Los Angeles Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Los Angeles - Girl It may surprise you to find out that many Americans have gum disease–up to 8 out of 10 people have some symptoms of gum disease! Gum disease in its earliest stages is often overlooked or not even recognized by you. Once the gum disease has progressed, it can cause many problems, such as your teeth becoming loose or even you losing some or all of your teeth! This is serious, and Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental and his caring, well-trained team are committed to giving you the best gum disease treatment available. Your Los Angeles periodontist provides excellent state-of-the-art laser treatment for gum disease, and can help you avoid serious damage to your smile.

At Downtown Dental, your Los Angeles periodontist provides several services that can help with gum disease, including:
  • Scaling and root planing therapy – Plaque is a major factor in the development of gum disease. One of the front line treatments used to inhibit bacterial colonization is scaling and root planing. In this treatment, plaque is removed from teeth and areas below the gum line. This form of deep cleaning may involve both manual and laser removal methods. As with all of our treatments scaling and root planing is performed in the most comfortable manner.
  • Periodontal laser therapy – If gum disease is not quickly treated, bacteria can cause damage to periodontal tissue as well as bone in the jaw. Advanced gum disease may require surgical intervention in order to avoid tooth loss. If surgery becomes necessary, we may complete care using laser technology. Laser gum surgery is very effective and far less invasive than standard techniques, leading to less bleeding and swelling, and hastening recovery.
  • Antibiotic therapy – Because bacteria and infection may go hand in hand, there are some instances in which antibiotic therapy may be necessary to restore optimal gum health.
  • Perio Protect Method® – Because proper oral hygiene can be an ongoing battle, your Los Angeles periodontist offers an excellent “weapon” against oral bacteria. It is the Perio Protect Method. After we have performed scaling and root planing, we will give you the Perio Protect Method as a follow through and oral hygiene maintenance plan. Your Los Angeles periodontist makes a customized tray that fits over your teeth. Then he creates a solution just for you that will keep your mouth clean, fresh and bacteria free. You put the solution in the trays at home. This system provides you with the easiest, least invasive and effective methods to treat gum disease! Our patients rave about how clean their mouths feel every single day and they love that often, their teeth are whiter and their breath fresher!

Reviews

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey but...trust me...it was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
