Behnam Rostami DDS is a dentist from California who likes to stay active, hike, camp, and travel.
Staying warm is one of the most important things you need to pay attention to when you spend time hiking or camping, especially on overnight trips. There are just four ways to stay warm. The first and most important one is to dress properly and be able to add or remove layers based on your level of activity. The other ones are adding more insulation, using fire, and staying active.
Your body starts to generate heat when you move. This is why doing some exercises on a really cold morning such as jumping jacks or running in place will help you feel warmer. However, being active in cold weather has its negatives. You may start to sweat, which can soak and freeze some of your garments. The other problem with being active is that it requires calories. If you have a limited food supply during your trip, this may become an issue because you will want to eat more food.
If you are camping overnight and the night looks like it’s going to be really cold, your goal should be to insulate yourself from all cold surfaces. Never sit or lie on the cold ground without using some kind of padding. You can even use pine boughs to create a soft pad that you can use for seating or sleeping. If you started a fire in the evening, you can put some rocks close to it, let them warm up and use them during the night. Finally, you can always use some candles to warm up your hands and the air that you inhale just like Behnam Rostami DDS would do.
Behnam Rostami DDS is a huge movie fan. He enjoys everything from swift action movies to comedies to serious films about serious issues. Rostami enjoys a low-brow flick every once in a while, but when it comes to the truly great films, he is passionate about them and how they have affected his life. Rostami has learned much about America from films like Citizen Kane and The Godfather, and he has learned about the human spirit from many other great films over the years. But what makes a film great? Here are three things in common the best movies all have:
Human, three-dimensional characters. One of the things all great films do is transport you to a different realm sometimes wildly different than our own or remarkably similar. What makes the greatest films great is the people that populate these new realms. All great films have characters as three-dimensional and alive as the people that we see in our everyday lives.
A rich setting. The setting doesn’t have to be a sum of green screens and costume designs. It can simply be a room or a small place. No matter what the setting is, however, the greatest films make the setting come alive with its own voice and characterization in the story.
Emotionally adept acting. Behnam Rostami DDS has a long list of favorite actors he has seen and admired over the years. The best films have actors who can add to their characters rather than simply copy them. Actors bring emotional resonance and nuance to the best films.
Behnam Rostami DDS has two dental offices in Northern California.
Behnam Rostami DDS jumped on the phenomenon that was sweeping through dentists’ offices when Invisalign first became available for patients years ago. He wanted to help his patients straighten their teeth without the need for metal braces, which of course come with their own set of problems and discomforts. Invisalign provided an alternative for some patients to straighten their teeth without the pain and discomfort of metal braces. Rostami, like many other dentists all over the United States, started offering the product to their patients immediately, and it became very popular.
Invisalign has since improved its products since it first started offering clear, comfortable, and easy-to-clean braces alternatives in dentist’s offices all over the country. Today, Invisalign has products designed for teens, kids, and adults, so no matter what the patient’s age, dentists like Behnam Rostami DDS can provide noninvasive options to straightening teeth. These products fit over the teeth like a mouth guard and work much in the same way as braces do, only they are much gentler for the teeth in general and they are removable, making it easier to clean teeth and the product itself. No more special attachments for flossing teeth with braces on or cut lips and gums from the metal braces themselves.
Behnam Rostami DDS is always looking for less invasive ways to straighten teeth and provide cosmetic dentistry services to all of his patients throughout Northern California. He has two offices: one in Santa Rosa and one in Gilroy, California open for all of his patients’ dental needs.
Behnam Rostami DDS has seen many people struggle with metal braces during his long, 30-plus-year career in dentistry. For decades, metal braces were the only way to straighten teeth effectively. Orthodontists, especially in the United States, where Rostami lives, routinely prescribed metal braces to patients even though they are known to be cumbersome and uncomfortable because there was no alternative. These days, however, more dentists and orthodontists are turning away from conventional metal braces in favor of Invisalign braces, which are smooth, comfortable, and removable. Here are some benefits of Invisalign:
Invisalign braces straighten teeth faster. Metal braces usually take up to five years to fully correct crooked teeth. Invisalign takes only a year to a year and a half to perform the same functions as metal braces. Behnam Rostami DDS has seen excellent results from Invisalign in that time frame.
No surprises. In the past, dentists like Behnam Rostami DDS have had to use trial-and-error to determine if metal braces are being as effective as they could be. Today, though, dentists can plan treatments completely on the computer, calculating exactly how long the treatment will take and how it can be most effective.
Invisalign prevents gum and tooth damage. Sometimes, metal braces can cause gum and tooth damage because they use a large amount of force to straighten teeth. This can cause issues with demineralization and tooth decay. Clear aligners don’t have these problems. They are much easier on the teeth themselves.
Behnam Rostami DDS keeps recommending Invisalign to his patients because it has been proven to work.
Behnam Rostami DDS is a skilled and experienced dentist with offices in Santa Rosa, California and Gilroy, California. He worked as a dentist with his own office in Tehran, Iran for 14 years before he moved to the United States and became fully licensed to practice in California. He has worked as an associate dentist and a general dentist for several other offices in the region, and he has performed his share of tooth extractions.
Tooth extractions are dental procedures and are exactly what they sound like. Behnam Rostami DDS and other professionals like him remove teeth from patients when they become unrepairable for a number of reasons. They sometimes perform tooth extractions when they determine that they need to stop or prevent overcrowding in the mouth. Behnam Rostami DDS has removed many teeth for patients for a variety of reasons. Usually these reasons ranging from tooth decay, periodontal disease in the gums, or dental trauma. A typical patient requiring tooth extraction usually comes to a dentist with a severe toothache or other discomfort resulting from a diseased tooth. Despite the fear and uneasiness surrounding these procedures, most are handled easily and mostly painlessly. The dentist usually only needs to administer local anesthetic to numb the pain, rather than put the patient under with anesthesia.
Behnam Rostami DDS has performed tooth extractions on hundreds of patients over his long career. Most of these procedures are preventable with proper maintenance of teeth and regular checkups, which can catch tooth decay and gum disease before they become serious problems.
One of the specialties of Behnam Rostami DDS that he has become known for in his community in northern California is dental implants. Rostami has been practicing dentistry for decades in both his native Iran and in the United States and he swears by dental implants, which are becoming increasingly more popular in recent years. Here are three of the many benefits of dental implants for all dental patients:
- Reduce the load on oral structures. Behnam Rostami DDS loves putting in implants because they offer independent support to crowns, overdentures, and bridgework, and ease the stress on normal teeth.
- Preserve natural tooth tissue. Normal bridgework usually involves cutting down adjacent teeth. Dental implants make that practice unnecessary in most cases, preserving natural tooth structure.
- Preserve bone and reduce bone resorption and deterioration. Dental implants act as natural teeth, allowing dentists like Behnam Rostami DDS to avoid problems with jawbone damage.
Through the years, Behnam Rostami DDS has worked on his ability to preserve his patients’ natural tooth and jawbone structure. He believes that a light touch is best in dentistry whenever possible. Dental implants are an excellent way to do this while still providing the best repair work and preventative measures possible.
Dental implants allow patients to retain as much of the natural tooth structure as possible while still delivering top-notch repair services. Many patients around the world have already realized the many benefits of dental implants provided by skilled dental surgeons like Dr. Rostami and others.
Behnam Rostami DDS is a dentist based in northern California with two offices, one in Santa Rosa and one in Gilroy, California. Over the years since he graduated from dental school in Tehran, Iran and he opened his own practice there, he has learned many new dental skills during his career, including the finer points of cosmetic dentistry, a huge trend in the United States. Here are three benefits of cosmetic dentistry that you may not realize:
Some procedures can prevent future dental damage. Behnam Rostami DDS learned quickly that procedures like bonding can strengthen your teeth. Covering up hairline fractures can prevent further wear on these teeth that can lead to problems in the future.
