LOS ANGELES, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For a comprehensive periodontist, Los Angeles residents can do no better than Dr. Peiman Soleymani. The board-certified periodontist is skilled at all aspects of advanced periodontal procedures, cosmetic dental surgery, and dental implants in Los Angeles. However, one of the doctor's most important duties as a leading periodontist in Santa Monica and surrounding areas is supporting optimal gum health for his patients.
Healthy, thick gums are important, especially in their role of supporting the underlying bones and covering the roots of the teeth. At Dr. Soleymani's office, the Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center, patients can expect keen attention to detail in addressing their needs and helping them overcome the problems that periodontal disease can cause to oral health. This can be assisted through many innovative techniques, like regeneration of lost bone in the jaws and subepithelial connective tissue grafting depending on the patient's unique situation in order to prolong oral health and chewing function.
Receding gums, medically known as gingival recession, results when the gum-line exposes the teeth. This leaves them prone to agonizing sensitivity and, in severe cases, the teeth can fall out. Infections can result if trapped food or plaque builds up, as well. Dr. Soleymani emphasizes the importance of seeing a knowledgeable periodontist to address gum recession; because once the gums recede, they will never regrow naturally and soft tissue grafting is a necessity.
Although patients may be frightened by the idea of dental surgery, Dr. Soleymani does his best to make it as smooth as possible. He is an expert in periodontics, bringing years of experience in the field to every procedure. His practice is built on fully educating patients about needed treatments, so they know what to fully expect during their procedures.
When performing soft tissue grating, Dr. Soleymani also offers a modern alternatives to autogenous soft tissue grafts (the patient's own tissues harvested from their palate). These exciting techniques demonstrate reduced pain and eliminate the need to make an incision on the patient's palate. Now, Dr. Soleymani is able to treat larger areas, often in a single appointment, with two types of materials, called Mucograft® and AlloDerm®, composed of porcine collagen and human cadaver skin, respectively.
Mucograft and AlloDerm are two materials that offer complete tooth root coverage and reduction of gum recession, as well as higher patient satisfaction due to faster recovery and reduced post-operative pain. These soft tissue grafts regrow the gums when the patient's own blood vessels penetrate the implanted collagen meaning there is very little risk of rejection. Also, the graft is identical in color to the patient's own gum tissue, so it is a cosmetic improvement as well.
