Advanced Gum Disease Treatment, Arestin, Offered by LA Dentist City Dental

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) - Gum disease is silently affecting more than 50 million Americans, most of whom are not seeking treatment. The Los Angeles dentist, City Dental, can now stop periodontitis disease, also known as gum disease, and restore gums back to their once healthy condition by using Arestin, the most advanced level of treatment available.

Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is a very serious disease that can result in tooth loss, but it is generally painless, so patients might not even know they have it. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, consequences of this disease may include permanent tooth loss and higher risk of stroke and heart attack.

The main cause of periodontal disease is bacterial plaque, the sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on teeth. The plaque builds up on and around the teeth, causing the gums to become red and sensitive. This condition is known as gingivitis. It can be reversed if patients follow a daily hygiene routine by properly brushing and flossing and by using antibacterial mouthwash regularly.

"Gum disease affects more than 50% of the population, and people need to be aware of the serious health conditions that it can cause," stated Katherine Galina, DDS, of City Dental (

Untreated gingivitis can advance to periodontitis, causing the gums to separate from the teeth and form pockets (spaces between the teeth and gums). When the bacterial plaque enters into these pockets, the area becomes infected. Although there isn't much pain associated with gum disease, the consequences of this affliction can be just as discomforting, including an unhealthy smile, in which the gums pull back from the teeth, offensive bad breath, gums that become infected and bleed and teeth that become loose, possibly fall out, or have to be removed.

LA dentist, City Dental, offers an Arestin procedure that can cure all of these issues along with other conditions that frequently accompany gum disease. With treatment from this Los Angeles dentist, patients do not suffer pain and their teeth can be restored back to their original healthy state. City Dental also offers cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic fillings to repair the effects of periodontitis disease. Periodontitis leads to bone loss, which leads to teeth falling out prematurely which is why this treatment is so crucial.

"The Arestin treatment can restore teeth and gums to their original healthy state with relatively no pain and can also cure the embarrassing issue of bad breath that tends to accompany gum disease," says Dr. Galina.
