Oral hygiene is not only a crucial part of maintaining optimal oral health, but is also necessary for ensuring your overall health. Periodontal disease has been linked to some serious health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, kidney disease and cancer. Taking care of your teeth and gums isn’t just about preventing cavities or maintaining a picture perfect smile, but rather protecting yourself against serious health risks that can develop down line. A proper at-home oral health care routine is the most important step in preventing the development of periodontal disease. This includes flossing daily, brushing at least twice a day, maintaining a healthy diet that consists of the right fruits, vegetables and proteins that have been shown to reduce inflammation associated with periodontal disease, and regularly scheduled cleanings and checkups with your trusted Marina Del Rey periodontist to ensure you are properly caring for your teeth and gums.

Periodontal disease is an inflammation of the gums that when left untreated can cause serious health complications not only for your oral health, but also for your overall health. Periodontal disease begins in its mildest form as gingivitis and can continue to develop into more severe and aggressive forms of gum disease. Regardless of what stage you have discovered your periodontal disease, all forms of periodontal disease, mild or severe require immediate treatment by a periodontist in Marina Del Rey in order to treat and reverse the effects of the dental infection on your gums, teeth and supporting bone structures.

Periodontal disease is caused when the bacteria found in plaque, the sticky film that builds up around the teeth, begins to spread to the gums. In the early stages, it causes an inflammation of the gums, also known as gingivitis. As the bacteria continue to spread deeper into the gums, and the infection worsens, the gum tissue around the teeth begins to separate from the tooth, creating what are known as periodontal pockets. These pockets create a space for bacteria to thrive, and further destroy the gum tissue, affecting the tooth roots, and eventually reaching the alveolar bone, the thickened ridge that contains the tooth sockets. When bacteria spreads to the bone, bone loss may occur, and teeth can fall out.

If you experience periodontal disease, a periodontist in Marina Del Rey can help treat the infection, restore lost gum tissue and bone, and rejuvenate your smile. With specialized periodontal treatment in Marina Del Rey, your trusted Marina Del Rey periodontist can help reverse the damaging effects of gum disease to help you smile confidently again.

For patients who suffer from gum disease, periodontal disease treatment in Marina Del Rey can be a viable solution to achieving optimal oral health.

I had a gum graft done by Dr. Krivitsky and the whole process was beyond my expectations. Her and the staff are so friendly. She spent time to talk me through the procedure and listened to my concerns without rushing me through anything. As someone who has a level 10 anxiety for anything teeth related, I can wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Dr. Krivitsky is the epitome of kind, caring and loving.  She deeply cares for her patients and it shows from the moment you meet her.
I cannot recommend Dr. Krivitsky highly enough to anyone looking for specialized dentistry. 

Patient Experience

Marina Del Rey

I suffered from gum recession for more than 10 years. I read about the PRF gum lift surgery and had a consultation with Dr. Krivitsky.
The surgery went extremely well, I had a smooth, speedy recovery, and I am highly satisfied with the results.  

Gum Recession

I recently had two wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Aalam. My experience was nothing short of amazing. Dr. Aalam took the time to explain in detail what he was going to do and what to expect during and after the procedure. He was not rushed, and answered all my questions so that I was informed and felt quite comfortable.
