Led by Drs. S. Samuel and D. Fahmy, the certified staff at Endless Smile Dental, polishes ivories while ensuring patient ease, gentle handling, and clear explanation of procedures. One-hour examinations begin with a review of the client's dental history and family tree, followed by a Vizilite oral-cancer screening on indicative spots such as lips, tongues, and gums. Precise measuring of each tooth's bone level helps to detect periodontal disease, and a thorough search for cavities keeps oral antagonists at bay. Saving mouths from the electromagnetic waves that create supervillains, the tooth technicians administer radiation-free, digital x-rays that unveil signs of infection or bone loss. After successful jaw sleuthings, cleanings scrub away built-up plaque and tartar. Patients diagnosed with periodontal disease may opt for a deep cleaning beginning at an additional $120.
At OC Dental Center and OC Smile, which has three locations in the Orange County area, the team of dentists restores the smiles of patients young and old in an ultramodern facility with massage chairs and flat-screen televisions. Lush, Tuscan-style environs accented with rich murals provide a refreshing contrast to the sterile decor and loose teeth scattered throughout most dentist offices. Low-radiation digital x-rays represent OC's commitment to safe, up-to-the-minute technology, which also includes the latest teeth-whitening treatments and Waterlase, a laser-based treatment that can eliminate the need for drilling. Additionally, most of the offices have bilingual staffs who are able to guide patients through visits in both English and Spanish.
The dentists at Bay Dental incorporate technology into their slate of services, from routing checkups to veneers. They search for hidden cavities using digital x-rays with 90% less radiation that traditional x-rays, and closely examine the entire mouth using an intraoral camera. They also use a CEREC machine to create new teeth and Hummel figurines out of porcelain that can be applied to cracked, decayed, or chipped chompers for an eye-catching smile.:m]]
