People from all types of socio-economic backgrounds fall victim to periodontal disease, and studies have shown a strong correlation between periodontal (gum) health and overall physiological health, with regards to the heart, cholesterol levels, and brain function. Often, people who seek treatment for the symptoms they're experiencing do so when it's too late, and require the care of a periodontist, a dentist specializing in the structure of the gums and teeth. Periodontitis is often regarded as the "silent killer" because, most of the time, there is no pain or discomfort until irreversible damage to the gums has been done. Individuals who have family members who have lost teeth or developed gum disease are significantly more disposed to develop it themselves, which is why undergoing routine checkups with a periodontist is a valuable preventative measure. Recent attention has been drawn towards Dr. Mahnaz Rashti, a Los Angeles periodontist whose extensive knowledge and adeptness in the field of periodontology has allowed her to consistently provide life-changing results for her patients, many of whom exhibit severe and significant progression of gum disease.
