Titanium is a naturally-occurring element that has been used in medicine for decades. Lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion, titanium is ideal for dental implants. Board-certified periodontist, Dr. Sanda Moldovan and Prosthodontist, Dr. Maghami, restore smiles in the Beverly Hills, CA area with this time-tested technique.
Periodontics and implantology
The term “periodontics” refers to the branch of dentistry dealing with structures that surround and support teeth – including soft tissues, ligaments, and bone. Since periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults, periodontics and implant dentistry naturally go hand in hand.
Are titanium dental implants safe?
While bio-ceramic options are available for patients who prefer non-metal dental implants, titanium remains the go-to material. It has been used for dental implants, with a high success rate, for more than 30 years. The body readily accepts titanium. In a process called osseointegration, bone fuses with titanium, forming a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth (crown), removable denture, or fixed bridge.
Titanium dental implants have extremely low risk of allergic reaction. Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills uses high-quality implants without nickel or other metal alloys.
Benefits of dental implants
- Most lifelike tooth replacement option available. An implant restoration looks, functions, and feels like a natural tooth.
- Easy care. Just brush and floss normally, and maintain regular dental checkups.
- Long-lasting. With good oral hygiene, an implant can last a lifetime.
- Preserves bone. Because an implant resides in the jaw, rather
than on top of gums, it helps to maintain strong bone for a fuller,
more youthful facial appearance.

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.
