Every patient that walks into our Manhasset, NY area dentist office deserves the very best dental care. Led by Dr. Richard Sousa, our entire dental care team is here to help you attain optimal oral health. Preventive dental care is the foundation of our dental office. We focus on keeping the teeth and gums healthy. For our patients with dental health concerns, Dr. Sousa also offers a full menu of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments.
General dentistry involves the treatments and procedures necessary to prevent disease and maintain oral health. To accomplish this, we recommend you visit our dental office at least twice a year (every six months) for a routine checkup and teeth cleaning. At these visits, we will screen for periodontal disease, dental caries and other oral health issues. By monitoring your oral health at each visit, we will be able to intercept any developing problems and treatment them early.
One of our registered and experienced dental hygienists will perform a dental cleaning at each visit. This is an integral part of routine dental care because it will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed or cannot reach. If plaque is left to buildup on your teeth then you will likely develop tooth decay.
Failing to visit the dentist on a regular basis will lead to dental health issues that will develop into major problems if left untreated. Eventually, you may even be faced with tooth loss and bone deterioration. If dental problems are caught early, we can treat them with the most conservative general dentistry treatments. We offer the following treatments to help you maintain optimal oral health:
