The Invisalign® system uses custom sets of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into position, without anyone knowing! During your initial consultation, we will take digital impressions of your teeth to help us craft a treatment plan specifically for you. The impressions will be used to create your first sets of aligner trays, and you will receive a new set every two weeks that will consistently put slight pressure on your teeth to shift them into proper alignment. Every six weeks or so you will visit our office for a quick check-up and assessment.

Your Invisalign® trays can be easily removed for cleaning, eating, or social events. It is recommended that you wear your aligners for 23 hours a day for an efficient treatment. Wear time can last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years, depending on the severity of your case. The result is a beautiful, perfectly aligned smile you’ll want to share with confidence.

INVISALIGN® ORTHODONTICS
Living with a crooked smile not only causes patients to feel self-conscious, misalignment can negatively impact oral health as well.

THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN®

SEDATION DENTISTRY (https://goo.gl/r9hs6m)

Are you one of the millions of people who get restless and apprehensive just thinking about your upcoming dental appointment? Glow Dental Spa believes that by providing patients with advanced, high-quality dental services in a relaxing, luxurious, spa-like setting, we can help to reduce dental anxiety and make the dental experience more pleasant and comfortable, in general. However, for patients who additional help to relax, we offer safe, effective sedation dentistry at our Wayne dental spa. Dental sedation allows our patients to leave their fears behind as they drift peacefully through a deeply relaxed state.

NITROUS OXIDE
Although there are other forms of dental sedation, our Wayne dental spa uses nitrous oxide which we believe to be the safest, most effective type. Nitrous oxide is the most time-tested of all forms of sedation dentistry, and it allows patients to be responsive throughout their procedures.

Commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is administered through inhalation, generally eliminating worry and nervousness and making patients feel “out of it.” Patients remain conscious throughout the entire procedure and may even drift in and out of dreams. The amount of nitrous oxide that you receive will be determined by our medical professionals prior to treatment, and your vital signs will be monitored during your dental treatment. Although Dr. Ahkami requires you to be driven home by a family member or friend after your procedure, once the effects of nitrous oxide wear off, you will feel perfectly normal. Nitrous oxide can be used on children, teens, adults, and the elderly.

ADVANTAGES OF SEDATION DENTISTRY
Complex dental procedures are made less stressful and can be performed more easily if sedation dentistry is used. Not only does sedation dentistry at our Wayne dental spa help patients relax, it allows our dental staff to perform a procedure more efficiently because patients tend to be more cooperative and less tense. Often, sedation dentistry also enables us to perform multiple complex general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures in a single appointment.

The form of sedation that our team utilizes allows patients to remain conscious and able to respond to stimuli during their appointments while helping them to be oblivious to those things responsible for their dental anxiety. While a patient is under the influence of the sedative agent, he or she will be able to easily communicate with our dental professionals, ensuring his or her comfort, safety, and satisfaction.

CANDIDATES FOR SEDATION DENTISTRY
You may be an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry at our Wayne dental spa if you are in good health, and you:
-Become anxious easily
-Suffer from a dental phobia
-Experience anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist
-Have an acute fear of pain or the dentist
-Have had a traumatic experience in your past during a dental appointment
-Have difficulty getting numb
-Have a strong gag reflex
-Need extensive dental work completed in order to restore your oral health

CONTACT OUR RENOWNED COSMETIC DENTIST TODAY!
If anxiety has kept you from receiving the dental care you need to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile, then contact Glow Dental Spa today. No matter what your dental needs are, you can rest assured, your smile will be in excellent hands.

DENTAL IMPLANTS (https://goo.gl/VN6kUS)

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dr. Behshad Ahkami utilizes numerous types of dental implants in Wayne to meet the needs of each individual patient. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ahkami will discuss the type of dental implants to use that will best treat your specific circumstance prior to beginning the dental implant procedure.

MINI-DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dr. Behshad Ahkami has the ability to replace missing teeth in a fraction of the time with the use of mini-dental implants. Mini implants are similar to conventional dental implants however the entire process can be completed in just one office visit. Mini implants help stabilize dentures for patients that are not suitable for other forms of dental implants.

MULTI-TOOTH DENTAL IMPLANTS
Multi-tooth dental implants are used when more than one tooth is missing. The implants serve as a foundation for dentures or dental bridges, when a patient is missing multiple teeth in the same area of the mouth.

The best candidates for multi-tooth dental implant treatment are patients with multiple missing teeth in the same location of the mouth. Prior to any oral surgery, the patient must be in great health and not have any medical issues that would prevent the oral surgery from proceeding.

Multi-tooth dental implants are usually considered the most cost-effective implants as opposed to single tooth dental implant treatments.

SINGLE TOOTH DENTAL IMPLANTS
There are two common treatment options for a single missing tooth, a tooth supported bridge and a dental implant supporting a crown. A single-tooth dental implant describes the placement of a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth without affecting the health of the neighboring teeth. A single implant replaces the tooth root which helps preserve the bone so in the long term, a single dental implant is the optimal choice in the replacement of a missing tooth. Single tooth dental implants flawlessly blend in with your natural teeth.

DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE
Dental implants act as tiny anchors to hold the replacement teeth in place, and essentially take place of the natural root. Dr. Ahkami and his team at Glow Dental Spa, will determine what types of dental implants are ideal for your circumstances.

STEP ONE: AN ASSESSMENT BY DR. AHKAMI
Dr. Ahkami must first assess your dental health and determine the best course of treatment for your particular situation prior to beginning the dental implant procedure. Not all patients are great prospects for the dental implant procedure due to gum recession, bone density issues, or other health related matters, so it is important to meet with Dr. Ahkami prior to oral surgery.

STEP TWO: ORAL SURGERY TO POSITION THE DENTAL IMPLANTS
The following step in the dental implant procedure is the oral surgery. This step includes positioning of the dental implants into the bone in the area of the missing tooth so that the bone can grow and heal around the implant creating an anchor for replacement tooth. After the surgery, a temporary denture, dental bridge, or dental crown is worn while the bone and gums heal completely.

STEP THREE: POST-SURGICAL REHABILITATION
For the first six months following the oral surgery, the dental implants are left untouched so the bone can grow around the implant during the healing process. The jawbone and gum tissue then forms around your dental implant, keeping the dental implant in position just like a normal tooth root. Patients often tell us they do not experience many, if any, disruptions in their daily life.

STEP FOUR: POSITIONING THE DENTAL RESTORATION
Once the dental implant have completely healed and integrated within the jawbone and gum tissue, a long-term dental restoration will then be attached to a post that is secured to the anchor of the dental implant. To effortlessly improve your smile, dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures will be custom-designed to meet your personal needs.

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY (https://goo.gl/JKmk1o)

At Glow Dental Spa, our goal is to provide you with the tools you need to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile that will last a lifetime. If the condition of your teeth and gums is less than optimal, we can help. Structural damage to your teeth can cause irrevocable damage to your gums, jawbone, and surrounding healthy teeth. If your smile is affected by decaying, fractured, broken, warped, worn down, or otherwise damaged teeth, then you could greatly benefit from our restorative dentistry services. Proudly serving Wayne for well over a decade, Dr. Behshad Ahkami is committed to restoring function, health, and beauty to the smiles of his patients.

DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES
We provide life-changing, long-lasting solutions for patients who are displeased with their smiles. No matter the extent to which your smile is damaged, Dr. Ahkami can restore its balance, vitality, and function. Among our many restorative options, dental crowns are used to protect structurally flawed teeth after any damaged portions have been removed, while a dental bridge is designed to fill the gap created by one or missing teeth. For the convenience of our patients, our CEREC® machine allows us to custom-craft beautiful, durable restorations in-office while they wait. Through restorative dentistry, we can transform your smile into the gorgeous, flawless work of beauty you deserve.

DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants offer the most durable, stable, and long-lasting solution for missing or heavily damaged teeth currently available. Titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone, dental implants replicate the roots of missing teeth and provide unwavering support for crowns, bridges, and even full sets of dentures. Patients who choose to undergo the surgical procedure are given 800 milligrams of prescription ibuprofen, and conscious oral sedation (nitrous oxide) can be used if necessary. Dr. Ahkami’s versatility allows him to perform all stages of the dental implant procedure, from the initial oral surgery to the design and attachment of the custom-made restoration. Our ability to perform the entire procedure in-house further sets our restorative dentistry practice apart from many others in Wayne.

DENTAL BONDING
Dental bonding is a restorative dentistry technique our Wayne dentist uses to repair decayed, cracked, or chipped portions of your teeth as well as close spaces between teeth, alter the shape of teeth, and improve the appearance of discolored teeth. The composite bonding material can sometimes even be used to shield exposed tooth roots when gums recede. Dr. Ahkami uses only the most natural-looking composite materials so that your enhanced teeth blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. The results of dental bonding can last for years as long as you maintain good oral hygiene habits and refrain from chewing your nails, ice, or other hard objects.

DENTURES
Dentures are used to provide patients who have suffered tooth loss with a fully functioning, natural-looking smile. All of our dentures are custom made to fit comfortably yet snugly. The precision we use in creating dentures ensures that you will benefit from a no-slip, tight grip alternative to ill-fitting, haphazardly made dentures. With dentures, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with ease and confidence once again. Our restorative dentistry experts in Wayne provide both partial and complete dentures, both of which can be attached to dental implants for improved stability and support.

COSMETIC DENTISTRY (https://goo.gl/uTHGvR)

COSMETIC DENTISTRY WAYNE
The cosmetic dentistry specialists of Glow Dental Spa in Wayne offer a comprehensive range of treatments designed to give you a strong, well-aligned bite and a healthy, beautiful smile, including Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and smile makeovers. After evaluating your teeth and gums and discussing your needs and goals, Dr. Behshad Ahkami will create a treatment plan that is ideally suited to you and your unique smile. However, Dr Ahkami believes in treating a person’s whole face and not just their smile. At Glow Dental we treat a person and not just their teeth. We listen to our patients and get to know them. By contacting Glow Dental Spa today, you will be taking the first step toward attaining the smile of your dreams.

INVISALIGN®
Invisalign® invisible braces can guide your teeth into proper alignment, which will vastly improve the health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, custom-crafted, removable aligners to gently but surely realign your teeth, in roughly the same amount of time that treatment with traditional braces would require. Invisalign® aligners are designed to snugly form to the curvature of your teeth, making them comfortable and convenient to wear. Because the aligners don’t use brackets and wires, they are removable, which makes eating, brushing, and flossing a breeze. You will emerge from treatment with a straighter, healthier smile and improved self-confidence.

PORCELAIN VENEERS
For more than a decade, Dr. Ahkami has been enhancing the smiles of his patients with porcelain veneers. These thin shells of custom-shaped porcelain can improve the size, shape, texture, and color of your teeth. Our cosmetic dentistry specialists in Wayne combine experience, precision, and their finely developed aesthetic sensibilities to create the most durable, natural-looking results possible. Often, we are able to fabricate stunning porcelain veneers at our state-of-the-art dental facility in Wayne while patients wait. We also offer Lumineers®, the ultra-thin alternative to traditional veneers that requires no removal of enamel to place. Whichever option you choose, you will end up with a radiant new smile that you will be proud to flash.

TEETH WHITENING
Thanks to the innovative Zoom!® teeth whitening system, you can instantly whiten your smile up to eight shades in a single visit to our luxurious dental office. Dr. Ahkami offers both in-office and at-home treatments that can help you achieve a more confident, captivating, and brilliant smile. All of our whitening systems require the use of custom trays that are designed to form to the contour of your teeth to minimize gum irritation and gum exposure to the whitening agent. Because our whitening treatments are doctor supervised and prescribed for your unique smile, you will experience more satisfying results than are possible with over-the-counter, harsh bleaching agents, which can actually cause irreversible damage to your teeth and gums. Although most patients are suitable candidates for teeth whitening, age and lifestyle habits do have a significant effect on the success of treatment.

SMILE MAKEOVER
Our advanced technology allows us the opportunity to provide patients with a comprehensive selection of services that are less invasive, less painful, and less time consuming while being safer, more effective, and more convenient. In addition to enhancing your experience at our cosmetic dentistry facility in Wayne, our technology makes combining multiple procedures possible. If you are looking for a way to correct your bite, improve the appearance of your smile, and alter the shape of your teeth and gums, then a smile makeover may be ideal for you. In the compassionate, comforting environment of our dental spa, a customized smile makeover plan can help to take your confidence to a whole new level.
