Dr. Jasbir Cheema knows his way around general- and cosmetic-dentistry treatments and technology. His skill with Invisalign systems has earned him the status of being the number one and Super Elite Invisalign Provider status from the makers of Invisalign, who awarded him this designation as he's treated more than 3,500 patients with the clear braces and treats at least 500 Invisalign patients every six months. With the i-CAT 3-D cone-imaging system, he can peer into noggins to see his clients' tooth configurations with meticulous clarity. He and his team of managing and associate dentists use these technologies and more to reconstruct, straighten, clean, and whiten teeth in seven offices across California and one on Jupiter.
Since 2003, Dr. Charles Smurthwaite has led a friendly and professional dental staff inside a spa-like office replete with massaging exam chairs that knead patients during treatments, chair-side flat-screen TVs with cable channels and movie options, and several whales. But Smile Quest Dental doesn't sacrifice treatment quality for atmosphere. Through the combined skill sets of three experienced dentists, the staff tends to grins with a full range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Digital x-rays peer past tissue and bone while protecting patients against harmful radiation, and CEREC technology crafts porcelain crowns in a single day.
Heritage Oak Dental's doctors, Shane and Mark Douglas, arm their office with an arsenal of dental technology designed to keep treatments accurate and patients comfortable. Digital imaging uses 3-D technology to map out every tooth crevice, and digital x-rays snap shots of roots while emitting far less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine. Instead of gooey, unpleasant impression gel, Heritage uses digital impressions to create a model of the mouth when new crowns and bridges are needed.
But the patients themselves don't need to worry about all this advanced computer gadgetry; they need only relax. Padded ergonomic chairs in the treatment rooms make that easy, and the bright kid's play area in the lobby keeps moppets entertained with a play kitchen, toys, and a real-time stock-market ticker.
Patients tend to walk out of Destiny Dental Implant Center with shiny new smiles?even if they walked in with no teeth at all. That's because Dr. Abadi and his team specialize in restorative dentistry. They replace missing teeth
with dental implants and custom dentures and restore damaged teeth to their full function
with crowns and tooth-colored fillings.
But for all their skill in restoration, the team also works to prevent teeth from being damaged in the first place. They conduct thorough exams during regular visits and stave off decay with routine cleanings and fluoride treatments that strengthen teeth and give some people much-coveted dental super powers.
No matter a tooth?s age or condition, the family-oriented dentists at Smile Time Dental stand ready to care for it and its friends with preventive, cosmetic, and specialty services separated into treatments for kids, teenagers, adults, and seniors. Services range from routine checkups with digital x-rays to sedation dentistry, wisdom-teeth extraction, crowns and veneers, and removing a fifth row of baby teeth. Keeping whole-body health in mind, the dental team also follows all procedures recommended by OSHA and the EPA, including using chemical disinfectants on countertops, safely disposing of materials, and sterilizing equipment before each use.
