Do you suffer from periodontal issues? Get the best periodontics treatments including relief for inflammation and infection of the gums. Left untreated, gum disease can spread, causing extreme health issues such as bone and tooth loss. At Downey Dental Arts, our expert periodontist will work to restore your oral health through the treatment of any gum-related issues.

The Impact of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, causes gums to become tender, red, inflamed, or sensitive. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria, tartar, and plaque. Because infection can spread to other parts of the mouth and body, all aspects of the disease must be treated effectively right away. As the disease worsens, gums begin to recede from the teeth. The worsening of infection puts your teeth and oral health at serious risk.

Periodontal issues can lead to loss of bone structure in the jaw and can cause the tissues holding teeth in place to deteriorate. You should not wait before infection advances before seeking treatment.

Our Periodontics Care

Downey Dental Arts is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care. Dr. Barkhordar combines safe, effective practices with modern advancements to stop and correct the progression of periodontal problems. Each periodontics plan is tailored to fit the individual patient’s needs.

Root planing (also known as scaling) is one common method of treating periodontal disease. Scaling is a non-surgical treatment that removes tartar and plaque buildup, providing gums with a deep cleaning that stops the spread of inflammation or infection. Your gums can then heal naturally, restoring your comfort and overall oral health.

The gums are first treated with local anesthetic to guarantee your comfort. More advanced cases may require several visits to fully treat.

In severe cases where tissue has already been lost or the jaw bone infected, grafting may provide a solution. Bone grafting can be applied to a single tooth or several teeth to cover exposed tooth roots. Soft tissue grafting can restore receding gums.
