Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2016 -- The periodontists at the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy have first-hand experience diagnosing and treating the harmful effects of gum disease and periodontitis. From recessed gums to tooth decay and tooth loss, poor oral health can significantly impact a person's quality of life. According to a May 19 Bel Marra Health article regarding a study conducted by researchers at the University of Southampton and King’s College London, gum disease may be connected to other dangerous conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
“There are numerous studies that have come out in recent years that link oral health with other serious health conditions, such as heart disease,” said board-certified periodontist Alexandre-Amir Aalam. “As far as the connection between gum disease and dementia, it isn't surprising. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can get into the bloodstream and cause issues in other areas of the body, including the brain.”

A study conducted by researchers at the University of Southampton, UK determined that gum disease and other forms of infections, such as autoimmune disorders and chest infections can contribute to the faster progression of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. According to the study, patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease and periodontitis experienced a faster decline in cognitive ability than those without any form of gum disease.
“The body responds to infections by causing inflammation in the effort to destroy the harmful bacteria or viruses. Unfortunately, chronic inflammation, even on a low grade level as with gum disease can damage healthy tissue,” added Dr. Alina Krivitsky of the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy. “This is why it's so important to combat gum disease and prevent it from spreading.”
The periodontists at the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy in Brentwood, CA offer a revolutionary treatment known as RejuvaGum Lift ™, which uses advanced-platelet rich fibrin to restore gums that have receded as a result of gingivitis or gum disease.

“RejuvaGum Lift is highly effective because it uses a patients own tissue-building platelets to heal and regenerate areas of the gums that have been damaged,” said Dr. Aalam. “Treating these gum pockets not only helps create a beautiful, healthy smile, but it can also helps teeth and gums be stronger and better protected.”
Dr. Alexandre-Amir Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are board certified Brentwood periodontists specializing in dental implants and gum and tissue diseases. They opened the CENTER, a periodontal office focused on providing patients with excellent and skilled care at affordable prices, with the goal of restoring oral health and aesthetic appearance.
