Getting older doesn’t have to automatically involve losing your teeth. In fact, good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings done at our Darien IL & Bloomingdale IL dental Office can go a long way in helping you maintain a full, healthy smile for life. The process of caring for oral health isn’t limited to the teeth themselves. Our Darien IL & Bloomingdale IL dentist arehighly skilled and qualified in periodontal therapy, which focuses on treating and caring for the gums and bone supporting the teeth.
Patients who have gum disease are at risk of damage to these tissues, which is why visiting our Darien IL & Bloomingdale IL dentist for periodontal therapy is so important. The dentist at our Office will be able to diagnose gum disease by paying attention to signs that you may not be able to recognize and link to gum disease. Periodontal therapy is the suggested means of dealing with gum disease and other complications that affect gum tissue and bone.
There are various forms of periodontal therapy, but the main goal doesn’t change. Our Darien IL & Bloomingdale IL dentist uses periodontal therapy to restore health to diseased tissues. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can even spread from infected gums to tooth-supporting bone, resulting in tooth loss. Our Darien IL & Bloomingdale IL dentist can take steps involving periodontal therapy, such scalings (deep cleanings) that remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from beneath the gum line, and surgical repair of lost gum and bone tissue, with the goal of preventing tooth loss, pain and discomfort.
