Since the early 1980s, dental implants have helped those with missing teeth enjoy complete smiles. Biocompatible non-metal implants and progressive bone grafting techniques at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills make this option available to more people than ever in the Beverly Hills, CA area.
Bone grafting for dental implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that resides in jawbone. Bone fuses with the implant to form a solid foundation for a crown, fixed dental bridge, or removable denture. However, there must be sufficient bone to ensure stable placement.
The implant success rate at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills is very high due to expert treatment from Dr. Maghami, a Board certified prosthodontist. She is adept at grafting bone for dental implants.
Solutions for your unique physiology
Some of the bone graft procedure choices available to Beverly Hills patients include:
- Autograft – Tissue from another site on your own body.
- Allograft – Human bone from a cadaver.
- Xenograft – Tissue from a donor of another species (usually bovine).
- Calcium sulfate – A biocompatible synthetic material that restores bone loss.
- Hydroxyapatite – An effective adjunct to the autograft
technique. This naturally-occurring calcium derivative stimulates bone
repair and osseointegration.
- Polymer – A resorbable synthetic that helps to stabilize the implant during bone reconstruction.
PRF dental treatment – a breakthrough in bone grafting
Platelet rich fibrin, or PRF, is a healing biomaterial that promotes bone and soft tissue regeneration. In combination with a bone graft, this minimally invasive technique utilizing a byproduct of your own blood, prevents many of the potential complications that could compromise implant success. PRF was initially utilized for mature implant patients with age-related healing conditions. However, PRF treatment is beneficial in most bone grafting cases.

Been researching a place to get the Air-Flow teeth cleaning near Beverly Hills and found Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
This is the very first time i tried the air flow polishing method and found that it is 100% better and faster than traditional polishing.
My teeth felt smoother and appeared whiter. Sandra, my hygienist at the office did a fantastic job. By the way, the dental chair gives you a massage while you are getting your teeth cleaned.
The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this place!
I don't even know where to begin. This is an exceptional dental office that utilizes methods and equipment in a holistic manner that one can't find anywhere else. From the beginning, Leeshane answered all of my questions and explained the procedure from start to finish. She really eased my fears about everything which pushed me to finally schedule an appointment that I had been putting off. Not only was she professional, but also personable. I felt her positive energy as soon as she answered the phone. It was like I had known her for years! Leeshane really went above and beyond for me. Contact her for any questions or to schedule an appointment. The dentists and staff do an excellent job. I highly recommend!
The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Kanter is very knowledgeable and personable. She did a 3D scan which identified problems areas that are impossible to detect with the standard X-ray. Very happy with my visit and will be returning to the office and following up with a review post-procedure.
