Preserve and protect your teeth's healthy foundation with thorough periodontics in New York for New York City (NYC), NY.
In some cases, when a tooth is fractured, split, severely infected, or causing significant pain, Dr. Toscano may recommend an extraction. An extracted tooth leaves behind a space that gradually changes the healthy occlusal pressure inside your mouth, causing many of your teeth to shift — adversely affecting your bite.
To prevent these issues, Dr. Toscano gently removes your tooth with state-of-the-art instruments. Over time, the jawbone associated with your missing teeth will atrophy and reabsorb. This leaves a receded, minimal amount of remaining bone that is unsuitable for any kind of successful periodontic treatment in New York.
Fortunately, our Manhattan periodontics office now has the ability to grow bone when and where it is needed. To counteract the potential adverse effects of an extraction or reverse the effects of periodontal disease to save the tooth, we engage in a process called “bone regeneration” that promotes bone quantity, accelerates the healing process and offers the most predictable cosmetic options.
Dr. Toscano makes a small incision in your gum tissue and gently separates it from your bone. The regenerative bone material is then placed at the affected site. Using membrane filters, bone grafts or tissue and bone-stimulating proteins, we encourage your body’s natural capacity to regenerate faster. Regenerated bone and tissue helps in many ways, including:
To assess your progress, a follow-up appointment should be made within 10 days.
If you need an extraction and a healthy foundation for an implant or bridge or the possibility of saving and restoring the disease tooth, consider the advanced bone regeneration techniques used in the incredible periodontics by New York's Dr. Nicholas Toscano.
