Preventative dentistry is critical to prevent the loss of teeth due to gum disease. The term periodontal disease includes the reversible disease of gingivitis and extends to more advanced stages of periodontitis. Our superbly trained, knowledgeable, and experienced dental hygienists will perform your routine cleaning, periodontal maintenance, or—if necessary—root planing procedures. Should you require 2nd-stage periodontal treatment, Dr. Celeste M. Eckerman will either perform these procedures or refer to a gum specialist, a periodontist. Please call 775-782-2799 if you are concerned about gum disease in Minden, Nevada, and would like to see our dentist.
