Comprehensive Dentistry

Our Schaumburg dentists provide comprehensive care, which involves diagnosing and treating all general conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. They emphasize preventive care because it allows them to diagnose and treat problems early, utilizing the most conservative treatment plan possible. Early diagnosis also reduces your risk of needing more complex—and often more expensive—treatment in the future.

With our state-of-the-art technology, we can perform most general, restorative and cosmetic dental procedures right here in our office!

Digital X-rays & Panoramic X-rays

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable tool we use at our Schaumburg dentistry practice to assess your oral health. They emit less radiation than conventional x-rays, use small, comfortable sensors instead of sharp pieces of x-ray film and transmit the images directly to our computer screen in seconds.

We also have digital panoramic X-rays, which help us visualize your entire mouth instead of isolating selected areas. This full view is especially helpful in complex full-mouth restorations and in orthodontic treatment planning. We also use digital X-rays and panoramic x-rays during routine oral cancer screenings, because they allow our doctors to see possible tumors and abscesses that can go unnoticed during a visual exam.

Intraoral Camera

With the intraoral camera, you see exactly what we see in your mouth. We use this camera to guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options, keeping you fully informed every step of the way.

Soft Tissue Laser

Our minimally invasive soft tissue laser can be used in a variety of applications, from correcting a gummy smile to reducing the recovery time for deep cleanings, root canals and other soft tissue treatments. Laser therapy can even help shorten the duration and lessen the severity of canker sores and cold sores.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide creates a sense of well-being and giddiness when inhaled, which is how it earned the nickname “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide can make dental visits less intimidating for patients of all ages who experience anxiety about treatment.

  • Nitrous oxide is one of the safest anti-anxiety agents used in dentistry.
  • Administering nitrous oxide requires no more than a mask over the nose, which makes it an excellent option for children and for individuals who feel nervous about needles.
  • You’ll feel calm and relaxed almost immediately, but the effects are short-lived and can be completely reversed by breathing pure oxygen for a couple of minutes.

Practically Painless Injections

Did you know that most of the discomfort associated with numbing shots is actually caused by the rate of injection? The Wand, also known as CompuDent®, is a computer-controlled injection device that provides a steady flow of anesthesia, guaranteeing a slower, more comfortable numbing process every time. Best of all, The Wand looks and is even held like a ball-point pen—no sharp syringes in sight!

VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening

When it comes to oral cancer, early detection is key. Regular oral cancer screenings are an effective way to discover oral cancer at an early, highly curable stage. Our Schaumburg dentists screen for oral cancer during every check-up.

After conducting a thorough visual examination, we will use the handheld VELscope device to shine a blue light into your mouth and examine the tissues through a special eyepiece. This technology takes advantage of your mouth’s natural fluorescence, which is normally invisible, to indicate changes in the color or the structure of your oral tissues that might be indicative of abnormal cells. Digital X-rays also aid in the detection of oral cancer by enabling our dentists to see possible tumors and other problems associated with the jaw.

Restorative Dentistry

Things we often take for granted with healthy teeth—such as smiling, talking and eating the foods we love—can all become easier again with restorative dentistry. Our dentists can determine which restorative treatment or combination of treatments can give your smile a second chance.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Restorative Dental Treatments

  • Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
  • Porcelain Dental Crowns
  • Compete & Partial Dentures
  • Dental Implants
  • One-Appointment Root Canal Therapy

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns improve more than just the appearance of your smile—they restore damaged teeth and protect them for years! Crowns are a functional, long-lasting restorative solution for teeth that are misshapen, broken, worn or severely decayed. Dental crowns can be used alone or in conjunction with fixed dental bridges and dental implants.

In comparison with other restorative dentistry treatments, crowns are a relatively simple procedure. They usually require two appointments: the first to make a mold of your damaged tooth, and the second to place and polish your custom-made dental crown. Our Schaumburg dentists always take extra care during this second appointment to ensure that your new crown perfectly matches your other healthy teeth and feels comfortable and natural in your mouth.

Dental crowns are generally very strong restorations that can protect teeth for years. In fact, if we place a crown before your tooth fractures or becomes infected, it could save you from needing more invasive restorative treatments like an extraction, root canal or dental implant.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

If you struggle with uncomfortable dentures or a retainer with false teeth, dental implants could give your smile a second chance. Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically positioned in the jaw bone then topped with a natural looking restoration to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Implants can also improve the fit, function and stability of dentures.

Our Schaumburg dentists have completed training in both the surgical and restoration phases of implant dentistry, so you won’t have to visit multiple offices to complete the treatment you need. Call today to discover how dental implants can help you get your smile back and better than ever!

One-Appointment Root Canal Therapy

If you have a damaged tooth that is infected or is likely to become infected, you may benefit from root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a highly successful restorative treatment, and a tooth repaired with a root canal can last a lifetime. Especially when it’s topped off with a natural-looking crown or fixed bridge, no one will even notice a difference in your smile!

Root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, but the toothaches caused by an infected root are probably causing you more pain than the treatment will. We also provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation to keep you comfortable throughout your visit.

Periodontal (Gum) Care

Periodontal Health

According to the American Academy of Periodontology,gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. The early stage of gum disease, known as gingivitis, is characterized by mild symptoms ranging from red, swollen gums to gums that bleed every time you floss. Gingivitis is completely reversible with non-invasive treatments and home care. However, if left untreated, gingivitis will eventually progress to periodontitis, a more serious form of gum disease. Periodontitis has been linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, uncontrolled diabetes and birth complications, so it’s important to keep up with your regular cleanings and checkups.

Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not, and while surgery is still sometimes the best option, our Schaumburg dentists can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques first.

Periodontal Treatments

  • Diagnosis of Gum Disease
  • Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
  • Long-Term Maintenance Plans
