2. True. Instilling good dental habits at an early age is crucial for maintaining a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Calcagno offers innovative care for young patients, including tooth decay prevention with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Using intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, Dr. Calcagno can also identify the earliest signs of developing dental disorders. This allows your child to receive treatment before the problem requires more costly and invasive intervention.

3. True. With CEREC technology, Dr. Calcagno can fabricate and place a custom-made crown in just one visit. Made from dental ceramic, the crowns mimic the look and function of natural teeth.

4. True. Implants consist of a biocompatible titanium post inserted directly into the jawbone. The bone tissue bonds with the implant, securing the post for decades. Dental implants are then topped with restorations, usually in the form of a crown or even a full or partial set of fixed dentures.
