What we can prevent, we don’t have to treat. Perhaps the most important mission of any good dental practice is to educate patients about dental disease.
The words comprehensive, meticulous and "eagle eye" come to mind when Dr. Boccuzzi is speaking about Sandy Bryant, Registered Dental Hygienist. Dr. Boccuzzi has had Sandy's name added to the outside wall of
the dental office (just under hers)....why? because Sandy is that good and that gentle.
Dr. Boccuzzi and Sandy, RDH, have a combined experience of over 30 years in dentistry. All hygiene procedures are customized to you based on the individual findings in your mouth.
At your initial appointment with Sandy, she performs a comprehensive recording of the topography of your bone and gums. Inflammation of the soft tissues of the mouth have been scientifically proven to directly correlate with
heart disease/cardiovascular disease, diabetes, premature or low birth weight babies, Alzheimer's disease and possibly other systemic conditions. Therefore, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal disease but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.
Sandy then works with the Piezo Ultrasonic Handpiece and hand instruments to disturb the biofilm from teeth and sulcus (gum space). She uses the Kavo Diagnodent to check for early cavity formation. Every visit your teeth will be professionally polished, flossed and remineralizing paste applied so your teeth will feel refreshed and clean.
Dr. Boccuzzi and Sandy, RDH, believe that you deserve the best that dentistry has to offer in every procedure in our office.
