What We Offer


Scripps Ranch Area Gum Disease and Gingivitis Periodontist

Gum disease occurs most frequently when trapped bacteria gets caught in the gums and may lead to periodontitis, bone loss in the mouth or even infection that affects the patient's heart. That's why Scripps Ranch area gingivitis periodontist Dr. Sigafoos looks for early signs of periodontal disease such as bad breath, loose teeth, bleeding gums, and pockets (extra space in between the tooth and the gum).

There's no such thing as gum disease that can be ignored. Even if there are few symptoms in the beginning, the greater concern is the long-term effect that gum disease can have on your mouth and body. That's why at LaJolla Periodontics our caring attitude and years of experience can literally save your beautiful smile - and perhaps even your life!

Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (855) 563-7049 and Dr. Gary Sigafoos will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.

Take Advantage of Your Dental Insurance

If you and your family have dental insurance, you should take a couple of minutes to see what it offers. Many plans have a 'use it or lose it' provision that provides a certain level of care per calendar year.

Take advantage of it and save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding costly procedures that result from poor dental habits. Our friendly staff at LaJolla Periodontics will be happy to answer all your dental insurance questions. Just give us a call at (855) 563-7049.

Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?

Millions of adults struggle with hypersensitive teeth, meaning they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, very sugary or acidic foods and drinks and vigorous tooth brushing. Above the gum line, dentin is protected with a coating of enamel. Unfortunately, as enamel is worn away or decayed, dentin becomes exposed and receptive to sensations that cause painful nerve responses.

This can also occur as the result of receding gums, a common symptom of gum disease. If your teeth are sensitive, please call LaJolla Periodontics today at (855) 563-7049 to schedule a consultation.
