If you’re in need of an affordable Las Vegas periodontist, you’re in luck. Our dentist specializes in gum disease in Las Vegas and can help you treat and prevent dental problems.
What is gum disease? Gum disease is defined as an excessive amount of bacteria in the gums and mouth. It is usually caused by plaque, but other factors can contribute to gum disease as well. If left untreated, gum disease may lead to the loss of teeth or the surrounding oral tissues.
What are the warning signs of gum disease? The following may be signs of gum disease:
Chronic bad breath
A foul taste that won’t go away
Tender or swollen gums
Gums that look visually swollen (extra pink and/or red coloration)
How can I prevent gum disease? The best way to prevent gum disease is by regularly visiting your dentist every six months. In addition to your dental cleaning, your hygienist and dentist will be able to identify and prevent any problems before they arise. Taking good care of your teeth between visits is also paramount to preventing gum disease.
If I have gum disease, what can I do? Most cases of gum disease can be treated non-surgically. However, some cases may require periodontics at our Las Vegas practice. When you meet with the dentist, we will make our recommendations at that time.
