Periodontal Care

Our dentists and team recognize the critical importance of periodontal care in maintaining not just oral health, but overall well-being. Our comprehensive periodontal services are designed to prevent, diagnose and treat gum disease, helping you preserve the foundation of your smile — your gums.

Understanding Periodontal Care

Periodontal care focuses on the health of the gums and the bone surrounding your teeth. This aspect of dental health is crucial because issues like gingivitis and periodontitis (gum disease) can lead to serious dental problems, including tooth loss. Our goal is to prevent these conditions or catch them early when they are most treatable, and to provide effective interventions for existing periodontal diseases.

Our Approach to Periodontal Health

When you visit Lexington Heights Dental, you can expect a thorough examination as part of your periodontal care. Our skilled dentists and dental team will assess the health of your gums, check for any signs of gum disease and recommend the best course of action tailored to your needs. Treatments can range from deep cleanings (scaling and root planing) to more advanced procedures, depending on the severity of the condition.

Benefits of Regular Periodontal Care

  • Prevention of Gum Disease: Early detection and intervention can prevent gum disease.
  • Reduced Risk of Tooth Loss: Healthy gums are essential for supporting your teeth.
  • Improved Overall Health: Treating gum disease can benefit your overall health, as periodontal issues have been linked to other health conditions.
  • Fresher Breath: Addressing periodontal problems can eliminate halitosis (bad breath) caused by gum disease.
  • Aesthetic Improvements: Healthy gums contribute to a more attractive smile.
