Integrative Gum Disease Treatments in the Chicago Loop
A holistic approach emphasizing smart CHOICES
Is gum disease the symptom or the disease itself?
Fundamentally, gum disease treatments should be about restoring health to your entire body, not just your gums. Time and again, scientific research has shown the link between periodontal disease and increased risk of:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Heart attack and stroke
- Diabetes and diabetic complications
By taking a proactive approach to both preventing and treating gum disease, we can help you live a long and healthy life. Our modern gum disease treatments are flexible and customized to meet your needs.
We talk about options — it’s all about finding a path that’s right for you.
What is gum disease?
At Choices in Dentistry, our approach to gum disease treatments emphasize education, not lecturing. We’ll help you develop an understanding of your health and the steps you can take to optimize it.
Come see us if you’re interested in whole-body health and wellness and want to see how gum health fits into the equation. In addition, be on the lookout for these signs which may indicate the presence of gum disease:
- Red or swollen gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Chronic bad breath
- History of cavities
- Autoimmune diseases
Have you heard about ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy is our proven CHOICE to protect your immune system. Our dentists use ozone as part of both treating periodontal disease as well as for anyone who wants an added immune boost to their next cleaning appointment.
Ozone therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process and is a natural anti-bacterial agent. There are virtually no side effects, especially when compared to antibiotics.
We know our approach to integrative gum disease treatments is right for you! Meet with a gum disease dentist and talk about your health. We’ll even do a free microscopic analysis of your mouth while you’re here.

Holistic approach to scaling and root planing
Have you been told you need a ‘deep cleaning’? We’ll help you understand other options like initial debridement, allowing time for your immune system to respond, and following up with a “fine scale.” This approach might save you hundreds of dollars and avoid a deep cleaning.
Learn both your genetic predisposition and get a quantitative analysis of your bacterial profile. We’ll provide you with recommendations specific to what we learned.
