For more than 20 years, Dr. Michael E. Shambaugh has been building strong, straight, healthy smiles for whole families of patients. Dr. Shambaugh works with patients to identify dental issues such as bite irregularities and gum disease before creating a personalized plan of attack to bring mouths back to showroom condition. The doctor and his staff can peek beneath enamel with modern x-rays, quell cantankerous molars, or lighten smiles with custom bleaching trays.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. Dr. Nkechi Wan and her fellow toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
Dr. Reichwage, twice published in Dentistry Today, continuously expands his dental expertise with postgraduate courses in laser dentistry and the latest in cosmetic and restorative treatments. His staff at Fort Wayne Smiles has followed suit, training in technologies such as Zoom! teeth whitening and dental implants. Together, staff members dole out services that restore the health and beauty of molars, incisors, or retractable fangs, including cosmetic options such as porcelain veneers.
At Shambaugh Family Dentistry, patients can clean up dingy smiles with a variety of whitening services. The process for acquiring whitening trays (a $350 value) begins with a 20-minute initial consultation. A brief examination ensures that teeth are healthy enough to be beautified, and upper and lower bite impressions are taken. Come back one week later to pick up the trays; it takes about 20 minutes to deliver the whitening trays and learn the instructions. Opt for the Zoom! Whitening treatment (a $475 value) and experience shade-shifting results of at least six to ten shades. After a 20-minute initial appointment, this quick, pain-free process takes just over an hour and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Feel free to kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into your teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means you'll be exempt from additional take-home whitening regimens.

After stepping into one of Evolve's private massage rooms, clients can stretch out on a comfortable, emotionally supportive massage bed. Once you are horizontal, one of Evolve's highly trained massage therapists will proceed to work his or her sure-handed magic on all knots, kinks, and pinched nerves incurred during a daring mental-prison escape. After an hour of tenderizing treatment, newly de-knotted customers can nimbly wander out into the world feeling a strange sense of kinship to Gumby.
Vital Living WellSpa's accomplished staff, which include registered nurses, licensed aestheticians, and 11 certified massage therapists, focus on healing bodies with de-stressing massages, rejuvenating facials, and calming body treatments.

The spa specialists then get to work repairing corporeal landscapes, revitalizing skin with more than 10 facial and body treatments that use high-end Bioelements and Sircuit Cosmeceuticals products and powerful essential oils, and untying knotted musculature with classic massage varieties such as deep tissue, trigger point, and neuromuscular therapy. Vital Living may also add extras such as hot packs, heated blankets, pillows, and sweet compliments to any treatment to further soothe corpora.
