Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky apply a personalized approach to treating patients, to ensure each procedure is tailored to their specific needs. Each case is unique, and your experienced Sherman Oaks periodontists utilize advanced technology coupled with cutting-edge techniques to provide minimally invasive, comfortable and effective care. 

For patients who experience gum recession, a gum graft procedure may be an ideal solution. A gum graft is performed by using tissue from a different part of the mouth, most likely from the roof of patient’s mouth, and grafting it above the recession to cover the exposed tooth root and realign the gum line. Often times, patients experience tooth sensitivity, pain and discomfort when eating hot or cold foods due to their exposed tooth roots. Having the roots exposed also increases patients’ risk of developing disease and decay. Additionally, the recession causes the teeth to look longer, leaving many patients displeased and self-concious about their smile when talking or laughing. Gum grafting can be performed to restore healthy gum tissue, oral health and patients’ overall confidence! Patient’s can also opt for the revolutionary Rejuvagum Lift procedure. This innovative technique utilizes a sample of a patient’s blood to develope platelet-rich fibrin, a membrane-like substance that is composed of plasma, white blood cells and platelets, and is rich in regenerative growth factors. PRF is used to regenerate lost tissue, restore a healthy gum line, and enhance the body’s healing abilities.

I had severe gum recessions and Dr. Aalam patched everything up with one procedure. He is warm, intelligent, and makes himself available to you at all parts of the process. If you need periodontal work done, or even just need an opinion, go see Dr. Aalam. I couldn’t recommend him more.
