At Prestipino Dental Group, we focus on preventative dental strategies to help you maintain the highest standard of oral health. A partnership with our team will protect the health of your teeth and promote the longevity of your new smile now and well into the future.
Our team will create a custom and personalized daily oral hygiene regimen to fit your unique needs. This may mean traditional brushing and flossing. However, there are many other oral hygiene strategies and oral health care aids that exist to fit your unique situation. We may recommend a specific toothpaste, rinse or specialized cleaning aid that will serve them best, and enhance their efforts.
Your diet plays a vital role in oral health. Acidic foods, drinks, certain medications, and systemic diseases, such as reflux can accelerate the deterioration of your teeth. Our team will closely evaluate the structure of your teeth, dietary habits, and if needed closely work with your physician to determine the cause of the loss of tooth structure. And of course, routine dental exams, oral cancer screenings, digital x-rays, and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease. By being proactive, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major dental problems. We could even save a life by performing a head and neck exam!

Health & Oral Hygiene
Why visit the dentist regularly? The maintenance of your teeth and gums is the foundation of both lifelong dental health and wellness and our preventive dental care protocol. Our dental care team is committed to providing our patients with hygiene services that are personalized to the patient. We take the time to understand your oral health concerns and unique risk factors for disease.
Routine dental visits are the key to lifelong oral health and wellness, helping to prevent common dental problems from impacting your teeth and gums. When you visit with us routinely, it provides the opportunity for our dental care team to spot developing concerns and offer conservative treatment measures.
The health of your teeth and your gums also plays a vital role in your overall physical health. The gums are an important barrier between bacteria in the mouth and your bloodstream, often preventing inflammatory disease and conditions as a result of infection. If you suffer from chronic gum disease or have other medical conditions that affect gum health we can work with you to manage symptoms and avoid complications.
We also provide tooth extractions. Teeth extractions are the removal of teeth from the mouth. It is typically done to remove wisdom teeth, or to treat tooth decay. Wisdom teeth are usually removed because they do not have enough room in the mouth to grow improperly. Tooth extractions are a safe and effective way to remove teeth that are causing pain or discomfort.
Despite diligent efforts to maintain your dental health, emergencies can happen. In the event of a dental emergency, call Prestipino Dental Group for immediate care at 301-276-0219. Our restorative and cosmetic treatments help patients following a dental emergency and can be used to replace broken or lost appliances. Receiving dental care as soon as you notice a problem prevents further complications down the road.
