Gum Disease Treatment – Phoenix, AZ
Protecting More than Your Teeth
When it comes to your oral health, the condition of your gums matters just as much as your teeth. With that being said, about 50% of the U.S. adult population has some form of gum disease, which is a bacterial infection that can damage the tooth roots as well as the soft tissue that supports them. Gum disease has also been shown to be correlated with a much higher risk for conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and even dementia. Dr. Rodda takes gum health very seriously, which is why he offers a multitude of solutions for gum disease treatment in Phoenix at Complete Dental Care Paradise Valley designed to protect and restore healthy gums.

Scaling & Root Planing
For patients with mild to moderate gum disease, scaling and root planing is often the first treatment recommended. It resembles a standard dental cleaning except that the focus is entirely on the gumline and roots of the teeth. These techniques serve to remove any bacteria-filled tartar deposits that are causing the infection as well as smooth out the rough surfaces of the roots. Together, this stops an ongoing infection and jump-starts the healing process.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment
More advanced gum disease calls for a more advanced solution, and at Complete Dental Care, that comes in the form of laser gum disease treatment. Using a concentrated beam of light, Dr. Rodda can precisely remove infected tissue and tartar while leaving any surrounding healthy gums alone. This level of accuracy makes the procedure extremely comfortable, and the laser itself emits no heat, sound, or vibration. Plus, the laser sanitizes and cauterizes as it works, leading to a short recovery while dramatically reducing post-treatment soreness compared to more traditional methods.
