Although he boasts an impressive surgical repertoire, periodontist Dr. Hamid Atabakhsh—an alumnus of UCLA’s School of Dentistry—would rather prevent diseases than cure them. He prides himself on his office’s thorough exams for oral cancer and overall health, and exhorts his clients to brush and floss rigorously at home. However, when treatments are in order, his deft hands can treat gingivitis, replace missing teeth with implants, or remove wisdom teeth before their accumulated wisdom violates insider-trading laws. To stay abreast of modern dentistry technology, Dr. Atabakhsh constantly updates his techniques with a stream of continuing-education seminars.
A proper dental-care routine can prevent a medley of problems down the road, from gingivitis to cavities. The dental team at Bastani Dental Group works to augment these routines with in-office exams and procedures. During regular checkups, the team uses mirrors and instruments to search mouths for signs of disease or decay. If issues arise, the dentists remedy them with periodontal cleanings, implants, sedation, root canals, fillings, and Invisalign treatments.
Dr. Todd Brady, DMD, combines more than 1,000 hours of continuing education with cutting-edge mouth-scouring technology to restore smiles to a glimmering, healthy sheen. Dr. Brady starts with a routine inspection of soft tissues, ferreting out any signs of oral cancer and periodontal disease before wielding a laser cavity-detection device, discovering cavities and WiFi hotspots. After the exam, enamel curio cabinets receive a thorough cleaning and buffing, as Dr. Brady scrapes away built-up plaque. Chair-bound patients can listen to music, blink out Morse code lyrics, or watch movies during the exam before quaffing some nectar from the juice bar. Before your appointment, be sure to download and fill out patient forms and HIPAA forms.
During the appointment, ClearChoice Orthodontic's doctors and staff perform a dental examination before making precise molds of clients' mouths to foster at-home whitening. The tray, which is ready for pickup within four to five days of the impression, is worn a few hours each night, snuggling up to patient’s fangs so the professional-strength Ultra Radiance bleach can blanch bicuspids and ivory-ize incisors. Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.
