About Dr. Kevin Sands, Expert in Dental Implant Beverly Hills

He remains at the forefront of the field and is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the California State Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

Dr. Sands, Beverly Hills dental implant expert, explains that dental implants, which are titanium cylinders that can be implanted directly into the jawbone, are biocompatible, so the risk of rejection is extremely low. Once they have been placed, the bone grows around the implant to secure the restoration to the jaw much in the same way the tooth root does. Once the implant site has healed, the implant can be used to support a porcelain crown, or several strategically placed implants can be used to support dental bridges or dentures.
While dental implants offer a secure alternative to bridges or dentures, they are also considered a healthier option. They require no alteration of natural teeth, and they help preserve healthy bone tissue for a stronger jawbone. Dr. Kevin Sands works closely with patients to determine the most appropriate restorations for their needs. Dental implants are often an option for the majority of people who are missing one or more teeth. They are most appropriate for patients who have adequate jawbone density and good general health. Other patients may need to address health issues or undergo additional procedures to ensure successful implants procedure and better dental health.
