Dr. Curry Leavitt Provides Education, Prevention and Treatment of Gum Disease in Las Vegas, NV, to Support National Gum Care Month
Date:9/14/2017

Leading periodontist, Dr. Curry Leavitt, celebrates National Gum Care Month by providing his community with the latest information and advances in the prevention and treatment of gum disease in Las Vegas, NV. Early signs of a problem include redness, tenderness and bleeding gums, and people who visit Dr. Leavitt’s practice can find relief with little to no discomfort through BIOLASE® WaterLase® iPlus 2.0™ laser gum surgery.

Those with good dental hygiene habits are taking proactive steps toward healthy teeth and gums. However, genetic conditions, crowded teeth and other factors often lead to the buildup of bacteria below the gum line. This causes irritation of the sensitive tissues around the roots of teeth, and as infection takes hold, bleeding gums signal a problem. If a person with gum disease in Las Vegas, NV, does not seek treatment in the early stages, “periodontal” pockets will form that pull the gums away from the teeth, creating recession and pain. Bacteria may also enter the bloodstream through the gums, and scientists have discovered these microorganisms elsewhere in the body where health conditions such heart disease or cancer is present.

Once gum disease has progressed to this stage for people in Las Vegas, NV, they typically must undergo oral surgery to treat infection and bacteria and remove the buildup from the roots of teeth. Traditionally, this involves cutting the gums to provide a periodontist with access to the affected area, but Dr. Leavitt offers a less invasive solution with the WaterLase dental laser. A stream of water and a beam of calibrated light dissolves decayed tissue between the gum line and the teeth, so no incisions are necessary. Not only does he laser clean the infected area, but it also cauterizes the wounds, improving healing time and reducing chances of further infection. Recovery generally takes days rather than weeks, and some patients report feeling no discomfort at all during the procedure.
