The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
Drawing from more than 10 years of dental experience, Dr. Alvaro Lazo emphasizes gentle dentistry aided by advanced technology. Before performing dental services such as root canals, extractions, or cleaning, technicians reveal inner-mouth workings with digital radiography, which reduces the radiation exposure of traditional radiographs by up to 90%. Laser cavity detection and treatment seek out and stop tooth decay without the use of drills that can inadvertently tap into a tooth's precious oil reserves.
Dr. Parker, a fellow of the World Congress of Microdentistry with more than 30 years of experience, grants confidence to smiles with a Sapphire whitening treatment designed to lighten fangs up to 10 shades over the course of one office visit. During the procedure, which lasts up to 90 minutes, a seasoned technician lacquers choppers with a peroxide-based Sapphire gel that gently melts away stains caused by coffee, tobacco use, and permanent-marker-chewing habits. If necessary, they'll shine the beams of a Sapphire light on slathered tusks to enhance the gel's whitening power. This gentle procedure, unlike incisor tanning beds, does not rely on any harmful UV rays, yielding results that may last for up to a few years when followed up with proper oral care.
Dr. Timothy Sluser and company practice a holistic philosophy that melds maintenance, aesthetics, and comfort to create and maintain attractive, healthy smiles. Along with general dentistry services such as fillings, bridges, and orthodontics, the smile surgeons at all three locations perform cosmetic procedures such as implanting lifelike porcelain veneers, reshaping teeth for finer facial contours, and installing oral black lights for a brighter shine. The father of four young sons himself, Dr. Sluser keeps abreast of the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry, and does everything in his power to ensure nervous children enjoy a stress-free visit.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A full exam, including x-rays and photos of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Ali Manesh and the friendly staff at Accurate Family Dental help patients of all ages keep chompers healthy by emphasizing education and preventive care. During the exam, Dr. Manesh descends into facial caverns, seeking out cavities, gum disease, and molars arguing over the handling of gobstoppers. A dental tech snaps x-rays to expose hidden goings-on along roots and under enamel while creating an important dental record to help track progress and preempt underlying issues. A skilled hygienist bathes teeth in a whirlpool of foam, flossing between each tooth and sloughing enamel to free gum lines from debris and tongues from nightmares of sticking to frozen telephone poles.
