Gum Treatments and Services in Santa Monica


Santa Monica Periodontics & Implant Surgery provides specialized care for gum, jaw, and overall tooth health. Periodontal (gum) disease is a common issue among all ages, which is why we concentrate on cleanings and therapies designed to eradicate or treat gum disease before it becomes a problem. Periodontal disease is a progressive disease ranging from gum inflammation to significant conditions that result in damage to the gums and bone, and it is the leading cause of tooth loss.

Some of our popular services include:  



Because we take a comprehensive approach to treating our patients, we don’t just look at the teeth but instead look at the overall health of the mouth. Bacterial infection can develop unnoticed, but with our help this “invisible” threat can be safely removed.



What to Expect from a Periodontist


The doctors and staff of Santa Monica Periodontics & Implant Surgery believe healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of good health. Our educated professionals are committed to providing long-lasting treatments to prevent gum disease, and effectively treat gum health issues. We always treat the patient, not just the gums, and we will never suggest or perform unnecessary procedures.

We also want our patients to enjoy their time with us, so we focus on creating a warm and welcoming environment through delivering on-time appointments, prompt service, and open communication. Dr. Greenberg, Dr. Raschkovsky and staff keep current with technological advancements and trends, ensuring our patients receive only the best care. A customized treatment plan designed with the patient's needs in mind is established during consultations, so that all parties are aware of any problems, as well as all available solutions. And since periodontists manage the soft tissue, our patients experience only gentle and compassionate care whether they are receiving non-surgical therapies or are having dental implants placed.

We are proud of the relationships we have with our established patients – please check out our patient reviews  and discover for yourself what people are saying about our practice!

Learn More About Santa Monica Implant DentistryReplace Your Missing or Damaged Teeth Dental implants are the state-of the-art technique for replacing missing teeth. Before we had dental implants, teeth were replaced with fixed bridges or removable partials (prostheses). A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root which is attached to the jaw bone. Eventually, a replacement tooth or bridge will be firmly fixed to this root, restoring complete function to the tooth. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to...

The term “periodontal” means “around the tooth.”  Periodontal disease (also known as periodontitis and gum disease) is a common inflammatory condition that affects the supporting and surrounding soft tissues of the tooth, eventually affecting the jawbone itself in the disease’s most advanced stages. Periodontal disease is most often preceded by gingivitis which is a bacterial infection of the gum tissue.  A bacterial infection affects the gums when the toxins contained in plaque begin to irritate and inflame the gum tissues.  Once this...

Oral Cancer Exam from Santa Monica Periodontics & Implant SurgeryAccording to research conducted by the American Cancer Society, more than 30,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year.  More than 7,000 of these cases result in the death of the patient.  The good news is that oral cancer can easily be diagnosed with an annual oral cancer exam, and effectively treated when caught in its earliest stages. Oral cancer is a pathologic process which begins with an asymptomatic stage during which the usual cancer signs may not be readily...

Periodontal Scaling & Root PlaningThe objective of scaling and root planing is to remove etiologic agents which cause inflammation to the gingival (gum) tissue and surrounding bone.  Common etiologic agents removed by this conventional periodontal therapy include dental plaque and tartar (calculus). These non-surgical procedures which completely cleanse the periodontium, work very effectively for individuals suffering from gingivitis (mild gum inflammation) and moderate periodontal disease. Reasons for scaling and root planing ...

Crown lengthening is generally performed to improve the health of the gum tissue or to prepare the mouth for restorative or cosmetic procedures.  In addition, crown lengthening procedures can also be used to correct a “gummy” smile, where teeth are covered with excess gum tissue.  Crown lengthening exposes more of the natural tooth by reshaping or recontouring bone and gum tissue.  This treatment can be performed on a single tooth, many teeth, or the entire gum line, exposing an aesthetically pleasing smile.  Reasons for crown lengthening ...
