Dental Implants in Westwood

Periodontists are dental specialists who are experts in dental implant surgery. For patients who are missing single, multiple or the majority of their teeth, dental implants in Westwood are the ideal solution for permanently restoring the look and function of patients’ teeth and smiles! Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts that are placed in the jaw to replace the missing or extracted tooth roots, and support the permanent restorations, also known as artificial teeth. The dental implants procedure is a meticulous process that requires the expertise of a periodontist who is specifically trained in dental implantology and oral surgery.

A Westwood oral surgeon at the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy can provide patients with accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans for their specific dental implant needs.

Read testimonials from some of Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky’s satisfied patients:

I was really nervous because I had been to some dentists that had horrible bedside manner and treated my teeth poorly. That was certainly not the case with Dr. Aalam. I ended up needed my wisdom teeth and another tooth removed and he was so nice and accommodating and his work was amazing. I feel no pain on the tooth which I originally scheduled the appointment for. 

Wisdom Tooth Removal


When I was told I needed a bone graft, I was super freaked out, but I felt a lot better after discussing all options and the procedures with Dr Krivitsky.  I was so happy that we tried a super deep cleaning first and that the doctors didn’t go straight for an invasive procedure. It actually worked and I got 20-30% of the depth back of my trouble spot.

Bone Grafting


The level of care, bedside manner, attention to detail and all of the staff are top notch.  The office staff is so warm and inviting and although no one likes going through dental work of this nature, my visit strangely had the vibe of a spa appointment. The office is beautiful, clean and very comfortable as well. You can tell the second you walk through the door that this practice has paid attention to every little detail from decor to your medical needs.  I believe this correlates with intelligence and skill, which is exactly what I found at this practice.

Patient Experience


Dr Krivitsky successfully repaired an obliterated infected sinus communication on the same day as a new patient and emergency visit. Dr Krivitsky uses the latest technology in order to produce a non-invasive, successful result.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am to her for healing me. On top of her incredible talent and skill is her intelligence and chair side manner. I cannot recommend Dr Krivitsky highly enough.
