Routine Examinations and Cleanings
Seeing the dentist twice a year provides a solid foundation for good oral health. At Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, we like to see patients every six months for routine checkups and cleanings. This enables Dr. Matthew Vaccaro to spot oral health disease, including decay or infection, and to recommend treatment for any issues that might be developing. The earlier he discovers a problem, the easier it is to treat—and the less money you’ll likely have to spend on dental procedures.
We generally recommend x-rays regularly—once a year for most patients—so we can see any dental issues that are not yet visible to the naked eye. Digital x-rays are a safe diagnostic tool, and they emit less radiation than their film x-ray counterparts.
We will also assess your gum health while you are here. Many times, people have gum disease, and they don’t know it because there are no symptoms. The truth is that you cannot have healthy teeth if you do not have healthy gums, so it is crucial for us to identify and treat gum disease if it is present.
Even the most diligent tooth brushers and flossers need biannual dental cleans. Plaque builds up on the teeth that cannot be removed with a toothbrush and dental floss, so our hygienists use special tools to do so.
Sometimes despite our best efforts, dental issues come up, and when they do, we can provide the restorative care that is needed. We offer tooth-colored dentistry for tooth repair in the form of fillings and crowns, as well as dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants to replace missing teeth. We also offer CEREC technology for same-day dental crowns.
Some patients enjoy good oral health, but they are not satisfied with the way their smile looks. We offer veneers to fix teeth that are misaligned, crooked teeth, gapped, or stained. If you wish to have a brighter and whiter smile, professional teeth whitening can be an effective way to remove stains from lifestyle habits or the effects of aging.
We also offer Invisalign clear braces for older teens and adults.
