Los Angeles Dentist, Dr. Bijan Afar, Now Offers Comprehensive Periodontal Treatments
Date:7/12/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Gum disease can be a serious dental health issue. Although periodontal disease is highly treatable in its earliest stages, many people fail to recognize the symptoms until the condition has advanced. Once gum disease has caused serious structural or functional problems, the damage cannot be reversed. Treatment is essential to prevent further damage and restore gum health. Los Angeles dental veneers expert, Dr. Bijan Afar, now offers comprehensive periodontal treatments to help his patients improve their gum health and restore lost teeth.

Periodontal disease may have symptoms that include red and swollen gums, bleeding gums, gums that are receding, chronic bad breath or loose teeth. Regular dental checkups can aid in early diagnosis, but patients who notice bleeding gums or any other symptoms of gum disease can benefit from an immediate evaluation. Dr. Afar, Los Angeles porcelain crowns expert, often recommends a deep cleaning procedure known as a scaling and root planing, which cleans plaque, tartar and infection from above and below the gumline. Additionally, patients may benefit from antimicrobial treatment, which combats the bacteria that cause gum disease. These medications can be administered topically or orally.

If bone or tissue loss has occurred, surgical periodontal treatment may be necessary. Bone and tissue grafts can help restore lost tissue while pocket reduction surgery can tighten and restore receding gums to protect the tooth root. If tooth loss has already occurred, dental implants can replace the teeth in the most natural way possible by restoring both the root and the crown of any missing teeth.

Dr. Bijan Afar, expert in full mouth reconstruction in Los Angeles, is a graduate of UCLA, where he earned a degree in microbiology and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. A top student at UCLA’s School of Dentistry, Dr. Afar received the NIH Dentist-Scientist Fellowship and the Hortense Fishbaugh Scholarship. He continued his studies at the University of Washington at Seattle, where he focused on periodontics and implant dentistry. Today, Dr. Afar is a well-known dentist and expert in dental implants in Los Angeles and a member of the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association.
