Wisdom Tooth Extractions NY: Thank Your Ancestors!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 AT 5:45 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Third molars can prove an asset to the mouth when properly aligned, however, the jaw cannot always support the growth of these teeth. This can result in pain, infection, and nerve damage. If left untreated, wisdom teeth can impair other teeth, cause chronic sore throats, and instigate the growth of cysts and tumors.

So, what are wisdom teeth, and why are they so troublesome? The fact is, most people must have their wisdom teeth removed. These teeth are believed to have helped our early ancestors chew rough foods. As evolution went on however, human jaws became smaller, resulting in minimal room for wisdom teeth to grow. Today, this challenge results in wisdom tooth extractions in NY.

The wisdom teeth are the last to emerge between ages 17 and 25. They can become impacted or erupted and even without pain, may need to be extracted. A wisdom tooth is considered impacted when still beneath the gum. If the tooth, however, is fully broken through the gum, it is considered erupted. No matter the state of your wisdom teeth, Dr. Stein will fully evaluate your situation to ensure safe removal.

At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgerywisdom tooth extractions in NY are less painful and easier than ever. Advances in medicine allow minimally invasive wisdom tooth extractions in NY. Using the smallest incision possible, Dr. Mark Stein injects anti-swelling medication directly into the surgical site, reducing post op swelling and pain. With such progress in dentistry, what better time is there to consider oral surgery in NY? Learn more about wisdom teeth extractions:

Dental Implant Surgery NYC: Getting Older Doesn’t Have to Mean Getting Dentures!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2012 AT 4:27 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

As the generation of baby boomers age, the need for dental care rises. Teeth can erode and darken from years of enjoying our favorite foods and drinks, missed cleanings, and even pregnancy and smoking. If you find yourself coming of the age to consider dentures, explore other options at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center. Dentures may bring your youthful appearance back to life, but they require harsh maintenance, including soaking and sticky, uncomfortable creams to keep them in place. Now, you can consider a more permanent solution with dental implant surgery in NYC.

Unlike traditional tooth replacements, dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, fit securely, and can help preserve facial structure. Dental implants can even conserve healthy teeth, so you can continue to eat your favorite foods.  

Dental Implants in NYC are secured in your mouth by placing a small titanium screw into the jawbone at the area of missing teeth, providing an anchorage for artificial teeth. This method allows bondage between the bone and implant, creating a strong and stable foundation. Small posts are then attached to the implants, and the artificial teeth are placed on top. This preserves adjoining teeth and helps prevent further gum and bone deterioration. With options such as jaw bone grafting in NY, most patients can find that they do qualify for dental implant surgery and can avoid the unreliability and discomfort of dentures.

Jawbone Grafting New York: When Jaw Bone Weakens

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 AT 2:50 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Are you missing several teeth? Have you experienced infection, trauma, gum disease, or had any type of surgery done in your mouth? If so, your jawbone may be weaker than you think. Bone in the jaw can deteriorate over time and become a problem for those seeking dental implants. Dental implants need sufficient bone to hold them in place, and without a strong jaw, this becomes futile. Put all your worries aside however, because Dr. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M. D. has the answer for you. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein performs Bone Grafting in New York. By taking excess bone and embedding it into the jaw, you can regain full strength to your mouth.

So where does this extra bone come from, and how does the procedure work? Well, bone can be taken from other places of the mouth, other areas of the body such as the hip, and in some circumstances, specially prepared cadaver bones, or synthetic bone. In addition to this, Board Certified Surgeon, Dr. Stein, may use INFUSE®, a new, advanced protein to promote bone growth. Dr. Stein is one of the first oral surgeons in the United States to use INFUSE®.

Other circumstances for considering Jaw Bone Graft in New York may include, when the jaw isn’t wide enough, or when there is insufficient bone between the upper jaw and sinuses. If the jaw is not wide enough, Dr. Stein may perform a ridge expansion to widen the jaw. When there is inadequate bone between the jaw and the sinuses, Dr. Stein may recommend Sinus Lift Surgery in NY.

We always hear how important strong, healthy bones are, but how often to you think about the bone in your mouth? Let Dr. Stein  keep you smiling, so you can smile with the confidence of a strong, healthy mouth. To learn more about Bone Grafting in New York, contact us at 212.888.4760, or schedule an appointment online. Dr. Stein would be happy to discuss your options, so you can keep your pearly whites happy and healthy this summer.
