At Medhat Dental Excellence, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.



Cleanings


Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.

Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist at Medhat Dental Excellence will remove:
•  Plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth. Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease and gingivitis
•  Tartar from teeth surfaces. Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become hardened on the teeth; its removal requires scaling
•  Surface stains from teeth through polishing

Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Dr. Ramin A. Medhat will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.

Examinations


Regular examinations, by Dr. Ramin A. Medhat, help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:
•  Gum disease screening
•  Oral cancer screening
•  Visual tooth decay evaluation
•  Gum pocket measurement and tracking
•  X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues

Regular examinations by Dr. Ramin A. Medhat are very important for your health.

X-rays (Radiographs)


Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Your Chicago dentist can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still erupting.

Dentistry for Kids


Kids are very sensitive and prone to oral issues; therefore, it is important to bring them in for regular dental exams.During our dental assessment, we thoroughly check your kid's teeth and examine the risk of tooth decay. During the exam, we might apply fluoride or sealant in order to mitigate the tooth decay risk.

Dental Sealants


Getting dental sealants is a quick procedure and is over in less than half an hour. The application is simple and completely pain-free. Before sealants can be applied, the teeth need to be cleaned. If there are any cavities already existing in the molars, these will need fillings before sealant application.
Learn more about Dental Sealants.

Oral Cancer Screening


Your mouth is part of the oral cavity, which also includes your lips, cheek lining, gums, front part of your tongue, floor of the mouth and the hard palate (roof of your mouth). The throat (pharynx) starts at the soft part of the roof of your mouth and continues back into your throat. It includes the back section of your tongue as well as the base where the tongue attaches to the floor of your mouth.

During your dental visit, Dr. Ramin A. Medhat can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Medhat Dental Excellence can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Periodontal Health


One of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not. Annual exams should include periodontal charting and comprehensive x-rays to monitor any bone loss that might have occurred. If you aren't sure whether you have gum disease, schedule your check-up today and let us evaluate your gum and bone health.

Periodontal Maintenance


We here at Medhat Dental Excellence are more than prepared to take you through periodontal maintenance. Periodontal maintenance refers to a thorough cleaning procedure, which is performed to tackle deep-seated bacterial activity. This dental treatment procedure is vital as it halts the progress of periodontal disease.
Learn more about Periodontal Maintenance.

Periodontal Care


The word periodontitis indicates inflammation around the teeth. This occurs when bacteria get stuck to the surface and in between the teeth. When treating periodontitis, the primary concern is to remove the bacteria from the teeth and prevent any bone or tissue destruction. To do the same, we carry out a scaling and debridement process to clean the gumline.
Learn more about Periodontal Care.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea


Sleep apnea is a condition that affects how you breathe when sleeping. During sleep, normal breathing can be interrupted for ten seconds or more, possibly hundreds of times during a single night. Untreated sleep apnea prevents you from getting enough deep, restorative sleep. Without enough deep sleep you may be sleepy, lack mental sharpness and be less productive. Long term health effects can be serious, including weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Learn more about Sleep Apnea.

Oral Appliance Therapy


At Medhat Dental Excellence, we fit oral custom-made appliances that restore your alertness, improve your smile, and invigorate your health. If you snore loudly, you might not be getting the required amount of sleep to stay healthy.
