238 5 star reviews and counting. Here are some of the things our patients have to say about one of the best periodontists in Southern California!
The gaps left by missing teeth can be filled and your smile restored beautifully through the implementation of dental implants. Dental implant restorations replace your full tooth, from root to crown, for a smile that supports your oral health while boosting your confidence!
Gum Recession Treatment
Your receding gums can be successfully treated with our recession treatment designed to build up existing tissue along your visible gumline. Using the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can rejuvenate your gums to encourage growth. This helps lessen your sensitive teeth and lead to a healthier mouth.
Procedures and treatments just got easier and faster thanks to our cutting-edge laser treatment technology. Dental lasers can help with many treatments in any part of your mouth—from your gums and teeth to your throat. Plus, they help those treatments go faster and smoother—all with less pain!
If you need to replace a full set of teeth, don’t settle for traditional dentures that can slip and cause discomfort. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept can replace a full arch of teeth with just 4–6 dental implants. The dentures will be anchored securely to your jaw, and your jawbone will stay healthy and supported.
Advanced Bone and Gum Reconstruction
Having good oral health includes having healthy gums and bone structure to support your beautiful teeth. We offer many advanced treatments to help reshape receding gums or rebuild your jawbone. This includes anything from gum rejuvenation and osseous surgery, to bone grafts and ridge preservation.
