What we offer
Our dentists at 1311 Jackson Ave Dental are dedicated to providing a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth. Your dental consultation in Long Island City will lead to a treatment plan that is designed and tailored to your unique needs. Your dental care with us will be one of a kind.
At our practice, we offer three different types of consultations.
A thorough consultation with our dentists is actually just another name for a dental check up. During the visit, we will take x-rays, do the exam, clean your teeth, and answer any questions you may have.
Alternatively, you may not need a comprehensive evaluation if your last check up was recent but you have a specific focused problem. A limited consultation is when you want to focus on one particular dental problem.
Perhaps you went to another dental office and they recommended to you a treatment plan. You're not sure if that is the right decision and you want someone to take a second look at it. One of our dentist in Long island City can give you a second opinion.
We also have AI dental software that provides second opinions via Pearl AI.

Gums that bleed easily when you brush, floss, or while spitting may be indicative of gum disease.

A chipped tooth or filling should be addressed because it can grow to become a bigger problem.
Your teeth feel extremely sensitive. Even mildly cold water will hurt them. They were never this way but started happening in recently, what could be wrong? The gums also look receded.
Occasional tooth pain that comes and goes. Sometimes it even throbs and wakes you up in the middle of the night.
There is swelling present in your mouth and sometimes you even see pus come out. There is a gum boil that looks like a pimple on the gums. Are you thinking you have a dental abscess?
