Dr. Ramin Assili, dentist in LA, announces that he has added the use of salivary DNA tests to gum disease treatment options. With the extra information provided by a set of two molecular tests, Dr. Assili can personalize treatment options to address gum disease in individuals. MyPerioID and MyPerioPath tests are performed using saliva for the comfort and convenience of patients. Populations of 11 types of bad oral bacteria are measured in the process to gauge the nature and extent of gum disease cases. With MyPerioID, Dr. Assili can identify DNA changes that have been linked to chronic gum disease.

MyPerioID and MyPerioPath were created by OralDNA Labs Inc., a division of Access Genetics, which provides specialty clinical tests to dental offices. The adoption of this new technology by Dr. Assili will help maximize the effectiveness of periodontal disease treatments. At present, more than half of American adults suffer from gum disease, and advanced periodontitis can lead to serious infections and tooth loss. A variety of systemic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, have also been linked to diseased gums. This means that this new testing can have protective effects on both oral and overall health among dental patients.

Patients can visit Dr. Ramin Assili for a host of treatments to address gum disease and other conditions. Periodontal treatments from Dr. Assili include deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, and gum flap surgery. Several types of restorations are offered, such as tooth-colored fillings, root canal treatment, and crowns. Cosmetic options include veneers, teeth whitening, and smile makeover. Patients can also receive orthodontics, such as Invisalign and lingual braces, and sleep apnea treatment.

East Los Angeles dentist Dr. Ramin Assili attended California State University, Northridge, for his B.S. in Biochemistry before graduating from UCLA School of Dentistry with his DDS. During his career, Dr. Assili has also completed postgraduate training at the Misch Implant Institute and has become a fellow at the International College of Implantologists. After almost 20 years as a dentist, Dr. Assili is highly experienced in a full range of advanced dental procedures and is a reputable member of several organizations in his profession.
