Their practice, Dental Care of Oak Park, utilizes advanced laser gum surgery for a minimally invasive approach to treating gum disease in Oak Park, IL. Gum disease is a serious condition that affects over half of all Americans and can have devastating effects on someone’s oral and systemic health if not treated by a professional.

The doctors at Dental Care of Oak Park offer patients minimally invasive treatment using state-of-the-art LANAP® laser therapy. This FDA-cleared dental laser is able to treat symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums or halitosis, in a gentle manner without the need of scalpels or sutures. Many patients do not require any sedation when undergoing the procedure and see nearly instant results. Gum disease in Oak Park, IL, goes undiagnosed for many patients while in the first stage of gingivitis before it progresses to the incurable periodontitis stage. Patient should be aware of common symptoms of gum disease, which include:

  •     Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  •     Constant halitosis (bad breath)
  •     Red, swollen, and tender gums
  •     Receding gums
  •     Loose or shifting teeth

If gum disease progresses past the gingivitis stage, it may become incurable and only manageable with frequent periodontal maintenance visits to the dentist. During the stages of minimal to advanced periodontitis, these symptoms worsen and can ultimately lead to tooth loss. Research has also shown gum disease to be linked to systemic health concerns such as heart disease and diabetes. Drs. Perna and Agrawal want to inform the public of this progressive disease and encourage them to be checked for gum disease in Oak Park, IL.
