Dr. Novick and the team at Celebrity Dental in Franklin Square, NY provide a full range of general dentistry services to help patients of all ages preserve healthy teeth and gums. In addition to routine examinations, we offer dental fillings and gum disease treatment to help get your oral health back on track. If dental damage is identified during your appointment, Dr. Novick will recommend the right treatment to help you maintain your pearly whites. We even offer an after hours phone number and last minute appointments for those inconvenient dental emergencies.
Dental Cleanings and Examinations
Although brushing and flossing are certainly important, visiting the dentist every six months is just as vital for extending the longevity of your natural teeth and preventing decay from occurring. During your appointment, one of our hygienists will take digital x-rays to identify any potential problems and thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. As part of your dental cleaning, we can provide fluoride to strengthen enamel, as well as dental sealants to protect molars from decay.
Accidents happen, and when they do, they can affect your smile and oral health. If you or your child is faced with a severe toothache, jaw pain, or knocked-out tooth, one of our friendly front office team members will schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. For those after hours dental emergencies, please call us at (516) 410-0389.
Because oral health can have a direct impact on the rest of your body, we believe in abiding by a holistic mindset for treating our patients. As part of our holistic dentistry services, we offer mercury-free, BPA-free, and if so desired, metal-free restorations for our patients.
For patients with mild to moderate enamel erosion, we can repair a tooth and restore its structural integrity with dental fillings made from composite resin. This material is not only safer than amalgam, but offers more realistic results.
Root Canal Treatment
When decay penetrates the underlying layers of the tooth and impacts the roots, the tooth can no longer be repaired with just a dental filling or crown. In such cases, we offer safe and effective root canal treatment. This treatment involves removing the unhealthy bacteria from the center of the tooth, along with the tissue from within the pulp chamber and replacing it with a material known as gutta percha. A customized dental crown is typically placed over the tooth to provide maximum strength.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease affects roughly 50 percent of the American population. In it’s milder stages, it tends to cause prolonged dental sensitivity and gum irritation. If it progresses, it can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and bone degeneration. Catching and treating the condition early can help preserve your oral health. We offer scaling and root planing as a nonsurgical, conservative approach to treating gum disease. During this treatment, special dental instruments will remove the unhealthy bacteria from below the gum line so that the gums fit more securely around the base of the tooth.
If a tooth is unable to be repaired with a dental filling or root canal treatment, or you have problematic wisdom teeth, Dr. Novick offers both simple and complex tooth extractions.
