Frequently Asked Questions

Which is better, braces or Invisalign?

Braces and Invisalign are both effective orthodontic treatment options, but most patients in Paramus, NJ prefer the Invisalign system because its clear aligners are discreet, comfortable, and convenient. There are some complex cases in which braces are a better solution, but most orthodontic issues can now be corrected with Invisalign.

Why do I need a crown instead of a filling?

Crowns are used when there is too much decay for a filling to repair. Crowns do a better job restoring and strengthening the structure of a damaged tooth, while fillings are more suited to filling in smaller holes.

Do dental bridges damage teeth?

Most bridges damage the abutment teeth that are used to support the bridge. In a traditional bridge, the adjacent teeth are filed down and capped with crowns for support; a cantilever bridge only places one crown on an adjacent tooth, but this tooth is more prone to damage because there is more stress on it. Even a Maryland bridge, which bonds a support structure to the backs of adjacent teeth, can leave your teeth susceptible to damage. The only type of bridge that doesn’t do damage to the adjacent healthy teeth is an implant-supported bridge.

Why are dental implants so expensive?

There’s simply more involved in a dental implant procedure than for bridges or dentures. The cost involves multiple office visits, extensive imaging, surgery, materials, one or more restorations, anesthesia and/or sedation, and sometimes preliminary procedures like bone grafting. That said, most patients find the added expense worth it in order to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime.

How do I prepare for dental implants?

We’ll provide you with detailed instructions prior to your procedure. If you’re being sedated for your dental implant placement, there may be restrictions on what you can eat and drink, depending on the type of sedation being used.

Are dentures better than they used to be?

Absolutely. As technology and materials advance, dentures are better than ever before, with a more realistic look and feel. Implant-supported dentures are so realistic that many patients forget that they have them!

How do I know if my child has a cavity?

Your child will likely complain of sensitivity and pain when biting or when the tooth is exposed to sweet, hot, or cold sensations. When you look at the tooth, you will see a brown spot or even a hole where decay has damaged the tooth structure.

Can you be put to sleep for dental work?

We offer IV sedation; while this is a conscious form of sedation (as opposed to general anesthesia, which is what you’re given for surgery in a hospital), you’ll feel as if you’re sleeping through your procedure and when it’s over, you’ll have no memory of it.
