General Dentistry in Denville, New Jersey

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

  •  The American Dental Association recommends a visit to the dentist every six months. At this visit, you can expect Dr. Ferraro to perform a thorough exam, including an oral cancer screening with OralID, X-rays, as well as a professional cleaning to restore your teeth to their natural brilliance.
  • Has it been a while since your last preventive visit? If so, call Green Leaf Dentistry today or visit us online to schedule your appointment!

What Is Gingivitis?

  • Gingivitis is a common form of gum disease that presents as redness and swelling (inflammation) of your gums or gingiva. It is commonly caused by plaque or bacteria, the sticky film that naturally forms on the teeth. If not removed properly through daily brushing and flossing, this plaque can harden into tartar, which can only be removed with a professional cleaning.
  • It is important to take gingivitis seriously and treat it promptly. Gingivitis can lead to much more serious gum disease (called periodontitis) and even tooth loss. At Green Leaf Dentistry, our dental hygienists will not only provide a thorough cleaning to remove the plaque and tartar on your teeth, but will also educate you on how to properly maintain the health of your gums and teeth.

What Is Periodontal Disease?

  • Periodontal disease is a more advanced form of gum disease that is characterized by bone loss, which, if left untreated may lead to tooth mobility and eventual tooth loss. Signs of periodontal disease include red, swollen, receding gums, the development of pockets around your teeth, bad breath, loose teeth, and eventual tooth loss.
  • Our goal at Green Leaf Dentistry is to stabilize the disease process, thereby preventing further bone loss, by providing deep cleanings, localized antibiotic therapy and periodontal maintenance therapy every 3-4 months such that your natural teeth can be maintained for as long as possible.

What Is A Cavity?

Even with good oral hygiene practices, cavities can sometimes happen! A cavity, or tooth decay, occurs when bacteria in your mouth produce acid that erodes your natural tooth structure. Untreated dental decay can result in tooth pain and infection and should be treated promptly. Fortunately, Dr. Ferraro and the team at Green Leaf Dentistry will restore your cavity with a natural-looking tooth-colored filling so that nobody will be any the wiser!

What Are Sealants?

Dental sealants are clear or white plastic coatings that are painted onto teeth in order to seal the deep pits and grooves in teeth away from cavity-causing bacteria. They are commonly placed in children on the back molars, which can be difficult to clean. If you want to optimize your child’s oral health by placing sealants, please call Green Leaf Dentistry today to schedule an appointment today!

Green Leaf Dentistry review 1
From the moment I walked in the door everyone in the office was very welcoming! I followed Dr. Ferraro from another office, and she’s more than worth the extra travel! She’s super thorough, personable, and very knowledgeable. I’ve had my fair share of unfavorable experiences with dentists, but she eases any anxiety about my visits. I highly recommend this office!

I simply can’t say how impressed I am and thankful with Dr. Ferrero and her staff. Her staff were very welcoming very kind.For the pass couple of years, I’ve had an issue with my wisdom tooth. I needed to get it extracted, but every dentist that I visit always gave me the same excuse we can’t remove it it’s right on the nerve. I became hopeless. dealing with the pain, until I went to Dr. Ferraro dental practice.
