Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a serious problem that affects an estimated 80 percent of American adults. If your teeth feel sensitive or loose, or if you experience swollen or bleeding gums, this could be a sign that you have periodontal gum disease.
Periodontal gum disease can cause chronic bad breath. If chewing is painful or you notice any of the symptoms above, you may want to get tested for gum disease. Luckily, our periodontist in Sherman Oaks, CA, can treat this disease and save your mouth from developing worse problems.

The earlier periodontal disease is caught, the easier it is to treat. At your checkup, Dr. Perlaza or Dr. Tabandeh will examine your mouth thoroughly. X- rays will make a definitive diagnosis if your periodontist notices any signs of periodontal disease. Your dentist will give you a local anesthetic if periodontal treatment is necessary and then treat your mouth, one side at a time at each session. The procedure is comfortable, safe, and effective, with no lasting side effects. You will leave the office ready to tackle your other responsibilities, with a cleaner, healthier mouth.
Sherman Oaks Laser Dentist for Periodontal Treatment
If signs of periodontal gum disease are present during your checkup, we will first take a few X-rays to determine the full extent of the problem. After a definitive diagnosis, we will schedule a laser dentistry appointment for you. During this visit, a tiny laser fiber will be inserted between the tooth and the gum to clear away the infection. There is no cutting, sewing, general anesthetic, or pain with the procedure. As Sherman Oak’s foremost laser dentist, Dr. Perlaza can complete this procedure in a two-hour session.
We care about our patients and want them to enjoy the best possible oral health. With our periodontal treatment, we can prevent serious health problems and help our patients feel better and live happier.
