Adolescence is an important time for dental care, it’s when good habits and routines are formed. Dr. Preziosi wants children to have a lifetime of good dental health, which is why he begins seeing children as young as two years old. The sooner you bring your child into the dentist, the more likely they will continue to go. They will be less likely to fear the dentist if they’ve been going since a young age. Don’t set your child up for a lifetime of bad dental health, get your child into the dentist soon after their molars arrive. Make sure you’re also creating good habits at home, flossing daily and brushing twice a day!
TMJ disorder causes your temporomandibular joint to become inflamed, located near the juncture of your skull and lower jaw. This causes symptoms such as stiffness and pain in the jaw, and popping and clicking noises when opening and closing your mouth. Dr. Preziosi can offer you several forms of treatment for this condition, although there is no cure, he can at least help relieve your symptoms. Some of the treatments include custom made splints to align your teeth and jaw properly and also reconstructive procedures to restore your bite. After your diagnosis, Dr. Preziosi will recommend the appropriate treatment.
Many patients are terrified by the sound of the drill and other dental equipment. Luckily, Dr. Preziosi specializes in the use of laser dentistry. He uses lasers to perform surgical procedures more comfortably, quickly and precisely. Laser therapy can minimize swelling and bleeding in the gums after procedures and preserve the healthy section of a tooth during cavity removal. Laser dentistry is less painful and it can reduce the need for anesthesia. If you’re looking for a better alternative to regular dental methods, visit Dr. Preziosi’s office today to experience laser dentistry.
According to studies, 40% of middle aged men snore and 30% of middle aged women snore—this can be caused by sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea can be disruptive to a good night’s sleep. Snoring has been connected to Fatal Obstructive Sleep Apnea which can cause other problems such as hypertension, lack of sleep, diabetes, stroke, headaches, depression and cardiovascular disease. During sleep, your tongue can position itself in a way that blocks your airway, resulting in Obstructive Sleep Apnea which causes snoring. Dr. Preziosi offers a solution to your sleep apnea with reposition guards. If left untreated, sleep apnea can really affect your health. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, contact our office today for an appointment.
It’s normal to experience a little bit of anxiety before a major visit to the dentist, but if you’re experiencing anxiety to the point where you refuse to go to the dentist, your oral health can be suffering. If you’re finding it hard to go to the dentist, or sit in the chair long enough to get any work done, you should consider sedation dentistry. At Dr. Preziosi’s office, we care about your oral health which is why we try to make you as comfortable as possible. We offer both oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to relax you. If you’re going to be using sedation dentistry, make sure to find a ride to and from the dentist office in case the sedative hasn’t worn off. You will be completely conscious during the procedure, but entirely relaxed. Don’t procrastinate your dentist appointments any longer, contact us today to set up your procedure and mention that you would like to use sedation dentistry.
