General Dentist for Sewell Families
Cavities, gum disease, root canal infections, and missing teeth compromise your oral health, overall vitality, and confidence. At Connolly Family Dentistry, our experienced dentists and friendly dental team offer a full range of restorative dentistry services. We’ll use our products, techniques, expertise, and technology to enhance your impaired smile. With our restorative dentistry services, we can use composite fillings, periodontal therapy, temporomandibular joint therapy, and root canal therapy to make your teeth healthy and functional.
Dental implants are the clear frontrunner today when it comes to reconstructive dentistry, both for their valuable health benefits and their sturdy, lifelike appearance. Here at our Sewell, NJ practice, we can provide patients with beautiful, customized restorations that compliment their appearance and blend in seamlessly with their existing smile. After a while, you may even forget that you ever lost your natural tooth to begin with.
Root canal therapy is required when the nerve within the tooth becomes infected and dies. With the help of digital X-rays, our dentists use state-of-the-art instrumentation to remove the pulp, nerve and decay, thoroughly cleaning the diseased tooth. The tooth will be sealed, and we usually recommend adding a porcelain crown to protect it from fracturing.
Little smiles need special attention to stay healthy throughout those crucial first years; that’s why our dentists take the time to give your son or daughter personalized attention through our available pediatric services. With thorough check-ups, gentle cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and much more, we can ensure that children are well-established on the path towards lifelong oral health and that any potential developmental problems are caught and treated right away.
When used together, crown and bridge treatment provides patients with a flexible and effective way to replace missing teeth. The bridge is a restoration that’s used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row, and it’s fixed into place with the help of two crowns, which are anchored securely to healthy teeth. Crafted out of dental porcelain, this restorative technique offers results that are both beautiful and strong!
You are probably familiar with silver (amalgam) fillings used to repair decayed or cracked teeth. While we sometimes still use amalgam fillings, we highly recommend the use of tooth-colored, composite fillings. Composite fillings offer a more aesthetically pleasing result, and it actually bonds to the tooth, strengthening it and decreasing sensitivity.
The condition termed TMJ or TMD (Temporal Mandibular Dysfunction) accounts for a large number of previously incurable and painful ailments. Without correcting the initiating problem (damage or misalignment of the jaw joint), the symptoms of TMD will continue. With new knowledge and technology, the dentists at Connolly Family Dentistry are able to diagnose and treat TMJ problems. Learn more about TMJ therapy.
In certain situations, surgical procedures may be necessary in order to preserve and/or improve the health of a patient’s smile. Our dentists are skilled in performing these procedures, from common wisdom tooth extraction to reconstructive care. We always take the time to ensure that patients feel completely comfortable and at ease throughout the process, and we’ll be sure to provide you with any instructions that you need to follow so that you can recover as soon as possible.
