Your natural teeth are priceless, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. That’s why Dr. Silver and the rest of our Midtown team take conservation very seriously and practice minimally invasive care. Dr. Silver drills on teeth far less than any regular dentist because unnecessary drilling weakens and removes what remains of your healthy tooth structure.We practice the latest techniques and scientific advancements that limit professional intervention and ensure stronger, more wholesome results.

At NY Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry, Dr. Silver offers a precise four-step process when it comes to the common act of treating cavities:
- Air Abrasion – After identifying tooth decay with DIAGNOdent, removing it is necessary before further steps can be taken to treat the damage. With air abrasion, a powerful stream of air clears these areas instead, preserving the maximum amount of remaining tooth structure.
- Ozone Treatment – The application of ozone can effectively destroy remaining bacteria in the area and even reduce sensitivity.
- Remineralization – By applying certain topical solutions to vulnerable areas, Dr. Silver can help your tooth regain its strength in a much more natural way. If we’ve caught the decay early enough, a filling may not even be necessary!
- Bonded Filling – If a filling is necessary, we offer quality materials that bond directly to the tooth and are free of BPA, a controversial chemical that’s been linked to certain illnesses.
