Bi-Annual Dental Visits

The Importance of Routine Cleanings

Routine hygiene appointments every six months allow Dr. Lascari and our dental team to track your oral health over time and catch any signs of cavities or gum disease early. This will save you both time and money in the long run.

In addition, your smile will always look its best. We clean away plaque and tartar, and buff and polish your teeth to remove minor surface stains and keep your smile bright and beautiful. You can also get customized advice for at-home dental care from Dr. Lascari, and ensure that you’re brushing, flossing and caring for your teeth properly.

Strengthen Your Teeth

Fluoride Treatments

If you are cavity-prone and you want to strengthen your teeth, fluoride treatments may be a good option for you. This painless, non-invasive treatment consists of a fluoride-rich paste or gel, which Dr. Lascari will apply directly to your teeth. It’s left in place for a few minutes, then rinsed away.

Fluoride has the unique ability to remineralize enamel by attracting minerals and chemicals like calcium and phosphates. The fluoride-rich paste or gel will help strengthen your teeth, and can even reverse the very first stage of tooth decay.

Prevent Cavities From Forming

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a good option for preventing decay if you are cavity-prone. They are usually applied to the rear teeth, as these teeth are more likely to develop cavities. The sealant itself is a clear, transparent dental resin, which is applied to each tooth individually.

Then, this sealant will be hardened using a UV light to create a barrier that stops bacteria, acid and food debris from contacting your enamel directly. By doing so, the sealant prevents cavity formation. When applied properly, sealants will last up to 10 years.

Get Peace of Mind

Oral Cancer Screenings

Unless it is detected early by a dentist, oral cancer is hard to recognize until it spreads throughout your body. To provide you with peace of mind, Dr. Lascari performs an oral cancer screening with every checkup at our office. She will look for lesions, discolored tissue and any other potential areas of concern. In the rare case that we notice a potential issue, you can get further treatment and diagnosis right away.
