From a simple cleaning to a complex dental implant, Dr. Gary Gershilevich has done it all during his 20-year tenure as a dentist. A number of technologies have helped him along the way, including digital x-rays, which have 90% less radiation and the ability to Photoshop any unsightly discoveries. Dr. Gershilevich also uses an intraoral camera to zoom in on areas of the mouth and display his findings on a screen for patients to see and better understand.
We focus on treating TMJ, headache and facial pain patients. We treat gum problems with the non-surgical Perio Protect Method which allows patients to kill the bacteria that cause gum disease and decay. Used comfortably when you shower, the cause of disease is controlled without pain.
Joan Krueger—a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994—has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.
A love for music, the outdoors, and the Cardinals isn't quite enough to keep Dr. Eric Dankoski, Kirkwood Dental Care's lone dentist, away from the tools of his trade. While working, he makes a point to keep patients informed and at ease, chatting about his wife, kids, and dog, or perhaps explaining why all dentist chairs are stuffed with warm cotton candy. Patients can prepare for their visit by reading up on teeth at the online dental-education center, then surprise the staff—who develop their own know-how in conferences and seminars—by describing gum disease.
The skilled doctors of St. Louis Orthodontic Group straighten the gum bones of both children and adults with professional precision. During a comprehensive exam, a specialist pours over the inner workings of mandibles, combing mouth real estate for common problems such as crossbites, spacing, crowding, and irritating gangs of popcorn kernels. A round of x-rays and photos thoroughly captures the mouth's essence, ensuring treatment is best suited to each patient's individual needs. A teeth impression immortalizes the mouth's every curve without the discomfort of being cast in bronze, and readies chompers for their choice of braces including metal, clear, or Invisalign models, preparing cuspids for a comfortable corrective fit.
