Adult Preventative Care
Oral Hygiene is a vital aspect of health and wellness: teeth allow us to speak and eat, and keep facial features in alignment. Therefore it is essential to keep your mouth in good shape. Dental check-ups are an excellent way to achieve this goal. Once a dental problem becomes apparent, it may already be in an advanced stage. Prevention is the best option.
Most dental professionals recommend check-ups every 6 months, during which your teeth will be cleaned, examined, and x-rayed to check for signs of decay or disease. Take a proactive step towards dental health and call us today!
Pediatric Preventative Care
Children need dental care and twice-annual check-ups to ensure dental health later in life. Our practice will monitor the growth of your child's teeth, teach proper brushing and flossing techniques, and apply sealants and fluoride treatments at the appropriate developmental milestones.
Your child shouldn't have to fear their appointments; at Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Westbury, children like going to the dentist! Dr. Lampl raised two daughters and is terrific with kids. We keep toys on hand to entertain children in the waiting room, and have a box of prizes to reward our smallest patients. Contact us today to make an appointment for your child.
Extraction may be necessary when a tooth reaches an advanced state of decay. This procedure stops the pain of a decaying tooth. The space left behind can be filled with an implant or bridge to restore a natural look. If a tooth needs to be removed, Dr. Lampl's gentle touch ensures the best possible experience.
Wisdom teeth, which usually appear during the late teens or early twenties, are commonly extracted, since they have the potential to cause dental problems and crowding of the existing teeth. Dr. Lampl can assess your wisdom teeth and recommend a course of action. Call us today to make an appointment.
Enodontics (Root Canal)
When decay is allowed to penetrate the pulp (inner part) of the tooth, a root canal is often necessary. During this procedure, the pulp is cleaned and the decayed areas removed. Restoration of the tooth is usually achieved with a natural-looking porcelain crown. Call today to make an appointment.
Full Dentures are the best solution for those who have lost all, or almost all, of their teeth. Loss of teeth often leads to trouble eating and speaking, and collapse of facial features. But today's dentures are white and natural-looking – a beautiful solution! Dr. Lampl can custom-make a set of dentures that look and feel like real teeth. The dentures may be removable, or can be fixed in place with modern dental implant technology. Contact our office today to restore your youthful smile!
Partial Dentures are an ideal solution for patients who have lost some of their teeth, but do not wish to sacrifice those that remain for a full set of dentures. Partial dentures span the gap of missing teeth and are matched in color and shape to the natural teeth. Once they are in place, the partial dentures will look and feel like your original teeth.
