Our Philosophy of Care

At Millennium Periodontics, we always strive to understand every patient’s unique dental needs and personal situation. Our concern for patient comfort is about more than oral health. We’re dedicated to identifying and treating the root cause of your gum disease, not just treating its symptoms. We focus on the actual cause of chronic and abnormal inflammation – in most individuals with periodontal disease, this is about more than tartar and plaque. Dr. Christine Gadia is one of a select group of periodontists that believes in natural healing protocols to improve outcomes and recovery, including leveraging specific vitamins and nutrients to help patients maintain better health. If you’re seeking a periodontist in Chicago, IL that cares about you and your overall wellness, we look forward to helping you restore health and happiness to your gums and whole body!

Our concern for patient comfort is about more than oral health.

Integrative Periodontics for Better Oral and Overall Health

Numerous studies have shown that oral health is connected to your overall health. The soft tissue of your gums is the gateway to the rest of your body. Nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and water pass quickly and easily into the bloodstream through your gums. Inflammation caused by periodontal disease is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, dementia, specific types of male cancers, and pregnancy complications. Our practice blends preventative and integrative care, while considering the evidence-based oral health and whole body connection. In addition to examining and treating your gums, we discuss diet and lifestyle choices and explain how these factors can impact your oral and systemic health.

Dedicated to Exceptional Experiences

Excellence in treatment and concern for the well-being of our patients is the cornerstone of our practice. We’re dedicated to delivering exceptional experiences and building lifelong relationships with our patients. We understand you may feel uneasy about receiving periodontal care, especially if you have advanced-stage gum disease and failing teeth. We pride ourselves on making your dental and periodontal experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible through open communication. We thoroughly explain all aspects of your treatment so you know what to expect from start to finish. If you still have any questions before or during the procedure, we’ll discuss this further until you feel completely confident. Rest assured, our entire team is dedicated to providing a great experience every time you visit us.

Committed to Your Safety

Infection control has always been a top priority at our practice and if you’re already a patient, you’ve likely seen this during visits to our office. Our office follows infection control recommendations by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We stay apprised on new rulings or guidance issued by these agencies to ensure your utmost safety.

Advanced Training and Expertise

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be struggling to bite and chew or feel embarrassed to talk, laugh, and socialize. Missing most or all your teeth can result in changes in your facial appearance, a decline in your health, and increased discomfort or self-consciousness. No matter how many teeth you are missing, dental implants are the “gold standard” solution. These permanent tooth replacements restore your oral health, smile aesthetics, and dental function and do so for decades! Our team at Millennium Periodontics is experienced in providing dental implants in Chicago, IL and can help you achieve a new smile and quality of life with this permanent solution.

Periodontal Wellness is Our Priority

As a practice, we believe that preventive care and natural solutions are integral to optimal gum health. Treating gum disease symptoms earlier when they’re easier to reverse or stop is about more than saving your smile, it can be lifesaving! Eliminating gum disease helps boost immunity and reduce the stress bacteria impart on your body. Scientific studies show that elimination of dental plaque has a positive correlation with being able to treat other medical problems more effectively and with greater success. In keeping with our focus on health and wellness, we discuss the use of therapeutic products you can use at home to boost your gum and overall health.

The way we practice every day shows how much we care.
