As most patients learn quickly, poor oral hygiene can affect much more than just your smile. Gum disease, if left untreated over years, can cause tooth loss, receding gums and the degradation of underlying bone. What starts off as a mild case of gingivitis can manifest into full blown periodontitis, if plaque and tartar are allowed to build up and harden.
Research has also linked advanced periodontal disease with an increased risk for stroke, cardiovascular problems and even Alzheimer’s disease. For this reason, Dr. Blaustein offers a number of non-surgical treatments – including scaling and root planing – to remove excess tartar and rid the gums of harmful bacteria, thus averting the need for more invasive (surgical) interventions.
This non-invasive perio therapy is just one of many general dentistry services offered at his Chelsea, New York City office. Root canals, professional cleanings and tooth-colored fillings are part of a comprehensive list of treatments offered.
Achieve a healthy, attractive smile
The field of cosmetic dentistry is constantly evolving, with new treatments designed to help patients achieve a healthy, dazzling smile. Studies have demonstrated that an attractive, confident smile not only boosts self-esteem, it affects how one is perceived by others.
Dr. Blaustein can help patients address the following issues:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Stained or discolored tooth enamel
- Replacing old metal (amalgam) fillings
- Gaps between teeth
- Uneven gum tissue
Invisalign teeth straightening trays, cosmetic bonding, porcelain crowns, ZOOM laser tooth whitening and dental veneers are some of the most popular procedures for attaining a beautiful smile at Chelsea Dental Aesthetics. Individuals who’ve been told they have a “gummy smile” may also benefit from laser gum contouring which can create a more balanced, visually-pleasing look.
During a thorough evaluation by Dr. Blaustein and his team, patients are given an overall picture of their oral health that details any evidence of periodontal disease, tooth structure problems, decay, bite an TMJ function, as well as aesthetics.
