily prevent periodontal disease from happening or worsening. If you experience any pain or discomfort with your teeth, gums, or surrounding tissue, please schedule an appointment with us right away.

I make the drive from South Tempe just to go to Cholla Family Dentistry! Dr. Beischel and his staff are not only professional and knowledgable – they are extremely friendly and welcoming. Everyone treats you like family. I would highly recommend Dr. Beischel to anyone looking for a great dentist in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

Always a pleasure – and I have not said that often about a dentist! Having implant surgeries – so well done, only discomfort, not pain afterwards. Very caring and personable.
