Better Oral Health with Advanced Prevention
Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential for anyone who wishes to enjoy great oral health, but just as important is a solid homecare routine. Traditional brushing and flossing will only take you so far. Dr. Cuomo recommends patients use a Waterpik in combination with a sonic toothbrush. When these two advanced tools are used together, you can have a smile that is truly clean between visits. In fact, using a Waterpik is 70 percent more effective than just using a sonic toothbrush and regular string floss. Waterpik uses a jet of water to provide advanced cleaning to areas that either of these may miss. As a result, more bacteria and plaque is eliminated, leaving your mouth feeling fresh and invigorated.

Healthy mouths have healthy teeth, and those healthy teeth are, in turn, supported by both healthy gum tissue and healthy bone density. When bacteria and plaque buildup along the gumline, patients may experience bone and tissue loss, both of which lead to more advanced periodontal disease and tooth loss.
Unfortunately, periodontal disease won’t go away on its own. That’s why our Boca Raton dental office uses Arestin®, the locally delivered antibiotic treatment reduces or eliminates deep periodontal pockets (spaces that form between the tooth root and gums). Arestin kills bacteria that collects in these pockets and causes adult periodontitis. Combined with scaling and root planing (SRP), Arestin is a powerful ally in the fight against advanced periodontal disease.
When it comes to helping patients maintain a healthy smile from day-to-day, Dr. Cuomo highly recommends the Rotadent® electric toothbrush. Rotadent® gently removes bacteria and plaque from hard-to-reach parts of your smile. With over 90,000 filament sweeps per second, your smile receives a powerful cleaning. The Rotadent® toothbrush is only available for sale through our office. Visit Dr. Cuomo to learn more about this amazing product or to see it in action.
