Comprehensive cosmetic dentistry in Manalapan NJ

We proudly offer a variety of dental appliances in our New Jersey office. Each appliance targets a different area of treatment, based on your individual needs. Some of the many appliances we offer include:

Bruxism

Dentist in Manalapan New Jersey
Our team is committed to preventive dentistry, so we are always on the alert for symptoms that could lead to chronic difficulties like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This is a common problem that involves the joints used in chewing, swallowing, and talking. TMD can lead to localized symptoms or seemingly unrelated headaches and earaches. One of the first culprits we look for during regular examinations is bruxism. Bruxism is the name for forceful grinding and/or clenching of your teeth. Grinding is usually noisy; clenching is silent. Either can create so much stress on the jaw joints that patients experience serious and even debilitating muscle spasms and pain, common symptoms of TMD.

Many individuals are unaware that they “brux,” so we look for telltale signs that include:

  • worn-down teeth
  • sensitive teeth
  • chipped or broken teeth
  • cracked or loose restorations
  • scarring of the tongue and cheeks

Although earlier attempts to cure bruxism have ranged from sound alarms, electrical stimulation, psychotherapy, hypnosis, and drugs, we can now recommend simple, effective dental solutions. Some act like a crutch to rest the jaw joints while others encourage a natural reflex that stops your jaw automatically to protect your teeth and jaw joints. With all the options available today, there is no reason to suffer with TMJ / TMD pain.

Snap On Smile

Snap-On Smile in Manalapan NJ
Snap-On Smile is an affordable, non-invasive and completely reversible, cosmetic removable arch that can easily and painlessly enhance your smile. The Snap-on Smile is a temporary smile design, made out of acrylic, that snaps over your natural teeth.

It can be used for special events, such as weddings or graduations, or it can be used to “try on” a smile design to see if it works. Or it can be used as a low-cost smile makeover to cover an imperfect smile while you save up money to get a permanent restoration.



Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring and Sleep Apnea treatment NJ
Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Do you snore at night? Sleep apnea, a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep, lasts long enough so that one or more breaths are missed, and such episodes occur repeatedly throughout sleep. Common signs and symptoms include gasping, choking or silences during sleep, sudden awakening during sleep, loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. Not only can sleep apnea affect your energy levels throughout your day, but chronic sleep apnea carries potentially dangerous health affects. Learn more.
