What do we offer our patients?

Dr. Ricardo and his staff at Pittsford Smiles Dental offer patients a variety of treatments. These range from general and cosmetic dental services to more specialized areas of sleep apnea and the mind-body connection. These specialist areas are what separates us from the rest, along with our compassion, expertise and commitment. Furthermore, unlike normal dentists, we place a strong emphasis on educating our patients and also ourselves. We aim to treat our patients with the most reliable technology and resources at hand to provide them with results that last beyond the clinic door.

For patients who live in Victor looking for a dentist, we can help by arranging transportation and accommodation to provide you an opportunity to experience our services.

General Dentistry Options

Our practice is based on a proactive total health model, ensuring you will receive comprehensive, thorough and compassionate treatment. A key problem that is often at the root of many patients’ discomfort is the presence of cavities. At Pittsford Smiles Dental, we offer a new way to help prevent cavities before they start by using CariFree technology. It neutralizes decay-causing acids and treats bacterial infections. Not only does this help to ease discomfort, it also promotes long-term dental health as it attacks the cause of the problem as opposed to simply filling it. Dr. Ricardo will perform a painless one-minute screening to determine your risk for cavities.

Our other treatment options include:

  • Bridges
  • Composites
  • Crown Lengthening
  • Crowns
  • Digital X- Rays
  • Gum Disease Treatment
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • Preventative Care
  • Root Canal
  • Education into the Canary System

Cosmetic Dentistry

The field of cosmetic dentistry requires additional training that goes beyond what is taught at dental school. Our qualified team prides themselves on delivering patients in Victor the opportunities to modify and enhance their smile. Unlike other cosmetic dentists, we also look to the underlying issues of such problems. This allows us to provide you with the treatment that best suits your individual case and we will ensure the results last by creating and implementing a maintenance plan that lasts.

We aim to make your oral health smile at its most optimal. Dr. Guarneri is more than happy to talk to his patients about their underlying insecurities and can suggest viable options to help get your smile bright.

Cosmetic service includes:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Gum recontouring
  • Crown lengthening

Mouth-body connection

At Pittsford Smiles Dental, we offer education on the important, and often overlooked, link between your mouth and your entire body. Did you know gum disease is one of the big indicators of your health and can affect the heart, brain and blood? Oral bacteria from bleeding gums can enter the bloodstream and attach to fat plaques to cause clotting in the heart and brain. Additionally, acid reflux may lead to enamel erosion which could leave you susceptible to decay.

Our unique approach to dental treatment can also detect poor nutrition and hygiene, improper jaw alignment and signs of developing oral and overall health problems. The importance of booking an appointment with our clinic is twofold, as it concerns both your dental and overall health. Contact Dr. Ricardo today to see how you can help maintain your health.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is characterized as a sleep-breathing disorder that blocks or partially obstructs a person’s throat when they sleep. This inevitably causes the person to be abruptly awoken during the night, which causes little to no sleep at all. Health issues arising from this include high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and memory problems from tiredness. Some signs and symptoms include fatigue during the day, having trouble focusing and mood swings.

Sleep Apnea in Children

Signs of sleep apnea in children are often interpreted differently than in adults. This is because symptoms can imitate those from hypersensitivity disorders:

  • Lack of focus
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty sitting still
  • Poor academic performance
  • A decline in athletic performance

In most cases, sleep apnea is easy to treat as it is often a result of enlarged tonsils or adenoids that can be fixed with a minor procedure.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

As a sleep apnea dentist, Dr. Ricardo is one the most qualified medical health professional to diagnose and treat sleep-breathing disorders. As a proud member of the Kois Center, he is committed to furthering his education through practice and mentoring.

Pittsford Smiles Dental offers a unique sleep apnea treatment that is far less invasive than traditional methods. Patients in Victor and surrounding areas are offered oral appliance therapy through the use of a mouth guard that is designed to protrude the lower jaw forward for a better pathway of oxygen to go in and out. Furthermore, the method is tailored to a patient’s individual case, so the results are more promising and effective.
