With a focus on preventative health care, Generations Family Dentistry maintains mouthy mashers while fashioning sparkling smiles with teeth-whitening services. During a thorough exam, teeth are checked for cavities and other ailments with both keen human eyes and the keener eyes of an x-ray, capable of detecting mouth miscreants hiding beneath gum lines and invisibility cloaks. After that, Dr. Greenwell starts the Zoom! whitening process by applying a lightening gel containing hydrogen peroxide that’s then activated with a special light and readings from an ancient tome. In the roughly 45-minute process, the gel penetrates the teeth to break up stains, potentially leaving teeth gleaming up to eight shades brighter while erasing “Wash Me” signs left by mischievous tonsils.
State of the Art Dentistry's skillful tooth mechanics enable chompers to stay strong and attractive for decades of successful apple bobbing. During a low-stakes interview with Dr. Morris or Dr. Wright, the dentist will introduce herself to the patient's enamel and discuss dental and medical history, lifestyle, and any overall mouth-health concerns. Then, mouths enjoy a gentle but thorough oral examination (a $75 value) and cleaning (a $60 value). A friendly staff member will take photos (a $15 value) and low-radiation digital x-rays (a $92 value) to reveal any subterranean issues or burrowing gummy worms, and clients are welcome to relax afterward in black modern sofas surrounded by cherrywood-hued walls and smile for as long as they like into a hand mirror. The take-home whitening kit includes customized trays and whitening gel (a $250 value).
Derby City Pediatric Dentistry’s fully accredited staff help half-pint patients maintain beta teeth in preparation for their permanent versions. Kids between the ages of 1 and 5 will undergo a thorough exam, a fluoride treatment, and cleaning to protect against cavities and wash away lodged gummy worms, as well as bite-wing x-rays to reveal roots. Exams for pre-tweens 6 and up include all of the same services with an added on Panorex x-ray, which gives dentists a 360-degree view of the mouth utensils and the warring sects of cartoon unicorns and Kewpie dolls found in children’s brains.
At Gerlach Family Dentistry, the husband-and-wife duo of Dr. Chip and Dr. Jo Ellen Gerlach understand the anxieties associated with visiting the dentist, especially for young children. Their gentle chairside manner sets patients of all generations at ease. The Gerlachs have found that educating their patients is a better way of relieving their fears than throwing them a candy bar every time they say the word cavity. The dental team never hesitates to explain the science behind each cosmetic or restorative procedure, along with the benefits and expected outcomes.In order to make visits safe and comfortable, Drs. Chip and Jo Ellen outfit their office with up-to-date dental technology. Gendex digital x-rays peer into roots and bone while reducing the radiation emissions of traditional x-rays by up to 80%. Composite fillings repair cavities with tooth-colored resin in place of mercury-laced amalgam fillings or peanut butter.
At Kentucky Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Drs. Thad Schulten, W. Ronald Harris, and Timothy Acord and their team of certified assistants use the latest techniques and technology to perform a variety of procedures. They specialize in treatments ranging from dental-implant surgery and wisdom-tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery, and monitor patients before, during, and after surgeries that feature intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia. The skilled surgeons can also remove excess folds or under-eye bags with eyelid surgery, and use surgical or nonsurgical treatments to address sleep apnea resulting from an albatross-obstructed airflow.
