For Children & Teens
Caring for young smiles requires a compassionate approach, using easy-to-understand language. Before we do anything, we make sure your child feels welcome and comfortable. Dr. Bonura believes that eliminating anxiety and establishing trust early on contributes to positive dental care well into the future.
We demonstrate the correct ways to brush and floss during appointments and why it's important. Our team can also apply sealants and fluoride to protect baby teeth against tooth decay. Our dentist continues to work with kids as they enter their teen years, supporting them as they take more responsibility for their dental health. We also offer custom sports guards for active teens and mouthguards for protecting teeth during sleep from bruxism.
Dynamic Dental Care for the Diverse Needs of Adults & Seniors
The oral health needs of adults and seniors are often the most diverse. After many years of use, damage, discoloration, and decay are common. Our comprehensive solutions protect oral health and preserve natural teeth whenever possible. We offer nitrous oxide sedation as a safe and effective way to help maximize your comfort during treatment.
Common services we provide for adult and seniors often include:
Sleep Apnea Appliances – We provide various appliances designed to lessen snoring and sleep apnea symptoms for a better night's sleep. Some options work by supporting the jaw and gently moving it forward to help open the upper airways.
Restorations – Our team offers a wide range of customized dental restorations designed to protect natural teeth or replace those lost. Available options include white composite fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. We can adjust these options to accommodate your goals and your budget.
Root Canal Therapy – Dr. Bonura performs root canal therapy when infection comprises the integrity of a tooth. RTC is designed to eliminate discomfort and disease and save natural teeth whenever possible. Our dentist removes infected tissues and nerves, known as the pulp, from the root canal chamber, cleans the inside, then finishes with a filling or crown.
Extractions – Teeth that cannot be saved by root canal therapy because of severe damage, decay, or infection may need to be removed. While we always strive to preserve your natural teeth, sometimes an extraction is the best option to protect your long-term oral health.
Gum Disease Treatment & Maintenance for Optimal Oral Health
At the practice of Anthony B. Bonura, DMD, PA, our top priority is protecting your overall health and happiness. Sometimes, doing so requires treating treat gum disease. Our skilled hygienists perform tooth scaling, root planing, and scheduled maintenance cleanings for addressing gum infection effectively.
Scaling includes removing toxic plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gumline. Root planning involves smoothing out the surface of tooth roots to encourage proper healing and tissue re-attachment. Maintenance cleanings may be scheduled as often as every three months, depending on your needs.
Why Prevention Matters: The Oral-Systemic Connection
Routine dental prevention through cleanings, exams, and oral hygiene education can benefit you in many ways. Healthy smiles free of tooth decay and gum disease significantly contribute towards proper dental function, beauty, and better overall health. This is because of the close link connecting your dental health and general well-being, otherwise known as the oral-systemic connection.
For example, specific general health concerns can manifest early warning signs in the mouth first. This means that dentists are often the first professionals to discover underlying medical issues during routine dental exams and cleanings. As a family dentist, we can protect your health by analyzing your dental health risks and providing effective treatment according to age.
