Preventative Dental Care for Lasting Oral Health
Brushing, flossing, and following a healthy diet are excellent ways to keep the teeth and gums strong and healthy. Professional cleanings are just as important as a good daily oral hygiene regimen. Visit our Boston office twice a year to maintain great oral health.
Preventative fluoride treatments are an effective way to protect against tooth decay. Though fluoride is found in public water supplies, supplements, and toothpaste, direct application of fluoride by a dentist can provide even greater dental health benefits.
Oral Cancer Screening
The risk of oral cancer can increase with the use of alcohol, tobacco, and frequent sun exposure. Every exam includes an oral cancer screening, which allows us to look for signs of cancerous or precancerous growths. Early detection can lead to better outcomes.
State-of-the-Art Dentistry That Puts Patients First
At our Boston office, we are proud to offer some of the most advanced dental technology available. These tools ensure that our patients receive the best possible care during their appointments. Digital impressions, 3-D x-rays, and other kinds of equipment allow our dentists to provide safe and effective general and cosmetic dentistry.
"Dr. James Stein Is a World-Class Dentist" Five-Star Dentistry in Boston, MA
Dr. James Stein is a world-class dentist. I was referred to him years ago by a renowned periodontist because my mouth's challenges require the expertise of a highly trained, innovative, and meticulous professional. For nearly three decades, Dr. Stein has provided me and my family with superior care. The emergency temporary bonding that he did on my high school daughter's badly chipped front tooth lasted for eleven years. Her dentist in Maryland, where she now lives, was impressed with Dr. Stein's "temporary" treatment as well as with his superbly crafted veneers. Dr. Stein has also transformed my dysfunctional bite and teeth. My mouth is healthy, and I am proud of my beautiful smile. If you want the best dentist, become his patient.View On Google

She visited a few doctors around here and no one was able to screw it back to implant without destroying the crown. Finally, she had been recommend to Dr. James Stein, who had all the tools and skills to fix the problem easily. Thanks, Dr. James!View On Google

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause swollen gums, jaw pain, and tenderness. Dr. Stein can perform wisdom tooth extraction. This common and relatively simple outpatient procedure relieves discomfort and improves long-term dental health.
Constantly grinding or clenching your teeth (bruxism) damages enamel, weakens inner tooth structure, and leads to jaw joint pain. Our dentists offer teeth grinding therapy and custom mouth guards to protect the teeth and alleviate discomfort.
We can implement a variety of treatments to remedy temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Treatment options includes prescription pain medication, physical therapy, and bite splints to help patients bite and chew comfortably.
At our Boston dentistry practice, we can address obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition caused by the soft tissues in the back of the throat blocking the airways. Sleep dentistry treats the stress, fatigue, and irritability associated with OSA.
Bone grafting restores a patient's jawbone density following gum disease, tooth loss, or facial trauma. It is often a prerequisite procedure for dental implants, which require sufficient bone tissue in order to fully integrate into the jaw. During a visit to our general dentistry practice, we can determine if you need a bone graft before having dental implants placed.
Gum recession can cause the tooth roots to become exposed, resulting in tooth sensitivity and increased risk of tooth loss. Soft-tissue grafting can protect the exposed roots while also offering cosmetic dentistry benefits.
