Indira G. Sahiwal, DMD, MS, is a highly skilled prosthodontist who has received awards for her graduate and community work. Dr. Sahiwal takes great pride in creating a soothing environment for patients and helping them achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. She is dedicated to excellence in restorative dentistry and strives for perfection with every procedure.
Dr. Sahiwal and her team at Atherton Center for Advanced Dentistry focus their practice on prosthodontics, which includes dental implants, dental veneers, dental crowns, dental bridges and dentures. Prior to the procedure, she meets with patients individually to discuss any questions, explain the procedure and create a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Sahiwal is committed to providing outstanding care in a relaxing atmosphere, which is why her office is equipped with neck pillows, aromatherapy candles and a large library of DVDs and CDs to make the experience as pleasant as possible.
Dr. Sahiwal uses state-of-the-art materials and techniques when performing prosthodontic procedures. Her approach is based on the fundamental tenet of Additive Dentistry, which is to build on the healthy teeth already present, with minimal or no damage.
Subsequently, Dr. Sahiwal works with dental implants because they stimulate bone growth, prevent atrophy and loss of bone mass, and have minimal impact on adjacent teeth. Within implant therapy, she is one of the few dentists in the country to plan all of her implants virtually using a CAD/CAM software. Dr. Sahiwal also uses the teeth-in-an-hour approach when appropriate for the patient. In addition, she offers porcelain veneers that are individually shaped for each patient, as well as overdentures and customized complete or partial removable dentures.
