Practicing good oral hygiene, along with regular checkups, is essential for maintaining good health. Your teeth and gums impact the health of the entire body. If you don’t take care of them, you can get sick more often and increase your risk for diseases.

What is General Dentist?
Many people are unsure about the services that a general dentist provides. While the term “general” is often describes people that provide only the basics, the same cannot be said about our dental office. Dr. Rich and the staff at Park Avenue Dental provide a wide variety of services for patients throughout the 11793 area. We start with preventative care through education, teeth cleanings, and dental exams. We work to keep our patients’ teeth and gums healthy and in good condition. Without preventative health care and regular teeth cleanings, infections can develop and spread; eventually creating bone loss in both the teeth and the jawbone, which can lead to teeth falling out. With the majority of adults suffering from some form of tooth loss, preventative health care is not an option but a necessity.
Additionally, Dr. Rich focuses on restorative dentistry. When a patient injures their tooth, we will work to correct it in a way that appears completely natural and makes it possible to eat, speak, and behave normally. This is incredibly important for the millions of adults that injure their teeth every year while playing sports, getting into a car wreck, or injuring their teeth at work. By focusing on restorations, Dr. Rich and the staff at Park Avenue Dental make it possible for patients to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible.
If a patient loses their tooth, Dr. Rich can also replace it using a variety of modern dental procedures. Gone are the days where a lost tooth could not be replaced. Now there are multiple options for doing so and we can accommodate a variety of patient requests in our general dentistry office. This makes it possible for adults of all ages to maintain the functionality that can only come from having a full set of teeth.
To learn more about what options are available for restoring or replacing your teeth, call 516-785-1188 to schedule your appointment. Dr. Rich will conduct a thorough exam and make recommendations for what can be done to restore the full functionality and appearance of your smile. Dr. Rich can take care of all a patient’s dentistry needs because of our commitment to excellence and dedication to our patients.
Dr. Rich provides general dentistry to patients. If there are any additional necessary procedures that are outside of our expertise, we will refer you to an oral surgeon or other provider that we collaborate with on a regular basis. Our goal is to keep our patients in the best possible health so that when their health requires collaboration with other health care providers, we will bring them into the conversation. For the most part, we can complete numerous types of dental care.
