Your initial oral exam at our Ramapo dental office, includes a thorough periodontal evaluation, identifying tooth decay and the state of health of your gums and other oral tissues. If a patient has dentures or bridges, the fit will also be evaluated. Your bite and oral hygiene are also assessed and Baruch B. Lifshitz, DDS will recommend the best treatment options for you. Regular dental exams and twice a year cleanings are important for all ages, since the needs we have as children usually become very different as we get older.

A comprehensive oral exam is done to evaluate your mouth, jaw, and teeth and The American Dental Association (ADA) along with Dr. Lifshitz, recommend that patients seeing a dentist for the first time receive a comprehensive examination, including a thorough cleaning, dental x-rays, a periodontal evaluation, and other diagnostic tests. This full testing is recommended every 3 years with regular oral exams and cleanings done twice a year for maintenance. The initial exam will begin at our Ramapo dental office, with Dr. Lifshitz reviewing your complete medical and dental history and once he is familiar with any special conditions that may affect you, the oral exam and cleaning can begin.

Every tooth is checked for cavities and the conditions and positions of your teeth, are recorded on a tooth chart. The jaw joint and bite are evaluated, since an irregular bite can lead to excessive wear on the teeth and other dental problems. At your initial exam at our Ramapo dental office, evaluate the gum tissue for periodontal disease by checking for loose teeth, bone loss, and bleeding, swollen, or receding gums. An oral cancer screening is also an important part of the oral exam at our Ramapo dental office and, when caught early, many types of oral cancer can be treated successfully. Patient education is also important and you will be instructed on the proper techniques in flossing and brushing, the use of fluoride toothpastes, and the prevention of tooth damage from contact sports and other activities. Either Dr. Lifshitz, or dental hygienist, will give you a professional dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, to remove plaque and any tartar buildup. This thorough cleaning is recommended twice a year. Finally, Dr. Lifshitz will design a dental treatment plan for you based on the findings of your initial oral exam.

Are you concerned about the treatment you need for healing the cavities of your smile? Dental decay can happen to anyone, especially when you neglect regular comprehensive dental exams from your local Ramapo dentist. Without regular cleanings hardened deposits of tartar and calcium can build-up and allow decay to spread, creating cavities throughout your smile. There are many different types of fillings in use today, but each has its own unique purpose in the use of your smile. To find out which type is right for your needs, simply pay a visit to the oral health care experts of the offices of Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS.

Traditional fillings may sound old fashioned, but their effectiveness makes them one of the top choices in the treatment of cavities today. Each tooth of your mouth has its own unique purpose, and the molars of your mouth are responsible for much of the chewing our jaws perform for healthy digestion. These teeth put out more bite forces than any other in your mouth, and are also never seen in the light of day, as they live in the very rear of your jaws. This makes your rear-facing molars the perfect choice for amalgam dental fillings from your trusted Ramapo dentist to return your smile to perfect healthy.

If you have cavities in the front-facing teeth of your smile, there are options available from your professional Ramapo dentist that can not only heal your cavities, but can also give you a more attractive smile. Todays dental technology has worked to craft beautiful cosmetic dental fillings that are not only effective, but affordable too. Composite resin fillings are the perfect choice for front-facing teeth which are most often seen by others, and also put out very little bite force. Not only are they safer than metal fillings, as they pose no threat of allergy, but they are also the most affordable cosmetic dental filling on the market today. These tooth-colored dental fillings can be made to match the shade of anyone’s dentin, and can be used to reshape as well as restore your cavities for a smile that is as healthy as it is beautiful.

From composite resin to amalgam metals and everything in between, you can be sure to find the perfect dental filling to heal your cavities and fit your smile at your neighborhood Ramapo dentist offices of Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS. Dr. Lifshitz has been proudly serving your local community for over thirty years. It is his level of experience and expert knowledge that our patients have come to rely and count on to provide personal and professional oral health care for their teeth. No matter where your cavity is located, you can be sure to find the care you need at the offices of Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS.

Detecting tooth decay and gum disease early is a very helpful part of your oral health, but not as helpful as preventing tooth decay and gum disease in the first place. Our Ramapo family dentist, Dr. Baruch B. Lifshitz, recommends a preventative plan that includes strategic advice on how to promote strong and healthy teeth in your life day to day as well as a twice yearly visit to our office for a complete dental exam including x-rays and a dental cleaning.

At your first meeting with our dental hygienist, your oral hygiene regimen will be discussed along with helpful suggestions on how to improve it and maximize your results. That is just the beginning, however. On each visit to our Ramapo family dentist, we will take the time to review your progress and talk about any adjustments that may be helpful. The goal is to reinforce what is already working for you and to make changes to those things that are not. Keeping your teeth and gums in tip top shape is a team effort. We work with you to ensure that. Certainly, proper brushing technique, vigorous flossing, and even dental rinses are a part of preventative dentistry. Another is what you choose to eat and drink and just as important, what you choose not to. Sugar should be minimized in your diet. We will also talk with you about foods that promote healthier teeth and gums.

Tooth decay and gum disease can possibly form even though you are working hard to prevent it. That is why it is still essential to get your twice yearly checkup with our Ramapo family dentist. X-rays and a complete physical examination of your mouth will reveal any signs of potential tooth decay or gum disease, both of which may progress without any symptoms or pains to warn you. When caught early, both are easily treatable and usually you can get right back on track toward optimal oral health right away.

When you consider the pain as well as time, effort, and money that tooth decay and gum disease can lead to, preventative dentistry makes good sense. Our Ramapo family dentist and our entire staff will help to keep you smiling and free of disease to the greatest extent possible.

Not all whitening products are created equal. If you are like many who are vying for a whiter smile, you are probably dealing with a bathroom full of care products, special pastes, and even mouthwashes. There seems to be no end to the array of dental health care products you can purchase for brighter teeth, however, they very rarely give us the results we need. If you want a whiter smile, and perhaps the ability to see your bathroom counter space once more, you can find truly effective whitening treatments that will work specifically for you at your local Ramapo cosmetic dentist office of Baruch B. Lifshitz, DDS.

Whitening your teeth can be much more difficult than it seems. Many of your favorite foods may be great for your overall health, but can still be quite harmful to the appearance of your smile. If you are currently enjoying a morning cup of coffee or tea, these can both cause stubborn stains which are very difficult to remove through home care systems. If you choose white wine over red in the hopes of achieving whiter teeth, the unfortunate truth is that all forms of wine can cause staining of the dentin. Even your favorite fruits and vegetables, such as beets and many types of berries, can discolor your smile in a difficult manner. The basic rule one can follow is simple: if it’s difficult to remove from clothes, the same food or drink will also be difficult to remove from your smile. Does this mean you have to give up all of the above? No, not with help for your trusted Ramapo cosmetic dentist.

Over the counter whitening treatments fail to deliver often due to the simple fact that these treatments do nothing more than provide an item. The products available at your local grocer or pharmacy do not answer your questions, or work with you to develop a personalized whitening and dental hygiene routine that will truly work for your smile. At the offices of your local Ramapo cosmetic dentist we offer proven solutions that can only be found through a professional dentist. We offer the same convenience of at-home care, with the effectiveness you can only find from a proven dentist. Our whitening systems begin with trays made from molds of your own trays, for a secure fit you can wear in and out of the house. With our whitening treatments you never need to worry about embarrassing fallouts or finding the time to whiten your smile. Dr. Baruch F. Lifshitz can supply you with the whitening gel designed to lift stains and whiten teeth in a matter of days. With a simple visit to the offices Baruch F. Lifshitz, DDS you can achieve the whiter smile you deserve.
