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.

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.

We are all striving to be healthier from the foods we eat to getting more exercise. What many of use don’t realize is that good dental health translates to good overall health. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, educates his patients about the ways a healthy mouth can keep you healthy.We are all striving to be healthier from the foods we eat to getting more exercise. What many of use don’t realize is that good dental health translates to good overall health. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, educates his patients about the ways a healthy mouth can keep you healthy. Problems due to dental issues were often thought only to affect the mouth. But research has shown that dental issues can contribute to many health problems. When dental issues, such as gum disease, root canals, cavities or other problems, are left untreated the result can be quite serious. “Common problems like gum disease have been found to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes as well as worsening the severity of diabetes in some patients. Gum disease also can lead to immune system issues, contribute to osteoporosis and lower a patient’s resistance to infections. These are only some of the reasons why proper treatment for dental issues is vital to overall health,” according to Dr. Maddahi. With the use of advanced dental technology and equipment, Dr. Maddahi is able to diagnose and treat dental issues quickly. One important piece of diagnostic equipment is the 40x by 1600x high-resolution Trinocular Compound Microscope. The microscope is used to analyze both types and number of mouth bacteria present. When harmful bacteria are identified, Dr. Maddahi can determine which periodontal treatments are necessary. State-of-the-art dental lasers can help treat infected or diseased soft tissue and gums. The laser is used to sterilize or cut the tissue and many times with little or no need for anesthetic. The treatment both reduces the amount of inflammation and eliminates harmful bacteria for up to two months. The treated tissue is then able to grow back bacteria free.

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. Click here to watch a video segment about the dental implant procedure and learn about one patient’s experience. Patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Brentwood and all over Los Angeles are finding out about the convenience of same-day dental implants. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

We’ve all been taught to brush our teeth twice daily to keep our teeth and gums clean and healthy. This basic daily activity helps prevent tooth decay, which can lead to common dental problems like cavities, root canals and tooth loss. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, has some advice on how to properly care for our teeth with some basics on choosing the best tooth brushes and dental floss. We’ve all been taught to brush our teeth twice daily to keep our teeth and gums clean and healthy. This basic daily activity helps prevent tooth decay, which can lead to common dental problems like cavities, root canals and tooth loss. A recent GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare survey of American adults found that many of us feel our dental health care habits are not as good as they should be. Many reported that they commonly skip one of the three basic dental hygiene habits that include daily brushing and flossing as well as annual dental cleanings. While 84 percent of those surveyed brushed their teeth to keep them healthy, about half reported that they had not been to the dentist for a cleaning within the last year. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, has some advice on how to properly care for our teeth with some basics on choosing the best tooth brushes and dental floss. With dozens of toothbrushes to choose from, it is hard to know which one to choose. According to Dr. Maddahi, “Start by choosing a soft toothbrush with rounded bristles. These brushes are strong enough to clean the teeth and gums without scrubbing them to hard.” “I also recommend electric brushes for my patients that may experience difficulty brushing their teeth. It is important to remember to replace your toothbrushes every two to three months and after colds.” Flossing is the next step in good oral care. Dr. Maddahi recommends finding the type of floss that you prefer. Dental floss can be waxed or unwaxed, ribbon or flat, and flavored or unflavored. The type of floss is not as important as just being sure to floss every day. Regular dental check ups are essential to prevent tooth decay from damaging the teeth and causing problems such as cavities and root canals. Dr. Maddahi recommends that his patients schedule two dental visits a year for good dental health. Click here to create a customized oral health care plan for you and your family.

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.

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.

Stained and yellow teeth can affect your appearance and add years to your age. However, you don’t have to settle for a yellowed smile. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist, is an expert in transforming teeth from dull and dingy to dazzling and bright with teeth whitening and other dental restoration procedures.Stained and yellow teeth can affect your appearance and add years to your age. However, you don’t have to settle for a yellowed smile. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist, is an expert in transforming teeth from dull and dingy to dazzling and bright with teeth whitening and other dental restoration procedures. Dental stains are commonly caused by the foods and beverages you drink, things like red sauces, berries, tea, coffee, cola and red wine. Smoking can also cause staining. Most whitening procedures work by removing stains from normal tooth enamel and dentin. However, whitening will not work on dental fillings, crowns or bridges. With so many choices, it is hard to know which whitening procedure is the fastest and most effective. Some teeth whitening procedures take months to show results, while others over-whiten the teeth resulting in an unnatural-looking smile. Dr. Maddahi recommends the Zoom! 2 Teeth Whitening System because it is both efficient and effective. “In many cases my patients can eliminate yellowish stains and have a brighter, whiter smile in one, quick appointment.“ The Zoom system consists of a peroxide-based gel that is applied to the teeth and activated with a specially developed dental laser. During the 30 to 60 minute procedure, the gel penetrates into the surface of your teeth and removes unsightly stains. While your teeth are being whitened, you will be relaxing comfortably and listening to music or watching a movie. Click here to view a segment on teeth whitening featuring Dr. Maddahi.
