If Dr. Roger Anderson diagnoses you with periodontal disease, he may recommend a deep dental cleaning to remove harmful bacteria and fight the disease in your mouth. Gum disease can be devastating if untreated, and our Lakewood dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help keep your mouth free from disease-causing factors so that you can once again enjoy good oral health. If Dr. Roger Anderson examines your mouth and determines that more extensive or complex treatments are required, we will refer you to a trusted specialist so that you can receive the care you need.

Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative dental condition caused by the bacteria found in plaque. These bacteria infect and inflame your soft oral tissues, causing the beginning stages of gum disease and eventually leading to the loss of your gum and bone tissue if left untreated. Common symptoms of gum disease include: 

  • Gums that are swollen, red or tender 

  • Gums that bleed easily

  • Loose teeth

  • Persistent bad breath 

  • Pain when chewing 

  • Changes in your bite or the fit of an oral appliance 

  • Pus between the teeth 

  • Gum recession 



Dr. Roger Anderson will check for gum disease during each of your regular dental exams. If you are diagnosed with this condition, we will work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan. 

There are a variety of treatments available to help you manage periodontal disease, ranging from deep dental cleanings performed at our dental clinic to surgical procedures performed by a periodontist. Dr. Roger Anderson will examine your mouth thoroughly to determine which treatment or combination of treatments will be most effective in helping you regain a healthy mouth and smile. 

If you have any questions about deep dental cleanings or other periodontal treatments in Lakewood, Colorado, and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Roger Anderson, call us today at 303-232-6205.
