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!

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
