5 Things This Top Dentist Wants You To Know

When it comes to maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile, staying informed about the latest advancements and best practices in dental care is crucial.

Dr. Daniel D. Truono, of Dental Associates, P.A. in Wilmington, has been practicing dentistry in Delaware for 34 years. Dr. Truono stresses the importance of making the most informed decisions regarding your oral health, sharing five essential insights that he wants everyone to know.

Preventative Care: The Foundation of Dental Health

Preventative care is essential for maintaining dental health. Regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and good oral hygiene practices can prevent many dental problems before they become serious. Dr. Truono advises visiting the dentist at least twice yearly for comprehensive exams and cleanings. During these visits, dentists can identify early signs of issues such as cavities or gum disease and provide timely interventions that can prevent more extensive treatments in the future.

Cosmetic Dentistry: More Than Just Aesthetics

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t solely about enhancing the appearance of your teeth; it also plays a significant role in improving your overall dental health.

“Procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding do more than just give you a radiant smile,” said Dr. Truono. “These procedures can also address underlying issues such as misaligned or missing teeth, gaps, or an uncomfortable bite. So cosmetic dentistry can be both a confidence booster and a preventative measure.”

Embracing New Technology for Better Outcomes

“Technology has really changed how I practice dentistry,” said Dr. Truono. “Digital X-rays and 3D imaging allow for more precise and efficient dental treatments and more effective planning.”

Dr. Truono embraces these technological advancements, personally developing the designs for implants, crowns, aligners, and night guards using scanners, 3-D printers, and other equipment at the dental practice.

“I am really involved in the design process,” said Dr. Truono. “By doing the designs myself, I can ensure the accuracy and quality of the final product. Technology also allows me to show my patients a visual of how their teeth would look after treatment. It is really rewarding to create something that comes together so seamlessly and effectively for my patients.”

The Value of Second Opinions

When facing a significant dental procedure, seeking a second opinion is important. Dr. Truono encourages patients to explore their options and consult with different dentists before committing to any major dental work. Second opinions can confirm the necessity of a treatment or present alternative options. Knowledge will empower you to make the most informed decisions about your dental health.

Same-Day Crowns and Cosmetic Smile Makeovers Meet Advanced Care

Innovative treatments such as same-day crowns and veneers have made dental care more convenient and effective. “We utilize technology to design, create, and place a crown or veneer in a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns,” said Dr. Truono. “Our practice also utilizes dental lasers to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile which in turn improves the health and appearance of your gums.”
