Periodontal Treatment Schaumburg, IL
Studies suggest that a sizable majority of the U.S. population has periodontal disease (PD), which has is not only destructive to teeth and supporting bone, it has also been linked with serious, even life-threatening systemic illnesses such as diabetes, coronary vascular disease, surgical and pregnancy complications, and more.
Bacterial infiltration and inflammation where the teeth erupt through the gums is the site of most PD. Consequences of untreated PD include an embarrassing appearance, bleeding gums, loss of function of the teeth, and the above mentioned systemic illnesses.

The good news is that, when diagnosed and treated early, most of these consequences can be avoided. Various treatments and therapies are offered. These depend on the patient and stage of the condition and include: surgery, antibiotic therapy, probiotic therapy, scaling to remove calculus and plaque, root planing, ultrasound, and enhanced home care.
In general, the earlier the condition is diagnosed and treated, the less involved is the therapy. Our objective with periodontal therapy is to remove bacteria and other toxins, leaving a smooth, non-plaque retentive root surface. There is even evidence to suggest that soft tissue laser treatment may actually encourage some regeneration of periodontal tissues.
