Preventive dentistry consists of procedures and practices that strive to prevent the development of any oral health problems. In addition to brushing twice a day and flossing daily, patients should attend biannual professional cleanings and examinations. Drs. Paul D. Derman and Burton Lavin can also review proper at-home care techniques with you during these appointments.
Our sole purpose is to make sure that you and your family have gorgeous, healthy smiles. We provide patients of all ages with a wide array of general dentistry procedures. During routine dental visits, we will diagnose and treat any dental problems that may be discovered, using treatments such as:
Dental fillings will be placed when a cavity has formed in the tooth. Depending on a patient’s request, we can use either silver amalgam fillings or more natural-looking porcelain dental fillings. Composite material may be used for restoring damaged or worn teeth as well.
Root canal therapy may be necessary if an infection occurs due to untreated cavities or tooth damage. One of our dentists will remove any infected or diseased pulp from within the tooth. Root canal therapy tends to be viewed negatively; however, with modern technology, the procedure can be performed smoothly and virtually painlessly.
Periodontal (gum) disease can take one of two possible forms – gingivitis, a mild form of the disease, or periodontitis, a more severe form of the disease – both of which have damaging effects on your oral health. Our dentists offer non-surgical treatments such as scaling and root planing, which involve removing plaque and tartar from periodontal pockets. In more severe cases, surgery may be recommended.
