What is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is the basis of Dr. Sandhu’s philosophy and practice. The goal of preventive dentistry is putting in place a routine of good oral care to prevent problems from developing over a lifetime. Patient education on good oral hygiene, regular cleanings (prophylaxis), and early intervention at the first sign of an abnormality keep you ahead of significant problems in the future.
Daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash are the first step to good oral hygiene. The second step is regular professional prophylaxis every six months. The cleaning is performed by a certified dental hygienist to eliminate any plaque on your teeth that daily brushing could not. After the cleaning, Dr. Sandhu spends time doing a comprehensive exam, looking at your teeth, gums, tongue, and lips for anything that needs further attention.
Occlusion is the term for a cavity or decay of a tooth. Upon locating occlusion, Dr. Sandhu offers many different types of restoration (fillings) to repair the damage. The decay should be removed from the tooth as soon as possible to prevent the decay from spreading and requiring a larger area of restoration and possibly a more expensive procedure.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
For extensive damage such as large cavities, cracked teeth, or worn-down teeth, several options exist to make the tooth as good as new and looking as natural as the rest of your teeth. Fillings, inlays/onlays, bridges, dentures, or dental implants are referred to as Restorative Dentistry and could be the answer for you.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
For patients wanting brighter or straighter teeth, Dr. Sandhu is the dentist in Linden, NJ who can get the job done. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of the teeth. Restoring a tooth to its natural shape or color can require anything from whitening treatments to porcelain veneers.
Orthodontic treatments are available to straighten crooked or oddly spaced teeth. Regular braces or the Invisalign system will address these problems, depending on whether you want the wires or to try the newest clear aligners.
There are many other oral complications that Dr. Sandhu can treat, such as sleep apnea and snoring. The most common cause of sleep apnea is excess weight and obesity, which causes an airway obstruction by the throat and tongue muscles becoming too relaxed. Dentists treat airway obstruction with a machine called a CPAP, but a mandibular advancement device (MAD) may keep the airway open by easing the lower jaw forward, keeping the throat open while asleep. You can get this custom-made device from Dr. Sandhu’s office for a better night’s sleep. Bad breath and TMD treatments are available, as well.
