Gum disease is a common occurrence in people of all ages, however, it’s typically seen in adults over the age of 30. Gum disease is a serious condition that requires treatment or the progression of the disease can eventually lead to tooth, gum, and bone loss.

As a professional dentist, we offer treatment for gum disease in Edison to help you stop the damage before it progresses.

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gum tissue afflicting millions of adults throughout the US. Untreated, periodontitis leads to gum and bone recession and tooth loss, impacting systemic health, too. Edison, NJ periodontal therapy through Resnick and Rosenfeld DDS LLC treats gums without surgery, microscopically monitoring the bacteria which lead to this serious oral health problem.
The prestigious Mayo Clinic says that there are 3 million cases of periodontal or gum disease diagnosed each year in the US. This oral infection leads to recession of gum tissue and even underlying jaw bone, and when left to its own devices, periodontal disease causes tooth loss.
It can, however, be successfully treated, many times without surgery, through simple tooth and root scaling and other non-invasive techniques such as those used by Steven J. Resnick DDS FAES and David S. Rosenfeld DDS. (more…)

When you are considering the alternatives available for tooth replacement, you have more than one option. You could choose a partial or full denture or crown and bridgework. Dentists agree, however, the most lifelike alternative is a dental implant. With a dental implant, Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld of Resnick & Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, replace both the root and crown of a missing tooth. By doing so, you have a replacement that looks like a natural tooth and offers the same stability.
People have missing teeth for any number of different reasons, which may include severe tooth decay, gum disease, injury, a failed root canal, abnormal wear and tear or congenital defects. The importance of replacing missing teeth cannot be overstated, not only from the standpoint of maintaining good oral health, but overall health, too. Just one missing tooth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, shifting teeth and the loss of other teeth. Moreover, missing teeth can hinder people’s ability to consume healthy diets, and they may even be reluctant to smile and laugh knowing that others will see that they have teeth that are missing.
Dental Implants: The Lifelike Solution
Once Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld determines that you’re a qualified candidate for dental implants, then you’re on your way to having a full smile again. Having a dental implant is actually a two-step process. First, one of our dentists will surgically implant a small titanium post in your jaw where you previously had a tooth root. This biocompatible post and the surrounding bone tissue fuse together as you heal, thereby creating a foundation that mimics the one that existed with your natural tooth root and jawbone. Moreover, the post stimulates new bone tissue growth, making bone deterioration far less likely.
Once you’ve completely healed and the post and bone have had time to fuse sufficiently, you’ll return to Resnick & Rosenfeld where one of the dentists will attach a porcelain crown to the post. With this in place, you have a tooth replacement that looks and functions like a real tooth.

If you have one or more missing teeth, then you know what difficulties that can generate. You might not be eating a healthy and balanced diet, because you are unable to chew certain foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables. You may be reluctant to smile and speaking might be more difficult with even one missing tooth. If this is you, then consider dental implants. Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld of Resnick & Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, are eminently qualified to restore your smile, your health and your confidence with dental implants.
People lose teeth for a number of different reasons, including:
- Traumatic injury
- Extensive tooth decay
- Advanced gum disease, or periodontitis
- The failure of a root canal
- Excessive wear and tear, possibly because of teeth grinding
- Congenital defects
Regardless of the cause, replacing missing teeth is imperative in order to restore oral health and prevent possible consequences to a patient’s overall health.
Dental Implants Step-by-Step
When you come to Resnick & Rosenfeld for dental implants, one of our dentists will first examine your teeth and gums, as well as evaluate the density of your jawbone. If we determine that dental implants are a good option for you, then the procedure begins with Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld performing a minor surgery to implant a small titanium post in the bone beneath the open socket of your missing tooth. Over the next few months as you heal, the post and surrounding bone tissue will fuse together in a process called osseointegration. In this way, the post becomes anchored into the bone much like an actual tooth root.
Once healed, you’ll return to the office to have an abutment and dental crown cemented to the post. The result is a prosthetic tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

Over the past decade, dental implants have essentially transformed the way dentists offer their patients restorative care. We can now replace missing teeth in a way that looks and feels completely natural, allowing patients to fully enjoy the benefits of a complete set of teeth and a brilliant smile. For patients who wear dentures, dental implants offer a unique solution to uncomfortable prosthetics and the embarrassment of slipping: implant-supported dentures. At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ, Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld offer a comprehensive menu of restorative solutions, including implant-supported dentures.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
While conventional dentures are a suitable fit for some patients, they aren’t the ideal solution for everyone. Relying upon a denture adhesive can become tedious, particularly when dentures slip and slide in the mouth at unexpected times. When you are speaking in public or having a bite to eat with friends, you don’t want to have to worry about your teeth moving or making clicking sounds in your mouth. That’s where implant-supported dentures come in.
First, dental implants are placed within the bone and gum tissue to serve as sturdy anchors for your custom dentures. These titanium posts secure your dentures in your mouth firmly but comfortably, effectively replacing an entire arch of missing teeth. You can feel free to eat what you like, speak confidently, and smile openly, knowing that your teeth look great and won’t budge a bit. They look and feel just like your natural teeth!

Root canal therapy has garnered a rather negative reputation over the years, eliciting thoughts of immense pain and numerous costly procedures. Fortunately, modern technology makes it possible for Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld to perform this treatment in a way that minimizes discomfort, preserves more of your natural tooth, and takes less time than ever before. Root canal treatment at Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ eliminates pain and stops infection before it can cause further damage.
How Do I Know If I Need Root Canal Therapy?
When decay in a tooth spreads down to the sensitive pulp within the root, root canal therapy is typically recommended. This procedure involves the elimination of bacteria and diseased tissue, the filling of the resultant cavity, and the capping of the tooth with a durable, protective crown. Root canal therapy, when performed in a timely manner, can help to avoid the need for extraction later.
While the necessity for root canal therapy can only be determined by a qualified oral healthcare professional, there are some symptoms that you should be aware of at home. Persistent toothaches, for example, should never be ignored, as pain in the tooth, gums, or jaw may indicate a number of problems, including abscesses. If you notice that a tooth has become noticeably discolored or begins to take on a dull gray appearance, call Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld to schedule an appointment for immediate assessment.
Healthy Teeth, Healthy Life
Did you know that the health of your teeth and gums directly impacts your physical wellness overall? Seeking out root canal therapy before further damage occurs can not only help you preserve your natural teeth, but lower your risk for other potentially debilitating diseases in the future. Contact our office in Edison, NJ to schedule your appointment today. Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld look forward to becoming your trusted partners in lifelong oral health, and proudly serve patients from throughout Edison, Colonia, Scotch Plains, Plainfield, Clark, Westfield, and more.

Having one or more missing teeth isn’t only physically uncomfortable and potentially embarrassing in social settings; allowing lost teeth to remain as such can lead to a number of detrimental conditions like periodontitis and the abnormal drifting of surrounding teeth. At Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, we care about your happiness as much as we do with your overall oral health. We want to show you how dental implants can change your life by replacing missing teeth permanently.
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
The main reason that dental implants are generally a superior choice over other options is that they’re incredibly durable, versatile, long-lasting and don’t require any specialized care. Unlike many other restorative dental procedures – including crowns, dentures and bridges – dental implants are more like natural teeth in that they are actually attached to your jaw bone. A titanium post is inserted into the bone tissue, bone that will eventually come to fuse around the implant as it would a tooth’s root. The carefully crafted crown that is then placed on top of the post looks and feels like a natural tooth; it is even matched to to suit the color of the existing teeth surrounding it. No one will ever be able to tell that it’s not your own tooth!
Reclaim Your Beautiful Smile
If you’ve ever felt that having missing teeth is just something you have to learn to live with, we encourage you to contact our Edison, NJ to explore your options for tooth replacement with dental implants. Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld proudly serve patients from the areas of Scotch Plains, Colonia, Plainfield, Clark, Westfield and beyond.
