Are you looking for a top-notch dentist who emphasizes preventive dental care? If so, you will want to come to our practice, Abriani Smiles. Our Willoughby dentist will provide you with a comprehensive dental exam so that any emerging dental problems can be diagnosed and treated early.
At Abriani Smiles our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Danute (“Donna”) Abriani. Dr. Abriani has provided patients in our area with exemplary dental care for over 30 years. We strive every day to treat our patients with the dignity and respect they deserve, and our actions are all guided with honesty and integrity. At our office we offer many preventative dental care measures. During our comprehensive oral evaluation, our Willoughby dentist does a complete occlusion exam. A periodontal exam is also performed to evaluate the health of your gums. You will also receive an oral cancer screening and an exam of the temporal mandibular joint.
During a professional cleaning all tartar and plaque will be removed from your teeth and your teeth will be polished. We take diagnostic x-rays using both digital x-rays and panoramic x-rays. We also use Diagnodent for early detection of cavities. At our practice patients are able to get fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel. Fluoride treatments are effective for both children and adults. Children can also be provided with dental sealants on their back molars to help avoid tooth decay. Some patients come to our practice for periodontal maintenance to keep their gums healthy. Our dentist will also check for bruxism, otherwise known as teeth grinding. If desired, our dentist can do a thorough assessment of snoring, and provide you with treatment through the use of custom-made oral appliances. We also can provide patients with custom mouth guards to protect their teeth and mouth during sports activities. At our practice we recommend that children have the first dental visit at one year of age, or within six months of their first baby tooth erupting. Children are able to have age-appropriate tooth cleanings during which time patients can be advised on proper cleaning techniques for their child’s teeth. We also can provide fluoride varnish to help keep the young child’s tooth enamel strong. If you would like to come to our Willoughby dentist for a comprehensive dental exam, or for treatment of a specific dental problem, contact us today for an appointment.
