Canarsie dental implants
If you have missing teeth that you want to have replaced with dental implants, you should come to our Brooklyn Dental Group for care. Our top-notch dentist, Dr. Martin Bodek will be able to guide you through the entire implant process so that you get attractive and fully-functional Canarsie dental implants.
When you come to our office wanting to get Canarsie dental implants, our dentist will first assess your individual situation to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. In order to be a good candidate for dental implants, your jawbone will need to be healthy and thick enough to withstand the oral surgery. Our dentist will then refer you to an expert oral surgeon who will be able to actually surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. It is very important that a doctor who is highly skilled in the exact placement of dental implants performs the surgery. This is because proper placement of the dental implants is important to ensure that the entire dental implant procedure is successful. There will then be a waiting time of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal, and the dental implant, or dental implants will completely fuse to the jawbone. A dental implant can serve as the base for a single tooth, or can be the base for bridgework. Our dentist will then make the perfect crown or bridgework restoration to replace the missing teeth. This is very important as it will ensure that adjacent teeth do not move over to try to fill in the gap left by the missing teeth. At the completion of the healing process, our dentist will provide you with the bridgework or permanently attach the dental implant crown to the top of the dental implant root.

Dental Care in Canarsie
In order to keep your teeth healthy, one of the most important things you can do is to come to our dental practice for dental teeth cleanings every six months. Even with the very best at-home teeth cleaning regimen, some plaque and bacteria will remain on teeth. When plaque is allowed to remain on teeth for even a short amount of time, tarter will form. Tarter is a hard, mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth and can only be removed with professional dental cleaning instruments. For this reason, it is very important that you visit our practice for dental cleanings to remove all tartar, plaque, and bacteria from the teeth that your brushing has missed. Getting dental care in Canarsie will help your teeth and gums stay healthy.
At our dental practice, Brooklyn Dental Group, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Martin Bodek. Dr. Bodek has been providing exemplary dental care to the Flatbush area and surrounding communities for many years. We encourage all of our patients to be proactive about their dental care. Coming in for periodic dental exams and teeth cleanings are instrumental in making sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. It is impossible to have healthy teeth when your gums are not healthy. When gum disease takes hold in your mouth, the infection can travel down to your jawbone, which will cause teeth to loosen and possibly even fall out. This is just one reason why you definitely do not want to get gum disease. With preventive dental care in Canarsie, you stand the greatest chance of keeping your teeth clean and gums healthy.
When you have your teeth cleaned at our dental practice, plaque will also be removed from your teeth. Plaque has a way of hiding in corners and between teeth which makes it difficult for you to remove, even with the best of flossing and brushing methods. When your teeth are very close together, this can be especially difficult. During a professional teeth cleaning, any plaque will be removed, and plaque buildup will be avoided. This means also that tarter will not form on your teeth. Without plaque buildup or tartar on your teeth, it is not likely that deep pockets will form between your teeth and gums. When these pockets form they will gather plaque, tarter, bacteria, and food debris, and infection will form. If this happens, you will need a periodontal treatment of scaling and root planing to remove all substances from the deep pockets. Hopefully this will help your gums to heal, and return to good health. For an appointment for great dental care in Canarsie, contact us today.
Teeth cleaning in Canarsie
When it comes to taking care of your teeth and your gums, there are plenty of different services that your dentist can provide for you. One of the most basic procedures you can get at the dentist is a routine dental cleaning, which is essential when it comes to fighting off cavities and gum disease. But should you develop either one of those conditions you may require a different kind of treatment, such as a periodontal cleaning. Here at Brooklyn Dental Group we can provide you with teeth cleaning in Canarsie if you are in for a routine dental visit, or on the other hand we can provide you with a periodontal cleaning if you happen to have gum disease.
Everyone knows just how important it is that they brush their teeth on a daily basis. Generally, you should brush your teeth between meals in order to limit the amount of plaque buildup that accumulates when you eat throughout the day since plaque is what causes tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque and other harmful bacteria in your mouth can react acidically with sugars and starches in the food that you eat, systematically weakening your tooth enamel and gums and making them more susceptible to decay or disease. Routine teeth cleanings in Canarsie here at Brooklyn Dental Group can help limit the amount of stubborn and hard to reach plaque that you may have in your mouth, and visiting about once every six months or so will ensure a thorough job. Periodontal cleanings are different, though, and are used to help treat gum disease. Gum disease causes gum recession, for pockets to form along the gumline and fill with plaque and it may even cause significant tooth, tissue and even bone loss. Periodontal cleanings are a more intensive version of a regular dental cleaning and involve scaling and root planing as well.
Whether you are in need of some periodontal treatment or a simple teeth cleaning in Canarsie, we here at Brooklyn Dental Group can help. With the right treatments our dentist can help restore your dental health and maintain it overall for years to come.
