RESTORE YOUR SMILE
Missing teeth are quite common. If a missing tooth makes you feel self-conscious or hinders your ability to chew or speak, know that there is a solution. Dr. Amin Samadian may recommend dental implants to improve the health and appearance of your teeth and give you the ability to eat and speak comfortably and feel more confident in your own skin. Keep reading for more information on how dental implants may restore your smile and change your life for the better.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. They provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Essentially, dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are usually made of titanium and surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or periodontist like Dr. Amin Samadian.
While dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years, they may have to be re-tightened or replaced every so often due to normal wear.

REASONS FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
There are a number of reasons Dr. Samadian may recommend dental implant surgery. Tooth replacement may be a good option if the goal is to:
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
Restore your confident smile
Improve chewing, speech, and digestion
Enhance facial tissues
Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable
WHAT DOES GETTING DENTAL IMPLANTS INVOLVE?
Dr. Amin Samadian is pleased to use XGuide, a cutting-edge technology that allows him to provide the most accurate dental implants. It focuses on three specific purposes in order to enhance the overall success rate of dental implant procedures including:
The depth of the implant
The angle of the implant
The position of the implant
While Dr. Samadian conducts your tooth replacement procedure, you can expect him to use the XGuide technology to get a 360-degree of the drill he is using. This will allow him to have a live an accurate view of the position of the drill as well as your mouth so that he can place the drill in the optimal position.
Once Dr. Samadian places the implant over your jaw and covers it with gum tissue, it will need to integrate into your jawbone for three to six months. Dr. Samadian will attach a post to the implant and allow the gum tissue to grow up around it. In some cases, he’ll place the implant and post at the same time. The procedure will end when he attaches a customized crown to the implant post.
ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS PAINFUL?
Dr. Amin Samadian uses a variety of advanced techniques and offers detailed after care instructions to make sure you are as comfortable as possible before and after teeth replacement surgery.
Since you’ll receive a local anesthetic to numb your gums and jawbone, you shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort during tooth replacement surgery. Once your procedure is over, your mouth will likely be numb. Dr. Amin Samadian may prescribe a pain medication that you can take if you start to notice some discomfort after the first 24 hours.
He’ll also encourage you to drink plenty of fluids and avoid hot foods or liquids for a short time frame after the surgery. In addition, he may suggest that you apply an ice pack on your check to reduce swelling. Biting on a gauze pad may also be recommended to alleviate any bleeding.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?
After tooth replacement surgery, you can expect a redefined smile that allows you to radiate with confidence. You’ll no longer feel self-conscious about missing gaps and uneven teeth.
Fortunately, caring for dental implants is a breeze. You’ll care for them the same you would care for your natural teeth by brushing and flossing daily and visiting a dentist for routine exams and cleanings.
