Offering services in English, Spanish, Polish, Hindi, and Punjabi, I have been honored to serve patients in Linden NJ as a dentist since 1992.
I graduated from NYU College of Dentistry in 1991 and opened my first dental practice in Linden, NJ in 1992. I chose to become a family dentist in Linden, NJ because I wanted to educate the wonderful people of our community on the importance of maintaining excellent oral health. Since then, my passion has grown to include becoming a sleep apnea dentist in Linden NJ to help better your sleep and overall health.
Why not a denture or bridge?
It’s true that in most cases a denture or bridge brings back much of the form and function of missing teeth. But a natural tooth does a lot more than help you cut and grind food and give out nice smiles. It also plays an important role under the gumline where you can’t see it … something a denture simply doesn’t do.
Natural teeth need the support of the bone in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, the bone shrinks and weakens. For most people, the amount of bone loss isn’t too serious – there’s still enough to make a good solid foundation for a denture. But unfortunately for some patients, shrinking bone can trigger a number of problems. It can cause dentures to fit more loosely, making it hard to bite and chew. Underlying gum becomes sore and painful, and speech is sometimes impaired, and along with it, self-image.

If you snore, you’ve got a lot of company! Did you know that 45% of adults snore occasionally and more than 25% of us are habitual snorers? Also, more than half of men over sixty snore regularly. Although snoring can cause tension with a spouse or roommate, there's no reason to be embarrassed.
When the food we eat interact with bacteria in our mouths, the result is a chemical reaction that produces acid. This acid can erode tooth enamel (the white part of the teeth that we can see). This causes the tooth to decay. Eventually, a small hole will form in the tooth’s enamel surface and this is a cavity. As it grows, it’s an open door to infection and further decay that weakens the tooth and leads to pain and tooth loss.
