Scaling and Root Planing in Richton Park, IL
Dentist Near Me
Gum disease is a widespread health issue in the United States. Millions of Americans are afflicted with some form of gum disease, but the early stages may not produce any apparent symptoms. Still, these infections can negatively affect your gums, teeth, and even your overall health. Periodontal disease is a leading cause of tooth loss, and researchers have linked gum disease to systemic issues like heart and blood vessel problems and diabetes complications.
We provide deep cleanings at Sauk Trail Dental Care to help fight gum disease. Dr. G will let you know if you need these treatments. Our deep cleanings are comfortable and involve removing materials deep in your gums and the roots of your teeth. This treatment, called scaling and root planing, can do much to prevent the worsening of gum disease and can even help reverse gum infections.
Some of the symptoms of gum diseases include bleeding gums (especially while brushing), swollen gums, loose teeth, and shifting teeth. If you notice these signs or other oral health issues, don’t delay. Call our dental office in Richton Park right away at (708) 608-3368.
