Djawdan Center for Implant & Restorative Dentistry

 When Christine, a 52-year-old florist from Washington, D.C., came to Dr. Djawdan’s office, she had several broken and missing teeth. She had avoided the dentist for years due to severe dental anxiety. It wasn’t until she broke her front tooth and was no longer able to hide her broken and missing teeth that she went online to find a solution. Christine said that she connected immediately with Dr. Djawdan’s patient care philosophy.

 Dr. Kian Djawdan has extensive experience in surgical and restorative implant dentistry. As one of fewer than 400 Diplomates of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID), he is considered an expert and boardcertified in dental implants. In addition, Dr. Djawdan is specially trained and licensed to offer IV sedation for the comfort of all patients who desire this service. He performs hundreds of implant and bone graft procedures per year, which has made him a leading expert in the field. He is also a faculty member for Advanced Dental Education Seminars, teaching Excellence in Aesthetics and Implant Dentistry.

A few days after our initial consultation, we restored Christine’s smile and confidence by replacing her hopeless and missing teeth with dental implants—using an immediate-function dental implant technique commonly referred to as “Teeth in a Day or All on 4.” Christine was back at work in just a few days sharing her new smile.

Q. Do dental implants hurt?

A. Not usually! Since the jawbones have few nerve endings, the placement of dental implants causes only minor surgical discomfort. Anesthesia and sedation are used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. The majority of my patients have this procedure done while they sleep. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable after the procedure than they had anticipated. They tell me, “I thought that was going to be so painful!” In my practice, most patients having even 8–14 dental implants at one time have very little pain. I use advanced technology to ensure precise and comfortable treatment for my patients.
