Our talented dentists offer various periodontics treatments and services, including:
One of our team’s main focuses in periodontics is preventing periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. The bacteria in the plaque causes gums to become sensitive, irritated, red and swollen. The earliest stages of this disease are called gingivitis. If gingivitis is not treated promptly, it may develop into the later stages of gum disease called periodontitis. Periodontitis may cause severe recession of gums and bone loss, so it is essential you visit Northwestern Dental Group at the first sign of gum disease.
Periodontics treatments have many benefits including increased overall oral health and a decreased chance of gum disease. To learn more about periodontics, and to make an appointment with one of our excellent dentists, call our office at 847-505-0775 today!
