LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Sam Markzar, Los Angeles periodontist, offers the latest treatments for periodontal disease at his office, Los Angeles Periodontal Arts and Implants.
Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults ages 35 and over. Since the progression of periodontal disease can be gradual, many patients may not even realize they have developed this disease until they begin experiencing severe discomfort or lose a tooth. Advanced periodontal disease may cause gum recession, resulting in loss of gum attachment, and formation of deep pockets. Bacteria collect in these pockets, increasing the possibility of tooth loss and bone deterioration.
Dr. Markzar, Beverly Hills periodontist, is committed to providing the most advanced treatments for periodontal disease. He begins with a thorough examination, and takes detailed images of the teeth and gums. He then uses a periodontal probe to measure the depth of the pockets surrounding the teeth. Non-surgical treatments will be performed by Dr. Markzar to help eliminate the harmful bacteria and plaque. If harmful bacteria have not been completely eliminated, then pocket reduction surgery may be performed, if necessary, to prevent bacteria from gathering in pockets under the teeth. Dr. Markzar will work to improve the appearance of the patient's smile by placing dental implants to replace lost teeth, and gum or bone grafts to replace the lost gum and bone tissue, respectively.
Los Angeles Periodontal Arts and Implants is home to the most advanced technology available for the treatment of periodontal disease. Dr. Markzar, Beverly Hills implant dentist, uses advanced imaging technologies to plan periodontal surgeries, including I-CAT imaging technology, which creates high-resolution images of the soft tissues, bone structure, and the teeth. Piezo electrics surgical tools help Dr. Markzar perform precise dental surgeries in a non-invasive manner. Anatomage software can also be used to facilitate the placement of dental implants after the periodontal disease is remedied.
