Missing and severely damaged teeth are a problem for millions of Americans every year. While dentures and bridges used to be the only cosmetic solution for missing teeth, dental implants now offer an alternative to wearing uncomfortable and unnatural-looking prosthetic dental devices. New advances in dental implant technology have made the procedure a dental restoration choice for many patients. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles, specializes in implant dentistry at his Beverly Hills office. “Many patients think that dental implants are not a good option for them because of certain dental or medical conditions. However, advancements in implant technology have made this procedure more widely available.” Dental implants can be placed for patients of any age and can be used to replace one or several missing teeth. Implants are commonly done for patients who have had some type of gum disease or other periodontal issues that led to damaged or missing teeth. It should be noted that there are certain precautions that need to be taken for patients with medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure. Some patients are interested in dental implants to replace their existing dentures or bridges. Implants also can be used to stabilize patients dentures. Bone loss is common for patients who have lost teeth. In these cases, bone grafts may be necessary to properly secure the implant. One of the past drawbacks of dental implants is that the treatment could take months to complete. The patient would need to go to multiple appointments to prepare for the procedure and determine where the implants should be placed.With new dental advances, dental implants don’t have to take months to complete. Dr. Maddahi now offers his patients the latest in dental implant technology with convenient, same-day implant procedures. The Galileos Implant technology by Sirona uses a specially developed 3-D imaging process to give Dr. Maddahi a complete 360-degree image of the patient’s mouth and jaw area. These images are taken in a matter of minutes using cone beam technology during the preparation appointment. Dr. Maddahi examines these images and is able to view where the patient’s sinus and nerves are located. He also uses the images to determine the location, length and quality of the bone in the jaw. All of this information is used to prepare a model of the patient’s mouth and create the surgical stents for the implants. The surgical stent allows Dr. Maddahi to determine where to place the implant post without cutting open the gum. When the patient returns for their implant procedure, Dr. Maddahi uses the stents to quickly and precisely places the implants. Then, a temporary tooth is placed over the implant. The patient leaves the office in a few hours with a new smile. A permanent crown or series of crowns will be cemented into place once Dr. Maddahi has determined that the implant has fused to the bone.

Dental crowns have gone high tech with fast and natural-looking options for patients in Los Angeles. Dental restorations, like crowns, have often taken several appointments to complete. Now a new dental system has eliminated the need for multiple appointments or temporary crowns. Permanent dental crowns can be designed and completed in just one afternoon. Los Angeles dental restoration specialist and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, has begun using the Cerec System to give his patients high-quality, dental crowns quickly and conveniently. After the patient has been settled comfortably into the examination chair, Dr. Maddahi and his team begin the Beverly Hills same-day dental crownprocedure by preparing the tooth and removing any areas of decay or affected tissue. A digital optical impression of the tooth is taken with a specialized camera. Dr. Maddahi examines the 3-D image as he begins to design a customized crown for the patient. Digital images of the natural teeth are also taken and analyzed using the Shade Vision System to determine their exact hue and color variations. The data is used to help select the correct shade of ceramic material for the dental crown. Once the design is completed it is sent to the in-office milling machine where the crown is sculpted in about ten to 20 minutes. Dr. Maddahi makes sure the crown fits properly and tests the bite, before the permanent crown is polished and bonded into place. The appointment takes just a few hours instead of having to return for multiple appointments. Click here to watch a video segment on this dental restoration procedure.

Missing teeth are a problem for millions of Americans. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeonsreports that 69% of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost a permanent tooth due to gum disease, tooth decay, accidents or other dental issues. And as we get older, the problem gets worse with 26% of 74-year-olds missing all of their permanent teeth. Traditionally, missing teeth means dentures, partials and bridges. Each of these replacement dental devices has its drawbacks for example loose or painful dentures can make it difficult to eat and speak. New advances in dental implant technology has made the dental implant procedure easier and faster than ever, so now missing teeth doesn’t necessarily mean dentures or bridges. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, an expert implant dentist in Beverly Hills, utilizes the advanced Sirona GALILEOS Implant System to treat his patients who have missing teeth. This innovative system allows Dr. Maddahi to provide same-day dental implants. The dental implant process used to take up to a year to complete between multiple dental appointments for x-rays and impressions, months of planning and lengthy recovery periods. The Sirona GALILEOS employs a three-dimensional imaging process that produces images of the patient’s entire jaw and joint area in just a few minutes during a preliminary planning appointment. These images are essential in helping Dr. Maddahi and his team prepare for the dental implant procedure. Once the proper placement for the implant is determined using the generated images, Dr. Maddahi creates a surgical stent in his lab on a model of the patient’s jaw. On the day of the implant procedure, the stent is placed over the teeth and gums serving as a guide and enabling the doctor to precisely place the implant in the jaw. Accurate placement allows for much less post-op pain and bleeding as well as faster recovery and greater predictability. Because all the preparation is done in advance, a temporary crown can be created and placed over the implant once the procedure is completed. A permanent crown will be placed in about six months, once the dental implant has fused to the jaw bone. The advantage of dental implants is that they look and feel like natural teeth. Patients can chew without the pain or gum irritation that dentures can cause. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a complimentary smile evaluation, contact our office.

According to Dr. Maddahi, “Restoring a smile is about more than just how it looks, it is also about how it feels to the patient. Whether you are having porcelain veneers, dental implants or crowns done, a natural-looking and feeling smile should always be the result.” “During my smile makeover procedures, I may be placing several veneers or fitting many crowns at once. In order to insure that the results are comfortable for the patients I will digitally record the patient’s bite using the T-Scan II.” Dentists used to rely on articulation paper or waxes to estimate a patient’s bite. The T-Scan II allows Dr. Maddahi to measure the patient’s bite accurately in just a few seconds. Tekscan’s T-Scan II, Occlusal Analysis Solution, records a patient’s bite using 1,370 sensors. The sensors evaluate the amount of force, the surface area, timing and spatial relation of a bite. The data is then analyzed and available for review on a computer screen. Dr. Maddahi uses the data to precisely adjust a patient’s crowns or veneers for a perfect, comfortable bite. This quick, convenient step reduces the need for multiple office visits for bite adjustments. Click here to see a video tour of the digital bite recorder.

Dentures, bridges and dental implants have long been a solution for damaged or missing teeth for millions of Americans. However, with dental implants, patients had to endure several appointments over several months before their smiles could be restored. New advances in dental implants allow patients to have the restoration procedure done quickly and conveniently, many times on the same day. Full mouth restoration and dental implant specialist Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Cosmetic Dentist in Los Angeles, now offers his patients the Galileos Implant Technology by Sirona giving them faster, high quality implants with less pain and healing than traditional procedures. A dental implant combines a titanium cylinder, which is implanted in the jawbone and a porcelain dental crown. Dentists have used traditional dental implants for many years to replace missing teeth. A major drawback to the process is how long the procedure takes. Patients have to come in for several appointments in order to correctly place the implant. What makes the Galileos Implant Technology by Sirona system different is the speed in which the procedure can take place. Patients can have their dental implants in as little as two weeks with one preparation appointment. During the preparation appointment, a number of digital images and x-rays are taken in just a few minutes using the unique 3-D imaging system. Then Dr. Maddahi closely examines the images to plan the patient’s implant procedure. Dental surgical stents are made once the placement in the jawbone is determined. In addition, temporary crowns are created. The patient returns to Dr. Maddahi’s office in about two weeks for their dental implant procedure. Dr. Maddahi uses the dental surgical stents as a guide to place the titanium implants in the upper and lower jaw. Because the placement is already determined, patients experience less swelling and pain as well as faster healing times. Once the implants are placed, the temporary crowns are attached leaving the patient with a natural-looking result. The implants take about six months to fuse to the natural bone, once that is complete Dr. Maddahi will place the permanent crowns. Click here to watch a dental implant testimonial. As one of Beverly Hills’ top implant dentists, Dr. Maddahi has spent close to 25 years caring for and restoring his patients’ beautiful, natural smiles.

Doesn’t it seem that half the people we know, if not more, have used cosmetic dentistry to improve their appearance? Is it vanity that moves people to spend the time and money to get a “new smile”? Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, works from his Beverly Hills dentist office and has had plenty of experience with why people elect cosmetic dentistry.
For sure, most people are not excited about going to the dentist. It is not just because they feel they have better things they would rather be doing, it’s actually a fear of the dentist that may keep them away. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Los Angeles family dentist, with an office in Beverly Hills, wishes to change that.For sure, most people are not excited about going to the dentist. It is not just because they feel they have better things they would rather be doing, it’s actually a fear of the dentist that may keep them away. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Los Angeles family dentist, with an office in Beverly Hills, wishes to change that. A survey was recently conducted by the National Institute for Consumer Education that found that 82% of people have a fear of the dentist. Of those surveyed, 68% said their fear is because of injections. It’s the needles and the pain of the injection that they resist. There were 53% of them who said that they do not like the post-operative numbness. “I have always wanted to revolutionize dentistry. We strive for the fastest, best results with the least pain”, explains Dr. Maddahi. “I research every newly released advanced dental tool, system, procedure and all new equipment, searching for solutions. In the past few years, there have been some revolutionary breakthroughs in dental procedures and equipment.” Anesthesia injections are most often needed to assist the high-speed drill that is employed to remove decay. Now there’s drill-free dentistry. Air-abrasion, a new technology, which acts like a mini-sandblaster, can accurately remove dental decay with a fine aluminum oxide (baking soda) powder. With air-abrasion there’s no vibration, no burning smell (the teeth never get hot), no whining drills, and no anesthetic required. At Dr. Maddahi’s office he pairs drill-free dentistry with DIAGNOdent, an advanced laser system that detects decayed areas prior to their appearance as a hole on the surface of the tooth. DIAGNOdent locates decayed areas that x-rays will not detect. Without this advanced dental tool, a dentist has to remove healthy tooth structure in order to clear even a tiny cavity in a tooth. This new micro-dentistry solution gently removes the decay, with the new air abrasion technique, and avoids any loss of healthy tooth structure. Just recently, Dr. Maddahi added another truly revolutionary new system, the Waterlase MD Turbo. “We are accomplishing our dentistry procedures faster than ever with less pain, less waiting and less recovery time. This accomplishes the highest standard ever in laser dentistry.” This brand new state-of-the-art laser works like a high-speed drill, but never touches the tooth. It uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water, performing dental work without any heat, vibration or pressure. The advanced Waterlase MD Turbo is a cool laser. The speed of this new high-tech laser is nearly equal to that of a high-speed drill. Traditionally, a laser was intrinsically heat based. Waterlase is the only cool laser used in dentistry – which therefore means no more burning to remove tissue and bone. No burning means less pain and faster recovery time. Many patients have found they can now get a cavity filled without the use of any anesthesia. This new laser is also used in the treatment of periodontal disease to significantly shrink inflammation. It is used in the crown lengthening procedure. This is now achieved with less recovery time and much less pain than earlier-used methods. Gum recontouring is also now far faster, with less pain and far more rapid healing. With these new tools and techniques, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi is accomplishing his ambition to provide faster, better dental procedure results with the least pain.
