MEET SAWTELLE PERIODONTISTS, DR. AALAM AND DR. KRIVITSKY
A Sawtelle periodontist is a dental specialist who is an expert in dental implantology, the gums, and the supporting structures of the mouth. It is important to seek the care of a board-certified periodontist near Sawtelle if you are in need of dental implants to replace missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants are the ideal solution to replacing lost or damaged teeth. Other solutions include dentures or bridges, however dental implants provide permanent, long lasting comfort. Dental implants look, feel and function just like real teeth, and blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, to create a healthy, natural-looking smile. Rather than dealing with messy nightly soaks, bad odors, and regular maintenance associated with dentures, dental implants are a permanent way to restore missing teeth without a lifetime of maintenance or inconvenience. Dental implants restore oral health and function, confidence and most notably, comfort, as patients can chew speak without worry.
LEARN ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are titanium or zirconium posts that replace the missing tooth roots. The implant is securely rooted into the jawbone, integrating into the bone over a three-month period to become one with your natural structure. Dental implants become a permanent part of the mouth, and cannot slip out or break. The titanium or zirconia, the holistic alternative to titanium implants, serves as a secure foundation to support the permanent restoration. The restoration, also known as an artificial tooth, looks, feels and functions just like a real tooth, and restores patients’ abilities to chew, speak and smile with ease and comfort. The advantages of dental implants far outweigh the disadvantages of bridges or dentures. Patients with dental implants can floss between teeth regularly and with ease, the maintenance of implants is the same as how you would care for your natural teeth, and it is a cost effective alternative to the regular maintenance associated with dentures or flippers.

WHAT OUR SAWTELLE PATIENTS ARE SAYING…
Patients trust Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky to provide expert, personalized care in a spa-like environment:
I had the pleasure of having Dr. Alana Krivitsky help me several times where my temporary bridge fell out. I was visiting from Seattle and was waiting for my permanent solution from my dentist in Seattle. She was very accommodating in getting me in the same day. Her chair side manner is amazing…personable, caring and gentle. She genuinely cares about her patients.
Dr. Kravitsky is a very skilled professional with an amazing bedside manner. She is sweet, funny, and explains everything in ways you can understand. She alleviated all my anxiety right away. I knew I was in great hands.
My deep cleaning (done by Dr. Kravitsky herself) was literally painless I didn’t even need to take any pain reliever afterward! And my follow up 6 weeks later showed major improvement. I am so relieved! My gum recession and pockets have lessened significantly and are no longer painful at all!
