child dental braces

Your Child and Dental Braces

Today, with the great healthcare that’s available to people in the United States — including dental care from Creative Dental in New Jersey — many parents are always alert for any health issues that might arise in their children. After all, how many times have you heard that early care provides a better outcome? As a parent, you want only the best for your child, so you want to be on top of any issues that might arise.

Does Your Child Need Dental Braces?

Children seem to grow in spurts and drips. Sometimes it might seem like your child’s limbs, and body is proportionate to each other. At other times, though, it can seem like their legs and arms are too long for their body, and you might wonder if they’ll ever grow into them.

Teeth that appear to be too big

The same can be said about their teeth as well. This is especially true as your child’s permanent teeth come in. As a parent, you likely look at your child’s teeth and wonder if they are too big for his or her mouth. Will there be enough space for all of the permanent teeth that are supposed to erupt? This is a real concern for many parents given the large size of their child’s permanent teeth in comparison to the baby teeth.

Crooked teeth

Another issue that parents often fear is that their child’s permanent teeth are crooked as they become visible in their mouth. Perhaps you have an overbite or an underbite, and you see evidence that your child might have inherited this trait from you. For many parents, the front teeth are more of a concern when it comes to their crookedness. However, even if your child’s bottom teeth are crooked, it can cause you to become concerned.

Gaps between the teeth

Gaps between your child’s teeth are also a cause for concern for many parents. This is especially true if the gap in question is between his or her front teeth because it is more visible. Not only do you as a parent notice it more readily but you are also aware that your child’s peers and other important people in their lives will notice it as well. Being able to determine if a gap in your child’s teeth will close up on its own as your child grows and matures can be difficult to determine without the proper training and experience in dental issues.

Your childhood experiences

If you are like most parents, you want your child to have everything you did not. Maybe your parents didn’t think you needed dental braces or weren’t able to afford them. You would then be more determined than ever for your child to get the dental care he or she needs.

One of the best things you can do to ensure that your child has the care they need — including dental braces, if necessary — is to keep to the checkup schedule that is recommended. For many children, this is every six months. During those visits, Creative Dental will access the possibility of your child needing dental braces.

luxury dental services

What You Need to Know about Luxury Dental Services

What do you think of when you hear the word “luxury”? Most people might envision a soothing spa, a hot stone massage, or a day spent at the salon. Luxury services extend far beyond just pampering the outside of your body; luxury services can be applied to dental treatments too! Luxury dental services can enhance your experience at the dentist.

What does luxury mean?

It is easy to think of examples of things that are luxuries, but what does luxury mean? At its simplest definition, luxury is something that is not essential but provides comfort and pleasure. Understanding this, it is easy to see how luxury dental services are important to creating a positive experience at the dentist’s office.

The link between luxury and cosmetic dentistry

While having a cavity filled is not luxurious, it may be necessary. However, there are plenty of dental services that do provide pleasure. Welcome to the world of cosmetic dentistry! Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your smile, something that definitely can give you great joy – and a boost in confidence.

You can bask in the luxury of a renewed smile with the following cosmetic dental services:

It’s important to note that all cosmetic dental procedures are not as “comfortable” as other luxury services like a massage, a hot shave, or a pedicure. The luxury here is that, at the end of the day, these services do give us pleasure. Studies show that smiling and having a smile that makes you happy, can boost your self-confidence and your mood. While a teeth whitening may not cause as much anxiety as an appointment for dental implants, Creative Dental aims to create the most relaxing environment for such services.

Stress, relaxation, and dentistry: Oh my!

Many individuals experience anxiety while at their dental appointments. The American Dental Association acknowledges that visits to the dentist can cause major anxiety, and they recommend that dentists actively employ relaxation techniques to soothe their patients. Luxury dental services address this issue directly.

With sedation dentistry, the focus is on relaxation. The dentists at Creative Dental offer multiple levels of sedation to ensure that your appointment is both a positive experience and relaxing experience.

  • Oral sedation
  • IV sedation
  • Full sedation under the supervision of a physician

Local anesthetics are used in connection with the sedation allowing you to feel comfortable and relaxed whether you have one or three procedures scheduled.

How can Creative Dental help you?

Are considering a Smile Makeover or other luxury cosmetic dental services? Perhaps you’ve always wondered about teeth whitening, but never had the time? Perhaps the one-hour teeth whitening is right for you. Contact us, and we can get you on the path to the perfect smile.

family dentistry

Is Family Dentistry Right For You?

Between school drop-offs, soccer practices, rehearsals, and driving to the office, the average family spends 17,600 minutes driving each year. Yikes! Between work and school, there are many commitments, but driving to medical appointments does account for some of that logged driving time. If you have children, consider family dentistry as a way to consolidate everyone’s dental care under one roof.

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry refers to a dental practice that focuses on the whole family; they do not focus on just one age group. With family dentistry, dentists and their staff are knowledgeable and trained to treat dental conditions from babies to seniors.

Oral health is important to both pediatric patients and adult patients alike. However, the needs of each age group vary quite a bit. Family dentists understand this.

Pediatric dental care

Maybe you have a teething baby, or perhaps baby just sprouted his first tooth – yay! The American Dental Association recommends that a baby should start seeing the dentist within six months of that first tooth popping up, preferably before his first birthday. Routine dental appointments for babies and children are important because:

  • Parents can learn how to care for baby teeth, including how and when to introduce fluoride toothpaste.
  • Toddler’s teeth can be examined, cleaned, checked for any problem areas. Fluoride treatments help protect children’s teeth from future decay.
  • Dentists can also address issues connected to thumb sucking.
  • Cavities can be caught early before too much damage is done: If you are concerned about your child’s cavities, speak with your dentist. Sometimes the solution is as easy as avoiding sugar drinks, juices, and candy.
  • Preventative treatments such as sealants can be performed.
  • As children start to lose their baby teeth, dentists can monitor the growth of adult teeth.
  • Dentists can refer younger patients to orthodontists if necessary.

The earlier children begin to see the dentist; the easier future appointments will be. Bringing children to routine dental appointments instills good oral hygiene habits that will benefit kids for years to come.

Adult dental care

While adults do not have to worry about losing baby teeth, adults do have their dental concerns. Some adult dental concerns fall under general dentistry, but a great deal does fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry.

Why are so many adult patients concerned with cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening, are needed as a result of the wear and tear on teeth as an individual age. Many adult beverages such as coffee or red wine can stain teeth; children typically do not have this problem as their drinks (water, milk) do not normally stain teeth.

Adult dental care includes:

  • Routine exams and cleanings
  • General dentistry including extractions, dentures, root canals, crowns, bridges, and TMJ therapy
  • Cosmetic dentistry including teeth whitening, veneers, composite fillings, and crown lengthening

Creative Dental is here to help the entire family

Whether you have a baby with one tooth or a seven-year-old with missing front teeth, family dentistry can address the needs of your entire family. For family dental care services, contact Creative Dental today.

types of mouthwash

Mouthwash 101: Types of Mouthwash

If you’ve ever seen a mouthwash commercial, you know that mouthwashes are commonly used to freshen breath, but that’s not all mouthwash can do! As a part of a solid brushing and flossing routine, mouthwash can be very beneficial. However, stroll down the oral care aisle, and you’ll find yourself face to face with an aisle full of mouthwash. Why are there so many types of mouthwash? Which one do you need? This post will give you the scoop on mouthwash.

What is Mouthwash?

Mouthwash is a liquid that is swished in the mouth for a certain length of time, ranging from 30 seconds to one minute, depending on the product. The FDA groups mouthwashes into three types of categories:

  • Therapeutic: Therapeutic mouthwashes contain specific ingredients that assist in fighting tooth or mouth diseases. An example of a therapeutic mouthwash is an anti-gingivitis rinse.
  • Cosmetic: A primary goal of a cosmetic mouthwash is to remove odor-causing bacteria to freshen the breath. These are easily found over-the-counter, and they cannot treat tooth or mouth diseases.
  • Combination: A combination mouthwash serves to treat mouth conditions as well as address cosmetic concerns.

Types of Mouthwash

Mouthwash, whether it falls under the cosmetic or therapeutic category, is designed for a specific purpose. There are many types of mouthwashes including:

  • Whitening: Used in conjunction with a whitening toothpaste or perhaps even after a whitening treatment, a whitening mouthwash can maintain your pearly whites.
  • Medicated mouthwashes: Certain rinses can be prescribed to you to treat certain oral conditions such as dry mouth or bleeding gums.
  • Plaque control: These mouthwashes target plaque and work to eliminate it and stall the growth of tartar.
  • Child-friendly: These rinses typically do not have alcohol listed as an ingredient.
  • Homemade: A warm saltwater rinse is commonly used to after a tooth extraction or to help clean the mouth after an infection
  • Fluoride: Fluoride rinses can help prevent tooth decay, but it is very important that young children (or individuals who may swallow the rinse) do not use fluoride rinses as too much fluoride may be harmful.
  • Antiseptic: Many dentists suggest the use of an antiseptic rinse before and/or after surgery since these rinses contain chlorhexidine gluconate, which limits the growth of bacteria.

How do I know which mouthwash is right for me?

Although mouthwashes can be a very important part of your treatment plan, mouthwash alone should never replace brushing or flossing. If you opt for an over-the-counter mouthwash, always look for an ADA seal, which means that the American Dental Association considers that mouthwash to be safe. However, sometimes choosing an OTC mouthwash isn’t enough to address your specific dental needs. A dentist will be able to help you decide which type of mouthwash is right for you, and s/he can prescribe a medicated rinse if necessary.

If you have questions about which therapeutic mouthwash is right for your needs, your dentist can suggest an appropriate one. To make an appointment, contact us today.

burning mouth syndrome

What is Burning Mouth Syndrome?

Burning mouth syndrome is a rare but debilitating ailment that affects about 20,000 people in the U.S. each year. While treatment for burning mouth syndrome is available, at present, there is no permanent cure for the condition. If you think you or a loved one may suffer from burning mouth syndrome, read on to learn more about the symptoms, causes and available treatments, including help from Creative Dental in Westfield, NJ.

What are the Symptoms of Burning Mouth Syndrome?

Burning mouth syndrome has particular symptoms that can be used to help diagnose this condition. A medical diagnosis is needed, but you and your dentist may be able to identify symptoms that could be related to burning mouth syndrome.

The areas affected by burning mouth syndrome include the tongue, inside of the cheeks, gums, lips, under the tongue, and the roof of the mouth. In some cases, the area affected may be sparse, while in others, the entire mouth is affected.

The symptoms of burning mouth syndrome can come on suddenly, or they may slowly develop over a length of time. Here are some of the symptoms of burning mouth syndrome.

  • Sensation of a scalded tongue, without being able to connect it with eating or drinking hot foods or beverages
  • Burning sensation in one or several areas of the mouth, including any part listed above.
  • Chronic dry mouth and insatiable thirst
  • Metallic or bitter taste in the mouth and/or throat
  • Decrease or absence of the sense of taste in a small patch of the tongue or all over

The timing of the symptoms of burning mouth syndrome is individual. In some persons, the symptoms happen every single day and become progressively worse as the day wears on. In others, symptoms of burning mouth syndrome are pretty steady from waking until falling asleep. In still others, symptoms of burning mouth syndrome are sporadic, with no discernible pattern.

What Causes Burning Mouth Syndrome?

There are two known types of causes of burning mouth syndrome, known as primary and secondary. The primary cause of burning mouth syndrome has to do with internal problems with the nervous system relating to sensory nerves. The possible secondary causes of burning mouth syndrome are more abundant. They include:

  • Chronic dry mouth
  • Oral fungal infection
  • Vitamin and/or mineral deficiency
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Allergic reactions
  • Chronic acid reflux
  • Medication side effects
  • Oral habits
  • Disorders of the endocrine system
  • Stress and/or depression
  • Soft tissue irritation

It’s important to note that while there is no cure for burning mouth syndrome itself, many of the secondary causes of burning mouth syndrome can be diagnosed and/or treated by a dentist. The only way to ensure that secondary causes are caught right away is to keep regularly scheduled appointments with your dentist.

What Treatments are Available for Burning Mouth Syndrome?

Your dentist will be the first person you can consult with about your oral health issues, and any symptoms of burning mouth syndrome that you may be experiencing. Treatment will be worked out between you, your dentist and your medical physician. Treatments may include:

  • Oral Rinses
  • Denture refitting
  • Prescription medication
  • Therapy
  • Saliva replacement products

There’s no need to suffer silently with burning mouth syndrome. If you suspect you may have this condition, contact the professionals at Creative Dental today to make an appointment. Your health depends on it!

wisdom teeth signs

5 Signs That You Need Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the large molar teeth at the very back of your mouth. Although wisdom teeth are natural, there are times when your dentist in Westfield, NJ may recommend having them extracted. If the wisdom teeth have already grown in, the wisdom teeth can be pulled. If they haven’t yet broken the gum line, oral surgery may be warranted to remove the wisdom teeth. Here are some situations and wisdom teeth signs that they may have to go.

1. You are Getting Braces

If you are getting braces or another alignment treatment, your wisdom teeth may need to be removed. If your wisdom teeth haven’t come in yet, there’s a strong chance that when they do, they could undo all the work that was done by your braces. If your wisdom teeth are already grown in, they may still have to be removed, to ensure that the other teeth in your mouth can be aligned correctly.

2. You Have Jaw Pain

Since wisdom teeth are located so far back in the mouth, they can affect your jaw in some cases. There are times when wisdom teeth have been known to cause pain or discomfort in the jaw when talking or chewing. This is one of those wisdom teeth signs that your dentist in Westfield, NJ can help to diagnose if you do have chronic jaw pain. If it turns out that your wisdom teeth are to blame, their removal may take care of your jaw pain permanently.

3. You Have Sinus Trouble

Because of the location of your wisdom teeth, their root structure can push and rub against sinuses, causing a host of sinus issues. If you have chronic sinus trouble, such as frequent headaches, runny nose, sinus drip, or pain or tenderness between your eyes, talk to your dentist at Creative Dental to see about the chances that your wisdom teeth are to blame. If they are, an extraction or surgical removal could solve your sinus problems.

4. You Have Gum Disease

Wisdom teeth are susceptible to gum disease just like other teeth in your mouth. Because they are so far back in your mouth, it’s quite difficult to clean wisdom teeth properly. This can lead to bacteria build-up, cavities, and ultimately gum disease. Gum disease can then lead to other problems, with the potential to spread throughout your teeth and gums. If your wisdom teeth have developed gum disease around them, it’s likely that your dentist will recommend their removal. These wisdom teeth signs include redness, swelling, tenderness or bleeding gums.

5. They are Impacted

Impacted wisdom teeth happen when they don’t grow in precisely. This can occur for a variety of reasons, but the result is the same. A painful, swollen area that will not resolve itself without medical intervention. If you do have impacted wisdom teeth, you’ll need to have them surgically removed.

We will be able to diagnose and advise you as to whether you have an oral health condition that may require the removal of your wisdom teeth. Call or email today to make an appointment to have your wisdom teeth checked.

How to Improve Your Smile in Pictures

Are you often disappointed by the way your smile looks in pictures? Your smile plays an important part in how you come across in images. Don’t let your teeth ruin what could potentially be a beautiful smile. Here are some tips on how to improve your smile in pictures.

Brush and Floss

The first step in ensuring a beautiful smile is to practice good oral hygiene. This includes proper brushing and flossing techniques. For best results, you should replace your toothbrush at least once a month. This will help to prevent bacteria from building up on your toothbrush, as well as ensure that you aren’t using bristles that have lost their integrity.

Use toothpaste that is recommended by your dentist, or by the American Dental Association. If discoloration is an issue, opt for toothpaste that contains whitening ingredients. Floss after each meal to prevent cavities from forming in between teeth. Use an anti-bacterial mouthwash as a follow-up after every brushing and flossing to get rid of even more unwanted bacteria.

Have Teeth Professionally Whitened

There’s no substitute for professional teeth whitening. At Creative Dental in Westfield, NJ, professional teeth whitening is available, along with a free consultation. In many cases, you can expect results that will make your teeth 2-3 times whiter than before. After the non-invasive procedure, you will have a winning smile for all your photographs.

Get Snap-On Smile

If you’re looking for a fast, transformation smile, consider the Snap-On Smile, available at Creative Dental. The Snap-On Smile is an easy, fast and painless way to transform your smile from flawed to perfect instantly. This apparatus can be inserted and removed by you, just in time for all your photo opportunities. With just two visits, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted for yourself but never dreamed possible.

Get Porcelain Veneers

If you prefer a more permanent solution to a beautiful smile for pictures, consider getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are fitted over your regular teeth, after some minor procedures by your Westfield, NJ dentist. The best part is, porcelain veneers are so realistic looking, no one will know they aren’t part of your natural teeth, in pictures or real life. The results are dramatic, long lasting and impressive.

Have Botox Treatments

One of the most obvious signs of aging is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and smile area. Unfortunately, this is a common problem that looks even worse when you express a wide smile, such as in photographs. Botox is a treatment that delivers proven and excellent results in eliminating the appearance of those aging lines and wrinkles. At Creative Dental, you can get Botox treatments independently, or in addition to other cosmetic or general dentistry treatments like implants, dentures, teeth whitening or other procedures.

Don’t suffer from one more unflattering picture, just because your smile is not what you’d like it to be. With a combination of good oral hygiene and one or more dental treatments, you can have the smile that you’ve always wanted. Contact Creative Dental in Westfield, NJ to make an appointment today!

Can You Eat With Snap On Smile?

Snap-on Smile is an affordable and non-invasive solution that is suitable for many common dental issues. If you have gaps in your teeth, are missing teeth, or your teeth are stained or crooked, you could be a good candidate for Snap-on Smile. There are just two, non-invasive, painless dental visits involved with no shots or drilling necessary for you to receive an affordable and transformative smile.

Can You Eat With Your Snap-on Smile?

Many dental patients are pleased with the advantages of having a Snap-on Smile but are concerned about the effects of eating. After all, for many people having a beautiful smile when they are with friends and family or out in public is the impetus that pushed them to visit the dentist in the first place.

Not only does eating with your Snap-on Smile in place give you the appearance of beautiful and natural teeth, but it also makes eating more pleasurable and healthy. Your Snap-on Smile performs many of the same functions as your natural teeth do — namely, it helps to break down your food so that it can be digested more easily by your stomach and used by your body more efficiently.

Cautions While Eating with Your Snap-on Smile

Whether eating in with your immediate family or eating out with a group of friends, knowing the details of eating and caring for your Snap-on Smile is important when it comes to deciding if this solution is the right one for you. Nearly all foods and beverages can be enjoyed while you are wearing your Snap-on Smile. That being said, it is recommended that you avoid the following:

  • Most dentists caution their patients with a Snap-on Smile about chewing gum and eating sticky foods. These could adhere to the dental appliance and cause it to become uncomfortable for you.
  • Hard foods are also not advised to be eaten by patients who have a Snap-on Smile. Foods such as tough meat and chicken bones can lead to cracking or breaking of your Snap-on Smile. Even hard bread, such as baguettes and bagels, can damage your Snap-on Smile, so most dentists recommend that you avoid them while wearing your dental device.

Caring for Your Snap-on Smile

Most dentists recommend that their patients with a Snap-on Smile brush the dental appliance after every meal, if possible. Use a soft toothbrush to gently remove food particles and other debris before rinsing the appliance thoroughly with clear water. It’s important not to use regular toothpaste as it will wear away the luster of your Snap-on Smile. Instead. Use the special cleaner recommended by your dentist to clean your dental device thoroughly. Refills of the cleanser can also be obtained at your dentist’s office.

Be sure always to remove your Snap-on Smile and brush it before you go to sleep. You do not, however, need to soak it in a cleaning solution overnight. If you have any other questions or concerns about caring for your Snap-on Smile, contact us today!

Does Snap-On Smile Work for Missing Teeth?

If you suffer from missing teeth, you understand all too well the embarrassment and feelings of guilt that this condition causes. Missing teeth can happen for many different reasons; some are preventable, and others are not the fault of the person.

Unfortunately, those with missing teeth can experience a very negative reaction from others, resulting in a lack of confidence, and sometimes even depression or an unwillingness to engage in social activities.

Missing teeth can also negatively impact nutrition. It’s often difficult to chew and drink with missing teeth. This condition can also impact the ability to sing, laugh and speak.

dental procedures require sedation

Dental Procedures That Require Sedation

Most people know how important regular dental care is. Not only does it help to keep your mouth healthy, but good dental care can also help your entire body stay in optimum condition. In spite of this knowledge, many people avoid going to the dentist as often as they should. They have developed a fear of the dentist that leads them to put off routine cleanings and checkups in favor of visiting the dentist only when their pain is too great. Sedation dentistry may be an excellent option for those fearful of the dentist’s chair.

Sedation: A Great Tool for the Fearful

Whether you had a traumatic dental experience as a child, the media’s portrayal of dentists makes you fearful, or some other reason is behind your anxiety, odontophobia is is a condition shared by around 50 percent of Americans. Fortunately, dentists have many tools at their disposal that are designed to provide you with excellent oral care and make you feel more comfortable. One of the most important of these is sedation.

What is Dental Sedation?

Sedation allows you to remain conscious during your dental procedures while putting you in a deeply relaxed state. In fact, many people report that they drift off to sleep briefly while under sedation. There are three types of sedation delivery methods: oral, intravenous and inhalation. Oral sedation is the most popular form in use in the United States. While sedation makes you more relaxed, in most cases your dentist will still deliver pain medication at the site of the dental procedure.

When is Sedation an Option?

There are some instances when sedation is a viable method of getting dental treatments. These include the following:

Wisdom tooth removal

While some people have fairly routine wisdom tooth removal, many others have wisdom teeth that are impacted, partially visible or situated under the gum line. Sedation helps make their removal less traumatic for you as the patient.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting is a procedure that is often necessary to improve the way dentures fit. It is best completed while under sedation as it involves holding your mouth open for extended periods of time.

Dental implants

Dental implants are often a good choice for patients who have lost teeth as the result of periodontal disease or an injury. In other instances, a patient might be tired of dealing with dentures that don’t fit comfortably. If you are a candidate for dental implants, this procedure will be easiest for you under sedation.

Emergency dentistry

Whether you need emergency dentistry as the result of an injury, fall or accident, you are likely to be extremely upset and in a great deal of pain. Sedation allows you to relax so that treatment and repairs to your mouth can be completed more easily.

Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery might be required to fix the alignment of your jaw bones to treat a condition like sleep apnea. It could also be needed to address temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Regardless of why you need jaw surgery, sedation is often required.

If you have a procedure that might be a good candidate for sedation, your dentist will go over the details with you.
