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.

Our Specialized Procedures in Princeton, NJ

Special Needs of Geriatric Patients

As a whole, the elderly visit the dentist less than any other age group. Partly because they do not see the need for treatment and also because they feel their situations may not be accommodated, the elderly tend to ignore their dental needs. At Princeton Prosthodontics, we hope to reverse that trend by meeting the special needs of geriatric patients with exceptional dental care and attention. To learn more about our dental care for the elderly, contact us today.

Cleft Palate & Lip

A cleft palate is a birth defect in which the roof of the mouth is not completely joined together. Another common birth defect related to cleft palate is cleft lip, an opening in the skin of the upper lip, sometimes extending to the base of the nose. Caused by genetic and environmental factors, cleft palate and lip can be fixed through reconstructive surgery. To learn more about cleft palate and lip treatment options, please contact Dr. Cortese and Princeton Prosthodontics today.
