At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy, we are proud to offer treatments utilizing cutting-edge technology to treat our patients in West Hollywood. Dr. Aalam is proud to serve as the first periodontist in the U.S. to be trained in and perform Advanced PRF treatments with the RejuvaGum Lift™ procedure. The innovative procedure eliminates the need for gum grafting by developing Platelet Rich Fibrin as an innovative and technologically advanced method of treating gum recession in West Hollywood.
Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria that builds up in the mouth and affects the gums. The mildest form of periodontal disease begins as gingivitis. Gingivitis causes an inflammation of the gums, sensitivity, and bleeding when brushing. Gingivitis treatment in West Hollywood is available, and if diagnosed early on, it can even be reversed. If you experience symptoms of gum disease, it is important to see a periodontist in West Hollywood to diagnose and treat periodontal disease before it spreads. If left untreated, periodontal disease can spread below the gum line, causing the gum tissue to pull away from the teeth and creating periodontal pockets. When bacteria builds up within these pockets, it will wear away the gum tissue, causing gum recession, and will eventually reach the supporting bone and cause bone loss.
Gum recession is most commonly caused by untreated periodontal disease that causes the gum tissue to wear away, exposing the tooth roots. When the tooth roots become exposed, the aesthetics of one’s smile become compromised and patient’s oral health is at risk. Gum recession causes teeth to appear longer, making many self-conscious about smiling, and completely lowering their self-esteem and confidence. Additionally, not only are patients unhappy with the appearance of their smile, but gum recession also increases the risk of infection and tooth decay because the roots are exposed, also jeopardizing their oral health. Gum recession also causes sensitivity to hot and cold, making it uncomfortable and sometimes painful for patients to eat.
The most common gum recession treatment in West Hollywood is a gum graft procedure, where a West Hollywood periodontist harvests gum tissue from another part of the patient’s mouth, most commonly the roof of the mouth, and grafts it to the exposed area to cover the tooth roots. However when utilizing Platelet Rich Fibrin in oral surgery, patients can now avoid gum grafting altogether. The RejuvaGum Lift™ is a graftless gum recession treatment in West Hollywood, that regenerates lost tissue utilizing Advanced-Platelet Rich Fibrin developed from a patient’s own blood. This innovative method works by taking a sample of the patient’s blood, and spinning it in a centrifuge, which separates the blood into 3 components: plasma, white blood cells and platelets, which include regenerative growth factors, such as platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF). The PRF is a clot like substance that is composed of platelets, fibrin and white blood cells that were developed in the centrifuge, and is inserted into the gums above the recession to regenerate the lost tissue, restore patients’ oral health and create a healthy, even gum line.
The use of Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin regenerates lost gum tissue, increases the body’s natural healing abilities and decreases the risk of infection. Using PRF in periodontology is an innovative way to restore and heal gum tissue in a number of oral procedures including gum grafts, open sockets and dental implants in West Hollywood.

WHAT OUR WEST HOLLYWOOD PATIENTS ARE SAYING…
Very very pleased with my experience here. Dr. Aalam performed a gum graft on my lower gums and the results were quite perfect. Every person who works in this office is warm, friendly and professional, I was always seen on time and visits were very quick and painless.
I went here for two gum grafts and they came out perfectly! Dr. Aalam was very attentive to my questions and concerns and even gave me his personal cell number in case I had additional questions. The procedure and recovery went smoothly, the staff is very friendly and professional – really great experience overall.
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.
