General and Family Dentistry in Selden, NY
Checkups and hygiene are just the beginning of your dental care from Dr. Stephen Scotto-Lavino.
As your dentist, Dr. Stephen Scotto-Lavino will focus all of his efforts on your oral health. General family dentistry is essential to achieving a healthy smile, and our Selden, NY dental office offers complete dental care to help you and your family find the way to optimal dental function and form.
General family dentistry is the backbone of our practice and your oral health. You know that you need regular dental cleanings and exams, and these visits form the basic support structure for the rest of your treatment plan.
General dentistry at our Selden dental office includes:
Periodontal Care for Gum Health
You can’t have complete oral health without healthy gums, and that’s why our general family dental care includes periodontal care. Periodontal care covers problems such as gum disease, which can threaten the integrity of your smile and cause big problems like tooth loss.
Children’s General Dental Care
We will happily treat your children. Beginning around age five, your child can come to our Selden, NY dental office, and we’ll help them avoid the kinds of oral health problems that kids’ smiles often face. By offering children’s dentistry at the same office where you receive your regular general dental care, we make sure that visits to the dentist – and your life – are easy.
One of the main causes of TMJ problems and chronic headaches is teeth grinding. Anxiety and bite misalignments are the usual causes of teeth grinding, and we can help shield your smile from damage and lessen the negative effects of nighttime teeth grinding with custom made nightguards. This general dentistry treatment can make a big difference in the life of your smile.
