Oral Health for Overall Health
Good oral hygiene begins at home with daily flossing and proper brushing techniques. Establishing these habits not only protects the health of your smile, but can also decrease your risk of developing conditions that have been linked to gum disease, like stroke and heart disease.
We believe in incorporating the latest technology so our patients can enjoy convenient and comfortable treatment. With CEREC®, patients can receive customized dental crowns in just one visit. iTero™ creates high-resolution 3-D images, negating the need for messy traditional impressions.
We work closely with our patients to provide them with the tools that they need for good oral hygiene. Daily flossing and proper brushing techniques are the cornerstone to maintaining a healthy smile, in addition to twice-yearly appointments to undergo teeth cleaning and an assessment of overall oral health.
Root Canal Therapy
If infection has spread to the inner portion of a tooth, we may recommend you undergo root canal therapy. Modern root canals can be performed nearly painlessly, and typically cause no more discomfort than a dental filing. Our skilled dentists can perform most root canals on-site.
Gum disease has been linked to diabetes, blood clots, and heart disease. For these reasons, it is critical to undergo regular professional cleanings. Our periodontal specialist can also develop a treatment plan to help control your symptoms and prevent the spread of disease.
We try to avoid tooth extraction, but in some cases, it is the best solution for achieving and maintaining oral health. Our highly trained doctors use gentle techniques and advanced technology to minimize discomfort, reduce your recovery time, and minimize the risk of complications.
Bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, can have a number of unpleasant side-effects, including jaw and neck pain, headache, and increased tooth sensitivity. Mouth guards gently realign the jaw and prevent clenching while you sleep. We can also create customized mouth guards for athletes.
Sedation Dentistry with Nitrous Oxide "Laughing Gas"
Do you experience anxiety in the exam chair, or dread the dentist's office so much you avoid going altogether? At Greater Long Island Dental, we want you to receive the high quality care you need and deserve. Our sedation option can help you relax comfortably throughout treatment.
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jaws of your face, especially in or around the joint that connects the jaw to the skull. At Greater Long Island Dental, we offer BOTOX® injections and night guards to offer relief from the painful symptoms of TMD.
