Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident 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 takeoff, 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.
With decades of dental experience, founder Dr. Kulwant S. Bedi and the staff at Artistic Dental Associates strive to make patients comfortable and smiles bright, injecting kindness, enthusiasm, and humanity into the dental practice. During an exam (D0140), mouths are meticulously searched top to bottom for malevolent plaque, and x-rays (D0272) stealthily seek cavities that are wreaking havoc on teeth's interiors. Finally, Dr. Bedi and his teeth-savvy staff send you off with a take-home teeth-whitening tray (D9972), a process that takes one hour and can make teeth up to eight shades whiter, significantly increasing the chances of landing the job to host the local Monster Truck & Ballet Awards
Dr. Scott Arnold, trained in a bevy of mouth-bone specialties, including implants, lasers, and computerized dentistry, leads a team of skilled dental-health professionals into battle against smile-tarnishing foes. The comprehensive exam includes examination of tooth troubles (decay, tumors, cysts) as well as oral-cancer screening and a spot check of existing restorations. Bitewing x-rays further probe gums, teeth, and mouth, and a full cleaning removes the plaque that obscures teeth from shining as brightly as a sheet of burning tinfoil.
To bolster her 12 years of experience, Dr. Bijal Joshi, a former faculty member at UCLA Dental School and a current staff dentist at St. John's, regularly attends lectures and courses that maintain her arsenal of skills. Dr. Joshi then brings her knowledge of the latest in dental technology to her practice, which has a modern sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements and uses pure bottled water, instead of tap water or milk, in its dental units. She uses oral sedation and laughing-gas technology in her family-oriented practice, gussying up the chompers of children, adults, and households' pet tooth fairies alike with a variety of services.
With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.
At Wesley Chapel Dentistry, Dr. Kalarickal and his dedicated team provide professional dental care in a tranquil setting. As specialists in the Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment, the resident brighteners can coax even the most stubborn of molars into shifting an average of eight shades. The Zoom! process uses a light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel designed to remove discoloration of tooth enamel, leaving behind a warm contrast between rosy-hued gums and their respective gumcessories. The complete procedure takes less than an hour, and the office extends patients the option to watch television, listen to music, or simply kick back during their whitening. Post-procedure, teeth don a bright new mantle, and, with proper care, will display a long-lasting lack of hue.
