Most standard pieces of dental work such as  veneers, crowns and bridges are created from special materials. These materials give your dental work the ability to replicate your natural teeth.

Unfortunately, there are some things that can chip or fracture a piece of dental work. This is even more likely to occur if you have a bad habit of chewing on objects, opening packages with your teeth, or chewing ice.

If you have a piece of dental work that is damaged in any way, you should not delay in calling 201.944.1969 to make an appointment at Dr. Jessica Gorelik’s clinic. Procrastination increases your chances of suffering serious complications.

If a household accident or blow to the face has left blood or other debris in your mouth you can gently rinse it away with lukewarm saltwater. Any other cleaning procedures should be left to Dr. Gorelik and her highly trained staff.

If an anchoring abutment within the dental work has been damaged, Dr. Gorelik might need to perform a root canal.  This will keep the tooth strong enough to serve as an anchor for your new dental work.

If you live in the Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, area and you have suffered damage to your  dental work you should call 201 Dental Care at 201.944.1969.
