Dental Implant FAQs Rockville, MD

What is the best option if I’m only missing one tooth?

If you are missing one tooth, Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh or Dr. Sina Farzin will recommend a dental crown that is secured to a dental implant. This will provide patients with a permanent solution that is natural-looking, allows patients to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine, and allows them to eat and speak with confidence.

What is the best solution if I’m missing several or all of my teeth?

If you are missing several or all of your teeth, your dentist may recommend a dental bridge secured by dental implants or dentures secured by dental implants. A dental bridge is often used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Dentures can be secured using strategically placed dental implants if you are missing a full set of teeth. Both options provide a patient with more structural support for the jaw and bite and require less maintenance.

Do I Qualify for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are for people who are missing one tooth or who are missing several or all their teeth. Dental implants are for patients who are healthy overall and have healthy bone structure whether they are young or old. Dr. Farzin also provides gum and bone grafting for patients who have advanced periodontitis and require additional treatments before receiving their dental implants.

How quickly can I get a replacement tooth?

After a thorough dental exam, Dr. Sarkarzadeh or Dr. Farzin will help to determine what your best missing tooth treatment option will be. After the dental implant surgery, the dental implant typically requires 3 to 6 months to fully integrate with the jaw bone before we can secure the permanent restoration.

Some patients may qualify for teeth in a day. This revolutionary procedure allows our dentists to remove needed teeth, place implants and secure a denture in just one visit to our dentist office. Teeth in a day require extensive pre-treatment planning and optimizing healthy bone tissue for lasting dental implants.

Do dental implants require special care?

Dental implants require no more maintenance or care than 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 Care at least twice a year for dental cleanings at their Rockville, MD dentist office. Regular and diligent oral hygiene should keep your dental implant(s) healthy for a lifetime of smiles.

Will I have to see a specialist?

No! Congressional Dental Care provides inclusive dental implant services all under our roof. Every step of the way, Dr. Sarkarzadeh or Dr. Farzin will monitor your procedure to ensure quality and cohesive care. Our dental care team will handle your insurance, consultation, surgery, recovery, and the bonding of the final restoration.

Do dental implants last?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing or decaying teeth. A major advantage of implants is that they are made of titanium, so they will never wear or decay. Good oral health care is needed to maintain the gums around implants to ensure that their lifespan is sustained, but the physical implants will never decay.

Does my insurance cover dental implants?

Each patient’s dental insurance is unique, and coverage will vary depending on the plan. We have trained in-house specialists who can answer many of your dental insurance questions. Not many dental insurance plans will cover dental implants. Some insurance plans will partially cover dental fabrication, such as the crown or the denture. The staff at our Rockville, MD dentist office will gladly file claims for all insurance companies to assist you in receiving your maximum benefits.

The patient is responsible for the cost of the treatment. We request payment for service at the time of treatment. Dr. Sarkarzadeh also offers convenient financing for your dental implants with Care Credit. Qualified patients can establish a monthly payment plan with low or no-interest healthcare loans.
