Dentistry for Children And Young Adults

Dr. Silberman is happy to treat children generally starting at age three. There is a great emphasis on ensuring that children grow up not being afraid of visiting a dentist. The first visit usually involves a tour of the office facilities and the equipment commonly used in an interactive and non-threatening manner. This introduction may be all that is accomplished…


Cavity Treatment

Modern dentistry has advanced in recent years to allow the patient multiple treatment options in solving the common problem of tooth decay. Often there are different solutions to a particular problem. For example, for an area of tooth decay one might consider a silver amalgam filling, a white composite filling, a porcelain filling or even a gold filling- all…


Implants

An implant is a man made root, made of surgical titanium (like artificial hips or knees), that is implanted into the upper or lower jaw (not as painful as it sounds!). On top of this implant is placed a crown, non-removable bridge or removable bridge such as a denture. One of the benefits of an implant is that teeth next to the space being filled…


Root Canals

Sadly root canals have had bad press over the years. However in Dr. Silberman’s office he would prefer one to think of a root canal as a special filling- nothing more. What is a root canal? The purpose of a root canal is to remove the diseased nerve of a tooth, disinfect that area and fill that space with a rubber like material. The tooth and root stays intact…

If the air passage is constricted because the tongue is relaxed backward, say when we sleep, then snoring can occur. When we are awake and sitting upright, the tongue…


Comprehensive Orthodontics

Comprehensive orthodontics is an effort to correct the dentition to an ideal arrangement. This is in contrast to limited orthodontics or “Short Term Orthodontics” also known as “Six Months Orthodontics” where the objective is to rather quickly straighten just the upper or lower front teeth. The latter is somewhat of a compromise…

Invisalign has helped people all over the world achieve the smiles they have always wanted, without fixed braces. Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses custom made clear, thin plastic trays -or aligners as they are called- to incrementally straighten your teeth. No wires or brackets are needed. One wears the custom-made aligners for two weeks at a time…


Gum Treatment

Of the corrective procedures in dentistry today treatment for gum disease is among the most difficult. Not that is painful, but it requires the most cooperation and dedication from the patient to be successful. Gum disease is something we can treat but not necessarily cure. In the past gum disease was largely treated by extractions and surgery…


Joint/Muscle Treatment

TMJ problems are problems associated with the jaw joints and or muscles of the head and neck. Included in this category of problems are clenching, grinding of the teeth, frequent headaches, and pain of the muscles around the jaws.
