Periodontal Therapy

Professional Gum Care in Kirkland, IL

Periodontal Gum Therapy in Kirkland, IL - White Oak DentalGum health is just as crucial as strong, healthy teeth. If your gums become inflamed or infected, the problems can quickly worsen and lead to gum recession or pulling away from the teeth. This action leads to gingival pockets where infection can flourish. Ultimately, the results include bad breath, systemic infections, and tooth loss.

In fact, data shows that gum disease is the top cause of tooth loss in the United States. Furthermore, gum disease can contribute to or aggravate systemic conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular issues.

The periodontal treatments we provide at White Oak Dental can help prevent or even reverse gum disease. We make sure to keep you comfortable during these gum therapies, and we monitor you to ensure that your gum health is where it should be.

Bleeding, sore, or swollen gums indicate a problem. Keep your regular check-up appointments, and call us at (815) 522-3541 if you notice any symptoms. Remember, you can’t have a healthy mouth without healthy gums.
