Lady Lake dental office
With just a little bit of effort, it’s not all that difficult to manage prevention of tooth decay and gum disease effectively. At First Impressions Dental Care, a strategy that includes two visits to our Lady Lake dental office every year, combined with your attention to daily oral hygiene, is likely to produce excellent results and keep your oral wellness at a high level.
Prevention is all about limiting the effects of dental plaque, the filmy bacterial substance that breaks down tooth enamel and irritates your gums. Plaque forms on your teeth and at the gum line. It is fueled by sugar and starch, so limiting your consumption of the foods and drinks that contain them is a very good start. Brush when you first wake in the morning, and then again before you go to bed, with that late night brushing also being accompanied by a thorough flossing. You’ll get rid of most of your plaque that way, but some will probably stay out of reach, where it will turn into tartar. This is a hardened form of plaque for which brushing and flossing are not efficient in removing. A teeth cleaning at our Lady Lake dental office is, though. Your visit at each six month interval is enough for tartar buildup and plaque to be eradicated, giving you a fresh start on your dental and periodontal health. Gum disease will be stopped in its tracks and the effects of gingivitis, the early stage, reversed. In addition, if any cavities are detected, you will have them filled at our Lady Lake dental office, and therefore preventing them from growing large enough to increase your risk for a toothache or an infection, and needing a more severe treatment, like root canal or a tooth extraction, to address it.

Great dental care depends on the diligent preventative care of the patient coupled with the expert professional attention of a committed dental team. Our Lady Lake dentist, Dr. Cheryl Pisano, DMD and our entire staff at First Impressions Dental Care are committed to protecting, preserving and enhancing the dental health of you and your entire family. Our state-of-the-art offices are equipped with the latest in dental technology to provide the entire family with the full range of general, restorative and cosmetic services.
As a family dental practice our Lady Lake dentist stresses preventative care to stave off tooth decay and other dental problems before they start. As part of the preventative care program our practice offers comprehensive oral exams on a regular basis to detect any problems when they are in the infant stage and more easily treated as well as dental and periodontal cleanings, and sealants plus fluoride treatments for our younger patients. Should a problem arise our practice has many different types of restoration services available including amalgam and composite fillings, porcelain veneers for minor frontal repairs and crowns for more extensive tooth restorations. Our doctor also performs endodontic treatments for restorations that involve the roots of the teeth. Clients that have missing teeth are treated with dental implants, bridges or dentures depending on the number and position of the teeth that need to be replaced. Our doctor may have to extract some teeth to make room for a full denture or to remove an impacted wisdom tooth.
In terms of aiding our patient’s appearance our practice offers many cosmetic dental services, aside from veneers and crowns our Lady Lake dentist performs teeth whitening treatments and dental bonding. Our practice is very experienced in all aspects of pediatric dentistry and our compassionate staff is extremely good in working with children.
