If I have periodontal disease, will I lose my teeth?

Periodontal disease is a serious infection of the periodontal ligaments and tissues that support your teeth. Without treatment, periodontal disease typically leads to tooth loss and, in some cases, systemic health issues.

Gum Disease Treatment

Fortunately, periodontal treatment is designed to treat and improve periodontal disease and save your smile. With comprehensive periodontal treatment in Aurora, IL, our patients with gum disease have enjoyed improved oral health. Tooth loss is far less likely with treatment and compliance.

Compliance means you follow guidelines put forward by your dentist to treat your condition. This may include specialized teeth cleanings and gum treatments in conjunction with an optimal oral health routine at home.

If you have early periodontal disease—gingivitis—this is often reversible as opposed to only treatable.

To lower your risks for periodontal disease, we recommend visiting your dentist twice yearly for exams and teeth cleanings. You should also brush and floss your teeth at least two times each day.

If you have periodontal disease, you are not alone. Our team will rally to help improve your oral health and your peace of mind.
