General and Family Dentistry in Warwick
Dr. Vipul Patel is a general dentist who provides comprehensive and family services to patients of all ages. Using prevention-based strategies, we help limit the risk of future dental disease and keep your smile healthy for life.
Dental Exams and Preventative Care
Six-month checkups include a cleaning, periodontal exam, and more. We’ll evaluate changes in your smile since the last appointment, to intervene if concerns are starting to pop up.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Early diagnosis of precancerous and cancerous tissues ensures the best treatment outcome. Risk factors for oral cancer include sun exposure, viruses (like HPV), alcohol use, and more.
Gum disease is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Warwick Valley Dental provides non-surgical soft tissue therapy to halt gum and bone loss before tooth mobility sets in.
Digital imaging makes it possible to see areas of your tooth that aren’t visible during your clinical exam. Most of our Warwick dental patients will need them taken about once per year.
If we pinpoint tooth demineralization early on, it’s possible to reverse it. But once a cavity is starting to form, we’ll want to fill it as soon as possible before it starts to spread deeper into your tooth. Dr. Vipul Patel prefers to use minimally-invasive composite, which bonds to and closely matches your tooth enamel.
When a tooth isn’t restorable with a filling, crown, or root canal, it’s typically best to have it removed. Doing so will help to preserve the health and integrity of the teeth next to it. Before recommending an extraction, we’ll do everything possible to help preserve your natural teeth.
