They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s why our team at 200th Street Dental take the time to educate our patients on the need for routine cleanings and examinations and how to care for their teeth and gums on a daily basis.
Regular visits to our office mean that potential problems are caught early on, before they become painful and require more costly action. For example, a cavity that is left untreated could eventually cause a tooth to abscess – a condition that usually requires a root canal and a bout of antibiotics.
Routine cleanings help to improve the health of your gums by removing plaque and tartar from your teeth. Left unattended, tartar build-up can lead to gum disease which can cause early tooth loss and infections. Did you know that the same bacteria associated with gum disease is also linked to heart attacks, strokes, and other serious health problems?
At 200th Street Dental, we believe strongly that prevention should begin at the youngest age possible. But it’s never too late to start. Whatever your situation, our goal is to build a comfortable and trusting relationship that will last a lifetime.
At 200th Street Dental, our team is committed to your overall heath by providing regular comprehensive examinations. We do this in order to best create a personalized hygiene/treatment program that is designed specifically for you and your optimum oral health care.
We have the technology and training to do routine check up, in which we search for signs of other health issues such as diabetes or cancer. At 200th Street Dental we are concerned with the details that ensure you the health and vitality necessary for success in all areas of life.

For many years film-based x-rays were the only way for dentists to spot internal tooth decay and other hidden problems.
Not so today. At 200th Street Dental, our digital x-ray system reduces your exposure to radiation by up to 90%, compared to conventional x-rays.
We don’t use film or have to wait for any negatives to develop: with digital x-rays, a small electronic sensor sends a crystal-clear image of your teeth to our computer monitor almost instantly!
Another benefit is that our computer can compare recent digital x-rays with past ones, so it can detect even the slightest changes in the appearance of your teeth. That means problems are caught sooner, when they are easier and less expensive to treat.
Digital x-rays are also better for the environment because, unlike conventional x-rays, they don’t use caustic chemicals that have to be changed and disposed of regularly. Diminishing our ecological footprint is yet another way 200th Street Dental is concerned with the big picture.
