Dental Exams

Dr. Patel and our team of dental professionals will take the time to understand your concerns, comfort preferences, and coach you to optimal oral health during your visits. You’ll receive a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, and entire mouth. Your Chicago or Bloomingdale dentist will work with you on creating a detailed treatment plan to help you reach your perfect smile!

Importance of routine exams

Visiting your dentists for routine dental exams is critical for early detection of oral health issues and your overall health. During your reservation, our highly skilled Chicago and Bloomingdale dental professionals will scrutiny examine your cheeks, tongue, gums, and teeth for early signs of decay, gingivitis, bacteria, and oral cancer.

Most patients are recommended to see their dentist every six months; however, if you’ve been diagnosed with periodontal disease or have other delicate dental requirements, a Pure Dental Spa dentist may recommend more frequent visits to carefully monitor your oral health.

Incorporation of modern technology

Dentistry is a technologically advancing field and the professionals at Pure Dental Spa will ensure you have full access to the newest dental innovations. Our offices are fully equipped with the most modern and state-of-the-art equipment, including our 3 dimensional x-rays that provides a full range of images of your mouth and jaw.

A picture is worth a thousand words! In addition to x-rays, intraoral pictures will be taken during your initial dental exam. These pictures will deliver a visual glance of the teeth behind your smile. Dr. Rajul Patel and our team of dentists will educate and guide you through any problematic areas featured in the intraoral images.

Oral cancer screening

In our continuing efforts to provide the most advanced technology and the highest standard of care available to our patients, our practice is proud to announce the inclusion of the Velscope® exam as an integral part of initial comprehensive examinations.

One person dies every hour from oral cancer in the United States and the mortality rate has remained unchanged for more than 40 years. Late detection of oral cancer is the primary cause that both the incidence and mortality rates of oral cancer continue to increase. As with most other cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. Though tobacco use is a major predisposing risk factor, 27% of oral cancer victims have no lifestyle risk factors. According to the American Cancer Society, more women in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year (12,000 cases) than will be diagnosed with cervical cancer (<10,000 cases), and there are as many cases of oral cancer caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV 16/18), a sexually transmitted disease, as there are HPV related cases of cervical cancer. Clinical studies have determined that using an advanced oral cancer screening such as Velscope® improves the dental professionals’ ability to identify and evaluate suspicious areas at their earliest stages. Early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. The most common clinical signs are swelling, velvety white, red, or speckled patches in the mouth, unexplained bleeding, and numbness
