Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings
Semi-annual dental exams represent the first line of defense against cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. They also allow dentists to discover oral cancer before it metastasizes.
Cleanings eliminate the plaque and tartar that can build up on your teeth despite the best oral hygiene practices. Not only do regular cleanings reveal bright, white enamel, but they also help prevent many dental problems.
Fluoride treatment represents a quick and easy way to prevent cavities. As a simple form of pain-free dental care, fluoride takes only a few minutes to apply and provides months of added protection against tooth decay. However, you will need to avoid brushing, drinking, or eating for 30 minutes following your fluoride treatment.
Fillings serve as one of the most common dental services in New Jersey. Even with regular checkups and flawless dental hygiene regimens, cavities can still occur. When they do, we can provide fillings using a range of different materials, including:
- Composite resin
- Silver amalgam
- Glass ionomer
- Resin ionomer
For most patients, a root canal represents the most dreaded dental treatment. However, advances in anesthetics have made the process much more comfortable. While no patient likes to hear that tooth decay has reached the pulp of a tooth, root canals often serve as the only method for preserving a tooth at this stage and avoiding an extraction.
Dental crowns remain one of the most versatile dental services in New Jersey. While most patients think of dental crowns as the final step in a root canal procedure, crowns serve a variety of other purposes as well. Our dentists use dental crowns for:
- Dental implants
- Broken teeth
- Underdeveloped teeth
- Worn teeth
In general, tooth bonding involves using tooth-colored material to restore teeth to their original size and shape. While bonding material often sees use in dental fillings, it proves useful for other applications as well, such as:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
Our dentists may suggest the use of dental sealants in several situations. Sealants are especially helpful for children who may not demonstrate the best brushing and flossing techniques. However, they also serve a useful purpose in adults who have deep crevices between their teeth or on the crowns of their molars and premolars.
For patients who want a perfect smile but don’t want to undergo lengthy, involved procedures, veneers present an enticing solution. Using a thin shield of porcelain or composite resin, our dentists can fully reshape your teeth, covering damage, stains, and more. We can place veneers in as few as two office visits.
Our professionals will do everything possible to save your tooth, but in some cases, severe decay or damage can lead to the need for removal to prevent infection or damage to surrounding teeth. We’ll ensure that your extraction is as painless as possible.
Dental implants have exploded in popularity during the last few decades. As a highly involved process, the placement of dental implants requires surgery, a healing period, and the installation of dental crowns onto the implants.
Dental bridges are one solution to replace missing teeth. Permanently affixed to the back of your existing teeth, this dental apparatus bridges the gap with wire and one or more false teeth.
Most patients understand the purpose of dentures. They serve as false teeth that you can insert and remove each day. At Kids & Family Dentistry, we provide both partial and full dentures.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Most people need their wisdom teeth extracted at some point, as they often either don’t have room to surface or do so at the wrong angle. If not left unaddressed, wisdom teeth can impact rear molars, causing significant damage, including cracks.
Mouthguards and Nightguards
We supply sports mouthguards and nightguards. Mouthguards protect the teeth of athletes competing in contact sports. Nightguards protect a patient’s teeth from excessive grinding during sleep.
