Your Trusted Periodontist in Carol Stream & Elgin, IL
Periodontics is an area of dentistry focused on the health of your gums and the prevention of gum disease (periodontal disease). At Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy gums when it comes to protecting your overall oral health and wellbeing. That’s why we are proud to offer periodontic services at our two dental practices in Illinois, as we want to make high-quality dental care easier to access for you and your family.
The Importance of Periodontics
Poor oral hygiene can cause a number of dental problems, including decay or plaque buildup along your gums. If not treated promptly and properly, this can lead to serious issues like bleeding gums, pain when chewing, and even tooth loss. Fortunately, you can receive gentle, compassionate periodontic care by turning to Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates.
Gum disease is common, as it affects over 45% of Americans. If your case is mild, our hygienists can prevent it from spreading with a professional cleaning. If the disease is more severe, a deep cleaning may be recommended.
Our board-certified periodontist, Dr. Michael Slavin, works alongside our dental hygienists to evaluate the health of your gums and remove any early signs of plaque buildup and gum disease. If a deep cleaning is required, our team will utilize an ultrasonic scaling device to carefully clean your teeth. We use numbing gels and local anesthetics, meaning you won’t feel any discomfort or pain during the course of your periodontic treatment. Most patients see improvements through a series of professional cleanings and at-home maintenance.
