Dental Surgery & More for Jersey City, NJ

Many people hear dental terminology, whether it's from their dentist/staff or a friend who just had some work done. Most have an idea about what it is that they hear, but have more questions, or want to become a little more informed before making a decision regarding general or cosmetic dental treatment. 

This page is designed to inform all of our patients, prospective patients, and the general public in Jersey City, NJ about some of the most commonly performed dental surgery and procedures in our office and what is involved, along with photos/images to better explain the particular service. Below is a detailed list of the services we provide.
Full Mouth X-Rays – this is a series of dental X-rays, digital or hard copy film, showing all the teeth. This includes 14 periapicals and 2 or 4 bitewings. It is also known as a complete series.
Fluoride Treatments – fluoride treatment is a mineral solution applied to teeth that helps strengthen them and prevents cavities. Our office offers both children and (susceptible) adults the option of a 60-second fluoride treatment, either with a concentrated liquid rinse or foam that is placed in a tray for 60 seconds in the patient’s mouth. With either treatment, equally effective, we recommend to abstain from eating, drinking, or rinsing for at least 30 minutes after the fluoride is administered.
Composite Fillings – our office is mercury-free. That is to say we do not place amalgam or silver fillings. We place only tooth-colored, composite fillings and have had great results and satisfaction from these esthetic and durable fillings. 
To learn more about composite fillings, visit the Academy of General Dentistry’s published fact sheet.

Dental Surgery Yielding Real Results

Root Canals 
Root canals are performed in order to repair and save a decayed or infected tooth. The affected nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. If left untreated, the surrounding tissue will eventually become infected and abscesses may form. 

Signs of a root canal include the following: 
• Severe toothache when chewing food or applying pressure 
• Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
• Discoloration of the tooth
• Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
• A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Although a root canal procedure requires one or more visits, any pain or discomfort you’re experiencing will slowly diminish. When you schedule an appointment with us, we will explain to you the entire procedure to ensure you know what’s required, and what we need to do to treat the root canal.

Post & Core Buildup – this restoration is used to prepare your tooth for future restoration with a crown. A fiber optic post (pin) is also placed in the tooth to retain the crown and stabilize your tooth.

Dental Crowns 
There are many types of dental crowns. We offer various types depending on the specific needs and desires of our patients. Below are some photos and techniques of the various types we can offer to you.
• All Porcelain
• Full Cast
A crown (cap) is a cover placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. It is made to look like your natural tooth. 

Crowns may be placed for several reasons:
• Replace a tooth that is unable to be repaired by a filling
• It can hold together a cracked tooth
• It may hold a bridge in place
• They may also be used for aesthetic purposes

Crowns usually last at least five to seven years. In many cases they can last much longer, up to 20 years or more. Your crowns are an investment so the better you take care of them, the longer they will last!
