Comprehensive Care for Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Treatments

At Perio Implant Health Professionals, we address periodontal disease with precision and care. Our treatments focus on halting the progression of gum disease, encompassing deep cleaning procedures like scaling and root planing, along with advanced techniques for bone and tissue regeneration. Our goal is to restore your dental health and maintain your natural smile.

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Cosmetic periodontal surgery at our Los Angeles office is designed to improve your smile's aesthetic and your oral health. Procedures like crown lengthening, gum grafting, and bone grafting are expertly performed by our specialists to cover exposed roots, even out gum lines, and enhance overall oral appearance, ensuring results that blend seamlessly with your natural dentition.

Dental Implants

Our dental implant solutions offer a cutting-edge alternative to traditional dentures. We create a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth using titanium posts fused to the jawbone. This technique not only restores the full function and appearance of your natural teeth but also preserves facial structure, providing a long-term solution to tooth loss.


A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in:

  1. Saving your teeth by the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease.
  2. Creating the foundation for, the placement of and maintenance of dental implants.
  3. Reducing your risk for systemic disease (heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, to name a few).

Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.

The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school.

By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Rodriguez, Dr. Matoska, Dr. Otomo-Corgel and Dr. Ahn can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.


Five-Star Reviews


Perio Implant Health Professionals is proud to serve our community in Los Angeles, CA, with integrity, passion, and kindness. See what our patients have to say about us.
I went in today for a consultation and had a great experience. I am terrified of going to the dentist but Dr. Rodriguez was kind and patient with me while I had a mini breakdown. His assistants Danny and Mariano were also very kind. I have my surgery appointment in August and although I am nervous, I know I'll be in good hands.

I met Dr Joan Otomo-Corgel while bringing my client to see her. While there I showed her my front gums that had amalgam leaking from very old post & core with crowns & multiple bone graft procedures.  My dentist sent my X-rays to her office and she examined my whole mouth to advise me & my dentist what she suggests as treatment options. Meeting Dr. Otomo- Corgel gave me great peace of mind about next steps. Once that part of my mouth is tackled, I would definitely come back for an implant consultation in another part of my mouth!  Her assistant Marcello was very welcoming & thorough with my intake & exam. What a blessing!

Dr. Otomo is a caring and highly skilled periodontist.  I've suffered from chronic gum inflammation for years, but have seen significant improvement since I began seeing her.  She's active in the research aspects of her field and knowledgeable of the latest treatments. Her sense of humor is a nice bonus.
