In addition to restorative and cosmetic care, Dr. Peter D. Gold focuses on family dentistry, meeting the dental needs of patients of all ages, from children to senior citizens. With an emphasis on good oral health, he offers all patients a full examination of their teeth and gums, including the use of x-rays and screening for oral cancer.
With his younger patients, Dr. Gold stresses good oral hygiene and developing good habits-habits that will last all of their lives-to avoid cavities and other oral problems in the years to come. In teens and adults, he addresses orthodontic problems that are easily corrected with metal braces or Invisalign®. Adult patients are candidates for standard treatments as well as cosmetic treatments, from porcelain veneers to teeth whitening. For his senior citizen patients, Dr. Gold focuses on their periodontal care as well as primary concerns including advanced wear, dry mouth, the effects of medications on dental health, dentures and dental crowns. Good oral hygiene, diet and prevention are stressed for patients of all ages.
