New York Smile Institute is one of NYC’s best-reviewed dental offices thanks to the excellent care provided by our trusted team of dentists. We are committed to checking and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, while also keeping you comfortable and happy throughout your appointments. Some of the general dentistry services we offer to keep your smile both healthy and attractive include:
At your biannual checkup, one of our dentists will inspect your mouth for irregularities like gum disease, cavities and even oral cancer. Unless there is prior pain or bleeding, the symptoms for these problems are often minor (especially in their early stages), so it is a good idea to have a trained professional detect any dental issues before they become larger problems. If your examination does turn up any issues, our dentists have the knowledge and skills to perform the procedures.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
During the same appointment as your checkup, our hygienists will carefully remove any plaque and tartar present on your teeth. Our custom dental tools allow us to address parts of your mouth that a toothbrush and floss have difficulty reaching. Although brushing and flossing at home is undoubtedly the best way you can maintain your oral health, having a regular, deep cleaning at New York Smile Institute will ensure that your teeth stay their cleanest.
During the cleaning, the hygienist will apply fluoride to your teeth. The enamel — the protective outer layer on teeth that safeguards teeth from cracking — is strengthened by this fluoride application. Fluoride also prevents and helps to reverse tooth decay. Fluoride is especially important for children to promote the growth of healthy teeth.
Some teeth, particularly the molars, have so many crevices that it can be difficult to remove all the plaque and bits of food even with frequent toothbrushing. Sealants cover up some of the nooks and crannies to decrease the chances of developing decay and cavities. While sealants do not replace the need for brushing, they make it easier to get the job done effectively.
To make accurate assessments of your oral health, our dentists have state-of-the-art X-ray equipment in our office. This technology allows us to safely detect tooth decay, health issues hidden beneath the gumline, abscesses, bone loss and cancer. X-rays are especially good at catching dental problems in their early stages before any symptoms manifest. The earlier treatment begins, the easier and more cost-effective it usually is to resolve the issue.
