Periodontics in Bloomingdale
Specialized Tooth & Gum Care to Prevent Disease
Periodontics is a subset of dentistry that focuses on the structures that
support your teeth, including your gums and jaw bones. Common periodontal
problems include gum disease and gingivitis—which can lead to periodontitis.
Smokers and people with diabetes are uniquely vulnerable to periodontal
problems. At MyDentist, our Bloomingdale dentist can provide the dental
care that you need.
Our periodontic treatments include:
Uneven or excessive gums is a genetic trait that many people would rather
not have. Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic procedures that
can be used to minimize or eliminate the condition altogether.
Whenever possible, we treat periodontal gum and bone conditions without
surgery. There are a variety of noninvasive treatments available including
scaling and root planing—a process by which the surface of the tooth
and root is thoroughly cleaned to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria.
We can also treat periodontal conditions through fluoride tray treatments.
When a lesion cannot be sufficiently diagnosed through patient history
and clinical findings, an oral tissue sample will be taken for examination.
Our on-site dental lab allows biopsies to be completed quickly and efficiently.
Today's tooth extractions bear little similarity to their more painful
predecessors. Before a tooth is removed, the surrounding area is numbed
to help eliminate any discomfort. Following the extraction, pain medication
is available for any pain that results.
