Comprehensive Dental Exams
While brushing and flossing are great ways to maintain your smile, it’s very important to see an experienced dentist regularly.
At Signature Smile, it’s our goal to offer the latest and safest in dental technologies to all of our patients. This is why Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan use digital X-rays during examinations.
Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan recommend coming in to our Brooklyn Heights office at least twice a year for standard dental cleanings and checkups.
Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection and management of precancerous lesions are crucial to oral cancer prevention. Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan encourage all of our Brooklyn Heights neighbors to ask about oral cancer screenings.
Dental sealant is a type of resin material that is applied to chewing surfaces on the back teeth, which are at a higher risk of decay than others. Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan recommend sealants to all of our Brooklyn Heights patients, particularly for children.
A wise choice for athletes who want protect their smiles during sporting events, Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan can custom-fit a mouth guard to a patient’s teeth perfectly. Having a mouth guard fitted by a dentist offers a more comfortable and effective option than the “boil and bite” mouth guards found at the store.
Dr. Tolchinsky and Dr. Trogan can provide a significant boost to your teeth’s overall defenses with regular fluoride treatments.
