Regular dental exams and cleanings are the foundation of maintaining a healthy and radiant smile. At Dental Arts Rego Park, we prioritize your oral health, and our comprehensive dental exams and professional cleanings are designed to ensure that your smile remains in optimal condition.

Dental Exams
Our dental exams are not merely routine check-ups; they are thorough evaluations of your oral health. During a dental exam, our experienced team will perform a range of essential tasks, including:

Examination of Diagnostic X-rays
These X-rays are crucial for detecting hidden issues such as decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. They also help us assess tooth and root positions.

Oral Cancer Screening
We carefully inspect your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Gum Disease Evaluation
Checking for signs of periodontal disease in your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth is an integral part of our exams.

Examination of Tooth Decay
We use specialized dental instruments to check all tooth surfaces for signs of decay.

Examination of Existing Restorations
We assess the condition of your current fillings, crowns, and other restorations.

Professional Dental Cleaning
Professional dental cleanings, or dental prophylaxis, are performed by our registered dental hygienists. These cleanings complement our dental exams and involve:

Removal of Calculus (Tartar)
Calculus is hardened plaque that can only be removed with special dental instruments. It forms above and below the gum line and contributes to gum disease.

Removal of Plaque
Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria, food debris, and saliva that produces toxins, leading to gum inflammation – the first stage of periodontal disease.

Teeth polishing
This step helps remove stains and plaque not eliminated during regular brushing and scaling.
At Dental Arts Rego Park, we understand that prevention is the best cure. Our dental exams and cleanings are essential for detecting and addressing dental issues at their earliest stages, potentially saving you time, money, and discomfort in the long run. We prioritize your safety and comfort by utilizing digital X-rays, which reduce radiation exposure by 80-90% compared to traditional X-rays.
Your oral health is in excellent hands at Dental Arts Rego Park. We’re committed to providing you with comprehensive dental care dentistry our dental exams and cleanings are just one aspect of our dedication to your radiant smile.

How to Properly Brush & Floss

Maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime requires more than just regular dental visits. Your daily oral care routine plays a crucial role in achieving optimal oral health. At Dental Arts Rego Park, we are committed to empowering you with the knowledge and techniques necessary to care for your teeth and gums effectively.

Brushing Your Teeth

The foundation of a solid oral care routine is proper toothbrushing. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure you’re brushing your teeth effectively:

⦁ Choose the Right Toothbrush
Select a toothbrush with soft, rounded-end bristles and a small head. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends electric toothbrushes with rotating or oscillating heads for superior cleaning.

⦁ Angle the Brush
Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums and teeth.

⦁ Use Gentle, Circular Motions
Apply small, circular motions to gently brush the gumline and teeth. Avoid applying too much pressure, as this can damage the gums and tooth enamel.

⦁ Brush all Tooth Surfaces
Ensure that you brush all surfaces of every tooth, including the cheek-side, tongue-side, and chewing surfaces. Pay special attention to the back teeth.

⦁ Brush the Tongue
Don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove fungi, food particles, and debris that can contribute to bad breath.


Flossing is a critical step in preventing periodontal disease and maintaining your oral health. Follow these flossing guidelines:

⦁ Use an 18-inch Piece of Floss
Cut a piece of dental floss to approximately 18 inches in length.

⦁ Wrap the Floss
Wind one end of the floss around the middle finger of your left hand and the other end around the middle finger of your right hand until your hands are 2-3 inches apart.

⦁ Work between Teeth
Gently guide the floss between your teeth toward the gumline.

⦁ Form a “C” shape
Curve the floss in a “C” shape around each individual tooth, carefully sliding it beneath the gumline.

⦁ Move up and down
Slide the floss up and down several times to remove interdental plaque and debris. Avoid snapping the floss between teeth, which can harm the gums.

Proper brushing and flossing are paramount for good oral hygiene. These simple yet essential practices help prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, bad breath, and staining. By following these steps, you can maintain a healthy, radiant smile between your dental visits.

Oral Cancer Exam

Oral cancer is a serious medical condition that, if left undiagnosed and untreated, can have life-threatening consequences. At Dental Arts Rego Park, we are dedicated to your overall health, which is why we offer comprehensive oral cancer exams as a part of our commitment to your well-being.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Exams

Oral cancer is a pathologic process that often starts in an asymptomatic stage, meaning the typical signs of cancer may not be immediately noticeable. This makes regular oral cancer examinations crucial. Early detection is the key to successful treatment and improved outcomes.

Oral cancers can manifest in various areas of the oral cavity and maxillofacial region, including the lips, mouth, tongue, salivary glands, oropharyngeal region, gums, and face. Recognizing the signs of oral cancer in its initial stages is a critical step in managing the disease.

Reasons for Oral Cancer Examinations

Approximately 75% of oral cancers are linked to modifiable behaviors such as smoking, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption. Our dental team is not only here to provide dental care but also to educate and support you in making lifestyle changes, including smoking cessation.

During your oral cancer exam at Dental Arts Rego Park, we meticulously scrutinize the maxillofacial and oral regions for any signs of pathologic changes. These include:

⦁ Red Patches and Sores
Red patches on the floor of the mouth, the front and sides of the tongue, white or pink patches that fail to heal, and slow-healing sores that bleed easily can indicate pathologic (cancerous) changes.

⦁ Leukoplakia
This is a hardened white or gray, slightly raised lesion that can appear anywhere inside the mouth and may become cancerous if not treated.

⦁ Lumps
The presence of soreness, lumps, or thickening of tissue anywhere in the throat or mouth can signal potential problems that require further evaluation.

Regular oral cancer examinations are essential for detecting and addressing potential oral health issues at their earliest stages, which can be vital in saving time, money, and unnecessary discomfort down the road.

Oral Cancer Exams, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Our oral cancer examination is a painless process, involving a visual inspection and, if necessary, the use of advanced technologies such as lasers to identify any abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. Should any abnormalities, lesions, or lumps be detected during the examination, we will proceed with a diagnostic impression and treatment plan. In cases where initial treatments prove ineffective, a biopsy may be performed to determine the precise stage and grade of the oral lesion.

Oral cancer is considered to be present when the basement membrane of the epithelium has been compromised. If left untreated, malignant forms of cancer can readily spread to other parts of the oral and maxillofacial regions, posing further secondary health risks. Treatment methods vary depending on the precise diagnosis but may include excision, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

During your bi-annual check-ups, our dental team will perform a comprehensive oral cancer screening at least once a year. At Dental Arts Rego Park, your overall health and well-being are our top priorities. Our commitment to your safety, comfort, and early detection of potential health risks is unwavering, ensuring that you receive the best care possible.

At Dental Arts Rego Park, we understand that preventing dental issues is as important as treating them. One of the valuable preventive measures we offer is dental sealants. Sealants are a simple, effective, and non-invasive solution to protect your teeth and maintain excellent oral health.

Why Choose Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. More than 75% of dental decay starts in these deep grooves, making these teeth particularly susceptible to cavities. Sealants create a smooth, easily cleanable surface, reducing the risk of tooth decay and the need for more extensive dental procedures.

When to Consider Sealants

⦁ Children and Teenagers
As soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or during the cavity-prone years of 6-16, sealants are highly recommended to protect these vulnerable teeth.

⦁ Adults
Even adults with teeth that have deep grooves or depressions can benefit from sealants. These teeth may be hard to clean effectively with brushing and flossing alone, making sealants an excellent preventive measure.

⦁ Baby Teeth
In some cases, sealing baby teeth is advisable, particularly if they have deep grooves or depressions, and the child is prone to cavities.
The Sealant Application Process
Applying sealants is a straightforward, quick, and painless procedure. Here’s how it works:

⦁ Cleaning
We thoroughly clean the teeth to remove any plaque or debris.

⦁ Conditioning
We apply a special solution to the enamel surface to help the sealant bond effectively.

⦁ Application
The sealant material is carefully painted onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Depending on the type of sealant used, it may harden automatically or require curing with a special light.

Long-Lasting Protection
Sealants can safeguard your teeth from decay for many years, providing a protective barrier that minimizes the risk of cavities. However, we regularly check the condition of your sealants during your dental visits to ensure they remain intact and effective.
At Dental Arts Rego Park, we believe in the power of prevention, and dental sealants are just one of the tools we use to help you maintain optimal oral health. Our goal is to keep your smile healthy, vibrant, and free from the burden of unnecessary dental problems.

Dental Implants

At Dental Arts Rego Park, we understand that missing teeth can have a profound impact on your overall well-being and confidence. Dental implants are a remarkable solution that can restore not only your smile but also your oral health and quality of life. If you’re seeking a permanent and effective way to replace missing teeth, dental implants may be the ideal choice for you.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. These posts serve as sturdy foundations for replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, or dentures. The result is a restoration that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth.

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant procedure typically involves several stages:

⦁ Consultation
We’ll begin with a comprehensive examination of your oral health and discuss your dental concerns, goals, and medical history. Dental implants are a suitable option for most patients, but individual treatment plans may vary.

⦁ Implant Placement
In a minor surgical procedure, the dental implant is precisely positioned in your jawbone. Local anesthesia or sedation ensures your comfort during the procedure.


Over the course of several months, the implant bonds with the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration. This ensures the stability and durability of the implant.

⦁ Abutment Placement
Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant. This piece connects the implant with the final restoration.

⦁ Restoration
Your custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is securely affixed to the abutment, completing your new smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous advantages:

⦁ Aesthetic Excellence
Implants provide a natural and attractive appearance.

⦁ Functional Restoration
Implants restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

⦁ Long-Term Solution
Implants are known for their longevity and can last a lifetime with proper care.

⦁ Improved Oral Health
They help prevent bone loss and preserve the integrity of neighboring teeth.

⦁ Enhanced Self-Esteem
Implants offer the reassurance of a complete and beautiful smile.
Dental implants can be life-changing, providing you with a lasting solution for missing teeth and the ability to enjoy all the benefits of a complete, healthy smile. If you’re ready to restore your dental health and revitalize your quality of life, contact Dental Arts Rego Park for a consultation and explore the possibilities of dental implants.

⦁ Consultation
During your initial consultation, our dental team will examine your oral health, discuss your specific concerns, and determine if fixed bridges are the right solution for you.

⦁ Temporary Bridge
While your permanent bridge is being fabricated, a temporary bridge is placed to protect the prepared teeth and maintain your appearance.

Fixed bridges offer various advantages:

Bridges allow you to chew, speak, and smile confidently, just like with natural teeth.

⦁ Aesthetic Appeal
They match the color of your natural teeth, creating an undetectable restoration.

⦁ Versatility
Composite fillings can be used for small to moderate-sized cavities and are suitable for both front and back teeth.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, often referred to as gum disease, is a common yet serious condition that affects the supporting structures of your teeth, including the gums and bone. Maintaining good oral hygiene and understanding the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease is crucial for preserving your overall oral health.

Causes and Stages of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease typically begins with the accumulation of dental plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, on the teeth and gums. When plaque is not effectively removed through regular brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional.

The disease progresses through several stages:
⦁ Gingivitis
This is the earliest stage of periodontal disease and is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. It is usually a result of poor oral hygiene.

⦁ Periodontitis
Without proper treatment, gingivitis can advance to periodontitis. In this stage, the supporting bone and fibers that hold your teeth in place are damaged. Pockets form between the teeth and gums, leading to infection and potential tooth loss.

⦁ Advanced Periodontitis
In the final stage, there is a significant loss of supportive bone and gum tissue. Teeth may become loose and shift in position. Severe complications can arise, including tooth loss.

⦁ Prevention and Treatment
Preventing periodontal disease is primarily achieved through diligent oral hygiene practices. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings. In cases of advanced periodontal disease, more complex treatments, such as scaling and root planing or surgical procedures, may be required.

If you notice any signs of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, or changes in the alignment of your teeth, it’s essential to seek professional dental care promptly. Periodontal disease can lead to more severe health issues beyond your mouth, making early intervention vital to maintaining your overall well-being.
Our experienced dental team is here to provide you with comprehensive periodontal care, ensuring your oral health remains in excellent condition. Don’t hesitate to contact us for guidance, prevention, or treatment to protect your smile and your health.

Bruxism is a common dental condition characterized by the grinding or clenching of teeth, often involuntarily during sleep. While occasional teeth grinding may not cause harm, chronic bruxism can lead to various dental and health issues, making it crucial to understand, identify, and manage this condition.

Causes and Symptoms

Bruxism can occur due to a variety of factors, such as stress, anxiety, misaligned teeth, or an abnormal bite. The most prevalent form of bruxism happens at night, during sleep, and may be unknowingly disrupting your oral health.
Common symptoms of bruxism include:

⦁ Tooth Wear
Over time, the grinding and clenching can cause tooth enamel to wear down, leading to sensitivity and an increased risk of tooth decay.

⦁ Jaw Pain
Persistent clenching can strain the jaw muscles, resulting in discomfort or even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

⦁ Headaches
The muscle tension associated with bruxism can lead to frequent headaches, particularly in the morning.

⦁ Facial Pain
The prolonged pressure on the facial muscles can result in facial pain or discomfort.

⦁ Disrupted Sleep
If your bruxism is loud, it may also affect your partner’s sleep.

⦁ Prevention and Treatment
To prevent and manage bruxism, there are various strategies you can employ. Stress management techniques, relaxation exercises, or therapy may help address underlying emotional triggers. A common treatment approach involves using a mouthguard or splint to protect teeth from grinding during sleep. These oral devices are custom-fitted to your mouth and provide a barrier between your upper and lower teeth.

Additionally, addressing any misaligned teeth or correcting bite issues can contribute to reducing bruxism. It is essential to consult with a dental professional who can assess your condition, identify the causes, and recommend the most suitable treatment plan.

Ignoring bruxism can lead to severe dental problems, including tooth damage and loss, as well as chronic pain. Early intervention and effective management can help protect your oral health and overall well-being.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure designed to expose more of the tooth’s surface by reshaping the gum line. This procedure serves both aesthetic and functional purposes, making it a versatile solution for various dental concerns.

Common Reasons for Crown Lengthening:

⦁ Cosmetic Enhancement
Many individuals seek crown lengthening to improve the appearance of their smile. It can create a more balanced and symmetrical look, especially when excessive gum tissue makes teeth appear short.

⦁ Restorative Dentistry
In some cases, a tooth may be damaged or decayed below the gum line, making it challenging to place a crown or restoration effectively. Crown lengthening helps to reveal more of the tooth, allowing for proper restoration.

⦁ Gummy Smile
Some individuals naturally have more gum tissue covering their teeth, creating the appearance of a “gummy smile.” Crown lengthening can correct this by revealing more of the tooth structure.

⦁ Functional Needs
Crown lengthening may also be necessary when teeth are too short for orthodontic treatment or when there’s a need to adjust the gum line for healthier attachment and stability.

⦁ The Procedure
Crown lengthening is typically performed under local anesthesia for your comfort. Your dentist or periodontist will carefully remove excess gum tissue, creating a new, more esthetic gum line. In some cases, they may also need to remove small amounts of bone to achieve the desired results.

After the procedure, you may experience some minor discomfort and swelling, but this typically resolves within a few days. It’s crucial to follow post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

Benefits of Crown Lengthening
⦁ Crown lengthening offers various benefits, including:
⦁ Enhanced aesthetics with a more attractive smile.
⦁ Improved oral health by exposing hidden tooth decay or damage.
⦁ Better tooth stability for orthodontic or restorative treatments.
⦁ Increased confidence in your smile’s appearance.

Whether you’re seeking to address cosmetic concerns or dental health issues, crown lengthening is a versatile procedure that can help you achieve the smile you desire. Consult with your dental professional to determine if crown lengthening is the right solution for your specific needs.

Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing

Periodontal scaling and root planing, often referred to as a deep cleaning, is a crucial non-surgical dental procedure aimed at addressing gum disease and promoting oral health. This treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from below the gumline, helping to prevent the progression of gum disease and its associated complications.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a prevalent dental condition that begins with the accumulation of plaque on the teeth. If not adequately removed through regular oral hygiene practices, plaque can harden into tartar, which harbors harmful bacteria. These bacteria can lead to gum inflammation, bleeding, and infection, causing the gums to pull away from the teeth, forming pockets.
Untreated gum disease can lead to serious issues, such as tooth loss, bone deterioration, and an increased risk of systemic health problems. Periodontal scaling and root planing are the primary steps in treating gum disease, especially in its early stages.

The Deep Cleaning Procedure

Scaling: This process involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and toxins from the tooth surfaces and below the gumline. Special dental instruments are used to carefully clean the root surfaces of the teeth.

Root Planing

Root planing focuses on smoothing the root surfaces, making it more challenging for bacteria to adhere and helping the gums reattach to the tooth. This step also aids in reducing inflammation and promoting healing.

Benefits of Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing

Improved Gum Health: Scaling and root planing can effectively eliminate the source of gum disease, promoting healthier gums and preventing further deterioration.

Reduction in Gum Pockets: By removing bacteria and toxins, the depth of gum pockets is reduced, preventing their expansion and preserving gum attachment to the teeth.

⦁ Prevention of Tooth Loss
Treating gum disease in its early stages through deep cleaning can prevent the need for more invasive treatments or tooth extraction.

⦁ Enhanced Overall Health
Healthy gums are linked to better overall health, as untreated gum disease has been associated with systemic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

Your dental provider will assess the condition of your gums and recommend periodontal scaling and root planing when necessary. This procedure, combined with proper at-home oral care, can help you regain and maintain gum health, ensuring a healthy smile for years to come.
