"Dr. Abraham and his staff are great! Not only have they seen me, but our three kids (ages 8,8 & 9, yes twins) and our grandma. We've all seen dentists that are highly recommended, from Corona Del Mar to San Jose as we use to live in Silicon Valley, but I can honestly say that Sr.Abraham and his staff (from dental hygienists, front office staff to the Doc himself) are the best I've seen. They are obviously a for profit business, but they go out of their way to make sure you get more value than what you would ever expect. Dr.Kareem is above all, concerned with the overall health of our entire family. He does things like screen his patients for different issues, as a precaution and doesn't charge extra, just to make sure he has a good overall picture of your health and that you're well informed. I think the biggest thing though is everyone in our family likes going to the dentist because it's always a good experience. The doc is wonderful with our kids and they really like him. They've never complained of anything and that's great! I just recently found out that Dr.Kareem was listed as OC's top 10 doctors in Orange Coast magazine and he didn't pay them a dime, it was a total surprise to him."- S.B. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2019
"The best dentist in Orange County. I have been visiting this office for years now. The staff are courteous and professional, they know who you are and are happy to see you. They provide excellent care and attention with the newest equipment and techniques. MOST IMPORTANTLY you will not feel a thing when they are working on your teeth. They are incredibly gentle while they work. I recently had a filling and the procedure was over before I even knew it. When I say that I didn’t feel a thing I mean that I did not feel even the slightest pinch, pressure, or discomfort. I was incredibly impressed and can not speak well enough about this office."- A.S. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"We are so thankful we met Dr.Abraham!Our first appointment was our family of four.Luckily they had kids center filled with legos( mind you before this whole COVID craziness happened) where they were able to enjoy legos and watch a movie while my husband and I got our cleaning. I couldn’t believe how sweet and loving all the girls were! I can’t remember all the names but Ms.Anna entertained the girls while Chelsea literally heated up an organic cheese pizza for my girls to eat while we finished! Not only was customer service on point but the actual dental work that needed to be done was finished professionally! Luckily my husband just needed cleaning. But I had some work done including a root canal where I was taken to Dr.Bijan for my root canal In which he did a n awesome job! Didn’t feel a thing with the gentle wave tech! So thank Dr.Abraham for sending me to Dr.Bijan and back to get my perfectly shaped crown that was assisted with Mariah. Did I mention you can get the rhinestones here that have been going In style! Ask Mariah for details! Again, don’t waste your time looking around just check it out! Sorry for novel!"- J.R. / Yelp / Jun 22, 2020
"I have a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen in a while and was absolutely amazed at how great his teeth looked. I asked him who his dentist was and I switched immediately to LifeTime Smiles. I am so glad I did. What a great office atmosphere ontop of Dr. Abraham being a great dentist. I believe he takes great care in the wellbeing of my husband and I and our dental needs. I would HIGHLY recommend LifeTime Smiles of OC."- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 10, 2020
"During the COVID-19 pandemic I had a capped tooth that was previously chipped years ago. The cap on the tooth came off leaving me with half a front tooth and no dentist being open to fix it. Luckily through a family member I was able to find Dr. Abraham and see him in less than 24 hours after I chipped my tooth!! Dr. Abraham went above and beyond to see me and fix my tooth, he even apologized for not being able to see me the same day it happened. His office is also extremely helpful and friendly. Anna at the front desk was very welcoming and accommodating. Also, his assistant Mariah was extremely friendly, personable, and helpful. I now will be going Dr. Abraham for all my dental work and will be referring all my family and friends to him."- A.C. / Google / Jun 10, 2020
Best Candidates for Full-Mouth Reconstruction
You may require full-mouth reconstruction if you've lost some teeth or have many teeth with large fillings that need replacement. You might also have teeth with widespread decay or teeth that are cracked, broken, or become badly worn down because of bruxism (persistent teeth grinding). You may have dental ailments or even a hereditary disorder like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (abnormally small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (stained or translucent teeth), which require extensive treatment. You might choose to replace older crowns, or just want to enhance your mouth for better comfort or health. In more complex cases, your degraded gums and teeth might have caused a visible facial deformity, like sunken cheeks. Full-mouth reconstruction may revive the whole face once the ideal number of teeth are in place.
What To Expect with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Following a complete examination of your gums, teeth, and jaw, Dr. Abraham might suggest full-mouth reconstruction. Your personalized treatment program will be generated depending on the condition of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular) joints, facial muscles, and dental bite. Dr. Abraham will discuss your therapy and sedation alternatives and his own recommendations in your appointment to make sure your treatment strategy fits your wants and goals. As soon as your treatment program is made, he will discuss exactly what to expect in your full-mouth reconstruction and schedule your procedures. Generally, a full-mouth reconstruction will require a few visits to LifeTime Smiles of OC. Dr. Abraham will schedule your treatments with breaks in between to let you recover until the next step is started.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery
After every procedure in your full-mouth reconstruction treatment program, Dr. Abraham will describe what to expect and how to look after your mouth. He can write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medicine that needs to be filled prior to your treatment. You might experience some swelling or discomfort following certain processes, such as implant placement that will make it hard to eat so a soft or liquid food diet could be best for you. After your full-mouth reconstruction is finished, you must maintain your oral health at home with good flossing and brushing. Yearly dental examinations and twice-yearly cleanings at LifeTime Smiles of OC will also be helpful. Throughout your examinations, Dr. Abraham can track the health of your own restorations, natural gums, teeth, and jaw.
