Restore Your Smile's Health: Periodontal Treatment Options at Dental Smiles of Joliet

At Dental Smiles of Joliet, we understand the importance of healthy gums for a beautiful smile and overall well-being. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common infection affecting the tissues supporting your teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other health problems.

We offer a comprehensive range of periodontal treatments to address your specific needs and help you achieve optimal oral health:

  1. Diagnosis and Early Intervention:
    • Comprehensive examination: We thoroughly assess your gums and teeth to identify the stage of gum disease and any underlying factors.
    • Early intervention: We prioritize early detection and treatment of gingivitis, the initial stage of gum disease, to prevent progression and potential tooth loss.
  2. Non-Surgical Treatments:
    • Scaling and root planing: This deep cleaning removes plaque and tartar buildup above and below the gum line, promoting healing and halting disease progression.
    • Antimicrobial therapy: Oral or topical antibiotics may be used to combat infection and reduce harmful bacteria.
    • Improved oral hygiene: We provide personalized guidance and support to help you establish and maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home.
  3. Surgical Treatments (if needed):
    • Pocket reduction surgery: When gum pockets become deep and cleaning becomes difficult, surgery may be necessary to remove bacteria, reduce pocket depth, and promote healthy tissue reattachment to the teeth.
    • Bone grafting: In severe cases, bone grafts may be used to regenerate lost bone tissue and improve tooth support.
    • Gum grafting: This procedure helps restore gum tissue lost due to disease, improving aesthetics and protecting the underlying bone.
  4. Laser Dentistry:
    • LANAP® laser treatment: This advanced laser technology offers a minimally invasive option for treating gum disease, promoting faster healing and reduced discomfort compared to traditional surgery.
