General Dentistry with Dr. Jonathan Yahav
Dr. Yahav is thoroughly qualified for all types of dental work. Prevention is power, and quite often – the health of the mouth begins with preventative work. Preventative measures include teeth cleaning, scaling and periodontal maintenance, fissure sealants, fluoride treatments, root canals smoking cessation programs (in partnership with the patients’ family physician), halitosis (bad breath) assessment and treatment, oral cancer screening and prevention, herpetic lesions (cold sores), aphotic ulcers (canker sores) as well as decay prevention. Dr. Yahav also provides a cutting-edge ozone treatment called Healozone for patients that are suffering with hypersensitive teeth.
At the Chicago Smile Center, we place strong emphasis on educating patients to understand and appreciate the best preventative oral care. It’s simple, daily proper oral hygiene and healthy nutrition are fundamental in maintaining oral health. Regular visits to the dental office for cleaning and examinations give the dentist an opportunity to detect serious conditions or diseases in their early stages, some of which you might not notice until they worsen. Therefore, it is imperative that you visit the dentist for a better chance to restore your oral health.
We perform a comprehensive series of dental procedures, including, but not limited to: tooth extractions, emergencies involving trauma to the face and jaws, and other small surgical procedures that are within the scope of a general practice and are required in order to restore oral health. We understand the emotional impact of surgery on patients and we approach this with kindness and compassion
These services are intended to provide comfort and relaxation for those individuals who approach the dental office with fear and apprehension, as well as for lengthy and challenging procedures which otherwise might tire the patients unnecessarily.
We provide dental services under conscious sedation in the form of nitrous oxide (“Sleeping gas”) and/or medication, and under general anesthesia administered and monitored by specialized medical staff in anesthesia clinics.
