Why Choose US As Your Los Angeles Periodontists?


Deciding on who to trust with your oral health can be a big decision. An individual’s oral health is not solely limited to his or her mouth, but actually affects overall health as well. Most patients automatically think of going to their local dentist when dealing with mouth issues, but often their mouths need the specialized care of a periodontist. Unlike dentists, periodontists specialize in working with the mouth’s soft tissue (i.e., gums) and bone.

Surgical procedures are not “one size fits all” solutions and having the right periodontist can mean the difference between a successful or failed treatment.

Choosing a periodontist is the most important decision you’ll make after deciding to undergo treatment. The surgeon’s skill, experience, and credentials should be taken into account before committing to any procedure.  It is also important to find a periodontist who listens to you to understand your individual needs and goals, and who you feel comfortable communicating with throughout the entire treatment process.

There are a number of reasons why you should pick the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy for your next periodontist visit:
