When a tooth becomes infected or is no longer able to comfortably fit inside the mouth, such as wisdom teeth, it is often necessary to remove the tooth altogether. Many patients shy away from this, but extraction can allow the mouth to heal completely and remain healthy far into the future. In many cases, implants are used to replace the unfit tooth following an extraction.
If you are facing a tooth extraction, it's natural to experience concern about the procedure and future dental implant. Our office has been excelling in tooth implant procedures for over 17 years and regularly performs our "Tooth in a Day" service. Rather than having to travel between multiple offices over a period of several months, you can have your tooth extracted and the implant put in all in a single day.

Preparing for Your Dental Implant
One of the biggest things that patients fear is pain. Our office understands this and places a high priority on your comfort throughout the procedure. We employ cutting-edge technology to keep you pain-free during and after your dental implant.
When you visit our office, we take the time to address your concerns and propose a treatment plan that we believe best meets your needs. Dental implants don't have to take months – that's why we have shortened the procedure at our office down to just one day!
No two patients are the same, which is why we offer a wide range of medications to make the implant process as seamless as possible. Techniques involving nitrous oxide, IV sedation, tranquilizers, and pain medications are available for all patients undergoing a dental implant procedure. Dr. Roya Mirkhan is passionate about giving her patients an unparalleled level of service they won't experience anywhere else.
After extracting the tooth, we then perform the bone graft and implant surgery to prepare your mouth for the new implant. Next, molds are taken and the implant crown is fabricated.
The healing process is extremely important to your well-being and we stay in close contact with each of our patients to ensure that their mouth is restored even better than it was before. Although a small amount of pain is to be expected after your surgery, it is nothing that cannot be taken care of with minimal pain relievers.
At Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center, it is our privilege to offer exceptional dental care each and every day. We have received numerous awards recognizing our skill and would be honored to give you the healthy smile you deserve.
