Periodontal Treatment from Desert Springs Dental
Dr. Shandy Condie Can Help You Regain Your Oral Health at Last
Did you know that more than three out of four Americans suffer from some form of periodontal disease today? This condition (also commonly referred to as gum disease) may seem harmless enough in its earliest stages, but if it’s allowed to progress too far without being treated, it could lead to potentially dangerous consequences for your smile, including the loss of teeth. Research has even shown that periodontal disease can contribute negatively to ailments like cardiovascular disease and diabetes. At Desert Springs Dental in Gilbert, AZ, we take the threat of periodontal disease very seriously. That’s why we’ve invested in laser dentistry technology as an effective, convenient, and virtually painless method of restoring health to your mouth and helping you smile brighter.
How do I know if I’m suffering from periodontal disease?
Common symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Gums that seem red, swollen, and/or tender
- Gums that bleed whenever you brush or floss
- Constant bad breath
- A sudden change in the way your bite feels
- Teeth that appear longer (this means your gums are receding)
Of course, it’s also important to remember that in some cases, symptoms won’t manifest until periodontal disease has reached its most advanced stages. That’s why it’s important to attend thorough check-ups every six months with Dr. Condie! Our team will be happy to keep an eye on your smile.
