Choosing the Best Dental Implant Dentist

If you’ve been considering getting dental implants in Newport Beach, it can feel overwhelming when you’re trying to narrow down which provider to see. So many dentists offer implant treatments, computerized implant procedures, and “same day” options that it becomes difficult to separate one from the next.

But when it comes down to it – your smile is forever. Choosing your implant dentist isn’t a decision you should take lightly. Here are some important things to look for when you need someone who can offer you the level of quality that your smile deserves.

Finding an Experienced Provider

Because of the technology used in dental implantology, the process is becoming easier and easier for the typical family dentist to provide in their office. That being said, it’s still a very complex procedure. You need to be able to trust that your implant dentist has performed enough cases in the course of their career to identify potential problems, such as loss of bone or the need for a sinus lift, and to understand how your personal dental history should influence planning of your treatment.

Dr. Sean Mohtashami has placed over 8,000 implants since the 1970s. In fact, since more modern technology has come into play, he hasn’t had to turn away a single implant patient in over 15 years.

Are They Really “Teeth in a Day”?

You can’t make it through a website about dental implants without seeing claims of Teeth in a Day or Same Day Teeth — but are they really? Many dentists place implants and then have the patient wear a temporary prosthesis for months before a final prosthesis is ready. But Dr. Sean actually places permanent teeth in the very same day. We don’t want our patients to have to wait for a permanent prosthesis when the technology is available to restore their smile in one day. After all, Dr. Sean knows how it feels – he’s an implant patient himself!

How Will it Impact the Rest of Your Smile?

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to an implant procedure. Most dentists focus on a particular type of implant procedure or prosthesis, and make it fit the patient. If you have healthy teeth, you shouldn’t necessarily have to pull them just to replace the ones that are missing. Dr. Sean will tailor your entire treatment plan based on the specific, individual needs of your entire smile.

We understand that getting dental implants is a huge decision to make. That’s why we conveniently provide complimentary consultations to all prospective patients at our Newport Beach office. Call us today to schedule yours!
