Wrigleyville Dental is Growing with the Times

Wrigleyville Dental, the practice of Bernice Teplitsky, DDS, is using the latest research and equipment. In addition to low-radiation digital X-rays and photography, other improvements include the SMART amalgam removal protocol used during every mercury-amalgam filling removal to ensure the safety of patients, staff and the environment.

       Here are a few other state-of-the-art techniques available at Wrigleyville Dental:

Using a simple dental device, some sleep apnea issues can be solved. Patients report feeling more rested, eliminating snoring, decreasing certain medication and having more energy.

       A frenectomy removes a piece of tissue tying the tongue to the floor of the mouth that prevents normal function. A three-minute laser procedure can free the tongue and correct many issues for infants, children and adults.

       With platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), a sample of the patient’s blood is placed in a centrifuge to yield a fibrin clot full of healing white blood cells that is placed back into the body to speed up healing and prevent dry sockets and other complications after an extraction.

       The thought of metal braces makes most people not want to consider straightening teeth. BPA-free aligners are quicker, removable and clear, so no one can see them.
