The most comprehensive gum disease treatment offered in Los Angeles

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Regular dental visits and good oral hygiene practices will go a long way in preventing gum disease. Despite these efforts, various strains of bacteria may sometimes still live in a person's mouth and cause gums to become inflamed or infected. To eliminate certain bacteria types from a person's mouth, targeted treatment may be necessary. To help combat harmful bacteria that contribute to gum disease, Dr. Don Mungcal maintains an array of useful tools in his Los Angeles practice. Some dentists and periodontists have a basic plan of action that they follow for every patient when gum disease is diagnosed. At Downtown Dental, a patient is treated to individualized care in order to halt progression and remedy the issue using the least invasive methods possible.

Testing is available that allows us to determine what is specifically is at work in the patient's mouth. Once this has been established, antibiotics can be prescribed to destroy it. Other providers may not offer this, and instead turn immediately to procedural solutions. While some improvement may be experienced initially, the bacteria remain and go back to work to continue the path of destruction. It is easy to understand how we are able to achieve satisfactory outcomes in the fight against gum disease.

Hands-on methods will be combined with antibiotic treatment based on need. Once again, we have multiple choices so that we can tailor an individuated treatment plan for the patient. Scaling and planing, and laser therapy, may be used to gently improve gum health. Yet at this point, we still don't leave a patient defenseless. We go a step further to offer the PerioProtect Method to a patient where it is deemed beneficial to ensure continued health.

Why would you risk the impact of less than the best treatment for gum disease? Call to schedule an appointment for routine care with Downtown Dental, where your gum health is evaluated at each appointment. We encourage a call to us if you notice any bleeding, swelling, redness, or gum irritation, so that you may be seen promptly. When you choose us, you'll be partnered to receive the best in care that won't allow gum disease to invade and destroy your health.

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.
