Dental Exams in Wicker Park, IL

The American Dental Association and our dentists—Drs. Krishna Gopisetty, Rajesh Devisetti, and Bhavik Lakhani—recommend two preventive dental appointments per year for best results.

Your dentist provides a visual exam at your dental checkup and periodically takes x-rays. Through x-rays, we can compare oral health changes since your last visit. X-rays also aid in diagnosing conditions, such as emerging tooth decay.

We provide an oral cancer screening as well.

Suppose you’re predisposed to cavities or present with weakened tooth enamel. Your Wicker Park dentist can provide a dental sealant to keep bacteria and plaque away from the tooth structure. In addition, a fluoride treatment strengthens your teeth, helping to prevent enamel loss and future fractures and chips.

If you’re diagnosed with a condition like a dental cavity or gingivitis, your dentist will discuss treatment options with you, including tooth-colored fillings and specialized teeth cleanings.
