The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. Your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment. Once your periodontal treatment has been completed, your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year. At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.
Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function. Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth. Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions). Orthodontic treatment is provided by an oral health care provider known as an orthodontist, who has completed two to three years of additional training beyond dental school. Malocclusion is the technical term for teeth that don’t fit together correctly. Malocclusions not only affect the teeth, but also the appearance of the face. Most malocclusions are inherited; however some are due to acquired habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. The spacing left from an adult tooth being extracted or an early loss of a baby tooth can also contribute to a malocclusion.
Dental Implants make it possible to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look, act and feel like the real thing. Best of all, they are permanent. Dr. Mendelsohn and Dr. Zhang are both Fellows in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. If you have missing teeth, you may be a candidate. However, since oral surgery is involved, you must have adequate bone density in your jaw as well as healthy gums. A consultation will allow Dr. Mendelsohn or Dr. Zhang to make an assessment to determine whether you are a candidate or, if you are not, to recommend a number of perfect alternatives for you.
Dr. Ira Mendelsohn and Dr. Ethan Zhang combine their artistic expertise with the latest advances in cosmetic dental materials to offer a full menu of cosmetic dental services. Come in for a consultation with Dr. Mendelsohn or Dr. Zhang to determine which cosmetic dental service or combined services and techniques will benefit you most and provide the best results. Find the age-defying, healthy and natural looking smile you imagine.
Pediatric dentistry (formerly Pedodontics/Paedodontics) primarily focuses on children from birth through adolescence. The American Dental Association (ADA), recognizes pediatric dentistry as a specialty, and therefore requires dentists to undertake two or three years of additional training after completing a general dentistry degree. At the end of this training, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry issues a unique diploma (Diplomate ABPD). Some pediatric dentists (pedodontists) opt to specialize in oral care for children with special needs, specifically children with autism, varying levels of mental retardation, or cerebral palsy.
Dental emergencies are quite frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is almost always required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival. Mainland Dental takes emergencies the same day! Sometimes, teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding, or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, crowns, and other restorative devices can be damaged or fall out of the mouth completely. If there is severe pain, it is essential to contact our office immediately. The pain caused by dental emergencies almost always gets worse without treatment, and dental issues can seriously jeopardize physical health.

“I have been to four different dentists in the last couple years and been very unhappy with all of them one horror story after another. Finally found a dentist I love Dr. Zhang. Since I’ve been going there I’ve had root canal, bridge and caps everything perfect. He even fixed the other dentist screw ups. The one dentist that I wouldn’t name that’s on route 9 in Absecon who everyone that knows me knows he put a bridge in and every two three months like clock work would fall out, then I would bē inconvenienced and have it put back in and he would charge me lol funny huh. Charge me for his mistake. Mainland Dental put it in and it stayed. Mainland Dental highly recommend. Dr. Zhang and both of his assistant are wonderful.” — Joan Kurtz
