Dr. Ed Romano and Dr. Matthew Vaccaro – Preventive Dentistry Practice in Morristown, NJ
At Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey in Morristown, Dr. Ed Romano and Dr. Matthew Vaccaro are committed to helping patients maintain optimal oral health. Since it is best to stop dental health problems before they start, we provide a range of preventive dentistry options, including gum disease prevention and mouth rinses. These treatments help prevent cavities, tooth decay, and other problems so that you can avoid extensive dental work and enjoy having a healthy smile for life.
Gum Disease Prevention
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a potentially dangerous disease that threatens many Americans; some statistics indicate that over 70 percent of persons over the age of 40 have the disease. The best solution for gum disease is to prevent the disease altogether. Toward this end, Dr. Ed Romano and Dr. Matthew Vaccaro provide regular dental cleanings and exams. We also advise patients on proper dental hygiene; to prevent gingivitis, patients should follow a balanced diet and brush and floss daily.
Many people consider fresh breath to be an indicator of one’s health and vivacity. Mouth rinses can be an effective tool for maintaining a clean and fresh-feeling mouth, particularly when a person is unable to brush and floss as regularly as he or she should. Dr. Ed Romano and Dr. Matthew Vaccaro provide FDA-monitored cosmetic and therapeutic mouth rinses.
Cosmetic Mouth Rinses
Cosmetic mouth rinses are an excellent way to freshen breath and provide a pleasant taste in the mouth. They also help clean the surface of the teeth and break down oral bacteria.
Therapeutic Mouth Rinses
Therapeutic mouth rinses offer extra benefits in addition to those provided by cosmetic rinses, since they help prevent some oral diseases. There are two categories of therapeutic rinses: antiplaque and fluoride rinses. Antiplaque rinses, which break down plaque on the teeth, have been shown to be highly effective. Meanwhile, fluoride rinses work by killing bacteria that cause cavities. If you suffer from persistent dry mouth, tooth decay, or gum disease, contact Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey to schedule a consultation with Dr. Romano or Dr. Vaccaro and find out whether a mouth rinse is the solution for your problem.
To rinse the mouth, swish the solution throughout your entire mouth and between your teeth. Rinse for one to two minutes to cleanse your mouth and freshen your breath.
Patients should be aware that mouth rinses should not be used to hide evidence of a more severe dental problem or in place of proper oral hygiene. For example, if bad breath persists despite proper oral hygiene, the dentists at our Morristown, NJ office want to make sure that the underlying problem is properly diagnosed. Patients should also be aware that mouth rinses contain about 15 to 25 percent alcohol and should not be ingested. They may not be useful for children, who generally have less tooth decay. Finally, overuse of mouth rinses can stain the teeth.
