Gum disease can create large spaces between your gum tissue and teeth, but our periodontist at Farshid Ariz D.M.D. can close these gaps with a pocket reduction surgery. When we shrink these periodontal pockets, then they do not trap the food and plaque, which can harm your oral health. Call Dr. Farshid Ariz if you need to receive a pocket reduction surgery in West Los Angeles, California.
