Prepare your smile for the New Year! If you’ve been putting off revamping your smile until after the holiday season, then it’s time to start now! A new smile cannot only help restore confidence, it can help create one of the most valuable assets to re-establishing a strong facial structure. Many times however, older patients may fail to believe they are candidates for a beautiful smile. Although certain conditions of the teeth, jaw, and gums may cause restoration to seem beyond hope, NY Oral Surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein helps patients understand their options when it comes to renewal of a beautiful smile.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, one-fourth of U.S. adults over the age of 65 are completely toothless. Tooth loss can occur due to a variety of reasons. One of the most common causes of tooth loss results from poor oral hygiene. In addition, lifestyle choices, such as smoking and poor nutrition can also lead to missing teeth.

When tooth loss becomes too severe for other methods of dental restoration to handle, patients may turn to dentures for help in achieving a renewed smile. Dentures not only help you restore confidence, they can add facial volume for a younger looking appearance. In addition, dentures help patients regain chewing ability and pronunciation improvement that may have been lost as a result of missing teeth.

Before opting for dentures however, your gums may require revision to help ensure proper placement of your new set of pearly whites. Specializing in Pre-Prosthetic Surgery in NYC Dr. Stein will ensure your dentures fit properly, for maximized effectiveness and comfort. Pre-Prosethetic Surgery includes removing excess bone, reshaping and smoothing bone, removing excess gum tissue, bone ridge reduction, and exposing any impacted teeth.

Often times, when patients have teeth removed, the bone ridge becomes sharp and uneven. In addition, if there is an impacted tooth beneath the gum, removal may be required in order to prevent your dentures from fitting improperly. Because dentures sit on the bone ridge, it is important that the bone is the proper shape and size. Pre-Prostetic surgery allows us to shape and smooth bone to ensure dentures fit securely, comfortably, and safely.
