After having lost considerable trust as a result of prior experience (quality of execution, surprise fees, billing, attitude, office staff) with area dental offices, it was with reluctance that I scheduled a meeting with the doctor immediately at ease as a result of his easygoing, personal approach, I initiated four procedures--two of which were cosmetic--and could not be more pleased. In fact, I cannot remember having felt such tremendous satisfaction upon concluding dental treatment. Dr. Rizvi's chair side manner and concern for patient comfort; his orientation to and focus on dental artistry; the exceptional quality of his workmanship and the friendly and accommodating staff combine to create an overwhelmingly positive experience. For restoring both my trust AND my smile, a HUGE thank you to Dr. "Riz" and the staff!

Bollinger Canyon Dental provides amazing service with reasonable prices! I've had fillings, root canals, and extractions done here and all their work is impressive. Dr. Rizvi and his staff are patient, kind, and provide you with anything to make your experience a warm one. I was referred here by a friend for a procedure that my regular dentist could not do and have since become a regular client! They are also very informative before and after every procedure and let you know what different options you may have. Thank you Bollinger Canyon Dental for all your hard work!!!

My visit was awesome. I was super impressed by everyone and especially Dr. Imran Rizivi. He is kind, considerate and a great dentist. I couldn't believe how hard he worked on my teeth and today, a day later, my mouth feels fine with no pain whatsoever. That is amazing considering the amount of work I had done- cavities, temporary crown and deep cleaning with a laser treatment. I was extremely fortunate to find Dr. Rizivi and his awesome staff. I would recommend Bollinger Canyon Dental to anyone who is interested.

"I saw this dentist today for a cleaning. The we girl who cleaned my teeth was very nice and gentle with me. The dentist then came in to see me and told me to make sure I brushed my tweth twice a day. My mommy said it was because he cared about my teeth and wasmaking sure he took care of me. I will see him again at my 6th month check up."

The office is modern, clean, professional. I particularly enjoy Dr. Rizvi's tooth whitening that he gives after the cleanings are over. It would be a pleasure to recommend Dr. Rizvi to everyone I know! :-)

Tips & Advices
Depending on the circumstances, there might not be a safe or effective alternative to dental implants that would not impact your health and quality of life. This is because healthy teeth are essential for maintaining a balanced diet and proper nutrition. In the case of a single tooth damaged from a cavity or infection, a dentist might opt to perform a root canal procedure to remove the infection while preserving the tooth itself. However, this operation often still requires replacing the top of the tooth with an implant known as a crown. In general, the best alternative to implants is preventing the need for them through proper oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing helps prevent tooth decay that can eventually lead to loss of teeth and other dental problems.
Start by looking into what is and is not covered under your health or dental insurance to understand and estimate costs. Then work with your primary dental care provider to understand treatment options and get recommendations for practitioners. You may also research oral and maxillofacial practices online.
Coverage of implant procedures varies depending on the specifics of your health or dental insurance. It may also depend on whether or not the implants are considered medically necessary as opposed to being an elective or cosmetic procedure. If you are a member of a Medicare health plan, most elective dental procedures are not covered. Medicare may cover some costs for procedures that involve dental surgery, like reconstruction of the jaw following an accidental injury or emergency surgery. Check with your health plan provider for information on how dental implant services are covered.
Full recovery from an implant procedure can take several weeks or months. Assuming the surgery is completed without any serious complications, patients are usually sent home within a day to recover. For the first day or two after surgery, patients are advised not to disturb the implant site or perform any kind of strenuous physical labor. Gauze pads will need to be periodically replaced to control bleeding for the first day or two. Pain medication to reduce discomfort and swelling is also prescribed for at least the first two weeks. Doctors will advise patients to avoid hard food, hot food or liquid, or use of a straw for the first days after the procedure. The best foods are purees and soups that require minimal chewing and can be eaten with a spoon. Patients may also need to rinse implant sites for a few days after surgery. Follow-up appointments within the first few weeks are often required to ensure recovery is progressing.
Those who perform dental implant procedures are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These physicians are generally certified as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) as well as one or more special degrees for dental surgery or osteopathic medicine. Becoming a dental surgeon requires at least 12 years of academic and professional training in the United States, and requires certification with the state medical board. A general dentist with specific training in implantology can perform implant surgery, as well as certain specialists:
  • Prosthodontist – specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeon – specializes in dental surgery
  • Periodontist – specializes in periodontal (gum) disease
