At our practice, Cosmetic Dental Implant Solutions and our team prioritize your comfort. We offer various pain management options for the dental implants procedure. Most of our patients report experiencing less pain than expected during and after the treatment.

In our experience, most individuals are suitable candidates for dental implants, regardless of the condition of their teeth. Age is not a limiting factor either. Our skilled team specializes in treating patients with complex cases, even those who have been turned away elsewhere. To determine if you’re a candidate, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with us.

Dental implant suitability is less about age and more about overall health. While there is no strict age limit, candidates should have reached skeletal maturity, usually around 16-18 years old for girls and 18-20 years for boys.

However, older individuals, even in their 70s or 80s, can still be good candidates if they are in good health and have sufficient bone density to support the implant. The key factors are bone health, gum condition, and general well-being rather than chronological age.

Dental implants offer numerous advantages, including improved oral function, aesthetics, and overall quality of life. They provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure. Implants look and feel like natural teeth, allowing for confident smiling and speaking. Unlike removable dentures, implants are fixed in place, eliminating discomfort and speech difficulties.

They require no special maintenance beyond regular oral hygiene. Furthermore, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care, making them a long-term and cost-effective solution for tooth replacement.

Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, becoming a seamless part of your mouth. Our master lab technicians can assist in designing the shape, color, and size of your teeth to ensure a completely natural look.

You’ll be able to eat, smile, and care for your implants just like real teeth. Take comfort in knowing Dr. Afshar and our team are experienced experts who prioritize your well-being throughout the procedure. We guide you through every step, ensuring you feel confident and at ease before undergoing this life-changing treatment.

The recovery period varies for each patient. Many report minimal discomfort, primarily swelling, and some don’t require pain medication after the procedure. You’ll need to follow a soft food diet for a recommended healing period, after which you can enjoy your favorite foods again.

We understand the financial considerations involved in dental implant treatment. Our practice offers all-in-one pricing, covering your entire treatment plan from evaluation to post-op checks.

The exact cost will be determined during your free consultation. We provide third-party financing options to accommodate your budget.

At Dr. Afshar’s practice, the dental implants procedure is typically completed in just one day.

After sedation, our team performs the implant procedure, and you can rest in our recovery room until the anesthesia wears off. The teeth you leave with are temporary and allow you to resume your daily activities. Six months later, you’ll return for the placement of your permanent teeth.

One of the most common frequently asked questions about dental implants is risks and side effects.

While dental implants are generally safe and successful, like any surgical procedure, they carry some risks and potential complications. These may include infection at the implant site, damage to surrounding structures like nerves or blood vessels, and excessive bleeding during the surgery.

In rare cases, implants may fail to integrate with the jawbone, leading to implant rejection. Additionally, some patients may experience pain, swelling, or bruising following the procedure, which usually subsides with time and proper care.

That said, asking dental implant questions and choosing the right practice will minimize the risks.

We prioritize quality and value in our dental implant treatments. Our practice uses high-quality materials, including titanium support bars, and our focus is solely on dental implants. We believe our dedication to our patients and Family Dental Experience set us apart as leaders in the field.

Absolutely! Your new teeth will not only look and feel like natural teeth but also function just like healthy, strong teeth. With dental implants at Dr. Afshar’s practice, you can confidently bite into your favorite foods once again.
