General Dentist in Highland Park, IL
At Dr. Boshes office, your family’s dental needs are our top priority. Whether it’s time for your bi-annual cleaning and exam, gum disease treatment, tooth repair, or any other issue, you and your family face, Dr. Boshes and his staff can gently and efficiently care for you.
Your dental home care is essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. It’s also critical to have a professional cleaning and exam at least twice a year. Our highly trained dental hygienists use the most modern techniques to address the plaque buildup you can’t clean at home. At these appointments, we will evaluate the health of your gums and teeth, provide an oral cancer screening and assess other concerns. We use state-of-the-art digital x-rays to reduce your exposure and to give us the highest quality imaging so we can spot problem areas as soon as they arise.
Tooth-Colored Filling with the SOLEA laser
At Dr. Boshes office we are always looking for opportunities to enhance our patient’s’ experience. We use the unique SOLEA LASER to remove decay and prepare teeth for fillings. SOLEA is the technological breakthrough patients, and dentists have been hoping for, in that it often replaces the traditional drill. For you, this means many procedures can be done without anesthesia injections, and without the drilling noise.
We have been using lasers for over ten years, and the addition of the SOLEA is remarkable. (We are one of the few offices in Illinois to offer this technology.) Many types of fillings benefit from the SOLEA system, such as composites, or tooth-colored fillings, which gives us the ability to restore decayed, broken, misaligned or discolored teeth efficiently. We can match or change the color and shape of the tooth to enhance your smile.
Our composites do not contain any mercury! We have over 25 years of experience restoring teeth without the risk of introducing mercury to our patients. Your health is our top priority, and we will continue to use new technology and industry insights to make your dental experience happy and healthy.
Dr. Boshes office also provides the following services:
DIGITAL X-RAYS – Our Scan-X digital x-ray system lowers your x-ray exposure and lets us view your mouth together on a large, easy to see screen. The x-ray clarity helps us spot decay and develop optimal dental plans.
NIGHTGUARDS – If you are grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep, a custom dental mouth guard can alleviate the headaches and discomfort that you may be feeling. Wearing a night guard will also help maintain the quality of your teeth by avoiding the damage that grinding often causes. We use our Drufomat Scan system to provide you with a comfortable and easy to clean guard.
GUM DISEASE TREATMENT – Healthy gums are critical to your oral health and sometimes require deeper cleaning. We will work with you to determine the best plan to get your gums healthy.
SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT – We offer oral appliance therapy for patients who have sleep apnea. A custom-made sleep apnea appliance is often recommended by physicians and may be covered by your medical insurance plan.
TMJ TREATMENT – If you suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), you may have pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control your jaw movement. We will work with you to develop a TMJ treatment plan.
