As an experienced family dentist, Dr. Gino is here to treat patients of all ages.
Along with proper at-home oral care, regular six-month teeth cleanings and oral exams from Dr. Gino are critical for keeping your mouth healthy. At your appointment, we’ll clean and polish your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, and Dr. Gino will examine your mouth, take x-rays, and look for signs of common oral health issues like gum disease and tooth decay.
Fluoride treatments prevent cavities by remineralizing teeth that are weak due to minor decay. Dr. Gino will apply a fluoride-rich gel onto your teeth, and your enamel will absorb the fluoride and other minerals. After a few minutes, the solution will be rinsed away, leaving your teeth stronger and healthier. This treatment is typically administered after a cleaning, and it is a great option for those who are prone to cavities.
Dental sealants consist of a strong, transparent liquid resin that is painted onto your rear teeth. This resin is hardened with a UV light, creating a strong barrier that prevents acid, bacteria, and food particles from contacting your tooth. This treatment can help prevent cavities for up to 10 years.
Proper periodontal care is critical for reversing or stopping the progress of gum disease. At our office, we offer deep cleaning (scaling & root planing) and antibiotic treatments, as well as gum flap surgery. If you think you may have periodontal disease, contact us now to learn more and get the care you need.
Regular oral cancer screenings from Dr. Gino are the best way to catch any serious issues as early as possible. During preventive appointments, Dr. Gino will use an intraoral camera to look for any potential signs of oral cancer. By checking for oral cancer during each six-month checkup, we will give you peace of mind that your mouth is healthy.
Routine visits and preventive care keep your teeth and gums healthy and reduce your risk of issues like cavities and gum disease. By coming in every six months for a cleaning and checkup, your smile will stay bright, beautiful, and healthy. Routine visits also save time and money by giving our team the opportunity to catch any potential oral health issues early while they are still able to be easily treated.
