Gum Disease Treatment

A West Los Angeles periodontist specializes in dental implantology, and understanding the intricacies of the teeth, gums and supporting structures. Dental implants are the ideal way to permanently replace missing or damaged teeth. Instead of opting for dentures or a dental flipper, a dental implant can permanently restore functionality and comfort to your every day life. They eliminate the inconvenience associated with dentures, as well as the messy gels, soaks and unpleasant odors of temporary teeth replacements. A dental implant will look, feel and function just like a permanent tooth, and is even color matched to seamlessly blend with your smile. Dental implants allow patients to smile with confidence, gives them a second chance at maintaining optimal oral health, and restores a sense of comfort and ease in each patient’s life.

The dental implant process is not complex when performed by a board certified periodontist in West Los Angeles. Because a periodontist is an expert in placing dental implants in West Los Angeles, it is important that you receive treatment from an experienced, knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky are both Diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology and of the American Board of Oral Implantology, and are committed to providing patients with effective periodontal care and delivering life changing results. 


The dental implant process begins with a consultation, where a West Los Angeles periodontist will thoroughly examine the patient to understand their unique case and specific needs. Our West Los Angeles periodontists will formulate a treatment plan specifically geared towards providing each patient with the best possible outcome, while ensuring they receive a comfortable treatment and post operative experience. During the consultation our West Los Angeles periodontists will determine which treatments may be needed to ensure the life changing results and dream smile the patient desires. In some cases, additional treatment such as bone grafting, or gum grafting may be necessary, so the periodontist will decide in the initial consultation. 


Dental implants are titanium or zirconium,a holistic alternative posts that replace the missing or extracted tooth roots and support permanent restorations, also known as fake teeth. The implants are placed into the jawbone and integrate into the bone to become a permanent part of your mouth, so they cannot slip, break or cause damage like dentures or a fixed bridge can. Depending on the amount of bone density available, a bone graft may need to be complete in order to ensure there is enough bone to successfully anchor the implant. After the implant has been placed, the patient’s mouth is scanned to create a digital impression of the implant site. Your West Los Angeles periodontist will perform a scan and the impression is sent to the lab to create temporary restorations, also known as artificial teeth, so that the patient will not have gaps in their smile while they heal⁣⁣. Both the temporary and permanent restorations are color-matched to blend seamlessly with the patient’s smile and look just like real teeth. After a 3-6 month period, during which the implants integrate into the bone and the gum tissue around the implants heal, the patient will return for their permanent restorations. ⁣⁣


Dental implants can completely rejuvenate a patient’s oral health, provide him or her with the comfort of eating, speaking and laughing with ease, and restore their self-esteem allowing them to go through life with confidence!  ⁣⁣⁣

I have been flying from New York to come see Dr. Aalam, Dr Krivitsky, and the staff at the Center for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy for about the past year. I was in need of a dental implant, and there is no better place to have any kind of work done, and no nicer staff to lead you along the way. The work is finally done and the results have by far exceeded my expectations. I can’t thank them enough for new smile and I give them my highest recommendation.

Gum Recession

West Los Angeles

I had told myself my entire life that I would never get my wisdom teeth removed because of the horrible childhood experiences I had with dentists. A coworker referred me here because of the amazing experience she had and let me tell you…My fear of the dentist was completely erased and made up for by Dr Krivitsky. My surgery was so quick and easy, the office was the cleanest and most comfortable I could have asked for, and every single person that works there is so kind. I could not recommend this place more!
