Dr. Jeffrey Hsu is a board-certified periodontist in Temple City, CA, who offers advanced gum disease treatment to restore your smile's health and beauty. We are happy to treat patients referred by a general dentist, but a referral is unnecessary to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Hsu.

Crown lengthening is a procedure that a periodontist performs to remove excess gum and/or bone tissue from around a tooth to expose more of its surface.
Sometimes, it’s needed so a dentist can access and treat tooth decay under the gumline. If you have excess gum tissue that shows when you smile (“gummy” smile), crown lengthening can also improve your smile’s aesthetics.
Healthy, beautiful smiles are built on a foundation of healthy gums. If your dentist refers you to a periodontist, it’s because they’re concerned about your gum health and believe you can benefit from the expertise of a specialist.
We offer non-surgical deep cleanings and periodontal pocket reduction surgery to restore your gum health and protect you from tooth loss.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants have transformed the lives of millions by giving them back their smiles and the ability to eat, speak, and share a laugh confidently with friends.
Dr. Jeffrey Hsu recommends dental implants because they are the most successful long-term tooth replacement. Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth and have the potential to last a lifetime when cared for properly.
If you have been considering dental implants to replace missing teeth, we invite you to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Hsu.
Periodontal Pocket Reduction Surgery
When periodontal disease advances, it opens small pockets between your teeth and gums. As the disease progresses, the pockets get deeper, making it impossible to clean them with routine hygiene treatment. This is when your dentist would refer you to a periodontist like Dr. Hsu for pocket reduction surgery.
We understand a referral to a periodontist for surgery is anxiety-producing, but rest assured that your comfort and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. Our priority at Smile Again Periodontics is to create an experience where you feel safe, secure, and confident about your treatment.
Soft Tissue (Gum) Grafting
Periodontal disease can cause your gums to recede, leaving more of the roots of the teeth exposed and making your teeth look longer. Soft tissue grafting covers exposed roots, reduces tooth sensitivity, prevents further gum recession, and restores your healthy, beautiful smile.
Tooth Extraction by a Periodontist
A periodontist is a specialist who has experience in performing comfortable and efficient tooth extractions. If you need a tooth removed due to advanced gum disease or want to get rid of problematic wisdom teeth, call Smile Again Periodontics in Temple City, CA.
