You and your family deserve exceptional care. Specialists are best equipped to provide the quality care that supports a pleasant and safe experience, optimal results from treatment, and lasting oral health. As our name suggests, Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry in CA is led by professionals who have demonstrated advanced knowledge and experience in recognized dental specialties.
For more than two decades, Dr. Frank Vidjak has specialized in “prosthodontics.” As a prosthodontist, Dr. Vidjak is skilled at designing new tooth structure or new teeth that are indistinguishable from healthy, natural teeth in terms of their appearance, as well as in terms of how they function and feel in your mouth.
Let’s break this unusual term, “prosthodontist,” down: Derived from two Greek words, “prostho” refers to “replacement,” while “dontic” refers to “teeth.” So, “teeth replacement” is a fair way to sum up what specialists like Dr. Vidjak do; however, prosthodontists are not just concerned about planning, designing, and placing new tooth material or new teeth. They also focus on replacing or rehabilitating the structures and tissues that support the teeth. These specialists have a high degree of proficiency in a range of conditions associated with damaged or missing teeth, and oral, jaw, and facial tissues. A partial listing of these services includes:
The American College of Prosthodontists reports that there are around 3,500 prosthodontists and “prosthodontists in training” (residents) practicing in the United States. Comparatively, there are more than 110,000 practicing “general dentists” in the U.S. You are fortunate to live in close proximity to a prosthodontist’s specialized care.
To attain this distinction, Dr. Vidjak completed three years of focused, advanced training and education in prosthodontics after earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. When you focus on one area, you tend to get really good at it. You also have the opportunity to master, refine, pioneer, and innovate state-of-the-art techniques and treatments.
Dr. Vidjak is also sought after to lead dental teams and to share his knowledge with other dentists and students at professional conferences. Knowing that you have an authority in the field to resolve conditions that can mar your smile, health, and well-being, provides considerable peace of mind. We encourage you to contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Vidjak today. Our specialty expertise does not end with prosthodontics; Dr. Fanny Yacaman has also distinguished herself in the area of endodontics. She can “save” badly damaged teeth with nonsurgical root canal therapy and surgical endodontic interventions.
