The thought of snow-free winters drew Dr. Sandeep V. Patel back to Daytona Beach from New York City, where he earned his doctorate in dental surgery from New York University. At his practice, My Daytona Dental, he performs a full slate of dental services that he honed while working on the Upper West Side. His specialties range from preventive exams and teeth whitening to veneers, implants and cavity fillings.
New Smyrna Cosmetic & Family Dentistry dazzles teeth into health and cleanliness with an array of techniques such as dental exams, teeth cleanings, x-rays, and intensive chemical whitenings. For pearly-white beauty shots, dental doyens take three x-rays, a panoramic shot and one of each bitewing, checking for tooth decay, gum disease, and the symmetrical composition of pastoral landscapes. After the x-rays comes an extensive exam, in which teeth are scrutinized for decay, apertures are screened for oral cancer, and periodontal pockets are inspected for stowaway gummy worms. Capping off the cuspid adventure, mouth bones are treated to a 30- to 45-minute bath, an invigorating cleansing aimed at removing loitering plaque and tartar and reinstituting curfews for molars.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The dentist and his/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.

Helmed by board-certified orthodontic specialist Dr. Battle, Premier Orthodontics guides rebellious mouth knives back into regimental alignment using the most up-to-date tooth technology. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. During an initial 60-minute exam, the mouth magicians will determine the best course of treatment for each patient, using x-rays, and photos of the mouth terrain, paving the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate Invisalign aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
