INVISALIGN awarding Dr. Gabe the PREMIER PROVIDER designation



The representatives from Invisalign Invisible Braces came by the Encino office today to present an award, a custom cake, and a full meal (not Kosher, but it’s the thought that counts 🙂 ) to celebrate my award of being a ‘PREMIER PROVIDER’. A PREMIER PROVIDER is one of the top awards Invisalign gives out to only a small percentage of Invisalign providers.

The ”Sticky” on Dentures: Everything You NEVER Wanted to Know

Posted by & filed under DENTURES, EDUCATIONAL, IMPLANTS, Our Office.


Can’t you just pull out all of my teeth and give me dentures? I hear this question a lot more than you think. With the price of properly done dental procedures, patients sometimes think this may be the best option. My general philosophy on dentistry is that there is nothing better than your actual teeth in your mouth. If a tooth breaks, fix it before it becomes a problem. If you lose a tooth, place an implant in its place before neighboring teeth are affected by bone loss. We offer interest free Read more […]

Rosie never had her teeth whitened, and she was afraid to do ZOOM! whitening based on her friend’s sensitivity experience. (I have had Zoom! many times, and I have never had any issues, but many patients experience sensitivity to different degrees.) Also, she did not want to do a take-home tray system Read more […]

Today’s post is an important topic that has come up a lot in my offices. It is more educational than it is entertaining. Sorry.                          Tooth colored fillings, known as ”composites”, are one of the major advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry. For a small cavity or a chip on one of your front teeth, composites can be a perfect fix. They can look natural, and a tooth colored filling does not need a lot of additional drilling to put one Read more […]

There is no question about it, your entire body is connected. Just like the song says: Your head bone’s connected to your neck bone.. or something like that. This is the exact reason why someone who had a major hip surgery or heart valve replacement needs to be pre-medicated (as a precaution) before any dental work. We don’t want bacteria, decay, or disease from your mouth to go into your blood stream and accumulate or damage other parts of your body. Numerous studies show (for more info email: Read more […]
