Real Patient Testimonial
I’ve been going to Dr. Auster for – I don’t even know how long – a little after middle school. I grew up near Rockland, and Dr. Auster was our family dentist.
Now I live in Hoboken, and my sister is in Manhattan, and we both come back for our routine hygiene. There’s literally a dentist on every single corner in Manhattan, and I drive an hour and 45 minutes home from work in traffic every time I need to see him. I think that just speaks a ton about how I feel about his work. I even lived in Philly for a few years, and I had to find a dentist. I just kept bouncing around from dentist to dentist. I couldn’t find anyone remotely as amazing as Dr. Auster. There was no one I trusted. The second I came home, I went straight to him. Now I drive home anytime I need anything – routine visits and anything else that’s going on.

The Importance of Preventive Dental Care
We understand that many patients operate on a system where they only visit the dentist when they notice dental pain. As experienced dentists, we can tell you that that approach to dental care will only cause more issues in the future. Taking a proactive approach to dentistry vastly minimizes the number of dental issues you develop, saves time and money, and improves your overall health.
Preventive dental care is designed to address minor dental issues before they advance and help you maintain a healthy, functional smile. Drs. Auster and Tang work diligently to help you understand the importance of preventive dental care and how it can benefit your dental health. We often recommend patients visit our office twice yearly for routine dental visits.
During this time, you will receive a comprehensive dental examination that will thoroughly evaluate three major parts of your smile.
Teeth: Tooth decay can destroy the structure and health of your teeth if left untreated. Patients of any age can develop tooth decay, so it is imperative that all patients undergo thorough screening. To help identify tooth decay, we use the DIAGNOdent laser, a non-invasive device for the early detection of cavities. This technology allows us to cavities that other traditional methods may miss.
Gums: Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Gum disease can negatively impact oral health and overall wellness if left untreated. During your visit, we thoroughly examine the condition of the gums and assess your risk for gum disease to determine if treatment is needed.
Occlusion: One of the leading causes of tooth damage, facial pain, and discomfort is dysfunction in the occlusal system. When your bite is damaged or misaligned, it can lead to many dental issues. For your teeth, gums, joints, and muscles to work to the best of their ability, they must function harmoniously.
General Dentistry FAQs
General dentistry is the foundation of your oral health. Learn more about keeping your smile healthy by reading the answers to these frequently asked questions.
What’s the focus of general dentistry?
General dentistry focuses on maintaining your oral health and keeping your smile healthy. Ideally, quality general dentistry avoids the need for more intensive restorative dentistry treatments. We ensure your smile is properly clean and perform exams to ensure there aren’t hidden problems.
How often do I need to visit the dentist?
If you’re in decent oral health, you should visit the dentist every six months. If you’re currently undergoing Invisalign treatment, you’ll need to come in more often so that we can measure your progress. Patients with gum disease or other serious conditions may have to come into the office more often for proper treatment.
Do I really need to visit the dentist regularly?
Absolutely. Even if you’re brushing and flossing religiously at home, there are certain areas that standard tools don’t reach. Our specialized dental tools clean these hard-to-reach areas. Without regular dental visits, you’re still at high risk for tooth decay and gum disease. We’re also trained to look for the early warning signs of more serious conditions like oral cancer that you may not notice alone.
How can I prevent cavities?
Preventing cavities requires treatment both at home and in the dentist office. You should brush at minimum twice daily and floss at least once daily. Visit the dentist regularly so that we can clean the areas that are harder to treat. Lower the amount of sugar in your diet and acidic foods and drinks. Rinse your mouth with water after every meal if you can’t brush your teeth. This helps remove debris and bacteria.
Should I use a manual or electric toothbrush?
Both types are good options if you’re using them correctly. Both are effective methods of removing plaque from your smile. Some people — particularly those with mobility issues — prefer an electric toothbrush because they’re a little bit easier to maneuver.
What should I do if I have a toothache?
Toothaches are one of the most common dental ailments. They have many different causes, from dental trauma to infection. You must schedule a checkup, and don’t ignore the pain you’re experiencing. Without proper diagnosis, we can’t treat the pain properly, and you can suffer serious consequences.
