Dr. Rahmat Barkordar keeps his patients healthy and happy with advanced training in periodontics and endodontics.
BELMONT, CA, October 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Periodontics involve the specialized treatment of gum disease. Gum diseases are caused by bacterial infection of the gum tissue, usually at the gum line. While a general dentist can treat minor cases of gum disease, periodontists such as Dr. Rahmat Barkordar specialize in diagnosing and treating gum disease and related conditions. If left untreated, gum disease can affect the bone under gums, cause tooth loss and compromise the immune system.
"If you have gum disease, your body is working very hard to keep the infection from getting worse," said Dr. Barkordar, Belmont periodontist. "This makes it easier to get sick, because your immune system is busy working on the infection in your mouth."
As a periodontist, Dr. Barkordar has received advanced training in treating gum disease and related complications such as tooth loss. This includes specialized training in dental implants. Along with specialized study, periodontists are required to complete three additional years of education after dental school. Other related services include scaling and root planing and root debridement.
"A number of things determine whether or not you will develop gum disease or an advanced gum infection, from stress and genetics to diabetes and pregnancy," said Dr. Barkordar. "I want to treat my patients' teeth and gums efficiently and effectively to avoid complications associated with advanced infections. Nobody wants to lose a tooth."
Although a specialist, Dr. Barkordar offers comprehensive general dentistry to his patients to maintain their healthy, bright smiles. This includes routine cleanings and cavity fillings. Dr. Barkordar is also an Endodontist. Endodontists have advanced training in gum treatments and root canal therapy.
