Invisalign® can straighten your teeth using virtually undetectable aligner trays. Dr. Mouner Amer or Dr. Khaled Eldin will use our special computer software to plan your treatment. Then your dentist will give you a set of comfortable, clear aligners. These devices will gradually straighten your teeth, typically over nine to 18 months. If you have only slight misalignment, we can also supply Invisalign® Express, which takes about 10 weeks to achieve your results. Invisalign Teen® can also be a good option since it will give your child two free replacement aligners.
If you have more serious misalignment, we may recommend traditional braces. Braces are often a better choice for younger children who may not remember to wear removable aligners. If you opt for traditional braces, Dr. Amer or Dr. Eldin will fix metal brackets to your teeth, connecting them with a flexible wire. By tightening the wire at regular intervals, your dentist can straighten your teeth, improve your dental function, and help you achieve a more uniform smile.
Drs. Amer and Eldin use very gentle techniques to perform root canal therapy with little to no discomfort such as wave one technology. In many cases, this treatment may be the only way to save your tooth and prevent infection from spreading to surrounding tissue. If the infection is minimal, he can often perform the treatment in a single appointment. During this procedure, your dentist will clean and disinfect the root canals and restore your tooth with a dental crown. This restoration will be custom-designed to blend with your smile.
At New Jersey Dental Centers, we offer both traditional silver amalgam and tooth-colored composite resin fillings. Both types can protect your tooth and seal it off to prevent further decay. Silver amalgam is very strong, but it may eventually affect the color of your enamel. Composite will match your smile and bond firmly with your tooth. If you have older restorations, Drs. Amer and Eldin can also replace your amalgam fillings. For your safety, we have a specialized machine to capture mercury vapors.
We will always try to save and restore compromised teeth. However, in cases of irreparable damage, extraction may be the most effective option. If you do require tooth extraction, we will use gentle techniques, and we will determine the most appropriate restorative treatment. We can also perform wisdom tooth extractions, including removing impacted and partially impacted teeth. Through regular exams, we can monitor the development of your teen’s wisdom teeth and decide whether extraction is necessary.
Gum disease can affect your dental health for life, leading to tooth loss, gum recession, and even bone degeneration. Drs. Amer and Eldin can treat gum disease at all stages. A deep cleaning is the most common treatment for moderate periodontitis. Your dentist will clean pockets of bacteria from your gums and provide tips for improved dental health. In the more advanced stages, you may require osseous gum surgery to treat bone loss. Our dentists use precise surgical lasers for blade-free treatment.
At New Jersey Dental Centers, we are here for you and your family whenever you need us. We have a 24/7 answering service, so you will always be able to talk to someone about any urgent concerns. We also provide treatment for many different dental emergencies, including broken, knocked out, and cracked teeth, as well as toothaches and damaged gum tissue. We will get you in to the office as soon as possible, and we will provide tips to minimize discomfort in the meantime.
Although we provide a full array of dental treatments, outstanding preventative care is a hallmark of our practice. Through regular checkups and cleanings, we can prevent serious dental issues. If they do occur, we can address them at the earliest stages. At each appointment, we will also conduct an oral cancer screening, and we can perform a biopsy, if needed. In addition, we offer special preventative procedures for our pediatric patients. Fluoride treatments and sealants can strengthen your child’s teeth and reduce the risk of dental decay.
