This is by far the best dentist in Suffolk County. The care Dr. Baum gave to my wife was absolutely fabulous. She needed a lot of work from her prior dentist redone. Luckily, this time everything was done properly and she feels and looks wonderful now. The office is extremely modern and everyone there went the extra mile to make her comfortable each visit. I am so glad we found this dentist! -michael and patricia h.

first of all, I am someone who hates going to the dentist. But Dr. Baum makes it so easy, I really can't complain any more. I've been a patient for 3 years and will be going for many more. He is painless, the staff is super friendly and everything they've done for me (root canal, crown and several fillings) all came out great.

This office is great. No one else was willing to help me with my toothache. They saw me right away and did a great job fixing my infection. Very painless, clean office, and very modern. I thank them for helping me!

I finally found a dentist who does great work! I had to have some old work corrected and redone and I wish I had found Dr Baum first! He and his staff did a fabulous job and treated me so well each time, thank you.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
