Preventive Dental Care – Cleanings and Checkups
The best way to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile is to take great care of your teeth. At All American Smile Dental Studios, we provide regular checkups and cleanings to meet your preventive care needs. Keeping your teeth clean prevents plaque buildup that can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Regular checkups and cleanings help us prevent and identify any potential problems in their earliest stages.
Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)
Our offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn provide nearly painless root canal therapy to our patients. This treatment addresses problems with the root canal – the inner part of the tooth. The root canal contains tissue, known as the “pulp,” that extends from the crown of the tooth down through the root to the tip of the tooth. When this tissue becomes damaged or diseased, this can cause pain, swelling, and even damage to the jawbone. When the pulp becomes infected, the tooth can be saved with root canal therapy. This treatment involves replacing the damaged pulp with an artificial material, which prolongs the use of the tooth and, often, eliminates the need for extraction.
The Root Canal Therapy Procedure
Root canal treatment is performed in a manner that is both painless as well as relaxing. Care is given to assure maximum comfort to the patient. To begin the treatment, the dentist administers an anesthetic. When the mouth is fully numb, the dentist removes the damaged pulp and cleans the root canal. Next, the canal is filled with a strong dental material. Finally, the tooth is covered with a temporary crown, which the patient will wear until the permanent version is ready.
If you have a toothache, broken or missing teeth, or other problems, it is best to get these problems taken care of immediately. If ignored, the problem can worsen, become very painful, and even more expensive to fix. We offer a full range of restorative dentistry treatments to restore unhealthy teeth. From dental fillings to bridges, we provide excellent care in a calm and relaxing environment.
Dentistry for Children
Dr. Benjamin and his associates work with patients of all ages, including children and teenagers. They help children develop good oral hygiene habits that will last throughout their lives. With regular check-ups and cleanings, we can help prevent the need for more extensive treatments down the road. At All American Smile Dental Studios, we work to keep kids (and grown-ups) relaxed and at ease when they visit our office.
