The more you know about the general services offered by your North Bergen Dentist, the better equipped you are to make wise and educated decisions about your dental healthcare. Among the most important functions of, Michael B. Schwarz, DMD, is to educate his patients as to their general treatment options. Taking the time to communicate with you about your treatment goals makes all the difference in establishing a good patient/doctor relationship, which only helps you to achieve your optimum dental health.
The general services provided by your North Bergen Dentist include the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of various dental conditions. Dr. Schwarz, along with his highly trained staff, provide general dentistry such as routine exams and cleanings, a full array of preventive, hygiene and periodontal therapies, fillings, bleaching and whitening procedures, porcelain veneers and the latest cosmetic restorative materials, root canal therapy, extractions, fixed and removable prosthodontics, and implant restorations. Dentistry tends to be perceived as being focused primarily on teeth, however, proper dentistry is widely considered necessary for complete overall health. Our dentist’s supporting team, which includes dental hygienists, dental technicians, dental therapists and dental assistants, greatly help in providing oral health services.
The majority of dental treatments carried out by Dr. Schwarz and the dedicated staff, are to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease). Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth as a treatment for tooth decay, which would be fillings, extraction or surgical removal of teeth which cannot be restored, scaling of teeth to treat periodontal problems and endodontic root canal treatment to treat abscessed teeth. General dentistry is preventative in nature, meaning that we keep problems, such as cavities, from developing in the first place. Dentists can also prescribe medications such as sedatives, antibiotics, and any other drugs used in a patient’s treatment. Our North Bergen Dentist also encourages prevention of oral diseases through proper hygiene and twice yearly checkups for professional cleaning and evaluation. Conditions in the oral cavity may be symptomatic of general diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, or cancer and many studies have shown that gum disease is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and preterm birth.
Our North Bergen Dentist wants to know your concerns regarding your dental health and how he and his team can meet and exceed your expectations. Not only will dentistry designed for you provide you with the best treatment, but also peace of mind.
