Do your gum bleed when you brush and floss your teeth?
Dr. James White treats bleeding gums in Las Vegas, NV. This dental concern is often caused by gingivitis, or gum swelling, which precedes gum disease, or periodontitis. Gum disease is a medical condition that often goes undiagnosed as it progresses over time. As the infection spreads, gums may swell, bleed, and recede. In the most severe cases of gum disease, patients can lose their teeth. Know the signs of gum disease before symptoms worsen. Receive regular professional dental treatment to stave off infection and improve your oral health.

Gum disease can increase your risk of developing conditions such as:

If you have noticed any of these conditions and suspect they may be linked to gum disease, please call 702- 213-7220 to request a consultation with Dr. White. He will ensure that treatment fights off infection at the source while addressing your personal needs.
Gum Disease Treatments
Dr. White will assess your teeth and gums before treatment in order to determine which option works best for you. You should schedule a visit with our office twice a year so that we can check your tooth and gum health on a regular basis. Patients who develop gingivitis are often able to fight off bacteria through dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene routines.
It is important to catch gum disease early before the infection spreads and leads to more problems. Gum disease can be treated with antibacterial rinses, gum surgery, or laser therapy that includes scaling and root planing. If you request a consultation with Dr. White, he will be able to suggest the best treatment option to you or refer you to a specialist.
