Located within the borough of Queens in New York City is the neighborhood of Forest Hills. With a population of 83,728 by the 2010 census records, it covers an area of 2.6 square miles. Forest Hills was once the home of the U.S Open tennis tournament. And a key scene in the 1951 Alfred Hitchcock film “Strangers on a Train” takes places at that famous West Side Tennis Club. The Beatles performed a concert their in their heyday, and so have the currently popular Mumford & Sons. Among its notable residents are actor David Caruso, half of the great Simon & Garfunkel, Art Garfunkel, one time vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro, former New York Knicks player Ernie Grunfeld, and fashion designer Helen Keller. And in the fictional world of comic books, it is also the home to Spider-Man. (source: Wikipedia)
Prevention is at the heart of good dental care. We can't be with you to supervise your brushing and flossing at home, of course, but with a visit to our dentist in Forest Hills every six months, we can ensure that the odds are in your favor for maintaining strong teeth and healthy, vibrant gums. Our twice-yearly oral examination at our Forest Hills dental office consists of a thorough inspection of your teeth, fillings, gums, restorations, and supporting structures; as well as analyzing your occlusion (bite), x-rays, and doing a screening for oral cancer. And with a teeth cleaning, you can say goodbye to any plaque and tartar that have been stubbornly clinging between teeth and in gum pockets. Should a cavity be detected as part of the exam, we are pleased to offer several fine materials for fillings.
Crowns and veneers both serve similar purposes in the covering of teeth that are chipped, broken, crooked, discolored, or have other flaws. A crown is placed on top of the tooth, while veneers are placed over the fronts of them. Crowns can be used to strengthen weakened teeth also, while veneers are purely a cosmetic solution. Root canals are done to treat a tooth with an infection and is typically the only way to save the tooth from extraction. When you do have missing teeth, though, our dentist in Forest Hills will offer you a bridge, dentures, or dental implants as a way of replacing that tooth and giving you back your complete smile. We also do teeth whitening, handle TMJ disorder, pediatric dental care, and we offer Invisalign, orthodontic treatment with clear, plastic aligners instead of metal braces.
