At Dr. Bruce Crowley’s office, we are committed to helping you prevent and treat periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is a serious dental condition that begins with the accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. If the disease is allowed to progress, it may result in tooth loss, bone loss, and gum loss. Serious cases of periodontal disease can also contribute to severe health conditions, including:
- Pregnancy complications
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
To avoid these serious dental and health problems, Dr. Crowley and our dental team are pleased to offer non-surgical gum treatments, including scaling and root planing (a deep cleaning method). If your gums are tender, swollen, red, or bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. We encourage you to contact our dental office in Las Vegas, Nevada today to schedule your appointment with our caring dentist. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health.
