Preventive Dentistry Somers NY Dentist Somers Smiles

Preventive Care

The best way to get and maintain a beautiful smile is with quality preventive care. Visiting our office for regular exams allows us to diagnose and treat potential problems before they become big or painful issues.

Routine Exams & Cleanings

We recommend patients see us approximately every 6 months for a routine exam and cleaning. Our team will take necessary X-rays, and Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS will meet with you to discuss any concerns. After the exam, a hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth.

Oral Cancer Screenings

During your exam, your hygienist will do an oral cancer screening by looking at your lips, gums, jaw, and neck for any signs of cancer. Nearly 42,000 Americans each year are affected by oral and throat cancers, and early detection is key to a successful treatment plan.

Fluoride Treatments

To help make teeth more resistant to acids in the mouth caused by plaque, we recommend fluoride treatments to patients of all ages.

Sealants

Protective sealants guard teeth against decay. They are typically applied to children’s molars and premolars shortly after they erupt.

Nightguards & Mouthguards

Grinding your teeth at night causes a number of health issues, including headaches and damage to teeth. Somers Smiles can fit you with a custom-made nightguard to help protect your teeth and prevent clenching and grinding.

For people who play contact sports, custom-made athletic mouthguards are a great way to protect your teeth and jaw from trauma, including cracked, broken, and even missing teeth.

We want to take care of your smile, so call today to schedule an appointment at our convenient Somers dental office.

Restorative Dentistry Somers NY Dentist Somers Smiles

Restorative Care

There are times when our smiles need a little extra TLC to get back to beautiful. Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS, your dentist in Somers, is trained in a number of restorative procedures, so let her help you get back to your best smile.

Crowns & Bridges

If you have broken or cracked teeth, or if a large filling has caused a tooth to become misshapen, crowns can help get your teeth back to normal. Crowns are tooth-colored caps that are placed on top of damaged teeth to protect them and give them strength to guard against future damage. Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS and our team are careful in the molding, prepping, and placing of your crown, so you’re sure to get a comfortable, natural fit.

If you’re missing multiple teeth in a row, we can connect a dental bridge to crowns on either side of the missing teeth to “bridge” the gap. A bridge is a more comfortable solution to missing teeth compared to dentures.

Dentures

If you need to replace many teeth, up to an entire arch, dentures are a great solution. The materials used in today’s dentures allow for comfort, as well as natural function. Dentures also help to maintain the shape of your lips and face when teeth are missing.

Implant Restorations

Dental implants replace missing teeth using a small titanium post placed into the jawbone. Because of its biocompatible properties, the post fuses with the jawbone to provide a sturdy anchor for a restoration.

Once you’ve had an implant placed, visit our Somers, NY dental team for a restoration. We can place crowns and bridges on top of implants, and even fit you with implant-supported dentures that fit great and don’t slip.

Root Canal Therapy

Pain from an infected tooth can be excruciating and even unbearable. Root canal therapy can help relieve your pain and save your natural tooth. If he determines you need a root canal, Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS will walk you through the procedure and talk with you about your sedation options.

During the root canal therapy, Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS and our team will remove the infected pulp from the tooth, and then fill and seal the inside of the tooth, effectively protecting it from future infections. Finally, we’ll place a restoration — typically a crown — on top of the tooth to add strength and even more protection.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

When you experience decay and have a cavity, your Somers dentist uses tooth-colored materials to fill the cavity and stop the decay. These tooth-colored fillings are smaller than traditional silver fillings, so they require less prep work. They also leave behind more of the healthy tooth structure, preserving more of your natural tooth.

Let us give your smile a second chance. Contact us now to schedule your restorative consultation.

Sedation Dentistry at Somers NY Dentist Somers Smiles

Sedation Dentistry

Anxiety over dental visits is natural, and we know that many of our patients experience this anxiety. But we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed while you’re in our care, and to help, we offer sedation options for our nervous patients.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide creates a feeling of heightened relaxation in patients. Patients are awake during their procedure, but the gas helps them stay calm while we work. Breathing pure oxygen for just a few minutes easily reverses the effects of nitrous oxide, so you can safely drive yourself home.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, Somers dentist Dr. Gianna Ferranti, DDS offers oral conscious sedation. We will carefully prescribe you a pill to take prior to your appointment. By the time you’re in the dental chair, you’ll be relaxed and completely at ease. If you’ll be undergoing oral conscious sedation, you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.

IV Sedation

Patients who have severe dental anxiety or are having more invasive work done may benefit most from IV sedation. With this sedation method, you'll be conscious the whole time, but you won't remember your time in the dental chair. We carefully monitor your sedation the whole time, too, to keep you comfortable and safe.

Contact our Somers, NY dentist office today to learn more about our sedation options.
