General Dentistry in Staten IslandDr. Marshall S Skopp’s services encompass a wide array of effective dental treatments that enrich your dental health and well-being. General dentistry is a broad term that describes many of our routine restorative, cosmetic, and preventative procedures. These do not include advanced techniques and treatments.
Let’s go over a sample of some of the general dentistry procedures you can receive from Dr. Skopp. Roughly two-thirds of dental procedures fall within the categories of diagnostic and preventative. They include:Professional cleanings
This is the backbone of what we do as dentists. Teeth cleanings are a terrific service because, although brushing and flossing are great oral-care habits, we have instruments that get your teeth even cleaner, and with minimal pain or intrusion.Dental Implants
Nowadays, we use dental implants made from very strong materials (usually titanium alloy) that last several years with minimal upkeep. It’s no surprise why this has become one of the most popular and effective ways to address missing teeth.Full/Partial Dentures
Whether you need a few teeth replaced, a whole row, or even your entire mouth, dentures are very helpful. We can implant these as well, but patients often utilize the kind that you remove and clean each day.Crowns/Bridges
Crowns and bridges can also improve imperfections such as damaged or missing teeth. They look like normal teeth and serve to prevent tooth loss.Root Canals
For a difficult tooth infection, we can do root canals, which involve extracting the tooth’s nerve and pulp before cleaning and sealing the rest of the tooth.Porcelain Fillings
Porcelain is a nice material that allows us to replace older fillings, treat smaller cavities, and prevent them from worsening.Regular Examinations
It’s very useful for patients to receive examinations periodically. We have all the latest dental equipment like X-rays that allow us to find and diagnose problems before they become more serious.
This is just a small glance at what Dr. Skopp is capable of treating his patients with the best possible preventative, cosmetic, and restorative dental care.
Family & Child General Dentistry
We wish to emphasize the fact that our dental services are for everyone: adults and children alike. Our staff of trained dental technicians not only treat patients and do cleanings, but we deliver full comprehensive customer service. This includes coaching young children on developing good oral hygiene practices.
Dr. Skopp’s office does not rush to perform invasive procedures or sedation dentistry if a simpler solution can take care of the problem. We know that visiting the dentist’s office can be an anxious experience for children, therefore we always make their comfort a high priority.
