Dr. Markowitz and his friendly, professional staff are committed to helping you and your loved ones maintain healthy teeth and gums by providing a comprehensive preventive program. Regular preventive care including examinations, oral cancer screenings and professional teeth cleanings at our Manhasset dental office can help you avoid extensive dental procedures and safeguard your smile for a lifetime.
If you aren’t already, make sure that you brush your teeth every day (ideally after every meal) with fluoride-containing toothpaste. If Dr. Markowitz feels you have a high risk of cavities, he may recommend a mouth rinse that contains fluoride, which can help reduce tooth decay significantly. You should also avoid foods that get stuck in your teeth, or brush right after you eat them.
In addition to regular brushing and flossing, a complete and effective oral hygiene regimen involves periodic professional teeth cleanings at our Manhasset dental office. This allows our team to thoroughly remove plaque, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach crevices of your mouth, and to guide you on how to care for your teeth every day.
For younger patients, it’s important to instill healthy habits early on, to ensure that they will last a lifetime. As part of your or your child’s visit to our Manhasset dental office our team can provide extra protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Our goal is to diagnose adverse conditions early on, and to deliver the most straightforward and effective course of care.
Dr. Markowitz and his friendly, professional staff take pride in tailoring treatment to each patient’s needs and preferences, and we strive to make every visit as enjoyable as possible. Please feel free to schedule an appointment or to stop by to meet our team and learn more about the many treatments we provide.
