When Should I See A General Dentist?
Ideally a patient should have their teeth examined every six months. This is a preventative measure, and if a patient regularly visits their Dr, they can prevent a multitude of dental health issues, such as gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, root canals, etc. Usually, on a first visit, your dentist will complete a consultation and take x-rays, if you have a history of poor dental health. State-of-the-art x-rays take a picture of the tooth, gums, and roots of the teeth. This can provide insight to your dentist, as it provides an image not visible to the naked eye, this will help the dentist plan your treatment and procedures if necessary.

Restorations are provided after consultation by your Staten Island dentists and New Jersey Dentists if you have a broken tooth or a cavity. We provide cosmetic dentistry fillings (white), to give a natural teeth finish. This is provided at an early stage, to prevent more serious problems such as root canals.

Staten Island Pediatric Dentists
Our Staten Island dental team and New Jersey dentist team are happy to provide your children with general services for all dental issues.

We use the highest quality products to ensure you receive the best dental care.
Your #1 Dentist In Staten Island
At Oakwood, our Staten Island and New Jersey office is comprised of a team of the most exceptional and caring dentists, who value you as a patient. We take care of all of your dental needs. Regrettably, not all teeth can be saved and in some cases, extraction may be the only option. This may be because you have impacted wisdom teeth, that have suffered a repeated infection. If this is the case, make an appointment at our office. We have a great dentist, a specialist in oral surgery, in-house, who can take care of you, our patient, in a state-of-the-art environment.
Another reason an extraction may be necessary is that the tooth is no longer viable, this may be due to decay or aging. Losing your teeth impacts the structure of your full arch, ruins your bite, and can lead to jaw and facial bone pain and maybe even facial bone tissue deterioration. This may in turn cause damage to the other teeth, as they have to compensate for the missing teeth. This can prevent a host of other oral health issues. In this case, we have a great dentistry treatment option to replace the missing teeth and restore your healthy smile. A visit to our dental office in New York and New Jersey will put your dental care first.
Dentures and Dental Implants are a solution to replace missing teeth in general dentistry. Acrylic dentures are an option for many patients who require full mouth restoration or partial dental restoration. Teeth whitening can be done in tandem with this, to ensure a beautiful, natural smile. For some patients, chrome dentures are a great treatment to restore your smile, if you have four or more missing teeth. Simply Natural Dentures™ and Simply Natural Partials™ are convenient and durable treatment solutions for tooth loss that will subtly restore what’s missing, with a comfortable and lightweight feeling. However, if a patient wants another treatment option to restore tooth loss, we recommend our services treatment which includes bridges and dental implants. An implant is an option your dentist will recommend if you require stability to hold an existing denture in place.
Dental implants are a great option to replace a lost tooth. When a patient loses a tooth, it can cause jaw deterioration and in some cases facial collapse. The implant substitutes the lost tooth root and stimulates the bone to grow and strengthen in order to support the artificial root. Your specialist dentists will recommend a treatment called dental implants. A dental implant is placed in the jaw bone using state-of-the-art, advanced technology, to replace the lost tooth root. The procedures cause minimal discomfort to our patients. Once the implant is placed, it will take the implant site six weeks to three months to recover. Your Staten Island NY Dentist and New Jersey Dentist will have recommended a dental implant to hold a permanent bridge or crown in place.
Once the dental implants healing process has been completed, our dentists will have patients make an appointment to place an artificial tooth called a crown or a bridge on top of the dental implants. This service provides our patients with the highest quality, natural-looking teeth. This improves the appearance and function of our patients. A dental implant will remain healthy and never decay! Oakwood Staten Island dentists and New Jersey dentists offer a philosophy of care and believe everyone deserves a perfect smile. Our services begin at the front desk and follow throughout the practice to provide you with the best care for your entire visit.

At Oakwood Dental, Staten Island, and New Jersey, we use CERAC Dentistry Restorations. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or Ceramic Reconstruction.
