Dentistry is the branch of medicine that is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body.
The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal disease (gum disease or pyorrhea). Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth as a treatment for dental caries (fillings), extraction or surgical removal of teeth which cannot be restored, scaling of teeth to treat periodontal problems and endodontic root canal treatment to treat abscessed teeth.
What sets us apart :
- At Duca Dentistry, a patient’s health and safety are always top priority. It is standard procedure at Duca Dentistry to monitor a patient’s vital signs during all surgeries with an automated pulse oximeter. This meter measures the patient’s vital signs (automatic blood pressure readings continually, blood O2 saturation and pulse rate). In essence, we are replicating the safety of a hospital operating room for any sudden or unforeseen changes in a patient’s key vital signs while doing more involved surgical procedures. This is a key difference among facilities doing such procedures and ensures our compliance with the highest standards of safety.
- Laboratory quality is one of the key factors in the level of care any restorative dental practices provides. The use of technically superior lab facilities and the employment of only the finest materials available in dentistry today in the fabrication and delivery of every case is assured at Duca Dentistry. We feel that when we fabricate your dental work we own it, put our name on it and make it as if for ourselves.
- Our Clifton New Jersey dentist practice can provide a wide range of dental services. We can typically provide every type of dental service without having to refer you to other specialties. This flexibility saves you time and keeps your total dental care within one practice. Our emphasis is on total preventive care for our patients. Total care begins with regular hygiene visits, checkups and continued home oral health routines.
Our primary goal for our patients is to achieve and maintain optimum oral health through advances in techniques, technologies and by maintaining their scheduled dental exams. This is a reiteration of our ethical standards outlined in our mission statement and assures success.
