General and Preventive Dentistry from your Henderson, NV, Dentist
Dr. Hollingshead educates all of his patients on the best methods for brushing and flossing your teeth at home. However, nothing can take the place of a professional cleaning in our office. Our hygienists use special high-speed instruments that can remove surface stains that would otherwise tarnish your smile. In addition to cleaning your teeth, we’ll also closely examine your teeth for any signs of cavities and take routine x-rays to find decay that may be below the enamel surface of a tooth or in between two teeth.
Your gum health will be assessed, too. Periodontal disease has been shown to exist to some degree in about 80 percent of American adults. This bacterial infection cannot only affect the health of your mouth, but your general health, as well. The first symptoms of gum disease are sensitive and swollen gum tissue that may bleed when you brush or try to floss. Advanced symptoms include bad breath, deepened gum pockets around your teeth, pus buildup, and ultimately loose teeth and even tooth loss. Henderson, NV, dentist Dr. Hollingshead offers periodontal therapy to reverse the oral health consequences of gum disease and stop the spread of the bacteria that cause gum disease.
