Periodontal Disease: If the periodontal disease has advanced, more extensive treatment will be required to restore the mouth, teeth, and gums to a healthy condition. If you are concerned about the treatment and/or prevention of periodontal disease, be sure to make an appointment with our Pasadena periodontist, Dr. Eric Cho.

Periodontal Disease >>

Gum Recession: Receding gums are an indication of serious gum disease. As the gums recede, the tooth roots are revealed. The roots of the teeth are very susceptible to decay, and if the gums are receding, it is critical that the condition is treated rapidly.

Gum Grafting: Advanced periodontics has brought new treatments in gum restoration, including gum grafting. If your gums have receded to the point in which the roots have been exposed, gum grafting may be part of your treatment plan.

Gum Grafting >>

Bone Grafting: Gum disease can eventually lead to loss of bone in the jaw. Bone grafting is a technique that restores jaw bone volume and encourages natural bone growth.

Crown Lengthening: For some patients, a crown lengthening procedure will be part of a custom-tailored treatment plan developed to resolve a dental problem. This procedure is performed to improve gum tissue health.

Crown Lengthening >>

Scaling & Root Planing: It may be necessary for a patient to have scaling and root planing as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. This could be advised as a preventative treatment to ward off gum disease, or used to help treat a case of periodontal disease.

Scaling & Root Planing >>

Pinhole Tissue Graft Procedure: While gum grafting has been performed for years, the procedure required many appointments, involved pain and swelling, and could be hard on a patient. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) is far less invasive and does not involve the grafting tissue, scalpels, surgical wounds or stitches.

Other Periodontic Procedures: Gum disease is a widespread problem, affecting nearly half of adults ages 30 and older in the U.S. Treatment can involve a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures, depending on the nature and severity of the problem. Our periodontist in Pasadena is experienced and ready to help treat our patients in a variety of gum-related procedures, no matter how common or rare the case is.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Due to the increased health concerns regarding COVID-19, we are now scheduling Virtual Consultations.

The virtual consultation can help answer questions, provide guidance and help ease your mind. This is an area recently approved by the American Dental Association. During this process you become a patient of our dental practice by filling out new patient forms. This process is to familiarize the doctor with your Medical and Dental history which will be reviewed before your virtual appointment. The insurance portion will be used for billing purposes.

Depending on your needs you can schedule for one of the two types of consultation


1. Limited Visual Consultation: Limited to one tooth or one area of concern. (10minutes)

2. General Visual Consultation: Answers to your questions to more than one area of concern. (20 minutes)

What we need from you prior to your Consultation time:

1. X-rays that you have from previous dentists up to five years old.

2. Pictures of the area taken by your smart phone from different angles. Take as many from different views as possible. Including pictures of your smile and bite. We have found using your flash on your phone and focusing will help.
