Frequently Asked Questions

Where is your office?

We are located in the city of 8660 Wilshire blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211.

What do you offer for comfort and relaxation?

We pride ourselves in making every visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. JJP Dental Practice offers conscious sedation, nitrous oxide and oral sedatives when necessary. We also have music CD’s and television available.

What can you do to whiten my teeth?

We use the latest procedures and materials, such as in-office bleaching and veneers to help you achieve a radiant smile.

What are Invisalign® Invisible Braces?

Invisalign® uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires. So even up close it’s really hard for people to tell you’re wearing Invisalign.

This new treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the braces you’ve always avoided. More about Invisalign® Invisible Braces.

What is conscious sedation?

You are given a small pill to take an hour prior to your dental appointment. Your companion will accompany you to the office. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy.

When you arrive in our office, you will be escorted into the comfort room, covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, our doctors and the experienced clinical team at JJP Dental Practice will take care of your dental needs.

When your treatment is complete, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.

If I smoked for years, can whitening help me?

The answer is yes, depending on the amount and type of staining. If whitening does not work, porcelain veneers will allow you to have the beautiful smile you have always wanted.

Is it normal for my gums to bleed when I brush?

No. a comprehensive oral exam and cleaning, combined with good home care instruction will help you achieve healthy gums. In general, bleeding gums are a sign of gingivitis or periodontal disease. However, other conditions may make your gums bleed.

What is an implant?

Implants work by mimicking the structure of natural teeth. Like natural teeth, dental implants are secured in the jawbone. Successful dental implants become firmly embedded in the jaw, providing a chewing surface like that of natural teeth. Implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth by depending on the circumstance. Please ask our doctors about this exciting procedure.

What is Grinding? Is my headache due to grinding?

I think I grind my teeth. Is this related to the headaches that I get in the morning and when I am stressed?

Probably. The way the muscles and joints work in your jaw, consistent grinding can cause some pain. Typical problems include headaches in the morning, while you are under increased stress, sore muscles in your temple area, and a sore neck. You do not need to live with this type of discomfort. Our doctors can make you a splint that will minimize or remove this problem altogether.

Does Oral Health = Heart Disease?

Heart disease may begin in your mouth, say researchers at Columbia University Medical Center. In a study of 657 adults, they took samples of oral plaque and measured carotid artery thickness, and indication of atherosclerosis. What they found: Those with the highest levels of bacteria that cause gum disease had the thickest arteries. Previous research has suggested a link between oral health and Heart Disease, but this is the first study to go inside the mouth and actually measure the amount of bacteria. The mouth may be a window to what’s happening in your body say’s study author Moise Desvarieux, an epidemiologist.
