PIONEER VALLEY, MA — From March 7 through March 13, 2010, Dr. Vincent Mariano and Dr. Thomas Vergo of Pioneer Valley dentistry practice EMA Dental will be participating in the first annual National Prosthodontics Awareness Week. The event, hosted by the American College of Prosthodontists aims to inform the public about the importance of replacing missing teeth to maintain a healthy mouth and body.
EMA Dental will be participating in Prosthodontics Awareness Week by hosting an open house for the community to learn more about prosthodontics and the benefits of treatment.
“To be a part of the first awareness event for prosthodontics is very exciting for me as a professional,” said Dr. Mariano, a Pioneer Valley dental implantsspecialist. “The prosthodontics field is my passion, and I invite anyone who can benefit from this life-altering treatment to come visit me during this event to learn about treatment that can change lives.”
Prosthodontics includes treatments such as single and multiple tooth dental implants, bridges, and partial and full dentures. In order to be recognized as a prosthodontic specialist by the American Dental Association, dental practitioners need at least two to three years of extra dental school in the field of prevention and treatment of tooth loss.
Tooth loss can occur from tooth decay, gum disease, injuries, cancer, or even wear and tear comments Pioneer Valley dentist Dr. Vergo. Untreated tooth loss typically results in the deformation of the facial muscles and bone shrinkage in the jaw.“Not only do people need to recognize that tooth loss is a sign of serious health complications, but tooth loss will also deteriorate confidence,” said Pioneer Valley prosthodonticst Dr. Mariano. “However, we have excellent care available for virtually all treatment scenarios. That’s what this event is all about. Making people aware of the risks and that help is available.”
Dr. Mariano is the only Board Certified Prosthodontist in the Pioneer Valley region. In addition to prosthodontics, EMA Dental is a family dentistry center providinggeneral dentistry services such as cleanings, fillings, and other services as well ascosmetic dentistry services. From their East Longmeadow and Northampton locations, Pioneer Valley cosmetic dentist Dr. Lisa Emirzian provides smile restorations, teeth whitening, and crown and veneer restorations. EMA Dental is also a Pioneer Valley Invisalign provider.
