They can be very helpful. Tongue cleaners or scrapers help to reduce the volatile sulfur compounds that cause bad breath. By brushing or scraping the middle and back of the tongue patients can reduce their bad breath for a short time.
Many of the advancements in dentistry and technology today mean that gentle dentistry is now a reachable reality rather than just an intangible goal. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, an expert cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, has built his entire practice around this philosophy of gentle and calming dentistry. It’s almost an oxymoron to some folks.
As it is, laser technology has remarkably shifted the care of gums and teeth by first of all shrinking the time spent in recovery after dental visit but also reduced your time sitting in the treatment room chair with your mouth agape. Dental lasers give off a narrow, intense beam of light that applies energy to shape, vaporize or remove tissue. This laser precision allows Dr. Maddahi, leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, to replace metal dental tools that often times feel barbaric with nimble, quiet, quick, no-touch lasers that don’t even require anesthetic. Dr. Maddahi uses a high-tech cool laser for recontouring gums, drilling cavities, treating periodontal disease and more. This means the elimination of vibration and heat of a drill, soft-tissue procedures can be completed with a much less swelling, bleeding and post-op pain.
Dr. Maddahi, a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, is now able to minimize or vaporize periodontal disease simply by applying these lasers to the infected areas and killing off bacteria, therefore reducing inflammation in a snap. Later, the gum tissue will grow back without the bacteria. Similarly when you think about smile transformations, Dr. Maddahi is able to reshape the gums lining your teeth with laser-like precision. You don’t have to suffer from swelled gums or bleeding in the aftermath. The procedure is pain-free. Lasers have also been used to quicken teeth whitening. Ultimately, lasers and Dr. Maddahi’s philosophy toward gentle dentistry has enabled him to provide his patients with pain-free, comfortable, quick dental care while reducing healing time. Most of his patients, sit up from the chair, saying, “that’s it, you’re already finished, I didn’t even feel a thing.” Dr. Maddahi smiles and says, “Yes, you’re all done.”
Many of you may remember the frightening first sight of your grandparents’ dentures soaking in a glass full of fizzy water on the bathroom sink. And since that day, you may have dreaded the idea of losing your teeth and getting old. Fortunately, with the magic of technology and surprisingly man’s adventures into space, we now have the capabilities to provide new teeth that don’t have to be removed and cleaned in a cup.
Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, an expert in reconstructive dentistry in Beverly Hills, utilizes computers with digital technology and imaging, the latest laser technology and titanium to give you a proud smile instead of a closed mouth, embarrassed one.
Missing teeth are the sign of aging, but no longer have to be a give away. Dr. Maddahi, a dental implant specialist in Beverly Hills, can restore your mouth with dental implants that function like your natural teeth to eat and smile without pain. The dental implants are constructed out of a smart metal called titanium that fuses naturally into the bone. This bionic bond lasts a lifetime. What sets Dr. Maddahi, a leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, apart from most other dentists is a combination of superior expertise and cutting edge technology. He uses a special stain to detect tooth decay, lasers to disinfect the area, special sealers to prevent further bacterial invasion, a digital bite recorder to map bite adjustments, and the safest, pain-free materials and procedures.
Dental anxiety may be another silent factor in the study showing that a quarter of children in California have never visited a dentist. One of my greatest fears as a child was going to the dentist. I remember sitting in the waiting room hearing the screaming kids, the sound of the screeching dental drill and feeling tense. When my name was called, tears welled in my little eyes. By the time the dentist entered the exam room, I cried in terror until my embarrassed mother carried me out.
At that point, she could have easily nixed professional dental care. Some parents might have but instead she found a highly recommended dentist with video games and toys in the waiting room, Disney movies playing in the treatment rooms and Sony Walkman headphones on the dentist chairs. Needless to say, we carry those dental anxieties into our adulthood. Anytime, I see a new dentist that anxiety rushes back and my past pain experiences do too. I’ve walked out of many dentist offices, but there is hope.
Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, the best dentist in Beverly Hills, has a magical way of making those anxieties disappear the moment you enter what I like to call his Dental Spa. The place feels like the inside of a Day Spa. In the waiting room, you can sit for a relaxing cup of tea, listen to calming Zen-like music and browse the peaceful space that resembles an art gallery.
Patients say they feel pampered when they sit down in the treatment room with Dr. Maddahi. You can receive a massage to calm your nerves. That screeching drill that scared me in the past, no longer exists in Dr. Maddahi’s dental spa because he uses a quiet laser drill that does not require anesthesia. It takes 10 minutes to have a cavity filled, and you don’t go home feeling like you have a fat lip. Dr. Maddahi, a leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, uses the latest technology to take care of your teeth and mouth in a gentle manner. His entire philosophy and dental practice is focused on not only transforming your past experiences with bad dentists but also transforming the care you receive to give you limitless possibilities to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of. Dr. Maddahi has found that with his philosophy of gentle care utilizing the latest technology in cosmetic dentistry, his patients heal quicker and happier.
One in four children have never visited a dentist in California according to a recent study published in the July issue of the Health Affairs journal and reported in the Los Angeles Times and on California Healthline. The appalling statistic finds a quarter of our population under the age of 11 have never stepped foot in a dentist office or had their tiny mouths examined by a professional. Cavities are prevalent especially after the age six and untreated gum disease can lead to early decaying of teeth and other more serious health and heart problems.
“If parents neglect the first, early dentist visit for their children, they send a signal that oral health is not important,” said Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, leading cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills. “This is devastating, I fear the implications of poor dental hygiene reach beyond youth and will surface in overall health as these children mature. Oral health is a barometer to our overall health and well being.”
Dr. Maddahi, expert dentist in Beverly Hills, recommends that children come in at least by their third birthday and visit twice yearly for a regular check-up and clean. He educates his patients on a dental health wellness program that includes dental hygiene program in the home, preventative care and a healthy diet for your teeth. But an oral health program in the home should begin when an infant receives his or her first tooth. Children should learn a daily routine of brushing their teeth after breakfast and before bed. The toothbrush should be changed every two to three months and after a cold or other illness. By or just before age six, he recommends children have a special sealant placed on their molars to protect their teeth from cavities and the child’s natural inclination toward a sweet tooth diet. He also is intimately aware of the diseases poor dental health have on children and adults because he’s spent numerous hours reversing and correcting them.
When you think about your own childhood, your dental wellness program daily came from habits instilled by your parents then reinforced by your dentist who you visited twice a year. If you didn’t adhere to this program, your parents would warn, “Your teeth are going to rot.”
Unfortunately for a quarter of our California children this may not be a threat but a reality. Dental health awareness, eduction and a proper oral health routine starts with you, for yourself and your children. Dr. Maddahi, leading dentist in Beverly Hills, can help you design a dental health wellness program to give you and your children longevity.
This weekend’s Fourth of July celebrations are full of parties, parades and food. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist, would like to suggest some healthy treats that are good for you and your teeth over the long Independence Day weekend. At the family barbecue this weekend, look for foods with calcium and phosphorus, such as poultry, cheeses, milk, meats and nuts. These foods help to re-mineralize enamel in the teeth. Dr. Maddahi also recommends snacking on crunchy vegetables and fruits like carrots, apples and pears. Crunchy vegetables and fruits have a higher water content and help minimize the effect of sugars. These foods also aid in stimulating saliva production. As saliva bathes the teeth, it washes away the food particles and protects them against tooth decay. This year as you are celebrating the Fourth of July with friends and family celebrate your healthy smile by making healthy food choices.

Dr. Maddahi is committed to practicing gentle dentistry at his Beverly Hills office. He continually searches for new dental tools and methods that eliminate dental procedure pain for his patients. After thoroughly researching new dental drill technologies, he recently added the Waterlase MD Turbo to his practice. This cool dental laser allows Dr. Maddahi to treat his patients without the noise, smell or pain of a traditional drill. As the tooth or gum area is bathed with a cool stream of water, a laser gently and quietly addresses dental problems including dental decay, cavities, smile makeovers, gum disease and other dental issues. During a cavity procedure, the laser quickly and precisely removes dental decay without affecting the surrounding tooth structure. The laser also is used to re-contour and reshape the gums. It also treats infected or inflamed due to periodontal issues. Click here to see a video on the Waterlase system. Because the Waterlase system is extremely gentle, the result is little or no bleeding and less swelling. Unlike a traditional drill, the laser does not generate heat or cause the tooth or gum to vibration. For the patient, this means a dental procedure can be done with little or no anesthesia. Imagine leaving a dental office with a smile instead of that numb, uncomfortable feeling.

One of the most significant cosmetic dental advancements over the last seventy years is the development of the porcelain veneer. This restorative process addresses a number of dental issues. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, combines his more than 22 years of dental expertise with his artistic talent when creating natural, beautiful porcelain veneers for his patients. Beverly Hills porcelain veneers give patients a opportunity to improve their smiles quickly and conveniently, unlike orthodontic procedures, which can take several years to complete. The veneers can correct crooked teeth, gaps between teeth and discolored teeth. They also may be used to lengthen teeth, fix chips and create a more symmetric look. A dental veneer is a exceptionally, thin shell that is custom-made from porcelain. This ceramic material is favored by dentists like Dr. Maddahi for its translucence and natural tooth-like appearance. It also is a popular material because it is strong, stain-resistant and long-lasting. Dr. Maddahi further customizes the porcelain veneer procedure by using the state-of-art Shade Vision technology. The system utilizes digital images to match the correct tone and color of the patient’s teeth for a very natural-looking veneer.

New advances in dental technology have made a trip to the dentist office easier than ever before. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Cosmetic Dentist in Los Angeles, practices gentle dentistry at his Beverly Hills office using dental tools that cause little or no pain and in many cases eliminate the need for dental anesthesia.Being afraid of going to the dentist is a common fear for many patients. It is the cause of countless missed and rescheduled appointments. However, a missed cleaning and dental checkup can lead to serious dental problems like root canals, tooth decay and lost teeth. New advances in dental technology have made a trip to the dentist office easier than ever before. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Cosmetic Dentist in Los Angeles, practices gentle dentistry at his Beverly Hills office using dental tools that cause little or no pain and in many cases eliminate the need for dental anesthesia. High-tech dental tools like the DIAGNOdent laser system allow Dr. Maddahi and his team to identify dental issues long before they are detectable on traditional dental x-rays. The examination tool uses laser light to painlessly identify any small dental caries that may be present. This micro-dentistry approach continues if additional treatments are needed. Dr. Maddahi recently added the Waterlase MD Turbo™ to his office. The cool, dental laser can treat cavities, periodontal disease and other dental issues. In many cases, cavities can be drilled and filled without the need for anesthesia. The laser technology also eliminates tissue vibration and the heat typically generated by a traditional dental drill. This allows soft-tissue treatments to be completed with less bleeding and swelling, resulting in less overall post-op pain. Click here to see a video segment on the Waterlase system featuring Dr. Maddahi. If anesthesia is needed, Dr. Maddahi uses the Citoject. This pen-shaped injection device employs a micro-compressor, which precisely controls the administration of anesthesia and numbs only the affected tooth, not the surrounding tissue, lips, face or tongue. The patient feels no pain only a small amount of pressure as the anesthesia is being injected. Los Angeles gentle dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, has utilized the latest dental technology to treat and create beautiful, natural smiles for close to 25 years at his Beverly Hills office, located at 436 N. Roxbury Drive, Suite 202. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary dental evaluation; we can be reached by email or at 310-888-7797.
