"I would highly recommend Oakbrook Dental and Dr. Habib Rahemtulla to individuals and families for their dental care and treatment. I would also like to give high praises to my dental hygienist, Kelly Skladanek. She is very gentle, super friendly, thorough and professional. She will educate you on proper dental care and hygiene while thoroughly cleaning your teeth. Oakbrook Dental is the BEST!!"
Oakbrook Dental was such a great experience. When I first stepped foot into the office, Kim and Judy had a smile on their face and greeted me so kindly. I then met my dental assistant Laura who made me feel very relaxed and calm at my visit. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment which I very much appreciate being as anxious as I am. I then met Dr. Patel who was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and she made me feel very comfortable as well. I would recommend OakBrook Dental to everyone I know! :)
Teeth cleanings, oral exams and x-rays are the heart of preventive care. First, one of our hygienists will remove plaque from your teeth, clean and polish them, and floss in between to remove any debris. Then, one of our doctors will examine your mouth for signs of common oral health problems. X-rays may also be taken to look for hidden issues that are not obvious with a visual exam.
Fluoride treatments are the best way to reverse minor tooth decay and strengthen your enamel. Fluoride helps “remineralize” and strengthen your teeth, rebuilding enamel that has been weakened by the first stages of decay. During treatment, a fluoride-rich gel will be painted onto your teeth, then rinsed away. This painless, non-invasive treatment takes only 5 minutes, and can be done as part of a routine cleaning.
Dental sealants consist of a strong, transparent resin that’s placed onto your rear teeth and hardened using a UV light. This resin creates a clear barrier that stops bacteria, food, and oral acid from contacting your teeth, thereby preventing the formation of cavities. With proper oral hygiene, dental sealants can protect your teeth for up to 10 years.
All of our preventive appointments include oral cancer screenings. We will use an intraoral camera to look for lesions, discolored patches of skin and any other irregularities that could indicate a potential issue, giving you peace of mind. In the rare case that we find an abnormality during an oral cancer screening, we will ensure that you get proper treatment for any issues.
Professional cleanings help remove plaque and tartar from surfaces of your teeth that are often too difficult to reach with a toothbrush or floss. These cleanings also give our dentists a chance to examine your mouth and check for signs of common oral health issues. Without a professional cleaning, you’ll be much more prone to developing cavities and/or gum disease.
The American Dental Association recommends that most patients visit the dentist every six months. Some patients, such as those with gum disease, may need to see the dentist more frequently. Routine visits will ensure that your mouth is a healthy environment for you teeth and gums.
If you don’t visit the dentist regularly, we won’t be able to check for common oral health issues and your risk of developing problems like tooth decay and gum disease will be much higher. No matter how well you clean your teeth, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach spaces, and only professional dentists have the tools to remove harmful bacteria from these areas.
