Gum Disease Treatment in
Waukegan

Periodontal (gum) disease is insidious. It is an infection of the gums that starts as plaque, an opaque film on the teeth that hardens to form tartar.

Gum Disease Treatment in Waukegan

As tartar accumulates, it harbors bacteria that attack the soft tissue around the gums. This is the early stage of gum disease known as Gingivitis. Left untreated, Gingivitis becomes Periodontitis which ultimately destroys the tissue surrounding your teeth AND the bone that holds your teeth in place. Except for bad breath and gums that bleed, there are very few early warning signals. The disease advances silently, often without pain, and before you know it, you are losing your teeth and you don't know why.

Tooth loss is only the most obvious indicator of gum disease. Scientific research has discovered a link between gum disease and stroke, heart disease, diabetes. Pregnant women face an even higher risk of gum disease, which may lead to increased risk of premature or preterm delivery. When your gums become diseased, your entire immune system is weakened.

In the past, fear of painful dental surgery has kept people with gum disease from seeking the care they needed. Well, those days are gone forever.

An incredible staff and dentist! My procedure was painless and it was so nice to have a doctor who is willing to not only explain what he is doing but also LISTEN to his patient! I will continue coming back to Dr. Saad and to his wonderful staff!

Dr. Saad is great at what he does! I had all four wisdom teeth extracted and he's very gentle and really cares about your pain. The receptionist is very friendly. I recommend this office BIG time.
