Following guidelines established by the American Dental Association (ADA), we recommend a checkup every six months to stay ahead of any potential problems.

Professional Teeth Cleanings
By coming to Dr. Casiglia for twice-yearly, professional teeth cleanings, you are taking a stand against damaging conditions, like gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during the late teenage years or early twenties. Immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. Whether your wisdom teeth are impacted or have yet to erupt, we will use special imaging tools to determine if it’s time to have them removed.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors! Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes this treatment is necessary. We are available for emergency tooth extractions!
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Mineral treatment is used to help support healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious condition that may occur even in patients who don't smoke or chew tobacco. At Essex Street Dental Medicine, Dr. Casiglia provides oral cancer screenings as part of your regular checkups.
Suffering from jaw pain, headaches, or facial soreness? Protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding. At Essex Street Dental Medicine, we offer customized mouth guards and relieving injections to treat the symptoms of TMJ.
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child are involved in any type of sports, a custom fitted mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it also reduces the risk of concussion.
Our practice uses digital X-rays to produce computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital X-rays are key to early detection!
