  • Periodontal Therapy
    Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a chronic inflammatory condition with harmful effects on your body if not treated properly.

    Your oral health is the gateway to your overall health. This means gum disease is linked to other health concerns beyond your smile, including:

    • Heart disease
    • Stroke
    • Diabetes
    • Kidney disease
    • Alzheimer’s

    It is critical to catch the early signs of gum disease before it becomes a real concern. Dr. Santucci does this by recommending regular hygiene appointments. However, if gum disease has developed then he is able to provide deep cleanings to remove bacteria from below the gum line and restore your smile back to complete health.

    There’s no better way to successful periodontal health than prevention and early detection. Our dentist in Orinda, CALearn more about Dr. Santucci, will provide you with expert advice and regularly assess your gum health.

  • Oral Cancer Screenings
    We care for more than just your smile; we care for your overall well-being. One way we do this through regular oral cancer screenings.

    Our oral cancer screening is a modern visual and physical exam of your mouth to evaluate or diagnose any early signs of cancer.

    During this exam, Dr. Santucci will conduct a thorough inspection of your neck, lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, and hard palate to identify any potential risks or symptoms.

    Dr. Santucci will discuss any findings with you and explain the next steps should he find any cause for concern. Our team will be by your side at every step and will work with your primary care physician if further action is needed.

    Remember, early detection is your first line of defense; it could save your life!

At Jess Santucci DDSGet more information on our homepage, the love for our guests is the motivation behind everything we do. With your best interests at heart, we are happy to offer the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System. Let us help you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your entire appointment.

How Does Anutra Work?

Most local anesthetics are acidic, causing a burning or stinging sensation when they make contact with your gums. However, the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System uses a natural buffering system to bring the pH level of the anesthesia closer to your body’s natural pH level, making the process more comfortable for our guests.

This solution is administered with Anutra’s specially designed syringe in a single dose, eliminating multiple needle pokes. Due to its high-quality design, Antura’s syringe allows Dr. Santucci to have total control over the needle’s depth and position.

Antura provides a more predictable, efficient, and painless experience for our patients.
