Our experienced dentist, Dr. Edward Kenny, provides non-surgical periodontal treatment. Periodontal treatment is aimed at treating and preventing periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria and may be a result of the buildup of plaque on the teeth and gums. Common symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen, and tender gums that bleed easily. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, receding gums, and bone loss. Our non-surgical periodontal treatments include scaling and root planing, which are deep cleaning methods. We are dedicated to helping your smile heal from periodontal disease. We invite you to contact our dental office in Des Plaines, Illinois to learn more about our non-surgical periodontal treatments. We are committed to improving your oral health!
