Did you know that undiagnosed/untreated gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults? True story! Don’t worry, we can help you detect and remedy this dangerous condition at our office. The standard treatment for gum disease, one that most of our patients can benefit from, is a “deep cleaning” procedure that involves scaling and root planing. You can bet that once we determine that your gums are under attack, we’ll get right to work on restoring them back to health. The scaling and root planing process is explained in greater detail in the ADA video clip below. If you still have any questions about gum disease treatment or any other dental health solutions, call Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at 847-652-9147 to request a visit to our dentist’s office in Mundelein, IL.
