Dental Concerns

Bleeding Gums

If your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth, you may have gingivitis or developing periodontitis. Get diagnosis and treatment for gum inflammation and gum disease early before oral health problems worsen. We offer comprehensive diagnosis and care for all stages of gum disease to restore your oral health. Scaling and root planing, as well as other periodontal therapy treatments, remove an infection for a healthier smile. Receiving this treatment can prevent bone loss.

Crooked Teeth

There are multiple options that Dr. Catanzano offers to straighten crooked teeth. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Catanzano to learn about whether clear Invisalign braces, dental veneers, or dental crowns work best to align your teeth. A straighter smile is also a healthier smile and will enable the teeth to make proper contact when chewing. This can help you avoid tooth damage, teeth grinding and bite-related problems and discomfort.

Discolored Teeth

Treat yellowed, stained, and discolored teeth with porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and professional teeth whitening. These modern methods of dental treatment effectively brighten teeth with natural-looking end-results. Whether you have deep staining that can only be remedied with veneers or touch-ups to single teeth, we have multiple options for you.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth not only compromise the aesthetics of your smile but your overall oral health as well. If gaps left by missing teeth are not filled, remaining natural teeth could shift and become crooked or loose. However, there are multiple durable restorative solutions that look and feel like natural teeth. Dr. Shulman works with patients on an individual basis to replace missing teeth with the most suitable option.

Sleep Apnea

If you are snoring or wake up tired, you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. OSA is a common type of sleep apnea that occurs when the upper airways are obstructed by soft tissue that is collapsing into the back of the throat. Dr. Catanzano works with patients to identify the oral signs of a sleep disorder and to obtain the proper medical diagnosis and care. Oral appliance therapy is often the most helpful solution for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea.
