Periodontist 89129


Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is quite common in America, accounting for roughly ¾ of adult tooth loss. Simply put, periodontal disease is a form of decay. With any type of decay, if it is left ignored, it will get more and more severe until in this case, your tooth completely falls out on its own. This would be a very painful process.

Causes of Gum Disease

The cause of almost all gum disease cases is bacteria. Our mouth is loaded with a lot of bacteria that find their way in between the gaps of our teeth. Not all bacteria are bad; in fact it is considered healthy to have a balance. However, when too much bacteria offset this balance, then we begin to see plaque buildup that leads to Periodontitis and Gingivitis.

In short, gum disease is caused by a lack of dental home care hygiene. Routine brushing and flossing practices may effectively manage this bacterium.

In-Office Treatments for Gum Disease

When at home treatments have not provided results, then you must turn to your family dentist for assistance.

First Approach

  1. Professional dental cleaning – a professional dental cleaning is different from one received at home because the dentist 89129 (or hygienist) have tools that remove plaque and tartar above and below the gum line.
  2. Scaling and root planning – a deep cleaning procedure that involves the scraping away of plaque and tartar deep under the gum line. Anesthesia may need to be applied.

Second Approach

If the first approach procedures have not provided relief or if your gum disease is at a point where swift action is needed, then you may be considered to a specialist for various oral surgery procedures.

  • Pocket reduction surgery – also called flap surgery, this procedure involves lifting the gums back to remove the presence of tartar.
  • Bone grafts – performed to replace fragments of bone that may have been lost to periodontal disease decay. In severe cases, bone surgery may be recommended by our dentist 89129.
  • Gum grafts – performed to replace gums that may have receded as a result of gum disease.

★★★★★ I am absolutely terrified of the dentist. So much so that I had not been in a really long time. When we moved to Las Vegas in 2009 I was referred to Dr. Tran at Cheyenne Dental by my daughter's orthodontist. The entire office staff understood my fear and worked with me to explain every single step of the entire process. Dr. Tran is gentle, kind and thorough. He not only explained the procedures but also provided education regarding dental health
