Personalized Periodontal Disease Treatment for Sun City West, AZ, Patients

Maintaining the health of your teeth is very important, but it’s equally important to maintain the health of your gums, which helps prevent tooth loss. According to the CDC, 46% of Americans over the age of 30 show signs of periodontal (gum) disease. Fortunately, periodontal disease can be reversed if it’s caught and treated early, and Burns Dentistry is pleased to offer individualized periodontal disease treatment for patients in Sun City West, Arizona.

The Stages of Periodontal Disease

There are three main stages of gum disease:

  • Gingivitis – This is the precursor to periodontitis. Gingivitis symptoms are often mild, but may include red, swollen, and inflamed gums, bleeding when brushing or flossing, receding gums, and chronic bad breath. It’s crucial to identify and treat gingivitis early to prevent it from developing into periodontitis.
  • Periodontitis – In this phase of the disease, pockets form between the teeth and gums. Food, plaque, and bacteria begins to collect in these pockets, which can cause infections. This can lead to damage to the surrounding bone from both the infection and the body’s immune response.
  • Advanced periodontitis – The connective tissue is destroyed, which causes shifting or loose teeth. It can be accompanied by painful abscesses, tooth loss, and severely receding gums.
