Gum Disease Treatment near Sparks, NV

gum treatment near sparks nvTop-Quality Treatment for Your Best Smile

Gum disease can cause an array of health problems if not cared for promptly. Without regular brushing and flossing, plaque builds up and harbors bacteria. Gum disease leads to bacteria traveling to the tooth root and will cause bone loss over time. However, the good news is that early treatment generally reverses gum disease! Our expert team offers gum disease treatment near Sparks, NV, to assist you in getting your best gum health.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, which, while the easiest stage to treat, can be hard to detect on your own. Your dentist will be able to detect it for you and determine the best course of treatment. If you do experience symptoms, they may include sensitive, bleeding gums. With a deep cleaning and regular brushing, gingivitis is easy to reverse. If left untreated, the disease will worsen and progress to periodontal disease, with chronic bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. This can cause bone loss and permanent damage to the gums.

If you have these symptoms, you should see your dentist immediately. Regular checkups and cleanings can help prevent gum disease.

Causes of Gum Disease

There are some factors that cause gum disease to develop, such as:

  • Excessive sugar in the diet
  • Diabetes
  • Lack of brushing or flossing
  • Oral piercings
  • Smoking
  • Crooked teeth

Genetic factors also play a part in gum disease. Some patients will need routine deep cleanings to prevent the development of the disease.

How Gum Treatments Work

Gum treatment will help get rid of the cause of inflammation, which is usually tartar buildup. Gum treatment removes the disease-causing bacteria and allows the gums to heal.

There are two parts to gum treatment:

  1. Periodontal Scaling – Removes calculus, tartar, and plaque from the surface of your teeth.
  2. Root Planing – Gets rid of the roughened cementum and surface dentin that has calculus buildup harboring bacteria and toxins.

Your dentist may provide medication if a gum infection present. If the condition is severe, surgery or dental implants may be necessary.

Had a recent visit to Atencio Dentistry as a new patient; staff was wonderful and accommodating to my disability needs from appointment scheduling to cleaning. My hygienist was very gentle. Dr. Atencio was present to review my dental X-rays and properly evaluated what needed to be done. Needed referral for evaluation for my jaw discomfort. Will be back to get what needs to be done and for my next cleaning.

Dr. Atencio and his staff are so friendly, kind, gentle and professional! I had a tooth pulled today, and everyone was awesome. Dr. Atencio was amazing and when he was done I was shocked that the tooth had been pulled. I highly recommend Dr. Atencio for any of your dental needs!

I like Karian, my new hygienist. She is personable, professional, knows her craft and made me feel comfortable and at ease. A very nice addition to Atencio's team. I also love the new air filtering equipment that has been added in each hygienist work station. An extra measure of precaution during this pandemic.
Nice to see a profession that is so proactive and protective during these challenging times
