As you know by now, because your overall health and safety is our utmost priority, we are closely following every safety and infection control procedure recommended by the ADA and CDC. However, going way beyond these recommendations, in July we installed 2 Jade Surgically Clean Air Filtration Systems. Our office size would require only one Jade unit to kill viruses and bacteria 6 times an hour, but we are so committed to you that we have installed 2 units, one in front of each dental chair. You can be assured that our air is always the safest because we leave the systems on 24/7.

The Jade is patented and industry-leading and is the only air purification system that incorporates 6 different technologies which include, Hydroxl, UV and electronic cell catalytics, and Hepa-RX. The Jade is measured and peer-reviewed to eliminate viruses less than 0.1 microns (the corona virus is measured at .125 microns) and is tested globally with over 70,000 units installed worldwide.

With our warmest wishes for your health and safety, we look forward to seeing you soon and continuing to keep you as healthy as possible.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Submitted by Michael R. Cortese, D.M.D. on Tue 06/07/2016 - 09:00

Are you on the fence about replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant? Before you proceed with treatment, make sure you have all the facts, including the incredible benefits of dental implants. Here, trusted dental implant provider Dr. Michael Cortese of Princeton Prosthodontics shares why so many of his patients enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles, thanks to dental implants.

Cosmetic Benefits

Dental implants strongly resemble natural teeth and are nearly impossible to detect in the mouth. The crown or bridge that sits on top of the gums is custom-crafted from high-quality materials to mimic the appearance of the surrounding teeth. If you have an implant placed, you can rest assured that your implant will blend seamlessly into your mouth. You won’t get tired of sharing your beautifully improved smile!

Oral Health Benefits

Your implant should feel no different than a natural tooth. Since the implant post is surgically placed in the jawbone, it provides a reliable foundation for an artificial tooth that is screwed to the top of the post. The tooth should feel comfortable and stable in your mouth.

Implants restore normal chewing function and allow you to enjoy all of your favorite foods. Some people with missing teeth find it difficult to chew normally, and some even suffer malnutrition because their chewing ability is so severely compromised. With dental implants, you can eat a well-rounded diet, including meat and vegetables, with no problems.

Chewing normally on the implant keeps the underlying jawbone stimulated. This is an important quality of implants and what distinguishes them from other tooth replacement options (such as dentures) that don’t have a component that reaches the jawbone. Stimulating the jawbone is critical to keeping it intact and a stable foundation for the rest of the teeth. Without stimulation, the bone starts to deteriorate and can lead to the collapse of the facial features.

Dental implants are cavity-resistant and easy to clean. They can be brushed and flossed like normal teeth. They don’t rely on or affect the integrity of the surrounding teeth — meaning the adjacent teeth do not need to be ground down to make room for the implant, nor does the implant attach to them.

With the proper care, dental implants can last for many years without any problems.
