When you imagine a beautiful smile, often the first thing to come to mind are how white or straight the teeth are. But a dazzling smile actually begins with healthy gums. Gum health is the number one most important part of sustaining lasting oral and overall health, and a healthy, picture-perfect smile. Caring for your gums is simple, as long as you implement a proper at-home oral hygiene routine, which includes brushing twice a day, and flossing once a day. 

Plaque is a sticky film that builds up around the teeth is carries bacteria, and can harden within 12 hours. If you take proper care of your teeth and work towards optimal oral health, brushing and flossing daily, you can avoid a buildup of plaque and prevent damage to your teeth and gums, including tooth decay and gum disease. If the plaque is left on the teeth and is not removed regularly through brushing and flossing, it will harden into tartar, also known as calculus. Calculus can form both below and above the gum line, where the bacteria can spread deeper into the gums, causing inflammation, periodontal pockets and permanent damage to the underlying bone. If you experience any signs of periodontal disease in Venice, Los Angeles, it is important to see a periodontist in Venice, California to properly diagnose and treat the affected areas, and restore your oral health.

Healthy gum tissue should be light-pink in color, and fit tightly around each tooth with no more than 1-3 millimeters of space between the gum tissue and tooth. As periodontal disease spreads, the gum tissue will become inflamed, and slowly pull away from the teeth. The space that forms between the tooth and the gum tissue is known as a periodontal pocket. These pockets allow bacteria to accumulate and spread throughout the gums, causing the gums to recess and wear away. If you experience gum recession in Venice, Los Angeles as a result of periodontal disease, seeking care from an expert Venice, California periodontist is the first step towards restoring your oral health.

I was referred to Dr. Aalam for bone graft and implant. He did the extraction and bone graft so beautifully and painlessly. I am a pediatric dentist and all I could think of was I hope my patients are as comfortable with me as I am with Dr.Aalam and his beautiful office and staff. 
Everyone made the experience so easy and perfect. I would refer this office to everyone. Thank you for making my periodontal experience so pleasant!

Bone Graft and Dental Implant


I always enjoy my visits to Dr. Aalam. From successful soft tissue surgery on a region that other periodontists didn’t want to touch, to follow up visits, every experience has been timely, warm and professional. Both doctors are so pleasant, engaging and friendly, as are the staff members. I’ve always felt I had the opportunity to ask questions and learn new ways to improve my oral health. 

Gum Graft


Dr. Aalam is that rare breed of human who is a great professional and a good human being as well. He took care to explain all of the factors that should go into deciding whether or not I should go for the surgery – he didn’t just try to sell me on it. Dr. Aalam himself is extremely kind and approachable so it was a pleasure to get to know him on a more personal level as well.  I’m currently on day 3 post-op and the healing process is going perfectly smoothly, which is not a surprise given Dr. Aalam’s level of expertise.

Patient Experience


I traveled from out of state because I believe in Stem Cell Therapies and PRP (having had great results with other stem cell treatments). Dr Aalam was able to treat my entire mouth in 1 visit. (With traditional tunnel grafts it would have required 4 separate visits and cost at least twice as much.) The PRP worked wonders. The gum tissue is now healthy, and it was worth the journey.
