Dr. Massoomi and his team would be honored to give you the smile of your dreams with dental implants. If you are considering dental implants, you may have a few questions about the process.
We have created a list of frequently asked questions so that you can continue to develop your expectations about the dental implant process. If you have any more questions, feel free to give us a call.
Why choose dental implants?
Why sacrifice healthy teeth to install a dental bridge? You can maintain your healthy smile by independently replacing your teeth without touching the adjacent teeth. Dental implants will stimulate and protect the jaw bone while giving you the next-best-thing to a natural smile!
What types of restorations are available?
Dr. Massoomi will work closely with your dentist to restore your dental implants with beautiful replacement teeth. A single implant with a single crown is used to replace one missing tooth. A implant supported bridge can be used to replace several missing teeth in a row. An All-on-4 supported denture are the best option for patients who need to replace a full arch of missing or damaged teeth.
Will my dental implants procedure be comfortable?
Dr. Massoomi performs the majority of his surgeries under IV sedation, hospital-style operating suite. Dr. Massoomi is an examiner for the Dental Board of California and travels around the state inspecting other dental practitioners to make sure that the sedation is provided in a safe manner to their patients.
What is the cost of dental implants?
The cost of dental implants will vary based on your personal needs and your insurance plan. We always prioritize the patients’ health first. We offer competitive pricing with his unparalleled service and technology. Few other offices in the region will be able to offer you the same level of technology. After a comprehensive assessment with Dr. Massoomi, you will have a better idea about the cost of dental implants that are catered to your unique smile. Unfortunately since every case is unique and different, we require an in-person consultation and examination before any estimates can be given.
What is PRGF and how does it affect the healing process?
PRGF (plasma rich in growth factors) are advanced additions to the dental implant process. Dr. Massoomi is one of the few oral surgeons in Northern California to offer this technique. He attended a special course a few years ago in order to be able to office this service. We are proud to provide our patients with this technique in order to accelerate their healing after surgery. With PRGF, you can complete your smile sooner and enjoy an easier recovery, with pain and less bruising. Dr. Massoomi can be found on the BTI technology website as a recognized center: http://bti-biotechnologyinstitute.com/patients/recognized-centres/search/
How do I care for my dental implants?
Once your dental implants are in place, they can last for a very longtome if you take good care of them. This means taking the time to brush and floss frequently, just like you should with your natural teeth, and keeping your appointments with your general dentist every 6 months.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
We can perform an examination to determine whether or not you are a candidate for dental implants. We will review your dental history and your health to decide if dental implants are right for you!
