When looking for a dentist, you need a practice that improves the dental health of the entire family. Your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, provides care for patients of all ages, including children, teens, and adults with family dentistry. In order to ensure a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums, you and your family should undergo regular dental care.
As part of our approach to general dentistry, your Rochester dentist provides preventive measures to help you avoid the onset of serious dental issues. With checkups and cleanings every six months, Dr. Calcagno can examine you and your family for any signs of developing dental issues using the latest in dental technology. Digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and dental lasers detect the earliest hints of decay or gum inflammation. By catching tooth decay and gum disease in the early stages, you can avoid more invasive and costly treatment down the road. A cleaning also improves the beauty of your smile, allowing our hygienists to polish your teeth and removing plaque buildup, which also freshens your breath. For adults, your Rochester dentist provides thorough oral cancer screenings during checkups.
For children, routine dental care starting at an early age can lead to beautiful smiles for life. Around age three, the American Dental Association recommends children attend checkups once every six months. Regular visits help your children become accustomed to the office, reducing dental anxiety. These visits are also an opportunity for Dr. Calcagno to explain the proper methods of brushing and flossing and to discuss the importance of good oral hygiene. Using advanced dental technology, Dr. Calcagno can watch for the earliest signs of tooth decay and developing misalignment. From there, your child can begin receiving immediate treatment before the issue requires more arduous intervention later in life.
