Understanding Gum Disease

Posted on October 13th, 2011 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Gum disease is a serious problem that requires treatment from a dentist. This condition can lead to even more problems, including tooth loss. Watch this video to learn about this problem and how to prevent it.
As this video explains, gum disease is caused by plaque buildup and bacteria in the mouth. Gingivitis is the first phase of gum disease, and it can progress to gum loss and tooth loss. A visit to your dentist twice a year and regular brushing and flossing at home can help prevent gum disease.
For a qualified dentist to help you prevent gum disease, visit Art of Modern Dentistry. In addition to general care, our cosmetic dentists offer Invisalign orthodontic treatments and more. Call us at (312) 361-0683 to schedule an appointment.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
