General Dentistry Long Island
Dr. Buono and his team are experienced at treating patients of all ages, including children as young as 3 years old. We are sensitive to children’s needs and provide gentle, yet effective treatment so children can form positive ideas about dental care from the start.
Dr. Buono believes that an educated patient is the healthiest patient. He educates patients on the best oral health practices, and provides them with the tools and products to sustain their oral health. This includes recommending appropriate products as well as brushing and flossing techniques.
One of the best ways to prevent extensive tooth decay is to stop it before it starts. Dental sealants are a coating placed on the tooth surface to defend against plaque and other bacteria. Sealants can be applied quickly and with no discomfort to the patient.
In addition to daily brushing and flossing, routine in-office cleanings are vital. Dr. Buono’s teeth cleanings are thorough and can remove plaque buildup and bacteria that regular care may have missed. This helps patients prevent the onset of gum disease and other oral health problems.
Healthy gums provide the foundation for a vibrant, healthy smile. With thorough preventative care and cleanings, Dr. Buono can help patients preserve the health of their gums and prevent gum disease. We also use laser therapy at Garden City Smiles to gently disinfect the gums and prevent the progression of disease.
