Gum disease affects one out of two adults in the United States alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It begins with oral bacterial growth and then quickly leads to tooth loss when left untreated. We’ll closely monitor any and all signs and symptoms of gum disease, ensuring that any issues are caught and diagnosed sooner, not later. We also offer effective gum disease treatment for Sycamore, IL dental patients who need to renew their oral health.
To reduce the presence of harmful oral bacteria and plaque, we perform deep cleaning, a procedure that consists of scaling and root planing. To reverse the symptoms of gum disease, our hygienist first removes plaque and tartar as deep as the gum pockets, then smooths out the tooth roots so the gums can reattach.
Rather than treating your gums with invasive procedures, we skip the scalpels and sutures to perform the Chao Pinhole Technique. This non-surgical approach involves the use of special instruments to gently reposition your gum tissue over the roots of your teeth. Once completed, the reversal process of your gum recession can begin.
Our dental office makes use of soft tissue laser gum therapy for a few reasons. With this concentrated dental light beam, we can remove oral tissue with better precision, remove the need for sutures, cauterize the area on-contact, eliminate bleeding, and reduce recovery times.
With laser therapy, we can even stop cold sores during their early stages and destroy the virus that causes these painful outbreaks.
Complex dental care sometimes becomes necessary to protect the health of your gum tissue. Thankfully, our team has the skills to get it done. Our in-house periodontists are trained to perform services like gum grafting, surgical dental implant placement, and cosmetic surgery, all in the same dental office you already know.
