Frequently Asked Questions
How much does restorative dentistry cost?
There are many different procedures that fall under the umbrella of restorative dentistry, each with its own price range. If you have dental insurance, it’s very likely that your restorative treatment will be at least partially covered by your plan. We will provide you with a cost estimate prior to treatment.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
Getting a crown is a two-step process. Having your tooth prepared for the crown is similar to the procedure used for a dental filling, but more of the tooth structure is removed. During this step, your tooth and the tissue surrounding it will be numbed with a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any discomfort while we work. The second step in the process is the placement of the crown; this does not cause any pain.
Do dental bridges feel normal?
Most patients have an adjustment period when getting used to a new bridge. If you’re used to the feel of natural teeth, having a bridge may not feel “normal” for some time, and if you’re used to not having teeth in that part of the mouth, the bridge will also feel strange at first. You will quickly get used to the feeling, though, and the dental bridge will become your new normal.
How long does a dental implant last?
The dental implants themselves are meant to last a lifetime once osseointegration (the fusing together of your jawbone and the implants) has occurred. The restorations attached to your implants may need replacement at some point, but because dental implants provide them with stable support, they need replacement less often than traditional restorations.
What is the alternative to dental implants?
If you decide against dental implants, your options are to get a bridge, a full or partial denture, or to do nothing at all. Of the three, a dental bridge is the next best solution—they offer more stability than dentures and feel more natural. If you’re missing all or most of the teeth on an arch, you may need dentures.
What do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures depends on the type you’re getting and the number of teeth being replaced. Implant-supported full dentures are the most expensive option, while acrylic “flipper” partial dentures are the most affordable. We’ll go over the different options and costs during your consultation.
Are dental sealants safe for my child?
Dental sealants are a BPA-free coating that fills in crevices on teeth where plaque can build up and cavities can form. The procedure is simple, quick, and painless and the material itself is perfectly safe.
How much does sedation dentistry cost?
The cost of sedation dentistry in Rutherford, NJ depends on the type of sedation you choose to receive. Nitrous oxide is the least expensive sedation option, while IV sedation is the most costly. Your insurance may cover some of the sedation cost.
