Achieving and maintaining good oral health goes beyond treatment for your teeth. Taking steps towards periodontal care is very important, especially if you are prone to gingivitis or periodontal disease. Many people make the mistake of believing that visiting the dentist infrequently and brushing your teeth is enough. This is not the case, as plaque and tartar can build up quickly and without you realizing they have become a problem. You may not even be aware that you have developed periodontal disease or gingivitis until they are in a serious stage.

Whether you have already received treatment and are looking to ensure it does not develop again or you want to take preventative measures, we are here to help. Our Glen Carbon dentists can provide you with quality periodontics care in our comfortable office. One way to keep gum disease from developing is to visit the dentist at least twice a year.

Quality Treatment for Your Gums
If you are not certain whether your gums are in good condition, we can perform a thorough examination. There are other steps we can take to determine whether you have gum disease, such as a biopsy, which involves removing tissue for testing. The main goal of our Glen Carbon dentists is to provide you with all of your dental needs in one place, including reliable periodontal care. If you cannot afford dental insurance or do not have any, we have a discount plan available.
