Back to school preparation can be a tedious task! There are so many items to purchase for the upcoming school year, schedule to plan for the fall and getting to all your doctor’s appointments before school begins.
When planning your back to school check list, don’t forget about your dental preventative care appointment. Preventative care is more than “getting your teeth cleaned.” At NJDC we believe in a thorough approach to dental prevention starting with reviewing your medical history, assessing your oral health, performing multiple screenings for oral cancer and dental diseases, and creating a custom care plan to suite your dental needs for the best long term dental health.
Furthermore, our dedicated team at NJDC believes in the link between oral health and systemic health; regular preventative care appointments can help impact your body’s ability to stay healthy.

Introducing Air Polishing, the New Dental Cleaning
If you thought your traditional dental cleaning here at NJDC was thorough before, you need to be prepared to experience the new wave of technology; air polishing! Patients have called it a refreshing and even more thorough cleaning experience.
What is Air Polishing?
Air polishing is a procedure which uses water and air pressure to deliver a controlled stream of specially processed powders in a slurry from a hand piece nozzle. Fine particles of powders are propelled by compressed air in a warm spray and directed into the surfaces of the teeth and gums to flush out bacteria that lingers between them. This pressurized jet of air, water and powder removes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits such as food particles that become trapped in between teeth. After experiencing air polishing, patients describe it as a refreshing, many have noticed that their teeth appeared brighter after the treatment from the superior removal of surface stains.
Air polishing is a state of the art innovation that Dr. Orellana has made available in his Denville, NJ practice. Air polishing enables the dental hygienist to deliver an effective and efficient way to maintain the health of dental implants. It is also beneficial for the cleaning of natural teeth, orthodontic appliances and Invisalign attachments. Air polishing is also gentle enough to clean aesthetic dentistry such as crowns and veneers.
