At Westside Family Dental, we provide dental cleanings and examinations to patients throughout New York City. We believe that preventative care is essential for staying in good oral health. Our goal is to keep our patients as healthy as possible, and the best way to do so is through ongoing dental care and teaching our patients how to practice good oral hygiene at home.
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that begin to appear in late adulthood. When these teeth are in their proper place, all is well. But often times, wisdom teeth can become painful when they crowd other teeth, and can lead to other problems. At Westside Family Dental we never want you or your child to be in pain. We often recommend oral surgery for wisdom tooth extraction to alleviate the discomfort of impacted wisdom teeth, and to ensure that all the rest of the teeth come in straight. Regular monitoring of the wisdom teeth can keep you or your child from requiring further dental corrections later in life.
If an infection or tooth decay reaches the root of your tooth, you are likely to experience pain as a result. Additionally, a root canal will need to be performed to salvage the tooth. Although the tooth will be dead, the root will be filled with a composite filling and a crown will be placed over the salvaged tooth to retain functionality and bite. Westside Family Dental is equipped to perform root canals, so you don’t have to worry about being referred to another dentist in New York City that specializes in root canals.
If you have a cavity that has resulted in extensive tooth decay or chipped a tooth beyond repair, your tooth may require a dental crown. Much like a crown that sits on the head of royalty, a dental crown sits on top of a tooth that is almost no longer salvageable. We take an impression for a dental crown, making necessary modifications for a complete tooth, salvage as much of your existing tooth as we can, and place the dental crown over your salvaged tooth.

Preventive dental care starts the moment you get your first tooth. From then, your baby should go to the dentist on a regular basis. When we teach them young, they will more likely understand the importance of healthy teeth.
If you need extra care on top of your preventive program, our staff will make for you a clear and comprehensive treatment plan. We will make it as easy as possible for you to get your treatment done.
