Though steel teeth may be less likely to develop cavities, they make airport-security lines and magnet eating nearly impossible to enjoy. Nurture the grill you were given with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a dental exam, cleaning, and x-rays at Hanson Place Dental Associates in Brooklyn (a $195 value).
Hanson Place Dental Associates safeguards smiles with continually updated dental techniques and more than 36 years of dentistry expertise. X-ray technicians snap highly detailed images at the beginning of each appointment, which help dentists monitor the general health of teeth by calling out cavities and exposing molars subsisting on a diet of mini marshmallows. An up to 20-minute oral exam allows dentists to delve more deeply into worrisome spots and check tooth-hugging gum lines for signs of periodontal disease. A squeaky-clean spin with a cleaning tool restores ivories to unsullied luster, and a comprehensive chat with the office administrator answers patients' questions about any recommended treatments and the benefits of implanting a second row of teeth. Clients should arrive to their appointments 15 minutes early to fill out new-client paperwork.
