Expert restorative dentist Kourosh Maddahi has teamed with world-class periodontist Kamini Kapoor to provide complete and accurate gum evaluation and treatment.
Gum disease is a highly prevalent dental problem today. Gum disease can occur in two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is a milder, more easily handled disease, and it only affects the gums. Periodontitis is more severe, and can lead to major complications in the mouth. Both of these diseases occur below the gum line in a shallow, v-shaped crevice called the sulcus. As the sulcus becomes more diseased, the crevice grows, and the gums recede lower on the tooth.
