Periodontal Treatments by Nassau County Periodontist, Dr. Marichia Attalla in Williston Park, NY 11596

Dr. Attalla is an expert in the field of periodontal services, particularly periodontal services for children. Infants begin forming teeth in their jawbones while still in the womb. The first teeth generally erupt from the gums at around the age of two, which is when a child should begin his or her regular dental examinations. Dr. Attalla provides periodontal care for children that may include diagnostic testing for perio-pathogenic bacteria, which can lead to future periodontal disease.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth or even several teeth, you can still look and feel your best when you choose dental implants as a highly appealing tooth replacement option. An implant can restore just one tooth or an entire bridge with a high rate of success due to the strength and fine aesthetics that accompany surgical dental implants.

In fact, modern dental implants can be the best solution for those who are missing teeth or are in need of having teeth extracted. A dental implant is a substitute for your tooth’s root. It is made up of a surgical-grade titanium post that provides a solid foundation for attaching your replacement teeth. Everything is impeccably molded for a perfect match to your mouth for optimal fit and comfort. Modern medicine and painless anesthetics enable the surgical insertion of dental implants below the surface of the gum and into the jawbone. Dr. Attalla can provide you with a consultation concerning your need or desire for dental implants.

Implant Overdentures

Dr. Attalla will ensure that with the correct dental implants inserted and then she will work with your general dentist or prosthodontist to make sure they're attached to your existing or new dentures. You’ll enjoy a better fit that will stabilize your dentures more securely and increase any lost confidence you may have suffered from poorly fitted dentures. Speak to Dr. Attalla concerning implant overdentures.

Bone Augmentation

When you lose a tooth, the rest of your teeth may shift, causing your jawbone structure to change, affecting your facial structure. Dental implants may not be a feasible solution unless there is a solid bone base on which to anchor the implants. In order to provide you with life-changing dental implants, Dr. Attalla will restore your gum-line with bone grafts so you can enjoy your dental implants despite bone degeneration.

Sinus Lift

If your sinus cavity has expanded, there is not enough bone in your upper jaw, making the insertion of dental implants less possible to achieve. Dr. Attalla can use bone-grafting techniques to perform a sinus augmentation or lift, thickening the bone in the sinus base, allowing you to then go ahead with dental implant procedures.

Gum Contouring

Some smiles show an undesirable amount of excess gum tissue. This can be corrected cosmetically with a gum contouring procedure. Dr. Attalla can cosmetically lengthen your crown to provide you with the look of longer teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue. This periodontal disease can cause tooth loss if left untreated as it eventually breaks down the tissues of the jaw that support the teeth. Dr. Attalla takes a preventive approach to gum disease, assessing your periodontal health and offering appropriate treatment.

Oral Cancer

Dr. Attalla is the optimal evaluator as a periodontist for performing routine oral cancer screenings. She can observe any abnormalities early on and provide you with the necessary procedures to hopefully save your life and prevent future problems.

Diagnosing Periodontal Disease

Early detection of periodontal disease is the key to protection. Receiving a thorough checkup of your periodontal health with Dr. Attalla will give you the best chance of protecting yourself against the problems and complications that can occur due to periodontal disease.

Should you need to have a tooth removed, you may lose some jawbone, too. A tooth extraction can also cause teeth and bone to shift and shrink. A dental implant may help you deal with this bone loss before it occurs. Dr. Attalla can extract your tooth while preserving your bone structure, ensuring you will have the thick bone base necessary to anchor dental implants upon.

Receding Gums

If your gums are receding, you may notice that your smile is not as attractive as it once was. Your teeth may also have become more sensitive due to your lowering gum-line that can expose your teeth’s porous roots. Dr. Attalla can use your own or a donor’s tissue during a gum grafting procedure which is minimally invasive and returns a healthy smile to your face.

Non-Surgical Treatments

If periodontal disease is discovered early enough, Dr. Attalla can treat it with an intensive cleaning below the gum-line known as scaling and root-planing. This gets rid of the tartar and plaque that lead to disease.

Temporary Anchorage Devices

A temporary anchorage device (TADs) can be affixed to your teeth if you need orthodontic treatment. Using a local anesthetic, Dr. Attalla will place a small screw in the bone near the teeth to anchor orthodontic devices. The stability provided by TADs allows for less time in braces and, best of all, they only take minutes to place.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

Dr. Attalla can safely and effectively return lost youth to your facial area using Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvederm XC, injected into frown lines, facial wrinkles and labial folds around nose and lips. Wrinkles are smoothed and your self-esteem rejuvenated.

Sedation Dentistry

Patients who suffer from anxiety may opt for sedation such as Nitrous Oxide to relax them. The drug will wear off rapidly when the treatment is completed. Under nitrous oxide, a patient will be awake the entire time, be able to speak to Dr. Attalla, yet feel calm and relaxed. For those who prefer to be more completely sedated during a procedure, IV sedation can be performed. Speak to Dr. Attalla about your concerns and your options when it comes to sedation dentistry.

Patient Testimonials

“I was between jobs, and without insurance, when I needed emergency periodontal work. I had been trying to deal with the pain, but it got so bad I had to go to someone. Dr. Attalla saw me and provided some minor services to help me get out of pain.

I got a new job with new insurance shortly after, and Dr. Attalla finished what she needed to do. That was six year ago, and she has been my Periodontist ever since.”
