Many of our patients that come to us tell us that they can't eat the foods that they love or things that they used to be able to. Sometimes it's from missing teeth, sometimes it's from loose teeth, from dental disease, periodontal disease. Sometimes it's neglect, sometimes it's just unfortunately the reality is that's the situation they had when they were growing up, whether they had bad teeth growing up, whether their parents couldn't help them, whatever the situation was.
There's new technology with dental implants to allow people to have teeth that don't come out, teeth that are firm. You can eat anything you want and it's really lifechanging for a lot of people. We've been able to help a lot of people in recent years who really thought there was no help and had gone to other offices and they were told, “There's no help for you.“ Well, there is help and we'd like to help show you what it can be.
Dr. Mitchel L. Friedman, Dr. Aparna Menon, and our professional team offer several options to rejuvenate your oral function right here at our Lincroft, NJ dentist office.
Your Restorative Dentistry Options
So we can provide customized solutions for your particular dental issue, we offer an array of treatments to repair or replace your damaged or missing teeth. To ensure your comfort, we will numb your mouth if there is any chance of pain. We also offer dental sedation options to relieve dental anxiety.
One of the most natural-feeling restorative options available is dental implants, which can be restored with:
- Dental crowns (created here in our office during your appointment with the help of CEREC technology)
- Dental bridges
- Full-mouth reconstruction options, like dentures
We also offer traditional versions of all of the dental implant restoration options listed above.
If you have a cavity, we can relieve your pain and restore your tooth to a healthy state using a tooth-colored filling that will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Or, if tooth decay has penetrated the enamel of your teeth and started affecting the soft tissue and nerves within, we can perform a gentle root canal to save your tooth.
We’ll always do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth. But if a tooth is beyond repair, we may recommend an extraction to prevent the problem from affecting your surrounding teeth and oral health. Then, we’ll discuss your tooth replacement options with you! It’s important to replace missing teeth so your remaining teeth do not experience undue stress.
