Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
The network of dental professionals at Today’s Dental Today check families’ chomper health using progressive digital dental technology such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and computers in every room. During the 90- to 120-minute exam, the dentist thoroughly peruses mouthscapes in search of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer before taking intraoral photographs and a set of digital x-rays. Then, a skilled hygienist bathes teeth in a flurry of toothpaste and fluoride, sloughs off tartar between teeth with floss, and scrapes tongues free of schoolyard-inspired swear words.
Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
After Robert B. Meiser, DDS retired from dentistry, Dr. Jayashree Kyatam took over Austin Primary Dental, renovating the space by adding state-of-the-art equipment, fixtures, and furniture. It's all part of her plan to create a warm, welcoming environment where patients can expect the latest in industry techniques. Dr. Kyatam graduated from the Boston University's Goldman School of Dental Medicine, then visited and fell in love with the city of Austin in 2005. She has since attended numerous continuing-education courses to further hone her skills, becoming an expert in treatments such as the Six Month Smiles braces system and shot- and drill-free Lumineers.
Always considering her patients' comfort and convenience, Dr. Kyatam offers early-morning and lunchtime appointments and is committed to a same-day dental-emergency policy. Her treatment rooms are illuminated by an abundance of natural light and a chairside television, which allows guests to show off their healthy smiles by pretending to answer news anchors' interview questions.
West Houston Orthodontics does everything that you would expect, taming and aligning teeth using traditional braces and newer, more discreet methods like Invisalign. But the family-owned practice on Eldridge Parkway in the Energy Corridor actually manages to make teeth straightening fun, too. Surprising as it may sound, kids and orthodontically-challenged adults alike swear by West Houston Orthodontics’ methods, including patient contests and a kids club, complete with t-shirts and a prize wheel to reward tykes for taking care of their pearly whites. Most of the team members inside this bright, slightly sterile office have worked in the industry for a decade or longer, and they use the latest equipment and technologies to ensure fast, quality service, complete with a toothbrush at the end – if you’re good.
