Q. I have sleep apnea. Can a dentist in Linden, NJ help me?


Sleep apnea is a serious health concern where you stop breathing several times– sometimes hundreds of times – per night. More than half of sleep time is oxygen deprived. Sufferers wake up unrefreshed and can fall asleep during the day, sometimes even behind the wheel. For them, it’s not “just” snoring. They suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – and up to 80% of those with mild to moderate OSA remain undiagnosed.

Dr. Sandhu is a sleep apnea dentist in Linden, NJ who treats sleep apnea with a small oral appliance that you wear at night. This is a great alternative to CPAP machines, which are difficult for many people to tolerate. Learn more on our Sleep Apnea page and take a short quiz to discover your risk factors.

Q. Do you place dental implants?


Yes, we are an implant Dentist in Linden, NJ! Dr. Sandhu has placed hundreds of them over the years.

Dental implants are a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth, regain form and function, and avoid the bone loss and facial changes that come when teeth are lost. When you have more than one missing tooth, bone loss can give you a prematurely aged look, your ability to enjoy the foods you love can be diminished (as chewing may become compromised), and your nutrition may also suffer. Dental implants can intercept all of these risks.

A dental implant continually stimulates your jawbone, preventing further bone loss. They are self-supporting (they don’t need crowns on neighboring teeth for support as with a dental bridge) and are beautifully crafted to look like a natural tooth.

Q. How often do I need to visit my dentist in Linden, NJ?


The American Dental Association recommends you see your dental team at least two times per year, and depending on your oral health, this frequency may increase. Your visits will include a teeth cleaning and polishing, and at least one of the visits each year will include a checkup with Dr. Sandhu.

Seeing us twice a year at minimum helps us help you to keep your oral health at its optimum level … the best it can be.
