  • Best Dentist near me | Manalapan NJ | Remarkable Grins | Dr Len Ciuffreda

    General Dentistry & Periodontal Care in Manalapan, NJ ​ Routine checkups and cleanings Regular dental checkups and cleanings, along with good home care, are the cornerstone of optimal dental health. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda always schedules an hour for a new patient examination; during which time we will review your medical and dental history including any particular issues or concerns you may have, perform an oral cancer screening, take and review a set of digital radiographs (x-rays), and conduct a full soft tissue/periodontal (gums) and hard tissue (teeth) exam. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda then will review his findings with you, discuss different treatment options, and take whatever time is needed to thoroughly answer your questions about your treatment plan. Most times you will also receive a professional tooth cleaning (prophylaxis) at this visit. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda will recommend a frequency for you to return for regular checkups and cleanings based upon his findings. Generally speaking, we advise seeing our patients at least every 6 months to maintain excellent oral health. ​ ​ Periodontal Care Periodontics is dentistry dealing with diseases of the gums and other structures around the teeth. There is a growing body of research that demonstrates a relationship between periodontal disease and systemic health issues. ​ Periodontal Disease encompasses a progressive range of conditions that has its beginnings as gingivitis – inflammation of the gums surrounding the teeth as a result of bacteria and plaque buildup. Chronic inflammation of the gums can then result in deterioration and loss of the bone that supports the teeth, and ultimately lead to tooth loss. Dr. Ciuffreda is passionate about maintaining the periodontal health of his patients because that is the foundation for any other dental treatment. ​ Initial treatment of periodontal disease most often involves scaling and root planning, otherwise known as “deep cleaning.” This involves gently numbing the region to be treated, and removing plaque and calculus underneath the gum line. ​ Dental Fillings Smaller areas of tooth decay are usually restored with fillings. Dr Ciuffreda almost exclusively uses tooth colored, bonded filling material (also known as “composite”) for these procedures. ​ The advantages of bonded fillings include (as the name implies…) actual bonding of the restoration to the tooth; most times the ability to do a much smaller restoration, thereby conserving natural tooth structure; and of course outstanding esthetics. One aspect of cosmetic dentistry that Dr. Ciuffreda finds particularly rewarding is when he is able to blend a bonded filling into a tooth so that you can’t even tell that a restoration was done at all. ​ Crowns Crowns involve the reduction of more tooth structure and may be warranted for several reasons, including inadequate remaining tooth structure, following endodontic (root canal) therapy, or for cosmetic enhancement. Crowns are most often fabricated of either special all-porcelain materials (such as zirconia and e-max) or porcelain fused over high gold content metal (PFM). All-porcelain crowns typically provide the best cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the “dark line” effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with PFMs. Dr. Ciuffreda reviews an x-ray is taken of all crowns prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting and provide the best possible seal to the underlying tooth structure. ​ Bridges Bridges are one treatment option for the restoration of missing teeth (or failing teeth that require extraction) and are comprised of multiple crowns joined together. Teeth on either side of the space are prepared (reduced) which serve as the anchoring points for the restoration. ​ As with single crowns, bridges are most often fabricated of either special all-porcelain materials (such as zirconia) or porcelain fused over high gold content metal (PFM). All-porcelain bridges typically provide the best cosmetic result as they allow for a degree of translucency as with natural tooth structure, and also eliminate the possibility of the “dark line” effect at the gum line that may sometimes occur with PFM bridges. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda reviews an x-ray is taken of all crowns prior to final placement and cementation to ensure that they are perfectly fitting and provide the best possible seal to the underlying tooth structure. Bridges provide an esthetically pleasing, strong and functional solution to restore spaces due to tooth loss. ​ ​ Dental Implants Restoration with dental implants is perhaps one of the most predictable and satisfying treatment alternatives available for patients today! Implant restorations may be used to for single or multiple teeth, or even the complete dentition. Options may consist of restorations that are cemented and/or screw-retained (fixed) or can be taken in and out of the mouth retained with various types of attachments (removable) . Providing coordinated treatment together with a dental surgical specialist and best implant dentist Manalapan NJ , Dr. Ciuffreda is able to replace non-restorable or missing teeth with state-of-the-art implant technology that has an outstanding long-term success rate. ​ There are numerous benefits to dental implants : - Restoration of dental implants isroutinely an extremely comfortable stage of treatment, almost never requiring dental anesthesia (i.e. “novocaine”). - In comparison to the significant reduction of tooth structure that would need to be removed from adjacent teeth for a bridge, neighboring teeth do not require any drilling or preparation for an implant restoration. - The surgical component of the implant contributes to the preservation of bone in the area by acting as an “artificial root”. Bone in the jaw will otherwise be lost over time without forces acting on it (through a tooth or an implant). Such loss of bone can become a cosmetic or functional concern. - Implant components consist of all non-organic components, such as titanium and porcelain. This of course means that implants are not subject to decay (getting a cavity). - Implants have an outstanding long-term success rate, with some studies reporting as high as 98%. - Implants more closely duplicate our natural biology of having individual teeth supported by a root-type structure, as compared with a bridge where two or more teeth are joined together with a connected tooth or teeth in the middle. The typical procedure for single tooth dental implant restoration: Following the extraction of the non-restorable tooth – with either local anesthesia (“nocovaine”) or under IV conscious sedation – a titanium implant (“artificial root”) will be gently and comfortably placed into the upper or lower jaw by a dental surgical specialist. Generally within 3-4 months the implant will have successfully integrated with the bone and is now ready for Dr. Ciuffreda to begin restoration. ​ The restoration phase is almost always extremely comfortable, almost never even requires a numbing injection, nor is any drilling necessary! At the initial restorative visit , Dr. Ciuffreda will gently remove a cover screw, take some impressions, and replace the cover screw. At the final appointment, the cover screw is again comfortably removed, the implant abutment (or “post”) is placed, and a dental x-ray is taken to be sure it is positioned perfectly. The abutment (‘post”) and crown are then placed. While the abutment is always screw retained, the implant crown may either be cemented to the abutment or fabricated in conjunction with the abutment to be entirely screw retained. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda is highly experienced in dental implant restoration, encompassing single tooth cases to complete upper and lower full mouth implant restorations / reconstructions. ​ ​ Full & Partial Removable Dentures Whenever advisable, Dr. Ciuffreda definitely prefers fixed (that is, non-removable) treatment options such as crowns, bridges and fixed implant restorations because of the superior chewing ability that they provide. However, there are instances where partial or full dentures are indicated clinically, such as if there is inadequate bone for a surgeon to place implants or too few remaining good support teeth for a bridge. Additionally, full or partial dentures may provide a less expensive financial alternative, or they may be used as an interim (temporary / transitional) restoration as part of your overall case. ​ ​ Root Canal Therapy Root canal (endodontic) therapy is generally indicated when the nerve of the tooth becomes compromised by decay, irreversibly irritated / inflamed, or becomes necrotic (dies). What is often confusing to patients is that teeth that may require root canal therapy are not always painful, but they certainly can be. After making sure the patient is numbed comfortably, root canal therapy involves the removal of the tooth nerve/pulp, cleaning of the canal(s), and filling / sealing of the canals. Following endodontic therapy restoration with a crown is almost always indicated for structural stability and restoration, as the absence of the internal blood vessels within the tooth now leave it dry and brittle, thus more susceptible to fracture. ​ Get the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

    TMJ DISORDERS, HEADACHE & TEETH GRINDING in Manalapan, NJ TMJ Disorders The term “TMJ disorders” (also referred to as TMD), as commonly used by patients, represents a broad array of jaw joint, occlusal, and musculoskeletal conditions of the head & neck. As the classification encompasses a wide range of conditions, there naturally are many signs and symptoms of TMD. Some of the more common ones include: ​ – pain in front of the ear – tender or painful jaw muscles – clicking, popping or crunching noises when opening or closing the jaw – limited opening or locking of the jaw - Headaches or general head / neck pain may also be associated with TMJ disorders. (See the section on headaches below.) ​ Such problems require comprehensive evaluation by a dentist with advanced training in this area. In evaluating a patient with symptoms of a potential TMJ disorder, our office combines the results of your medical history / questionnaire, x-rays, and a detailed examination of the head & neck to arrive at your diagnosis. Referral for imaging such as a CT scan, MRI, or iCAT may be indicated. ​ Due to the potentially complex nature of such disorders which often involve many contributing factors, our treatment approach is one of the whole person as a system to restore harmony and balance to your TM joint / head & neck functioning. Common therapeutic approaches may include the use of an oral appliance, occlusal equlibration (adjusting the “bite”), specific jaw exercises, and the use of moist heat. We may also work with other medical specialists depending upon your individual needs, and may advise referrals for evaluating nutritional considerations, , general exercise, lifestyle, work habits and daily living changes, and stress reduction / relaxation suggestions. ​ We have had tremendous success with our integrative, conservative, non-surgical approach to the treatment of our TMD patients. In fact, this ability to provide such profound relief from chronic debilitating pain is one of the most rewarding aspects of our practice! ​ ​ Headache Headache is one of the most common medical complaints of the U.S. population today and actually accounts for millions of lost workdays each year. Due to the wide range of apparent symptoms and presentations of head pain, the International Headache Society has developed a comprehensive classification in an attempt to categorize these disorders. ​ Our experience in treating these disorders has shown that the large majority of patients who complain of unilateral headache (pain on one side) often have a muscular / myofacial (MPDS) cause of their discomfort; and a large percentage of the time are associated with an actual TMJ (actual joint involvement) disorder. The most common (although not the only) location for this type of headache is around or above one eye, travelling up from the neck on the same side. ​ If there is an associated TMJ disorder and/or bruxism (tooth grinding), an oral appliance is usually essential to achieving relief. Such headaches of muscular origin have been quite successfully treated at our office. Coordinated referral to a physical therapist, occupational therapist, chiropractor, or a well trained massage therapist is often highly beneficial. ​ Dr. Ciuffreda has seen numerous patients who provide a history of “migraine.” Frequently these patients have been placed on prescription migraine medication but have had only limited, if any relief. However, upon examination Dr, Ciuffreda frequently finds that they really have a muscular / myofascial type headache often associated with a TMJ disorder and/or bruxism. that can usually be alleviated without, or with minimal medications as discussed above. ​ RED FLAGS OF HEADACHE Not all headaches are “just headaches”. There are certain signs or symptoms that may indicate a serious underlying cause for headache symptoms. If you experience any of the following it would be highly advisable for you to seek medical consultation promptly: – abrupt onset of different or new type of severe headache – “worst headache you have ever had” – new onset of headache if over 50 years old – worsening of a headache over a period of days or weeks – headache worsened or precipitated by exertion – presence of illness, fever, nausea, vomiting, stiff neck – neurological symptoms (different from classic pre-migraine signs) ​ ​ Teeth Grinding It has been estimated that 30% of adults suffer from tooth grinding, or bruxism. Although some people will grind & clench their teeth during the day as well, bruxism generally occurs during stage 2 of sleep. Problems associated with clenching and grinding may include: - unsightly shortening and chipping of teeth - disruption of naturally protective tooth architecture - tooth sensitivity - accelleration of periodontal bone loss in the presence of gum inflammation - loosening of teeth - headache - TMJ disorders The primary treatment for tooth grinding is to fabricate a custom "night guard" so that during the night you will grind on the oral appliance rather than on your teeth. This will not only protect your teeth from wear and distribute biting 7 clenching forces, but it will also decompress your jaw joint promotog overall TMJ health. ​ ​
