At AH Dental, Dr. Navdeep Aulakh—a member of the American Dental Association with 8 years of experience— straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments tailored to each patient's needs. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Patients return to see Dr. Aulakh for periodic check-ups to ensure their mouth pearls continue to reseat themselves according to plan. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Emphasizing preventative care, the professionals at Dental Care of Columbia and Family Dental Care of Maple Lawn scour sullied maws with dental exams, digital x-rays, and hygienic cleanings. During each exam, specialists conduct a complete periodontal screening to check for evidence of gum disease, cavities, cracks, and meteorites. Digital x-rays emit half the radiation emitted by traditional devices and send all captured images directly to a computer, where technicians and patients alike can immediately view the information on a screen.
Roca Dental’s father-and-son dentist team straightens teeth effectively and discreetly using the cutting-edge Invisalign system. After a thorough examination to verify the patient's oral health, teeth have their impressions taken and enjoy paparazzi attention with a photo shoot against a tropical backdrop. Photos are then rendered into 3-D images of mandibles, which doctors use to plan ivories’ shift to their desired final positions. The straightening process itself outfits chomper sets with custom-made plastic aligners, which are replaced every two weeks as they gradually push teeth into orderly ranks. Made of clear, smooth plastic, these tusk trays hold numerous clear advantages over traditional braces, including easy removal for brushing and eating and virtual invisibility to friends, crushes, and amorous magnets. The first set of plastic aligners is included with this Groupon, as are monthly checkups to note patient progress toward gorgeous grins.
Under the direction of Dr. Farida Khattak, the Dynamic Family Dentistry team maintains high standards in training, safety, and patient education to keep teeth in mint condition. The dentists and hygienists recognize the unease some patients may feel about going on dental visits, which is why they try to create a comforting atmosphere with personalized care and positive demeanors. As the mother of two young girls, Dr. Khattak is particularly skilled in the art of putting children at ease during appointments, as well as synchronized french braiding. She and her staff perform preventive services such as x-rays, cleanings, and periodontal exams, along with more involved procedures such as dental implants and porcelain crowns.
The ultramodern Arlington Center for Dentistry looks more like a spaceship than a dentist's office. Sliding glass doors give way to a private waiting room equipped with a flat-screen TV and bright-red leather couch. Beyond its translucent walls, massive pillars painted gold and bright green pepper the path to the reception desk, interspersed with more flat-screen TVs to entertain patients perched upon circular benches that look as though they might lift into the sky at any moment.
The smooth, corner-less aesthetic hints at the state-of-the-art treatments administered beyond the waiting room, where seven experienced doctors––among them dentists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, endodontists, and pedondontists––strive to ensure a healthy, happy future for each smile. With an emphasis on creating lasting doctor/patient relationships, they gently guide mouths on custom treatment plans that can include everything from invisible braces to chip-covering Lumineers. Full-mouth and panoramic radiographs combine with comprehensive periodontal charting and bite analysis to pinpoint problems with precision, and model wax-ups of teeth present a mockup of how teeth will look after cosmetic treatments or if they fail to give up their candle-snacking habit.
