Our Bayonne Office Now Using BioActive fillings

Bioactive materials that are strong, esthetic and long-lasting offer an alternative to traditional composites, that are strong and esthetic but are passive and without bioactive potential materials, and to glass ionomers, that are bioactive but have poor esthetics and undesirable physical properties. The development of bioactive materials is inspired by nature, where water is the source of life. In the oral cavity, saliva is the life source and is rich with water, proteins and ionic components. Bioactive materials imitate nature and participate in this dynamic ionic exchange. They are water-based or contain [...]

“Must Read” from the New York Times

It’s bad enough that expertise is under attack these days from populist political movements that dismiss specialist opinion as just another establishment ruse. But lately expertise is being criticized from another direction, too — from would-be defenders of science. Consider the recent controversy over flossing. In August, a widely read Associated Press report suggested that, contrary to the advice of dentists everywhere, flossing didn’t necessarily foster good oral health. The report looked at 25 studies that had generally compared toothbrushing and flossing with toothbrushing alone and concluded that the evidence for [...]

Dental Insurance form

Have You Maximized Your Dental Benefits?

Most dental benefit plans have an annual maximum. This dollar amount is set by your carrier and it runs out at the end of the annual contract period. For most all plans this is December 31st. This means that when the new year, 2013, starts, whatever benefit you may have left will be lost forever. We urge you to check your coverage to see what benefit is left for 2012. You not only can use this remaining coverage but can often coordinate this coverage with your 2013 benefits to effectively double [...]
