Improving Oral Health across Washoe County
A long-lasting smile is greatly attributed to the individual’s surrounding dental structures. Healthy gums, bone, and supporting tissues encourage a stronger bite and an attractive smile. Gum disease can threaten these supporting soft and hard oral tissues, contributing to issues like gum recession, bone atrophy, and tooth loss.
Treatments we offer for gum disease and advanced periodontal disease at our Reno office include:
Deep Cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, eliminates tartar buildup from below the gum line using manual dental tools and allows gums to heal themselves and reattach to teeth. Once scaled, the surfaces of teeth are smoothed to remove any areas that can be greater susceptible to the development of plaque and tartar.
Surgical intervention may be required for advanced cases of periodontal disease to restore a patient’s oral health that has been severely compromised. Procedures such as bone and soft tissue grafting, ridge preservation, or crown lengthening can be administered to bolster surrounding dental structures and restore a patient back to good-standing health.
Prophylaxis may be administered at the as a preventive measure against the degenerative disease from advancing to periodontitis. This procedure ensures gums and oral health remains hygienic, providing the patient with the best chances for recovery.
Dr. Allman has over 30 years of experience helping clients recover from periodontal disease and restore their oral health. Most interventions are conducted right in our office, providing patients with greater convenience and shorter treatment timeframes. Severe cases may be referred to a trusted specialist when necessary.
Our team of highly trained dental professionals is dedicated to providing patients with the utmost comfort care. The hygienists on staff undergo training year round to ensure the methods we employ are up to date and comprehensive while also gentle.
Why is Treatment for Gum Disease Important?
While many believe gum disease ends right below the gum line, this is actually where it begins. Periodontal disease that has been left untreated has been linked to instances of heart disease, diabetes, complications during pregnancy, and other systemic-related issues.
Our practice works with your team of healthcare providers to ensure you’re receiving comprehensive care for your overall health.
