The Value of a Smile
Smiles By Valentina, a dental practice, nestled in the heart of Re3 Salon and Spa at the UTC.
There may be a reason why dentists and dental surgeons have received a bad rap over the years, but one local dental practice is breaking through traditional fears and leading the way to a new era of dental surgery.
With dental pioneer Dr. Valentina Obradovic at the helm, Adriatic Dental in San Marcos has taken virtually all the pain out of gum procedures, replacing painful blade-and-suture surgery with a new breakthrough laser therapy.
Using the latest technology available, Adriatic Dental encourages the body to heal itself naturally, helping regenerating bone and the gums’ soft tissue instead of cutting it away. This precise and holistic alternative lases away infection, eliminating the need for stiches, and allows the patient to return to work the next day. And the San Marcos-based practice is at the forefront of this therapy. In fact, it was one of the first offices in the area to obtain this cutting-edge laser and offer the procedure.
Some 80 percent of the population has a form of gum disease, but many people avoid the dentist because of bad experiences in the past. For patients concerned about dental surgery, laser therapy can be life-changing. Instead of ignoring the problem, these patients can save their teeth, preserve their natural smile and avoid the potentially life-threatening effects of gum disease.
While laser therapy is changing the face of dental surgery, Dr. Obradovic adds that preventive dentistry can not only lessen the need for surgery—it can add 10 years to a person’s life.
“Good oral health care plays a big part in your good overall health,” she says. “With preventive services such as regular dental exams and cleanings, we can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy.”
And Dr. Obradovic doesn’t stop at preserving healthy teeth and gums. Her practice is consumed with making its patients feel as comfortable as possible while doing so. In fact, Adriatic Dental goes the extra mile to ensure its patients are smiling at the end.
“We are also concerned with your comfort,” Dr. Obradovic says, “and take great strides to ensure your visits with us are something you look forward to.”
Looking forward to the dentist? Imagine that.
