Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are titanium appliances that are surgically placed into the jaw to act as tooth roots and anchors for replacement teeth. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not impact surrounding healthy teeth, and they are currently the only available option for replacement of both the tooth and its root.
After the surgery to place your dental implants and a period of healing (usually two to three months), you will return to our office and we will begin the restoration process. The staff at our Freehold, New Jersey practice is skilled in dental implants techniques and will provide you with initial information on our services and schedule your appointment.
During the restoration phase, Dr. Sternberg will first examine the area to ensure that the implant has properly healed and is ready for the final step. The doctor will then take an impression of the area to send to the lab where your new restorations will be made. Once the replacement tooth has returned from the lab, the doctor and the experienced dental assistants at his New Jersey practice will complete the process for the dental implants by shaping and contouring the new replacement tooth. When you are comfortable with your bite and appearance, the replacement tooth will be permanently cemented into place.
Dental implants provide a healthy, secure and aesthetically pleasing alternative to dentures.

Your teeth undergo an extreme amount of stress each day. As time passes, your teeth may begin to weaken, fracture, or crack as a result of decay, daily stresses, or numerous old and worn dental restorations. If left untreated, weakened teeth may become weaker, and fractures and breaks may occur. Thankfully, dental crowns are available for Marlboro and Freehold area residents looking to enhance their smiles and reinforce weakened teeth.
The goal of the dental crowns offered at our office near Marlboro is to strengthen weakened teeth to prevent further damage and to make your smile more aesthetically pleasing. Dental crowns are restorations that fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth. The process can usually be completed in only two visits. During the first visit, Dr. Sternberg will prepare the teeth by reducing some of the tooth's surface structure. An impression is then taken to send to the lab where your new dental crowns will be made. At your next visit, the doctor will carefully adjust, fit and cement your new dental crowns into place.
Dental crowns can be made from various materials including a dental ceramic similar to the one used to create porcelain veneers.

Root Canal Therapy
When dental decay or traumatic fracture violate the chamber within a tooth that houses the dental pulp, commonly called a nerve, a tooth must be treated endodontically to save it or the tooth must be extracted.
Often referred to as a root canal, endodontic therapy allows you to eliminate the pain caused by infection or trauma and keep your tooth. In reality, a root canal is not the treatment, but the area that is being treated. The root canal is the tooth's chamber that contains the affected nerve (or pulp).
The endodontically treated tooth maintains the root and allows it to be rebuilt and restored to function and esthetic natural beauty. The root canal therapy provided at our Freehold office can cure the pain that so often brings patients to visit Dr. Sternberg.
Contrary to popular belief, with anesthesia and a skilled doctor, a root canal can be a relatively pain-free procedure. Our office has extensive experience in endodontic therapy. To learn more about the root canal treatment offered at our Freehold office, schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist today. Dr. Sternberg skillfully performs numerous general and restorative dentistry treatments including root canal treatment, dental bridges, crowns, and implant restorations.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Your teeth are vulnerable to many problems and, as a result, it is not uncommon for the need to arise for full mouth reconstruction. Although full mouth reconstruction is a labor-intensive process utilizing multiple dental disciplines, the benefits are well worth the effort. From dental implants to dental bridges, dental crowns and porcelain veneers our office, located in Freehold near Marlboro, offers a variety of procedures to give you a beautiful, healthy smile. Full mouth reconstruction also strives to find the most harmonious position of the jaw and teeth for optimal functioning. Dr. Sternberg's technologically advanced office is equipped with the best equipment available in modern dentistry to help achieve this goal. See this patient's video testimonial.
A full mouth reconstruction requires a strong commitment - a commitment that, if balanced with informed decisions and realistic goals, can result in lifelong benefits. Contact our dental office to learn how you might benefit from full mouth reconstruction.
If you are missing one or more of your teeth, an excellent solution exists with dental bridges. Residents of Marlboro, Freehold, and towns throughout the Jersey Shore can now close the gap left by missing teeth and open the door to beautiful smiles and improved self-confidence.
Traditional or 'fixed' dental bridges are the most common choice for patients at our Marlboro area practice. A fixed bridge consists of a replacement tooth that is connected between adjacent crowns. The dental crowns fit over healthy adjacent teeth and the replacement tooth fills the gap left by the missing tooth.
The dental bridges used at our Marlboro area dental practice in Freehold have given our Jersey Shore patients improved smiles and dental health; however, it is important to note that dental bridges require an extremely good oral hygiene regimen in order to last their full life span. With regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings, dental bridges can last for many years.
Dr. Sternberg has been restoring smiles for patients in Monmouth and Ocean Counties for over three decades. If you are missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental bridges. Contact our office near Marlboro in Freehold, New Jersey to find out more.
