Treat Periodontal Disease With A Periodontist In Yuma

treat periodontal disease with a periodontist in Yuma AZ and Fortuna FoothillsIt is said that as many as eighty percent of Americans will suffer from one stage or another of gum disease throughout their lifetime. Gum disease – which is also known as periodontal disease – can cause a number of problems including the deterioration of gum tissue, persistent bad breath, gums that bleed, and even tooth loss.

Having gum disease/periodontal disease poses additional risks beyond just tooth loss if it remains untreated by a periodontist. In fact, in recent studies gum disease has been linked with increasing chances of:

  •    Risk of stroke
  •    Chronic inflammation
  •    General inflammation
  •    Blood pressure issues (typically high)
  •    Heart issues
  •    Certain forms of memory loss

As any periodontist will tell you, gum disease isn’t something to be trifled with and should be taken seriously so that permanent side effects can be avoided. The first defense against periodontal disease is proper care of your teeth. Our Yuma dentist team works hard to educate each of our patients in proper tooth and gum care so you can have a good first line of defense against this terrible disease.

Beyond taking care of your teeth by having high standards of oral health care, getting a regular tooth cleaning can make a big difference. At a regular tooth cleaning, our Yuma team carefully helps remove built up plaque and tartar which over time can result in the formation of gum disease and other issues such as tooth decay.

If you already suffer from periodontal disease, we can help you get the periodontist care that you deserve. At The Yuma Dentist, we utilize both OralDNA and dental lasers to help our Yuma – Fortuna Foothills patients recover from this affliction, and get their oral health back on target.

We are proud to be able to help our patients prevent and stop this awful disease in its tracks utilizing modern dental technology, all from the comfort of our Yuma location. Have more questions for about gum disease? Call our team today if you are in the area, including Fortuna Foothills!
