If inflammation of the gums have caused your gums to recede from your teeth and this infection is causing the bone material which supports your teeth to break down, we can help. Our skilled periodontists, Dr. Peter Domagala and Dr. Jennifer Shango offer gum treatments at Institute of Dental Implants and Periodontics, for our patients with periodontal disease. Let’s take a look at the various options you have in Gurnee, Illinois, to fight back gum disease.

— To stop the progression of gum recession and bone loss, we offer gum graft surgery.

— We offer a treatment called scaling and root planing, which is a process where our periodontist deeply cleans the root surfaces which can also be followed up with antibiotics.

— After removing bacterial decay from a gum pocket, we can replace the tissue to fit the tooth properly again. The procedure is known as a pocket reduction.

— We can adjust the bone levels and the gums to provide more exposure of a natural tooth with the help of dental crown lengthening.

— With the help of dental implants, we can place an artificial tooth root into the jaw structure. This is typically done by implanting a tooth or bridge into your smile.

— Using a bone graft, we can actually turn around the damage sustained from bone loss and tissue.
