If you have cavities, tooth aches, or simply need a dental cleaning, Oradell general dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter can provide you and your family with outstanding dental service.
Although our name implies an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, we are proud to provide our patients with the complete general dental care they need to maintain optimum levels of oral health. Even a regular checkup can ensure your teeth and gums are functioning properly, preventing costly or painful complications in the future.
General Dentistry Services
General dentistry includes several types of services that deal with the overall health of your mouth and teeth:
Family Dentistry – We are proud to offer family dentistry services for you and your loved ones, no matter what your age or dental condition. Dr. Perlmutter possesses the skills and experience to handle all of the dental needs that may arise in family members of varying life stages.
Pediatric Dentistry – Children should begin visiting the dentist within six weeks of getting their first teeth. We offer pediatric dentistry services to children of all ages to ensure that good dental health practices begin as soon as possible. We provide the kind of considerate, gentle care that makes your children excited to return to the dentist’s office.
Dental Hygiene – dental hygiene is one of the most important aspects of general dentistry. Even if you simply need a routine cleaning, we are happy to provide you with thorough care, and we will even recommend personalized treatment for your at-home dental care regimen.
Endodontics – The health of the inside of your teeth may be even more important than that of your tooth enamel. If you have a toothache, you should schedule an appointment immediately to prevent further damage or potential tooth loss. Dr. Perlmutter offers endodontic treatment and surgery to help you keep your natural teeth in good condition as long as possible.
Periodontics – Your gums play a major role in protecting and supporting your teeth. We provide periodontic care to prevent gum disease, ensuring that your teeth and all their supporting structures remain in good health.
