A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that is inserted into the jawbone, where it bonds with the bone tissue and acts as a new tooth root. In order to ensure this tooth looks natural, we will then create a lifelike and durable restoration. How do we create implant restorations?
When you lose a single tooth, we may recommend a bridge or dental implant. But in cases where a patient has lost several, or a vast majority, of his or her teeth, we may suggest a denture. We have several options available to restore the health and function of your smile. Which type of denture does your smile need?
If you have minor tooth loss don’t assume the issue isn’t a serious one. Even minor tooth loss can have a serious negative impact on your smile’s health. In order to address between one and three missing teeth in a row, we may prescribe a dental bridge.
In today’s blog, we’re going to take a break from discussing oral health and dental care to talk about the community. There are a number of fun events taking place this weekend in Astoria. Why not get out and see what your community has to offer?
Few procedures seem to make our patients nervous like a root canal. We find this unfortunate since the procedure is safe, comfortable, and often found to be comparable to receiving a simple dental filling. In today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at what makes this endodontic procedure so vital for safeguarding your oral health, especially in the face of infections or abscesses.
When a patient comes to us with a damaged tooth, or with severe decay, we often turn to restorations to fix the tooth and protect the smile from further complications. We may prescribe a dental crown. In today’s blog, we have a fun quiz that highlights the benefits of our restorations and how we use them to improve your smile’s health.
Our diet and our homecare routine can impact our risk of developing cavities. When tooth decay forms, you need treatment to avoid infection or other serious complications. How does a filling treat decay? Can we provide one that blends seamlessly with your smile?
We like to dedicate a couple blogs each month to highlighting fun events taking place in Astoria. This weekend, there are a number of fun events taking place, from Easter Egg hunts to Improv comedy shows. What will you do this weekend?
Every six months we want to see our patients for a routine cleaning and checkup. If we brush and floss, and also eat healthy, why do we still need these visits? Even if you take excellent care of your smile from home, you still need to see us regularly for checkups and cleanings. We discussed checkups a little in our previous blog, but today we’re going to take a closer look at exams, cleanings, and scaling and root planings.
Every few months, we hope to see all of our patients for a routine checkup. But what do we look for when we examine your smile? Why do we recommend all patients undergo a routine exam? In today’s blog, we’re going to look at the importance of an often-underappreciated dental procedure.
