We are dedicated to helping you improve your overall oral health through effective preventive and general dentistry measures. For those who have periodontal disease, we offer several treatments, including periodontal surgery, to help return you to a state of optimal oral health. Periodontal (gum) disease begins when plaque and calculus begin to accumulate on the teeth and destroy the gums, teeth, and bones of the mouth. If left untreated, periodontal disease has been connected with:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Pregnancy complications
When significant periodontal disease is apparent, Dr. Dillon may recommend periodontal surgery. Used only for advanced cases of periodontal disease, periodontal surgery can help halt the progression of the disease and return you to a healthier oral state. Through consistent maintenance care, you can keep your teeth healthy for years to come. Contact our office in West Los Angeles immediately if you notice gums that are red, bleeding, or swollen as these are some of the first signs of periodontal disease. We look forward to improving your oral health!
