with Ahmad Eslami, DMD, MS
When meeting Dr. Eslami, you will discover his broad knowledge, but more importantly his passionate, caring nature. He wants all patients to have a successful implant experience start to finish.
In terms of his credentials, Dr. Eslami:
Has extensive advanced training and experience in multiple implant systems, computer-guided implant surgery, bone augmentation, sinus lifts, and Cone Beam 3D imaging
Is the recipient of many honors and awards in the U.S. and abroad, including the Wisconsin Dental Association’s Pyramid of Pride award for “Mentor of the Year”.
For years, Dr. Sandvick and Associates patients have travelled to West Allis to seek out care from Dr. Eslami, and we are excited to now offer full implant services right in our Glendale clinic. We are able to incorporate a "team approach" where patients can see both Dr. Eslami and their general dentist together to create a plan for their implant procedure and dental restoration.
A comfortable experience: Dr. Eslami is very experienced in gentle forms of sedation to make the procedure comfortable for the patient. He also employs state of the art techniques to speed the healing process and restore the mouth to full function and health.
When considering dental implants as a solution to a missing tooth or teeth, it is important to have a basic understanding of the implant procedure. This understanding also highlights the benefits of dental implants.
An implant is made of three equally important pieces: the titanium implant, the abutment, and the crown. In the first step of the procedure, the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. After placement, the titanium implant begins to fuse with the jaw bone. This creates a connection between jaw and implant very similar to that between jaw and a natural tooth. The next step is to fit the abutment over the part of the implant that is exposed above the gum line. Finally, the crown, the piece that looks like a natural tooth, is placed over the abutment.
