Dental Implants Offer a Stable Alternative to Removable Dentures and Bridges

POSTED ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2011 AT 9:43 AM by Dr. Mark Stein

Don’t let your missing teeth keep you from eating the foods you love and smiling with confidence. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Implant Center, Dr. Mark Stein can improve the form and function of your smile by replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants.

If you’re considering dental implants in New York City, it’s important that you have a working knowledge of how they function. Dental implants are small titanium screws that are surgically implanted directly into the jaw bone. These posts will serve as secure anchors for a replacement tooth or a set of replacement teeth. After your initial surgery, your dental implants will need to heal over the course of several months. During this time, the dental implants will slowly integrate into the structure of your jaw bone, forming a secure bond. Once the implants have had an adequate amount of time to heal, your dental implants will be ready to support a high-quality dental prosthesis that looks and function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat the foods you want and love your smile again.

In addition to the cosmetic benefits of replacing a missing tooth or missing teeth with dental implants, there are also many functional advantages of dental implants over other methods of replacement teeth. Many patients find removable dentures and bridges uncomfortable and inconvenient, and they often shift and click while being worn. They can also cause damage to your remaining healthy teeth, as dental bridges rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Additionally, dental implants help prevent bone deterioration and gum erosion. When teeth are lost, the jawbone begins to atrophy, or diminish in size. While dentures and bridges can replace the function of missing teeth, they can not prevent the jaw bone from atrophying. Since dental implants are placed directly into the bone as anchors for permanent replacement teeth, the jaw bone does not atrophy because it still serves the same function as if it were supporting your own natural tooth.    

Dr. Stein performs over one thousand dental implant procedures each year, so you can be confident that you’re placing your smile in capable hands when you visit our Dental Implant Center.

Dr. Stein’s Summer Wisdom Tooth Special Still Available!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2011 AT 10:56 AM by Dr. Mark Stein

If you’re like most people, you’ll eventually experience issues with your wisdom teeth. While it’s true that some wisdom teeth grow in properly and don’t need to be removed, The American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) estimates that approximately 85% of wisdom teeth will eventually need to be extracted.

Even if you’re not currently experiencing problems with your wisdom teeth, it’s important to have them checked out. Wisdom teeth can begin creating problems long before they erupt or show any outward symptoms, and ignoring them now can cause significant problems later. In fact, AAOMS suggests that wisdom teeth be extracted before they begin to cause problems. Leading New York oral & maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Mark Stein recommends that wisdom teeth be evaluated early, usually while the patient is in their mid-teens.

Five Reasons Why It’s Unwise to Ignore Your Wisdom Teeth:

  1. Did you have braces? Your incoming wisdom teeth can change the alignment of your teeth, undoing the time (and money!) you’ve put into orthodontia.
  2. Food and bacteria can get trapped in your wisdom teeth, potentially leading to tooth decay.
  3. Because your mouth is not intended to comfortably hold that many teeth, your wisdom teeth may grow in sideways, partially emerged, or completely impacted. This can be very uncomfortable.
  4. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause serious jaw and nerve damage – also uncomfortable.
  5. Wisdom teeth can cause structural damage to the surrounding teeth, such as breaking, chipping, cracking, and shifting.

Now through August 31, 2011, Dr. Stein is offering patients $200 off wisdom teeth extraction when all four wisdom teeth are removed in our office. This offer is for non-insurance participating patients only.

For more information about wisdom teeth extraction or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stein to discuss the procedure, please call 212-888-4760 or visit Dr. Stein’s website.
