Dental Fillings

Our team offers dental fillings made from several dental materials so you can choose what fits you best! Materials for modern dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds, called reins, designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth. Dental fillings can be used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, or on the back teeth depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay.

At East Madison Dental Dumont, direct fillings are fillings placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit, with options including silver amalgam, glass ionomers, resin ionomers, and composite (resin) fillings. We'll help you select the best solution for your smile!

This treatment is known to be effective in preventing cavities, tooth decay, and plaque buildup. Depending your doctor’s recommendation based on your oral health needs, you may visit our Dumont dental office for a mineral treatment every 3, 6, or 12 months.

Nightguards for Bruxism & TMJ

If you often wake up with jaw pain, earaches, or headaches, or if you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth, you may have a common condition called “bruxism.” Many people do not even know that they grind their teeth, as it often occurs when one is sleeping. If not corrected, bruxism can lead to broken teeth, cracked teeth, or even tooth loss.

There is an easy, non-invasive treatment for bruxism: nightguards. Nightguards are an easy way to prevent the wear and damage associated with bruxism. Custom-made by your dentist from hard-soft material to fit your teeth, a nightguard is inserted over your top or bottom arch to prevent grinding and contact with opposing teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth has a deep crack or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. Left untreated, an abscess may form, resulting in pain, swelling, and infected tissue. This can not only injure your jawbones, but it can result in the infection spreading to affect your total-body wellness!

Root canal treatment involves 1-3 visits to our office in Dumont, NJ. During this visit, your doctor will gently remove the affected tissue. The interior of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed, then filled with a dental composite. If your tooth has extensive decay, your doctor may suggest placing a crown to strengthen and protect the tooth from breaking. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are designed to provide superior protection against cavities and decay. Sealants are crafted from plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay.

Sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth as a preventive measure against tooth decay after the permanent teeth have erupted. However, adults can also receive sealants on healthy teeth. Because every smile has unique needs, your dentist will recommend dental sealants on a case-by-case basis.
