At our dental practice, you will be able to have comprehensive dental exams, dental cleanings, and just about any other tooth procedure that you may need. Whether you need dental implants, or treatment with Invisalign invisible braces, you will be able to have excellent treatment at our dental practice. If you come to our office, and we discovered that you have tooth decay, our Fort Greene dentist will be able to treat your tooth decay. The cavity will be able to be filled with either a tooth-colored composite or silver amalgam filling. Different fillings work better in different tooth locations and on different sized cavities. If your tooth decay is in a front tooth, where it can easily be seen when you speak or smile, our dentist will probably recommend that your tooth is restored using a tooth-colored composite filling. If the tooth decay is on a flat chewing surface of a molar, you will most likely be recommended to get a silver amalgam filling. While tooth-colored fillings are more aesthetically pleasing, silver amalgam fillings are harder and can withstand more vigorous chewing pressure.

Two of the best things you can do to have excellent oral health, is to have a periodic dental exam, and a periodic tooth cleaning. During a dental exam your teeth will be examined for many different types of problems, including dental decay or problems resulting from tooth grinding. Your gums will also be examined to make sure they are healthy, and your entire mouth will be screened for any signs of oral cancer. If your gums are shown to have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months to get your gums back on the road to good health. If you would like to see our Fort Greene dentist for exemplary dental care, contact us today.
