Dental surgery is often a procedure that people try to forget about as soon as possible, but that’s not the case with the Dental Specialists of South Loop and North Shore!

The calming atmosphere at both locations complements the state-of-the-art technology and highly professional dental staff. Whether we are placing dental implants, lengthening pre-existing dental crowns or painlessly extracting a tooth, our advanced technology and exceptional training ensures high precision free of discomfort.

Cone beam computed tomography, abbreviated as CBCT, provides us with three-dimensional, non-invasive imaging in order to display the details of the patient’s bone structure and tooth orientation. With this information, we are able to determine the most accurate diagnoses and treatment for the patient. The Cone Beam CT also helps prevent complications in impacted tooth extractions, dental implant procedures and root canals.

With increased accuracy and care comes less post-procedural pain, our patients can quickly return to their daily lives without the distraction from pain!

With a similar focus on exceptional care, our Carl Zeiss endodontic surgical microscopes provide us with pristine magnification and illumination. The revolutionary microscope produces real-time imaging necessary for delicate dental procedures such as root and pulp canals. These microscopes also lead to more targeted gum incisions during gingival grafting, resulting in a lower amount of incisions and ultra-precise sutures. The high-definition video quality allows us to keep careful track of the finest details in microsurgeries, well beyond what is possible with the naked eye.

All of our dental radiographs and x-rays are digital, resulting in a tenth of the exposure time and about a sixth of the radiation versus a traditional radiological scan. As reported in a recent article in the Journal of the American Dental Association, digital radiography offers many advantages over traditional imaging technology. Most importantly, it allows the dentist and dental team to review, enhance, and refine the images without having to take additional x-rays and scans. This optimization means patients spend less time waiting in pain for the proper diagnosis and treatment!

Dr. De’Avlin V. Olguin, Dr. Jamal Flowers and Dr. Ashutosh Kaushik are experts in these technologies and provide unmatched care. They walk their patients through the process from start to finish to establish a high level of comfort and understanding. Our doctors and state-of-the-art technology work together to create a painless, relaxed experience for all of our patients!
