Keep Your Teeth Clean and Your Smile Healthy

General Dentistry Manhattan

The primary function of the dentist is to keep teeth healthy. This is the crux of dentistry, and preventive treatments are the best line of defense against problems that, once they've occurred, can only be repaired through restorative dentistry or cosmetic dentistry. Although we take pride in providing outstanding care within these two branches of dentistry, we always remember that the foundation of healthy, beautiful teeth starts with the general dentistry procedures we offer at our New York office. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Schwartz for a general dentistry treatment, contact our office in the heart of New York, right next to Central Park in Manhattan.

Oral Hygiene and Periodontal Disease

Regular visits to the dentist, along with daily brushing and flossing at home, are the backbone of good dental health. People looking for the most advanced techniques to keep their smiles in great shape will be more than pleased after they visit Dr. Schwartz. By employing digital x-rays with ultra-high magnification capabilities, the latest in anesthetic care, and highly detailed periodontal records, our patients' teeth benefit from oral hygiene care that's truly on the leading edge.

Gum Recession and Cervical Abrasions

There are many reasons that the gums can recede, including periodontal disease, brushing too hard, neglecting to care of the mouth, and chewing tobacco. By identifying the cause, we can stem the gum recession and keep it from continuing through several treatments. Cervical abrasion is when the upper part of the tooth, sometimes newly exposed from gum recession, loses some of its covering. To repair this malady, we utilize tooth-colored material that is very resistant to staining, preserving the tooth and shielding the sensitive inner tooth.

Teeth Grinding

Bruxism, more commonly known as teeth grinding, can sometimes seriously damage the teeth. Unconsciously occurring either as a nervous response to stress while awake or asleep, the teeth can wear themselves down or cause pain within the face and jaw. Although psychological therapy can reduce the stress that causes this habit, Dr. Schwartz can make custom-fit mouth guards to protect the teeth during sleep, modify the bite to help ease pressure, or replace worn-down fillings and crowns. If bruxism is affecting you, Dr. Schwartz can help.
