Are you concerned with how frequently your gums bleed? Have your teeth become sensitive due to receding gums? While bleeding and receding gums are not always an urgent issue, they could be a warning sign to a more serious problem. At Lane Family Dental, we are proud to serve the Wasilla community with comprehensive dentistry for the entire family. Our services include advanced procedures in general, restorative and cosmetic dental care. When it comes to your oral health, we take a proactive approach so that you can avoid detrimental consequences to your smile and overall health.
Dr. Jason Lane is an experienced dentist who can promptly treat your bleeding and receding gums. In fact, we offer a variety of periodontal treatments to restore your gum health. Gum disease is an oral health condition that we take seriously at Lane Family Dental. We take diligent measures to diagnose gum disease at its earliest, most treatable stage. When the gums become infected or inflamed (often due to plaque buildup and poor oral hygiene), they can bleed easily and even recede or pull away from the tooth roots. In its most advanced stage, periodontal disease can cause tooth loss and bone loss. Studies show that gum disease is also associated with heart attacks, stroke and premature births. Therefore, Dr. Lane offers comprehensive care for your gum disease symptoms, which may include a deep cleaning or more frequent checkups.
Regardless of your stage of life or the severity of your concerns, we are equipped to protect and restore your complete smile health. We will even go above and beyond to help you feel at ease while you are here. From our Netflix TVs, a beverage bar and wireless headphones to warm, scented towels and massaging dental chairs, your comfort is a top priority at Lane Family Dental.
