Gum disease is a progressive oral condition affecting the smiles of millions of Americans. Left untreated, it has the potential to cause bone and tooth loss, and has been linked to a number of serious systemic conditions. You can, however, protect your oral and overall health with effective options for expert periodontal care from Dr. Jignesh Patel and our team at Schaumburg Dental Studio.
Gum disease will not resolve on its own, and will only worsen without proper care. To arrest the disease process and minimize further damage to your gums, teeth and bone, Dr. Patel provides several gum disease treatments:
While gum disease cannot be cured, it can be treated and then prevented from advancing through meticulous homecare and periodic periodontal maintenance cleanings. Periodontal maintenance cleanings are scheduled every three to four months, allowing for thorough care of areas above and below the gums and close monitoring of gum and bone health. It is important to understand that these cleanings are different than bi-annual prophylactic cleanings. In fact, when you have gum disease, periodontal maintenance visits take the place of regular six-month cleanings, as a general prophy does not address the areas affected by gum disease.
Dr. Patel has been serving the oral health and smile needs of patients for the past 19 years, and remains committed to providing excellent, effective dental services to you and your loved ones. When periodontal disease threatens your smile and oral health, get the expert care you need right from the general dentist you trust.
