Come see Zahid Ahmed DDS for a free consultation. We obtain initial diagnostic information including x-rays and present you with your options. We will review your goals and desires, and see if new teeth using the All on Four treatment protocol is right for you. We will review the entire process and ensure all your questions are answered. Following your consultation, we will provide you with a list of your options including fee estimates. This report outlines the pros and cons for the procedure so you can make an informed decision about your oral health. It will also include financial options and an outline of payment plans should you need them. Many patients take advantage of the payment plan solutions offered by Lending Club.
While most surgery is done in the Oakland office, Dr. Ahmed also partners with top Oral Surgeons and Expert Lab Technicians to provide your care in a carefully coordinate team approach. This ensures that each member of your team is the highest qualified person to deliver you the best smile possible. We are trained in the Teeth in a Day protocol. Their primary Oral Surgery partners are located in San Francisco and Walnut Creek for your convenience.
Your big day is coordinated with You, the Doctors, Expert Lab Technician, and Support Staff. This Expert Team will make sure your comfortable for the procedure using sedation. Any remaining teeth will be removed and your implants will be placed. Your new teeth will the be fitted, polished, and secured to your jaw. This entire procedure is completed in just one day, and may take 4-6 hours depending on whether you are receiving one arch or two arches. Your healing progress after the procedure will be closely monitored.
While you will have enjoyed all the benefits of your new teeth, you will be fitted with an improved set of teeth after healing (approximately 4-6 months later). To achieve the absolute best results, your treatment will include the fabrication of a new, permanent set of teeth to be fitted to your implants. This is a stronger, titanium-reinforced, definitive set of teeth. We use premium quality teeth and acrylics which maximizes longevity giving you a more permanent smile. This step also allows you to make any minor modifications that you desire, such as tooth color and tooth size. This second step often skipped by others lacking attention to detail.
