Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening enables patients who have discoloration to restore their smiles and confidence levels. Even when patients practice regular brushing and flossing, discoloration can occur which is why tooth whitening counterbalances the adverse effects of food, drink, and lifestyle choices. Whitening not only restores the beauty of your smile, but it makes you feel good about showing others as well. teeth whitening

Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes discoloration?

Discoloration can occur for a variety of reasons including continued consumption of caffeine, sugars, acids, or nicotine. As the staining gets darker, it becomes more noticeable to others. There are primarily three types of discoloration that you should be aware.
  • Intrinsic: A darkening that occurs to the dentin (inner layer) generally caused by trauma or a tooth with history of Root Canal Therapy.
  • Extrinsic: Discoloration that occurs in the enamel (outer layer) of your teeth generally caused by poor oral hygiene routine, smoking and diet.
  • Aging: Over time, the enamel thins due to routine wear and yellowing occurs do to the second layer of the tooth (dentin) becomes more visible.
  The most significant contributors to discoloration include:  
  • Long-term use of caffeinated drinks like tea, soda, and coffee.
  • Intake of wine over an extended period.
  • Consumption of tar and nicotine are significant contributors to discoloration.
  • Natural discoloration often occurs because of the natural aging process.
  • The build-up of plaque and debris will contribute to yellowing.
  • Long-term use of medication causes discoloration.
  • Trauma to a tooth such as an accident or internal bleeding.
  • Overexposure to fluoride at a young age.

Can I use a store-bought whitener?

Because of the popularity of whitening, there are plenty of over-the-counter products available. Even though some are cheaper than professional dental whitening products, there are distinct differences in the quality which means that they will not make much of a difference when it comes to extrinsic discoloration on your enamel. Therefore, the American Dental Association recommends that you consult with a dentist before using any product that contains bleaching agents. OTC products often include harsh chemicals that cause thinning of enamel which cause irreparable damage to your natural teeth. What procedures are available at Newbury Dental Group? Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh and Dr. Sam Saghizadeh provide a variety of whitening services that are highly effective and affordable. After an initial exam and cleaning, you have access to in-office and at-home treatment plans based on necessity.  
  • In-office teeth whitening: Patients who opt for an in-office procedure have access to stronger ingredients as you are under medical care. Patients typically experience a whitening of up to eight shades depending on either a 30 or 45-minute process.
  • Professional at-home dental whitening treatment: Some patients opt for an at-home treatment plan because of accessibility. At Newbury Dental Group, our dentist will fabricate your own customized trays and provide scientifically-proven gel to ensure a higher probability of results.
  Patients who choose to whiten their teeth do so for both personal and professional enrichment. The best option is to consult with our dental experts to decide which option will be better based on factors like daily schedules, eating habits, and whitening needs.  You may opt for an initial in-office treatment and then use of take-home tray and gels to maintain your beautiful new smile at home.

Smile Makeover

Our patients choose smile makeovers for various reasons including aesthetics and dental imperfections. When you opt for a smile makeover at our Newbury Park dental office, you will experience one or more cosmetic procedures that enhance your appearance including a full dental reconstruction, veneers, implants, or teeth whitening.

Smile Makeover

Smile Makeover Q & A:

Why do I need a smile makeover?

For anyone who has ever chipped or broken a tooth, you understand the difficulties of not only performing daily functions like eating or drinking, but you know it also affects your ability to smile when you want. There are a few things you should consider regarding your oral health.
  • Lost teeth are a primary consideration to choose a smile makeover as it will negatively impact your appearance and ability to interact with others. Our dentists can quickly fix this issue with implants, partial dentures, or bridges.
  • Spacing and alignment are also crucial to your oral health which is why chipped and crooked teeth can be problematic. Our dental staff recommends Lumineers for dental imperfections and Invisalign for alignment issues.
  • Discoloration is a significant issue because of the complicated ingredients used in food and beverages. Composite restorations and whitening will restore your smile, but you may also opt for porcelain veneers, implants, crowns, or bridges which ensure longevity, beauty, and restoration of tooth function.
  • Smile makeovers also consider cosmetic dentistry which includes maxillofacial surgery to reshape your smile, lips, and cheeks. Additional restorative techniques may also include orthodontics, gum tissue reduction, crowns, veneers, composite bonding, or whitening.

How does a Smile Makeover improve my appearance aesthetically?

Cosmetic dentistry is a crucial part of any smile makeover as people notice the appearance of your teeth just like they do your mouth’s oral health. Size, shape, bite, and proportion are all things a patient should consider when choosing a smile makeover.
  • Your smile line is an essential part of a smile makeover as there may be an imbalance between the upper teeth and your lower lip. It enables our dentists to use it as a reference to how big or small your new teeth need to be.
  • Length of teeth is also an essential concept to your smile makeover. As your teeth ages, your teeth lose their height due to enamel wear. You may need a reshaping or a bit of length which will restore the youthfulness of your smile. We may use veneers or composites to extend the length cosmetically which will produce a slimmer facial appearance.
  • Tooth feature is another aesthetic issue to think about. Your Lumineers or veneers can be customized based on male or female natural tooth characteristics.
  • Aesthetic appearance is also an issue to consider as there must be a balance between your front teeth and the less dominant ones. Our dentist will analyze the length and width of each tooth in proportion to each other.

How do I maintain my smile makeover?

It is crucial that you continue to maintain your oral health and hygiene routine. Other than that, there are certain things you should do to support your new look. During some daily activities, you may experience chips or fractures to your new veneers which you should be aware to avoid certain foods that may cause damage. Composite bonding will stain overtime based one diet and oral hygiene habits which will require you to undergo a replacement after a certain amount of years. Tooth whitening should be repeated based on a dental recommendation, but it is a vital step that maintains your look. You should continue to follow any after-care instructions provided by our office. During routine check-ups and cleanings, we will analyze your oral health and offer advice that helps you maintain your beautiful smile.

Root Canals: Endodontic Therapy

Endodontic Therapy or often referred to as root canal therapy (RCT) is when irreversible damage has occurred to the pulp of the tooth.  Many things can cause this irreversible damage to the pulp, most commonly is when the caries extends into the pulp. Other times it can be due to fracture that extends into the pulp.  Less common reason for root canal therapy is when the teeth are moved too quickly during orthodontic treatment leading to root resorption. Dentists utilize root canal treatment to remove the infected nerve tissue in the pulp chamber and canal (or canals) of the tooth to save the tooth.  If root canal isn’t done, the infection will eventually reach the end of the root and lead to periapical pathology (PAP) like an abscess to form and we lead to future bone resorption around the tooth to occur. Thus, the earlier the detection and treatment, the better the tooth’s prognosis will be.

root canal

Root Canal Q & A

What is the root canal procedure?

Root Canal therapy starts with your dentist gaining access to the pulp chamber and locating the canals, one canal to multiple number of canals are present depending on the tooth.  Then the pulp chamfer and root canals are cleaned and shaped. Once all the infected tissue has been removed, an inert material (Guetta Purcha) is placed to the end of the canal to create a seal that will safeguard your tooth from further disease and pain.  Once the root-canal treatment is completed, you dentist will give antibiotic to clear any infection that may still present.

What will I experience during a root canal treatment?

When you have a root canal, our endodontist will clear away the pulp and clean the tooth. After disinfecting the root, we will then reshape the canal and reseal it. During your appointment, a patient will experience four common practices during a treatment.
  • You will need some x-rays taken to verify root’s condition as well as look for any sign of infection.
  • The root canal therapy will be done under local anesthesia to alleviate any discomfort or pain you maybe experiencing and ensure during the procedure you experience any discomfort as well.  If the tooth is very badly infected, your doctor may want to put you on antibiotic prior to start of the root canal therapy to ensure full sedation during the treatment.
  • The dentist will perform the root canal therapy under rubber dam to ensure isolation and secure the area from wetness and contamination. During this procedure, we will need to drill into the interior of the tooth to gain access to the pulp chamber and clear away the underlying pulp, any debris, and damaged nerves. We will lastly utilize various-sized tools to clean the root canals and pulp chamber and shape it to be filled with a special inert material (Guetta purcha) that will seal the root-canals.
  • After thoroughly rinsing the debris from the chamber and canals with sodium hypochlorite, the canal is dried and sealed with Guetta Purcha and sealer.  The excess material is removed, and your dentist will use a filling to restore the structural integrity of the tooth.

Is this procedure necessary?

Unlike other dental restoration procedures, root canal therapy is necessary because of the location of the infected material. Since there is also a chance of advanced decay, a root canal helps to remove the infection or abscess from the pulp, gums, or bone. Once the root canal occurs, a filling seals the tooth’s surface which completely restores its function.

Are root canals safe?

If you have never undergone a root canal, you may be hesitant to have one because of safety concerns. Not only are they safe, but dentists perform 15 million root canals annually because of favorable outcomes to oral health. This technique is one of the most efficient ways to treat decay and prevent the spread of infection to the rest of the body.

Will I experience any pain?

There is no pain associated with a root canal. You may experience pain before the procedure because of the advancement of abscess or infection. We do recommend anesthesia for patients who have a low pain tolerance or if you want to feel more comfortable during the process. The most critical benefit of a root canal is that after we complete it, you will be pain-free because of the alleviation of the infected nerve. As with other restoration therapies, root canals are long-lasting with the proper after-care.  We do recommend that you have routine check-ups so that we can assess the tooth’s functionality.

Lumineers

As your teeth age, they naturally weaken structurally and become discolored. Some patients even may experience a dental issue like chipping and breaking that will lead to further structural damage. For business professionals and moms and dads alike, a beautiful smile boosts self-confidence which is why our patients turn to Lumineers as the solution to their oral health and cosmetic needs.

veneers, lumineers

Lumineers Q & A

What is Lumineers?

Lumineers is an innovative “no-prep” procedure by experts at DenMat Lab that is highly beneficial to patients both orally and cosmetically.  They are only 0.2 mm thick which means that we will not have to remove any enamel unlike veneers. They are also translucent which is why they look and feel like your natural teeth. They are also durable and more resistant to wear and tear which makes Lumineers an ideal choice for patients who want a long-term solution because it blends usability and the aesthetics for a beautiful natural smile.

What are Lumineers made of?

They are constructed from a patented material called Cerinate porcelain. Even though they are thin, they are durable which infers that cerinate porcelain will last much longer than standard veneers. Unlike other dental restoration procedures, they require no pre-preparation, drilling, or temporary use of acrylic veneers, so there is no extended timeframe for the restoration of your beautiful smile.  

What takes place during a Lumineers dental restoration?

You will only need two appointments with us to receive your customized Lumineers. After receiving a consultation with one of our certified Lumineers specialists at Newbury Dental Group, we will schedule your first appointment where we will begin the process by performing an exam and cleaning. We will also take x-rays and impressions of your teeth using specialized technology that technicians will use to customize your veneers.   During your second appointment at Newbury Dental Group, you will receive your new set where you will be given the opportunity to analyze the color, shape, feel of them and to make sure that it is to your liking. Once we receive your approval, we will bond your new Lumineers to your teeth. We will also check that the accuracy of your bite is idealy balanced which will help to ensure the longevity of your beautiful smile.  A night guard is required after receiving them to ensure that they are protected.  

What are the benefits of choosing Lumineers over veneers?

This is a highly popular product because of the widespread benefits to patients. Not only do you rejuvenate your smile, but you do not cause any undue harm to your underlying teeth. Other benefits include:
  • No-preparation required
  • Will boost your confidence level
  • Best choice to cover structural damage
  • No need for temporary acrylics
  • They are translucent so it provides a natural look and feel.
  • They create an aesthetically-pleasing appearance.
  • Improve your quality of life.

Am I a candidate?

Candidates for Lumineers include dental patients who want to correct small to moderate dental imperfections or to enhance your smile cosmetically.  Much like the use of porcelain veneers, Lumineers is the ideal solution to a variety of dental issues including:
  • Discoloration of teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Structural problems affecting shape or alignment
  • Mild Gaps and spacing issues

Laser Dentistry

Our dentists use laser dentistry to assist in specific oral dental procedures which makes them easier to perform. Not only do dentists choose this method over other available instruments, but lasers ensure comfort and speed of healing time for patients.

Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Dentists use a variety of devices in their daily activities including the use of lasers to treat several dental procedures. Laser dentistry is a specialized procedure that creates a thin, precise beam of energy that connects with bone and tissue. This technique enhances many processes including:
  • Eliminates decay
  • Tissue removal
  • Remove bacteria
  • Reshape tissue
  • To make teeth whitening faster
  • To perform biopsies
  • To treat infected tissue during gum treatment (SRP)
  • Remove excess tissue
  • Getting rid of tumors
  • To rejuvenate muscle attachments that limit a tooth’s function
  • Assist in procedures that require impressions
  • Removal of tissue around wisdom teeth that have only partially erupted (Pericoronitis)
 

What are the advantages of lasers during dental procedures?

Dentists cite numerous advantages to using lasers over other instruments which improve the patient’s overall access to oral health. Other benefits include:
  • Lasers enable dentists to perform invasive surgery without drilling.
  • Enables dentists to administer less anesthesia for dental procedures
  • Lasers assist in recovery times.
  • Reduces the risk of bacteria when the tooth or gums are exposed.
  • Restricts blood loss during surgery.
  • Patients may not need sutures with the use of laser technology.

What type of laser surgery is used by dentists?

There are two primary lasers used in dental practices: hard tissue and soft tissue which determine wavelength depending on the type of tissue present in your mouth that needs removal.
  • Dentists use hard tissue lasers for your teeth. Hard tissue laser wavelengths are designed to cut through the calcium phosphate in bone and water. Hard lasers also enhance:
      • The need to administer anesthesia
      • Tooth sensitivity
      • Tooth reduction
  • Soft tissue lasers have a light wavelength which is more suitable for the absorption of water and hemoglobin. This type of wavelength penetrates soft tissue and encloses blood vessels after the procedure ends which is why you experience minimal bleeding.   Soft tissues also assist in the following:
      • Cosmetic surgery
      • Crown lengthening
      • Reshaping gums to enhance your smile
      • Removing tissue to accommodate dentures

Are lasers safe?

Dentists at Newbury Dental Group receive training on proper use and technique so that each patient receives the safest care possible. As our dentists perform any laser procedure, we will ask every patient to wear safety glasses to ensure further that we protect your eyes from the rays.

What should I expect after laser surgery?

Laser dentistry is a minimally-invasive surgery, and the post-operative experience is much different from dental procedures that use scalpels. Laser surgery reduces the amount of bleeding, and you will not have an open wound. With proper after-care instructions, it will minimalize the risk of infection since you will not have sutures. You will also not experience any discomfort making this type of procedure patient-friendly. Laser dentistry is a convenient and safe solution for many of the dental procedures you have today.  Ask us about laser availability the next time you are in for a dental visit.

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry has become more popular since its start in 1948 because of the complexities of oral health in children. Pediatric dentists today not only learn how to detect and treat early dental caries and pathology, but they also understand how to overcome dental anxiety and stress’s by using Tell-Show-Do method.  Our dentists at our Newbury Park location strive to make every patient’s dental visit comfortable and pleasant which includes proper oral hygiene routines and preventive care for children and young adults.  The American Dental Association recommends that every infant needs to be seen by a dentist by their first birthday. pediatric dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

Why is it important to care for baby teeth?

In the past, dentists and parents alike were not so concerned about maintenance of primary teeth because it thought that primary teeth have no influence on permanent adult teeth.  Over the last few decades, dentists have become more knowledgeable about the importance of children’s baby teeth. Early detection and prevention is crucial in maintaining oral and general health of the child. Allowing our dentists to care for your child’s primary dentition will prevent future problems from affecting the permanent dentition. Other benefits include:
  • Pediatric care prevents decay from spreading to adjacent teeth.
  • Regular check-ups prevent infection and gum disease.
  • Prevents misalignment after the loss of a baby tooth.
  • Dental care prevents shifting after a loss occurs which will affect adult teeth.
  • Early detection of dental issues often deters extensive orthodontic treatments and need of space maintainers.

What is kid-friendly dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry specializes in oral health care for infants, toddlers, children, and teenagers.  A dentist who works with children engage in many of the same activities as adults, but they provide more thorough attention in education and prevention for your children. Dentists want younger patients to feel at ease, so dental offices utilize kid-friendly colors, toys, and décor that makes them feel excited about their visits. Newbury Dental Group is a kid and family-friendly dental clinic. We want our clients to have an accessible location that fits all your family’s oral health needs.

How often should my child have a check-up?

The ADA recommends at least once a year, but it can be more if the child has poor oral hygiene, poor diet, or and is prone to caries.  Diet also plays a major role, too much sugar in the diet can affect the oral cavity and overall health in a very negative way. For instants, if the child has poor oral hygiene and yellow plaque is present, it is an indication that bacteria is present in the mouth and the child needs to come in for a cleaning and caries check. The build-up of plaque and debris will eventually lead to gum disease and bone loss and cavities. To prevent it from forming, you should bring your child in every six months to receive a check-up and cleaning which will include a fluoride treatment which protects the teeth from enamel loss, cavity damage, and gum disease.

What are the benefits of visiting a kid-friendly dental office?

Children often require different dental treatments than adults because they are continuously growing which means the teeth and jawline are still developing. So, there are benefits to visiting a kid-friendly dental office.
  • Kids receive targeted care that incorporates a variety of oral health techniques centered on the care of baby teeth and future permanent adult teeth.
  • Our dentists are trained to meet the needs of children of all ages from birth to adulthood.
  • Dentists receive training to communicate with children which ensures proper diagnosis.
Brushing two times a day, flossing once daily, and rinsing after eating sugary or acidic things will promote good oral health. Visiting us at Newbury Dental Group will also ensure that your child’s teeth receive the best treatment available.

invisalign

Invisalign Q & A

What should I know about the Invisalign procedure?

Dentists utilize the Invisalign system to shift and realign your teeth gently. First, we will need an impression to create a personalized aligner tray made from SmartTrack technology which securely snaps into place.   While every patient may require a specialized treatment plan, this utilizes the use of variable number of aligner trays which you will switch out every two weeks.  We understand that some patients believe that braces hinder your lifestyle which is why Invisalign is the ideal choice alterative than conventional braces is convenience and esthetics.

How long will I need to use aligners?

Treatment plans vary between six and eighteen months based on the results of a careful analysis. On average, patients use Invisalign for about twelve months. However, each plan takes into consideration each patient’s alignment requirements.

Who qualifies for Invisalign?

Patients who exhibit good oral health practices and have alignment problems typically qualify for this type of system. This is most suitable for patients who have the following:
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Mild Crowding and Spacing
  • Mild Gaps
  • Structural misalignment
  • Open Bite
  • Overbites
  • Under Bites
 

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

While more than five million patients have successfully used clear aligners and have obtained great results.  While people with extensive misaligned teeth such as: crossbite, extensive spacing, crowding, and severe rotation are not a good candidate for Invisalign and will benefit from conventual metal brace systems more.

Will I have to wear aligners permanently?

You are required to wear the aligners as much as possible throughout the day and night. For the most significant results, dentist regularly recommend that patients wear aligner trays at least 22 hours daily. You do not have to wear them when eating, drinking, or maintaining your teeth, but you will need to wear them while sleeping.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

There are critical differences between Invisalign and treatment plans that require more extensive movements that require conventual metal braces.  
  • The system is aesthetically-pleasing while metal braces often make people feel self-conscious about their appearance.
  • This does not use brackets instead use clear aligners to shift your teeth.  
  • Clear, plastic trays provide more comfort than metal brackets and wires.
  • The aligners comfortably snap on and off, making oral hygiene habits very easy to maintain, flossing doesn’t become an issue like old conventual metal braces.
  • Invisalign customizes each aligner based on the parameters of your gum line so that it increases usability and comfortability.
  • There are no more worries about a broken band or bracket occurring.
  • Parents can track their teen's compliance as Invisalign incorporates a blue aligner to follow how long the aligners are worn.
  • Invisalign provides a six-month guarantee as well as a refitting with another system if you are not satisfied with the results.
  You can schedule an appointment via our website. We will be happy to consult with you regarding the invisible aligners system as well as any other questions or concerns you may have.

Our dentists may utilize a variety of methods including inlays, overlays, crowns, implants, veneers, bridges, and dentures. Not only will you receive a dental makeover but will receive full restoration of function and oral health. Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction Q & A What are the benefits of a complete dental reconstruction? There are many benefits to a full dental reconstruction when performed at our Newbury Park office. Overall, it restores your oral health, renews the beauty of your smile, and renews full function such as eating, chewing, or speaking. Other benefits include:

  What occurs during a full dental reconstruction? Many patients opt for full mouth reconstructions to restore the function and look after experiencing chipping, fracturing, or wearing down of your natural teeth out. You may also have uncontrollable habits like grinding that require dental reconstruction. You may also be one of many patients who have medical conditions like mouth cancer, Dentinogenesis Imperfecta, or Amelogenesis which will require more comprehensive rehabilitation. Am I a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction? There are five types of people who want full mouth reconstruction treatments.
    • People who grind or clench their teeth which have worn down the structural integrity of your bite.

  When we perform a full mouth restoration, smile analysis is used to measure and construct your smile based on specifications like length, sized size which ensures for a more comfortable and beautiful smile.   How does Newbury Dental Group perform a Full Mouth Reconstruction? The most critical element of a full mouth reconstruction is to identify each patient’s bite position which requires the use of technology that predicts the appropriate alignment so that the teeth, joints, and jawline adjust accordingly. Once we locate the optimum positioning for your bite, you may need to wear an artificial device for several months to confirm that the location is in the correct positioning. We will also want to ensure your comfort. After this critical element, we will begin to reconstruct your new smile in just two dental visits. If you are looking for a solution to a painful jawline or worn or cracked teeth, a full mouth restoration may be the solution.

Dental Emergencies

People have dental emergencies during the most unlikely of activities from biting into a hard piece of candy to getting hurt while engaging in a favorite sport. Whether you sustain a severe injury or chip your tooth, it is critical that you know how to contact your dentist during times of emergencies. Reaching us soon after an injury will improve the chance of saving your tooth as opposed to waiting and losing it. It may also reduce your costs since it will avoid the need for more extensive restoration methods.   What can I do if I suffer an injury?   When an emergency occurs, it leaves you with all sorts of fears because of the what-ifs. Unlike other medical emergencies, dental issues are rarely life-threatening. If you experience dental distress, you should not panic as there are many techniques that repair and restore your teeth.   When you call our office, follow the medical advice that our staff gives you as it will sustain you until your appointment time. Here are a few other things you can do as well to enhance recovery.
  • If you crack your tooth, rinse your mouth out and use a cold compress.
  • If you have lost an adult tooth, keep the roots moist. You can lightly push it back into place or put it in a cup of milk or an OTC product to preserve it. Remember that time is critical for this type of injury, so contact our office quickly to receive emergency care.

Dentures

For someone who has lost one or more teeth, dentures provide a long-term resolution for your oral needs. Our dental staff at Newbury Dental Group offer dentures as a means of overcoming damage from injury, disease, or illness. Not only will dentures renew your smile, but it will also restore function after your tooth loss.

Denture Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures come in three types of prosthetic devices: Partial dentures, Complete denture, and Overdenture. Each of them restores normal tooth function like speaking or eating; while serves as a great alternative where Dental Bridges or Implants are not an option.  

What happens during an appointment?

Our dentists carefully assess each patient during the first appointment to determine a plan for treatment. First, we will analyze your candidacy for a partial denture, complete denture, or implant retained overdenture.  Your dentist will first perform a comprehensive examination for caries and periodontal disease prior to taking molds and extract any teeth that are non-restorable or have extensive gum disease. If any extraction were warranted, you will need some recovery time before the molding occurs since the extraction site has to fully heal to ensure accurate impression of supporting tissue. If you do not need any, we will create an impression during the first visit which hastens the time in which you receive your dentures. When you return for your second appointment, bite registration will be taken if it couldn’t be determined on first initial visit.  In addition, teeth size, shape and color will be selected during this visit as well. During the third appointment, teeth try-in in wax will be tried in the mouth to ensure that teeth line up appropriately, and it’s the last chance to make any changes by the patient.  At the following appointment the dentures will be delivered. Your dentist will go over with you regarding, long-term maintenance, and after-care.

What is a Partial Denture?

Partial dentures are considered one type of removable prosthesis, used to replace missing teeth when fixed prosthesis (bridges, implants) are not an option.  This type of prosthetic is most useful when some of your natural teeth still present to be used as anchors to stabilize and provide adequate retention to the denture.  There are three types of Partial Denture: acrylic, metal combination and valplast. Discuss with your dentist to see which type of removal prosthesis best meets you needs.   

What is a Complete Denture?

Complete Dentures are considered another type of removable prosthesis, used to replace all teeth in one arch or both arches.  This type of prosthetic is most useful when no other of form a prosthetic is an option. Complete Denture have the advantage of being able to restore function and create a new beautiful smile.  Complete dentures have the benefit of being able to create a smile makeover with no restrictions on color, shape, and length unlike partial dentures.

What is an overdenture?

Overdentures are complete denture that are fastened to the jaw using implants.  Overdenture fall under both fixed and removable prosthesis; your dentist will decide whether fixed-screw retained overdenture or removable-snappy type Overdentures will be indicated case by case.  Each type has a different advantage, ask your dentist which type best meet your needs. Overdentures are best indicated for patients that are tired of their loose dentures due to poor bone anatomy and bone loss over the years.  Overdentures greatly provide stability and retention without the need for denture adhesive to secure them into place. Patients that are interested in overdentures first need to take a CT scan to confirm illegibility for dental implant.  Same criteria for implant placement applies here. After confirming that the patient is a good candidate for implants, four implants will be placed in the maxillary arch and two or four implants will be placed in the mandible. Once the implants have osseointegrated into the bone, a lock and key (locator and housing) for snappy type overdenture will be placed in the denture and into the implant to secure them together.   Thus, the dentures will become very stable and no more denture adhesive will be necessary. In addition, the Maxillary denture will no longer have the need for acrylic to extend onto the hard palate to create a seal. Thus overdentures will feel a lot more comfort and stability to obtain a more natural organic look and feel. Overdentures are easily removed every night for maintenance and upkeep. Eating steaks with dentures can no longer be a problem with overdetures!   If you are missing any of your natural teeth or suffer from decay, you know how difficult it is to perform essential activities like eating, working, or engaging in social functions. It can significantly affect your mood because you lack confidence in your smile. Dentures, therefore, are an excellent choice that enables you to restore your smile while boosting your self-esteem.

Veneers

Veneers serve to enhance your smile aesthetically and structurally in which dentists utilize veneers to reshape or repair teeth from chips, fractures, or discolorations. Dentists highly recommend the use of veneers for patients who feel insecure about their smiles and always wanted a brighter more confidence smile.

Veneer Q & A

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a thin, durable layer of material made from porcelain, composite, or ceramics which are custom-made professionally based on size and color specifications. Our dentists then bond the veneers to your teeth to create a structurally-sound smile. They not only fix your smile, but surfaces are stain-resistant to many of the substances that contribute to staining like coffee, tea, and wine.

Why should I choose veneers?

There are several reasons to choose veneers.
  • To enhance your smile cosmetically
  • To repair crooked or misshapen teeth
  • To correct discoloration or staining
  • To reshape teeth because of sizing
  • To fill in spacing
  • To fix aging or chipping

How does Newbury Dental Group attach veneers?

Veneers can be performed typically in two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will evaluate your smile using smile analysis to create a natural and beautiful smile that you can be proud off.  Once smile analysis is complete your dentist will prepare and shape you tooth for the veneer and impressions are taken same day. When you return for your second appointment, we will clean your teeth and then cement is used to adhere the veneers into place. Afterward, we will finish by cleaning and polishing to remove excess cement around the veneers and give you a beautiful and natural smile.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers are made of a durable substance that is long-lasting which is why they are the ideal choice for people who have misaligned or broken teeth. Dentists prefer porcelain over other materials as it is one of the most durable materials available. Patients who choose porcelain are also less likely to experience discoloration.
  • Porcelain veneers most closely imitate natural teeth.
  • Porcelain will not stain.
  • Veneers require much less tooth preparation compare to crowns.
  • Veneers interact well with your gum line.

How do I care for veneers?

Veneers do not require any special hygiene routines or any special care.   Regular hygiene habits like brushing and flossing is adequate in maintenance and longevity.  

Can I reverse the process?

You cannot reverse the process of veneers since it requires removal of a small reduction of the teeth’s enamel layer to make room for the veneer to be cemented completely flush over the tooth. You will also more than likely experience the need for a replacement at least once in your lifetime due to normal wear and tear of your natural teeth as time goes on.

Am I a candidate for this type of dental restoration?

Most people are candidates for veneers. Dentists do not recommend this type of treatment for some patients who have extensive damage from gum disease or grinding as it heightens the risk of breaking and chipping. It is vital that you undergo an examination to assess and validate your candidacy. Even if you are not a candidate for veneers, a dental assessment will identify other procedures you qualify for based on the state of your oral health.

Dental Implants

If you have lost teeth and want a longer-lasting solution than crowns or bridges, you can choose dental implants are viable option in many situations. Unlike fixed prosthesis (crowns and bridges) or removable prosthetics (partial or complete dentures), dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth without the need of ever touching or compromising any adjacent teeth for support. Our dentists at Newbury dental group fasten the implants directly to the jawbone which restores the mouth’s function and features. Not only will your teeth look natural, but your speech and eating patterns will resume because of the firm connection between the bone and the dental implant.

Implants Q & A

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are considered a form of fixed prosthetic used to replace the missing teeth to provide a natural appearance and function. A loss of a tooth may result from gum disease, severely decayed tooth, fractured teeth, failing root-canals that is no restorable.  Resulting in feeling of insecure about your smile. Dental implants serve as the most advantageous alternative to dentures and bridges for function, convenience and cosmetic.  

Who is the ideal candidate for an implant procedure?

At Newbury Dental Group, we utilize the newest technologies using Cone Bean Imagining that is available at our state of the art facility along with our highly trained doctors to evaluate bone density, height and width to guarantee your candidacy for dental implants.  There are certain criteria have to be met before the patient is eligible for dental implants; first no active gum disease maybe be present. Secondly, uncontrolled diabetes will impede in healing process and will make the patient poor candidate for dental implants. Patients with uncontrolled diabetes will have to first get their diabetes under-control with the help of the patient’s physician.  We want to assist you in any way possible, so our dentists at Newbury Dental Group happily consult with our patients to ensure compatibility.  

What materials are used to make dental implants?

Most labs construct implants of titanium because the body readily accepts it as a compatible alternative for your natural teeth. It is also a material that is durable and sustainable, but more importantly, the use of titanium creates a stable environment for osseointegration to occur. Time of osseointegration will vary based on site of implant placement and bone density.  Once the implant has fully osseointegrated into the alveolar bone, the implant can be loaded with an abutment and crown to restore function and create a beautiful, and fully-functioning set of teeth.  

What will a patient experience during a dental implant procedure?

Our dental staff first must evaluate and prepare the site for the dental implant placement which may require teeth extraction with bone graft augmentation to conserve bone height, thickness and density.  Additionally, if not enough bone height present, addition of bone maybe requires through guided bone regeneration or sinus augmentation depending on the extent bone deficiency. Once the implant site has meet all the requirements, the implant can be placed in the desired area.  The implant is placed into the jawbone (alveolar bone) under local anesthesia with little to no pain during and after implant placement. Once implant has osseointegrated into the alveolar bone which generally can take three to four months based on location and bone density, you are ready for the second stage of the implant process, you will return to our office for uncovery and have impressions taken to fabricate your implant crown or bridge depending on the case. Moreover, it’s very important to maintain proper oral hygiene and routine cleanings to ensure longevity of your implant.  Upon completion, you will have a beautiful smile that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.  

Is this procedure safe?

Combining today’s technology and our highly-skilled specialists at Newbury Dental Group, dental implant surgery is one of the safest procedures performed today. Your body readily accepts dental implants, so there is little to no risk to your oral health or overall health. During a consultation, it is essential to ask questions if you need additional information about the procedure or the materials we use. We strive to provide excellent service, so please contact us so that we can assist in addressing your questions or concerns.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dentists most commonly use prosthetically-made dental crowns and bridges to cover both natural teeth and implants. Crowns are widely used to cover teeth or implants after damage occurs. As we cement them into place, they also protect your teeth from future damage.

dental crowns and bridge

Crown Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Our clinic uses crowns that are porcelain, gold, or a combination of materials. The most common material used is porcelain because of its longevity and resistance to discoloration. Because they are made to fit your natural teeth, they restore your smile both structurally and aesthetically.

Why do I need dental crowns?

There are many reasons that doctors recommend crowns. Most commonly, they include:
  • Restoration after a patient experiences a cracked or chipped tooth
  • To support a bridge
  • To safeguard a root canal after treatment
  • After a patient receives a dental implant
  • To cover discoloration.
  • Preserve teeth from future fractures.
  • Used cosmetically to reshape a tooth
  • As a last resort for fillings when not enough tooth remains
For patients who are missing more than one tooth, dentists employ the use of bridges to prevent movement which will cause a misalignment to occur. Misalignment will also cause a bite to deform. Dental bridges use existing surrounding teeth as anchors for support to replace missing teeth to obtain a beautiful healthy smile without the use of dental implants or major surgeries.  

Am I a candidate for dental crowns?

After your exam, our dental staff will analyze your oral health to determine your candidacy for crowns. It is a safe procedure, so many people who are not candidates for fillings opt for crowns.
  • Patients often receive crowns after root canals to prevent bacterial infections, protect the structural integrity, and enhance the strength of your bite.
  • Patients who suffer from damage like chips or cracks benefit significantly from a crown procedure.
  • Crowns are ideal cosmetically as they restore your vibrant smile.

What is the procedure for a dental crown?

The first thing we will do is clean and shape your tooth. We will then remove a minute amount of enamel to create a perfect fitting. As we will custom make your crowns, you will receive a temporary acrylic crown to protect the tooth. When ready, we will bond your crown with cement that will ensure longevity for many years.  

How long should I expect my crown to last?

  The longevity of a crown differs because of oral health and hygiene routines. Generally, they last for decades with regular maintenance and dental check-ups. During routine exams, our dentists will consult with you about any developing issues as well as proper after-care techniques.  

Bridge Q & A

Dentists and patients often refer to bridges as a fixed prosthesis which are permanently cemented into place.  Bridges are essential for following reasons including:
  • Supports the structure of natural teeth when implants are not an option
  • Replaces one or more teeth.
  • Fits in between teeth or implants to prohibit movement.
If you would like more information on crowns or bridge techniques performed at Newbury Dental Group, contact us here or call our office to set up an appointment so that we can assess your dental needs and customize a treatment plan.

Dental Check-Ups

Dental Check-Ups

Seeing your dentist is a vital component of your oral health and hygiene, which is why our dentists believe in proper hygiene and routine check-ups are essential to your oral needs.  At each appointment, we will take the time to fully explain the benefits of cleaning, treatment, and preventive care so that you have the knowledge you need to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.  

Dental Check-Up Q & A

How often do I need a check-up?

The American Dental Association endorses dental guidance as the best indicator as to how many times you need an examination or cleaning. For the most part, patients with good oral health require a dental exam and cleaning as little as twice a year depending on necessity. Patients who have more complex dental issues may need to see our dentists more frequently. Our primary goal is to evaluate patients individually to help formulate a strategy to fit each need.

What are the benefits of a dental cleaning?

Even with regular brushing and flossing, it is easy to miss tartar and plaque build-up which creates an environment for bacteria to flourish. Dental cleanings prevent gum disease and tooth loss, but more importantly, it removes stains and enhances your smile. Benefits include:
  • Prevents gingivitis which causes inflammation and bleeding gums.
  • Cleanings lower the risk of high dental bills because they prevent cavities and gum disease which leads to decay and requires more extensive dental treatments.
  • Cleaning removes stains from soda, tea, wine, or inhalants which helps maintain fresh breath and healthy, white teeth.

What will I experience during an exam and cleaning?

Newbury Dental Group wants you to feel comfortable during your appointment, so we utilize a variety of tools to deliver accurate, high-quality care.
  • During your check-up, you will have an exam and cleaning which includes a fluoride treatment. Not only will it prevent cavities, but it is resistant to build-up and sugar-decay which will improve your oral health. The access to fluoride is vital to younger patients, but it also helps during the aging process as it slows down decay.
  • You will also receive instruction on appropriate oral hygiene techniques like brushing and flossing which help to avoid serious dental problems.
  • Cancer screenings are essential parts of your check-up. Our dentists look for both precancerous lesions as well as cancerous growth as research shows the earlier the detection the higher the chance of your recovery.
  • Once you receive a cleaning, your dentist will apply a thin application of sealant which will help to prevent tooth decay. Not only will the coating protect a tooth’s enamel, but it will also block the buildup of plaque.

What tools do you use during a check-up?

Typical dental tools include mirrors, burs, and probes which most patients have experience because of their routine use in dental care. You may also need an x-ray which will consist of digital imaging and an intra-oral camera.
  • Dental tools enhance imaging and provide excellent sources for accuracy and detection.
  • Our hygienists also use a replaceable saliva ejector which slowly removes spit while also avoiding the spread of disease.
