Preventative Dentistry


Preventative dentistry is our goal to long term dental care. Our dental office advocates a dental cleaning every 3-6 months.


One hour is allowed for each cleaning appointment. This includes your cleaning followed by an antimicrobial irrigation. The hygienist does a thorough exam and is followed by a second exam by L. David Gassiraro DMD.

Root Planing

Root planing is a “Deep Cleaning” while using novocaine. Root planing removes bacteria and calculus from underneath the gums. The gums heal and regain their natural form.

Digital X-Rays

All x-rays are digital. All images are instantly viewed on the computer screen. The images can be enlarged and enhanced to aid in the diagnostic process. These images can be electronically transferred to other specialists to aid in your treatment.

Sedative Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is simply taking a relaxation medication before treatment. This significantly decreases anxiety that often occurs during dental service.
