Periodontal Diseases Treatment in Lombard, IL.

Periodontal disease is diagnosed by our dentist or hygienist through a series of tests. First, we will check the depth of the gum pockets between your teeth and gums. Next, we will check for inflammation, bleeding, loose teeth, and bone loss. Based on our findings, we will determine the stage of your periodontal disease and recommend your treatment.

Stages of Periodontal Disease

Gingivitis: the first stage of periodontal disease, characterized by inflamed, tender, bleeding gums, and plaque build-up.

Periodontitis: the second stage of periodontal disease, characterized by plaque hardening into calculus (tartar), gum recession, deepening gum pockets, and early stages of bone loss.

Advanced Periodontitis: the final stage of periodontal disease, characterized by destruction of gums, bone, and ligament tissues, loosening and loss of teeth, and more severe bone loss.

ARESTIN®

ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills bacteria from infections. It is typically used as part of a periodontal maintenance plan to support optimal oral hygiene. ARESTIN® is placed directly in the infected areas or pockets in your gums right after scaling and root planing treatment.

It works quickly to get rid of the infection at the source and continues fighting the infection 30 days after you leave the office. ARESTIN®, along with scaling and root planing, provides significantly better results than using one treatment alone, for a long-lasting healthy smile.

Contact Sanders Family Dental today to learn more about ARESTIN® treatment and to see if it’s right for you.

I have been coming to Sanders Family Dental for over 12 years. I have always been fearful of the dentist since I was a child and I have had a wonderful experience here with Dr. Leslie! I started out with her father, Dr.Martin. My experience has been very comfortable for they offer sedation and Nitrous Oxide to help me feel at ease. I have had extractions, root canals, fillings and I am very pleased with Dr Leslie and her work. If you are fearful, the entire team helps put me at ease and feel relaxed. Definitely a great place to be for any dental procedures! The office is always clean, neat and up to date with all of the latest equipment.

I had a wonderful experience at Sanders Family Dental. To start I would say they are very professional and patient. So I hadn’t been to the dentist in about 15 yrs, and they made me feel so good and comfortable when coming in. The treatment was flawless to me because there weren’t any problems or issues before or after treatment and they follow up well. Just to say I will be recommending them to friends and family and of course I’m making them my personal dentist office. 👍🏾
