CT Cone Beam Scanning for Fast Dental Implants

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 2014 AT 4:25 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Traditional dental implants once involved an unfortunate and inconvenient wait between the tooth extraction and implantations stages of dental implant surgery. Our oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, however, offers the most advanced techniques in dental surgery, and can literally bridge the gap between extraction and implantation. New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offers same-day dental implant placement using CT Cone Beam scanning for imaging.

Dr. Mark Stein is one of a few New York oral surgeons to offer Cone Beam scanning in-office, allowing for immediate dental implant placement. This CT scan system accesses the jaw to help plan for surgical implants. The CT machine emits x-ray beams in the shape of a cone, rotating around the patient's head. Helping to visualize the facial structure, New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery's Cone Beam scanning takes hundreds of images to obtain a 3D image of your jaw. This provides Dr. Stein with a clear evaluation of bone density in the area of the decayed tooth. Dr. Stein then uses the information produced by the CT scan to design the shape and size of your customized dental implant before tooth extraction. On the day of extraction, Dr. Stein has a custom designed dental implant ready for immediate placement.

Immediate dental implant placement is a revolutionary procedure offered by very few oral surgeons. The CT cone beam scanning system provides our oral surgeon with precise imaging to virtually design the implant and its exact placement. Call our oral surgery center today, so you can experience tooth extraction and dental implant placement all in one day! Dr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about immediate dental implant placement.

Corrective Jaw Surgery in NYC: Get Your Bite Back on Track

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 AT 3:57 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Issues relating to a misaligned jaw can cause difficulty chewing, biting and swallowing food. You may experience excessive jaw pain, tooth wear, and even sleep apnea. Sometimes, the jawbone can be so askew, it causes your chin to recede and your jaw to protrude, altering your facial appearance. Whether your misaligned jaw often is related to a birth defect or facial injury, New York City oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, offers orthognathic surgery to correct debilitating jaw disorders. So you can experience relief from these symptoms and get your life back on track.   

Corrective jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is a procedure to reposition your jaw and may require adding, removing or reshaping jawbone. Usually, your jaw surgeon and an orthodontist will work together to help realign your jaw. Braces can be used to reposition your jaw before surgery, and orthodontic treatment to correctly align your teeth will be utilized after surgery. Speak to Dr. Stein to discuss how he can work together with your orthodontist to achieve the best results from your individual jaw disorder.

Jaw surgery leaves little to no scarring, as most incisions are completely on the inside of the mouth, though occasionally an incision on the outside of the mouth may be required. You will begin to see results from jaw surgery in NY not long after the procedure, but full results from orthognathic surgery can take 9-12 months. Jaw surgery will dramatically improve the appearance of your face. Patients who have had corrective jaw surgery report satisfaction with their newly gained smile, significantly reduced jaw pain, and often improved speech.

Dr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about sleep apnea and orthognathic surgery in NY. Contact our office at 212.888.4760, or request your appointment online today!

Dental Implants in NYC after Tooth Extraction

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 09, 2014 AT 6:14 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Are you ready for dental implants for your front teeth, but need tooth extraction before placement? After tooth extraction, patients can wait up to six months for their mouth to completely heal and jawbone density to grow. The long wait can leave patients with inconvenient, temporary teeth for an extended time period. Dr. Mark Stein at New York Oral Surgery and Maxillofacial Surgery offers dental implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, resulting in new a smile, faster!

Depending on the quality of your jawbone, the placement of the implant, and the amount of dental implants being placed, Dr. Mark Stein can successfully place a dental implant in NYC directly after tooth extraction.  Dental implants placed immediately after tooth extraction are most successful when only implanting a single tooth. Immediate implant placement has many benefits, including:

  • Reducing surgical steps and treatment time
  • Avoiding the need for jawbone grafting
  • Preserving the soft tissue and jawbone, leading to a more natural-looking implantation

Dr. Mark Stein offers a revolutionary technique for immediate dental implant placement. He is one of a select few oral surgeons to have an in-office cone bean CT scan machine. Having this technology on-site allows him to work with a cosmetic dental laboratory to design a replacement tooth of the right shape and size.  During the procedure, Dr. Stein removes the decayed tooth and places the dental implant based on computer planning. The tooth is immediately placed after implantation.

Dr. Mark Stein and the staff at our oral surgery center welcome any questions you may have about immediate dental implant placement.

Minimally Invasive Wisdom Tooth Extraction Gives Results Fast!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2014 AT 5:14 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Are you considering wisdom tooth extraction because of the jaw aches and tooth pain caused by impacted wisdom teeth? Wisdom teeth removal may seem like an inconvenient and unnecessary procedure now, but having them removed can prevent future health problems.  According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 90% of young adults will have at least one impacted (not fully grown in, does not break the gum line) wisdom tooth. This impacted tooth can cause damage to neighboring teeth, leading to infection and possible gum disease. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, offers a more convenient procedure, so you can properly take care of your oral health without taking time out of your daily life.

Minimally invasive wisdom tooth extraction in NYC entails a smaller incision, requiring fewer stitches, and reducing the chance of infection compared to traditional wisdom tooth removal. If a patient has an impacted wisdom tooth, bone removal may be necessary to extract the tooth. Dr. Stein's minimally invasive technique requires less bone removal than the traditional procedure. Less bone removal results in a less invasive surgery, giving patients a faster recovery time and lesser chance of complications. 

After wisdom tooth removal, our NYC oral surgeon will inject medication into the surgical site to reduce the swelling and discomfort usually experienced from traditional wisdom teeth extraction. Although recovery time will vary on a case by case basis, Dr. Stein’s minimally invasive wisdom tooth extractions usually require a recovery time of only two to three days, at most! 

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons stresses the importance of wisdom teeth maintenance. By removing your wisdom teeth today, you’ll have a healthier smile tomorrow! To find out if minimally invasive wisdom tooth extraction can improve your oral health, call Dr. Mark Stein at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to schedule a consult and further discuss wisdom tooth removal. Call 212-888-4760 or schedule an appointment online today!

Pillar Procedure in NYC Corrects Snoring

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2014 AT 7:23 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Have you awoken after a full night’s sleep feeling exhausted? Does your partner complain of a restless night’s sleep because of your snoring?  You may be experiencing the effects of a loose soft palate. A loose soft palate is a contributing factor for 4 out of 5 chronic snorers. During sleep, excessive tissue can collapse and leave pressure on the soft palate, this pressure causes vibrations resulting in loud snores. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer the Pillar Procedure, a technique that offers an 85% success rate in correcting snoring!

The Pillar Procedure stiffens your soft palate to reduce vibrations by placing tiny implants into your palate. These tiny implants are not visible and cannot be felt. In time, your body will form tissue around the implant, stabilizing your palate, eliminating vibrations, and correcting snoring. The Pillar Procedure is performed in-office, under local anesthesia, and only takes 20 minutes to complete. This minimally invasive procedure requires little downtime, and will not interfere with swallowing or speech.

Although some patients report seeing improvements as early as a few weeks, full results will not be seen for a few months. The results are definitely worth the wait! Patients will notice a snoring reduction up to 80% after the procedure, leading to a quieter, more restful sleep. The results from the Pillar Procedure are permanent.

Experience a more relaxing sleep after the Pillar Procedure in NYCDr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about sleep apnea and the Pillar Procedure. Contact our office at 212.888.4760, or request your appointment online today!
