Implants

Are you looking for dental implants? Despite advances in dental hygiene, many people suffer from tooth loss. Dental implants integrate with your own bones, making them a wonderful solution to this problem. Benefits of using implants include an improved appearance, speech and comfort, easier eating, durability, convenience, improved confidence and greater overall oral health. Amazingly there is, no need for extra hygiene products or adhesives, and no embarrassing slips of your dentures or partials - the implant is as close to your own teeth as you can get!
Excited? Schedule an appointment with our highly-trained professionals to get all of your questions answered.

WHAT IS AN IMPLANT?


Implants are artificial titanium roots that replace missing teeth. A tooth has two main sections: the root and the crown. The root is the section of the tooth that is below the gumline. When a tooth is lost or extracted, a dental implant acts as an artificial replacement for the root.

Root Canal

Do you need a root canal? Don’t be nervous; 209 NYC Dental will walk you through every step. Schedule your appointment now and let us take your discomfort away with ease.

Symptoms of a root canal include pain, tenderness, gum swelling and tooth sensitivity. Though all these indicators may make you a contender, only your root canal specialist can properly diagnose your needs. Make an appointment with the best! Our expert dentists are at the top of their game and ready to make your experience virtually pain free.

Still worried about the actual procedure? Let 209 NYC Dental clear your mind: A root canal procedure is performed when the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, inflamed, or dies.

Causes of these conditions include deep decay, a fracture in the tooth, or trauma. The procedure for a root canal is to make a small access opening in the tooth (after dental anesthesia is obtained), and using small, thin, sterile instruments called endodontic files, the dentist will clean and shape the small, thin canal(s) of the tooth. After the canal(s) is/are cleaned and shaped, a biocompatible material, called gutta percha, is placed within the canal(s) with a special adhesive cement to make sure that no other bacteria or debris enter the canal(s). After completion of the root canal procedure, your dentist will determine if a post and crown will be required to restore the tooth. In some cases, very little additional work is needed.

Feel free to schedule an appointment for more information. We’re here to help!

Invisalign

IS INVISALIGN FOR YOU?

Using a set of clear trays, Invisalign progressively straightens your teeth while being virtually invisible - without the need for unsightly orthodontia and with minimal interruption to your daily routine. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign trays are removable – making it far easier to keep up your normal dental routine of brushing and flossing. Invisalign is perfect for both teens and adults and is not just for cosmetic dentistry alone.  Straighter teeth are easier to clean, leading to healthier gums, preventing tooth decay, aiding in digestion and promoting overall periodontal health.
Would you like more information? Schedule an appointment and the team at 209 NYC Dental will be happy to help!

WHAT IS INVISALIGN?

Invisalign® is the invisible and comfortable way to straighten your teeth without using unsightly wires and braces. This state-of-the-art system uses three-dimensional computer imaging technology to fabricate a series of clear invisible plastic aligners and is considered an excellent substitute for conventional braces. We use a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. No one would know you are wearing these aligners as they are virtually invisible. Additionally, you can eat food without discomfort and you will be able to maintain better home care because the aligners are removed during eating and while cleaning your teeth. The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.

HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position. You'll visit us frequently to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 11 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

THE ADVANTAGES OF INVISALIGN:

It's removable for good hygiene – You can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Cleanings are quicker and easier than with traditional orthodontics. There are no brackets or wires to clean around.

You can eat when you want – The aligners are removable and should be removed when you eat. Therefore you can eat anything and anytime.

Straighter teeth can lead to healthier gums – Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than the teeth that are crowded, crooked or spaced too far apart. Properly positioned teeth promote periodontal health.
