Frequently Asked Questions

What is a periodontist?

A Periodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on treatment, prevention and diagnosis of the gums and bone. Periodontists specialize in placing dental implants, performing microsurgical procedures such as gingival grafting, bone grafting and esthetic gum recontouring. Periodontists receive 3 additional years of advanced training beyond the general dentistry education they receive in dental school.

What is the difference between prosthodontics and general dentistry?

While general dentists provide routine dental care, such as cleanings and fillings, prosthodontists are specialists who focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and restoration of missing or damaged teeth. Prosthodontists receive additional education and training to provide advanced care for complex dental problems.

What kind of experience and qualifications do your specialists have?

Our specialists at Transcend are highly trained and experienced in their respective areas of expertise. All of our dentists are prosthodontists and periodontists specialists have completed advanced education and training in their fields and are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to our patients.

What materials are used for veneers?

Veneers can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, composite resin, and ceramic. Porcelain veneers are often considered the most durable and natural-looking option, while composite resin veneers are more affordable and can be completed in a single appointment.

What is better, an implant or a bridge?

Both implants and bridges can be effective options for replacing missing teeth, but the right choice for you will depend on your specific needs and goals. Implants are a durable and long-lasting option, but may require more extensive treatment. Bridges can be a quicker and less invasive option, but may need to be replaced more frequently, and can affect the adjacent teeth.

What are the options to replace a missing tooth?

There are several options for replacing a missing tooth, including implants, bridges, and partial dentures. Each option has its own benefits and drawbacks, and the best choice for you will depend on your specific needs and goals.

How do you treat worn down teeth?

Worn down teeth can be caused by several factors, including bruxism (teeth grinding), acid erosion, or improper brushing techniques. Treatment options may include orthodontics, crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, dental implants or other restorative procedures. In moderate to severe cases of worn down teeth, a bite reconstruction may be indicated which involved rebuilding all the teeth to a healthier and more stable bite position.

How do you correct gum recession?

Gum recession can be caused by a number of factors, such as periodontal disease, aggressive brushing, or genetics. Depending on the cause and severity of the recession, treatment options may include scaling and root planning, gum grafting, or other periodontal procedures.

Testimonials and Experiences

I came to Dr. Edher after years of struggling with my teeth and bite. I had braces twice and multiple experiences with dentists trying to “Fix” my bite and never successfully finding anyone who could really help me. I suffered constantly with pain, both with chewing my food and clenching my teeth and eventually wore them down so much that eating became very uncomfortable and unenjoyable. Any work that was done never fit correctly and either broke off or caused me to bite my tongue and cheeks causing a lot of discomfort. Dr. Edher met with me and spent a lot of time talking to me about what it was I wanted to see happen and also provided me with what he felt were my best options in restoring my bite and solving the problems I had been having with my teeth. I was skeptical at first that he would be able to help me and yet, right from the start he proved that he knew what he was doing and fit me with the most beautiful fit and most beautiful smile. I can finally eat without pain, actually chew my food properly and love the way my new smile looks. He is kind and cares about how your treatment can help you and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone who is struggling with their teeth, bite and treatments. I’m so grateful to have met him and can’t thank him enough for changing my life with my new and FUNCTIONAL teeth and beautiful smile!!!

Dr. Edher is outstanding in my experience and I feel blessed to have him as my prosthodontist. He is highly skilled, takes the time to get everything right – he is a perfectionist – and is also very personable. He is everything you could want in a medical professional. I recommend him without hesitation to everyone I know needing crown work. He has done excellent work for me, creating crowns that look completely natural – like real teeth. He restored my self-confidence and I will be returning to him for other work in the near future. As far as I’m concerned he’s my go to prosthodontist for the rest of my natural life. Additionally, he works in a clinic that uses the latest technology and provides hygiene, implants and periodontal work. Their holistic approach to patients is unparalleled and it’s really nice to be able to go to one place where the team collaborates on my care. Everyone I’ve encountered there from the front desk to the assistants to the hygienists and dentists is top notch. As a person who spent years being afraid of dentists, I can’t say enough about how Dr. Edher and the team have restored my trust and confidence.

As a dentist of thirty years experience, I can say that Dr. Edher is an amazing source of cutting edge technology and expertise. He has a thorough knowledge base and has a warm, caring manner in his interactions. I would not hesitate to recommend patients or professionals to him.
Derek
Words cannot express the “gratitude” I feel for having Dr. Edher as my Prosthodontist and I highly recommend him and his staff. He is professional, kind and an excellent communicator. He genuinely cares, and goes beyond the call of duty to find a solution to bring his patients comfort, their “quality of life” back and a beautiful natural smile. He is extremely patient and always makes you feel comfortable asking questions that you are concerned about and he really “listens” and he explains procedures very well. Without a doubt, you can put your complete trust in this very dedicated , conscientious and skilled dentist and he will not let you down through your dental process. He is very committed to his patients. His work is impeccable and you can be confident you will end up with positive results!
