Scaling and Root Planning in Phoenix, AZ

Periodontal (gum) disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. When left untreated, periodontal disease can cause tooth, bone, and gum loss. The disease has also been linked to serious health disorders, including, but not limited to:

  • Pregnancy complications
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease

To protect yourself against the dangers associated with periodontal disease, it is imperative to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home. This includes daily flossing, brushing, and healthy eating. At Dr. Morgan and Associates in Phoenix, we can provide scaling and root planing, two non-surgical cleaning services, to help fight against and even reverse gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease. Please call or visit our office as soon as possible if you notice gums that red, bleed, or are swollen as these are the first signs of gum disease. Through comprehensive care and a good home hygiene routine, we can help you achieve optimal oral health once again!
