At Smile Chicago, oral exams include the use of state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the most precise diagnosis. Your teeth and gums will be thoroughly evaluated, allowing Dr. Seidman to determine any problem areas and formulate an effective treatment plan. We recommend a routine oral exam twice a year to keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent serious dental issues in the future.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Since oral cancer can lead to life-threatening health risks, early detection is essential to develop a treatment plan that can eradicate it. Dr. Seidman and his team can provide you with a comprehensive oral cancer screening during your dental exam to identify any irregularities that may prove to be cancerous or pre-cancerous growths at the earliest stages. We use state-of-the-art VELscope technology to detect any warning signs of oral cancer. It is very important to have regular oral cancer screenings and to periodically examine the inside of your mouth for any abnormalities.
Routine dental cleanings can significantly reduce the risk of developing serious problems with your teeth and gums. We recommend at least two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health. Our skilled hygienists use some of the most advanced dental technology to thoroughly clean your teeth for a healthy, bright smile.
Many patients experience lingering effects of local anesthesia after a procedure that can sometimes last for hours. We offer OraVerse® to reduce the effects of numbness after a procedure, helping you chew and speak more comfortably in about half the time it typically takes. Dr. Seidman can inject OraVerse® immediately after your treatment when you are still numb from the anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.
At Smile Chicago, we offer complimentary fluoride treatments as a quick and easy way to help decrease the risk of developing cavities and tooth decay. Fluoride rinses at our practice can provide significant protection against bacteria along your teeth and gums. Fluoride treatments are just as important today as the regular rinses you may remember from elementary school!
At Smile Chicago, our priority is to provide you with the safest and most effective treatments while using comprehensive infection control procedures. To facilitate a sterilized and clean treatment process, we assure that every non-disposable dental instrument is properly cleaned and disinfected after each use. We use disposable instruments whenever we can for further protection. We sterilize all exposed counters and equipment in our treatment rooms and thoroughly disinfect all surfaces. We also meticulously wash our hands before and after treatments and use sterile gloves for each patient. Your safety and protection is our top concern.
Dental emergencies can be instigated by a variety of factors, including an abscess, infection, pain, or injury. These emergencies can occur at any time, and our dental team at Smile Chicago can provide immediate assistance to relieve discomfort and treat the affected area. If you feel you are suffering from a dental emergency and need urgent care, please call (312) 644-4321.
Conservative Periodontal Care
Scaling and root planing is a periodontal treatment that can prevent gum disease from getting worse and improve the overall health of your gums. This non-surgical procedure removes pockets of tartar and bacteria located deep within the gums and around the roots of the teeth. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Seidman uses a Diode Laser to seal the gums for faster healing time and minimized discomfort after treatment.
Sleep apnea can cause snoring and breathing pauses of up to 10 seconds or more while you sleep. If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause serious risks to your health, and lead headaches, fatigue, gastric reflux, and other symptoms that can affect your daily life. The condition can also increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and sudden cardiac death.
We offer effective sleep apnea treatment solutions that can keep a positive rate of air flowing through your breathing passages while sleeping. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your needs and formulate a customized treatment plan to help give you a healthier, more restful night’s sleep.
