You can rely on Astoria Dental Group for general dentistry procedures such as tooth-colored fillings, root canal therapy, wisdom tooth extraction, and comprehensive dental exams. Convenient to Manhattan and New York City, our practice offers all the general dentistry services you need to maintain or restore the health and beauty of your smile.
Modern dental materials allow us to use tooth-colored fillings at our Manhattan area practice to fill cavities and restore dental health. Composed of durable composite resins and plastics, these fillings wear better than old metal fillings, contain no mercury, and provide a completely natural look!
Tooth-colored fillings are easy to apply. In just one appointment, our dentists can give you durable, beautiful restorations that will last for many years.
Tooth-colored fillings are ideal for patients who have a metal sensitivity, are concerned about the mercury content of amalgam fillings, or who simply want to preserve their beautiful smile. Today’s technology allows for a tenacious, long-lasting bond between the restoration and the tooth. We can even replace old metal fillings — which are always at risk for cracking and discoloring — with tooth-colored restorations. You’ll love your new smile and wonder how you ever put up with unsightly metal fillings!
An increasingly common general dentistry solution, tooth-colored fillings are a great way for Manhattan area residents to preserve the beauty of their smile while boosting the health and strength of their teeth. If you would like more information about tooth-colored fillings, or are concerned with old metal amalgam fillings that you would like replaced, contact the Astoria Dental Group today.
Wisdom teeth typically emerge when a person is between the ages of 17 and 24. As wisdom teeth grow, they often become impacted, which means there is not enough space for them at the back of the mouth. When wisdom teeth are impacted, they can cause a variety of painful symptoms, including pain, swelling, infection, damage to adjacent teeth, and jaw stiffness.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a common and often medically necessary procedure. At our New York City practice, we work to make the procedure as comfortable and relaxing as possible, so there are no surprises and your life is disrupted as little as possible.
Wisdom tooth extraction is either done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia combined with a sedative. The surgery treats the pain and gum infection that can come with the growth of the wisdom teeth. It also prevents the results of orthodontic treatment from being compromised.
Even if your or your child’s wisdom teeth have not yet caused problems, it’s likely that they will negatively affect dental health sometime in the future if no intervention is taken. Dentists recommend that impacted wisdom teeth be removed when patients are between ages 14 and 22 — regardless of whether the wisdom teeth are causing problems. The complications of wisdom tooth extraction increase with age, so we recommend that teenagers visit our practice for a dental exam during which we can check the wisdom teeth and decide on the appropriate course of treatment.
Wisdom tooth extraction at our New York City practice is a safe procedure that will prevent many future problems and keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Please contact us today for a complimentary consultation with one of our skilled dentists.
Root canal therapy becomes necessary when a tooth’s root chamber becomes infected by decay. Extensive tooth decay or an injury can cause serious damage and infection to the nerves and vessels in the dental pulp, making root canal therapy necessary to save the tooth.
During the root canal procedure, one of our dentists will clean out the infected pulp chamber inside your tooth and repair the damage to relieve pain and clear the infection. Following root canal therapy, our dentist restores the form and function of treated teeth with all-porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are durable, long-lasting, and provide a superior aesthetic result.
Severe tooth decay, as well as injury that has causes infection in the bone, can create the need for root canal therapy. If you have experienced the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for root canal therapy:
At our Long Island area practice, we offer sedation dentistry as a way to keep your dental visit painless and stress-free. Our office also offers soothing amenities such as classic-comedy videos and iPods to help you feel relaxed and at home.
If you need root canal therapy, don’t wait. Contact our Long Island area practice today to schedule an appointment.
Dental exams are the cornerstone of good dental health. Maintaining your oral health is the best way to avoid having to endure pain, tooth loss, and costly restorative procedures in the future.
At Astoria Dental Group, a typical dental visit includes:
During such comprehensive exams, our dentists check for cancer, gum disease, tooth decay, tooth-grinding problems, and much more.
