Many people do not realize the important role that their gums play in their oral health. Yes, they do keep the teeth in place.

Our office also has a periodontist on staff. Periodontics is concerned with health of the soft tissues of the mouth, specifically the gums. In periodontics, the doctor is focused on preventing, diagnosing and treating gum disease. However, periodontics is also a part of the dental implant placing process. Gum disease treatments can be relatively simple or somewhat more complex depending on the stage the disease has reached. In the early stages, gum disease is known as gingivitis but can develop into a more serious condition known as periodontitis.
One way that Dr. Homa H. Zadeh can improve the health of your gums and address gum recession is though the VISTA approach in conjunction with a soft tissue or bone graft. This is a non-invasive treatment method designed to assist grafting treatments, improve the amount and health of soft tissues and speed the healing process.
The treatments at our office are designed to give you the look you want and promote the oral health you need and deserve. Dr. Zadeh has pioneered important periodontal treatments, and combines his skill and expertise with the latest dental technology to bring out the best in your smile.
