Beverly Hills Periodontist
Your mouth contains a multitude of bacteria. These bacteria live in plaque, a colorless biofilm that accumulates on and between teeth and especially near the gumline. They produce acids and toxins that irritate the gums. If the bacteria are allowed to remain in contact with the gums for extended periods, the gums can become red and swollen. This is considered an early stage of periodontal disease, or gingivitis. Dr. Baradaran, our Beverly Hills periodontist, provides preventative and therapeutic treatments for those with periodontal disease.
If periodontitis is not addressed at this early stage, the gums can become more irritated and inflamed as the infection worsens. The gums will eventually pull away from the teeth, allowing pockets to form. These pockets provide even more places for plaque and tartar to build up. As the infection progresses, the supporting tissues and jawbone begin to deteriorate. Dr. Baradaran, our periodontist in Beverly Hills, encourages prevention whenever possible and provides prompt diagnoses to reduce the risks of long-term complications from gum disease, such as tooth loss.
