The ability to smile confidently and chew with ease whatever foods we like is something many of us take for granted. However, for many people this is an issue as many different dental conditions have given way to tooth loss, bone deterioration and the loss of confidence in their ability to smile.
Luckily we can change this. Dental implants are designed to provide a robust foundation for a patients replacement teeth which allows them to look, function and feel like natural teeth. The difference here is that a patient who has lost their teeth has now regained their ability to eat any food that they. Most patients are surprised how easy they find it to smile as now their teeth look and feel natural and their facial contours have been restored.
Like many patients that feel that they may be a candidate for dental implants we first evaluate your needs using our ICAT machine – the only ICAT machine available in Queens. This allows us to get a unique 3d picture of whereby the doctor can address the bone loss and look closer at your dental needs in order to make the procedure a success. At this point we can discuss with you fees and insurance that may be available. There are many types of insurance plans and coverage for dental implants is varied.What are the benefits of having dental implants? Dental Implants Versus alternatives (Fixed Bridges Removable Partial Dentures) DENTAL IMPLANTS TREATMENT FLOW
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts (also know as abutments) that are strategically placed into the jawbone where there are missing teeth. Over time the bone will bond with the titanium that will create a strong foundation on which the crown (artificial tooth will be placed). These implants as well as creating new teeth for the patient, also preserve the patients facial structure and can prevent the deterioration of bone across the ridge where there has previously been a missing tooth. Dental implants can undeniably change the way patients live, laugh talk and smile. For more information attend one of our dental seminars in Astoria or make an appointment today. Our advice is always free.
Dental Implants – Types of tooth replacement we perform | How many Dental Implants will I need? | Dangers of not having dental implants.
Periodontal disease is a serious progressive dental condition affecting the gums and affects millions of Americans every year as they become closer to loosing their teeth. As it progresses the sulcus (pocket or space) that exist between the tooth and gums becomes filled with bacteria and plaque. This buildup including the buildup of tartar can cause irritation to the patients surrounding tissues. The existence of these irritants in the pocket space can cause severe damage to the gums and will eventually damage the bone that supports the tooth. That is why an aggressive plan must be taken when it is found that a patient has an existing case of periodontal disease.
In the early stages of the disease if it is caught early enough and damage is to the gums and bones is not significant then the dentist will recommend one or two cleanings. He will also give you detailed instructions on how to improve your daily oral hygiene and will recommend regular cleanings. If the patients disease has progressed to the advanced stage then the dentist will recommend a special cleaning called ‘scaling and root planing’. The procedure is usually done one quadrant at a time while the area is numbed. In this procedure the dentist will remove tartar and plaque and any toxins that are below the gum-line (this is known as scaling) and rough spots on root surfaces are made smooth ( known as planing) . This process allows the gum tissue to heal and the pockets will gradually begin to shrink. At this point the dentist may recommend specialized dental medications, medicated mouth rinses and may advise the patient to use and electric toothbrush.
After a while the dentist will evaluate if the procedure has been effective. If not the dentist will recommend periodontal surgery - this is normally done to reduce the pocket depths and allowing the teeth to be cleaned more easily.
