She provides a variety of great, effective services and procedures that benefit your health and well-being and the esthetics of your smile.Outstanding Periodontal Care
Dr. Marichia Attalla provides a wide range of periodontal services from preventative treatments to the repairing of damage. She is an expert in her field, providing some of the best dental implants and implant overdentures in the area, as well as a number of non-surgical approaches for treating related conditions.
- Dental Implants
and Implant Overdentures: Implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth, a bridge or even an entire set of teeth. They are an amazing alternative to dentures. For patients that already have dentures and are pleased with them, implant overdentures are an economical option that can help with issues caused by poorly-fitting false teeth.
- Bone Grafting
and Gum Grafting: The latest techniques and technology are utilized for both bone and gum grafting. Bone grafting is sometimes necessary prior to inserting an implant and is also used to repair bone loss caused by periodontitis. Gum grafting repairs the unsightly aftermath of receded gums and remedies sensitive tooth issues that result from exposed roots.
- Tooth Extraction: When teeth need to come out, a newer technique known as atraumatic extraction is used in order to preserve the socket as much as possible. The technique is quick and painless. Plus, it makes adding implants much easier, speeds the healing process and decreases recovery time.
- Cosmetic Crown Lengthening: Along with these reparative surgeries, cosmetic crown lengthening is also provided to improve unappealing "gummy" smiles. All of these surgeries are outpatient in nature and you can typically get back to your daily routine right away.
- Non-Surgical Treatments: Today, there are several non-surgical approaches that can be used to treat gum disease and gingivitis. Dr. Attalla provides both scaling treatments along with root-planing. Scaling is a type of deep cleaning
and root-planing smooths out uneven surfaces on your teeth to stop bacteria from congregating there. Both of these methods are quick, painless and some of the best ways to prevent periodontitis - the most severe form of periodontal disease, which often leads to the loss of teeth.
Dr. Attalla works closely with her patients to create personalized treatment plans, always keeping their needs in mind. Treatment plans all begin with an extensive assessment of your oral health. This is true whether you have a common periodontal condition like gum disease
or if you have more advanced forms of periodontal disease
requiring extensive repair. She even provides painless periodontal treatments for children
to get the entire family off on the right foot when it comes to oral health.Insurance Claims Processed for You!
Not only does Dr. Marichia Attalla strive to make periodontal surgeries and treatments as pain-free as possible from start to finish, but she also strives to make the entire process less painful on your wallet. The office accepts almost all insurance plans
and programs. If your insurance is not on the list of accepted plans, please let us know!
To further decrease the stress often associated with periodontal care, the office will take care of all of the necessary insurance paperwork for you. Many different forms of payment are accepted for your convenience and financing options are also available to those that qualify.Pain-Free and Stress-Free
No one should be discouraged from getting the proper periodontal care due to the fear of pain. Untreated periodontal disease
is actually substantially more painful than the treatments and even more painful than reparative surgery. Most periodontal surgeries require only a local anesthetic to perform. After the surgery, any minor pain and swelling can be managed with over-the-counter medications. Only a few surgeries even require prescription medications. Dentistry and oral surgery have both made great strides in recent years in order to keep your teeth healthy while cutting down on the stress. Dr. Attalla genuinely cares about your experience and will walk you through every step, no matter the case.
