If you’ve noticed that your gums are pulling away from your teeth or they bleed easily when you brush or floss, it’s time to visit our dentists! Gum disease is a dangerous and progressive condition that can cause irreversible damage to your gums, bone, and teeth if not treated. The bacteria that affect these structures can also travel to other parts of your body, aggravating systemic conditions like diabetes or affecting the health of your heart. Receding gums are one of the first signs of gum disease, but even if you don’t have this disease, you’ll still need treatment to reposition your gum tissue and protect your teeth. Our periodontist is a specialist in gum tissue procedures and provides personalized, targeted treatment for gum recession and gum disease in Beverly Hills, Northridge, and Thousand Oaks, CA. Using innovative techniques, we’ll restore the health of your soft tissue and keep your mouth free from disease and infection.
