Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley CA
If you are looking for a general dentist in Scotts Valley, a simple online search may leave you wondering how to choose one of the best dentists around town. To help narrow your search, it’s good to have an understanding of what a dentist offers before making an appointment. This way, you can ensure their services fit your immediate and long-term oral health needs. That said, if you’re looking for dental care in Los Gatos, or need to schedule an emergency dental appointment in Santa Cruz, here are some of the most commonly performed services at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry.
Installed by a well-trained and experienced dentist, a crown can save a tooth, even if it has been damaged significantly by decay or an injury. At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, we offer metal-free crowns that can be made in a single visit through our state-of-the-art CEREC CAD/CAM technology system. A crown is as durable as the exterior of a real tooth. It also may be placed after a root canal or as the final step of dental implant placement.
Living with lost teeth? “Bridge” the gap by receiving a dental bridge, which looks like three or more dental crowns fused together. One either end of the single unit are dental crowns that fit securely over your existing teeth on either side of the space in your mouth. In the middle of the unit is what we call a pontic or an artificial tooth. Once secured into place, a dental bridge looks completely natural. The replacement teeth in a bridge are made with the same beautiful dental porcelain used to fabricate our crowns. That means your bridge will be matched to the shape and color of the surrounding natural teeth.
Looking for the longest-lasting means of replacing a missing tooth? The answer is a dental implant. Not only is an implant virtually permanent, but it’s also the only tooth replacement option that addresses the missing tooth root. Without the constant stimulation that your tooth root provides to the supporting bone structure, that portion of the jawbone eventually will begin to wither. Drs. Max and Ariana Ebrahimian have the experience in implant dentistry you want for such a procedure. Remember, the installation of the titanium implant screw itself is a type of oral surgery. Therefore, choosing an experienced dentist is crucial to the success of your implant procedure.
Did you know that half of all Americans over the age of 30 suffer from gum disease? Given these numbers, it’s no surprise that the treatment of gum disease is so common. Stemming from a bacterial infection of the gums, this disease can lead to a host of other problems, including tooth loss and even an elevated risk of cardiac disease. Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry can help you combat gum disease through modular periodontal therapy, a minimally invasive means of treatment that combines bacterial testing, medication, and at-home care.
No surprise here; after all, the American Dental Association recommends that each of us undergo a professional dental cleaning every six months. Even the most diligent regimen of brushing and flossing won’t completely clean your teeth. However, a professional dental cleaning will remove all the plaque and tartar from your teeth, freshen your breath, and help to prevent both cavities and gum disease.
