DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are a unique solution to teeth loss, which can ultimately give a patient the impression of naturally looking teeth that feel and look like their original teeth. Since the implants reestablish a foundation for a lost tooth, a person can once again be able to enjoy a variety of foods they were previously unable to eat.

Facial structure remains unaltered, allowing patients to proceed with their lives in a normal fashion and enjoy daily advantages they otherwise wouldn’t. Aside from the comfort dental implants can ensure in one’s appearance, the replacement teeth can provide a patient with the renewed confidence of a beautiful, natural smile. Clearly, the immense benefits of choosing dental implants exceed the nutritional value of having healthy teeth, as patients will rediscover their willingness to smile, speak, and laugh without the pressure of exposing a gap from a lost tooth. To further explore the advantages of dental implants, contact our office located in Beverly Hills at Beverly Hills Office Phone Number 310-652-7800 to schedule a consultation appointment.

Gingival Gum Grafting

If your teeth constantly ache when eating hot or cold foods, you may be developing gum recession. In addition to the sensitivity felt in your roots when enjoying such foods, your gum and tooth may appear displeasing. If this is the case, gum grafting is a plausible option that you should consider. Gum grafting will strengthen the tissue surrounding the tooth, anchoring the tooth in and preventing a receding gum line.

When gum recession occurs, gum grafting may be an option. Gum recession often results in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an unsightly appearance of the gum and tooth. The gingival graft is highly predictable and results in a stable healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth.

Bone Regeneration

Gum Disease is the number one reason for tooth loss in adults. Guided tissue bone regeneration regenerates the gum and bone tissue previously lost to periodontal disease. In many situations we now have the ability to grow bone where it has been lost around teeth.

Crown Lengthening

Crown Lengthening involves adjusting the level of the gum tissue and bone around the tooth in question to create a new gum-to tooth relationship. Crow lengthening may be required when your tooth needs a new crown, or for cosmetic purposes to correct a “gummy” smile.

Periodontal Disease

Gum disease affects 75% of adults throughout their lifetime, claiming the majority of teeth in adults aged 35 and over. Periodontal diseases are ongoing infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth.

Bacterial plaque produces toxins or poisons that irritate the gums, which may cause them to turn red, swell and bleed easily. If prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth, causing periodontal pockets to form along the tooth. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss.

The early stages of periodontal diseases are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. Dr. Raschkovsky prides himself on the fact that he is very conservative in his treatment recommendations and limits surgery to the areas where it is absolutely necessary.
