A significant amount of time and planning may go into your decision whether to improve your smile with dental implants. It is essential that you put the same thought into choosing an implant dentist, as well.

Four Key Factors to Consider When Choosing an Implant Dentist
The following are factors that patients should look for when choosing a dental implant dentist:
What Is the Dentist’s Level of Experience?
It is important to note that any general dentist can call themselves an implant dentist and offer dental implant surgery. This creates challenges for patients who are looking for dentists with the skills and credentials needed to perform precise and safe implant surgery. Choosing a doctor with the best credentials is crucial for increased precision and better treatment recommendations. An educated and experienced dentist is more likely to have familiarity with dental implant techniques that increase comfort levels and ensure efficiency than a dentist who lacks implant credentials.
Dr. Pourshirazi completed his Masters of Oral Implantology at the prestigious Goethe University in Germany after graduating from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA, with a degree in Biology. He also earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. He has made it his life work to master the skills necessary to perform countless successful dental implant surgeries.
What Type of Sedation Options Are Provided?
We understand that oral surgery is often a stressful experience for patients. Calming your nerves while ensuring your absolute comfort is a priority for us at Guaranteed Dental Solutions. In addition to local anesthesia, we provide oral conscious sedation and IV conscious sedation.
Do They Offer the Latest Dental Technology?
We use a state-of-the-art 3-D cone beam scanner to select the most ideal location for dental implants. This accuracy improves implant longevity, which means greater value for the patient. Precise implant location can also reduce the chance of implant failure and other complications.
Our advanced technology assists us in developing an individualized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs in order to provide desired outcomes. With it, we will include an approximate time estimate for the length of your treatment.
Is Financing Available?
While some insurance companies will cover implant procedures or a portion of the treatment plan, that is not always the case. Our knowledgeable insurance experts will review your plan in order to maximize your benefits. We are proud to offer CareCredit® or Springstone® to provide affordable monthly payment plans designed to fit your budget so you can receive the dental care you so desperately need.
