At East Hills Dental Associates, we provide comprehensive dental services and treatments that address a range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Our office uses state of the art techniques and technology to provide high-quality dental care with natural and lasting results. Dr. Richard Sousa and Dr. Melody Ahdoot want their patients to enjoy optimal oral health, and it all starts with a thorough, personalized dental health examination. Our office is located in Roslyn Heights and we are currently welcoming patients from surrounding communities including Old Brookville, NY.
As a general dentist office, our job is to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Visiting East Hills Dental Associates two times a year is the best way to achieve this and maintain a healthy smile. At each visit we will clean and polish your teeth, perform a thorough dental exam, and take x-rays when necessary. We will screen for gum disease, cavities, and any other signs of underlying health issues.
Discovering dental problems in their earliest stages is optimal because treatment is easier and more conservative. When patients skip their dental checkups, the plaque will build up and can easily lead to gum disease or tooth decay. Our menu of general dental procedures includes:
Dental Problems we Treat
There are many dental problems besides the usual cavities and gingivitis that Dr. Sousa and Dr. Ahdoot can treat at our Old Brookville, NY area dentist office. Having dental related problems can impact the quality of your life and cause further damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. We offer personalized care to help you get your oral health back to normal. Always keeping your long term dental health in mind, we take the time to look for any underlying causes that will compromise your results.
Dr. Sousa offers all types of dental implants as a solution to missing teeth. He uses advanced technology that allows him to create personalized treatment plans. This includes a 3D image of the patient’s mouth anatomy allowing Dr. Sousa to strategically plan the precise location of the implants.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can lead to serious medical conditions if it is not treated. Dr. Sousa offers treatment for this and obstructive sleep apnea using an oral sleep appliance. Snoring loudly and gasping for air is one of the key symptoms of sleep apnea. Dr. Sousa has worked with many patients and their physicians to help them manage their sleep apnea, restoring health, and reducing associated risks.
TMJ Related Symptoms
Dr. Sousa has experience treating TMJ disorders and other related bite problems. The main TMJ symptoms include teeth grinding, known as bruxism, and frequent headaches. A TMJ treatment plan is individualized for each patient depending on their specific issues. Treatment may include a mouthguard, night guard, restorative dental treatments, or orthodontics.
Fear of the Dentist
Many people suffer from fear of the dentist and dental anxiety. For this reason, East Hills Dental Associates will take the time to listen to our patients and help find a solution so that they can receive the dental care they need. To help our patients feel relaxed, we offer oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
Whether you want to straighten your teeth because of oral health issues or for a better looking smile, Dr. Sousa can fix it. Metal braces are not the only way to get a straighter smile. We offer several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can straighten teeth including porcelain veneers, minimal prep dental veneers, and tooth bonding.
