Long Branch General Dentistry Services:
Optimal oral health starts with good preventative dental care. When you are here for your checkup, we look for early signs of tooth decay and gum disease, check your brushing and flossing effectiveness, give you a professional dental cleaning, even screen for oral cancer.
In order for us to provide good preventative care for you, we need to see you in our office! If you stay away and don't keep up with your regular checkups, you may be allowing undetected dental problems to fester that, by the time you do come in to see us, could have been prevented had you come in for your normal checkup. Book an appointment today!
A good, thorough, professional teeth cleaning feels soooo good, doesn't it? You leave the dentist's office and swear you are never going to eat again to preserve that smooth-as-silk feeling across the surface of your teeth. A good dental cleaning of your teeth does more than just make your mouth feel fresh however; it removes all the built-up plaque and tartar that accumulates, no matter how good your brushing and flossing routine is at home. That's why it's essential to visit us regularly, so we can clear out all that stuck-on bacteria and debris that your brush and floss can't reach.
There's no need to fear cavities - dental fillings is probably the most common procedure a dentist performs. And dentistry has come a long way from the silver mercury fillings of days past. Amalgam fillings are still available to you should you prefer them, however there are better, more natural-looking options available now, including composite resin that can be matched perfectly to your teeth. If you suspect you may have a cavity, come see us at Li Family Dental Long Branch sooner rather than later; if caught early enough, your filling should be a simple painless procedure.
The do-it-yourself teeth whitening aisle at your local drugstore is staggering. Whitening toothpaste, charcoal toothpaste, specially-treated toothbrushes, trays, strips, bleaches, lasers... it's overwhelming to say the least. We can tell you that some of these products may be effective but not necessarily safe for your teeth. Others may be fairly safe but not very effective. Still others are neither safe nor effective and you should steer completely clear of them. Your best bet is to visit us for a professional teeth whitening consultation. We can provide you with options for your specific oral health situation and guide you in the right direction with clinically-proven professional whitening treatments.
If you are extra susceptible to tooth decay and cavities, it may not be all your fault. Yes, you could still stand to lay off the sugary and acidic foods. But if you follow a healthy diet and still suffer from persistent tooth decay, you may have grooves in the surface of your teeth where food and bacteria like to hide. But don't worry, there is a simple solution: tooth sealing. A special sealant is applied to the surface of your teeth which fills in these grooves and prevents bacteria from entering, thus preventing further tooth decay. Come talk to us at Li Family Dental Long Branch to see if you may be a candidate for tooth sealing.
Most people will need their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives. These teeth at the very back of your mouth tend to start erupting during the late teens/early twenties, and can cause tooth pain, jaw pain, headaches, and crowding of your existing teeth (and if you have recently graduated from orthodontic treatment and are now sporting a mouth of beautiful straight teeth, the last thing you want is for your wisdom teeth to push your existing teeth out of position again). Soon as you feel your wisdom teeth, make an appointment with us. Wisdom teeth removal is a standard procedure, and in most cases it's best to get them out as quickly as possible.
A root canal procedure is nothing to fear. You may be surprised to learn that the painful part of a root canal is not the procedure itself, but the infection that necessitated the procedure in the first place. Infection of the root canal can spread extremely quickly and cause excruciating pain, so it's vital that you come see us as soon as you suspect a problem. The sooner we can fix it, the better you will feel.
Emergency Dental Care
If you experience injury or trauma to your mouth or teeth, don't wait till the next business day to call us -- we have emergency dental care available when you need us!
We know many kids fear the dentist. At Li Family Dental Long Branch we are on a mission to change that. We specialize in Children's Dentistry, and love to see kids in our clinic. We talk through with them everything we do at their appointment, on their level in terms they can understand. We make sure they are comfortable and having fun so they look forward to coming to see us next time. Give us a chance to help your child overcome their fear of going to the dentist!
We also know that dental anxiety is common not just among kids, but among many adults as well. That's why we practice 'gentle dental'; if you tell us you have a fear of dental procedures, we will treat you with compassion and proceed only when you are comfortable.
Long Branch Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Dental implants are a great option if you require one or more artificial teeth and don't relish the prospect of dentures. Implants are the most natural-looking tooth replacement option, and because they are implanted right into your jawbone, they provide good solid bite support for improved chewing and digestion. Come talk to us at Li Family Dental Long Branch to find out your options.
Dentures are a good choice for some cases of tooth replacement, but there are many factors to consider that you may not have thought of. That's what we're here for. Make an appointment and we'll break it all down for you.
Did you know you don't have to wait weeks anymore for a dental crown? We use CEREC technology which enables us to assess, create, and fit your crown all in the same appointment. Dental crowns are a good option if you have a tooth that is too damaged for a filling, but the root is still healthy and strong. Talk to us at Li Family Dental about the best choice for you.
Dental bonding is a painless procedure meant for simple or minor repairs to teeth. However, bonding is not suitable for everyone. We can tell you if bonding will fix your dental issues.
Sometimes you may want a simple cosmetic improvement to one or more teeth. In such cases, dental veneers may be the answer. Veneers are porcelain shells that are permanently fixed to your teeth, and greatly improvement the appearance of your smile.
Bridge implants can replace a string of consecutive missing teeth, they provide a strong, natural bite, and will last for many years. However, some people are not suitable candidates for bridge implants; if you have gum disease or a weak jaw bone, bridge implants will not work. Only your dentist can assess your unique dental needs and advise a treatment plan specific to you. Talk to us at Li Family Dental Long Branch to find out your best option.
