Periodontal disease happens when your gums and jawbone are infected. Some patients don’t even know they suffer from periodontal disease until they see a dentist. Our offices in North Hollywood and Montebello are experts in treating periodontal disease using the below methods:

  1. Gum Graft Surgery is performed when the gum line recedes down to the root of a tooth, making the tooth appear longer than normal. Gum recession is a consequence of gum disease that can radically change the appearance of your smile. The procedure covers the recessed area by surgically replacing the gum with new tissue. Gum grafting can be performed on one or more teeth to even out the gum line.
  2. Some people will delay seeking periodontal treatment because of the fear of surgery. Before Laser Surgery, a periodontics specialist would ordinarily treat gum disease by cutting the gum tissue, removing the bacteria and closing the wound with stitches, which usually has a recovery time of about four weeks. Laser gum surgery is very effective because you only need two appointments for two hours each. With Laser Surgery, there is minimal bleeding, less sensitivity and a lower risk of infection.
  3. Scaling and root planing removes plaque that has been left on the teeth and hardened over time. The bacteria can irritate the gums and cause them to bleed when you brush your teeth or eat certain foods. Scaling and root planing cleans between the gums and teeth down to the roots. A local anesthetic is needed to numb your gums and the roots of your teeth. An ultrasonic tool is used and antibiotic fibers are placed into the pockets between your teeth and gums, which will help prevent infection.
  4. Dental Crown Lengthening exposes more of your teeth, and sculpts your gum line to correct what is diagnosed as a “gummy smile.” Dental crown lengthening removes gum tissue, bone or both to uncover more of the tooth’s structure.
  5. Root surface debridement is a procedure that involves more than just your root’s surface. It also includes the pocket space, the pocket wall, and underlying gum tissue. The emphasis of this treatment is to control the bacterial infection rather than just removing it.

"Great Dentist, Great Staff. At 57 years-old, I've had several root canals, crowns, bridges, fillings, and extractions from many dentists, some who even advertise on radio. Having tooth-pain and not willing to wait 3 weeks for my regular dentist, I went to Dr. Julius in Montebello. I got an appointment the next day and two days later had major dental work on several of my teeth. (I just got home.) I had work done by Dr. Julius and 2 other dental specialists, also dealing with 2 other people of the excellent office staff there. Dentistry is both a preffession and a busines. Or is going to a restaurant only about the chef, and not the service? They didn't serve me food. They took care of my sh*t. Each and every one of them, all seeking the same outcome: to help me. Dr. Julius could advertise on radio, with higher prices. Maybe even on TV. I watched the finals of 'America's Got Talent' last night. Unfortunately, there were no dental offices on display. When it comes to dentistry and my teeth, I know talent. I watched the winners today."

"After looking for a new dentist. I settle for PDG as was greeted very nicely and the front receptionist was very sweet. The dentist & his asst. were very pleasant. I'll be staying for all my future dental visits and I can't wait to see how my new smile turns out. I really recommend this place to anybody who is a first time patients. Excellent service and reasonable prices, and cleans establishment, very professional but friendly as well."

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."

"High Quality, Professional, Trustworthy. Going to the dentist usually makes people nervous, but the atmosphere here is so lighthearted and relaxing. You're definitely in good hands and won't have to worry about anything. Dr. Julius is very interactive, kind, and mindful of your comfort level at all times and it's so relieving to know that she knows what she's doing. My best dental experience by far :)"
