Preventive and Diagnostic


Preventive and Diagnostic
Our comprehensive exam includes a complete evaluation of the Mastication System, including an oral cancer screening as well as an evaluation of the jaw joints and muscles related to the Mastication System, the teeth, and the supporting bone and gum tissue around the teeth.

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.

Our highly skilled and gentle team of hygienists will provide a dental cleaning, also known as an oral prophylaxis, during which they will remove any dental plaque and tartar (calculus) from the teeth. Specialized instruments are used to gently remove these deposits without harming the teeth. First, an ultrasonic device that emits vibrations and is cooled by water is used to loosen larger pieces of tartar. Next, hand tools are used to manually remove smaller deposits and smooth the tooth surfaces. Once all the teeth’s surfaces have been cleaned of tartar and plaque, they are then polished.
Jaw joint problems can affect the quality of life, manifesting as jaw pain, severe chronic headaches, and ear and neck pain. Jaw joint problems can cause limited mouth opening, pain when chewing, or joint clicking and popping noises.

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.


Restorative

Restorative

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.

Dental implants are the replacement of tooth roots in the mouth. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. Dental implants, which are placed in the jawbone, are small anchors made of a biocompatible metal called titanium. The anchors begin to fuse with the bone over the course of a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, abutment posts are inserted into the anchors to allow for the permanent attachment of the replacement teeth.
A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers the outside of a severely decayed tooth. Dental crowns can be completed in two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepped (shaved down) and an impression is taken. A temporary crown is placed while the permanent crown is being made. During the second visit, the permanent crown is carefully fitted and then cemented into place for a permanent restoration.

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.

We provide adult orthodontic services using the state-of-the-art Invisalign® system, eliminating the need for conventional, uncomfortable braces. The Invisalign® system utilizes CAD/CAM and 3D printing to enhance the esthetics and function, providing help with many bite-related problems as well eliminating the need for many prosthetic procedures geared towards improving esthetics.
We use Zoom!® Whitening, the best system available, to provide immediate, safe, and predictable results and, in certain cases, to provide a great conservative alternative to veneers and bonding.
Porcelain veneers are a predictable and conservative alternative to crowns and, when applied properly, can last for decades. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain used to recreate the natural shape and function of anterior teeth. Veneers require minimal tooth structure reduction and provide esthetics and durability.

To aid in completing the comprehensive approach, on occasion we utilize Botox® to help complete the care of our patients.

Dentists are recognized as being one of the most suitable professionals to administer Botox® treatment because of their comprehensive knowledge of facial structure.

With noticeable results without surgery or recovery time, there are many reasons why Botox® Cosmetic treatments could be right for you. Botox® offers noticeable changes to your appearance without surgery or recovery time, and is ideal for erasing facial lines on the forehead and around the eyes, leaving you looking more youthful and feeling more beautiful.
