Restoring Soft Tissue Health

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.

Signs You Need Soft Tissue Treatment

Our Soft Tissue Services

Gum Recession Treatment

Receding gums can lead to sensitivity, loss of smile aesthetics, and loose teeth. We’re trained in the Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting, though we offer this surgery, too. We’ll insert a tiny needle into the tissue, then shift the gums back over the exposed tooth roots. This technique is not painful, doesn’t require incisions, and is a permanent solution for gum recession.

Scaling And Root Planing

Take the first step in fighting gum disease without surgery. Scaling clears the teeth of plaque and tartar buildup. Root planing smooths the tooth surfaces so healthy gums can reattach to reduce periodontal pocket depth. Scaling and root planing may be all that’s needed to return gum tissue to a healthy state.

Osseous Surgery

Manage more severe cases of gum disease with comprehensive osseous surgery. We’ll remove any diseased gum tissue and bone, then clear the bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the teeth. Next, we’ll sanitize the periodontal pockets and suture the gum tissue back in place to reduce periodontal pocket depth.

Periodontal Maintenance

Advanced stages of gum disease can only be managed, not cured. Routine periodontal maintenance every 3-4 months provides a deep cleaning of the teeth and periodontal pockets. Keeping bacteria from spreading and damaging soft tissue and bone reduces the risk for gum disease worsening in the future.
