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.
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.
After her practice was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Rupa Jolly became all the more determined to care for the community’s dental needs. She revived NOLA Dental Care and, today, she continues to improve smiles with preventative check-ups and x-rays, as well as dental implants, teeth whitening, and other cosmetic procedures. She also enrolls in continuing education courses in order to master the field’s most cutting-edge techniques and smile-inducing molar jokes.
At Lakefront Dental Care, Dr. Stephen Delahoussaye and Dr. Joseph Marino Jr. tend to grins with both general and cosmetic dentistry. Their general dentistry services include procedures such as root canals and cleanings, and their cosmetic services encompass tooth repair, implant tooth replacement, and Zoom! whitening. Dr. Delahoussaye and Dr. Marino stay current on technological developments, enabling them to perform techniques such as laser dentistry, which can address myriad issues while yielding benefits such as faster healing and reduced bleeding.
At Crescent City Dentistry, Dr. Cleopatra Thompson and her staff offer everything from veneers and crowns to deep cleanings and teeth whitening. What sets their office apart from other dentists is their ability to perform cosmetic procedures such as Botox and dermal-filler injections. The pairing gives patients the chance to take years off their faces and their smiles—all in one spot. She and her experienced team of dental professionals treat tending to both child and adult patients by using the latest digital dental technology. Complimentary transportation is also available for patients.
