The Destructive Consequences of Avoiding Treatment

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. Patel and our team at Schaumburg Dental Studio.

Halting the Progression of Gum Disease

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:

Dr. Patel gently removes excess or diseased gum tissue with gentle gingivectomy procedures, leaving fewer places for disease-causing bacteria to hide and a healthier, more balanced smile.

Our talented dental hygienists perform this non-surgical gum disease treatment, removing plaque and tartar deposits from below the gum line for reduced periodontal pocketing and healthier gum attachment levels.

Periodontal Maintenance Is a Must for Preserving Gum Health

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.
