Multidisciplinary Approach To Achieving Your Perfect Smile
Dr. Dargham not only strives to achieve perfect stability for your teeth to make them function properly, but also considers how they look while doing so. Increasingly, her work involves experience and expertise in aesthetics, or cosmetic dentistry. More and more today’s cosmetically-driven dentist, like Dr. Dargham, must become intimately familiar with formerly isolated disciplines such as orthodontics, periodontics, restorative dentistry, and maxillofacial surgery.
Creating long lasting smiles that look and function seamlessly over many years to come often requires Dr. Dargham to invite specialists from these other disciplines to collaborate in logical and interdisciplinary thinking. This approach provides a systematic method of examining dentofacial aesthetics, eventually culminating in a well defined aesthetic plan that also considers form, function, structure, and physiology. In doing so, Dr. Dargham will have allowed the various disciplines in dentistry to assist her in delivering the highest level of dental care to each and every one of her patients.
Dr. Dargham would like you to better understand who these specialists are, and what they do.
A dentist that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of advanced periodontal disease. Periodontists are also trained in the surgical placement of dental implants. Additionally, a periodontist is able to assist Dr. Dargham in the surgical or laser-induced cosmetic enhancement of the gums that help frame your smile. Surgical intervention would also be considered in the treatment of severe gum problems.
A dentist that specializes in the treatment of difficult root canal pathology. This may include performing root canal therapy on teeth with narrow or blocked canals, or unusual anatomy. They may use technology such as microscopes, ultrasonics, and digital imaging, to perform these more advanced services. Although Dr. Dargham performs root canal therapy, she, at times, may refer you to see an endodontist for your more complicated case.
This specialist is the surgeon of the dental profession. He, or she, is uniquely trained, over a time spanning five to seven years beyond dental school, to treat conditions, defects, injuries, and aesthetics issues of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face. The training focuses on the hard (i.e., bone) and soft (i.e., skin, muscle) tissue of the face, mouth and jaws.
A dentist dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. He, or she, is qualified to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth. Dr. Dargham sees children on a regular basis, and loves to do so. When your child’s emotional and behavioral management becomes challenging enough to compromise safety, Dr. Dargham may then elect to refer your child to a pediatric dentist. There, child-specific sedation and safety measures would be made available to aid in your child’s comfort and well being.
A dentist uniquely qualified in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of orthodontic problems. Orthodontics uses a variety of appliances, including braces, clear aligner trays, and retainers, to move, align, or hold teeth in their new positions. Dr. Rita Dargham is a certified Invisalign provider, choosing to treat those cases she feels are candidates for achieving a beautiful and healthy smile without traditional orthodontic intervention. Those of you benefiting from more specialized orthodontic care, or treatment options, will be referred to one of our smile panel orthodontists.
Now that you have become more familiar with our Smile Panel members, please rest assured that Dr. Rita Dargham’s holistic, comprehensive, and thorough approach to your oral health can only serve to provide you with excellence in judgement, skill and expertise.
