Restorative Dentist in Edison, NJ
Sometimes a basic preventive dentistry service is all your smile needs to stay healthy. But at other times, and especially as we age, it may be that we can only get what we need from a more advanced restorative dentistry service. Restorative services like the ones you'll find at Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld's Edison dental office are designed to improve your smile's functionality, health, and appearance, not to mention your confidence in your own smile.
Root Canal Therapy
Despite the differences in each service, the goal of improving your oral health is the same.
An infected tooth - or a tooth in danger of becoming infected - can be treated with a single-visit root canal. Using modern tools and techniques, Dr. Resnick or Dr. Rosenfeld will remove the infected inner pulp from your tooth, fill it with an inert substance, and seal it. In the past, a complete root canal procedure could have taken multiple visits to finish. But today, with our Edison office's modern tools, we can complete your root canal therapy comfortably in just a single visit.
Dental Implants and Dentures
Dental implants and dentures are designed to meet a very different restorative dentistry need - missing teeth. Traditional dentures come in two varieties: partial and full dentures. Partials replace a few missing teeth and are held in place by clasps or brackets. Full dentures replace an entire row of top or bottom teeth and are held in place by natural suction or a denture adhesive.
For patients who qualify, partial and full dentures can also be secured by dental implants. The difference between dentures secured by dental implants and those secured by traditional means is that implant-supported dentures replace more than just your missing teeth - they also replace your missing roots.
Why is that important? Because not only do roots anchor teeth, they stimulate bone growth in the jaw, keeping it strong and healthy over the years. Dental implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal, and are designed to act like prosthetic roots by anchoring replacement teeth and stimulating the jaw, permanently restoring your smile's appearance and functionality.
