At Holistic Dentistry Montclair, we’ll all about keeping your smile healthy, strong, and whole. Our desire is to do as little as possible while getting the most results in order to keep both your smile and your body as pure and natural as we can. So, if one of your teeth has been extensively damaged due to decay or injury, we will only use the most conservative restorative treatments we can to help you reclaim your original smile. We always use high-quality and environmentally safe materials, so when you leave our office, you’ll be able to smile with complete confidence. Do your teeth need a little help? We’re happy to provide it, so contact us today.
Crowns and bridges are two of the most trusted treatments in all of dentistry when it comes to repairing damaged teeth and replacing missing ones. Unlike most other offices, we only use natural-looking and mercury-free materials to make our restorations so we can repair your smile and safeguard your health at the same time. Thanks to Dr. Moussa’s meticulous attention to detail, he’ll make your smile look like nothing bad ever happened to it.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of a strong and malleable material called composite resin, and in addition to being able to be specially shaded to perfectly match a patient’s smile, it also enables us to use less material and get more results. With it, we can preserve more of your natural tooth while repairing it, giving you a tooth that not only looks great, but one that can be trusted to last as well.
Air abrasion fillings give us the ability to repair slightly decayed teeth without the use of a dental drill. With air abrasion, a small instrument will expose your teeth to a high-velocity stream of air and silica particles that will gently buff away the decayed portion of your tooth while preserving most of its natural structure. With this approach, we don’t need to use any injections or anesthetic, and the result is a strong and more natural-looking restoration.
Traditional amalgam fillings contain a small amount of mercury, and more and more patients are becoming concerned about having this dangerous material in their mouths. If this includes you, Dr. Moussa would happy to examine your fillings and see if they should be replaced. If a filling is old, cracked, or damaged, he can easily switch it out for a more conservative and tooth-colored option that is also mercury-free. He’ll take all the caution in the world to protect you from mercury exposure during the removal process as well.
If you are missing multiple teeth and would like to have them replaced without the need for surgery, then dentures offer a quick, reliable, and very affordable solution. Thanks to advances in dental prosthetics, they are now smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. Partial dentures can be used to replace multiple missing teeth while fitting in seamlessly with the remaining ones (like the piece of a puzzle), while full dentures are a simple way to bring back an entire row of teeth in an instant.
We will do everything in our power to help you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible, but in some cases, an extraction is completely unavoidable. We will only remove a tooth if:
In any case, we will be as gentle as possible in order to not damage the surrounding bone and soft tissues. We’ll use Ozone Therapy to quickly sterilize the area, and we’ll quickly get to work helping you choose an appropriate replacement.
