At Mid Peninsula Dental Specialists in Los Altos CA, we specialize in periodontics and gum disease. We do so because it is one of the most notorious causes for more complicated dental issues and is very common, especially among those with a lax dental care regimen. So, while we offer a host of solutions to our patients, our first piece of advice is always to ensure you are brushing regularly and with a soft-tipped brush, and that you’re flossing after meals with proper dental tape – not floss picks. This is the best way to ensure gum disease never arises, or that it is dealt with early should it appear.
However, if you’ve tried this and still see symptoms like blood in the sink and pink swelling around your gums, it is time to give us a visit. Our solution will depend on your needs as a patient, as well as your medical history. We offer:
- Root Planing
- LANAP™ Laser Gum Surgery
- Pocket Reduction Surgery
- Guided Bone And Tissue Regeneration
This cutting-edge technology can improve your chances at preventing, fixing, and safeguarding against the different stages of gum disease. Whether you’ve only just started noticing symptoms and suspect early periodontal disease, or you are seeing the effects of prolonged decay and are worried your teeth might be affected by advanced gum disease, Mid Peninsula Dental Specialists in Los Altos CA can help. We serve satisfied patients in Palo Alto and Mountain View and offer periodontics, gum disease treatment, and many other services. Contact us today!
