This is a nice example of basic treatment with dental implants that was well engineered. What you are looking at here are four dental implant molars that I placed in virtual 3-D. The implants are actually surgically placed in the bone but what I did was ‘overlay’ the implants that are actually there with the computerized virtual dental implants. This is done so that the exact position can be seen more easily and you can learn more from this article.

Before treatment…. patient already has one implant

Notice that all of the implant sizes maximize the available bone volume… The implants are not too small and they are not too large… Both of these can create problems. Also notice that each implant has plenty of bone on the outer wall which will support these implants for a long time and will greatly reduce the chance of ever having bone loss/peri-implantitis.

On the upper right notice there are two dental implants. A sinus bone graft was done in order to create enough height of bone to place these implants. The implants are placed against the medial wall for best trajectory but also avoiding the contents of the nose. Previously she was missing the second molar and the first molar had to be extracted due to periodontal bone loss.

Genetically, her sinuses hang down fairly low which would not allow implants of larger diameter and length to be placed. This is very important for the upper jaw in the back of the mouth. I also suggest that these implants be connected especially if the last two teeth are dental implants. You can clearly see the sinus bone graft over the top of the implants.

Teeth not on 3 of the implants yet. One of the implants in the upper was placed in eastern europe 20 years ago.

The lower molar dental implants are single tooth dental implants. The one on the left side of the screen is smaller and longer while the one on the right side of the screen is wider and shorter. Even though they are the same lower first molar the anatomy, each area is slightly different. Every tooth is planned in a unique manner.

This patient happens to be the wife of a dentist that I treated. I actually treat many doctors and dentists…. Even we need tooth replacements too!!

    Hi Doctor, I know it would be a long shot since this was an article few years ago but this is probably the most useful website for me right now.. I got my upper second molar and the wisdom tooth extracted together 4 months ago and in order words i got no teeth in the last region of area. Do I still need to do the implant for this situation? (since its not like there is a space between two teeth) Hope you can see this and Thanks!!

    Hi Doctor,

    I just wanted to thank you for responding to an email I sent a couple of months ago. Because of your help, I was able to make a well informed decision regarding this procedure. Have a good day?

    Dear Dr, about 4 months ago my maxillary second molar was extracted. I am 30 y.o. and have all my other teeth and am otherwise healthy. Financial considerations are fortunately not a problem for me but I’m worried about possible complications of getting an implant. I’ve read that bone in the area of the second maxillary molar can be too weak for an implant. Is it advisable to have an implant for this missing tooth or is it better to manage without it? Since having the tooth removed I’m very aware that a tooth is missing but I’m worried about possible complications of any surgery.

      The bone is in fact very song in this area. Operator technique and experience is going to be critical for having this tooth replaced. I would suggest the operator and use a compression technique to compress bone marrow rather than a drilling technique.

      Upper second molars can be very well done and last very long time. The longer and bigger the implant in this area, the better.

  4. Good day. My second given name is Bojan . I was on implant operation because opf three tooth 5,6,7 on my right side. I was in Dental Plaza in Belgrad Serbien. They on first sight sounded OK. So I talk on telephone what we will do . Solution was 2 implants and tief between conected. Naturally that bone is not to much under pressure. But they do it totaly something another. At When I was pictured that on rentgen later. Another Dentist show me picture. Obius is 2 implants putted to close on one side and another on other side but diffrent distance, which is normally not naturaly what it is. When I call Dental Plaza he told me God told him to do liek that. Question is how to correct this , since is brigde vesrion puted in my bones. Is it possible to put separate Tooth crone on every implant to be somehow equal? Or it must be pulled out and another implant putted in bone. Second question is : is it safe for my bone? Conclusion Dentist in Dental Plaza Belgrade purposly damage my bone, with knowledge that will be operate in future , if i wanted to have correct. Thanks , Sincerely Bojan Vujasinovic

      With all due respect it is a little difficult to understand your question due to a possible language barrier. It sounds like you had to dental implants put very close to one another. There is not a great solution for this besides removing one of the implants and starting over.

      I doubt God told him to do it like this.
      Sorry my friend

There aren't enough words (and I have a lot of words) to tell you how grateful I am to have found Dr. Ramsey Amin and his wonderful staff. I had an enormous amount of bone loss and I was hopeless after being treated by a different doctor for two years. I had multiple procedures such as gum graft, extractions, and a sinus lift. After all of that, the doctor released me and told me he could not help me any longer. He sent me to a large teaching hospital - who also had no idea how to help me. I was terrified and embarrassed. I had been missing teeth due to those procedures since 2017. That sent me out on a journey of meeting with no less than five different dentist/oral surgeons. Most of them shamed me for the bone loss and wondered what I had done to cause this. In reality, I had done nothing. The bone loss is my body's immune system fighting me, as well as hereditary traits. In fact not only was I having difficulty being able to have implants, I also had so much bone loss that I was also not a candidate for dentures. I researched "what to do when you have bone loss and can't get implants" and I found Dr. Amin's website. Then I researched him, read his reviews, watched every one of his You Tube videos. I called and got an appointment, and kept going to consultations with other providers. I had long since stopped smiling and being social. Missing teeth and the shaming was affecting my life so adversely. When I met with Dr. Amin for my consultation he was ready. He had all of my records and had already reviewed my scans. But more than that, he genuinely wanted to get to know about my life. He was/is authentic, kind and extremely professional with so much success and experience in difficult cases like mine. He worked up a treatment plan & I came back two weeks later to discuss my options...and the journey began. I have had three procedures under IV sedation, no pain, no narcotics needed for aftercare. Dr. Amin is a consumate, experienced oral surgeon who cares about your health & understands your fears. He communicates every step of the way and will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision to improve your health. I am still working toward my end goal, and we had to zig from traditional implants and zag to zygomatic implants instead...which is the reason I chose him in the first place. If there was nothing else that could be done to get me healthy & smiling again, I knew he would have that option to help me. And of course 2020, the year of CV-19. Don't worry, Dr. Amin & his staff follow all health & safety protocols. This review is long, because it is important you know my journey, so you might understand how fortunate I feel to be healing. I'm torn, because this place is like a great restaurant, I want to shout from the rooftops how great it is, how great he is. And at the same time, I want to keep this all to myself. I come 75 miles each way to see him. I know people travel from all over the world for his expertise. Do yourself a favor, have a consultation. You won't regret it. Dr. Amin is amazing and so is his staff.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Amin and his professional staff. I have to start off and say that I am absolutely TERRIFIED of the dentist due to several past experiences. I found myself putting this off for YEARS until I was referred over to Dr. Amin. I was petrified on my first visit... but he along with his WONDERFUL staff made me feel so calm and at ease. I had quite a bit of work that needed to be done, but we found the perfect plan that worked out for me, and I couldn't be happier. Words cannot express my gratitude to each and every staff member that made me feel safe and comfortable. Dr. Amin was always so attentive in asking if I was ever in pain... and I never was. These are truly remarkable individuals, and I'm so lucky to have a dentist that I can trust. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE each and every one of you! Thank you,

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Amin and his staff. I originally found them on Yelp about two years ago. I needed an implant, front tooth of all places, and was extremely nervous not only about surgery but about how it would turn out. Let me just say I just adore the staff. Everyone is crazy friendly and the whole office has a very positive vibe. The staff is adorable and always has me smiling by the time I leave. They are all thorough and on-point about what they do, and I truly appreciate it. They are quick to respond to my emails no matter the question, and their appointment reminders are great too. Dr. Amin is very thorough and reassuring, and answered any questions my husband or I had. My regular dentist had questions about the procedure and Dr. Amin's office even reached out to them at my request (my dentist said they never received a call, but Dr. Amin's staff had date, time and notes - love the thoroughness!). After surgery the Dr. called to leave me a message about how it went. Very minimal pain during healing, never any pain during any visits. It took a few tries to get everything just right for the permanent crown (color, etc), but the end result is beyond fantastic! At one point during healing I thought I was experiencing some looseness or wiggling but unfortunately couldn't make it to the office. When I was finally able to make it in the Dr. was so relieved, bless his heart. Luckily it was just a false alarm and everything checked out ok. They're a bit further out from me, but I wanted the best. I sure found it! I wish they were my regular dentist, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again for my check-up which was delayed due to COVID.

I found Dr. Amin a few years back after I hadn't been to a dentist in a decade. Many traumatic dental experiences in childhood have made me so phobic that even getting a cleaning was a knee-knocking, heart-pounding trial. But finally I couldn't put off some things any longer. During my first anesthesia session, Dr. Amin replaced five old metal fillings, and during the second he did three more plus a crown. I was completely comfortable, and never felt a thing. Because they were extra-long sessions, I did sleep for about 12 hours after, but the next day I felt just fine. This past week, my back top tooth cracked in half and fell out of my mouth, and a couple days later the crown on the remainder of the tooth fell out too! Despite being nervous about Covid 19, I had to get it taken care of, so I called and quizzed the staff about precautions, which turned out to be even above and beyond what I would have expected. So yesterday I went for the tooth extraction and plug. After they put on the blood pressure cuff and put in the IV, I gradually got a little tired and closed my eyes. I sat there for about 10 minutes and thought Gee, I wonder if they're going to get started any time soon, and a minute later Dr. Amin said "Wake up, you're all done!" That was a short session, and I didn't have the kind of fatigue I did my first time. I stayed up most of the evening. Today, everything is good! I'm taking my antibiotic and eating soft foods, and there is surprisingly little pain now that the numbness has worn off. The tooth site and my cheek are a little sore, and the corner of my mouth, and I have a very slight headache, but nothing to any great level--I'm not even taking the acetaminophen. I feel good, and wide awake. Thanks to everyone at the office for a comfortable and professional job! I really REALLY appreciate you for giving me painless dental experiences!

What can I say about Dr. Amin he is the best! I'm so grateful for him. He has literally changed my life and given me the confidence to smile more. I had major restorative dental work done and everything went smoothly. Dr. Amin is very compassionate and he really cares about his patients he made me feel comfortable and cared for. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. His office is very clean and they take the patients health and safety very serious. His staff is also amazing they made me feel very welcomed and important. I'm so happy I did my research and found Dr. Amin.  Thank you Dr. Amin and team.

Two implants done! Finished all procedures and I couldn't be happier. It's the first time in years I looked forward to going to the dentist. Even during Covid life the staff and Dr. Amin took care of me. There is a possibility I may move to Long Beach but I would still travel to keep Dr. Amin as my dentist.

I could not ask for a more caring, exceptionally knowledgeable dental care provider. He's not just a dentist, but someone who looks after your immediate dental needs and helps you plan and prepare for the future.

I've been going to Dr. Amin since I turned 16 and have been going since. Before going to Dr. Amin's dental office, I had 4 crowns that I was not happy with and dealt with it until finally I asked Dr. Amin and because I  feel comfortable and because I trust him with his work I recently had my crowns fixed and worked on by  Dr. Amin and have never loved my smile the way I do now, I can actually enjoy my pictures, I can enjoy my smile from either angle and that really mattered to me. Thank you so much Dr. Amin still and will be in love with MY smile

I've been coming to Dr. Ramsey for about five years and I have to say, he is by far the best dentist I've had - ever. The staff is professional and kind, the office is exceptionally well maintained, and Dr. Ramsey is careful and extremely knowledgeable about current developments and research in dentistry. I recently had a dental implant which was a long process but well worth it. I required a sinus lift as well as a bone graft. The surgery went off without a hitch, I was comfortable and the healing process was quick and without complication. Highly recommend!!

This is my 1st review of Dr. Amin, and in my over 17 years of being with him, my experiences with Dr. Amin and his staff have always been positive.  I don't recall a bad experience with the several implant procedures i have had.  They run an efficient office.  I like that they are proactive and reach out to their patients to remind us of routine care needed.  Dr. Amin's bedside care is impeccable.  They are also technologically up to date in terms of sending out texts as reminders, ability to incorporate any appointment into your mobile phone.  That is certainly a plus.  Keep up the great care!!!
