The prevention of dental diseases such as periodontitis (gum disease) requires taking an active stance to maintain oral health on a daily basis.

Rifkin Raanan dentists have consistently seen that patients who have the healthiest, brightest smiles are those that follow dental advice, such as brushing teeth every morning and evening, abstaining from smoking, practicing a healthy diet that avoids excessively sugary food and drinks, daily flossing, and coming in for twice-yearly dental visits that include an oral exam as well as regular teeth cleanings. Taking these steps and incorporating them into your oral health care plan helps preserve a healthy smile for life.

At Rifkin Raanan Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand that while these steps are rather simple, life can become busy — and oral health sometimes, unfortunately, gets pushed aside. That’s okay. Our premier dental team is here to help correct dental issues patients across the Beverly Hills area and beyond are experiencing with customized dental health care that restores a healthy smile when life gets in the way.


Real prevention of tooth loss and gum decay starts with a cooperative effort between dentist and patient. Working in tandem, Rifkin Raanan helps patients avoid costly and unexpected dental work, unnecessary pain from untreated dental issues, and achieve a bright, healthy smile that makes you feel great about yourself. At our practice periodontal maintenance is essential for patients that have a history of gum infections resulting from improper oral care.



Periodontitis is an ongoing infection that develops in tiny pockets between the teeth and gum line. When the condition is left untreated, periodontitis continues to progress over time.

Without swift periodontitis treatment, usually involving scaling and root planing and treatment for the bacteria, at the dentist, it is only a matter of time before a patient loses teeth. In severe periodontitis, the jaw bone is affected. Bone loss is permanent, and may not be able to be restored. Gum disease is also linked to heart disease, COPD, diabetes, inflammatory diseases, and may cause issues during pregnancy in women.

Therefore, you must come in for a dental exam and periodontal cleaning as soon as possible.

Periodontal maintenance cleanings involve a careful inspection and a thorough cleaning to prevent gum disease. This includes:

  • Inspection: Teeth x-ray & visual examination of the mouth.
  • Supragingival cleaning: Dental scaling tools are used to clean the area of teeth that is visible above the gum line, freeing the teeth of plaque building and calculus on the upper portion of the teeth.
  • Subgingival cleaning: Calculus is removed along and under the gumline.
  • Scaling and Root planing: The root of the tooth is gently smoothed to remove any remaining bacteria that persists.
