What is Gum Disease?

Gum Disease is an infection of the tissues and ligaments that hold your teeth in place. This condition is typically caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar along the gum line. Poor oral hygiene, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, genetics, medications, and other systemic diseases can contribute to the severity of the disease.

When caught early, gum disease is very treatable. However, if left untreated, it can cause more serious issues such as reduced bone density and tooth loss. We work with you to catch gum disease early and prevent further complications. Our Henderson gum health experts provide treatments that help restore your gum health and promote a beautiful smile for life.

Keeping Your Informed at Every Step

Diagnosing the symptoms of gum diseaseOur team believes that the more you know about your teeth and gums, the better you'll be able to take care of your smile between visits. We work to ensure you are well-informed about the current state of your oral health and the treatments we are recommending. By showing you the x-rays and using an intraoral camera, we help you make informed decisions about your treatment. Your oral health affects your overall well-being, and Dr. Rorman dedicates his talents to helping you have the healthiest smile possible.

What does Gum Disease Look Like?

In the early stages of gum disease, known as gingivitis, you may not even be aware of a problem. Regular exams allow our team to provide proactive treatment and prevent the disease from advancing. Some of the common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Gums that are bright red, swollen, or painful
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Pain when chewing or biting
  • Loose teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gum tissue

Innovative and Compassionate Gum Treatments

We know that going to the dentist for treatment can be stressful for many individuals. We offer compassionate and friendly care, along with oral sedation for adults to help alleviate any stress you may be feeling. Our treatments address your gum issues directly and as gently as possible.

A gum health check thoroughly assesses your condition before beginning any procedures. Our team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Deep cleanings remove the plaque and tartar along and under your gum line and promote healthy tissue regrowth. We also use ARESTIN® in conjunction with our root planing and scaling procedures to stop infection.

Maintenance cleaning is a follow-up procedure to maintain the health of your gums. Fluoride varnish treatments are also used to protect your teeth and gums, promoting a healthy and long-lasting smile.

Laser gum therapy is used to clean out the bacteria from the deep pockets of your gums. By using a soft tissue laser, we can remove the inflamed gum tissue from around your teeth without using a scalpel. Laser gum therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that has a quicker recovery time than more traditional treatments.

An oral cancer screening is performed once a year. We use the VELscope® sensor to get a clear picture of the tissues, ligaments, and surrounding areas of your mouth. Should we find anything concerning, our team is ready to help you determine the next treatment phases.
