Dental exams are an essential part of maintaining a healthy mouth, providing early detection for problems and uncovering any damage. The comprehensive oral checkup includes an inspection of each and every mouth-stone, revealing chips, cracks, and cavity-dwelling mouth trolls (a $69 value), and the battery of x-rays uncovers the deepest secrets of each tooth-stalk (a $157 value). To extend the pearlescent benefits of the visit, clients will also receive a professional take-home whitening kit, brightening smiles, smirks, and frowns over the course of a few weeks (a $299 value).
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident 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 takeoff, 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.
Helmed by genial dentist Danielle Csaszar, Meridian View Family Dental embraces patient comfort and convenience while effectively boosting both oral health and beauty. A thorough exam, including an oral-cancer screening, susses out surface-level issues, and omniscient full-mouth x-rays reveal cavities and any poltergeists lurking between bicuspids. After determining the state of your mouth ivory, a technician preserves it by taking a quick tooth mold that becomes the template for the custom at-home whitening trays, which are ready for pickup a day or two after the appointment. The enamel sheaths slip directly over discolored chompers to blanch hues to their owners' desired shade, remedying the effects of age and cabernet-chugging competitions. Patients place small blobs of the included whitening gel into each tray and affix it to teeth for one to three hours each night, with results typically seen in about two weeks.
Fountains Family Dentistry, led by Dr. Ty Parker, ensures patients experience a comfortable dental trip by providing complimentary beverages and free WiFi and easing them into states of relaxation with anxiety-alleviating nitrous oxide. Before any treatment, such as dental implants, invisible braces, whitening, or oral-cancer screenings, patients can unwind in the lounge area with one of the office’s books or magazines, watch a flat-screen TV, or plot to take a covert dip in the indoor water fountain.
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.
Bleaching is a non-invasive dental treatment that whitens teeth an average of four shades. Your treatment begins with a 20-minute consultation with Dr. William J. Schlotz, who will review dental history and take impressions to make customized, clear plastic whitening trays. About a week later, stop by the office to pick up your whitening treatment package and instructions on how to use it on your soon-to-be-sparkling mouth bones. The average length of the whitening treatment is about five weeks, and visible results become apparent after two weeks. You can apply the whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on your desired level of whitening. Consult with Dr. Schlotz for recommendations.
