While dentures are an affordable option that can in fact be a perfectly effective means of treatment, they do not work for everyone. The process of relearning how to chew and speak effectively with dentures can be difficult for some, while others may have difficulty with care and adjustments. For those who will settle for nothing less than the appearance of natural teeth, that are as strong if not more durable than your own smile, your trusted Washington Township cosmetic dentist can work with you to give you a beautiful and healthy smile through dental implants. Unlike bridges, which attach to adjacent teeth and damage said remaining teeth in the process, dental implants are placed directly in your jaw bone for effective care that does not need to cause any harm to the rest of your smile.

Dental implants from your professional Washington Township cosmetic dentist begin with a titanium post implanted directly into the jaw bone. Titanium is the most ideal metal for implant surgery, as it is not only one of the strongest on our planet today, but also exhibits the least amount of allergic reactions, making it both a safe and effective means of replacing your teeth. Once your jaw bone has grown and healed around this post, placed carefully in your mouth to support and mimic your old tooth or teeth, it is topped with a metal abutment which supports a beautiful porcelain crown. Porcelain can not only be made to match any shade to perfectly blend in with your natural teeth, but it also resists staining better than your own smile, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite drinks and food without worrying about your dental work. Dental implants from the offices of Dr. Baqir Jaffery can last a lifetime, and once healed can be cared for just as you would your own teeth for a beautiful smile you can enjoy to the fullest.

Regardless of age, anyone who has teeth can get cavities, and cavities and dental decay are among the world’s most common health problems. Permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth, cavities develop into very small openings or holes. Also referred to as tooth decay, cavities are caused by a combination of things, including teeth not being cleaned well, bacteria in your mouth, snacking too often, and drinking overly sugared beverages. Our Washington Township general dentist, Dr. Baqir Jaffery, likes to educate all our patients on the importance of good oral hygiene and the consequences of cavities and tooth decay.

If cavities are left untreated, they get larger and soon affect the deeper layers of your teeth. This untreated tooth decay will also lead to severe toothache, infection and, ultimately, loss of the tooth. Dr. Ettelson cannot stress enough how important regular dental visits are as well as good brushing and flossing habits to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Depending on the location and extent of decay, the symptoms can vary. Some signs to watch out for are toothache, sensitivity or sharp pain when eating sweets or something hot or cold, pain when biting down, visible holes in teeth, or any discharge around teeth or gums. When a cavity is new there is often no symptom at all but our dentist might be able to see decay starting and recommend the proper steps to prevent it from getting worse. That’s why it’s important to make and keep regular dental checkup appointments with our Washington Township general dentist, as well and cleanings. Your mouth may feel fine but by the time you notice symptoms, the damage is getting worse.

As far as treatments for tooth decay go, they depend on the severity of the decay and each patient’s situation. Fluoride is a mineral that helps teeth repair themselves and fluoride treatments are common at early stages of decay. Fillings replace decayed areas of your teeth and are the leading treatment option once the damage has become permanent. If you have severe tooth decay or your teeth have weakened due to the cavity, you may need a crown rather than a filling to restore your tooth. Our Washington Township general dentist will recommend a root canal when decay reaches your tooth’s pulp (the inner material of your tooth). With this procedure, the tooth pulp is removed and replaced with a filling. Dr. Ettelson prides himself on keeping his patients educated on not only symptoms and treatments, but causes. With this education, patients may be able to avoid costly and uncomfortable dental problems which can lead to tooth loss.
