What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is a general term for a build-up of bacteria and inflammation of the gum line. Typically speaking, gum disease can be caused by poor oral care routines, skipping dental appointments, genetics, advanced age, or chronic illness.
If your gum disease is left untreated, you could be at a higher risk for developing the following conditions:
- Heart Disease
- Premature Or Low-Weight Babies
Symptoms Of Gum Disease
Gum disease is not always obvious to those who are experiencing its earliest phases, which is why it's so important to attend regular dental checkups at Beverly Hills Aesthetic Dentistry. If you have one or more of the following symptoms, it's time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hanam-Jahr right away:
- Loose teeth
- Tooth and mouth pain
- Receding, swollen, and painful gums
- Bleeding while brushing and flossing
- Mouth sores
- Bad breath
- Pus between teeth
- Ill-fitting dentures
- A change in your bite
How We Treat Gum Disease
Although gum disease can evolve into a serious condition if left untreated, our team has the right tools, technologies, and know-how to restore your gums to a healthy condition. We offer the following periodontal treatments at our Beverly Hills dental office:
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)
Did you know that receding gums can weaken your teeth, causing root damage that could, ultimately, lead to tooth loss? If your gum disease has caused considerable gum recession, we may recommend pinhole gum therapy to restore the health of your mouth.
Dr. Hanam-Jahr is a certified Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) dentist. This special therapeutic method is one of the least invasive ways to repair the gums - no grafting or stitches required! This minimally invasive procedure can restore years to your smile and improve your overall health.
There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
- Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
- Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
- No need for uncomfortable sutures
- No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
- No need to take donor tissue from the patient’s palate
- Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results
DenMat® Perio Restore®
Perio Restore® Oral Cleansing Gel is a 1.7% hydrogen peroxide gel formulated to help you keep your periodontal disease under control in between office visits. Typically, we prescribe it to be used in conjunction with Perio Restore trays, customized mouth guards made for convenient periodontal treatment in the comfort of your own home!
Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
Scaling and root planing (SRP) is one of the most common procedures for treating gingivitis by deep cleaning below the gum line and smoothing the surface of the tooth. Scaling and root planing removes plaque, bacteria, and acid buildup that can cause gum inflammation.
A simple SRP helps to restore and promote healthier teeth, gums, and overall oral health while also preventing all stages of gum disease.
Laser Gum Treatments
Dr. Hanam-Jahr uses cutting-edge soft tissue lasers to help combat the signs of gum disease. This advanced technology is used in a wide range of gum treatments and offers heightened precision and control.
Laser treatments are also preferred by most patients because they are generally faster and less painful than conventional and surgical gum treatments.
