At Artisan Dentistry we offer a full array of dental care to the Salem, NH and Newburyport, MA communities, ranging from dental cleaning procedures to cosmetic dental procedures and neuromuscular dentistry.
We also offer all the basic services of general dentistry to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. A healthy mouth is the foundation for a beautiful smile. By practicing good dental hygiene, you can preserve your teeth, keep them strong and prevent gum disease.
We have invested in up-to-date technology to help you do that.
- DIAGNOdent is a sophisticated instrument for detecting tooth decay very early. It uses a laser to scan your teeth and produces a digital readout of any early decay. It will include decay below the gum line which might be missed in a traditional exam.
- Digital X-rays give Dr. Mathew an instant and detailed view of the entire mouth. Using our chair side computer monitor, he can discuss these images with you and determine what next step to take.
- The Wand is a computer-controlled system for giving local anesthetic without using needles. This enhances your comfort and helps those with dental anxiety to relax.
- Laser dentistry helps Dr. Mathew to do procedures with minimal discomfort to the patient

Preventing Gum Disease
Recent research has shown that gum disease is linked to other health problems such as heart disease and stroke. In early gum disease, the gums begin to bleed. This allows bacteria from the mouth to enter the bloodstream and travel elsewhere in the body, taking infection with them.
You can best prevent gum disease by keeping good dental hygiene habits and by going to checkups and professional teeth cleaning appointments regally. Once the mouth bacteria spread below the gum line, infection of the tooth roots and even the jawbone can occur. Dentist, Dr. Paul Mathew and his capable dental team will gladly help you prevent this. Please feel free to ask us any questions you have.
If you have lost one or more teeth, you have several choices as to how they can be replaced. Dr. Mathew can design dentures for you, and because we have an excellent dental lab, they will be made to fit securely and comfortably and to look natural.
You might prefer to have dental implants as a permanent solution. The implant fills the gap left by a missing tooth root, and this prevents the jawbone from shrinking. The new tooth will be permanently attached and will match your other teeth.
Since Dr. Mathew has completed extensive training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), he will approach your general dentistry from a larger perspective. For example, he will test and assess your bite – the way your teeth come together – before doing any dental restoration like a white filling.
One of the advantages of having all your dental work done by one highly-qualified dentist is that it will all harmonize and each procedure or improvement will be done with the others in mind. Dr. Mathew will have your dental attractiveness and neuromuscular status in mind when he performs your cosmetic dentistry. If you need multiple procedures, they will all enhance each other.
