Patients seek dental care for a myriad of reasons. While some simply wish to restore health and function, others want to maximize their aesthetics. When you select a dentist, it is important to choose someone who is experienced in comprehensive care. Drs. Victoria Uryniak and Carson Ferris-Zeolla provide phased dental treatment at Walnut Pond Dental so their Annandale, NJ patients can optimize their dental care for a lifetime of benefits. Staging treatment has significant psychological and financial benefits. Oftentimes, completing multiple treatments over the course of several months (or even years) can be preferable to completing all procedures at once.
Custom Dentistry for Your Unique Needs
No two patients are the same, as each will have different needs and goals. To address the uniqueness of our patients, each and every treatment plan that our doctors present will be created with the individual in mind. During your initial consultation, our doctors will talk with you and carefully listen to your long-term goals. After a complete oral assessment, they will be able to determine a plan that will work for you and your budget.
Prioritizing Your Dental Treatment Plan
Every aspect of your smile works together harmoniously for optimal oral health. When you address health-related concerns first, any cosmetic treatments will have a solid foundation for long-term success. Our system of comprehensive dental care can be divided into four steps:
- Disease Control: First, your oral health must be stabilized. Any problematic issues will need to be addressed so that further damage does not occur. This includes periodontal disease, dental abscesses, or extensive tooth decay. Any specialists that need to be involved – such as periodontists, oral surgeons, endodontists, or orthodontists – will be contacted and informed so we can begin to construct your entire treatment from beginning to end.
- Restorative: After your immediate health concerns have been addressed, we will discuss any necessary restorative treatments. Typically, these procedures can be completed according to your budget and timetable. Restorative dentistry includes procedures such as crowns, bridges, or dental implants, among others.
- Cosmetic: Procedures in cosmetic dentistry can be performed if you desire to improve the aesthetics of your smile. This can include treatments such as professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding. Many times, cosmetic procedures can be performed alongside restorative treatments.
- Maintenance: Once your treatment is complete, we will see you for routine examinations to monitor your health and function and ensure your smile is well-protected. Your doctor will also determine a cleaning schedule that will appropriately meet your needs.
The Value of Comprehensive Dentistry
Life is busy. It is often difficult to find time for dental visits. However, patients who only see their dentist when they are in pain typically spend more money in the long run. When you invest in comprehensive care, you can treat problems before they spiral out of control and avoid more extensive dental treatments in the future.
