There’s no denying that root canals get a bad rap. The good news, however, is that the unfortunate reputation of the root canal is actually undeserved these days. The technology and techniques used to perform root canals have improved considerably, and most people who have had a root canal report that the procedure was no more inconvenient or uncomfortable than a routine filling.
Dr. Anne Ferrara is skilled at performing comfortable, efficient, and successful root canals. If you are experiencing the pain of a dental infection, there’s no need to wait. Call us today so that we can evaluate your condition and get you in for an emergency dental appointment.
We’d love for each of our patients to keep every single one of their natural teeth. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the right approach. If a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, or its location is putting the health of other teeth in jeopardy, the best solution may be an extraction.
At Dr. Ferrara’s Central Park South dental office, we’re committed to providing comfortable, stress-free dentistry. If you need an extraction, call us. We’ll help guide you through the process and give you all the information you need for success.
It’s been said that the health of your gums is a mirror that reflects the health of the rest of your body. Periodontal disease has been linked to a number of serious medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory disease. It’s also the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults.
Your health is our top priority, and we take periodontal disease seriously. Routine cleanings are the first step in gum disease prevention, and we urge each of our patients to get their cleanings and check-ups. If you currently have periodontal disease, we’ll work with you to help get the disease under control and repair any damage.
At Dr. Anne Ferrara’s Central Park South dental office, we’ll never make you feel uncomfortable or guilty about your current level of health. We want to meet you where you’re at and work with you to help you get where you want to be.
Is it time for your next cleaning? Give us a call and we’ll find an appointment time that works for you.
Missing teeth can hold you back in a number of ways. You may feel discomfort when you eat, causing you to avoid fresh, healthy food. Your speech may be affected, causing you to avoid expressing yourself. And your self-esteem may suffer, causing you to avoid social situations.
There’s no question that our society attaches a stigma to missing teeth. Other people may make snap judgments about you based on the condition of your smile. As unfair as these judgments may be, they are difficult to avoid.
Dental implants are an innovative procedure that replaces lost teeth with lookalikes that both feel and function like your own natural teeth. They’ll complete your smile, allow you to eat and speak with confidence, and protect the health of your other teeth by helping to preserve precious periodontal bone.
Are you a good candidate for dental implants? Central Park South dental implants dentist Dr. Anne Ferrara is ready to meet with you and determine the best approach to replacing your missing teeth and improving the way you look and feel.
Crowns are an incredibly versatile treatment option, appropriate for a range of dental concerns. Central Park South dentist Dr. Anne Ferrara uses crowns to treat fractured teeth, unusually shaped teeth, teeth with large areas of decay, severely discolored teeth, worn-down or eroded teeth, and teeth that have been weakened by root canal therapy.
The materials used to make crowns have improved considerably in the past few years. Today, most crowns are indistinguishable from your own natural teeth.
There’s no reason to suffer the indignity of a damaged tooth. Call to schedule an appointment so that Dr. Ferrara can evaluate your condition, listen to your concerns, and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
