Gum disease treatment in Gilbert & Mesa, AZ.
What is periodontal disease?
When gums become infected with bacteria, it can lead to serious problems. If an infection is not treated, bacteria can begin to circulate throughout the body, which can aggravate other bodily systems, in some cases leading to:

Plus, gum disease can threaten your teeth. All these factors mean that periodontal disease treatment is extremely important both to your dental health and overall physical health.

How do we clean up gum disease?
Laser Dentistry for Gum Disease TreatmentFor some cases, we use a soft tissue laser for gum disease treatment. Dental lasers can painlessly reshape gums, destroy bacterial infections, and stimulate new gum tissue to grow. They are part of a periodontal disease treatment plan that will protect your teeth and gums for the long-term.
Periodontal disease prevention with AlloDerm.
We also use the AlloDerm system for high-tech gum grafts, which protect your tooth roots when a large amount of gum tissue has been lost. In the past, dentists’ only option was to remove gum tissue from one area of the mouth and graft it onto the exposed section.
But now, AlloDerm is available. It is a safe gum replacement tissue matrix that contains DNA that stimulates your own gums to grow more quickly. This eliminates the need for additional surgery to remove gum tissue from healthy areas of your gums. We can focus just on the gum graft, which will help you heal and recover more quickly after the procedure.
