For a lot people, going to the dentist can be a scary proposition. But many don’t realize that there are new advances that make the experience much more comfortable.
Dr. Helen Chiu, with an office in Florham Park, N.J., has been practicing dentistry for over 25 years and offers a wide range of dental services. She feels that keeping up with the latest technology is important in order to administer the most up-to-date and pain-free techniques to her patients.
For the last 20 years she has been providing dental implants. When original teeth cannot be restored due to decay or fracture, implants are the solution. Due to the use of 3D scans which can determine in minutes whether someone has the right amount of bone or needs grafting, implants are more successful now than ever before. “In the beginning there were no reliable techniques to repair the bone,” she said. The whole implant process, from start to finish, is done right in her office.
When teeth need to be removed, Dr. Chiu uses a Piazo unit, which eases the whole process. Pain control is one of her top priorities, as is following strict infection control procedures. She also offers a five-year warranty for all major dental work and “when it comes to aesthetics, I will do it until the patient is satisfied,” she said.
Dr. Chiu also prides herself on her office staff, who are very helpful with assisting patients. In addition, they don’t overbook appointments to ensure that no procedure is rushed.
