Dental Care of Beverly Hills protects you, the patient, by utilizing the dental dam while performing restorative procedures. Surgeons use surgical drapes to isolate the area being treated and to prevent bacterial contamination.
Dr. Lalexarian uses the dental dam for procedures involving the nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue in your mouth to protect all his patients. This rubber dam creates a clean and dry operating area, void of contamination, minimizing the risk of infection in your mouth. It provides a better adhesive for bonding material, making the filling more durable, and prevents the possibility of any materials, like old mercury fillings, or chemicals falling into your mouth/being ingested during treatment.
Without the use of the rubber dam, unsightly amalgam tattoos, which is residual mercury, can be permanently embedded into the oral tissue during the removal of old restorations. Dental Care of Beverly Hills vows to provide safe dentistry for all of our patients. Call us today to find out more about our healthy dental alternatives at (310) 275-0838.
