What To Expect From A General Dentistry Visit
A visit to the Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry for general dentistry services is unlike any other trip to the dentist. We provide each patient with a comprehensive evaluation, including a physical inspection of the mouth, teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other support structures.
Our General Dental Services
Fillings restore teeth that have cavities or are decaying. Various materials may be used for a dental filling, including gold, porcelain, silver, or composite resin. Composite resin has become the most common material, as it can be matched to the exact color of your natural tooth enamel. To learn more about how dental fillings can restore cavities, see Dental Fillings.
Dr. Raj Upadya is a family dentist in East Hanover, New Jersey. His focus is providing oral health care for your entire family. Family dentistry involves both preventative and general care. Dr. Upadya is experienced in treating patients of all ages and loves caring for patients’ smiles from early through adulthood. To learn more about family dentistry, see Family Dentistry.
Laser dentistry is a modern advancement that may be used in various procedures. Dental lasers allow dentists to work with extreme precision. Laser procedures have shorter healing times, and patients report less pain. This is because the use of lasers allows for procedures to be non-invasive and lets dentists work around areas that contain nerves. To learn more about how lasers may be used to aid in dental procedures, see Laser Dentistry.
Root canals are used to restore a tooth in which infection has reached the tooth’s root. Local anesthetic is generally administered before the procedure begins. Then, the infected tissue is removed, and the area is thoroughly cleaned using small dental instruments. After this is complete, a temporary crown will be placed, and impressions will be taken for a permanent crown. To learn more about how a root canal can be used to treat advanced tooth infection, see Root Canal.
You will also have a personal consultation with Dr. Upadya to discuss your health history, cosmetic dental concerns, and other dental problems. We recommend you visit us at least every six months, which is important for various reasons. The main reason is that it is vital to your oral health. Dental issues will go unnoticed without regular visits and only worsen.
Catching problems early, such as gum disease or tooth decay, will allow our office to treat the issue as soon as possible. Another reason is to have a bright, healthy smile from regular teeth cleanings. Everyone loves the feeling of clean teeth when they leave the dentist!
Our examination typically includes:
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Periodontal Screening (for gum disease)
- Dental Caries (Cavities) Screening
- Examination of the Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ) and Jaw Position
- Occlusal (Bite) Analysis
- Digital Imaging for Analysis, Diagnosis, and Treatment Planning
- Mounted Models for Analysis and Treatment Planning
Dr. Upadya has incorporated cutting-edge dental technology into his East Hanover dental office to help us precisely identify the underlying cause of dental concerns. By treating the root of the problem, Dr. Upadya can ensure problems do not continue to happen repeatedly. His goal is always to preserve as much of your natural smile as possible while treating any concerns at the root of the cause.
