Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. At Gahanna Dental or Affordable Dentistry, the resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, and stains, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting. 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 take-off, 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. After a professional oral exam and cleaning, guests are then free to leave with newfound confidence, enabling themselves to step up to the plate and bite whatever life throws at them.
Since receiving her D.D.S. degree in 1993, Dr. Sheila Shahamat has pursued many forms of dentistry, including cosmetic and orthodontic. Patients of Crown Point Dental Care can take advantage of Dr. Shahamat's advanced studies by augmenting their smiles with services that range from dental implants and TMJ treatments to Invisalign and Zoom! whitening. Ever conscious of minimizing risk to patients, the office only employs distilled water and instruments that weren't also used to excavate the cursed tomb of a pharaoh.
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 and photos ($34), 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.
