General dentistry keeps Whiting smiles healthy
At Crestwood Family Dental in Whiting, NJ, general dentistry is never one-size-fits-all. Dr. Thomas Sargent and the team apply a warm, personalized approach to deliver treatment that fits your smile and your lifestyle.
Keep it clean
Regular professional cleaning is essential to remove bacteria, plaque, and hardened tartar from areas you cannot see or reach with home care. We may recommend preventive treatment such as topical fluoride to strengthen enamel, or dental sealant to reduce the risk of cavities by up to 60 percent. At these visits, the dentist is vigilant for signs of problems including tooth fractures and oral cancers. Addressing these issues early avoids discomfort and saves you time and money.
Solutions for dental problems
Despite the best hygiene program, oral disease or injury can occur. We offer a full range of services to restore appearance and function, including:
- Fillings – Composite resin material is strong and durable, suitable for front teeth and molars. These fillings blend beautifully with natural tooth structure.
- Crowns – When an area of damage or decay is too large to support a filling, a porcelain crown provides strength and protection.
- Root canals – Even a tiny fracture or cavity can allow harmful bacterial to reach the pulp chamber of a tooth. Infection builds pressure and irritates nerves. Root canal therapy eliminates the source of pain and saves the tooth.
- Extractions – In some situations, extraction is the best choice for your oral health and overall wellness. We handle most extractions in-house, and provide referral to a trusted specialist for complex cases.
- Dentures – For the patient who is missing some or all teeth, dentures remain a time-tested solution. We design partial and full dentures that look great and fit comfortably.
At Crestwood Family Dental, there is no need to feel nervous about treatment. You may request soothing nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation for a relaxed experience.
