The oral specialists at Case Family Dentistry cultivate a calm, comfortable atmosphere while they work to keep smiles of all ages camera ready with time-tested dental treatments. During the examination, one of the seasoned staffers thoroughly inspects the overall health of the teeth before administering a series of x-rays to scope out internal flaws and contraband containers of more than 4 ounces. Then they'll expunge uninvited plaque and bacteria from the mouth’s white picket fence with a vigorous cleaning before sending clients off to pleasantly emote.
With 32 years of experience under his plaque-banishing belt, Dr. George P. Franco Jr. treats teeth to a menu of mouth-improving ministrations. Less-than-pearly unwhites can freshen their façades with a Life-Like whitening kit, which contains trays, a whitening solution, and a pop-up dentist chair for easy at-home application. Though the entire treatment takes two weeks to complete, most mouths report a snowier shade after just three days.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
An alumnus of LSU's School of Dentistry and member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Ross Quartano, DDS, guides the staff at Bluebonnet Dental Care through aesthetic and dental-health services, including sedation dentistry. Inside the building's beige exterior with brick accents, treatment rooms house state-of-the-art technology, including digital x-rays, computer imaging, and an intraoral camera to capture crisp images of teeth and monitor the migratory patterns of gummy bears.
Dr. Mekari and his team of tooth technicians maintain chomper health with time-tested patient care and advanced dental technology. The one- to two-hour office visit commences with a thorough oral examination, during which a skilled tusk expert explores mouths for signs of oral cancer, plaque, cavities, and the tiny compartments where gummy bears stash their gold. After the premolar pop quiz, a technician snaps shots of your mouth pearls using the GXCB-500, a cone beam dental imaging system that allows Dr. Mekari to view interdental goings-on in full 3-D format, resulting in more comprehensive examinations in less time. Finally, a hygienist scrubs teeth in a flurry of flossing and polishing that removes the plaque and debris that toothbrushes leave behind, resulting in smiles that are sharper, shinier, and less likely to rust.
In the 14 years since he graduated dental school, Dr. Ken Morgan hasn't rested on his laurels. He's kept abreast of emergent technology and techniques, putting them to good use in his office. That's how he's able to perform such advanced treatments as dental implants, tooth-colored composite fillings, and durable veneers so thin they're nearly translucent. He also helps straighten out crooked grills with clear, custom-fit Invisalign braces, which guide teeth to their proper position while remaining virtually invisible.
