Gum disease can be painful. It can also lead to a series of other serious oral health issues, like deep infections and even tooth loss.
Gum disease treatment at Premier Dental & Implant Center can ease bleeding, swelling, and more to preserve your oral health and function.
Our skilled dental team in Orland Park, IL, provides effective treatment to resolve and prevent gum disease for healthier, happier smiles.
What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease occurs when plaque and tartar build up on the teeth. When not properly removed, this plaque and tartar can irritate the gums. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. If left untreated, it can lead to periodontitis.
However, early detection and treatment can address the cause, alleviate symptoms, and preserve the health of your teeth, gums, jawbone, and more. This can help prevent the need for more extensive restorative dental work down the line, such as bone grafting, dental implants, and tooth restorations.

Honestly best dentist I’ve ever been to hands down! I have had fillings, root canals, and crowns and I’m lucky I came to this establishment. Dr. Lagesse is everything you look for in a dentist, friendly, always smiling and outgoing, makes sure your comfortable, taking some extra time to make sure it’s just right, I love how she doesn’t rush it at all, not to mention, the procedures are soo smooth, and she’s good at numbing the perfect spots, she really knows what she’s doing! The staff are amazing! Soo comforting, very friendly, outgoing, and makes for a looked forward to visit! Thank you Premier Dental and Implant Center! The only regret I have is I didn’t find you all sooner! TRY THIS PLACE OUT, YOU WONT REGRET IT!View on Google
My 19 year old daughter is a very anxious dental patient. From the moment we came for the consult through the procedure and follow up, she was comfortable and we felt well taken care of. The entire staff goes above and beyond to help you feel comfortable and genuinely cared for! They explain everything that needs to be done instead of surprising you later with regards to time to complete, cost, etc. She needed 3 root canals under anesthesia. The entire dental team rocked!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! The office is very modern, clean and beautiful too! It is quite apparent this staff cares about each aspect of the practice!View on Google
