Professional Dental Hygiene

Schaumburg, IL Dentist

Everyone over the age of three should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year. Our gentle hygienists will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. The hygienists are highly specialized in detecting, deterring, and treating gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we’re here to help you.

If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you alter or change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves:

  • Scaling to remove tartar from below the gum line
  • Root planing to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque builds up
  • Arestin antibiotic treatment to kill bacterial infection
