The Imperative of Periodontal Surgery

When gum disease progresses beyond the early stages, and non-surgical treatments don't yield desired outcomes, periodontal surgery becomes a necessity. It is designed to restore and maintain gum and periodontal health by removing the pockets where bacteria grow and cause further bone destruction. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli offers state-of-the-art periodontal surgical procedures ensuring the longevity of your dental health.

Different Types of Periodontal Surgeries

Based on the severity and type of periodontal disease, various surgical options can be explored:

  • Flap Surgery/Pocket Reduction: Involves lifting the gums back to remove tartar, then repositioning the gums snugly around the tooth.
  • Bone Grafts: Uses fragments of your bone, synthetic bone, or donated bone to replace bone destroyed by gum disease.
  • Soft Tissue Grafts: Reinforces thin gums or fills in areas where gums have receded.
  • Guided Tissue Regeneration: A procedure to stimulate bone and gum tissue growth.
  • Bone Surgery: Smoothens shallow craters caused by bone loss due to advanced periodontal disease.

Dr. Bigdeli will recommend the most suitable surgical option after a comprehensive examination and assessment.

Post-Surgery Care & Recovery

After the surgical procedure, Dr. Bigdeli provides explicit aftercare instructions. This ensures a smooth recovery, reduced risk of infections, and the best outcomes for the surgical intervention.


  • Directly tackles advanced gum diseases preventing further complications.
  • Reduces pocket depths, making oral hygiene easier and more effective.
  • Enhances the appearance of the gum line and teeth.
  • Prevents tooth loss associated with advanced periodontal diseases.
  • Restores a healthy oral environment.
Is periodontal surgery painful?

While the procedure is done under anesthesia to minimize discomfort, some post-operative soreness can be expected. Dr. Bigdeli will prescribe appropriate pain management solutions.

How long is the recovery period after surgery?

It varies depending on the type of surgery and individual healing processes. Typically, patients might require a few days to a couple of weeks for full recovery.

Will I need further treatments post-surgery?

Regular check-ups and maintenance cleanings are crucial after surgery to monitor healing and ensure continued gum health.

How can I avoid the need for periodontal surgery in the future?

Periodontal Maintenance Cleaning

Ensure the longevity of your gum health with periodontal maintenance cleaning at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli offers tailored care to keep periodontal diseases at bay.

What is Periodontal Maintenance Cleaning?

Periodontal maintenance cleaning is a specialized cleaning procedure for patients who have undergone treatment for gum diseases. It goes beyond the realms of standard cleanings, targeting areas susceptible to periodontal disease recurrence. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli prioritizes this preventive approach, ensuring that once treated, your gums remain healthy and resilient against future threats.

Why Regular Maintenance is Crucial

Gum diseases can be recurrent and sneakily progressive. Even after successful periodontal treatments or surgeries, the harmful bacteria can repopulate, leading to relapses. Periodontal maintenance cleaning serves as a safeguard, meticulously addressing these vulnerable areas, ensuring that the gums and bone remain free from detrimental bacterial colonies.

The Procedure at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics

Starting with a comprehensive evaluation of your gum health, Dr. Bigdeli focuses on areas prone to bacterial buildup. The procedure involves careful cleaning above and below the gum line, removing plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria. This tailored cleaning regimen ensures optimal gum health and minimizes the risk of periodontal disease resurgence.


  • Prolonged protection against the recurrence of gum diseases.
  • Consistent monitoring of gum and bone health.
  • Prevention of tooth loss associated with untreated periodontal diseases.
  • Enhanced breath freshness and overall oral hygiene.
  • Tailored cleanings focusing on individual patient needs.
How frequently should I opt for periodontal maintenance cleaning?

Typically, Dr. Bigdeli recommends these cleanings every 3-4 months, but this may vary based on individual gum health conditions

How is it different from regular dental cleaning?

While regular cleanings focus primarily on visible tooth surfaces and slight gumline, periodontal maintenance delves deeper, targeting areas susceptible to periodontal disease recurrence.

If I've had gum disease once, am I at risk of getting it again?

Yes, having gum disease increases your susceptibility. Periodontal maintenance cleaning acts as a preventive measure to minimize this risk.

Can I revert to standard cleanings after a while?

It depends on your oral health status. Dr. Bigdeli will provide guidance based on continuous assessments during your maintenance visits.

The Necessity of Periodontal Cleaning (H3)

Periodontal cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a specialized procedure designed to treat and prevent gum diseases. It goes beyond standard dental cleaning, reaching the area below the gumline to remove plaque and tartar buildup. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli employs a meticulous approach to periodontal cleaning, safeguarding your gums and the foundations of your teeth.

How is Periodontal Cleaning Different? (H3)

While regular cleanings focus on the tooth surface and areas slightly below the gumline, periodontal cleaning dives deeper. It targets the harmful bacteria residing in pockets between the gums and teeth, helping to halt the progression of periodontal diseases. Dr. Bigdeli and her team utilize advanced tools and techniques to ensure the procedure is thorough and comfortable for patients.

The Process at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics (H3)

Starting with a comprehensive examination of your gum health, Dr. Bigdeli identifies areas needing attention. Using specialized tools, plaque and tartar are removed from beneath the gums. Root surfaces are then smoothed to encourage gum reattachment, reducing the risk of further bacterial buildup.


  • Halts the progression of gum diseases.
  • Reduces gum inflammation and bleeding.
  • Prevents bad breath caused by bacterial buildup.
  • Aids in the reattachment of gums to the teeth.
  • Potentially avoids more invasive gum surgeries.
How often should I undergo periodontal cleaning?

Depending on the severity of gum issues, Dr. Bigdeli might recommend it 2-4 times a year, though the exact frequency varies based on individual needs.

Is the procedure painful?

With modern techniques and local anesthesia, most patients experience minimal discomfort. Dr. Bigdeli ensures the process is as pain-free as possible.

How is periodontal cleaning different from regular dental cleaning?

Periodontal cleaning targets deeper pockets of bacterial buildup beneath the gumline, whereas regular dental cleaning focuses on the tooth's surface and marginally below the gums.

What are the signs that I might need a periodontal cleaning?

Persistent bad breath, bleeding gums, gum recession, or loose teeth are common signs. However, a thorough examination is essential to determine the need.

Understanding Deep Teeth Cleaning

Deep teeth cleaning, frequently referred to as scaling and root planing, is an intensive procedure aimed at addressing gum disease and preventing its progression. It targets the elimination of plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria from below the gumline and on the root surfaces. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics prioritizes this proactive approach to nip potential dental complications in the bud.

Why It’s More than Just a Regular Cleaning

While regular dental cleanings focus on the visible parts of teeth and the edge of the gums, deep teeth cleaning delves beneath the surface. It meticulously removes the harmful buildup in deeper pockets of the gums, ensuring a comprehensive cleanliness that regular cleanings can't achieve. Dr. Bigdeli’s seasoned techniques ensure patient comfort and effective results.

Procedure Insights at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics

Upon a detailed assessment of your dental health, Dr. Bigdeli identifies regions of concern. Utilizing specialized equipment, the plaque and tartar beneath the gums are methodically removed. This is followed by planing, where the root surfaces are smoothened, promoting gum adherence and minimizing bacterial reaccumulation.


  • Directly addresses and combats gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.
  • Significantly reduces gum inflammation, bleeding, and discomfort.
  • Enhances breath freshness by eliminating bacteria responsible for bad breath.
  • Promotes healthier gum attachment, reducing pocket depths.
  • Acts as a preventive measure against potential dental surgeries.
How frequently should I consider deep teeth cleaning?

While general recommendations lean towards once or twice a year, Dr. Bigdeli will provide guidance based on your specific dental health status.

Is deep teeth cleaning uncomfortable?

With advanced techniques and possible use of local anesthesia, Dr. Bigdeli ensures that the process is as comfortable and painless as feasible.

How is it different from standard dental cleaning?

Standard dental cleaning targets the visible tooth surfaces, while deep teeth cleaning focuses on removing harmful buildup beneath the gumline and on the tooth roots.

What post-procedure care is recommended?

Mild sensitivity might be experienced, so it's advised to avoid extremely hot or cold foods for a day or two. Regular brushing and flossing, as directed, are crucial.
