Our Restorative Services
New You Dentures
Replace your missing teeth and improve your optimum jaw muscle and bite function. New You Dentures are designed to fit flawlessly and compensate for bone deterioration, so no more sunken smiles.
Dr. Rudnick has been trained in New You Dentures at the esteemed Las Vegas Institute. This has allowed him to take a neuromuscular approach to dentures, meaning he considers both jaw bone and bite factors when creating your custom-made dentures.
These state-of-the-art dentures far exceed traditional dentures in customization, fit, function, and appearance. In fact, New You Dentures prevent bone loss, maintain your chewing efficiency, and can last for years if not decades. Dr. Rudnick offers a variety of denture (both upper and low arches) types including permanent, snap-on/off, and glue-in. He will take the time to explain your options and the benefits that each denture brings to your smile.
So whether you need to replace your teeth or your old dentures, look no further than New You.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are conservative and natural-looking tooth restorations for those suffering from mild or moderate tooth decay or who have teeth that are fractured or cracked, but the damage isn’t severe enough for a dental crown.
Inlays: Much like a filling, an inlay is used to treat teeth that have decay or damage within the tooth surface and is placed in two visits. During the first visit, an impression of your tooth is made and then sent to a lab. You will be given a temporary inlay to wear. At the second visit, Dr. Rudnick will permanently bond the inlay to your tooth for structural integrity and to prevent cavities from forming.
Onlays: If your tooth decay extends to one or more of the top projections of the tooth (cusps), onlays may be the best thing for you. These are placed in much the same way as inlays. When you come back for your onlay fitting, the permanent restoration is placed and bonded to the tooth using a strong dental resin.
The advantages of inlays and inlays are tooth stability; they don’t expand like fillings and they provide a natural-looking restoration.
Bridges by Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentistry expert, Dr. Rudnick, are a great alternative for tooth replacement for those who aren’t candidates for dental implants or who are looking for a more economical solution.
Bridges are several crowns attached together that fill in the space of missing teeth. They are typically suspended or bonded to the existing teeth outside of the missing tooth area. Bridges may be designed using a combination of metal and porcelain, or sometimes porcelain materials alone. Once placed, a dental bridge is unnoticeable to others and is completely natural in appearance.
Dr. Rudnick will use his advanced training to ensure you have the correct bridge for your individual circumstances. He will assess your needs and create a tooth replacement that is both attractive and functional.
Root Canal Therapy
When bacteria causes the pulp of your tooth to become infected or abscessed, the only way to treat it may be through a treatment known as root canal therapy. When the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, it can be extremely painful and puts your tooth at risk of being lost. Root canal therapy is meant to free you of this pain and discomfort while restoring the health of your tooth. Although root canal therapy is often rumored to be painful, advanced dental technologies and comforts prove this stigma wrong; root canal therapy will actually help you feel better!
During root canal therapy, an opening is created in order to access the infected pulp, which is then removed. Then, using dental lasers, the canals that once held the infection are cleaned and shaped, treated with disinfectant, and filled with a rubbery material to protect the tooth from becoming infected again. Once complete, your tooth will be capped with a natural-looking porcelain crown or inlay to seal your dental work and leave your teeth looking natural and beautiful.
At Rudnick Dentistry, the latest in dental innovations help us provide experiences in oral health and well-being that are precise and comfortable. Laser dentistry is one example. It makes dental treatment more exact and relaxing, with virtually pain-free experiences and reduced recovery times. The use of a soft-tissue laser has replaced many of the conventional dental tools and has become a useful innovation in many areas of dentistry.
Your comfort and healing time is maximized any time laser dentistry is used. During our laser treatments, soft tissue has the ability to begin healing itself while being treated. Often, so little discomfort is involved during any laser dental treatment that other relaxation techniques, such as sedation dentistry or nitrous, are unnecessary.
As part of our commitment to general dentistry in Palm Beach Gardens, we assist those who suffer from snoring and sleep problems. Snoring, headaches, and sleep problems could be the result of a bigger issue. Sleep apnea has been linked to these symptoms and could be a life-threatening problem if not treated. This disease can result in a lack of oxygen while you sleep, resulting in an increased risk of heart conditions.
Dr. Rudnick uses his advanced training and years of experience to assess you for sleep apnea and prescribe the right solution for your individual needs. You may need a sleep appliance or just some advice on how to care for yourself more. Whatever you need, we are here to help you and guide you back to health.
Millions of U.S. citizens suffer from dental anxiety and countless more are apprehensive about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry dispels worry and eliminates dental obstacles. At Rudnick Dentistry, we offer two types of sedation:
- Oral Sedation
- Nitrous Sedation
These options are all safe, non-invasive, and will fit your personal needs. Our team is experienced in using these modern tools and will be with you during each step of the process.
‘‘Dr. Rudnick is a very patient and understanding person. He is very capable and gentle doctor. I would highly recommend him to new patients. His staff is kind and friendly.’’
