After receiving her BDS and DDS at the University of Illinois, Dr. Thakkar of Belvidere Dental Designs went on to receive training in orthodontics and implant restoration. Drawing on this training, she helms a team of dedicated dental professionals who provide comprehensive exams, remove plaque and tartar, create gleaming smiles, and much more. Belvidere Dental Designs provides general dentistry for all ages. They help patients relax using high-tech Wand anesthesia—a local anesthesia administered via computer.
Before bringing the pain to teeth stains, a complimentary consultation with one of First Choice Dental's dentists is necessary to make sure you don't have periodontal disease or gum conditions that would interfere with the whitening treatment. If eligible, impressions of your chompers will be taken so that customizable upper and lower plastic trays can be made. During a second visit with the dental defenders, the trays will be fitted and adjustments made if necessary. Once both trays fit their ivory horseshoes, you'll be given three tubes of whitening gel. Depending on the amount of stains from chocolate, cigarettes, or chocolate-flavored cigarettes recently devoured, you'll be advised to wear the trays anywhere from three hours a day to overnight for two weeks.
The dentists at North Aurora Dental Associates?Drs. Melissa Ledwidge, Ingy Nessim, and Irbad Chowdhury?unite around a simple philosophy: there's no quick replacement for preventive dental care. It's simply a lifelong process, one they facilitate with rigorous exams and oral cancer screenings. The dentists assist with any maladies preventative care fails to prevent, too. They tackle rogue cavities, for instance, with cutting-edge air abrasion so non-invasive, it rarely requires an anesthetic shot or a distracting Magic Eye puzzle. Meanwhile, they conquer deeper-seated decay with root canals, and their nightguards protect against unconscious teeth grinding. The dentists tend to the aesthetics of smiles, too, with cosmetic treatments such as light-activated Zoom! whitening.
Dr. Eman A. Shirazi has spent hours upon hours perfecting his ability to effortlessly insert dental implants, a technique he willingly shares with other dentists during lectures. And it is because of his commitment to his craft that he has not only earned the coveted Diplomat of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists title, but also membership into a variety of dental societies across the state and country.
Plus, Dr. Shirazi beautifies smiles with more than just dental implants. He also straightens crooked teeth with clear Invisalign retainers, erases food stains with whitening treatments, and helps teddy bears finally get some rest with sleep-apnea-prevention services.
Doctors John Dano and Mary Haupers and their smile-saving staff employ their powers of dental foresight with comprehensive preventative care. The 60-minute preventative session begins with a tartar-tackling cleaning that lets floss shimmy freely through newly polished mouth fences. An initial exam will determine teeth health and tattle-tell on any mouthy misbehavior before x-rays take a peek at your smile’s porcelain skeleton.
