He went to St. Anne High School and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Windsor. Dr. Alex has always been interested in being a dentist, and is particularly drawn to the aspects of artistry, patient interaction, and health care services. He decided that dentistry was the right career for him as he has known and observed several local dentists and had a great experience with his own family dentist.</p> <p>He attended dental school at the University of Sydney. There, he was awarded the Sydney Achievers’ International Scholarship, a 4-year scholarship based on his undergraduate performance and community involvement. Alex was voted class president every year he attended dental school, and after four years of hard work he was awarded a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.</p> <p>Dr. Alex returned to Essex County to serve the community where he grew up. He has a preventative, dedicated approach to dentistry. He believes that dental health is a lifelong process and goal, and that home care is equally important to dental care. His favourite aspect of dentistry is aesthetics, and he loves seeing a patient become proud and confident in their smile. This inspired him to become a certified Invisalign® provider.</p> <p>Dr. Catauro is the current President of the Essex County Dental Society and is also a member of the Canadian Dental Association, the Ontario Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.</p> <p>Dr. Alex comes from a close-knit Italian and Lebanese background.

The appliance keeps your lower jaw from moving when you’re asleep so you can’t grind your teeth. We design the appliance to be comfortable, so it won’t keep you up all night.</p> <h2>Sports Guards</h2> <p>Sports guards are mouth guards that absorb and disperse impacts to your mouth and teeth. They’re vital for keeping your teeth safe from injury when you play high-impact sports, but they can protect your teeth when you play any sport.</p> <p>Call us today to find out more about our guards or to book an appointment.</p> </div></div> Mon, 09 Mar 2020 19:53:40 +0000 admin 57 at https://www.windsorfamilydentistry.ca Preventative Dentistry in Windsor https://www.windsorfamilydentistry.ca/services/preventative-dentistry-windsor <span>Preventative Dentistry in Windsor</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:32</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">The prevention of cavities and dental disease is the key to good dental health.

The sedative will provide a moderate level of relaxation that many patients describe as sleep-like. Please note that you will be unable to drive home from your appointment, so you’ll need to arrange transportation home.</p> <h2>Nitrous Oxide</h2> <p>Laughing gas sedation is a tried-and-true dental sedative that has been in use for over a century. Nitrous oxide produces a mild, euphoric level of sedation that quickly wears off after your appointment.

When a tooth is damaged, the pulp can become infected, which can cause severe localized pain. By removing the pulp, we can treat the infection, save the tooth, and relieve the pain.</p> <h2>How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>Root canal treatment consists of a group of procedures to remove the pulp from the tooth and protect it from future infection. In simple terms, we drill a small hole in the tooth, extract the pulp with special tools, clean the inside of the tooth, and seal the hole to protect the area. Then we restore the tooth with a dental crown.</p> <h2>Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>Although people will joke “I’d rather have a root canal than do that!” root canal treatment is actually about as painful as having a tooth filled. And since the treatment usually relieves the pain caused by the infection, many patients feel relief after their appointment.</p> <p>If you’re experiencing bad toothaches or sensitivity to hot and cold, call our office to book an examination.</p> <h2 class="videoheader">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/root_canal"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:27:44 +0000 admin 51 at https://www.windsorfamilydentistry.ca Periodontics in Windsor https://www.windsorfamilydentistry.ca/services/periodontics-windsor <span>Periodontics in Windsor</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:24</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">The tissues and bone of your gums and jaws form the foundation of your oral health. They’re vital because they support and protect your teeth. They’re also vulnerable to Infection and disease that can not only cause problems with your oral health but can affect your overall health. Gum disease has been linked to conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.</p> <p>We provide periodontal services to prevent and treat gum infections and disease and keep your gums healthy. Here are just a few services we offer:</p> <h2>Scaling and root planing</h2> <p>Tartar and plaque can irritate the gums surrounding your teeth and cause infections. These treatments remove the tartar and smooth the surfaces of your teeth to prevent inflammation.</p> <h2>Tooth extraction</h2> <p>We remove teeth when they become a danger to your other teeth due to damage or infection. Once the tooth has been removed you have options for a replacement tooth, including a dental implant or a bridge.</p> <h2>Ridge/socket preservation</h2> <p>Tooth loss can result in a breakdown of the bone that surrounded the lost tooth. To prevent this bone loss and preserve the shape of your mouth we fill the socket with dental material.</p> <h2>Ridge augmentation</h2> <p>If you’ve been missing teeth for a long time, the bone and surrounding tissue may have deteriorated. This can change the shape of your jaw. To reverse this deterioration, we can rebuild the area with a tissue or bone graft.</p> <h2>Pocket depth reduction</h2> <p>If your gums pull away from your teeth it can leave a pocket-shaped gap which can trap bacteria and food particles. This can create a dangerous gum infection. We can reduce the depth of the pocket to keep this from happening and protect your gums.</p> <h2>Flap procedures</h2> <p>Flap procedures are surgical procedures that involve making an incision in the gums to access the tissue beneath. They’re used to remove damaged or infected tissue.</p> <h2>Crown lengthening</h2> <p>Crown lengthening is the removal of gum tissue from around the base of a tooth to expose more of the crown. It’s used to change the appearance of the tooth to make it look longer. It’s also used to prepare a tooth for crown placement. </p> <p><a href="/node/54" class="contactlink">Regular preventative dentistry appointments are your best defence against gum disease.
