Periodontal Facts:

  • Periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults 35 and over.
  • Each person's set of teeth is unique - much like their fingerprints - even in identical twins.
  • Over the last 10 years, the proportion of people age 60 who've lost all their teeth has decreased from 33% to 25%
  • Research proves that up to 30% of the population may be genetically susceptible to gum disease. Despite aggressive oral care habits, these people may be six times more likely to develop periodontal disease.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Best Periodontist ever! I actually found Dr. Kao online. I was not happy with the treatment plan from the other dentist I had consulted with and was looking for a second opinion.

Jamie R. Los Angeles, CA.

I needed a periodontist. The reasons why aren't important. But I am willing to give credence to Dr. Kao's professionalism and competence. I recommend him without hesitation or condition. His staff is polite, professional, and even funny, too.

Edward I.

Dr. Kao runs a top notch practice. Both him and his staff make you feel very comfortable, and his work is exceptional. I went to several periodontists before arriving at Dr. Kao's. He has an in-depth knowledge of the latest techniques and technologies but unlike other dentists, he will recommend the best treatment, not just the one that costs the most.

Shams K.

It is so hard these days to find a business or person that you can truly rely on. So many no longer care about delivering professional services that are worth it. Dr. Kao has gone above and beyond my expectations as a doctor, a dentist, a businessman, and a person. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. He and his staff are true professionals. I am relieved to know that my family, friends, and I have a great team looking out for our best interests.

Nicole C.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease (gum disease) take on many different forms but are usually a result of a coalescence of bacterial plaque biofilm accumulation of the gingiva (gum) and teeth, combined with host immuno-inflammatory mechanisms and other risk factors which lead to the destruction of the supporting bone around natural teeth. It is important to note that periodontal disease is usually painless and can go undetected until it's too late. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the bone and soft tissue surrounding the teeth.
