Dr. Naysan is featured on channel 12 news from Phoenix, Arizona and shares some tips on how to get the perfect celebrity smile with Pronamel.
For those of us who have to end up getting dentures, this can be an unfortunate thing to accept, but there is technology and there are methods in place that can make the process as comfortable as possible on you.
One of those comfortable ways to make the transition into a full mouth set of prosthetic teeth is to undergo the All-On-Four Dental Implant procedure, which Bedford Dental Group is proud to offer to our patients in Beverly Hills, CA and the greater Los Angeles area as well.
Below are 4 benefits you can glean from the All-On-Four procedure.
1.) All-On-Fours Are SECURE
One of the greatest benefits of the All-On-Four procedure is its anchorage. There are 4 points where implants are placed that secure the dental implants/dentures. Patients can then eat and speak as they normally would unhindered.
2.) All-On-Fours Are REALISTIC
After you have your biocompatible titanium implants in place and your prosthetics secure, All-On-Four implants look completely realistic.
3.) All-On-Fours PREVENT Future Bone Loss
When you lose your teeth, your jaw bone no longer gets the same amount of stimulation that it needs and begins to degenerate. All-On-Four implants provide bone stimulation that prevents future bone loss and keeps the shape of the jaw.
4.) All-On-Fours Can Be Done in ONE DAY
That’s right, All-On-Fours can be placed in one day — patients can now enjoy the aesthetic and functional benefits of a full set of teeth without having to wait.
If you have any lingering questions about how the All-On-Four procedure works and what you can do to get your All-On-Four process started, contact Bedford Dental Group today. We have a long track record of making big improvements in our patients self-confidence through providing compassionate oral health care.
The American Heart Association has just released a study that found that patients taking medication and undergoing treatment for high blood pressure were more likely to experience optimum benefits from their respective therapies if they were in good oral health standing.
The Inextricable Link Between Oral Health and Overall Health
This is yet another study suggesting the link between good oral health and good overall health. Having healthy teeth and healthy gums is simply better for your health than living with tooth decay and periodontal disease.
More on the Study
Over 3,600 people were studied who had high blood pressure, some with healthier gums, others who live with gum disease. The study found that people with periodontal disease had a 20% higher chance of failing to reach healthy blood pressure ranges.
What This Means for Patients with High Blood Pressure
Simply put, if you have gum disease you’re likely going to have to have your blood pressure monitored more closely, which means more cost to you — both in time and in dollars spent at the doctor.
Experts are saying that oral health is just as important a factor as other lifestyle interventions like low-sodium diets, weight control, and living an active lifestyle.
Staying on top of your oral health is important for a number of reasons. Having healthy teeth and gums will help you maintain healthy blood pressure ranges if you’re trying to control high blood pressure, but maintaining your oral health over your life can help you avoid being in that situation later in life to begin with.

Oral health news has been buzzing as of late regarding the link between chronic gum disease and Alzheimer’s (AD).
Science Advances recently published a paper that has flooded news feeds about how researchers are identifying Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) in patients with Alzheimer’s.
Researcher Jan Potempa, Ph.D., from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry’s Department of Oral Immunology and Infectious Diseases, ran point as part of a team of international scientists. The study was put on by privately-held, clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, Cortexyme Inc. and linked Pg, a bacterium that is commonly associated with chronic gum disease, to AD.
More on Gum Disease
Periodontitis (also known as gum disease) affects nearly 9% of American adults between 20-64 according to data collected by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
Oral Pg infection is being shown to lead to bacterial brain colonization, not to mention increased production of amyloid beta (Aβ), which is a component of amyloid plaques that have been associated with Alzheimer’s.
What You Can Do to Reduce Your Chances of AD
Although these findings do not necessarily mean that gum disease is a direct cause of Alzheimer’s, it’s still a good idea to be aware of this new information and use it as a springboard for living a life of good oral health.
Bacteria that invade through your mouth can cause the kind of neuroinflammation and buildup that can cause a number of health problems — Alzheimer’s now included.
By keeping your annual checkups you’ll be able to enjoy a healthy, sparkling smile, but you’ll also be able to live with the sort of peace of mind that comes along with staying on top of a rigorous health and wellness routine.
Bedford Dental Group is here for any treatments and procedures our patients need, from routine cleanings, annual checkups, to orthodontics and cosmetic treatments that help patients achieve a smile that really has that “wow” factor. As we keep learning from study after study, keeping your teeth and gums healthy has more than just aesthetic benefits. It’s good for your overall health as well. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Just like its name implies, the Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedure is an intricate process. Full Mouth Reconstructions can entail rebuilding, repairing, or replacing all or a vast majority of teeth in a patient’s mouth.
The idea behind the Full Mouth Reconstruction is to utilize cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques in order to improve the patient’s oral health, their functionality, and enhance the beauty of their smile.
The Bedford Dental Group Difference
At Bedford Dental Group our philosophy is to serve our patients by giving them the best possible treatment, which lays the foundation for a healthy smile and a healthy life. We’re in the business of improving the confidence of our patients, and we custom tailor our Full Mouth Reconstruction procedures to meet the needs of each individual patient. No two smiles are the same, so this means that no two Full Mouth Reconstruction treatments are the same.
What a Typical Full Mouth Reconstruction Entails
Successful Full Mouth Reconstructions require unique artistry and vision. The procedure can address issues like tooth decay, bite and jaw misalignment, dental trauma, as well as chipped, broken, fractured, and/or worn teeth.
If you need a dramatic smile improvement, this is the procedure for you.
What to Expect from a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Your Full Mouth Reconstruction will include a comprehensive consultation, where we’ll provide a thorough examination to get an idea of your smile’s condition. Through blueprints and models we’ll give you an idea of the targeted end result before we start.
The procedure might also entail the implementation of oral appliances. This might mean dental implants, porcelain veneers, inlays and onlays that align the jaw, and more. Treatment can be ongoing, sometimes taking more than a few months to reach desired results. It all depends on the patient’s condition.
We provide extensive, comprehensive follow-up care, too. Too many oral health practitioners have an out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality when it comes to their patients. We see our treatments through past the end result and we treat our patients with sincerity and care, always.
Contact Bedford Dental Group today to learn more about our Full Mouth Reconstruction treatment. We work hard and tirelessly to help our patients smile freely and confidently.
