Our Available Dental Solutions for Treating Gum Disease and Its Effects
Scaling and Root Planing
The early stages of gum disease can be treated with scaling and root planing. This deep cleaning procedure treats deep periodontal pockets by removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline and smoothing the tooth roots to encourage the gums to reattach to the teeth.
Exposed tooth roots can cause sensitivity and pain, but there are ways to treat this gum recession. Our periodontist can perform a connective tissue graft or free gingival graft that removes tissue from the roof of the mouth and places it over the exposed tooth roots.
Dental Implant Placement
If your gum disease has progressed to the point where you have lost teeth, Drs. Samer Shaltoni and Yamen Akhras can place dental implants. These implants can support crowns, bridges, and dentures to restore any degree of tooth loss.
With tooth loss comes jawbone atrophy, which will affect your candidacy for dental implants. Bone grafting can restore your candidacy by placing grafting material at the site of the jawbone recession, eventually restoring a suitable base for implants.
If you've lost bone in your upper jaw and want to restore your candidacy for dental implants, our periodontist can raise your sinus floor and place grafting material.
Guided Bone Regeneration
Guided bone regeneration uses barrier membranes to direct the growth of new bone in areas where there is insufficient tissue. This tissue regeneration can allow for the stable placement of dental implants.
Why Receive Care From a Periodontist?
While a general dentist is well-equipped to help maintain your oral health and treat problems that affect the teeth, gums, and other areas of the mouth, a periodontist has undergone special training to maintain the gums and bones that support the teeth. Dentists may refer their patients to a periodontist when they need advanced care.
At Premier Dental & Implant Center, we have a general dentist, an implant dentist, and a periodontist, so you have access to everything you may need under one roof. Drs. Kaitlyn Lagesse, Yamen Akhras, and Samer Shaltoni can develop a plan that treats your gum disease, alleviates your uncomfortable symptoms, and restores the structural integrity of your mouth. You won't have to seek treatment anywhere else.
We Make Treatment Affordable
Our Orland Park, IL, office accepts most insurances, which makes treating the symptoms of gum disease affordable. However, dental implants aren't covered by insurance. If you're receiving implants or have other out-of-pocket expenses, you can pay in affordable monthly installments through CareCredit®.
When left untreated, gum disease can cause extensive damage that can be costly to fix. The sooner you seek treatment, the less it will cost.
Our dentists provide a variety of dental procedures catered to the diverse health needs of families. By providing a full scope of dental care for all ages, we hope to build lifelong relationships with our patients and help individuals regain and maintain their dental health for a lifetime.
