Achieve the Brilliantly Flawless Smile of Your Dreams with Porcelain Veneers in Edison, NJ

May 20, 2014

shutterstock_155769509Have you ever looked at a movie star’s perfect smile, white and beautifully balanced, and thought, “Why can’t my teeth look like that?” With today’s advanced technology in the field of cosmetic dentistry, it is actually possible to enjoy a flawless, celebrity-gorgeous smile without extensive, complicated dental procedures. Porcelain veneers from Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ can transform your smile in as few as two visits to our office, giving you the confidence and charisma you want and deserve.

Can Porcelain Veneers Help Me?

A one-on-one consultation with Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld will determine whether porcelain veneers are a good fit for your individual case. If it is decided that this treatment suits your situation, we will take precise measurements of your teeth, as well as impressions of your dentition. These measurements will be used to create custom porcelain veneers that will later be affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth, completely masking common imperfections that may make you feel self-conscious of your smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin, stain-resistant layers of dental porcelain that are custom-made to create an aesthetically pleasing, symmetrically balanced smile. They look and feel completely natural, so no one will ever be able to tell that you’ve had any dental work performed. Flaws and dental imperfections that are easily resolved using porcelain veneers include:

  • Cracks or chips in enamel
  • Mild crookedness or crowding that does not warrant orthodontic treatment for the sake of oral health
  • Teeth that are too small, too pointed, too rounded, or otherwise misshapen
  • Deep staining or yellowing
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Uneven gum line

Schedule Your Consultation Today

If you’d like to discover the difference that cosmetic dentistry solutions like porcelain veneers can make in your life, contact our office in Edison, NJ today and schedule your appointment with Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld. We can’t wait to help you transform your smile into one that you’ll be proud to show off to the world.

Preserve the Health of Your Teeth with Root Canal Therapy in Edison, NJ

May 8, 2014

Shutterstock Mouth PainRoot 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.

Smoking and Your Oral Health: More Serious Than Yellow Teeth and Bad Breath

April 8, 2014

shutterstock_175855586When most people think of tobacco’s effects on the mouth, the first things that come to mind are stained, yellow teeth and breath that resembles the odor of an ashtray. While these are certainly common side effects of smoking cigarettes, there are more serious factors to consider as well. At the family dental practice of Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ, our doctors provide patients with pertinent information about smoking and its effects on overall oral health.

Tobacco’s Effects on Dental Health

In addition to causing yellow stains on enamel and contributing to chronic halitosis, smoking can cause a variety of problems that aren’t necessarily as readily noticeable. Smokers are, for instance, substantially more likely to experience periodontal disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Plaque and tartar build up more quickly on the teeth, further increasing the risk of gum disease. Gum disease comes with its own list of potentially serious complications, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and dementia.

Patients who smoke regularly are also at a higher risk of developing oral cancer and typically experience adverse reactions to any type of oral surgery. Bone density within the jaw is also affected, resulting in teeth that may shit in their sockets and become loose.

Reserve Your Appointment Today

Whether you’re a current smoker and concerned about your oral health, or you’ve succeeded in quitting but still need guidance regarding lingering effects of tobacco, our caring, compassionate team is here to help. Contact our office in Edison, NJ today to schedule your appointment with Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld. We’re always happy to provide our patients with useful tips and information regarding oral health and hygiene, as well as with suggestions and recommendations for cosmetic, restorative, and preventive dentistry. We proudly serve patients from throughout Edison, Scotch Plains, Plainfield, Clark, Westfield, Colonia, and more.

Custom-Made Mouthguards from Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS Help Protect Your Beautiful Smile

March 25, 2014

Shutterstock Mouth Guard Athletic BaseballYou do so much to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong, brushing and flossing regularly and attending routine checkups at your dentist’s office. But are you doing everything you can to protect your oral health? Children, teens, and adults who engage in recreational sports and athletic activities are at a substantially higher risk for dental emergencies, particularly if they’re not properly equipped. At the Edison, NJ office of Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld, active families get the dental protection they need with custom fit athletic mouthguards.

The Importance of Athletic Mouthguards

While wearing a protective oral appliance for games like football, hockey, and rugby may seem like an obviously smart choice, their use during many other physical activities goes largely ignored. The truth is, any sport you pursue presents a risk of oral injury. Common injuries sustained include lacerations to the tongue, gums, lips, and cheeks; dislodged or loosened teeth; and severe contusions to the jaw, face, and head. The American Dental Association recommends that athletic mouthguards be used in many sports and activities, including the following:

  • Baseball and softball
  • Basketball
  • Gymnastics and acrobatics
  • Cycling
  • Hockey
  • Volleyball
  • Weightlifting and wrestling
  • Soccer and football
  • Skateboarding

Fortunately, custom athletic mouthguards from Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS can help protect the delicate tissues and teeth within the entire oral cavity. If you or anyone in your family participates in recreational sports or activities, contact our office today to find out more about how our custom made mouthguards can help protect your smile while you have fun. From our conveniently located office in Edison, NJ, Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld warmly welcome patients from throughout the surrounding areas of Clark, Westfield, Plainfield, Colonia, Scotch Plains, and beyond. We look forward to seeing – and protecting – your smile!

Defending Against Gum Disease at Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ

March 10, 2014

Shutterstock Health Body PerioStatistics show that approximately 80 percent of the American population suffers from some form of gum disease, an oral health condition that can lead to a variety of other health problems when left untreated. At our cutting-edge dental practice in Edison, NJ, Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld protect patients from the unseen dangers of periodontal disease with microscopic monitoring and laser dentistry services.

The Importance of Early Intervention

When a patient’s gums are infected, whether there are symptoms or not, bacteria that reside beneath the gingival tissue can spread to other areas of the body via the bloodstream. If unchecked, this infection can lead to the following conditions:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Fortunately, patients who visit us at Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS can dramatically reduce their risk of developing these serious health issues with periodontal therapy. We utilize only the latest in microscopic monitoring, a gum disease detection and treatment method that is completely non-surgical and proven effective. Our doctors will happily explain the entire process at your appointment in a way that is clear and easy to understand.

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

If you or anyone in your family has noticed any of the common signs of gum disease – or you simply want to ensure that you’re taking a proactive approach to this common oral health condition ­­– contact our office in Edison, NJ today to schedule your appointment with us. Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld look forward to providing you with the latest in periodontal disease detection and treatment. We also happily serve families from nearby communities in Scotch Plains, Plainfield, Clark, Colonia, Westfield, and the surrounding areas. We can’t wait to see your smile!

Replace Missing Teeth for a Great Smile with Dental Implants in Edison, NJ

February 20, 2014

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.

Get Rid of Bad Breath Fast with Tips from the Team at Resnick & Rosenfeld

February 3, 2014

Though it happens to us all at one point or another, bad breath is always embarrassing when it hits. Whether it’s a problem you only deal with after eating certain foods or you’ve noticed that it’s a common occurrence, you want to know how to address it as soon as possible. At Resnick & Rosenfeld in Edison, NJ, our expert team of dentists and hygienists wants to give you the tools you need to banish bad breath once and for all.

Find the Cause, Find the Treatment

For some people, chronic bad breath can signify an underlying health concern that must be assessed by a medical professional. Certain patients with liver problems, for example, may experience an unpleasant odor and taste in their mouth when their liver is unable to sufficiently eliminate toxins in the body. If, however, you know that your bad breath is not caused by a medical issue, there are certain things you can do to keep it at bay. Try the following:

  • Use a tongue scraper. Bacteria tends to accumulate on the tongue, especially in the back near your throat, even when you brush and floss regularly. A tongue scraper can effectively remove the bacterial plaque that hides between your taste buds to quell bad breath.
  • Swish with antibacterial mouthwash every time you brush. This not only helps to kill bacteria that are currently present in your mouth, but may help to defend your teeth and soft tissues from future buildup.
  • Chew sugar-free gums and breath mints. While these only mask the problem of bad breath temporarily, they can help keep you out of embarrassing social situations until you’ve had a chance to address the root problem.
  • Avoid problem foods. Foods like onion, garlic and dairy products are notorious for causing an undesirable odor in the moist environment of the mouth.

If chronic bad breath has caused you social embarrassment one too many times and you’re ready to make a positive change in your life, contact us at our Edison, NJ to see how Drs. Resnick and Rosenfeld can help you. We also proudly serve the areas of Scotch Plains, Colonia, Plainfield, Clark, Westfield and beyond.

Though you may think there is not a solution aside from traditional braces, you are wrong. Our amazing team at Resnick & Rosenfeld is proud to offer Invisalign Clear Braces to our patients!

Invisalign is better than traditional braces because they are virtually invisible on your teeth! There are no wires or brackets involved, leaving your more comfortable and confident in your smile.

Invisalign aligners are made to fit your mouth and your mouth only, and gently straighten your teeth, eliminating a lot of the pain associated with braces. You simply wear one retainer for two weeks, and then move to the next stage!

There are a lot of plusses associated with Invisalign, one of them being better oral health. At any point where you need to eat, drink, brush, or floss, you simply remove the retainer, and then reapply it when you are done. You also will be able to avoid the mouth full of metal you may have been worried about. With Invisalign, you look as natural as ever, doing your job while the braces do theirs. If you have any questions about Invisalign and how it can improve your smile, make an appointment at our office, and we’ll be glad to help!
