Advanced Dental Care
In addition to a range of general dental care options, our experienced dentists provide unique advanced services and treatments that meet your individual needs. Please read through the information provided below to see how these options may benefit you.
To make an appointment, please contact Dental Professionals of Fair Lawn. Some procedures can be combined with other treatments in a single visit for your convenience.
Many patients have anxiety or fear when it comes to the dentist. This fear can often lead to poor oral hygiene and serious dental problems from lack of regular dental appointments. We offer sedation dentistry techniques that can help relax you throughout the treatment, giving you a virtually painless, anxiety-free experience. We may also recommend this option for patients who need to have multiple treatments in a single visit.
Temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ Disorder or TMD, can cause a clicking or popping of the jaw, headaches, difficulty eating, chronic facial pain, and other debilitating symptoms. Our dental professionals are able to assess your condition, and recommend an appropriate TMJ/TMD treatment plan.
If you often have restless nights and frequently snore or gasp for air while you sleep, it is possible you have sleep apnea, a potentially life-threatening condition. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can create a customized sleep appliance that helps you to breathe more easily while you sleep. These appliances can eliminate the need for surgical intervention or a CPAP machine.
If you suspect you or a loved one are suffering from sleep apnea, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Similar to the sleep appliance used to treat patients with sleep apnea, our dental professionals are able to create a mouth guard-like appliance specific to your individual needs, so snoring can be eliminated or reduced. These appliances are designed to open the air passages for a more positive flow of air while sleeping, and they are customized for the most comfortable fit possible.
With advancements in dental technology, we are now able to offer laser dentistry as an option for many common dental procedures. Laser dentistry allows for virtually pain-free treatment that is often more efficient than traditional methods. This innovative approach to dentistry also helps patients to have faster recovery times following major procedures. Laser dentistry also reduces the risk of bleeding and infection during treatment. Laser dental procedures are often very useful in treatments for gum disease and gum reshaping, offering a non-surgical alternative to restore the health and appearance of your gums.
Advanced/Non-Surgical Periodontal Care
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is caused by excessive plaque and bacteria buildup, typically leading to sensitive, red, swollen gums. Later stages of the disease can result in loose teeth, bleeding gums, tooth decay, and other symptoms. Gum disease can also lead to more serious overall health risks if not treated, including stroke and heart disease. With advanced periodontal treatments, we are able to help reduce the effects of gum disease and prevent the progression of the condition. At Dental Professionals of Fair Lawn, we use non-surgical methods to treat periodontal disease. Using scaling and root planing, we can remove pockets of bacteria and disinfect your gums without the need for surgery. Plus, our laser techniques can provide a good seal between the teeth and gums in a quick, virtually painless treatment. The laser can also help to promote regrowth of healthy tissue in affected areas, which can ultimately improve your oral health.
Contact us today to schedule an appointment for non-surgical periodontal care.
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you live an active life, depending on the physical activities and sports you participate in, you could potentially be at risk for a traumatic mouth injury. Contact sports such as football, wrestling, and hockey can be made safer with one of our customized athletic mouth guards. Even if your preferred form of exercise is not a contact sport, a mouth guard can be beneficial for other activities, such as baseball or running. Our advanced mouth guards are specifically designed for the contours of your mouth and teeth in order to provide the best fit possible.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Facial Fillers
For patients looking to enhance and renew their facial appearance, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and a variety of injectable dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation. These minimally invasive treatments can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and/or add volume to facial features such as the lips and cheeks. There is typically no downtime necessary after injectable treatments, and most patients are able to resume normal daily routines right after the procedure. Injectable facial rejuvenation can be a great way to compliment your beautiful smile!
