Our office is 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 even contribute to severe health conditions, including:
- Pregnancy complications
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
To avoid these serious dental and health problems, Dr. Bruce E. Crowley and our dental team are pleased to offer non-surgical gum treatments. One of the most effective periodontal treatments is scaling and root planing. This is method for deep cleaning the parts of the teeth covered by gum tissue. Bacteria deposits can grow here and cause the surrounding areas to become inflamed and show symptoms of gum disease.
If your gums are tender, swollen, red or bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. We encourage you to contact our dental office to schedule a periodontal appointment in Las Vegas, Nevada. Call 702-838-9863 and our caring dentist can help you come up with an effective periodontal treatment plan. We look forward to helping you overcome gum disease and again enjoy a healthy smile.
