Enjoy Holiday Foods Again with a Sinus Lift in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2012 AT 9:30 AM by Dr. Mark Stein

Will you have trouble enjoying your favorite holiday treats this season due to a lost or missing tooth? Tooth loss not only makes it hard to eat your favorite foods, it can have a significant impact on your jaw.

When a tooth becomes absent in the mouth, surrounding teeth can collapse inward to where the missing molar once resided. This not only causes misalignment of the jaw, it can lead to a loss of bone density. Although a lost tooth is one of the most common instances that leads to weak jawbone, the structure of the jaw may also be negatively affected by other conditions, including trauma, infection, gum disease, surgery, and congenital defects.

Patients who experience tooth loss often choose to opt for dental implants. Unfortunately, many patients may not believe they qualify for dental implants due to low jawbone density or their sinuses being too close to the jaw. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Center, Dr. Mark Stein can help you qualify for dental implants with jawbone grafting & sinus lift in NYC.

Once bone density is lost, it is crucial to talk to your oral surgeon in New York to help regain jawbone. Lost jawbone not only makes qualifying for dental treatments difficult, it can have an effect on your appearance, creating a hollow facial structure, older appearance, and misaligned teeth. Luckily, however, you can regain lost jawbone density with a dental bone graft in NYC.

When performing jawbone grafting in NYC, Dr. Stein can take your own bone from other areas if the mouth or body and insert it into the less dense area of the jaw. Similarly, patients can choose their new bone to come from artificial cadaver bone or Bone Morphogenic Protein, also known as BMP. BMP is a natural protein that stimulates bone growth and eliminates the need for a bone harvesting procedure. Although bone grafting allows us to provide secure placement of dental implants, some patients may discover that there is not enough room within the jaw to support these grafts. In these instances, Dr. Stein can perform a sinus lift in NYC.

During a sinus lift, the sinus membrane is lifted upward. Consequently, enough space is created for bone grafts to grow. Using advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Stein gently moves the sinus membrane away from the jawbone, creating space for the bone graft to take place. One the graft is positioned into the jaw and heals, secure placement of your dental implants in New York may take place.    

Keep your smile healthy and get back to enjoying your favorite foods! Learn more about sinus lift in NYC & talk to Dr. Stein about your dental implants today. Dr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about bone grafting or sinus lift in NYC.

For those of us who are self-conscious about our smile however, eating and smiling in front of others can create feelings of embarrassment and anxiety. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we understand the emotional impact an unsatisfied smile can provoke. We also understand that sometimes, patients need rejuvenation quickly and efficiently. For these patients, we provide options, such as Teeth in an Hour™ and cosmetic injections in New York City.

With advances in dentistry however, Dr. Stein can now proudly offer patients our Teeth in an Hour™ system. This novel system not only provides “teeth in an hour,” most patients find themselves able to eat within the same day. In addition to a refreshed smile, replacing missing teeth can keep the jaw strong and preserve facial structure.

For patients looking for a little extra lift this season, Dr. Stein provides cosmetic injections in New York City. Create a more rejuvenated you for the holidays with our dermal fillers, BOTOX® in NYC and Restylane® in New York.

Get Your Smile Back with Temporary Anchorage Devices in NY

POSTED ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 08, 2012 AT 3:17 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

 The smell of pumpkin spice melts the air and vibrant leaves drift to the ground, signifying autumn’s arrival. As store shelves fill with Halloween candy, it won’t be long before families gather for the upcoming holiday season. As this time of year approaches, sweet treats and tempting foods tease us to dig in, but if you’re embarrassed by your smile, eating in front of others can evoke uncomforting emotions. These feelings can be brought on by missing teeth or misaligned teeth and often times, patients do not realize the amount of treatment options available for correcting these problems. At New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our oral surgeon in New York, Dr. Mark Stein, offers several corrective solutions, including temporary anchorage devices, to assist you in achieving a rejuvenated, healthy smile.

According to Dentistry Today, over 5 million people lose teeth each year. This loss can be due to a variety of factors, including age, improper care, and trauma. Many patients however, do not realize how crucial it is to visit their oral surgeon after tooth loss in order to prevent further problems, including loss of bone density and shifting of teeth. When left untreated, the jaw may misalign and teeth may collapse inward, preventing further orthodontic treatments that may be necessary to correct your smile. Temporary anchorage devices in NY, allow for easy realignment of teeth when teeth shift out of their correct position. This minimally invasive approach affixes temporary small screws into the jaw or roof of the mouth to provide anchorage for orthodontic treatments such as dental bridges or dental implants in NYCOnce teeth are moved into their correct position, dental implants or dental bridges are easily affixed, giving you back your full smile!

Along with correcting tooth loss, temporary anchorage devices in NYaid in braces treatment, resulting in shorter treatment time and eliminating the need for embarrassing headgear. During your teeth straightening treatments, TADs allow for extra oral force to help shift teeth into the desired position.

Dr. Stein will work with your orthodontist to ensure proper placement of your TADs and a plan than meets your individual desires. TADs are comfortable and because they are affixed to bone tissue, are painless to mostly all patients. Upon completion of your treatment, your TAD will be removed.

Prepare yourself for the upcoming holiday season, feel confident when eating your favorite dishes, and correct your smile with temporary anchorage devices in NY. Dr. Stein and his staff atNew York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery welcome any questions or concerns you may have regarding TADs treatment. Contact our office at 212.888.4760 or request your appointment online.
