If you are looking for a dental practice that will provide complete dental care for all members of your family, you should visit us at Fifth Avenue Dental Associates. At our dental practice, you can receive extensive dental care, or simply have a Little Italy teeth cleaning, or a cavity filled.

When you come to our dental practice, you will be seen by one of our top-notch dentists, just one of whom is Dr. George Diacoumakos. At our dental practice, your teeth will be screened for dental cavities. Dental cavities are caused by acids which eat through your tooth enamel. These acids are the result of materials in dental plaque mixing with the saliva and carbs in your mouth. Dental plaque is constantly created in your mouth, however, it should be removed from your teeth with regular tooth brushing and flossing. The dental plaque that you cannot easily reach is removed by professional dental cleanings. At our office, patients can get fluoride treatments to strengthen their tooth enamel. Children’s teeth are also more prone to getting cavities because not only are they less effective tooth-brushes, but they also have teeth which have pits and grooves on them. These pits and grooves make it easier for plaque to stick to their teeth, and for the acids to eat through their teeth. When you have a dental cavity, you may feel pain when you eat something that is very sweet. You may also see a tiny hole in your tooth. The best thing you can do to protect your teeth from dental cavities is to brush and floss regularly, and to have a periodic little Italy teeth cleaning at our office every six months. For children, we also offer dental sealants that are actually painted onto the flat chewing surfaces of molars. These dental sealants not only act as a physical barrier between the teeth and plaque, but make it more difficult for plaque to stick to the teeth.

Preventive dental care in Little Italy

At our dental practice, Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, we have many different types of dental specialists on staff. Just one of our general dentists is Dr. George Diacoumakos. Our Little Italy dentist can provide you with preventive dental care in the form of dental exams, dental cleanings, and certain dental treatments.

In order to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, it is extremely important to practice excellent at-home dental hygiene. However, you will also want to come to our dental practice for professional dental cleanings about every six months. Our general Little Italy dentist can also provide you with a complete dental exam to make sure that your teeth, gums, and mouth are remaining healthy. When it comes to excellent dental care, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is much easier to fix a dental problem when it is early in its development, rather than wait until you have a serious dental problem. For example, it is much easier to get a filling for a tiny cavity, then wait until extensive decay has reached the center of your tooth and you need to have a root canal treatment. For this reason, preventive dental care is also cost effective because it can save you lots of money in terms of dental treatment. Professional dental cleanings are a very important part of preventive dental care because they will keep teeth from developing cavities by removing plaque; they will also help prevent gum disease. At our practice, we also offer fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel. This will keep cavities to a minimum, if not eliminate them altogether. We also offer dental sealants for our young patients. Dental sealants are actually painted on, and are commonly used on the flat chewing surfaces of children’s molars and premolars. They keep cavity-causing plaque from being able to adhere to the teeth, and also act as a preventive barrier to tooth decay.

Implants, tooth loss in Dyker Heights

Many patients come to our dental practice, Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, when they are suffering with tooth loss. Just one of our top notch general dentists is Dr. George Diacoumakos. At our dental practice, our dentist can provide you with Dyker Heights implants for teeth replacement that look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth.

At our dental practice, we have many different expert general dentists and dental specialists on staff so that you can receive any type of care that you may need. If you are thinking about getting dental implants, you can do no better than to get your Dyker Heights implants at our dental practice. If you have a space left by a missing tooth, it is very important to have the tooth replaced. When you get dental implants, it solves two of the problems that need to be addressed – but are not often thought of – when you have missing teeth. If a person has a gap left by a missing tooth, adjacent teeth will try to move over to fill in the gap. This can cause serious dental problems. In addition, when you chew, the tooth that is opposite the gap will be moved up and down and this can cause other periodontal problems. Getting a dental implant will solve this tooth loss problem. Additionally, when a patient has a missing tooth, the jawbone will atrophy due to the fact that there is not a tooth root present any longer. However, when a patient gets a titanium dental implant root inserted into their jawbone, this will solve the problem of having the missing tooth root and your jawbone will stay healthy and will not atrophy. This means that you will be able to keep a more youthful appearance. And of course, dental implants will not only restore your smile and have it looking great once again, but will also allow you to eat and speak once again with total confidence.

At our dental practice we have many different specialists on staff who are able to provide you with all types of dental care. When you want to be sure that the dental practice you use is the finest dental practice around, you will want to see us at Fifth Avenue Dental Associates. Many patients come to see us for dental care in Bay Ridge when they either want to get porcelain dental veneers or have dental bonding performed.

Both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are used to correct cosmetic problems in teeth. Our dentist will be able to assess your individual situation and let you know which type of treatment method will best correct your cosmetic smile problem. Just one of our many dentist is Dr. George Diacoumakos. When you make an appointment to come to our dental practice, you will be able to have an appointment with the dentist who provides treatment in your current area of need. Both cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers are two effective ways of fixing teeth with cosmetic problems. However, it does take an expert dentist at our practice to let you know which type of dental care in Bay Ridge will work best for you.

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to cover the front portion of the tooth. The porcelain veneers are extremely thin, but they are also very strong. Porcelain veneers are made to permanently cover the front portion of the tooth and can be used if you have a tooth that is chipped or has surface cracks in the enamels. Cosmetic problems may also be able to be treated using dental bonding. When our dentist uses dental bonding, a cosmetic resin is used to cover or repair the tooth problem. You can think of this cosmetic resin as a type of putty which can be molded into shape before it is cured. Once the dental bonding is cured, it cannot be distinguished from your own tooth enamel. Dental bonding can last a long time and is less expensive to get than a porcelain veneer. However, dental bonding is not a good solution for teeth with larger cosmetic problems. The porcelain veneer will be stronger than the dental bonding in many situations. You will be happy to know though, that our dentist is highly skilled in fixing teeth with dental bonding. This is very important whenever you get dental bonding performed, since the success of the treatment largely depends on the dentist’s ability to successfully and aesthetically mold this type of material.

Are you looking for a dental practice that will be able to provide you with a wide range of dental services? At our dental office, Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, we have many different dentists on staff who specialize in a wide variety of dental services. This means that if you ever need the services of a dentist who specializes in a particular area, you will not need to go to a different dental practice that you do not know, to get the services that you need. When you need to have your teeth restored with either veneers, crowns, or bridges, you will want to be seen by our expert Dyker Heights dentist at our practice.

At Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, just one of our expert and highly trained dentists is Dr. George Diacoumakos. When you come to our dental practice needing to have a tooth restored, our Dyker Heights dentist will first review your individual dental situation and then let you know the best way to have this done. If you have a purely cosmetic tooth problem, he may well recommend that you get a porcelain veneer to fix the situation. Porcelain veneers are actually thin shells that are made of porcelain, that are made to cover the front of a tooth. The veneers are permanently attached to the tooth, and are made to last for many years. Porcelain veneers are able to restore teeth that have a variety of cosmetic problems including: teeth that are too short; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are stained and cannot be brightened using professional dental whitening or bleaching methods; and many other cosmetic dental problems.

Our Dyker Heights dentist can also use porcelain crowns to restore teeth. Crowns are generally used when a tooth needs to have its function improved or to be strengthened. For example, if a tooth has too many fillings and is at risk of cracking, our dentist may decide that the best way to proceed is to restore it with a porcelain crown. There are times when porcelain crowns are also use for purely cosmetic reasons. Porcelain crowns are also used as the top portion of dental implants, or to restore teeth after a root canal procedure. If you have missing teeth, our dentist will be able to provide you with a fixed or removable dental bridge, so that you will be able to chew better and so that your smile will look completely restored.
