What is General Dentistry?

General Dentistry at Astoria Dental Group focuses on preventive and restorative oral care. Our experienced dentists provide routine check-ups, cleanings, and treatments for common dental issues. From cavity fillings to gum disease management, our team ensures your oral health is in top shape.

We recommend regular dental check-ups every six months to maintain optimal oral health. These routine visits allow us to detect early signs of dental problems and address them before they worsen, saving you from potential pain and costly treatments in the future.

During your dental exam, our skilled dentists will thoroughly inspect your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. We may take X-rays to assess any hidden issues. Based on our findings, we’ll discuss personalized treatment plans to address your specific needs.

At Astoria Dental Group, we prioritize your comfort. Our compassionate team understands dental anxiety and offers various relaxation techniques and sedation options to ensure you have a stress-free and pleasant dental experience.

Practicing good oral hygiene is crucial. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and maintain a balanced diet. Regular dental cleanings also play a vital role in preventing cavities and gum disease.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week. Their flexibility in scheduling and acceptance of various insurances make it hassle-free. I’ve been a loyal client for years, personally attended to by Dr. Carmen. She’s not only super nice but also patiently listens, possesses extensive knowledge, and most importantly, operates with utmost integrity – you can trust them without a doubt.
