Exams & Cleanings
Regular dental exams and cleanings can help us assess and diagnose any problems early and give teeth an extra cleaning which will help to prevent further decay and gum disease. Introducing regular dental exams and cleanings to your child early on will set them up with a healthy habit that could save them the need for extensive dental work in the future. We know that going to the dentist may not be your child or teens favorite thing, that’s why we make sure they understand the treatment they are receiving and why it is necessary for their oral health. At Smile Lab, we recommend visiting us twice a year for cleanings, although children at higher risk of cavities may need to come more frequently. Book an appointment with our friendly team today to learn more about this treatment. We can’t wait to meet you!
Tooth pain can be an unpleasant reminder as to why oral health care is so important. A toothache usually stems from an irritated or damaged nerve caused by a deep cavity or injury infiltrating the tooth pulp. If there is risk of infection or the nerve is too damaged to recover on its own a root canal is needed. Root canals are often depicted in a negative light, but at Smile Lab we want to assure you that root canals are a safe, painless and effective way of saving your existing tooth from further damage and infection.
Our team will begin by removing the damaged pulp from inside the tooth. This sounds painful, but we will use a mixture of anesthetics to numb the mouth and sedation therapy to completely relax you and relieve any pain you may feel. The tooth will be filled and sealed and a filling or crown placed over it to restore the natural structure of your tooth. You may have some slight discomfort and tenderness after the anesthesia wears off. This is normal and pain medication can help. To learn more about this treatment, call our New York, NY clinic today and book an appointment with Smile Lab.
Our goal is for our patients to have healthy, natural teeth to avoid needing extensive dental procedures in their adult life. Sealants are a great way to ensure that extra level of protection for your child’s teeth and we encourage parents who are worried about their child’s oral hygiene to consider this convenient and effective treatment. Sealants work by sealing the grooves in the teeth with a resin material, smoothing the surface and stopping bacteria from forming in the cracks. The material is hardened with a specialized curing light, making the procedure even faster and there is no need for any anesthesia, as it is also pain free. This amazingly easy and cost effective procedure could prevent your child from needing dental procedures in the future.

Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral exams aren’t just important for tooth and gum health, in fact many of our patients are surprised to learn that serious issues such as oral cancer can be detected from these exams also. At Smile Lab, we cover the teeth, gums, lips, tongue, jaw and cheeks during our oral exams to check for any soft tissue abnormalities. This examination can be done in the time it takes to brush your teeth, yet it could prove life-saving!
The American Cancer Society reports that 7,000 deaths occur from oral cancer out of 30,000 cases annually, proving that early detection and treatment is key. If during the physical examination we feel anything unusual, we will suggest either a digital x-ray or a laboratory biopsy and microscopic analysis. Our award-winning dentist Dr. Waise Ebrahimi can recommend lifestyle changes for you if you are concerned about oral cancer.
