Comprehensive General Dentistry

Both the American Dental Association and your caring Smiles on the Hudson team recommend regular check-ups and dental exams. These appointments are proven to decrease your chance of experiencing dental problems and other health issues.

What to expect
During a typical dental examination, your Edgewater dentist evaluates several factors, including:

  • An assessment of your medical history for any potential health risks or previous conditions
  • Evaluation of your teeth and gums using an intraoral camera
  • Digital x-rays to get a greater insight into the condition of your mouth and jaw
  • Oral cancer screening
  • A thorough cavity check using Diagnodent technology

Our team uses innovative dental technology to see clear images of the inside of your mouth. We share these with you so you can see what we see. We then discuss any findings in both a visual and verbal manner.

Dr. Roytberg and our team make regular exams the first line of defense for any dental problem, whether it is gum disease, decay, or orthodontic issues. We can assess, diagnose, and treat these common issues all under one roof.

Oral Hygiene Maintenance

Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is one of the best ways you can protect your smile. But did you know that even with the most thorough hygiene habits, plaque and tartar could still build up? If this plaque is not removed it can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and, in time, more serious dental problems.

Hygiene Habits
Regular hygiene appointments are a great partner for your everyday dental habits. During these visits, our skilled hygienists focus on:

  • Professionally removing plaque and tartar
  • Protecting your smile from dangerous bacteria
  • Assessing your hygiene routine
  • Providing kind and informative advice
  • Creating a custom hygiene routine for your family
  • Sealants for adults and children

At Smiles on the Hudson, we recommend hygiene visits every six months. However, if there is decay or gum disease present, we may suggest more frequent visits to alleviate these problems.

Without a doubt, regular cleanings and advice from your professional hygienist could save you both time and money, plus months of discomfort.

Oral Hygiene Maintenance

Preventing any potential dental issues is right at the top of the list of priorities. One common issue we see is tooth cavities. Many younger patients experience cavities due to decay taking shape in the pits and fissures of their tooth’s surface. Our family dentists in Edgewater, NJ are able to protect teeth susceptible to cavities (especially on the back molars, as they can be more difficult to brush) by using dental sealants.

What are sealants?
A sealant is a thin, tooth-colored coating that is applied to the surface of your tooth. It creates a protective layer, which fills in gaps and grooves, leaving you with a smooth tooth surface. This prevents debris from becoming stuck and makes it easier to brush your teeth. Therefore, lowing the risk of tooth decay and cavities.

The sealant process is very simple and non-invasive:

1. Your dentist simply cleans the at-risk teeth and paints on the sealant.

2. Once dried, the tooth’s surface becomes smooth and is thus easier to brush and protect.

All sealants are reviewed during your family’s regular check-ups and will last a long time if cared for properly.

Children's and Orthodontic Dentistry

We are pleased to welcome patients of all ages. Our comfortable office provides a family-friendly atmosphere and offers dentistry designed around your child’s individual needs.

Our dentists have experience providing dental exams and hygiene advice for infants, adolescents, and teenagers. As your family’s dental partner, our focus is to help your child take their first steps to improved dental health in a fun and friendly manner.

Your child’s appointment
We’ll add a little more emphasis on education so your child has the tools to develop successful oral habits. However, this won’t consist of lectures but rather fun and informal conversations.

As with adults, it is recommended for children to receive a dental exam every six months and for parents to be involved in their oral hygiene habits. During the exam, both parent and child can ask any questions and discuss their concerns.

No matter what your child needs to feel comfortable, we do our best to cater to those needs. Whether they want to hold your hand or prefer to cuddle their teddy, we’ll help make their visit positive and enjoyable.

Sedation Dentistry

If you have avoided the dentist due to anxiety, a previous bad experience, or you struggle to relax when sitting in the dentist chair, you are not alone! Dental anxiety is very common amongst Americans and has had a detrimental effect on our nation’s oral health.

At Smiles on the Hudson, dental fear doesn’t need to result in you avoiding the dentist. Rather, you can enjoy the benefit of sedation dentistry and brush your fears aside.

How can we help?
Our office ensures you feel comfortable with the use of conscious sedation. This safe option comes in the form of oral medication and is specially designed to make you:

  • Feel relaxed
  • Increase your comfort
  • Block possible pain
  • Recover quickly so you can return to your everyday activities
  • Enjoy your visit to the dentist

It may seem hard to believe, but our patients report feeling at ease and calm during even complex procedures. If you choose to use sedation, our caring team is with you every step of the way and can answer any questions you may have.

Now you can experience a calming and worthwhile visit, free of anxiety or stress!

Root Canals

When a cavity reaches the nerve of your tooth, it becomes infected and filled with bacteria. This can happen due to extreme decay or trauma affecting a specific tooth. The good news is a root canal can repair and save your natural tooth with minimal discomfort.

You may greatly benefit from root canal therapy if you are experiencing some of the following symptoms:

  • Tooth pain
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration of your tooth

The process
The root canal process can be performed with the help of modern technology, so you experience a more comfortable treatment in a faster turnaround time.

To begin, our doctor extracts the pulp and cleans away all bacteria within the tooth. Then, the space left is filled with a modern dental material to restore your tooth back to its full function.

At Smiles on the Hudson, we can assess if you are a candidate for an improved smile through a root canal treatment!

Mouth Guards

There are two main types of mouthguards: night guards and sports guards. Both are custom designed and serve specific purposes.

We provide comfortable, custom-made mouth guards to help prevent bite issues such as TMJ disorders, to protect your smile, and to align your teeth. A painful or misaligned bite can lead to more complex dental problems taking shape.

Night guards: These mouth guards prevent bruxism (or teeth grinding) while you sleep. They can also be used to help with TMJ and correct a misaligned bite.

Sports guards: The American Dental Association recommends wearing a sports guard whenever participating in contact sports to protect your smile. These mouthguards are customized to comfortably fit over your teeth and prevent injury.

Please speak to your dentist about the various mouth guard options during your next visit.

Laser Dentistry

For many, the sound of dental drills kept them away from the dentist. For others, it was the thought of sitting for a long time in the dental chair.

Well, our team has moved forward and replaced noisy drills, removed uncomfortable procedures, and increased the accuracy of care with the help of laser dentistry.

What do we use lasers for?
These dental lasers use innovative technology to provide the highest standard of care with faster recovery times. Lasers help with various treatments, including:

  • Periodontics
  • Gum contouring
  • Bacterial removal
  • Endodontics

In addition to being a minimally invasive solution, laser dentistry cuts down chair-time, provides instant results, and allows us to avoid (in most cases) anesthesia.

We have no doubt that you’ll be impressed by our modern technology and detail-oriented care.
