NORTHBOROUGH — There’s plenty to smile about as COVID-19 restrictions are finally lifted. The team of husband-wife dentists of Dr. Nikhil Levana and Dr. Archana Karkhanis-Lavana owns Family Dental Group. They have offices in Northborough, Paxton and Gardner, and want to help you get your teeth back and your smile back for the summer ahead.

Dr Karkhanis-Lavana said many people have put off dental work over the past eighteen months. She encourages them to make an appointment before cavities and gum disease go too long without treatment.

The practice offers specialized treatments, such as teeth whitening. It is a treatment that has grown in popularity as video meetings are increasingly used.

“Everyone loves whitening,” Dr. Karkhanis-Lavana said.

Initially, this is an office procedure that will take about 90 minutes. The patient will receive a restraint to continue the maintenance treatments at home.

Family Dental Group uses Zoom Whitening, which is the best on the market. The Northborough office is currently offering a $100 discount from the original cost of $499.

What a patient drinks, such as coffee or wine, can make a difference in whitening results.

Dr. Karkhanis-Lavana recommends having a whitening treatment with every cleanse while continuing home treatments to maintain benefits.

Another specialty of the practice is orthodontics. Dr. Nikhil Lavana has been a preferred Invisalign provider for 15 years.

Free consultations are offered to define the patient’s main issues. A clear retainer is worn, which adjusts the position of the teeth. The patient has appointments every two weeks to receive a new retainer for the next fitting. Restraints should be worn except when brushing teeth and eating for best results.

Dr. Karkharnis-Lavana said teens and adults enjoy results without having to wear the typical metal braces. Depending on the case, the treatment is from 6 to 18 months.

Using Invisalign to straighten teeth has become popular because many dental insurance plans cover orthodontic care.

“They’re pretty easy to do and painless,” she said. “We are proud to be able to offer Invisalign as part of our cosmetic dentistry services. We want everyone to have beautiful smiles.
