Dr. Mahnaz Rashti Provides Sufferers of Periodontal Disease with Effective and Life Changing Dental Implant Treatment

For thousands of Southern Californians who suffer from periodontal disease and tooth decay, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti is the premier care provider in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Calfornia – Gum disease is one of the most prevalent health conditions in the US, posing serious risks, such as loss of teeth, for the millions who suffer from it. 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.

U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for May 13

WASHINGTON, District of Columbia – There are a number of special observances in May, ranging from National Vinegar Month to National Smile Month. But the most intriguing may be the one held today — which is Root Canal Appreciation Day. The idea is that while no one voluntarily chooses to have a root canal — across the country, an estimated 17 million teeth are saved each year by the procedure, which has become common and much less painful than those performed in the past. Of course, many root canals could be avoided if we each took better care of our teeth on a daily basis. As a nation, our total bill for dental services is nearly $100 billion a year. Americans spend an average of $315 annually on their dental care. Profile America is beginning its 14th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
