Dr. Brad Turchetta and Dr. Michael Kacewicz from RI Orthodontic Group see patients right here in our office, making scheduling and coordinating treatments a breeze.

  • There’s wisdom in having that tooth removed! Oral surgeons warn that even when young people are not experiencing pain or discomfort in their third molars (wisdom teeth), they may have infection or inflammation. Numerous studies have found that adults who keep their wisdom teeth tend to have continued problems over time compared to those who have them removed.
  • Proper dental care is extremely important for a mother during pregnancy. Because the body undergoes a surge of hormones during this time, many women experience dental problems. Gums can become more sensitive to the bacteria in plaque, causing bleeding and inflammation. This gingivitis (periodontal disease) has been linked to premature births and low birth weight. Brushing, flossing regularly, and receiving proper dental care is crucial to prevent and ease these symptoms.
