Bone Grafting Options for Areas of Missing Teeth!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2015 AT 1:56 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Getting a tooth removed can be a concerning thought for many. When preparing for a tooth extraction, you may not be focused on anything but the procedure itself; this is certainly an understandable feeling. However, it is beneficial to also think about the future when removing a tooth.

After undergoing a tooth extraction, it is imperative that you fill the area of the missing tooth with a dental implant. If not, surrounding teeth may collapse inward—affecting tooth function and possibly altering your facial profile. Many patients, though, do not undergo a bone graft or bone maintenance after tooth extractions. As a result, bone loss begins to occur in the area where your tooth used to be. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein offers a breakthrough bone grafting method to encourage bone growth and formation in areas that are missing teeth in preparation for dental implants.

INFUSE® Bone Graft is the newest way to stimulate bone regeneration! INFUSE® is made from a special bone morphogenic protein that is found naturally in the body and promotes bone growth. Additionally, the type of bone being created as a result of INFUSE® BMP is natural bone—the same that is found throughout the body.

INFUSE® is different from other bone grafting methods in that it uses neither cadaver bone nor bone from other parts of your body—two techniques that may result in several bone grafting attempts to achieve the desired outcome. INFUSE® BMP can deliver precise and natural results, so you can grow a strong foundation for the future placement of dental implants.

Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about INFUSE® BMP, bone graftingdental implants, or any of our other procedures! You can contact us at our New York office at 212.888.4760, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Stein.

Advances in Bone Grafting: Using INFUSE®!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 19, 2015 AT 3:31 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Bone grafting can help treat various dental health problems, such as providing strength, stability, and density to anchor implants and replace bone mass, no matter the cause. For example, many patients who have lost teeth and need dental implants undergo bone grafting to ensure that their bone is strong enough to support new teeth. In addition, patients with jawbone deficiencies lose bone mass over time and look to bone grafting as a way to replace this missing mass. Some patients suffer trauma to the jaw, as well as infection and disease—both of which can adversely affect bone structure—requiring new bone to fill voids left by these unforeseen circumstances.

Here at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we specialize in different bone grafting methods to strengthen your jawline. One such method is the advanced bone grafting material known as INFUSE®.

INFUSE® is a special protein that stimulates your own body to make bone tissue! This protein is often used for bone grafting in large areas—usually spanning 2 or more teeth. First, our New York oral surgeon will combine a synthetically-made bone with cadaver tissue to create a special bone graft. This graft will then be added to the  INFUSE® protein to create a completely unique piece of bone.

When grafted to your jaw, INFUSE® will stimulate your bone to create tissue, so you can naturally grow bone mass and increase bone density! INFUSE® results are extremely successful, with over 70 cases performed to satisfaction. Dr. Stein is one of the first oral surgeons in the country to use this innovative bone grafting method!

Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about bone grafting or INFUSE®, as well as any of our other procedures. You can contact us at our New York office at 212.888.4760, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Stein.

Dental Implants Are More Successful Than Ever: Advancements in Bone Grafting

POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 05, 2015 AT 4:34 PM by Dr. Mark Stein

Gone are the days of the Tooth Fairy. Unlike when we were younger, lost teeth won’t grow back; instead, we are left with an empty space as a permanent reminder. Such gaps are not only unsightly, but they also lead to problems eating and cause overall discomfort. However, imagine getting artificial teeth that look, feel, and act like your real ones! That’s where dental implants come in. Dental implants have become one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth! Unlike traditional dentures and bridgework, dental implants fit comfortably and securely without the need for special care. Due to recent technological advancements, people who lacked the bone density to qualify for dental implants can now enjoy natural-looking and permanent substitutes! By combining bone grafting and dental implant surgery, you can replace missing teeth and ensure the success of anchoring your new teeth! At New York Oral Surgery, Dr. Stein is at the forefront of both bone grafting and dental implant technology!

One such technology is the Cone Beam CT scan, which measures your jaw density and ensures that your dentals implants are placed correctly and can produce the desired results for years to come! When undergoing dental implant surgery, sometimes the jawbone lacks the bone density required to support the implant being inserted; this leads to a smaller implant being inserted as a replacement, which can ruin the entire process. That’s why Dr. Stein offers the Cone Beam CT scan in order to properly measure your jaw bone’s exact volume and density. By recording these measurements, Dr. Stein can determine exactly how much bone grafting is needed in order to properly anchor your dental implants. Once your teeth are extracted, the precise bone graft is placed to increase density in preparation of your dental implant.

Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. and his staff encourage patients to express any questions or concerns you may have about our CT Cone technology, as well as our bone grafting and dental implants procedures. You can contact us at our New York office at 212.888.4760, or you may make an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Stein.

Dr. Mark Stein offers cosmetic injectables, including Restylane®, at his New York City Office to rewind the years. Restylane® provides immediate results that last up to six months!

Restylane® is a facial filler that targets facial wrinkles, including lines around the nose and lips, during a simple, twenty minute office visit. Dr. Stein will inject Restylane® beneath the skin at the site of wrinkles or facial folds, smoothing your skin from the inside out. Restylane® is the perfect quick fix for anyone interested in looking younger without enduring the downtime or risks of traditional cosmetic surgery options, like a facelift or lower eyelid surgery.

Give Thanks For Dental Implants & A Healthy Smile

Happy Thanksgiving! As we celebrate with our loved ones, we meet around the table and share meals, often a time cherished by friends and family. However, if you're wearing dentures, these family dinners may become an embarrassing hassel. At New York Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery, Dental Implant Center, we know the difficulties dentures can incur. They cause discomfort often requiring adjustment during meals. Dentures click, move, and are uncomfortable. NY oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, offers same-day dental implant placement so you can enjoy gathering around the holiday table once again!

A dental implant is a small screw anchored into the jawbone in an area of a missing tooth. Placed upon an implant is an artificial tooth that matches the shape, color, and function of your natural tooth. The dental implant allows you to eat freely without the hassles of dentures. A great solution for missing teeth, dental implants  look more natural than dentures and can help preserve your facial structure.

At New York Oral Surgery, we offer same-day dental implant placement. The procedure is simple. Before the procedure, Dr. Stein works with a cosmetic dental laboratory to design a replacement tooth. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Stein extracts the broken or rotted tooth from your jaw. Following the extraction, Dr. Stein evaluates your jawbone's density using a CT scan machine. He then inserts the dental implant and immediately places your custom-designed artificial tooth upon the implant. You can leave our New York Oral Surgery practice with a new smile all in one day!

Don't endure another holiday season with annoying dentures! Celebrate the season with a new smile! Call our oral surgery center today for more information on 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. Contact our office at 212.888.4760, or request your appointment online today!
