Dental concerns can range from a small tooth cavity to complex problems such as missing teeth. Dr. Scott Schwartz offers comprehensive dental services in all aspects of dentistry to address your dental concerns. Dr. Schwartz and the staff of our Croton On Hudson dentist office take a personalized, consultative approach to your dental care, taking the time to understand not only your dental concerns but overall health and personal goals for your smile.
Routine preventive care is the foundation of our dentistry- and a lifetime of good oral health. As your dentist, Dr. Schwartz strives to establish a lasting relationship with you in order to help you maintain your oral health and enjoy the smile you desire. During routine visits we take the time to look for the early signs of disease, treating dental concerns with conservative dentistry that can avoid the development of more complex problems.
Common Dental Concerns
Despite diligent dental care and good oral hygiene, most patients experience a dental concern at some point in their lives. Common concerns can include:
- Tooth decay and cavities
- Bleeding gums
- TMJ disorders
- Worn or damaged teeth
- Tooth pain or increased sensitivity
Dr. Schwartz also offers diagnosis and treatment for sleep apnea and snoring, a health concern that can be effectively treated by a highly trained dentist. Common sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, are caused by collapsing soft tissues at the back of the throat which can be treated with oral appliance therapy.
Dental Anxiety and Your Oral Health
Although not a specific dental concern, fear of the dentist often leads to a range of oral health problems affecting both dental and overall health. Dr. Schwartz works with patients suffering the emotional and health effects of dental anxiety and his warm, compassionate manner can help you to restore a healthy smile.
During a one on one consultation, Dr. Schwartz will take the time to thoroughly explain all aspects of any recommended dentistry to help patients with dental anxiety to understand their oral health and what to expect during treatment. For many, this can alleviate their fears and help them to feel confident and relaxed while visiting with us.

Each room is equipped with big screen tvs, noise canceling headphones as well as the latest Netflix, movies, live tv, and music of your choice.

Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Missing teeth, even just one, can lead to a cascade of dental problems and have a detrimental effect on overall oral health. When a tooth is lost, a chain reaction is set into motion: jaw bone in the area of the lost tooth begins to shrink and affect the bite, periodontal disease can take hold and remaining teeth begin to shift position. Replacing a lost tooth, or teeth, quickly is important for maintaining a healthy, functional smile.
Periodontal, or gum, disease often goes undetected and undiagnosed if you are not visiting with Dr. Schwartz regularly. Unfortunately, most patients do not realize they have gum disease until it has advanced and begun to cause noticeable damage. This can often result in the need for extensive treatment in order to restore dental health and may also have an affect on overall health and well being.
Crooked teeth can be a source of embarrassment when smiling and the underlying cause for a variety of dental problems. Teeth that are misaligned are difficult to brush and floss effectively and can also have a detrimental effect on the bite, leading to TMJ or bite disorders.
Dr. Scott Schwartz offers convenient, comfortable and effective orthodontic treatment with invisible braces. An experienced cosmetic and restorative dentist in Croton On Hudson, Dr. Schwartz has advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of complex dental problems in order to provide patients lasting solutions and functional smiles.
Discolored and stained teeth can lend a more aged appearance and be the cause of embarrassment for many patients. Cosmetic and restorative dentist Dr. Scott Schwartz offers a range of treatment options to brighten your smile and restore a more youthful look with teeth whitening. The professional products we offer will provide results that are safer and superior to over the counter options.
Teeth grinding. also known as bruxism, is a common dental concern and often the symptom of a more complex problem such as a TMJ disorder. Unfortunately, many patients do not realize they are grinding their teeth (or clenching their jaw) until they come in for a visit with Dr. Schwartz or begin to experience painful symptoms and tooth damage.
