- $87 for Dental Exam, Cleaning, and X-rays ($300 Value)
During the roughly 90-minute visit, the dentist checks teeth for decay and gums for periodontal disease. He also snaps digital x-rays to look at root positions and to find any bone loss. After the exam, a hygienist clears away plaque and tartar with a basic cleaning.
Optima Dental Care
Dr. Scott Johnson believes the best treatment is prevention, and so he looks at every single tooth on his patients’ sweet shark tattoos before examining the patients’ mouths to hunt down decay and gum disease. Afterward, he prevents future enamel damage with fluoride treatments and educates patients on proper brushing and flossing. But even though the dentist stresses preventive treatment, he's fully prepared to deal with dental miscues. Natural-colored fillings repair cavities, and dental implants replace missing teeth altogether. Patients can also spruce up their smiles with Zoom whitening treatments or conceal cracks behind porcelain veneers.
