Humans developed smiles as a way to deflect predators in the wild and former bosses in the grocery store. Protect yourself with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a comprehensive dental exam, x-rays, and a teeth cleaning at Dentex Dental, located at Liberty Place (a $205 value).
Dentex Dental's tooth technicians frequently attend dental lectures and conventions to stay on top of their tooth-tidying game, and they foster a clean environment by sterilizing their instruments to the standards of the American Dental Association. To start, dental detectives investigate enamel nooks during a scrupulous exam that aims to unmask complications such as oral cancer and gum disease.
Specialists then return tusks to their showroom sheen by cleaning, polishing, and liberating teeth from sticky plaque or the vice-like grip of an overbearing mustache. Using specially designed instruments, hygienists also target and remove hard-to-reach tartar that forms above and below the gum lines. X-rays snap detailed shots of oral structures to expose issues undetectable to the human eye, such as bone loss, tooth decay, and the ghosts of baby teeth.
Dentex Dental’s team of dentists emphasizes the importance of disease prevention, arming their clients with information on proper brushing habits, flossing techniques, and lifestyle choices during comprehensive exams. Of course, should a client succumb to cavities, gum disease, or having their teeth sealed shut with taffy, the pros will employ the latest technologies to help treat the problem at hand. They also offer a range of cosmetic services, including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
