General Dental Solutions
Routine dental care at our Succasunna office may include:
- Plaque removal: Gum and tooth infections are usually caused by plaque buildup found above and below the gum line. Specialized dental tools make it easier to reach areas where plaque may build up.
- Improved tooth aesthetics: Regular cleaning can help rid teeth of stains or yellowed teeth. Patients receive a whiter and brighter smile with good oral hygiene.
- Fresher breath: Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is caused by a combination of rotting food particles and possible gum infection. Cleaning teeth regularly can help fight infection, leaving your breath fresher and your teeth healthier.
If you or your child play contact sports, you need to wear a sports mouthguard. Sports mouth guards protect teeth from injury and can help prevent restorative dental work in the future. Wearing a mouthguard during sports offers many benefits. Mouthguards prevent tooth loss, fit securely, reduce the chance of concussion, protect dental work from damage, and provide a stable result. “Boil and bite” mouthguards found in stores don’t offer a custom professional fit. Over-the-counter mouthguards may fall out or make it difficult to speak. Professional custom-fit mouth guards should fit securely and not restrict speech.

Is dental fear or anxiety keeping you away from the dentist? Sedation dentistry is a simple way to have a pain-free and stress-free visit to the dentist. Minor or complex dental concerns can be addressed with sedation and it can be used for all types of patients. Nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and oral conscious sedation are several examples of treatments that relax patients and make it easier for dentists to perform care. In addition, sedation dentistry is safe for patients and is great for patients who have sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, or require multiple surgical treatments.
If you have severely decayed teeth, they may need to be removed. Root canals can be done to try to remove infection and clean out teeth, but if teeth are too damaged for this treatment, extraction is necessary. Tooth extraction is not only an option for decayed teeth but can also treat damaged teeth, crowded teeth, and misaligned teeth. Wisdom teeth and impacted teeth may also need to be removed in order to prevent overcrowding and shifting teeth.
