In your local dentist’s conception of an ideal world, everyone would come into the practice of Dr. Baqir Jaffery, every six months for a routine dental exam and cleaning. This way, tooth decay and gum disease would never have time to get out of control, and procedures like tooth extraction and root canal therapy would only be necessary only occasionally. Unfortunately, though, this isn’t the world we live in. Many of us — due to busyness, mild fear of the dentist or some other reason — come in only when things get really bad. While our Sewell family dentist, Dr. Ettelson knows it’s not realistic for everyone to make their semiannual appointments, he would like to encourage you to give the office a call as soon as you notice the early signs of a problem, rather than waiting around for things to get really bad.

There are a number of symptoms you should be especially watchful for. The first is gums that go from being pink and firm to being swollen, red and bloody. Even bleeding during brushing and flossing is a problem requiring prompt professional attention from our Sewell family dentist at Dr. Baqir Jaffery. As you may already know, these are signs that, like lots of other Americans, you have gingivitis. If caught early, gingivitis is fairly easily treated with a professional cleaning, provided you stay on top of your dental hygiene at home. If left to fester, however, gingivitis becomes more and more difficult to treat, eventually leading to bone deterioration and tooth-loss. Another couple of warning signs you should pay attention to are increased tooth sensitivity and pain when chewing, as both can be indicators of gum disease and cavities.

We here at the Sewell family dentist practice of Dr. Baqir Jaffery, really can’t stress this enough: The sooner you get treatment for your mild symptoms, the better your chances will be that you won’t have to have significant periodontal or other types of oral surgery. Filling’s aren’t exactly fun, but they’re definitely preferable to a root canal or an extraction. Stop procrastinating. Call or use our online scheduler to set up a comprehensive dental exam today!

Have you experienced tooth loss? Has your tooth loss begun to affect how you live your life to the point where you feel it is taking away from your quality of life? If you can relate to these questions and would like a solution, we invite you to visit our Sewell dental office and discuss the possibilities of dental implants with our acclaimed dentist, Dr. Barry Ettelson. Dental implants are one of the most popular treatments when it comes to the management and replacement of missing teeth. They can solve many of the issues commonly associated with missing teeth, such as difficulty chewing food properly and difficulty pronouncing words properly. Not to mention, replacing teeth that are missing is often a huge confidence boost for the patients at our Sewell dental office, as they can return to smiling with pride again.

The actual implant that goes directly into your jawbone is a tiny post made out of titanium metal. Over a period of time spanning anywhere from three to six months, the metal begins to integrate with the bone that surrounds it in your jaw. This process of combination forms what will be the “root” of your new replacement tooth. After Dr. Ettelson has confirmed that the new foundation of metal and bone is strong enough to support your new tooth, you will need to return to our Sewell dental office for the next part of the implant restoration. This consists of the attachment of a dental crown. The dental crown is essentially the replacement tooth. It is tooth-colored and made of materials so that it is able to function just like a natural tooth. This attachment process will complete the restoration.

If you would like to learn more about dental implants or any of the other services available to you at our Sewell dental office, please visit Dr. Ettelson’s website for additional information. If you have a question or comment, or if you would like to schedule an appointment, feel free to contact us by phone or online. Dr. Ettelson and staff look forward to working with you soon.
