Keeping Your Teeth Strong

Preventing Dental Problems With Your Family's Westfield, NJ General Dentist

Without a strong foundation, your breathtaking smile won’t last. Even patients who practice sufficient home care may experience tooth decay, gum disease, or oral cancer. Through regular preventive visits and patient education, we can keep tabs on your oral health. Dr. Salvato and our hygienists will examine teeth and gums, offer suggestions for brushing and flossing, and support your oral-health goals. We welcome your children to our practice and recommend that you begin bringing them in around age three so that we can examine their mouths and help them feel relaxed about dental visits.

A Perfect Plan

Every six months we will schedule your checkup. During your visit, we will conduct a complete assessment, including a bite evaluation, oral cancer screening, gum disease assessment, and an individual inspection of your teeth. Dr. Salvato will evaluate your oral health, review the findings with you, and make treatment recommendations to resolve any issues. Our general and preventive dental services may include:

  • Professional cleanings
  • Digital X-rays
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Gum disease analysis
  • TMJ/bruxism appliances

Count on Us

Let us partner with you to protect your smile for life. Dr. Salvato and our team will watch for any changes in your mouth, and then help you tweak your routine for optimal results. When necessary, we’ll recommend conservative solutions to dental problems, like root canal therapy to save an internally damaged tooth or a dental crown to repair tooth structure.
