Periodontal Exam from the Best Dentist in Redlands, CA

Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian uses the latest dental technologies to detect periodontal disease in its earliest stages.

Periodontics is a dental specialization that deals with preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions that attack the gums and jawbone. Periodontists complete additional years of formal training to maintain the function, health, and aesthetics of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth and the jawbone that anchors them in place. Periodontal disease affects roughly 75% of adults and can lead to conditions from mild cases of gum inflammation to infection, and more severe problems such as loss of gums and teeth if not treated properly.

Dr. Tatevossian offers both surgical and non-surgical periodontal treatments and can provide a detailed treatment plan for managing periodontal disease.

About Periodontal Disease

About Periodontal Disease Near Me

Gingivitis is a mild inflammation of the gum. This inflammation is usually the first sign of periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Typical symptoms of this condition, also known as “gum disease,” are red, swollen, painful, or bleeding gums, though in some cases show no symptoms at all.

A Periodontal disease starts with a bacterial infection in the gums from plaque accumulated on teeth. This infection causes irritation, pain, and inflammation that in turn, can cause the jawbone to recede and teeth to become loose. These are some of the reasons why periodontal treatment is necessary.


This is diagnosed when the gums are bleeding, swollen or red around the teeth, causing the jawbone to recede.


The infection usually begins in one area and then creates moderate or advanced gum disease in other areas.

Gum recession can also be caused by heavy brushing with a stiff bristle brush or by badly positioned teeth. Prompt treatment is recommended to avoid further spreading.


When the periodontist lengthens the crown of a tooth by pushing up surrounding soft tissue to show more tooth structure.


This dental technic, usually known as "recontouring," requires the periodontist to correct an uneven gum line. The periodontist has to clear any bacterial infections and periodontitis before treatment.

If you experience bleeding and inflammation of the gums, you may have early signs of periodontal disease. We invite you to call King House Dental Group and schedule a dental examination. Our team of experts can recommend the best suitable treatment for your particular situation to restore your gum, teeth, and jaw to their optimal health.

Periodontal Exams Relevant Information

What to expect?

Our Redlands, CA dental practice offers various treatment options depending on how advanced the periodontal disease is, and we will ensure each patient receives timely and proper care. Usually, antibiotics are given to help alleviate inflammation.

A common treatment used is a nonsurgical procedure known as scaling and root planing. This is performed similar to a deep dental cleaning, beginning with scaling, which removes tarter and plaque from below the gum line, while root planing creates a smoother root and gum surface.

Gum graft surgery, laser gum surgery, pocket reduction, and other regenerative procedures are also available for periodontal disease in the more advanced stages.

About Treatment Aftercare

Periodontal disease is a progressive condition. It is important to maintain healthy dental care regimes to help prevent gum disease. We provide our patients with education and at-home care instructions so that a good oral hygiene routine can be implemented daily.

Dr. Tatevossian may suggest scheduling routine annual check-ups and exams, along with periodontal cleanings twice a year.

What's the Pricing?

Patient’s annual dental exam includes the cost of periodontal examination. The price for treating periodotitis will depend on the severity of the infection and the treatment used. Patients will be given the opportunity to discuss treatment options and cost during consultation.
