Restorative Dentistry by Sage Dental | NJ Dental Surgery
Restorative dentistry is the practice of diagnosing and managing dental diseases and the rehabilitating the teeth to the patient’s requirements (functional and aesthetic). This practice often involves surgery to restore teeth. Crowns are a kind of tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore the original shape of the tooth. Crowns are used when fillings cannot save the tooth. Many individuals have to visit a specialist to get root canals performed (endodontics), but patients of Sage Dental are pleased to have Dr. Israeli do those as well.
This saves patients time, hassle, and money. Fixed bridges are used to bridge the gap of one or more missing teeth. Two crowns on either side of the gap anchor the bridge. This bridge then supports a false tooth or teeth. A bridge usually takes two visits, one to prepare the teeth that will support the bridge, and the installation of a temporary bridge. The second visit is when the temporary bridge is removed that the permanent one secured. Dr. Israeli makes sure the fit is comfortable before it is cemented into place.
Additional Surgical Options | Surgical Dentistry in NJ
When all else fails, extractions are necessary to remove a tooth that cannot be saved, or when extraction is used to prepare for other dental procedures. These procedures range from bridges and dentures to a more permanent solution like implants. Dr. Israeli uses a local anesthetic for comfort, and as he is also a certified in sedation, can give patients a choice of additional sedatives to calm anxiety.
Sage Dental creates well-fitting partial and full dentures that take the place of natural teeth. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Partial dentures are for patients who are only missing a few of their teeth, while those who are missing all of their lower or upper teeth wear full dentures. Sage Dental has a laboratory that customizes the most comfortable dentures for patients at a fast pace.
Dr. Israeli and his team at Sage Dental are perhaps most well known for their dental implants. Most dentists are not capable or certified to do dental implants, and must send their patients to outside specialists. However, from diagnosis to placement, Dr. Israeli provides every aspect of implant dentistry. His offering of dental implants to Sage Dental patients allows him to offer the procedure at a fraction of what it normally costs, with as much as 70% less.
