Preventative Care Dentistry at Kind Dental in Scotch Plains

At Kind Dental we take a unique approach to cosmetic and restorative dentistry

We believe that information is key and that our patients make the best decisions when provided with all of the facts. We meticulously present all of your cosmetic and restorative dental options in a clear, understandable, and visual manner. This allows us the opportunity to discuss, as a team, all of your treatment options to help determine which course of action is best for you.

We are smile design specialists. At Kind Dental in Scotch Plains, we address our patient’s dental needs, comprehensively. Whether it be crowns, veneers, root canals, implant restoration, oral surgery, or taking care of your periodontal needs, we’re your one-stop cosmetic and restorative dental care team.

At Kind Dental in Scotch Plains, we advise our patients to visit the office every six months for a dental examination and cleaning. This allows the dentist and dental hygienist to monitor the patient’s oral health.

Each dental appointment begins with a review and conversation about the patient’s dental history. The Kind Dental dentist and dental hygienist will review your dental concerns and address any discomfort immediately. A preventative dental care exam usually includes a regular or advanced form of cleaning, X-rays (if necessary), periodontal evaluation, and an oral cancer screening. We’ll also ask if the patient is experiencing any pain or discomfort since their last check-up.

In addition to examining the teeth, during the appointment, we will look at the health of the gums and jaw bone — looking for any indication of gingivitis (early gum disease), periodontitis (moderate to severe gum disease or infection), halitosis (bad breath which could indicate a mouth or systemic issue), bone loss, as well as, oral cancer.

The dentist will then meet with the patient to discuss any findings and provide recommendations regarding oral hygiene to ensure proper dental care. If a cavity or tooth decay is discovered, the dentist will recommend the appropriate treatment and discuss any next steps.

What to expect at your Kind Dental cosmetic and restorative visit

Comprehensive and preventive visits allow us to identify dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, malocclusion, tooth fractures, and several more conditions. With the help of cutting-edge technology, we will review our findings with you and formulate a plan to get you back on track. Your team at Kind Dental understands that life is busy and can be stressful. We work diligently to accommodate your schedule and complete all required treatments comfortably and promptly so that you can focus on your daily life.

We focus on being proactive with dental care so we can treat dental conditions before they become painful. We believe that your own tooth is the best tooth and identifying cavities and fractures at an early stage can mean keeping your own tooth via procedures like composite fillings (tooth-colored), porcelain crown, porcelain inlays, root canals, and apicoectomies to treat infected nerves.

Don’t worry, we also practice solutions to replace teeth when natural teeth are missing or cannot be treated. Implants are titanium screws that are strategically placed in the mouth to replace teeth and have a custom abutment and porcelain crown placed on it. We surgically plan your implant by utilizing your 3D image of the jaw without you needing to wait in the chair.
