Dental sealants are applied to the grooves of the teeth to prevent tooth decay and cavities. By placing a special gel on the chewing surfaces of the tooth, sealants will protect the teeth from any particles that can be trapped in the small depressions.
ORAL CANCER EXAM & SCREENING
Oral Cancer Exams are quick, painless and identify any abnormalities and problem areas along with recognizing any signs of early stages of oral cancer. In addition to the exam by Dr. DiPilla, we also use Oral ID™, a screening light that uses fluorescence technology to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage.
Periodontal disease and gingivitis, like other chronic conditions, require regular maintenance to successfully control the disease and prevent tooth loss. These maintenance procedures impede the advancement of periodontal disease and extensively clean the teeth.
