TORRANCE, Calif. (PRWEB) November 19, 2018
A trusted periodontist in Torrance, CA, Dr. Arta Farahmand expands her skillset and experience at the 104th Annual American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) meeting. Traveling to Vancouver, BC for this four-day event, Dr. Farahmand understands how critical continuing education (CE) is in offering minimally invasive and leading-edge periodontal care to her patients. Already skilled in placing dental implants, treating gum disease and ensuring proper root coverage and bone regeneration around natural teeth and dental implants, Dr. Farahmand is excited to see her practice take another step forward in truly exceptional care.
The AAP is comprised of over 8,000 clinicians who specialize in gum disease treatment, dental implant placement and cosmetic periodontal care. Founded in 1914, this organization has a legacy of discovering and developing the latest advancements in periodontology, transforming the field into what it is today.
A major development in periodontology was truly unveiled during this year’s convention: the new classification of periodontal health and diseases and dental implant disease model. Instead of a single staging model, a multi-dimensional staging and grading framework is bringing the gum disease diagnosis process closer to a medical model. Also discussed for the first time was the new classification of peri-implantitis, or the infection that occurs around a dental implant.
As greater research and understandings emerge, the AAP annual meeting gathers leading periodontists, like Dr. Farahmand, to one collaborative stage. Already an active member of the AAP, Dr. Farahmand attended courses during this conference that continue to reshape what she can offer for gum disease therapy, dental implants and other periodontal solutions.
One area in particular that she appreciated was in developing bone grafting and gum recession research. Dr. Farahmand expands, “I strive more than anything to improve the regeneration of bone and soft tissue. Whether around natural teeth and dental implants that have experienced loss due to anatomical deficiencies or disease, or in sites in need of preparation before dental implant placement.” Receding gums can expose the tooth root leaving it susceptible to gum disease and tooth loss. In an effort to avoid the loss of a natural tooth or dental implant, Dr. Farahmand offers soft tissue and bone regeneration treatments to halt gum recession and bone loss and achieve a lasting, healthy smile.
An active member of numerous dental organizations beyond the AAP, she is a past and current President of the California Society of Periodontists. Under her presidency, the Governor of California Recognized the Month of March as Gum Disease Awareness Month. An advanced practice, Dr. Farahmand’s team offers patient-centered and precise care using modern technology. This technology includes Cone Beam CT imaging for computer-guided dental implant placement, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser for LANAP® gum disease therapy and a dental microscope for minimally invasive periodontal care.
