According to the ADA, tooth decay and gum disease are the most common dental conditions, yet are nearly preventable with consistent oral care and biannual visits to your dentist. At the Waverly dental office of Dr. Robert Guminey, preventive care is the foundation of his family practice. By following a regime of good oral hygiene, he knows that many dental problems can be prevented. He educates all of his patients – young and old – about proper brushing and flossing techniques, the importance of a well-balanced diet, the need to avoid excessive sugary and sticky foods, and offers fluoride treatments and sealants to his pediatric patients to protect their permanent teeth.

At the Waverly dental office, preventive care consists of cleaning the teeth to minimize plaque and tartar, routine check-ups, and oral cancer screenings. Gum disease can progress to more advanced stages without pain which is why routine check-ups are so important. In its early stage, gum disease (gingivitis) can be reversed with regular brushing, flossing, and a professional cleaning. But if the condition isn’t treated in time, it can progress to a more advanced stage called periodontitis. When this happens, the gum tissue and the surrounding bone are damaged. Even the support for the tooth can be compromised. As it gets worse, tooth loss is possible. Dr. Guminey wants all of his patients to avoid the consequences of both gum disease and dental decay and he emphasizes the importance of preventive care. He wants his family of patients to enjoy good oral health and beautiful smiles.
In addition to his program of preventive care, Dr. Guminey’s Waverly dental office offers a comprehensive menu of restorative, cosmetic and prosthetic dental services to address the dental needs of every member of your family. He also custom fabricates oral appliances to treat jaw clenching, teeth grinding, and TMJ dysfunction. His supportive, friendly staff set the tone for a relaxing, comfortable dental visit. While Waverly is a small town, this dentist has a big heart.
