A missing tooth could have a tremendous impact on our oral health and could lead to a number of other dental problems such as periodontal diseases. Replacing a tooth or a number of teeth with a dental implant is a fixed solution to the problem.
Dental Implants are artificial tooth and root surgically implanted in the jaw bone to support crowns and dentures by a Dentist 11218 or a periodontist. Permanent teeth are stable and look and feel like a natural teeth. Once your dental implant is completed, you need to take very good care of it by keeping the area clean of infections and regular professional cleaning
Crowns are a restorative procedure most often used for teeth that are broken, worn or destroyed by tooth decay. A crown (or cap) is a cover that encases the entire tooth surface restoring its original shape and size.
Porcelain crowns are the most popular type of crowns due to their high durability and the fact that they feel and look like your own teeth. A crown procedure take two visits and you may feel some discomfort while chewing after the procedure. After the successful completion of the crown by your Dentist 11218, preserving your crown depends heavily on your oral hygiene and doing regular cleaning visits.
Dentures are natural-looking teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are done by Dentist at 11218 when the patient have lost all her/his natural teeth. Partial dentures are performed when there are a number of natural teeth remained.
When a tooth is cracked or have deep cavity, bacteria can cause an infection inside the tooth. This may result in an abscess and causes severe pain.

In the office, Dentists near 11218 will use concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel and in some cases, a special light or, with some bleaching systems, a laser is used in conjunction with the gel. The procedure takes about 60-90 minutes and takes only one visit. Teeth sensitivity may occur during the next few days after the procedure then subsides.
In-office whitening may last few months to few years depending on your teeth’s original condition and your eating, drinking and smoking habits. Patients usually maintain their results by using at-home whitening solutions.
Veneers are tooth shaped shells custom-made by a professional dental laboratory to cover the front service of your teeth to cover discolored, worn, or sometimes to close gaps between teeth to create an attractive smile.

There are many surgical and nonsurgical treatments the periodontist may choose to perform, depending upon the exact condition of the teeth, gums and jawbone. A complete periodontal exam of the mouth will be done before any treatment is performed or recommended.
