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.

Some things should be yellow. Rubber ducks, lemon pound cake, the morning sun… but your teeth? No. The same can be said for gray and brown — these are colors just don’t want to associate with your teeth. Unfortunately, cup after cup of coffee, long evenings sipping red wine and almost any other delicious thing life has to offer will leave your smile dingy and dirty looking — and that’s certainly not attractive.

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.
