Here at the office ofDr. Baqir Jaffery, the number one Glassboro family dentist, some of our most important services are our dental exams. If you cannot remember the last time you had a professional dental exam, it is time to schedule a visit with our Glassboro family dentist. Visiting Dr. Ettelson for regular dental examinations can make a huge difference when it comes to preventing common dental issues such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and others.

Glassboro Dental X-rays

During each comprehensive dental exam at our office, our Glassboro family dentist will first perform an in-depth physical examination of each of your teeth, your gums, and the surrounding structures of your mouth. We will search for signs of decay, periodontal disease, and other issues that may be in need of treatment. We also often use x-ray technology during our dental exams at Dr. Ettelson’s office. X-rays allow us to uncover problem areas that may not have been visible to the naked eye. They also allow us to easily share diagnoses with you by pointing them out visually to you. In addition, x-rays allow our Glassboro family dentist to keep a physical record of your oral health that we can refer back to in the future should we need to.

In addition to having your teeth examined, you can also opt for a professional cleaning, which is an important part of keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. We use in-depth cleaning techniques to remove stubborn tartar and plaque that home care alone cannot. At the conclusion of your examination and cleaning, our Glassboro family dentist will be able to recommend treatments if necessary based on the results. Keeping up with these exams about twice a year can truly help you by encouraging earlier diagnosis of dental issues, more effective and less complex treatments, and more.

If you would like to learn more about dental exams or any of the other may services provided by our Glassboro family dentist, we encourage you to visit Dr. Ettelson’s main website to browse through some of the additional information we have made available for you there. If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss, do not hesitate to contact our staff for help. We are ready and waiting to assist you. We hope to see you at Dr. Ettelson’s office soon.

A dental crown, which is used to cap your tooth after root canal therapy or to reinforce the strength of a tooth when it has been eroded by tooth decay, chipping, or fracturing, can be made from different types of materials. Perhaps the most flexible of these, offering an option that offers both durability and a precision fit, is porcelain fused to metal, otherwise known as PFM crowns. Our Glassboro dentist, Dr. Baqir Jaffery, is pleased to make these crowns available to you.

So, why porcelain fused to metal rather than either used separately? Simply, it offers the best qualities of each material. The metal portion is fit directly over the tooth. The porcelain is then fused to the top of the metal, thus completing the shape of the crown and most important of all, making your crown a good color match for your natural teeth. As a result, you receive the sturdiness that comes from metal while benefiting from the cosmetic edge afforded from the porcelain. In addition, the metal creates a better fit directly over the tooth, so there is less worry about how securely the crown will sit on top of the tooth. There are some concerns about PFM crowns, of course, and our Glassboro dentist wants to be certain that you know the pros and the cons going in.

The primary drawback to a PFM crown is that the porcelain top portion may break. This is not a common occurrence, but it is a possibility. However, this is also a potential problem with a crown made entirely from porcelain, so unless you are completely uninterested in your crown matching the look of your teeth, this is not a huge problem. It is just a possible disadvantage when porcelain is utilized. Another drawback to PFM crowns is that there needs to me more tooth trimming- in other words, more of your natural tooth surface will have to be drilled away- to accommodate the porcelain fused to metal crown than would be the case with an all metal crown. Overall, the plusses for a PFM crown are likely to outweigh the minuses, but you should discuss your preferences and needs together with our Glassboro dentist.
