Our general dentist in Flatbush sees many patients with teeth that are missing and whatever the cause, we know this can be devastating. Our compassionate staff listens to your needs and goals and suggest the best treatment options for you. When missing teeth makes it difficult to chew, a dental bridge could be the best solution. A fixed bridge is a non-removable appliance that Dr. Bodek uses to replace single or multiple missing teeth. The empty space is filled with metal-free dental crowns (artificial teeth), that are connected to the teeth on both sides of the space. Usually requiring two to three dental visits, porcelain bridges are quite durable and will last many years. The bridge will not only restore the shape of your face but can ease any embarrassment caused by missing teeth. Missing teeth can also be the start of other dental issues, including the loss of additional teeth, the shifting of adjacent teeth which causes an imbalanced bite, difficulty chewing, and changes in the shape of your face.

The porcelain dental crown used in a bridge protects the structure of your tooth as well as making it stronger. Porcelain crowns are metal free, and each one is handmade which increases longevity. These metal free dental crowns used by our general dentist in Flatbush, have a more life-like appearance, and will restore a worn-down or fractured tooth to its original shape, size and shade. The metal-free dental crown procedure with our general dentist in Flatbush usually requires two appointments and replaces large fillings and protects teeth from further breakage and decay,. Dental health is very important but we know it’s also important to be able to look your best and our dedicated staff at Brooklyn Dental Group is here to answer all your questions.

How Regular Visits to the Dentist Keep Plaque from Building Up

Dental Care in Canarsie

Do you want to take the very best care of your teeth? If so, this is relatively easy to do. If you have a good daily, at home brushing and flossing regimen you are off to a good start. Then what you need to do is to have dental cleanings at our office every six months, and a dental checkup at the interval recommended for you by our dentist. With this dental care in Canarsie, you will be able to keep your teeth and gums healthy and keep most dental problems from developing into serious problems.

Daily at home brushing and flossing is very effective in keeping plaque to a minimum. However, it is also important to have regularly scheduled dental cleanings in order to keep your teeth as clean and healthy as possible. Even with the very best at-home brushing and flossing it is inevitable that some plaque will be missed and that tartar will develop. Tartar is formed when plaque stays on your teeth for even a short period of time. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that can only be removed from teeth with dental cleaning instruments used at our dental office. However, when you come and see us at Brooklyn Dental Group, you can relax knowing that your teeth and gums are getting the best dental care in Canarsie. Dr. Martin Bodek is our expert and highly-experienced dentist.

If tartar is allowed to stay on teeth, deep pockets will form between the teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, and bacteria will all begin to build up and gather in these pockets. These deep pockets are an effective breeding ground for infection and gum disease to develop. When development of deep pockets is allowed to continue and infection begins, the infection can reach down to the jawbone. At this point teeth can begin to loosen and even fall out. However, the good news is that dental care in Canarsie, at our office, will be able to keep this from happening. Our dental cleanings will keep plaque from building up, and keep gum disease from developing. During your dental checkup and dental cleanings, the health of your gums will be evaluated. If any developing problems are seen, our dentist will know exactly what treatment to recommend to get your gums back on the road to good health.
