Every patient at Red Rock Periodontics & Implantology has unique budgetary needs and concerns. This is the reason we offer several types of payment methods when you partner with our office
We take all major credit cards and can process them at the time of your service. Be aware that some credit card companies that give out points may not attribute points to medical-related services. Call your credit card provider to learn about their guidelines.
If you have medical and/or dental insurance, please bring the information with you to each appointment. We can submit to your provider on your behalf to get coverage when applicable. Make sure you have an additional method of payment with you to cover any co-pays at the time of your visit.
Lending companies like CareCredit and Lending Club offer third-party financing options to make it easier for you to pay for your periodontal care and visits over an extended period of time. If you are a candidate for their programs, you can enjoy lower interest rates than you might with a standard credit card.

All parts of your body can become infected, and that includes the soft tissues in your mouth. Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum tissues caused by a build-up of aggressive bacteria.
The bacteria breed in between the teeth and gums, in the periodontal pockets. If left untouched, the bacteria will continue to destroy the surrounding connective tissues and gums, leading to deepening of the pocket.
From that point, bacteria and tartar will build up on the surface of the tooth and its root. Finally, the bacteria will slowly erode the jawbone, leading to eventual tooth loss.
Ironically, many people ignore the most common signs of gum disease, such as:
At Red Rock Periodontics & Implantology in Las Vegas, we focus on the art and science of state-of-the-art periodontics. Periodontist Dr. Curry Leavitt focuses his practice on offering patients periodontal services beyond what a general dentist is able to provide. At our comfortable, high-tech office, you can get everything from periodontal maintenance and gum recession solutions, to dental implants and bone grafting surgery.
Periodontists and general dentists have both gone through foundational dental school training, but only periodontists have advanced training and certifications. This includes an addition three years of schooling after receiving a dental school degree. More expertise means more efficient, effective solutions for you.
