He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 2001 from the University of California Riverside, and went on to pursue a doctorate in dental surgery from the prestigious UCLA school of Dentistry, graduating in 2005. He then went on to complete a one-year General Practice residency at the Montefiore Hospital in New York, affiliated with the Albert Einstein school of Medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dental Implant gives us the ability to replace the roots of teeth in order to act as the foundation to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental Implants are made out of biocompatible materials (mostly Titanium) allowing bone and tissue to fuse to them and support a functioning tooth replacement.
Dr. Mahmood may place Dental Implants in order to support one missing tooth or multiple depending on your needs. Prior to having any Dental Implants placed you would typically visit for a brief consultation in order to undergo the appropriate clinical and imaging needs and to discuss the nature of your procedure.
The recommendation is to remove wisdom teeth prior to complete development of the roots. Younger patients tend to heal and recover quickly with a decreased chance of complications. Although the recommendations are to remove wisdom teeth prior to age 25 if able, any patient is a candidate for wisdom teeth removal depending on the patients needs.
The Temporomandibular Joint (hinge of the jaw) is a very unique joint with multiple complexities that are not seen in other joints. The movements required of the TMJ are multi-directional; The TM joints are the only joints in the human body that are interconnected to each other. The human jaw must be capable of vertical and lateral movement in order to be fully functional. The structures involved in the TMJ are also complex, consisting of multiple bones, muscles, cartilage and tendons.
TMJ disorders are compromised of a family of problems related to the structures involved. The symptoms may range for mild headaches to severe pain inability to move your jaw joint. A thorough evaluation with Dr. Mahmood would help delineate the structures involved in your particular case. The exact cause of your symptoms is not always clear. Prior history of trauma is one of the many potential causes that could lead to TMJ problems.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association who are surgically trained in a hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years. They train alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and spend time in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), plastic surgery, emergency medicine and other specialty areas. This training focuses almost completely on the bone, skin and muscle of the face, mouth and jaw. Oral and facial surgeons have knowledge and expertise that uniquely qualifies them to diagnose and treat a number of functional and esthetic conditions in this anatomical area.
