Dentist in Chicago
If you are having problems with your gums, you will want to come to see our periodontist, Dr. Nares, at Advanced Dental Care. Our top-notch dentist in Chicago
will be able to provide you with gum treatment so that your gums will become healthy again.
The primary reason that a patient has problems with gum disease is because they have poor dental hygiene. In order to make sure that your gums remain healthy, it is important that you follow a great at-home dental cleaning regimen of daily brushing and flossing, and that you come in to see our dentist in Chicago for a checkup and dental cleaning every six months. Of course, even with the very best efforts for keeping your teeth clean, gum disease can still develop. Sometimes you may have a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, which will make you more prone to developing gum disease. Gum disease can also be affected by taking certain medications. If you have gums that bleed easily when they are brushed or flossed, you may be developing gum problems. Other signs of gum disease can include gums that are red, gums that are receding, or even teeth that are loose. The type of treatment that you will need will depend on the gum problem that you have. When a patient’s gums are red and inflamed, they have gingivitis - a common precursor to gum disease. In this case, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, and you have mild-to-moderate gum disease, you may need to have a scaling and root planing treatment. This periodontal treatment is like a deep cleaning for your gums. If this treatment is performed once or twice and your gums do not improve, you may need to have gum surgery to reduce the pocket depths.
