Dr. Jig Patel, Dentist in Schaumburg, IL, Warns Against Ignoring Signs of Gum Disease

Research has linked gum disease to be a contributing factor to systemic healthy concerns like heart disease, dementia, and a weakened immune system.

The respected dentists at Schaumburg Dental Studio raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of gum disease in Schaumburg, IL, including swollen, bleeding gums and bad breath. Drs. Jig Patel and Muizz Merchant offer customized gum disease treatment to get patients back to a healthy mouth and a healthy immune system.

Gum disease is a progressive condition that affects the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, including the gums, jawbone and teeth. Nearly half the population is affected in some degree and without timely, effective treatment, patients run the risk of losing their teeth or having the disease spread to other parts of the body. Research has linked gum disease to be a contributing factor to systemic healthy concerns like heart disease, dementia, and a weakened immune system. The condition starts as gingivitis, a treatable stage, but without dental care, gum disease will progress to periodontitis and eventually advanced periodontitis. Common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Constant bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen gums
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Loose teeth

Schaumburg Dental Studio offers a variety of treatments for gum disease, including many traditional, effective solutions. Some of the available treatment at this practice include gingivectomies, scaling and root planing and osseous surgery. These solutions work to remove the infected gum tissue, cleanse the tooth roots and jawbone of bacteria and plaque and establish a healthy environment for the gums to reattach to the teeth.

Once gum disease has been treated, many patients require routine periodontal maintenance. This is a deep cleaning of the teeth and gums to help ensure the disease does not return. Periodontal maintenance is often performed every three months.
