For patients suffering from sore and painful gum conditions, Dr. Couret provides expert gum disease treatment near Wicker Park, IL. He knows that the health of your gums and soft tissues is just as important as the health of your teeth, yet sometimes these crucial parts of oral health are overlooked.
According to Dr. Couret, this oversight can lead to some serious repercussions including gingivitis (the initial stage of gum disease usually caused by plaque) and periodontitis (inflammation of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth.) He estimates that perhaps up to 80% of American adults suffer from periodontal disease, while research studies have shown a link between gum disease and high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, and even complications during pregnancy.
If you need gum disease treatment, we are committed to the health of your entire mouth. Dr. Couret is meticulous about checking for any signs of gum disease and oral cancer. Our patients benefit from the latest in advanced technology, such as our state-of-the-art, high definition intraoral cameras, and the VELscope oral cancer screening device to visualize tissue abnormalities.
