Dental implants can enable you to obtain proper tooth alignment to reclaim your self-assurance and avoid future dental complications. Dr. Amin Samadian and his team look not just at the teeth that need to be replaced, but the entire mouth when considering implants, including the bite, bone support, and gum coverage. If you’re considering dental implants, Dr. Samadian and his team are experts who can help you receive the best possible care.*
Dental implants replace missing teeth and provide a fixed alternative to having bridges, removable partial dentures, or complete dentures. They also provide optimal support and stability for any of these dental devices.*
Essentially, dental implants are synthetic roots and teeth that are generally made of titanium and surgically installed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or surgeon like Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff in San Francisco.*
There are multiple reasons Dr. Samadian and his team may recommend dental implant surgery. Tooth replacement may be the best option for you if you want to:*
Dr. Smadian and his team use high-level Cone Beam CT scan technology to evaluate the nerves, sinuses, bone density, bone width, and height in your mouth. This will decide if you’re a perfect candidate for dental implants or if you need to strengthen your bone in that area first with procedures like sinus lifts and bone augmentations, which they also perform at his San Francisco office.*
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is to protect the jaw bone. When any teeth are extracted, the bone that was originally containing the tooth resorbs, and patients can lose the chance of obtaining implants at any point in the future. The other adverse effect of leaving the area empty is that the tooth next to the gap in the mouth will shift and negatively influence the bite and teeth alignment, which can cause trauma to other teeth and, in many cases, TMJ.*

Dr. Amin Samadian uses the highest quality tools for dental implant surgery, including XGuide navigational live guided surgery, or robotic implant placement. This cutting-edge technology allows him to provide the most accurate dental implants to all his patients. It concentrates on three specific purposes to enhance the overall success of the dental implant procedure: the depth, angle, and position of the implant.
While Dr. Samadian and his team perform your implant surgery, you can expect him to use the XGuide technology using the data that comes from the Cone Beam CT scan. This is used to guide the hands of the surgeon with the utmost precision, which is almost impossible to achieve without this aid. This gives Dr. Samadian the most accurate view possible of the position of the drill as well as your mouth so that he can make sure the implant is placed in the ideal position, most of the time without having to cut the gum or put in any stitches.*
Once Dr. Samadian and his team install the implant over your jaw and covers it with your gum tissue, it will need to integrate into the jawbone for two to six months*. Dr. Samadian and his team will add a post to the implant that will permit the gum tissue to grow up around it. In some instances, he’ll position the implant and post simultaneously. The procedure will be completed after he attaches a customized crown to the implant post.
Dr. Amin Samadian and his San Francisco team use a variation of advanced methods to help your procedure be as comfortable as possible, such as flapless surgery, guided surgery, robotic placement, and biostimulation with LASER. He also uses different sedation techniques such as Oral, IV, nitrous oxide, and local anesthesia. They also offer detailed recovery instructions after your surgery to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your healing period.*
Since you’ll receive an anesthetic to numb your mouth, you shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort during your tooth replacement surgery. Dr. Amin Samadian and his team can prescribe pain medication for you to take if you start to feel any discomfort after the first 24 hours. For most of his implant patients, over-the-counter pain medications are all that’s needed.*
They will also urge you to drink lots of fluids and avoid any hot foods or drinks for a period of time after the surgery. Additionally, they might encourage you to apply an ice pack to your cheeks to reduce swelling. Biting on gauze may also be suggested if you notice any bleeding.*
After the implants are finally restored with porcelain crowns, they will work just like your normal teeth and will completely resemble your natural tooth*. One of the largest advantages of receiving dental implants as soon as possible is that it prevents the teeth around that site from shifting and negatively impacting the bone structure, bite relationship, and periodontal health of the area. If an area of the mouth doesn’t have a tooth for a sustained period of time, bone support reduces and it becomes more and more difficult to restore. We may need additional procedures such as orthodontic correction of the bite, reconstruction of the bite in that site, or gum treatments to restore full mouth function*.
Fortunately, taking care of dental implants is extremely simple. You’ll take care of them just like you would care for your natural teeth by brushing and flossing daily and visiting your dentist for routine exams and cleanings. Dr. Samadian and his team suggest using a Waterpik or any kind of water flosser to supplement your regular flossing and coming to the office every 3-4 months for periodontal maintenance appointments to ensure the greatest success rate of the implants.*
