The Refresh Dental and Dental Express networks brighten chomper futures with professional exams, cleanings, and x-rays that illuminate the path to lasting oral health. Technicians examine ivories for obstacles to mouth happiness including decay and gum disease, scraping away stains and deposits, and burnishing surfaces with polishing compound. A fluoride treatment imparts teeth with the strength to defeat candied apples cursed with sentience, and four bitewing x-rays reveal a clearer picture of your mouth’s design and lay a foundation for future care.
Nicholas L. Hammermeister DDS draws on more than 10 years of experience in helping patients overcome virtually every dental challenge. He repairs cavities with tooth-white composite resins and replaces missing teeth with porcelain implants. Invisalign braces nudge teeth into healthier positions while remaining virtually undetectable. Preventive exams and x-rays help kids and adults maintain lifelong dental health.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
Hudec Dental's justice league of dentists and hygienists stave off tooth decay and preserve mouth sparkles through a variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental practices. Cleanings executed by a trusted enamel advocate expunge teeth of plaque, tarter, and Lego-block buildup, abating risk of gum disease and cavities. A tooth technician then carefully analyses each gumstone, investigating the likelihood of infection, worn-out dental work, and tooth decay. During 15- to 30-minute whitening appointments, a slathering of extra-strength bleaching gel blanches mouth bones until they shine as brightly as an Einstein going supernova. Hudec's office is open Monday–Friday, offering extended evening hours until 7:00pm on Thursday.
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. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions 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 $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
As she plunked accounting formulas into a calculator during another long night of studying, college student Lisa Browning found herself drifting into daydreams about the day she changed someone's life. At the dental practice where she worked part-time, a woman in her mid forties had recently arrived with a mouth filled with dentures. Having worked her way up from receptionist to de facto dental assistant, Browning helped install implants and restore both dental arches with fixed bridgework. At the post op appointment, Browning saw a complete change in the patient—hair done, makeup on, fashionably dressed, and radiating with confidence—all thanks to a new smile. Browning tried, and failed, to derive a similar sense of satisfaction from the dry formulas before her on the textbook page. Browning soon scrapped accounting, telling her calculator "it's not you, it's me," and enrolling at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Today, her expertise in general and restorative dentistry—as well as cosmetic treatments—has earned her recurring appearances in the Guide to America's Top Dentists. She is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, whose members undergo continual education each year beyond the requirements mandated by state dental boards or federal anti-frowning regulations.
