Perio treatments at Los Angeles dental practice achieve superior outcomes

Periodontist in Los Angeles Area

What goes on inside of our mouth has an effect on our overall health. Dr. Don Mungcal at Downtown Dental in Los Angeles combines advanced technology and tools to achieve positive outcomes for his patients. This is integrated into all treatment areas, but particularly perio for gum disease. While preserving and improving gum health, teeth and oral structure will be preserved, and patients will experience positive effects on other body systems in the process.

Our understanding of the importance of healthy gums has caused us to research and adopt more extensive methods to treat periodontal disease from its earliest stages. Prevention is always ideal, but if gum disease has developed, prompt treatment is crucial. We treat our patients using not only methods offered by other providers in our area, but also with expanded and more technologically-advanced options, as well, to promote faster and more efficient healing.

Plaque allowed to remain on teeth will harden into tartar. These substances that need to be removed from teeth through personal oral hygiene and regular professional dental cleanings. Some dental practices consider this to be enough to combat gum disease. While we find these methods useful and effective, we also believe that optimal treatment may require more.

Our mouths are a breeding ground for various types of bacteria. These bacteria are the force behind the formation of plaque and tartar, yet still remain even if these build-ups are removed. What this means is that even though plaque and tartar have been removed, the harmful bacteria are still present, and goes right back to work to damage and destroy healthy gum tissue, possibly oral structure, and even introducing more risk factors into other areas of a patient’s health. To break this cycle, Dr. Mungcal and the quality staff of Downtown Dental are able to analyze the bacteria at work on an individual, in order to develop a targeted treatment plan in order to kill the particular strains at work. This leads to improved patient health via the route of least invasiveness.

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.

Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it's the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there's nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We're going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
