Hygiene Appointments

Did you know that periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is the primary reason for adult tooth loss in the United States? The stealthy condition often causes mild symptoms, like painless bleeding of the gums, as well as swelling, redness, or tenderness. Dr. Conn’s hygienist Kay will assess your mouth for gum disease when you come in for a checkup. With a gentle Florida probe we can find out if your sensitive soft tissues are affected by gingivitis, and then we can offer first-stage periodontal therapy.

Kay our hygienist will rid your gums of periodontal disease, and then we can work to repair damaged tissues. Other therapies we offer include Arestin antibiotics and periodontal chips that are new methods to help fight gum disease.  Advanced cases of periodontitis may be referred to a periodontist for optimal results.

To schedule your checkup or periodontal evaluation, call our Danville dentist office today. Patients in the Danville, Champaign-Urbana, and Covington area will find our location convenient, too.
