At A Glamorous Smile, we offer comprehensive general dentistry services to keep your smile healthy, confident and bright. Our team emphasizes the power of preventive care and effective oral hygiene habits to protect your smile for life. We recommend a checkup every six months to stay ahead of any potential problems.
During your regular cleaning appointment, our team will thoroughly assess your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer or tooth decay. If we see anything concerning, we will fully inform you and listen to all of your thoughts about treatment options. A Glamorous Smile is proud to be your partner in protecting your oral health–and in promoting your overall health!
Our New Port Richey, Port Richey and Trinity dentist offers a full spectrum of general dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Dr. Annicchiarico recommends our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.
A Glamorous Smile uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.
Applying fluoride can help remineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them resilient against bacteria.
Desensitizing Treatment for Sensitive Teeth
Are you experiencing tooth sensitivity when you eat or when air touches your tooth? Ask Dr. Annicchiarico about desensitizing treatment options during your next dental appointment.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise. That’s why, at A Glamorous Smile, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Chronic halitosis is a common problem with more than 50 million people suffering in the United States alone. Common halitosis remedies like mouthwashes and breath mints are often sufficient to mask the symptoms, but if you’re concerned about the root cause, schedule an appointment with Dr. Annicchiarico to discuss your treatment options.
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. Ask about pediatric dental sealants!
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child are involved in any type of sports, wearing a custom fitted mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does an athletic mouth guard protect teeth, it also reduces the risk of concussion.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding with TMJ disorder treatment options.
Gentle Tooth Extractions
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including healthy teeth and gum tissue. Fortunately, we can help!
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful.
If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Annicchiarico may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.
Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.
