Do you have problems with your dental implants or gums? You may need a Periodontist.
A periodontist is a highly trained dental specialist who focuses performs procedures on the gum, bone, root, and soft tissue that make up the supporting structures of the teeth. These procedures include reconstructive surgery, such as dental implants, as well as treatment for gingivitis and periodontal disease, which attack the gums and jawline and may lead to tooth loss or jaw damage.
Periodontal screening is recommended in order to detect any problems that may affect the gums and to stop periodontal disease in its earliest stages in order to prevent any damage to the teeth. Bleeding gums while brushing can often be the first sign of gum disease. If this occurs, it is recommended to consult a periodontist or a general dentist as soon as possible so that treatment and prevention of further damage can begin.
Dr. Alexander Ash provides periodontal screening at his Studio Dental Care office which serves Studio City, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles with a full-spectrum of dental services. Dr. Ash recommends periodontal screenings at regular intervals, in addition to at the first sign of bleeding or discomfort at the gum line.
