Impacted Canine Treatment

Just like the wisdom teeth, the canine teeth (the somewhat pointed teeth toward the front of the mouth) can become trapped within the gum and bone tissue and be unable to come in properly. This can create both functional and aesthetic concerns, and rather than extracting them, Dr. G can perform a straightforward procedure to remove anything that is blocking them. This can enable the teeth to come in like normal or allow them to be put in the proper position with the help of orthodontics.

Bone Grafting

After the loss of natural teeth, the jawbone begins to be resorbed. That is to say, the body recycles its raw materials for other purposes. This happens because the tooth roots are no longer there to stimulate the bone. Over time, the resorption can reach the point where the jaw is no longer strong enough or large enough to support dental implants.

Fortunately, bone grafting on Staten Island can address this issue. During the surgery, we expose the jawbone and add bone material to it, whether it is from a donor, an artificial source, or another part of your body. Over time, the jaw will integrate the new bone, resulting in a structure that is ready to support your new prosthetic tooth roots. In some cases, dental implants can even be placed at the same time that a bone graft is performed.

Sinus Lifts

When the upper jaw is too thin, placing dental implants is risky because they can penetrate the sinus membrane above. A thin upper jaw may be due to natural bone deterioration, genetics, or simply the passage of time (older individuals tend to have larger sinuses).

A sinus lift on Staten Island is a special type of bone graft that is designed to address this issue. During the surgery, we access the sinus membrane through the upper jaw and gently push it upward. Then, we keep it in its new position by placing extra bone material beneath it.

After a healing period of three to six months, most sinus lift patients are able to receive dental implants on Staten Island.

Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry

Often, gum tissue has to be removed so our clinical team can work on the teeth or jawbone. Instead of doing this with a scalpel, we’re able to gently and precisely accomplish what we need using a soft tissue laser. It has such a light touch that most patients barely feel anything while in the chair. Plus, it sanitizes and cauterizes the area as it goes, shortening recovery time while also helping healing go faster.

Before Dr. G and our clinical team perform any procedure, we first come up with a detailed plan that is suited to each patient. To help us with this, our CBCT scanner enables us to generate a highly detailed and interactable 3D model of a patient’s dentition. This image shows us both rows of teeth, the jaws, and even the location of small facial nerves. We’re able to be as accurate and conservative as possible because this technology makes it easy for us to consider every aspect of someone’s care before they even sit in the chair.
