Teeth in a Day has a major advantage over traditional implant treatments in that you can often get a new denture on the same day as the implant surgery. However, your implants will still need time to join with your jawbone, so you’ll need to be careful about what you eat or drink during this period. The following post can give you an idea of what your diet will look like after Teeth in a Day surgery.

Back-To-School Essentials: A Healthy Smile

August 4, 2022

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 8:17 pm

It may still be summer, but the first day of school will be here before you know it! One of the best ways to set your child up for success this school year, is to ensure they have a healthy smile. So, when making your back-to-school check list, do not forget to include a visit for your kids to see the dentist for a checkup and professional cleaning.

Did you know that cavities are the most common chronic disease affecting school-age kids? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI):

“Children with poor oral health are nearly three times more likely to miss school as a result of dental pain. Absences caused by (oral) pain were associated with poorer school performance. Children with poorer oral health status were more likely to experience dental pain, miss school, and perform poorly in school. These findings suggest that improving children’s oral health status may be a vehicle to enhancing their educational experience.”

Here are some tips on how what to expect during your child’s back-to-school dental checkup and how to ensure they have a good experience:

Healthy Habits Start at Home

Visiting the dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and a thorough exam of your child’s mouth, teeth and gums is the best way to detect and prevent any issues that can cause pain or make it challenging for them to speak or eat, all of which can lead to school absences. Equally important is establishing healthy dental habits that are practiced at home, including brushing at least twice a day for a full two minutes – try using a timer to make it more fun – and brushing at night, as well as using mouth rinse. As your child gets older, be sure to encourage their abilities to care for their teeth independently, but still be supportive and helpful when needed. Teenagers especially still need reminders and accountability for establishing good oral hygiene habits that will last them a lifetime.

Plan Wisely

Going to the dentist can be both exciting and nerve wracking, so scheduling your visit at the optimal time is very important. Try to avoid scheduling it at the end of a busy day, when your child will be tired out from camp or other activities. Make sure they are well fed – since hungry usually equals cranky. If they eat a snack or meal prior to the visit, try to brush their teeth afterwards. If you can’t brush, swishing water around their mouth to remove food particles is the next best thing! If your children are still napping, try to take them after their nap time so they are well rested.

Come With Questions

Once you are at the dental office for your child’s checkup, there will be a lot going on, from filling out forms, to listening to what the doctor and hygienist have to say, to holding your child’s hand. So, don’t wait until after the appointment has begun to try to think of questions and/or concerns.  Take some time prior to the visit to make a list.  Some things to consider asking or discussing upon arrival could include:

  • Do you plan to take x-rays of my child’s teeth today?
  • Should my child’s mouthguard be examined and/or replaced?
  • How is my child’s dental health overall and are there any things we can be doing differently to improve it?
  • Will my child need braces?
  • Any concerns you may have about your child’s oral health

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

July 6, 2022

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 4:34 pm

No matter how many teeth you’re missing, we can design a dental implant treatment to help!

Missing 1 Tooth

While dental bridges have been considered a suitable tooth replacement for single missing teeth over several years, this type of restoration requires that adjacent natural teeth be significantly altered in order to support its fixed placement. Alternatively, dental implants are capable of replacing the single tooth without sacrificing the health or thriving structure of the teeth around it, which is much more ideal for your ongoing well being.

Missing Multiple Teeth

An implant fixed bridge or partial is designed to attach over multiple placed implants, providing excellent function, comfortable, and aesthetic quality. They will also stay permanently in place (just like real teeth) with no removal necessary. Patients should become used to their new tooth replacement in just a short time, and they’ll experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew and speak.

Missing All Teeth

Implant dentures are customized prosthetics that are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth, whether it’s the top, the bottom, or the entire mouth. If you’re feeling frustrated with the lack of stability, embarrassing slippage, and unpleasant adhesive use associated with traditional dentures, these appliances can provide your smile with a much greater degree of stability and permanence, as well as valuable oral health benefits. Implant dentures can be permanent or removable in nature, depending on the patient’s current health and personal preferences.

The last thing our team wants to do is leave you without any teeth to smile with, eat with, or enjoy life to the fullest with. That’s why for eligible candidates, we highly recommend Teeth in a Day as a great solution to extensive tooth loss. With this state-of-the-art technique, Dr. Oshidar is able to complete a high-tech CT scan, surgically place the necessary implants, and fabricate a non-removable appliance to attach on top all in the span of one appointment, creating a newly recompleted smile that is immediately functional. 85% of patients walk out of their appointment the same day with new teeth!

Keep Your Teeth Healthy on Vacation this Summer

June 3, 2022

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 6:39 pm

Summer is right around the corner! As the weather warms up and the school year winds to a close, many families are gearing up for a fun summer filled with exciting trips. Whether you plan to travel far and wide or enjoy day trips to explore the local attractions, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits while on the go.

To help you protect the health of your teeth and gums, here are our top tips to keep in mind when hitting the road:

Take a Break… But Not from Your Dental Routine!

Going on vacation is supposed to be a break from the norm, which can often mean deviating from our normal daily schedules. While its fine to let the kids stay up late and (hopefully) sleep in … don’t let them forget to brush and floss before bed and in the morning. To help everyone remember – try leaving a friendly note on your pillows.

Be Prepared

The best way to ensure that the whole family can stick with their healthy dental habits when on vacation is to pack all the things everyone will need, including toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash and any extra dental appliances, such as mouthguards, retainers, and Invisalign trays*. To keep toothbrushes clean and germ free – pack each one in a separate plastic or silicone bag, or get each family member a tooth brush cover in their favorite color. If you are flying or trying to pack light, consider buying travel size tooth paste

On the Go

Some vacations are all about long lazy days, while others are action-packed without a dull moment. On busy days, bring a travel sized bottle of mouthwash along for the ride. If you can’t brush your teeth after each meal, using mouthwash to rinse away residual food particles is the next best thing!

Water Wisely

Drinking enough water to stay hydrated is important for so many different aspects of our health – including our oral health. It helps the body produce enough saliva to flush away harmful sugars and debris left on your teeth after you eat or drink. But before you start chugging water on vacation – especially when traveling overseas or to a third-world country – be sure to research the safety of the drinking water. If you are visiting a place where it is recommended that people only drink bottled water, then you should avoid rinsing your tooth brush in the sink as well!

ICE (In Case of Emergency)

Despite our best efforts to be proactive and prevent any dental emergencies while on vacation, accidents can happen or problems arise. If you or one of your family members does have any issues with their teeth, gum or mouth while away, start by calling us at 908-245-1745 or emailing our office at We can offer you guidance before you rush to an emergency room, and in some cases may be able to resolve your issue over the phone.

Visit the Dentist

The best way to avoid having dental issues arise and put a possible damper on your vacation fun, is to visit us at Roselle Park Dental & Implants for an annual checkup before the summer starts and you head off on your adventures. Having our skilled doctors and staff thoroughly clean and examine your mouth, teeth, and gums is the best way to prevent any problems before they wreak havoc on your trip.

Check Your Mouth!

April 27, 2022

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 3:26 pm

This year an estimated 54,000 new cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed in the United States. If it is not caught and treated early, oral or oropharyngeal cancer can lead to long-term problems, including difficulties with eating and speaking, facial disfigurement and even death.

Luckily, when these cancers are detected and treated early enough, related health problems and mortality rates can be dramatically reduced. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of oral cancer is key to early detection!

As the 23rd annual Oral Cancer Awareness month comes to a close, the Oral Cancel Foundation, urges you to schedule an oral cancer screening now! Also, visit their “Check Your Mouth” website for tools and information about how to regularly check for signs of oral cancer at home in-between screenings.

Symptoms of Oral Cancer Not to be Ignored:

  • Any sore or ulceration that does not heal within 14 days.
  • A red, white, or black discoloration of the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Any abnormality that bleeds easily when touched (friable).
  • A lump or hard spot in the tissue, usually border of the tongue (induration).
  • Tissue raised above that which surrounds it; a growth (exophytic).
  • A sore under a denture, which even after adjustment of the denture, does not heal.
  • A lump or thickening that develops in the mouth.
  • A painless, firm, fixated lump felt on the outside of the neck, which has been there for at least two weeks.
  • All the above symptoms have the commonality of being persistent and not resolving.

Symptoms of HPV-Caused Oropharyngeal Cancer*:

  • Hoarseness or sore throat that does not resolve within a few weeks.
  • A swollen tonsil on just one side. This is usually painless.
  • A painless, firm, fixated lump felt on the outside of the neck, which has been there for at least two weeks.
  • A persistent cough that does not resolve after many days.
  • Difficulty swallowing; a sensation that food is getting caught in your throat.
  • An earache on one side (unilateral) which persists for more than a few days.
  • All the above symptoms have the commonality of being persistent and not resolving.

*Symptoms may include one or more of the following which may persist longer than two-three weeks. Always call your dentist right away if there are any immediate concerns.

At Roselle Park Dental, we perform oral cancer screenings as part of every routine dental checkup as a courtesy to all our patients. Our dentists and hygienists will thoroughly check your mouth, teeth, gums, and tongue for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions. Also, making sure to check your mouth in the mirror once a month for any of the symptoms listed above is vital! If oral cancer is caught early, there is a greater chance that it can be cured.

Call us today at (908) 998-4698 or visit us online to schedule your next oral cancer screening today!
