Preventive and Diagnostic
We complement that clinical evaluation with any necessary radiographic records, including digital x-rays, which minimize radiation, and, when necessary, digital CT scans to evaluate bony structures.
Dr. Attar has specialized training in this discipline from the prestigious Pankey Institute of Key Biscaye FL and has been successfully treating these issues non-surgically for over 15 years.
We believe in comprehensive restorative care, which goes hand-in-hand with our philosophy that even minimally-invasive procedures should only be pursued only when there are no other alternatives that could limit trauma to the teeth and surrounding structures.
We apply the best techniques and utilize the best and most naturally compatible materials.
Our team of dentists provide all kinds of prosthetic services such as white fillings, crowns, bridges, partial and complete dentures, and dental implants.
A bridge replaces missing teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. A false tooth is held in place by being attached to a neighboring tooth. In order to fabricate a bridge, crowns are made for the teeth on either side of the space and a false tooth is placed in between the crowns, which act as supports.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. There are two types of dentures: Complete (Full) and Partial Dentures.
Complete (Full) Dentures are made after all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. The denture includes an acrylic base that is custom made in the dental laboratory and is made to look like natural gums. The denture sits over the gums or can be anchored to dental implants.
Removable Partial Dentures are made when only a few teeth need to be replaced. Removable partial dentures either attach to crowns on either side of the denture or to a metal framework that is then attached to the teeth on both sides of the partial denture. When worn during the day, removable partial implants can also be supported in place by dental implants. As opposed to being removable, partial dentures can also be anchored in place by being attached to dental implants.
