Dental implants at A-Dental Center are a fixed replacement for missing teeth

Posted on: 2015-10-21

 

dental implant stages animationDr. 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.

 

Are Invisalign braces affordable?

Posted on: 2015-10-14

woman holding invisalign bracesDr. 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.

 

Can an erupted tooth lead to gum disease?

Posted on: 2015-10-07

 

gum disease pictureDr. 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.

 

The pros and cons of temporary dentures in Hollywood

Posted on: 2015-09-30

 

lady at the dentistDr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center knows what comes to mind when patients in the Hollywood area think of dentures. Dentures often make patients think about the false teeth their grandparents wore, and how unsightly and fake they were. They may also recall how they were never firmly in place and fell out at the most embarrassing times. However, those were dentures of the past. Dentures today are made much more durable with much better quality materials than in the past.


When it comes to having full dentures made, some patients will first wear temporary dentures. These temporary dentures are worn while men and women wait for their final restorations to be completed.

 

There are many pros and cons to temporary dentures in the Hollywood area. Temporary dentures are not made to fit as precisely as the final dentures, so patients may notice some slipping. This can be improved with adjustment and the use of dental adhesives. However, it can be important to have these temporary dentures for a number of reasons. They can help patients maintain their appearance and allow them to eat and speak properly. While they are not intended to last forever, they are durable enough to get patients through until their final restorations are completed and sent to the dental office from the laboratory.

 

If you reside in or around the Hollywood area and are interested in learning about full dentures and what to expect from your temporary dentures, contact Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat today to book a consultation appointment and evaluation to find out if you are a proper candidate for full dentures. We work closely with all of our patients to determine the best way to address their dental situations and find affordable, effective restorative techniques that fit their budget and lifestyle. Contact A-Dental Center and schedule your first visit. You can work closely with our team of professionals to learn about restorative solutions for tooth loss.

 

Can dental implant treatment be covered by dental insurance?

Posted on: 2015-09-23

 dental implant typesMissing teeth can negatively affect the smile in a variety of ways. It can affect the way patients speak, eat, and feel about the way they look. Missing teeth may also result in reduced oral health. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat encourages patients to restore their smiles with dental implants whenever possible.

 

The dental implant is a titanium rod that is made to act as the natural tooth root. It is put into the bone, and then during osseointegration the bone fuses to the implant, which holds it firmly in place – just as it would a natural tooth. On the top of the dental implant, Dr. places an abutment, which supports the dental crown that acts as the false tooth. There are some situations when a dental implant may be placed primarily to anchor a dental bridge or to stabilize dentures. The dental implant is incredibly versatile and can be used in a number of situations for our patients.

 

Many patients who are interested in dental implants may wonder if their treatment can be covered by dental insurance. In some cases, it can. However, this depends on the dental insurance plan you are enrolled with. Each company has its own policies in regards to restorations. Some insurance companies will cover, in part, all restorations, while some may only cover one type such as a denture. Our front office staff is well versed in applying for dental insurance reimbursements and can help patients determine if their insurance plan can reduce their out-of-pocket expenses. If you are interested in learning about your coverage, do not hesitate to bring your dental insurance card with you to your dental appointment to find out how we are able to help you afford the dental work you need for your smile!

If you live in the Hollywood area and are interested in dental implants, contact Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat today at A-Dental Center.

    I called A-dental on Tuesday 10/23 almost to tears with pain I was experiencing from one of my many cavaties. I knew I had cavaties because I had been to a different dentist who I just wasnt comfortable with. Anyways, right from the minute Edith answered the phone I knew I would be in good hands. I figured they would take me in either the day after or near future but she was able to squeeze me in right away.

    This place was amazing. I had an infected impacted wisdom tooth that was spreading to my head. The cost of the procedure to take this infected tooth out was too expensive for me and i didn't insurance and had to pay out of pocket. They worked with me on the cost so I could afford it. They didn't try and rob me of every nickel I had which a lot of other dental offices do. It was one of a few places I have been to where I felt like they actually cared more about my well being than money. The whole staff was incredibly nice and accomodating.

    I been going to Dr. Elzayat for years and he is just awesome. I was without dental insurance for a almost 2 years, so when I finally got it, I had about a total of 7 fillings to be done, but all were painless. He even calls to check up on you later that evening to make sure you aren't having any problems or in any pain. Dr Elzayat and all staff you rock!
