Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It occurs when certain types of bacteria produce toxins that cause the body to destroy gum tissue, bone, and structures that support the teeth. In many cases, the symptoms of gum disease can be hard to notice or not present at all, and pain is usually not a symptom. Dr. Borello can help you fight the infection and prevent further damage from occurring. Once the treatment has begun, a noticeable improvement will occur if you follow your home care regimen.
As a leading periodontist in Glen Ellyn, IL, Dr. Borello has the expertise to effectively treat gum disease and educate patients on how to best maintain healthy gum tissues. He has accumulated many notable achievements, including earning his M.S degree from Loyola Dental School in 1976, followed by his D.D.S in 1980, and his Dental Certificate with a specialty in periodontics in 1982. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Periodontics, Chicago Dental Society, and many more.
