You have your father’s eyes and your mother’s dental phobia. Does genetic dental phobia sound a little strange? Millions of US adults and children report experiencing some level of anxiety or fear associated with visiting the dentist. If you’re one of these fearful dental patients, recent research out of West Virginia University (WVU) indicates your genealogy may be to blame. It’s important to keep in mind that the right dentist also has an impact on alleviating both genetic and learned dental phobias and anxieties.

Prevention resides at the heart of dentistry. At Central Dental Associates, Dr. Robert L. Viventi and his associate Norwood dentists do everything possible to preserve natural tooth structure and healthy gums. Restorations such as tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns shore up cracked, decayed enamel, and root canal therapy removes infected inner pulp and seals a tooth for more years of good function.
However, sometimes, teeth must be pulled. Learn the process and the reasons behind this needed treatment at Central Dental Associates.

If you’ve ever owned a brand new car, you probably remember the first scratch or chip in the paint, but what about the 5th or the 10th? Most people stop paying attention to minor flaws after the first few, but overtime, even tiny scrapes and chips add up and the car looks worn and old. The same thing happens to teeth as we age. Tiny chips and stains seem to multiply leaving teeth looking worn and faded. You can trade in your old car for a brand new model, but it’s more difficult to trade in your worn teeth. At Central Dental Associates, we work closely with patients to prevent even minor damage keeping teeth looking and feeling beautiful for life. For those who haven’t been as careful with their smiles through the years, cosmetic bonding may just be your smile’s reset button. At Central Dental Associates, our Norwood, MA dental team helps patients renew their smiles with one visit, no prep cosmetic dental bonding.
