I've had services from both Dr. Nary and Dr. Padron, and I have to say that both are extremely nice, attentive and listen. Being very nervous about various procedures, they were able to answer my questions and proceed with the work with no pain and the ability to relax and calm me. Very professional and extremely nice staff, who even remembered my name! The prices (even if you didn't have insurance) were very affordable as well.

Everyone at the office is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Portalupi seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. I asked him many questions about Invisalign and he was always very honest and straight forward. I would highly recommend his office for all your orthodontic needs!

I found Dr. Portalupi through the phone book. I called to talk to them and I felt very good about it. It was a good feeling to speak with staff who know what they are doing, and made me feel comfortable. I have had a pleasant experience there so far.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
