Featured General Dentistry Services
Maintaining a strict daily oral hygiene regimen is critical to avoiding all levels of dental health problems. Equally important is coming in to see Dr. Orenstein and our team for regular dental exams and cleanings. Keeping your teeth clean will help keep them healthy in the long run.
Many people grind their teeth either during sleep or during strenuous daytime activities. If you’re one of them, you’re at risk of developing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Dr. Orenstein can help you overcome the detrimental effects of this habit with a custom-fitted mouthguard.
Are you hearing a popping sound when you bite down? You may have a TMJ disorder or your teeth and/or jaws may be misaligned. Dr. Orenstein can alleviate your discomfort using a mouthguard, which he will customize to fit you. Mouthguards stop you from grinding and tightening your teeth and enable your jaw and facial muscles to relax.
When Dr. Orenstein conducts exams, he’s not just looking for signs of cavities—he’s looking for signs of potentially serious systemic health conditions including cancer. By detecting these issues early on, he can help you avoid more advanced forms of disease.
If your teeth are out of alignment, you may have trouble eating and speaking comfortably. If you fail to have the condition treated, your teeth may become worn down and cracked. Dr. Orenstein can put your teeth back in alignment simply by removing a small portion of enamel from specific teeth.
If you have missing, crooked or gapped teeth and are unable to have dental implants or bridges, Dr. Orenstein can offer an alternative treatment to fix your smile. With Snap-On Smile® he can resolve these problems without performing surgery. Instead, he can slip a customized appliance over your lower teeth, upper teeth or both as necessary to hide imperfections in your smile.
Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but Dr. Orenstein uses them to rebuild and strengthen the outside surface of your teeth. These allow us to avoid placing new crowns on damaged teeth. Inlays repair the center of your tooth while onlays cover a wider area that incorporates a minimum of one cusp.
Do you suffer from dental anxiety? If you do, you’re not alone. It’s a common concern and Dr. Orenstein fully understands. For many procedures, he can provide you with single-dose oral sedation, which will keep you calm and pain-free throughout your treatment. Select treatments also involve minimally invasive laser technology, which means no scalpels or sutures are needed.
Sleep apnea is more than snoring. With this condition, you actually stop breathing multiple times each night. As a result, you can experience daytime tiredness and worse—heart problems. Dr. Orenstein can fit you with a mouthguard that will shift your jaw slightly forward while you sleep. This will keep your airway open, prevent snoring, and protect your long-term health.
