Dr. Imam, Dr Khan and their team understand how dental health influences overall health, and are aware of its link to many serious medical conditions. Likewise, they want to maintain your emotional wellness with beautiful restorative or cosmetic procedures. They understand the vital role your smile plays in overall appearance and in how you feel about yourself.
The team also gets great joy from maintaining biologic health for the entire family. It’s strongly encouraged that children accompany you during your scheduled visits, so they become familiar with the dentist and know what it takes to keep smiles beautiful and healthy at an early age.
While modern, aesthetic braces are suitable for busy moms and dads, orthodontic treatment is still associated with youth. Invisalign’s custom-fit, removable aligner trays are also suitable for teens because they are barely visible and can be removed for eating, cleaning, and special occasions. Advances in conventional orthodontics allow discreet straightening, and Dr. Khan offers modern functional orthodontic treatment for optimal health and your best smile.
Whitening and bleaching treatments prescribed by your dental professional are safe and well-tolerated. The Maine Center for Dental Medicine offers products applied chairside in the office. You see the full results of this light-activated whitening in a couple of days. Lasers help to accelerate the whitening process, and the technology minimizes unwanted side effects such as sensitivity. You may opt to control the whitening process from the comfort of your home, thanks to take-home trays customized to deliver a powerful whitening gel safely and uniformly across the teeth. Peak results are typically noticeable within 7 to 10 days.
Whitening is also considered the most popular treatment for seniors, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Older patients with otherwise healthy teeth may find themselves contending with stains and discoloration due to years of consuming richly colored foods and beverages, or from wear and tear resulting in enamel erosion. The underlying darker, softer layer can peek through. Deeper, internal discoloration and enamel erosion can be addressed with durable and beautiful porcelain veneers. The dental team places metal-free restorations. These biocompatible options can be used to replace worn fillings or veneers, dental inlays and onlays, or porcelain crowns can rebuild damaged areas.
If you have lost a tooth, it’s imperative to fill the gap quickly. The longer you go without a tooth, the greater the risks of suffering from the effects of destructive bone loss. Dr. Imam has additional years of advanced training in the preparation, design, and placement of dental implant-supported teeth. Get ready to be amazed by the satisfaction you get from eating, and the confidence you feel with what is widely considered the next best thing to healthy, natural tooth structure.
In Maine, many practices may boast of cosmetic dentistry services. While every licensed dentist who has graduated from an accredited dental school has some familiarity with these services, Dr. Imam and his team distinguish themselves with their biologic dentistry approach to all elective and restorative procedures. This is also demonstrated with the team’s advanced training in areas such as implant dentistry and temporomandibular joint-related disorders, and with the presence of an on-staff nutritional counselor.
