Restore Your Overall Well-Being

Gum disease may begin quietly, without any signs. Over time, however, your gums will start to bleed or feel tender when you brush and floss. When plaque and calculus are allowed to accumulate on your teeth, your gums become inflamed and tender before pulling away from your teeth. If left unchecked, this infection can cause more than just a little “pink in the sink.” Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and even systemic health conditions, like cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes complications.

Our doctor has completed years of focused education and training after dental school in diagnosing, treating, and preventing problems related to the gums.

Our Comprehensive Treatments for Gum Disease

Dr. Sanjabi is a certified LANAP dentist in Downey, CA. This revolutionary treatment doesn’t require scalpels or sutures, which means a more comfortable procedure and faster overall recovery time for you. Aside from being minimally invasive, this laser gum surgery also effectively treats periodontal disease with a high success rate and a dramatically reduced recurrence of gum disease. Dr. Sanjabi uses a dental laser to remove bacteria and infected tissue. LANAP also encourages soft tissue regeneration, increases attachments between gum tissue and bone, and strengthens your teeth. For more information, schedule your LANAP consultation today and save your natural teeth.

Dr. Sanjabi is also certified to provide LAPIP in Downey, CA. Peri-implantitis is a condition very similar to gum disease in natural teeth. It occurs in tissues around dental implants causing inflammation of the gums and progressive bone loss. For this procedure, our dentist uses a dental laser to remove damaged tissue and bacteria from gums around infected dental implants to encourage new tissue growth. Many studies have shown that LAPIP is one of the most effective treatments for peri-implantitis. In fact, one study found LAPIP successfully treated 95% of failing implants by promoting reintegration and bone growth. Protect your investment in your smile with laser gum surgery.

We also perform gingivectomies to restore optimal gum health and reshape your soft tissue for function and esthetic appeal. Gingivectomies treat gummy smiles by removing the overgrowth of tissue to recontour your gums. They are also used to treat gum pockets due to periodontal disease. During a labial frenectomy, we use a dental laser to remove the soft tissue attachment between your upper lip and gums in preparation for dental implant placement or to prevent pulling in cases where the attachment is too short. This procedure can be used to correct tongue-ties, as well.

We perform a minimally invasive gum grafting technique called Pinhole® Surgical Technique™ (PST™) to treat receding gums without incisions or sutures. Instead of harvesting tissue from a donor or another part of your mouth, tissue is pulled from a small opening or “pinhole” in your gums, which means less recovery time, a faster process and swift results.

Osseous surgery is the most aggressive treatment for advanced gum disease in Downey, CA. It involves removing the diseased gum tissue and repairing the damaged bone to restore support to the teeth. This surgery also removes trapped bacteria and calculus to get rid of the deep pockets in your gums. After your gum surgery, you should follow your comprehensive treatment plan by attending all post-operative appointments and practicing good oral hygiene at home, doing so will aid in your healing process and optimize your results.
Once your gum disease is treated, we recommend periodontal maintenance to ensure it does not return. This procedure is completed every 3-4 months and involves a deep cleaning of your teeth at and below the gumline to remove bacteria and plaque accumulation. To prevent prolonged gum disease, Dr. Sanjabi can replace your routine hygiene appointment with this effective, ongoing maintenance plan.
