Gum Disease Treatment – Aurora, IL

Using The Latest Techniques & Technology To Tackle Gum Disease

Gum disease is a common oral health problem that impacts one out of two adults in the United States, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gum disease begins with bacterial growth in your mouth, which left unchecked can ultimately lead to tooth loss. We closely monitor all signs and symptoms of gum disease at each of your semi-annual checkups. This way, we can increase the chances of diagnosing and treating it early, before it causes permanent damage to your smile.

Why Choose Grand Dental - Aurora
for Gum Disease Treatment?

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning below the gum line that helps reduce the presence of harmful oral bacteria in your mouth. First, your hygienist will remove all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, as far down as the depth of the pockets of your gums. Then, we will smooth out the roots of your teeth, allowing your gums to healthily reattach. Our goal with this procedure is to reverse the symptoms of gum disease and put your oral health back on the right track. 

Chao Pinhole Technique

Instead of treating your gums for infection with invasive procedures that require scalpels and sutures, the Chao Pinhole Technique utilizes a nonsurgical approach. The same way a needle and thread work to pull pieces of fabric together, your periodontist will use special instruments to gently reposition your gum tissue back over the roots of your teeth to cover the exposed root. This reverses the process of gum recession without the need to go through a drastic recovery.

Soft Tissue Laser

We use soft tissue laser gum therapy to reduce the overall bacterial load in your mouth. This special instrument uses a concentrated beam of light that allows us to accurately and precisely remove oral tissue without the need for sutures. It cauterizes the area on-contact as well, eliminating bleeding and drastically reducing the recovery time and risk of infection.

Laser therapy is also effective at halting the development of cold sores when the treatment is applied at the first signs of development. The laser energy destroys the virus that causes the painful and unsightly outbreaks.
