Why Receive Care From a Periodontist?

Periodontist appointment

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.

How Periodontal Treatment Works At Our Orland Park, IL Practice

When you visit Premier Dental & Implant Center, you have a team of dentists and specialists at your service.
When you visit Premier Dental & Implant Center, you have a team of dentists and specialists at your service.

​Periodontics Consultation

To begin, you'll visit our high-tech dentistry practice for a periodontics consultation. We will assess your smile to see if you have periodontal disease, how much it has progressed, and what your treatment options are.


We keep patients at ease with our compassionate demeanors and transparent treatment plan explanations. If you're worried about discomfort, we offer IV sedation and oral conscious sedation. Once it's administered, we can begin the next stage of treatment.

Periodontal Care

We provide custom care to all of our periodontics patients, because each case is different. Treatments can include gum grafting, as well as deep cleanings using scaling and root planing.

Supplementary Treatment

If your periodontal disease has advanced, you may need supplementary dentistry treatments like tooth extraction, dental implants, or dental crowns. Unlike some other Orland Park dentists, we handle all these options in-house.

Follow-Up Appointment

To be as thorough as possible, we will meet with you two weeks after your visit for a follow-up appointment. This allows us to check on your healing, answer any questions, and make sure that your treatment is working well.

Routine Check-Ups

After your periodontal care and supplementary treatments like implant placement are complete, you visit our trusted team twice a year for your routine treatments, like cleanings.

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.
