We can treat toothaches, gum disease, missing teeth, and TMJ disorders at our state-of-the-art facility. We believe patient communication is a key element in good dentistry. We’ve compiled the FAQs below to help you understand procedures, policies, and payments. If you have other questions, please call us during business hours. We’re always happy to talk to you!

Why do I need regular dental checkups?

Getting dental checkups at least once every six months ensures your dental well-being! General dentist Dr. Michael Katz will examine your mouth for cavities, infections, cancer, and other dental problems. The earlier we catch a problem, the more conservative and less expensive the treatment!

Can porcelain veneers really give me a whole new smile?

Dental technology has advanced dramatically in the last few years, and porcelain veneers have come a long way. The most natural-looking veneers are very thin, and we apply them in layers. The thin porcelain allows light to penetrate the surface and reflect from beneath. This imitates how light reflects from natural teeth, so patients can rest assured that modern veneers look natural.

What is the treatment for TMD/TMJ headaches?

Dr. Michael Katz uses the TENS technology to create relief for TMJ disorders. If you’re suffering pain or stiffness in your jaw, notice that your teeth are look worn, or you experience discomfort in your neck and shoulder, you may need TMD treatments.

How can you fit and attach a crown in just one visit?

One word: CEREC. This tool allows us to create a crown almost immediately, so we can assess, attain, and attach your natural-looking and beautiful crown in just one visit to our Audubon office. CEREC one-visit crowns allow you to get the restorative work you need no matter how busy your schedule.
