Dental Exams and Cleanings in the Chicago Loop

An integrative, preventive, and educational informative CHOICE for your health

Lifelong dental health and wellness start here

At Choices in Dentistry, we realize the best thing we can do as a dental practice is to help our patients better understand the connection between dental health and whole-body wellness. This all starts with our thorough, gentle, and integrative approach to dental exams and cleanings.

We never judge. Even if it’s been years since your last cleaning or exam, you’ll leave our office feeling confident about what the future holds for your teeth and gums. We don’t lecture patients about needing to floss more. In fact, that’s the opposite of integrative care. We will evaluate what you’re doing right and point out areas where you can improve. Remember, flossing isn’t the only answer. In our integrative office, we believe alternative treatments might be what works for you. 

You always have a CHOICE. 

These aren’t like any dental exams and cleanings you’ve had before. Discover the difference for yourself at Choices in Dentistry. Call (312) 368-8771 to schedule your complimentary meet-and-greet session.

Your dental exam and cleaning at Choices in Dentistry

At our convenient Chicago Loop office, cleaning your teeth is much more than removing plaque and tartar. We know that biofilm matters so we always offer a microscopic screening. We provide tooth cleanings and exams that go beyond simply removing plaque and tartar. We want you to leave your teeth cleaning and exam feeling confident about your dental health and the steps you can take to improve it moving forward.

Your cleaning and exam includes:

1. We’ll evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and tongue in traditional ways, measure pockets and note inflammation. Then we’ll offer integrative protocols like a screening of your biofilm with our Phase Contrast microscope and detailed salivary analysis from OralDNA.com. All this will will not only help us plan your future dental care, it will provide valuable insight to systemic connections. 

2. Your teeth will be cleaned and polished and your gums will be evaluated for inflammation. This helps prevent gum disease and removes cavity-causing bacteria.

3. We’ll take a look at your bite and airway. This can reveal the source of sleep apnea, TMJ, and chronic headaches, among other conditions most people don’t realize are affected by their dental health.

4. If needed, we’ll take high-definition and low-exposure x-rays to further evaluate the health of your teeth and plan follow-up treatments.

5. We’ll help you establish or improve your at-home dental hygiene routine. If you make products on your own, we’ll review if they are the right ones, consider adding ozone oils, and perhaps high-tech treatments like Perio Protect.

6. We will prioritize any recommendation into things you should do now, what is great preventive care and what is ultimate care. We will be overly thorough, give lots of information, then help you decide how to fit it into your life balancing both your time and your budget. And of course, we leave plenty of time with your dentist to discuss your health and any issues troubling you, as well as ask questions.
