Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is an infection that causes bone loss around teeth, and if left untreated leads to loss of teeth. Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants, and are trained extensively in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. In California we are fortunate to have a large number of good general dental practitioners and dental.. specialists. The following are a few of the reasons why referring dentists and patients choose our office for periodontal treatment: The Doctor is a competent board certified periodontist.Our digital intra-oral and panoramic x-ray machines allow state of the art diagnostics with minimal exposure to radiation. An experienced Registered Nurse is present full time in the office; an important asset for a practice where surgical and sedation procedures are common.
Care during procedures is gentle and friendly. The follow-up routine is thorough; in addition to post-operative appointments, the first cleaning and oral hygiene instructions are done by the periodontist. Patients are sent back to the referring Doctor's office for maintenance and general dental care, and maintenance cleaning appointments are alternated between their office and ours. Our Doctor is easily accessible; office, cell and residence telephone numbers are given to all patients. Most insurance plans are accepted. Treatment plans are customized according to treatment priorities, and are sensitive to financial considerations.
We have been seeing Dr. Onea for 10 years. He has literally saved my mouth. I came the first time with severe gum disease. The TLC I received from his staff was outstanding. His advice to extract an "out of place" tooth - to allow the natural line up of teeth was remarkable. We have sent several people to their office. They are the best!! The ladies at the front always make it a pleasure to enter this office.
