Pasquale Vascimini, DDS
With "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" firmly established as our motto, work with our dentist to keep your teeth looking great year after year with good oral hygiene habits and our expert dental care.
While root canals are still a serious procedure, they are not the uncomfortable experience they were even a few years ago. Advances in pain management and our same-day crown making ability allow for a quick and relatively painless root canal experience.
In the battle of good oral hygiene, the most often overlooked areas is also one of the most important - the gums! In addition to brushing and flossing, let us make sure your gums are healthy.
• Root canals
• Halitosis treatments
• Fluoride treatments
• Tooth cleaning
• Gingivitis and periodontitis
Brushing and flossing are your best defense against dental work!
Tooth decay is a problem that affects more than 90 percent of adults over the age of 40. If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss. We want to help you keep your teeth healthy and decay-free for a lifetime. To prevent problems such as decay, cavities, and gum disease, our team provides the following preventive options like regular oral exams, hygiene appointments (dental cleanings), etc.
Regular oral exams every four to six months allow dentists to detect tooth decay, gum disease, and other problems in their earliest stages, when treatment is most effective. We use the latest dental technology including an intraoral camera and digital x-rays, enhance our dentists’ ability to detect hidden problems.
Like oral exams, dental cleanings should be scheduled every four to six months, in order to eliminate plaque, tartar, and tooth decay. In addition to keeping the teeth and gums healthy, regular dental cleanings can help keep the mouth healthy after periodontal treatment, endodontic therapy, placement of dental crowns and dental bridges, and other treatments. To schedule a dental cleaning, contact our office.
We offer a variety of cosmetic, general and restorative dental treatments procedures for your whole family. We make sure to make your child’s visits fun and enjoyable, teaching them how to take care of their teeth and gums at an early age. Dr. Vascimini and his entire team understand that children often feel anxiety and fear when visiting the dentist, so we do our best to provide them with the most comfortable treatment possible. With effective treatments, preventive care, and dental education, we can help your child maintain excellent oral health and a beaming smile for years to come!
Fluoride treatments help minimize the risk of cavities and tooth decay. Often performed after teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments can also prevent bacteria from developing along your teeth and gums.
Dental sealants provide a strong layer of protection for your teeth and help prevent cavities and tooth decay from developing in the future. These quick and easy treatments apply a durable sealant material to the surface of the teeth to protect against bacteria that can enter into tiny crevices. A common procedure for children, dental sealants can be very effective at reducing the need for future fillings when combined with good dental hygiene routines.
We understand that dental emergencies can arise at any time. Our experienced dental team can provide immediate assistance if you are experiencing severe pain and discomfort from a chipped or broken tooth, infection, oral injury, or other issues. Please feel free to give us a call at (914)-251-0636 if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
Our dental team provides scaling and root planing treatments to treat gum disease and enhance protection against cavities and tooth decay. These non-surgical treatments remove tartar and plaque located deep within the gums and disinfect the soft tissues to prevent periodontal problems from getting worse. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Vascimini uses a Diode Laser to seal the gums and reduce discomfort after treatment.
At our practice, your safety is our top concern. Years ago, it was common for dental offices to use materials containing mercury in procedures such as tooth fillings. Mercury, even in small amounts, has been shown to have potential health risks. Mercury fillings also left a metal appearance in the treated tooth. Dr. Vascimini uses a mercury-free composite material for dental fillings, which is not only safer for our patients, but also creates a more natural, “tooth-colored” effect. By eliminating mercury-based materials, we are also able to minimize toxins and reduce hazardous waste, ultimately helping our patients and the environment.
