Houston Dental Office Provides Deep Cleaning for Gum Disease

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - February 25, 2015) - Dr. Lynette Crouse, a trusted Houston dentist, wants to remind patients about the seriousness and far-reaching effects of periodontal disease.

Dr. Crouse, owner of Precision Dental of Houston, has treated periodontal disease since opening her office more than 10 years ago.

Dr. Crouse said periodontal disease is the number one reason for tooth loss and often has no symptoms. Gum disease has been linked to diabetes and even heart disease. The same bacteria that forms inside the mouth also is the same bacteria that is found to block arteries in the heart.

"Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, so it makes sense," said Dr. Crouse, an affordable dentist who offers comprehensive services at her state-of-the-art facility.

Periodontal disease can be caused by several factors, including hormones and genetics. When the lining of the gum becomes inflamed and separates from the tooth structure, that is the beginning stages of periodontal disease. As time progresses, the separation will become greater, and a pocket will be formed underneath the tooth.

Precision Dental of Houston offers deep cleanings that remove bacteria below the gumline for patients with periodontal disease. The Houston dental office uses a high-powered topical gel to numb the area before the cleaning.

Dr. Crouse said it is very important to receive regular cleanings and checkups at her office while also practicing good oral hygiene at home.

"I think there is not enough knowledge and discussion about periodontal disease, and with a culture that consumes a lot of processed foods, it is important to explain the damaging effects of not regularly brushing and flossing," Dr. Crouse said.

Precise Dental of Houston focuses on modern technology and continuing education to provide comprehensive care to every patient. The comfortable office includes a digital X-ray machine, which emits low levels of radiation; intra-oral cameras; state-of-the-art cavity-prevention treatment; and laser teeth-whitening treatments.

Dr. Crouse is a general dentist who provides services in restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, periodontal surgery and oral surgery. The Houston dental practice offers crowns, bridges, dentures, implant restoration, implants supported dentures, root canals, teeth whitening at the dentist, veneers, fillings, gum treatment, oral cancer treatment, breath treatment and dental bonding.

Dr. Crouse is a Houston native who graduated with honors from the high school Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart. She attended Houston Baptist University, where she double majored in biology and chemistry. In 1999, Dr. Crouse received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas. She was later accepted into the university's graduate practice residency program and received training in oral medicine and sedation dentistry.

Dr. Crouse began her career as an associate dentist at a cosmetic dental practice. She opened Precise Dental of Houston in 2004. Dr. Crouse has received training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and is a certified provider of Invisalign. Over the years, patients looking for Invisalign in Houston have received quality and dependable services from Dr. Crouse and her staff.
