Preventative dentistry means to take care of all the routine cleaning and tooth maintenance, before cavities and tooth decay ever have a chance to form. With proper medical care and direction, we can reach this goal with all our patients.
As we do our part with regular cleanings and health assessments, don’t forget that the most important care is the everyday routine of brushing and flossing.
- Prevent disease through regular exams and teeth cleanings.

When a tooth is lost, nothing is ever the same. The entire balance of a healthy mouth is lost: the bite goes off, opposing teeth overgrow in unpredictable directions, facial appearance ages.
Restorative dentistry is all about bringing mouths back into use. How? Some of the restorative procedures are:
- Permanently replace one or more missing teeth with dental implants.
- Securely hold replacement teeth in position with implant dentures.
- Replace your missing teeth with a dental prosthetic like dentures.
- Repair teeth and stop further decay with cavity fillings.
- Repair damaged or decayed teeth with inlays and onlays.
- Repair broken or cracked teeth with dental crowns.
- Replace a missing tooth with a dental bridges.
- Teeth damaged beyond repair can be removed by extractions.
There are several ways to treat periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and/or surrounding soft tissue. Caused by a buildup of bacteria, the best way to prevent such infections is to practice good brushing, flossing, and nutrition every day.
Beginning in small crevices where the tooth meets the gum, the infection can appear as only minor swelling or bleeding. As the infection progresses however, it moves deeper below the gum line where it forms large pockets of bacteria in and around the roots of the tooth. Left untreated the disease will decay the bone around the tooth and jaw, which may require a surgical procedure.
It is important to do everything possible to keep the disease from progressing with treatment of one or more of the following:
- Treat gum disease on an ongoing basis with periodontal maintenance.
- Tough buildup on teeth is removed with ultrasonic cleaning.
- Plaque, calcification, and buildup are removed with scaling and root planing.
- Gum disease can be treated and prevented with pocket reduction surgery.
- Excessive gum tissue can be reshaped with crown lengthening.
Are you experiencing pain from a toothache?
If it’s painful when biting down, chewing, or applying hot or cold foods and drinks, then it may be the symptom of a decayed or infected root.
Root canals are a way for us to treat the inside of an infected tooth and remove the problem. Often times, the structure and appearance of the tooth are mostly intact, but the pain associated with a toothache is caused by pressure from a decayed root within. It takes a trained eye or even x-rays to find the cavity or crack. That’s why it is so hard to see any problems at home.
The good news is that with treatment comes immediate relief. We remove the infected material and replace it with a biocompatible filling, and then place a dental crown to seal and strengthen the tooth. Please contact us immediately if you are experiencing pain from a toothache.

We recognize that when it comes to dental procedures, some of the most terrible things aren’t going on inside your mouth—but inside your head.
Fear of the dentist’s chair is both normal and understandable. You may be among the 150 million Americans who avoid the dentist altogether. But, truly, it doesn’t have to be that way. So much dental fear is based on false information. Well-meaning friends pass along unsettling stories about procedures—from ages ago! When it comes to truly pain-free dentistry, we’ve made greater strides in just the past few decades than in the entire history of dentistry!
If you’re extremely fearful or anxious, we can offer temporary sedation via “laughing gas” (nitrous oxide), during your appointment.
Nitrous oxide us one of the safest ways available to keep you serene in the chair. Best of all, you’re awake—normal—once the gas is shut off. You can even drive yourself home from the appointment!
Give Dr. Rosen a call at (248) 559-1559 to schedule your dental appointment with nitrous oxide sedation!
Dr. Rosen can help assist you in identifying the need for a mouthguard (bite guard/night guard.)
A mouthguard is a retainer-like hard plastic appliance worn at night while you sleep. It’s designed to protect your teeth from the pressure of clenching and motion of grinding by providing a protective cushion between your upper and lower teeth. A mouthguard can be a simple and affordable solution for protecting your teeth, jaw and jaw joint from the damaging effects of bruxism.
Give Dr. Rosen a call at (248) 559-1559 to schedule an appointment to discuss dental mouthguards!
