What is periodontal disease treatment?

Periodontal disease treatment addresses inflammation caused by gum disease. Specifically, it treats:
Gingivitis
Gingivitis occurs when plaque –– a thin film of bacteria, saliva, and food particles –– collects on your teeth and beneath your gums. Over time, the buildup irritates your gums, causing them to become inflamed and pull away from your teeth.
Periodontitis
When gingivitis goes untreated, it progresses to periodontitis. With periodontitis, your gums continue receding. That causes your teeth to loosen, increasing your risk of more serious oral health problems.

Who can benefit from periodontal disease treatment?

Consider periodontal disease treatment at Sherman Oaks Smile Studio if you experience any of the following symptoms:
  • Swollen or puffy gums
  • Gums that feel tender or swollen
  • Bad breath
  • Painful chewing
  • Gums that pull away from your teeth
  • A change in the way your teeth fit together
  • New spaces developing between your teeth
You should also seek periodontal disease treatment if your gums bleed after brushing or flossing your teeth.

What happens during periodontal disease treatment?

At Sherman Oaks Smile Studio, periodontal disease treatment begins with a review of your dental records and a discussion of your symptoms. Next, Dr. Zarabian performs an oral exam and takes a series of digital X-rays to assess the severity of the infection. After gathering the necessary information, Dr. Zarabian and the team develop a custom periodontal disease treatment plan.

What are the types of periodontal disease treatment?

At Sherman Oaks Smile Studio, Dr. Zarabian and the team offer several types of periodontal disease treatment, including:
Patient education
The easiest way to keep gum disease at bay is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Dr. Zarabian can teach you how to maximize the benefits of brushing and flossing. She can also make nutrition recommendations and schedule routine checkups and teeth cleaning to prevent plaque from building up.
Scaling and root planing
If you have gingivitis, Dr. Zarabian might recommend scaling and root planing. At Sherman Oaks Smile Studio, the highly skilled dental hygienists have more than 10 years of experience doing this type of treatment. During scaling and root planing, your provider gently removes plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. This process smooths out your tooth roots, preventing your gums from receding even more.
Laser gum treatment
If you have periodontitis, Dr. Zarabian might recommend laser gum treatment. Laser gum treatment uses targeted light energy to eliminate harmful bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your mouth.
Customized recalls and checkups
Sometimes, gum disease requires several types of treatment. If that’s the case, Dr. Zarabian and the team might recommend checkups every few weeks to monitor your progress. If necessary, Dr. Zarabian can even prescribe antibiotics to complement in-office therapies.

I love Dr. Niki! I had a last minute appointment and she was able to squeeze me in. She gives the best injections and walks you through the process. The office is so chill and so comfortable, we were listening to Mariah Carey music. 100% recommend her!

I had been to two other dentists because I wanted to get veneers. i feel like no one understood exactly what I wanted but Dr Niki. she explained everything so well i never felt rushed during the consult and she literally answered all of my questions. I was not looking for anything fake. I was very picky and she delivered with such a great detail. she was gentle and so nice.

Dr. Niki did such a great job with fixing my chipped tooth in such a quick turn around! Her and her staff were wonderful in guiding me through the process and kept me informed on what to expect, and the tooth looks like it was never chipped! My previous dentist moved so this was a great experience for starting with a new dental office!

Dr. Niki and her team are all amazing. Needing work done on your teeth is not always fun nor something to look forward to, but Dr. Niki is a great Dentist that knows what shes doing, is informative throughout the whole process, and genuinely cares about her patients. While in the chair I have no worries and she has my complete trust. I will see no other Dentist but her. The Hygienist Cristina is also amazing and does amazing work, my gums dont hurt like at other places from the past who tend to overdo it. Theres also a special assistant there that knows a great deal and is very efficient. She places my fillings, has made a few temporary crowns for me, and seems to be very experienced. Everyone there is very informative and ready to answer all questions very clearly. The front office staff seems to have everything in order as I am in and out with very little to sign or provide since my first visit. All my information is there and they run my insurance ahead of time in order to provide me, and all patients im sure, with details on what the insurance covers and what I would have to pay out of pocket for my visit/procedure. Clear and transparent interactions. Like I said, Amazing Team.

Amazingly quick and painless filling. I loved the optional shot before I left to counteract the Novocain. By the time I got home my mouth and lips were totally back to normal.

Dr. Zarabian’s office is extremely welcoming and professional. Unlike other medical and dental offices I have been too, I was taken to the dental room and seen by the doctor right away. Dr. Zarabian and her staff made me feel comfortable and informed when discussing all my treatment options and when completing my dental work. I highly recommend this dental office!
