Dr.Carotenuto is a New Jersey dentist who utilizes the latest dental technology and performs many dental procedures including extraction of diseased teeth, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, placement of dental implants, bone grafting and sinus lifting, non-invasive cosmetic facial procedures like Botox and Restylane injections, surgical root canal (apicoectomy), the treatment of infections and abscess, treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders, diagnosis and treatment of oral pathology and facial trauma, oral cancer screening, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.
A dental implant surgeon in Roselle Park, NJ, Dr. Carotenuto has been placing dental implants for over twenty years. He can restore a single tooth or the entire mouth and works in conjunction with your general dentist. He performs these procedures with both local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Patients are referred to Dr. Carotenuto by general dentists and other dental specialists for a variety of reasons. It may be a complicated extraction or impaction. It might be a bad abscess with facial swelling or even a broken jaw. Patients are welcome to call for a consultation without a referral though.
3D imaging has proven itself to be of vital importance in the placement of implants.
We use 3D Imaging to determine the optimal size of the implant for maximum surface area and the optimal angulation for proper crown fabrication. We can visualize and avoid critical structures like the nerve and sinus.
When indicated we use it to make surgical guides to facilitate the placement of multiple implants and single implants that require special angulation.
We also use a scanner that creates a digital 3-D model of the mouth which we use to make those surgical guides but also helps your general dentist to make extremely accurate crowns.
Some patients who would like to have dental implants placed but have been told they have insufficient bone are referred as well. Many times bone regeneration can be performed utilizing bone graft material or a sinus lift can be done to allow implant placement.
When teeth treated with root canal therapy begin to fail, Dr. Carotenuto can surgically treat the end of the root to remove the recurrent infection. This procedure termed an apicoectomy allows patients to keep these teeth. Dr. Carotenuto treats patients experiencing pain in the temporomandibular joint with conservative nonsurgical therapy as well as with surgery.
Every attempt is made to see patients with emergencies ASAP. Dr. Carotenuto prides himself on being very accessible to his patients.
