What are dental exams?
Attending yearly oral evaluations allows you to take a preemptive position to sustain the health of your smile. An annual dental exam at 286 Madison Dental diagnoses tooth decay, gum disease, cancer of the mouth, and different issues that may be influencing your dental and overall health. Typically conducted at regular teeth cleaning visits, standard exams let our team assess the teeth, gum line, arch alignment, jaw joints, and other oral needs. These exams can be the best path to identify and treat dental disorders immediately. Come in for a comprehensive dental examination at our New York, NY practice to maintain the health and visual appeal of your smile.
What are oral cancer screenings?
Reportedly, 50,000 people in this country are affected by oral cancer every year. However, this disorder may be incredibly manageable if identified promptly. Oral cancer is a quickly expanding growth of cells that might occur anywhere inside or around the oral cavity, such as on the mouth, mid-face, tongue, salivary glands, jawbone, and neck, along with additional oral areas. Our dental team performs an oral cancer screening during each comprehensive exam to look for nonmalignant tumors, cancerous growths, or other developments. A few of the usual indications of oral tumors include abrasions, bumps, convex or textured areas, and discolored patches of tissue. Any spots of concern could be excised and biopsied, or we could refer you to a physician for more advanced treatment.
Dental Exam Reviews
High quality, comprehensive dental care. Great team of doctors, hygienists, and assistants. Can’t go wrong here.
so friendly, never have to wait for my turn, and they really pay attention to preventative care.
Dr. Shmuely is AMAZING. After a referral from my sister (who loves him too), Dr. Schmuely made time available to see me, even with short notice, due to a time conflict with my dentist in SF. I’m so glad it worked out this way because I received the best dental care! Dr. Shmuely took his time with my procedures, explained everything and accommodated me in every way. His staff is amazing too, especially his partner. You won’t find a better practice!
I was a loyal 4 year patient and due to a change of jobs which resulted in a change of insurance I was unable to continue with Dr. Shmuely. After 3 years of mediocre dental care and a new insurance I returned back to genuine patient care and am happy to return. Dr.Shmuely knows his patients and is not just a doctor, he cares and gives you the best advice and tips for your care and also great advice on life!
Dr. Shmuely has become like family to my family! We are very appreciative of the "wholistic" dental care approach of Dr. Shmuely and his office: Iggly their dental assistant; dental hygienist Daniella & all their colleagues: Specifically Talia \ Tamar & other front office colleagues who know how to deal with insurance claims which to me is another language; however they work with you and explain everything. This wholistic approach has restored my dental health beyond a shadow of doubt! Their dental practice by being disciplined and sticking to a solid dental health plan has helped transform my dental health care to: 1) One in which my gums are much healthier 2) My older crowns are slowly but surely being replaced mitigating infection from decay buildup 3) All procedures are fully explained which to me is important 4) Lastly having quarterly dental hygienist cleanings. In additional to this very professional dental experience their practice also focuses on the what I call humanistic approach: I commented to Dr. Shmuely: 1) That it is such a nice touch for his dental practice to send out a congratulations happy birthday recognition. It exemplifies the extra patient relationship they build with their patients. This also translates into excellent dental care by sticking to the basics of doing the right thing! 2) In addition the office takes every COVID 19 precaution possible. 3) I feel it is also a great testimonial that Dr. Shmuely is a part time professor at NYU dental school. One of the premiere dental schools in our nation. This tells me he remains on the cutting edge state of the art dental practices \ procedures and technologies. I continue to say: one cannot speak more highly of the prompt & professional treatment we receive from Dr. Shmuely. From the front desk staff greeting to the x-ray technician and working with Dr. Shmuely. I particularly liked the sound step by step treatment plans they both put together for me. They clearly communicated as well as addressed all my questions and concerns. Thank you again, Dr. Shmuely along with your staff and believe it or not I am looking forward to continuing my dental care. Regards, Bruce & Marta Vapnitsky

Who should get dental exams?
Individuals of all ages, need to get oral checkups at least once yearly for general care. Dental exams might also be conducted in our New York City dental practice to evaluate tooth discomfort, injury, or further concerns that can form between exams. Gum disease, the primary cause of missing teeth and decay, may not cause clear signs to manifest until the more advanced stages. When dental issues are diagnosed right away, our staff can typically provide less intensive procedures for care.
The ADA (also known as the American Dental Association) states that all young patients should see a dental care provider before they are one year old. To help children at this early age, we can help with various issues (such as teething and thumb-sucking) and aid you in cleaning your young one's teeth and gum tissues as their jaws evolve. Regular comprehensive dental exams can help establish effective oral practices and enable them to attain bright smiles for a lifetime.
What should I expect during my visit?
Dental exams at 286 Madison Dental get started with an overview of your dental history. A team member might also talk about any health concerns or aesthetic smile goals you have to discover more about your overall dental wellness. During certain routine exams, our dental team could offer a set of detailed x-rays to grant us greater knowledge of the health of your teeth and bone tissues. We could then screen for oral cancer, check the balance of your arches and temporomandibular joints, and examine your teeth for decay and the fit of any dental appliances. A gum exam can also be conducted to find possible spots of periodontal disease.

What happens after a dental exam?
Good oral hygiene habits (like routine toothbrushing after meals and flossing at least once daily) may help reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. Our team performs routine oral exams at least once per year, generally during a patient's biannual teeth cleaning appointments; however, we could suggest exams more often for patients with severe oral wellness concerns. To meet your unique smile goals, the team performs many comprehensive treatments, such as state-of-the-art dental fillings, dentures, and porcelain veneers. If needed, our staff will help you set up check-in sessions.
