Dental Implant Process
Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh and Dr. Sina Farzin work together to provide their patients quality dental implants under one roof. We will meet with you to thoroughly evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals to ensure that dental implants are right for you. If you qualify for dental implants, Congressional Dental will create a personalized treatment plan in their Rockville, MD dentist office. The implant process, from evaluation to securing the dental restoration, usually takes six to eight months, and most patients don’t experience a disruption to their daily lives.
Placing the Implant – If a tooth extraction is needed, that will be performed first and then the dental implant will be surgically placed in the jawbone below the gum line. Dr. Farzin will perform the operational phase of your dental implant treatment. The biocompatible nature of the titanium post is designed to fuse with the jaw bone for a permanent bond that will support natural bone regeneration. The healing process can take anywhere from three to six months. Depending on where the implant was placed, a temporary restoration may be placed while the implant heals and integrates with the bone.
Restoring the Dental Implant – While the dental implant is healing, your dental crown, denture, or dental bridge will be fabricated at a dental laboratory according to our specifications. After about three to six months, once the dental implant has fully fused with your jaw bone, Dr. Sarkarzadeh will attach the abutment to the implant post. Then the dental crown, dental bridge or denture is secured to the dental implant abutment for a permanent restoration by Dr. Sarkarzadeh in his Rockville, MD dentist office.

Dental Implant Maintenance
Dental implants require the same kind of care as your natural teeth. Implants, like your natural teeth, depend on healthy gums and surrounding tooth structures for support. It is essential that you brush and floss regularly and visit Congressional Dental at least twice a year for dental cleanings at their Rockville, MD dentist office. With regular and diligent oral hygiene, your dental implants should last a lifetime.
