5 Smile Makeover Questions For Middlesex Smiles

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At Advanced Dentistry, our Middlesex smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. Ralph Reilly develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?
Many Somerville and Bridgewater cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Plainfield dental patients. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Middlesex residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at 732-564-7980 to discuss dental financing options in Middlesex.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
At Advanced Dentistry in Middlesex our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

Call Advanced Dentistry today at 732-564-7980 to schedule a no-pressure cosmetic dental consultation.

Middlesex: 7 Surprising Causes Of Bad Breath

Middlesex men and women who have chronic bad breath understand the embarrassment and frustration associated with this condition. There are several possible causes, some that are often overlooked by our Middlesex patients.

Poor oral hygiene
Digestive problems
Systemic infection
Bacteria on dentures
Gum disease
Food particles on tonsils
Dry mouth
At Advanced Dentistry, we can help you with this unpleasant problem. If your bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene, you’re in luck – this is one of the easiest types to treat. If you have visited our Middlesex dental blog before, you know step one: make sure you brush for a full three minutes and floss before you climb into bed.

People who have no idea how long they brush can set a timer (there is probably one on your smartphone). In addition to cleaning tooth surfaces, scrub your tongue! Then take the time to carefully floss around each tooth to remove the plaque between your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Some extra-careful Bridgewater oral hygiene pros brush after each meal to prevent bacteria-causing food particles from sitting on their teeth during the day. In addition to freshening your breath, practicing proper oral hygiene will improve your health.

Schedule an examination and deep dental cleaning at Advanced Dentistry in Middlesex. Our dental hygienists will get all the plaque and calculus off your teeth. During your examination, Dr. Ralph Reilly will determine whether you have a dental problem that is contributing to your breath.

Possible dental causes are a cavity, a broken crown, or gum disease. If Dr. Reilly suspects that your bad breath is caused by a non-dental problem, such as a respiratory infection, you will be referred to an appropriate Plainfield area medical professional.

Treating bad breath in Middlesex starts with a visit to Advanced Dentistry. In addition to general dental care, we provide a complete menu of cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers. Call us at 732-564-7980 today!

Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk In New Jersey

Most health-conscious individuals in the Somerville, Bridgewater and Middlesex area exercise regularly, and many turn to sports drinks for hydration.

While it’s true that they help maintain electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel erodes, those pearly whites are more susceptible to staining, discoloration, and decay.

Nobody wants stained teeth, so next time you’re at your New Jersey gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.

If you have already experienced staining and tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, give Advanced Dentistry a call at 732-564-7980.

We are a superior New Jersey dental practice that offers:

sedation dentistry
porcelain veneers
All-on-4

And so much more!

Dr. Ralph Reilly has been treating dental patients in the New Jersey area since 1985. The world class staff here can answer any questions you have about preventative oral care and cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, gum contouring, invisible braces, tooth-colored fillings and smile makeovers.

Call us today for an appointment!

Do You Grind Your Teeth While You Sleep?

Here is the Advanced Dentistry guide to treating teeth grinding.

Understand
Most teeth grinding will occur while sleeping. Consistent teeth grinding might be suspected with a sore jaw and dull headache in the mornings.
