Welcome to our practice website! Congratulations on taking the first step toward better health. At Northwest Periodontics & Implants, your periodontal health is our first priority. Please utilize our website as a resource. It will help you better understand your course of treatment and answer any questions related to periodontal therapy.

Dr. Hyde, Dr. Greising and Dr. Tzanos are all periodontists who are specialists in the field of periodontics and implantology. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease including gingivitis, periodontitis, gingival recession and peri-implantitis. The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. All of our doctors have received extensive training including 2-3 years of additional education beyond dental school and carry a separate state license to practice periodontics in the state of Illinois.

By choosing a specialist, you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants all tailored to your specific needs. The doctors can also perform cosmetic periodontal procedures that can enhance and achieve the smile you desire.

Northwest Periodontics & Implants has been serving the periodontal needs of our community for over 40 years at our locations in Palatine and Crystal Lake. We are exceedingly proud of our staff which is comprised of caring and dedicated professionals.
