Comprehensive Dental Care and Cleanings
Comprehensive Dental Exam
Regular dental cleanings are recommended to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, improving your overall oral health. Not only does this give Dr. Baeverstad and your hygienist the opportunity to spot areas of your mouth that need special attention, these visits are also effective in preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease.
We are proud to offer digital x-rays as part of your exam. These are more accurate, efficient and cost effective than older x-ray methods, while exposing you to less radiation.
An intraoral camera is the latest technological advance we use to observe and show you hard to reach areas of your mouth. Using this camera allows us to make a more accurate diagnosis of your dental needs in a shorter amount of time, which means less time in the chair for you!
Oral Cancer Screenings
We offer oral cancer screenings using the award-winning VELscope technology, which utilizes fluorescence visualization to detect pre-cancers, cancer, and other disease processes that might not be apparent to the naked eye.
Cosmetic + Restorative Care
Our practice uses white tooth-colored fillings to prevent any further decay or breakdown. Not only are tooth-colored fillings more esthetically pleasing, they result in a stronger tooth, leading to less corrosion.
Many patients still have silver covered fillings from a prior filling. Studies have shown that these result in a weaker tooth structure over time, therefore exposing the tooth to another cavity over time. The good news is that your silver colored fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored restorations. Our office would be happy to discuss this option with you.
Crowns + Bridges
Crowns can be a solution for more serious dental problems and can be used as a solid long-term solution, making a smile appear as good as new. This treatment can repair damage caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. The goal is to provide you with a functional bite and restorations that look like natural teeth.
Bridges would be used to replace missing teeth which may be a result of an injury or decay. They attach to adjacent natural teeth to ensure a stable and secure fit.
You may need a root canal treatment to clean out tooth decay while saving the healthy parts of your tooth. This will prevent further decay and help alleviate the pain in your infected tooth. We work with the best specialists in Chicago for molar root canals.
We know there is a common myth that root canals are painful, but you may be surprised to learn that they are similar to getting a cavity filled in terms of discomfort. You can rest assured knowing that this relatively painless procedure can help remedy the damage to your tooth.
Dental sealants are an effective way to prevent decay by painting a thin coating on the chewing surface of the back teeth. This essentially seals the grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that is hard to reach with brushing and flossing.
A dental implant is placed in the jawbone and replaces the root of a missing tooth. It acts like an anchor to support a crown, which is custom fitted to the implant and the surrounding teeth.
Our office utilized Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe. It is not intended to put you to sleep.
Night guards may be recommended for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night. This treatment option can help limit damage to the teeth and pain in the joint and chewing muscles. Our night guards are nearly invisible when worn and are self-adjusting for increased comfort.
We believe all of our patients deserve the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile. Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners as orthodontic devices to adjust teeth with less disruption in your daily routine Contact us today to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
Professional whitening is easy and safe with Opalescence™ Boost™ whitening treatment. You will notice a brighter, whiter smile in just two or three 20-minute sessions in our office. In addition, we offer customized take-home whitening trays if that option benefits you.
