General Dentistry An Overview
Dr. Sal Lotardo and the team at Bella Smiles in Riverhead and Roslyn, NY offer comprehensive general dentistry, providing a foundation for maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile for a lifetime. When it comes to your dental care, there is no “one size fits all” approach. Each member of our team that you interact with during your visit will take the time to get to know you, understand your unique oral health needs and provide personalized care.
General dental services include preventive dental care and many procedures associated with the maintenance of a healthy smile:
Dentistry for Children
Dr. Lotardo offers children’s dental services including dental sealants and sports mouthguards, making our family dentist office a convenient location for all of your family’s dental health needs.
We recommend that you bring your child to the dentist once the primary teeth have begun to erupt. Even though your child is very young at this time, early visits are important- they offer the opportunity for us to look for any signs of tooth development problems that may also have an effect on other aspects of normal growth and development such as speech.
Children who establish good oral habits early on are more likely to enjoy a healthy smile and maintain it for a lifetime.
Dr. Lotardo also offers comprehensive orthodontic care, including Invisalign invisible braces for teens and adults. As a family dentist, he can monitor the development of your child’s permanent teeth and make appropriate recommendations if orthodontic care is considered beneficial.
Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry
In addition to offering comprehensive general dentistry, we also offer cosmetic and restorative dentistry services. Dr. Lotardo is an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry making him qualified to perform any cosmetic treatments. He performs each cosmetic treatment with the highest standard of care, advanced technology, and quality materials. Dr. Lotardo can transform your smile helping you regain your confidence. He also offers many treatments to help his patients attain a healthy smile. Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring health and function to teeth that are broken, worn down, or missing. Complex problems like worn, broken or missing teeth, TMJ disorder, and advanced periodontal disease can prevent a person from living a normal, healthy life. If such problems go untreated, they will have negative consequences on your overall health in the long run.
