Did you know that over forty thousand root canals are performed each day? When decay, infection or trauma has impacted the nerve tissue deep inside your tooth, root canal therapy is the best solution for saving your natural tooth. Alan J Schwartz DDS, your experienced Kew Gardens dentist, provides root canal therapy and conscientious support to ensure your comfort and ease during your procedure.

Deep inside your teeth, beneath the hard enamel, is a central chamber filled with connective tissue, blood vessels and the nerve of each tooth. Known as the dental pulp, when injury or infection occurs, the nerve can become damaged beyond repair, making the tooth and surrounding tissue susceptible to infection. Root canal therapy involves removing the damaged tissue, then cleaning, disinfecting and sealing the central chamber to protect against further damage and to prevent re-infection. After a root canal is performed, your tooth may require a restoration, typically a filling or crown depending on the severity of the damage to the tooth. Providing the state-of-the-art in restorative options, your Kew Gardens dentist offers tooth colored fillings, as well as custom crowns, matched to the shade, shape, and proportions of your teeth and mouth resulting in excellent function and an aesthetically pleasing, natural appearance.

Many patients have a certain level of dental anxiety about root canal treatment. You should be reassured knowing that your Kew Gardens dentist takes special care to put you at ease and feel comfortable throughout the procedure. Emphasizing communication, and a variety of calming techniques ranging from controlled breathing, listening to music, to oral sedation options, Dr. Alan J Schwartz is committed to keeping you fully informed and relaxed while in his care. To schedule an appointment with a skilled experienced dental professional, call the office of Dr. Alan J Schwartz DDS today.

CEREC Dentist in Oceanside

Oceanside CEREC Dentist

Dental decay? Cracked fillings? Chipped or damaged teeth? When your tooth has sustained too much damage for a simple filling, a dental crown to restore the natural form and function to your tooth may be recommended. In many offices, when a dental crown is made, more than one appointment with the dentist is required. This is because after your tooth is prepared to receive a crown, a dental impression is taken and then sent to a lab for fabrication of your crown. However, with the advent of a procedure known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), it is possible for dental crowns to be made in just a single day. At Alan J. Schwartz DDS, your dentist in Oceanside, we pride ourselves on using the most advanced dental technology available today.

If your dentist determines that a full crown is needed, instead of biting into that goop used to make impressions, a camera is used to take a digital picture of your tooth. Then the real action happens. Your dentist uses 3D software to convert the image into a virtual model of your mouth. Then, your dentist uses the program to design the crown, customized to your jaw, bite and mouth. This design is then sent to a milling machine, which sculpts your crown from the best ceramic materials, matching exactly to your tooth shade. And best of all, your new crown does not take long to fashion! It can be done while you wait, during the same appointment If you need crowns, visit the office of Alan J. Schwartz DDS, your dentist in Oceanside, to take advantage of their available expertise and technology in CEREC.

Cosmetic Dentist in Oceanside

Dr. Schwartz has been providing exemplary general and cosmetic dentistry care to our patients for many years. Whether you are looking for one specific type of cosmetic dental treatment, or desire an entire plan that will help you achieve a perfect and healthy smile, we will be more than happy to meet with you to discuss how we can achieve your goal. For many patients, just a teeth whitening procedure is a great way to cost-effectively improve the overall appearance of their smile. As our teeth tend to yellow with age, many patients who have had teeth whitening performed by our cosmetic dentist in Oceanside exhibit a more youthful appearance. Offering the best cosmetic dental services to  help people improve the look of their smiles is our goal.  We know that a healthy smile is essential for your overall well-being, and can improve one’s self-confidence.

One of the many outstanding cosmetic dental solutions available today are dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells which are made to cover the front of a tooth. Dental veneers are extremely thin but extremely strong, and will last for many years. Dental veneers are permanently attached to your teeth, and are fabricated to either perfectly color-match your teeth or to whiten the appearance of your smile in the most natural manner. Dental veneers solve a wide range of cosmetic dental problems such as teeth that are too short, chipped or having a surface crack, slightly misaligned teeth, or teeth with uneven gaps between them.

If you are missing a tooth, you will require some type of prosthetic replacement to maintain the health of your smile. A missing tooth not only affects your appearance, it is detrimental to your dental health. Today, dental implants are an extremely popular choice as a tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth.
