COSMETIC PERIODONTAL TREATMENTS
An Aesthetic & Medical Solution To Missing Teeth
Beverly Hills periodontists Dr. Alexandre Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are dedicated to helping their patients feel confident and comfortable, not only when they smile but also as they go about their daily lives.
In addition to their many aesthetic advantages, dental implants offer a number of benefits for your oral health. Artificial teeth allow for the replacement of one or more teeth without affecting the bordering teeth. Additionally, implants can support a bridge and eliminate the need for removable partial dentures. Because dental implants are easier to brush and keep clean than dentures or bridges, they may reduce your risk of developing gum disease in the future. Finally, these can help preserve the integrity of your mouth and face by supporting gum and jawbone structure.
At the CENTER, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky thoroughly evaluate each patient to determine the best dental implant procedure. When you schedule a consultation at our Brentwood-area office, we can help determine the best treatment for you.
A dental implant looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth without sacrificing the health of the neighboring teeth (for example, a tooth-supported bridge will require the grinding of two neighboring teeth to fit three crowns splinted together). Heavy grinding might require the need of root canals on the abutment teeth, and teeth splinting makes it difficult to for patients in Los Angeles to floss and clean, heightening the chances of gum disease or decay.
With a dental implant, the bone is better preserved because the root is replaced. A patient’s flossing capability is maintained since the missing tooth is replaced with a single implant/crown. More importantly, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky in Beverly Hills will not harm the neighboring teeth by grinding them down and attaching crowns to them. The true value of a single tooth implant is the preservation of the natural dentition.
If you’re missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them and restore your confidence. When placing multiple dental implants, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky in Los Angeles will replace a patient’s lost teeth and the roots, giving patients an aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking smile. Dental implants have several advantages over other teeth replacement options such as removable partial dentures. Not only do multiple implants look natural and function like real teeth, but they are permanent, meaning that the prosthesis never comes out of your mouth. You eat, sleep and function the same way as if you have your own natural teeth.
In addition, because implant-supported bridges will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved, offering better long-term results in Beverly Hills. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, which keeps the bone healthy and provides results that are beautiful, functional, and comfortable.
Fully Edentulous Patients
Dental implants offer countless benefits for patients who are missing teeth or require dentures. They will increase your willingness to show off your smile. Patients quickly notice after receiving artificial teeth how beautiful their smiles are and how attractive their gums now appear. Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky specialize in creating natural-looking dental implants in Los Angeles that match the look and feel of your actual teeth. Many patients can not even tell the difference between their implants and original teeth. Additionally, implants improve oral comfort and speech in a way that traditional dentures do not. As a result, you will likely feel increased self-confidence when smiling or speaking at work or social occasions.
Tooth Replacement Procedure
Dental implants are fused to the bone and offer more stability than traditional bridges and dentures. During the procedure, the implant will be inserted into the jaw to replace the tooth root. While the implant heals, your periodontist will place a temporary crown until your beautiful, brand-new custom implant is ready for permanent placement.
Many patients sense greater security with artificial teeth than other procedures because they are secured into the jaw. In order to qualify for this procedure, you must have a set of healthy gums and enough bone to support the dental implant.
