We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of dental care, and that includes educating them on the importance of good oral health. One important aspect of oral health is periodontal disease.

During routine checkups our expert hygienists will measure your gums to ensure you're gums are healthy.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen, or tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, receding gums, and persistent bad breath. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to schedule an appointment with our team as soon as possible.

Treatments for Periodontal Disease at Glendale Dental Smiles

At Glendale Dental Smiles, our experienced dentists provide a range of treatment options for periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Depending on the severity of your condition, our team may recommend one or more of the following treatments:

Professional Cleaning

In the early stages of gum disease, a professional cleaning can help remove the bacteria and plaque that cause infection. Our team will use specialized tools to carefully clean your teeth and gums, removing any buildup and reducing the risk of further damage.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene is essential for preventing periodontal disease and controlling the infection. Our team will provide you with personalized tips and techniques for maintaining good oral hygiene at home, including how to brush and floss properly.

Scaling and Root Planing

For more advanced cases of gum disease, our team may recommend scaling and root planing. This deep cleaning treatment removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and root surfaces, helping to control the infection and prevent further damage.


In some cases, our team may prescribe medication to help control the infection and promote healing of the gums. This may include antibiotics to kill bacteria or other medications to reduce inflammation and promote gum health.


In severe cases of periodontal disease, surgery may be necessary to restore the health of the gums. Our team will carefully evaluate your condition and recommend the most appropriate surgical treatment based on your needs and refer you to a specialist if needed.
