Gum disease (periodontal disease) is very common. Studies show that close to 80% of U.S. adults have some form of the disease. Gum disease is a silent, persistent bacterial infection around the gums and the bone that support your teeth. When gum disease is present,...
“Why get more than one dental cleaning per year? I have good oral hygiene and brush my teeth after every meal. Shouldn’t I be fine?” There’s more to your routine dental checkup than a routine cleaning. Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly do help to keep your...

Additional risk factors for oral cancers include high alcohol consumption, the use of smokeless (chewing/spit) tobacco, as well as, prolonged exposure to the sun (for lip cancers).
Tobacco use, in any form, and even more so combination with heavy alcohol consumption, remains the primary risk factor for oral cancer. However, if currents trends continue, HPV may, in the next decade, become the dominant cause.
The rates of oral cancer occurance and death amoung African Americans are twice as high as they are amoung Caucasians. This is related to lifestyle choices and socio-economic factors, not biology.
Twenty years ago, the male to female ratio of oral cancer occurance was ten men to one woman. The ratio now is two men to one woman. Tobacco marketing (“You’ve come a long way baby”) and the virus are the primary reasons behind this shift to a greater number of women...
Historically, oral cancer has been most likely to occur after the age of 50. However, the fastest growing segment of the oral cancer population are people in the 25-50 year old age range. Evidence from leading cancer centers shows that most of this younger group are...
In the U.S., someone dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. The death rate has remained relatively constant for almost five decades. About 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with oral cancer in the US every day of the year.
Each year, oral cancer kills more people in the U.S. than other more widely known forms of cancer, including skin cancer (malignant melanoma), lymphatic cancer (lymphoma), thyroid, and cervical cancer.
Fact 1: Approximately 40,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year in the US. If you include cancer of the throat, which have the same risk factors, another 12,000 individuals are added to that number. Because a large number of these individuals will be...
A smile is our greeting card, the warm “hello”. When our teeth make us uncomfortable, or even unhappy, there is little to smile about. That was how I felt about my teeth, and while it didn’t stop me from smiling, I would do so without showing my teeth.
So often people stop me, praise my beautiful smile and comment how fortunate I am to have such perfect teeth. With a big grin, I am proud to credit our move here and finding the best dentist, Dr. Louis Giordano.
Walking down the street or through the store, I am quick to say “hello” with my smile.
The six week PerioGel treatment tray had a resounding positive effect on my gums. Before treatment my gums were painful and swollen. Two weeks into treatment they were less painful and the gum bleeding had diminished. After the six weeks they are pink, healthy, and pain-free.
Heather explained each step in a way that gave me confidence in preparing and carrying out the PerioGel treatment at home. The treatment does take time and effort, but I feel it has been a very worthwhile investment in the health and future of my gums and teeth.

I approached your business because I had heard many positive stories from people who had been previously treated by you. I’m happy to say I listened to them and I took action.
I came to you because I was experiencing a lot of pain associated with my clenching and grinding of my jaw/teeth. You took the time to really listen to my concerns. You spent a good amount of time examining my bite. Based on your findings, you crafted an appliance for me that allows my jaw to find “rest”. You also adjusted my bite.
I’m happy with the result and want to thank you for your expertise, as well as, your wonderful bedside manner.

I had no idea where to turn. First, I thought it was an ear issue or a tooth problem, but neither was the cause. The pain was unbearable to say the least. Ready to try anything, my dentist suggested I try Dr. Giordano and Thank God! After my initial appointment, a device to wear, and an amazing staff, I was on my way to relief after months of agony and happily pain-free today! Thank you Dr. Giordano and your great team.

I can’t thank Dr. Giordano enough! I can actually chew on the right side of my mouth without pain for the first time in years! No other dentist had been able to figure out why I still had pain after having root canals. I was told that Dr. Giordano was such a great dentist so I thought I would give him a try. I am so glad that I did! His equipment is state of the art and his dentistry is perfection! He took the time needed to figure out my bite issue.
I also want to say that his office staff are the most pleasant, knowledgeable and professional people that I have experienced. Insurance claims are always submitted promptly too.
I have been recommending Dr. Giordano to everyone I know! I can’t thank him enough for helping me!
I was referred to Dr. Giordano by my family physician for jaw, neck and head pain. The office was warm and friendly, the receptionist was more than helpful working with my insurance to get the best coverage for me. After my initial testing and finding out I had TMJ, I was seen four more times and my pain and symptoms are 98-100% better! I would highly recommend Dr. Louis Giordano and his staff.
