Most of our patients know how their whole body health effects their teeth. Certain foods can be detrimental – more sugar means higher risk for cavities, dark foods and drinks may lead to staining, and acidic foods weaken the enamel. Certain health conditions lead to reduced saliva production and chronic dry mouth. However, many patients aren’t aware of how their oral health and hygiene effects their body. At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS, we believe it’s essential for patients to be educated about all of the ways oral health and whole body health intersect. Contact our friendly Edison dental team to schedule a checkup today. Our knowledgeable dentists and team members will be happy to walk you through the most effective oral hygiene practices to ensure your optimal oral and overall health.

Here at Resnick and Rosenfeld, DDS, our team understands and empathizes with how crippling this fear can be; however, it’s important for patients in Edison and beyond to maintain regular check-ups with our office so that they can receive the crucial oral health care they need to keep their smile happy and healthy. After all, if left untreated for too longer, dental problems can get out of hand and end up requiring even more time and money to fix than before. So what can you do to overcome your dental anxiety? Thankfully, Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld offer a solution: nitrous oxide. With this effective sedation dentistry method, we can help take the edge off of your negative feelings, allowing you to feel comfortable and content as we do all the heavy lifting.
How does nitrous oxide work?
It’s simple – once you’ve settled into your comfy seat, we’ll administer nitrous oxide through a mask that fits over your nose, and very quickly, you’ll begin to experience feelings of comfort, warmth, and even maybe euphoria.

Unlike other sedation dentistry methods, nitrous oxide has the distinct advantage of possessing effects that wear off in a matter of minutes.
