TEETH CLEANINGS & PREVENTIONS
Why do we encourage our patients to visit Dr. Aiello every 6 months for a check-up? To limit the amount of treatments like fillings or extractions that they need over time. With the right prevention, your smile can stay stronger and healthier for decades to come.
We offer several preventive care services, including:
Teeth Cleanings and Exams
Every checkup consists of a thorough exam and preventive cleaning to keep your teeth free of cavities and gum disease. We also utilize Diagnodent digital cavity detection to pinpoint areas of concern before they are large enough to be seen with the naked eye.
Low radiation digital x-rays take less time to capture and reduce your appointment length by several minutes. The HD images are visible on an in-room monitor for you to co-diagnose your treatment needs alongside of Dr. Aiello.
Gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. It is also linked with conditions like heart disease, stroke and diabetes. When you hear us calling out numbers and measurements, we are assessing the health of your supporting bone and gum tissues.
Mouth Guards and Splints
Do you constantly clench or grind your teeth together? Bruxism can cause worn, flat, chipped teeth and broken restorations. Our thermoform and acrylic dental guards protect and preserve your smile. If you’re an athlete, one of our sports mouth guards can protect you from sports related dental emergencies, including concussions.
TMJ Disorder Symptom Management
Depending on the cause of your TMJ disorder and the side effects that you suffer from – Dr. Aiello may be able to help. One of the most common problems that we address are TMJ induced migraine headaches.

Sleep Apnea Support
Have you been diagnosed with a sleeping disorder? We offer sleep apnea screening and can coordinate care with your sleep physician. Our oral sleep apnea appliances are ideal for improving airflow naturally, so that some people do not have to use CPAP equipment.
