Esthetix Dental Spa's roster of experienced dentists and staff keeps teeth smiling brightly and munching soundly with preventative and cosmetic services. During the 60- to 90-minute treatment, a friendly dental assistant ushers patients from the lobby to a treatment room for a pair of digital x-rays. The bitewing x-rays snap a portrait of how upper and lower teeth align, and the periapical shots reveal the entire tooth from crown to root tip, as well as any potential problems or gremlins that linger below the gum line in the jaw's jazzy speakeasy. With the digital images projected onto a computer screen, dentists can better illuminate results and counsel patients on overall oral health. During the full prophylaxis cleaning, plaque and tartar evacuate their illegal residence on enameled estates, fleeing as dental hygienists scale teeth surfaces by hand or electronically with breathy 4 a.m. phone calls. A final buff leaves choppers feeling smooth and clean, as if a convoy of mini zambonis detoured over mouths.
