General dentistry can be divided up into two different parts: preventive and restorative.
The best type of dentistry protects your natural teeth. Although we have many advanced restorative technologies, none of them can equal the durability of your natural teeth. That’s why our dentists emphasize preventive dentistry first and always to help you maintain your natural teeth for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Preventive dentistry also helps protect your overall health. Your mouth is the gateway to your body, and if it is affected by disease, it can impact your overall health. Gum disease is a chronic infection that damages your health, and unhealthy teeth can make it hard for you to enjoy a healthy and varied diet.
Our dentists employ restorative dentistry when your teeth are damaged. Teeth can be damaged by tooth decay, erosion, or trauma. Tooth decay is caused by oral bacteria that secrete acid that attacks your tooth enamel. It leads to cavities and tooth infections.
Erosion is caused by acids introduced into your mouth, such as acidic foods, acidic drinks, and stomach acids. It can attack many of your teeth simultaneously, wearing them away in many places, causing them to look discolored and making them vulnerable to cracking and chipping.
Tooth trauma can be acute, caused by falls, accidents, and violence. Or it can be more chronic, related to an imbalanced bite that continually stresses your teeth, causing wear and eventually breakage.
We also offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the appearance of your smile, including:
These procedures can be combined to correct virtually any complaint you may have about the appearance of your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry recognizes that having an attractive smile isn’t really a luxury or a bonus, it’s an essential characteristic of having healthy and functional teeth. You depend on your smile many times a day to help you navigate social situations. From saying hello to closing a deal to kissing goodnight, you depend on your smile to represent you. Before that first hello and after that last goodbye, your smile has a lot to say, and you want to make sure it’s saying the right things.
An attractive smile says you’re healthy, successful, kind, understanding, and intelligent. An unattractive smile can say the opposite.
Because so many aspects of healthy teeth and beautiful teeth enhance one another, we encourage preventive and reconstructive dentistry that supports the appearance of your smile.
Some kinds of dentistry require special training and equipment, and can only be performed by the most elite dentists. We offer these procedures through our partnership with River Edge Dental. This includes:
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from chipped and cracked teeth to jaw pain, headaches, ringing in the ears, vertigo, and more. TMJ treatment identifies when your bite is the cause of these symptoms and restores a healthy bite position that can reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Many people think snoring is just a nuisance, but it can be a warning sign of sleep apnea, a potentially deadly condition that increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer among other serious health conditions. Snoring treatment can give you and your spouse a peaceful night’s rest, and sleep apnea treatment can save your life.
Functional appliances are a step beyond usual orthodontics. Not only do their straighten your teeth, they can reshape your jaws to improve your facial appearance and the function of your bite.
