At Aesthetic & Special Care Associates, doctors Keith Nguyen and Jeffrey F. Rutledge prod at plaque buildup to leave mouth pearls polished and healthy. During an initial exam, one of the dental docs will visually assess choppers' vital signs, checking for evidence of periodontal disease, decay, or hidden wiretaps and recommending a proper course of treatment for alleviating any anomalies. Bitewing x-rays allow the cuspid custodian to delve deeper into each tooth's inner workings, utilizing digital radiology to limit exposure to potentially harmful radiation. The one-hour treatment is then capped with a meticulous molar cleaning, which diligently purges each meat masher of plaque and buildup?a process designed to leave patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
