If you’ve never had a toothache, you would be amazed how something so small can hurt so much. If you experience a toothache, it is an indication of a problem, and you should make an appointment with your dentist right away. Even a simple problem may become more severe if ignored for too long, leading to more intense pain or more costly dental repairs. Our patients are welcomed and treated with respect and compassion for any dental care needs. If you are in pain, rest assured that we will make your visit as comfortable as possible, and we want to dispel any fears when seeking dental treatment. When you come to us, we will use our extensive knowledge and experience to ascertain the source of your pain and determine how best to treat it.
Sometimes a toothache is a simple issue that is resolved quickly and easily with a tooth filling. Not all dental practices are the same though, and we want to help you in understanding that the use of metal-free fillings is a conscious and important choice we’ve made for the benefit of our patients. We use only composite, metal-free fillings for a number of reasons. Research results have indicated that composite material is safer for the body. It also adheres better to a prepared tooth surface to provide a more durable filling. Composite material offers more appealing aesthetics also, since the color blends with the color of your tooth. The result is a more pleasing and natural-looking smile.
A tooth to be filled will be drilled and cleaned of any decay, and the filling is then placed to seal out further harmful bacteria from entering the tooth structure. If a tooth that has previously been filled is a source of pain, the dentist will examine it to ensure that the filling is intact. Another problem could be pain that radiates from a patient’s bite alignment. In this scenario, an area of a tooth needs to be adjusted where it contacts the surface of another tooth. A filling or cavity could also exist close to the pulp of a tooth, and this may cause the tooth to be more sensitive and painful.
If you live or work in or around the North Hollywood area, Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat and the A-Dental Center staff invite you to trust their expertise to resolve your dental concerns. Call and schedule an appointment for your next routine dental visit, or contact us to diagnose and treat any dental pain or issue. We look forward to being your trusted dental care practice in every situation.
As a child if you needed braces but never got them, you may now find that as an adult your smile is not as beautiful as you would like it to be. Even a little bit of crowding or a few crooked teeth can affect self-esteem, leading to loss of confidence in other areas of your personal and professional life. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center explains how Invisalign adult braces can help you.
While you may be willing to invest in improving your smile, there may be concerns over the appearance and comfort of traditional wire and metal braces, how long you might have to wear them, and how much of a hassle it will be to maintain them. Your life is busy. Life is fast-paced. Your spare time is almost non-existent. However, life is competitive too, and looking and feeling your best can be essential to success. The Invisalign System is a clear braces system that offers you, as an adult, a comfortable and efficient solution if you are in need of mild to moderate orthodontic corrections.
The Invisalign System is beneficial because it will allow you to achieve improvements to dental flaws through utilization of an aligner that is virtually unnoticeable. The system also saves a considerable amount of time because it eliminates many trips to an orthodontist’s office for adjustments, and you do not need to visit any outside specialists. Dr. Edmond will oversee the entire improvement process from start to finish. He will first consult with you to determine if Invisalign is right for your particular needs. Together, you will discuss the desired results and evaluate that against your present appearance. He will then order a series of alignment trays to be manufactured specifically for you. You will be supplied with a treatment plan to change the trays out at specified time intervals to make progressive changes in the alignment of your teeth.
Invisalign is ideal for many adults in need of braces because of the outstanding benefits such as discreet treatment, convenience, and results. The aligner trays are particularly desirable because they are simply removed when eating and drinking. This also allows complete access to teeth and gums so that the patient is able to practice an efficient oral hygiene routine. The cost of the Invisalign System is comparable to metal braces, but patients find them to have many more benefits, including being far more comfortable and convenient. Call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Elzayat and his staff at A-Dental Center and find out how Invisalign Adult Braces can reshape your smile to be dazzling and confident.
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center offers patients in and around North Hollywood, CA, a fixed replacement for missing teeth. There are multiple choices for replacement of missing teeth, but traditional appliances such as dentures and partials can be troublesome. These often slip or become loose, making them feel unnatural to the wearer. Dental implants provide a more stable and permanent solution.
Interested patients will be given a consultation and examination by Dr. Edmond to ascertain that dental implants are their best option. Undergoing an implant procedure for one or multiple teeth is a relatively simple process, and is completed entirely at A-Dental Center. The doctor and his staff put their extensive training into practice to ensure the patient has a comfortable and pain-free experience. Once placed, implants provide patients with satisfaction and beauty for a lifetime, much like healthy, natural teeth would.
X-rays are used to determine that the bone to support the implants is healthy. The posts, made of titanium, are surgically implanted into optimal locations in the bone. Over time, the bone will bond with the posts, which forms a stable foundation for the crowns, bridges, or dentures that will be attached. While these replacements are designed to individual specifications, a patient is supplied with temporaries, so they are never without teeth. When the patient returns, the dentist secures the permanent teeth in place over the posts.
While a benefit is that they look and function much like a person’s natural teeth, implants also provide bone stimulation, which prompts it to continue regeneration. They act as a replacement for the root that a natural tooth would have, providing the patient with increased bone retention over time. Implants also allow unaffected natural teeth to be left intact. This is the best option, when possible, to the overall dental health of our valued patients. Dr. Edmond gives specialized attention to the appearance and position of each replacement to ensure the smile is stunning.
Schedule an appointment to find out how your most attractive smile may be maintained or fully restored. Our dental professionals will take the time to answer any questions and calm any concerns regarding teeth replacement choices. Contact A-Dental Center today and discover the ideal solutions for your preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental needs.
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat is proud to provide orthodontic treatments, which can avoid referrals to an orthodontist for mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth. He is especially excited to offer an innovative method that does not involve the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. This method is known as Invisalign.
Instead of using wires and brackets to reposition teeth like conventional braces, Invisalign uses a series of aligner trays. These trays are made of clear acrylic and are worn over the dental arch day and night to move the teeth gently into alignment. Each tray is worn for two weeks by the patient before the next one is worn, and the entire treatment moves along the series of trays. By the end of the treatment, patients will have better alignment and can use their final tray as a retainer to wear at night and keep the teeth in their permanent positions!
Patients who are interested in learning about Invisalign are often worried about the cost. Are Invisalign braces affordable? For many patients, they can be. They are comparable in cost with traditional braces, yet have the benefit of being more discreet. Our practice works with patients to first determine if their dental insurance provides coverage for Invisalign treatment. Some dental insurance companies have orthodontic coverage, and can help greatly reduce the out-of-pocket expenses associated with orthodontics. Even if there are out-of-pocket costs for Invisalign, here at A-Dental Center, we can offer a payment plan to make treatment attainable for even the tightest of budgets.
Don’t let the cost of Invisalign braces stop you from finding out if you are a candidate for treatment. We can arrange a financial package to make them attainable. Contact A-Dental Center today and make an appointment.
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat is the leading dentist at A-Dental Center in Hollywood. His primary goal is to help patients obtain and maintain a healthy smile. This can be done with proper dental care and regular appointments with his team of professionals. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat works closely with patients to develop a treatment plan for their smiles and to ensure they are free from problems such as decay and periodontal disease.
After we lose our “baby teeth,” our permanent teeth erupt. An erupted tooth needs to be properly cared for. It can last a lifetime if patients take the time to maintain their oral health and wellness. If patients do not maintain good oral hygiene practices, they may notice that their erupted tooth can lead to decay and disease.
An erupted tooth can lead to gum disease if it is not brushed and flossed every day. Additionally, it is essential that patients maintain regular recall appointments twice a year with Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat to check for the early indications that decay or disease has developed. The earlier these conditions are caught, the easier it is to address them before they become a serious problem.
If an erupted tooth has developed gum disease, it is important to seek treatment through A-Dental Center. A thorough cleaning may be needed to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the gums and tooth’s surfaces. If decay is noticed, it must be addressed with fillings. Patients must then work with their dentist to discuss proper maintenance of the smile to ensure they enjoy optimal oral health from here on out!
Erupted teeth need to be taken care of so they can last a lifetime as intended. If you are dealing with problems regarding your smile, now is a wonderful time to work with A-Dental Center and Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat to learn about the advantages of proper oral health care with a dental team that is committed to your dental health and wellbeing.
