If you are having problems with your gum, then you need the services of a good periodontist. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the treatment of gum disease. When your gums need help getting better, you will want to see our Syosset periodontist at our practice of Warren Baine, DMD.
Our expert and highly trained Syosset periodontist is Dr. Warren Baine. Our practice is limited to the practice of periodontics and dental implantology. Our office has been providing periodontal care for our patients for over 25 years. Our office provides a welcoming and relaxing environment for our patients who come to us for care and treatment. Our periodontist is able to provide patients with effective and successful periodontal treatments that will help restore your gums to excellent health. Our office is state-of-the-art in terms of both technology and procedures used to help our patients get rid of their periodontal disease. Among the periodontal treatments our Syosset periodontist offers are: periodontal scaling and root planing, periodontal maintenance, cosmetic soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, pocket reduction surgery, sinus and ridge augmentation; extractions; crown lengthening; and tooth de-sensitizing treatments.
One of the more common services we provide is periodontal scaling and root planing. Our Syosset periodontist performs this treatment when there is a need for a deep gum cleaning. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia. The patient remains entirely comfortable while having this procedure. During the procedure the pockets between the gum and the tooth are cleaned out. Tartar, plaque and bacteria are all removed. The goal of this procedure is to clean out the deep pockets, and hopefully the pockets will then begin to heal and reduce in depth. Several months later the depths of the pockets will once again be measured. At that point, the periodontal scaling and root planing treatment may be repeated. If the treatment is not successful, other more advanced periodontal treatments may be needed to help make the gums healthier. However what is important to note is that you can almost always turn back periodontal disease and make your gums healthy again. If you would like an appointment to meet with Dr. Baine, contact our practice today.
Gum disease can be very serious. Not only can it cause a generalized infection in your mouth that can spread to other parts of your body, but it can also cause your jaw bone to become seriously weakened. When this happens you run the risk of losing one, several or even all of your teeth. Avoiding gum disease is the optimal thing to do. However, many people get gum disease and if you have it you are certainly not alone! Our Jericho periodontal expert, Dr. Warren Baine, can help you get rid of your gum disease once and for all.
At our practice, Warren Baine, DMD, we see patients with gum disease every day. Our practice is limited to the treatment of periodontics and dental implantology. Dr. Baine has been treating the periodontal needs of the Jericho community for more than 25 years. Our practice provides the highest quality of periodontal care in a relaxed setting. When you come to us for treatment of your gum disease, you can be sure that we are employing the very best procedures to help restore your gums to good health. Periodontal disease is often treated with a process called scaling and root planing. When there is periodontal disease, the space between the tooth and gums becomes filled with bacteria, plaque and tartar. This in turn irritates the surrounding gum tissues. Once the disease has progressed to a more advanced stage, and gone beyond gingivitis, a popular treatment option of our Jericho periodontal expert includes the process previously mentioned called scaling and root planing.
If our Jericho periodontal expert feels that scaling and root planing is not successfully treating the gum disease, bone surgery or other treatments may be recommended. Pocket reduction surgery (gingivectomy or flap surgery) may be recommended to gain access to the roots of the teeth in order to remove bacteria and tartar. This in turn will hopefully reduce the depth of the pockets that hold the bacteria and tartar, and put an end to the cycle of deeper and deeper pockets. The goal is to end the vicious cycle that is making the pockets grow deeper, and allow the pockets to finally reduce in size. This will also keep the infection from reaching the jaw bone, which can seriously weaken the jaw bone and lead to tooth loss. There are many things that can be done to treat the effects of gum disease, and our periodontal expert, Dr. Baine, will be able to see you and assess your individual case. If you would like to meet with Dr. Baine for a consultation regarding your gum problems, contact our office today for an appointment.
In order to be a good candidate for dental implants and the many advantages they have to offer, it’s necessary to have a strong jaw bone (for lower teeth) or sinus wall (for upper teeth). This is because the implant is placed into the sinus wall and then fuses to it. The sturdiness comes from this process and a sinus wall that is too thin is insufficient to meet the goal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on dental implants entirely. That’s because our Jericho dental implant surgeon, Dr. Warren Baine, can perform sinus augmentation surgery, the results of which will qualify you to have a dental implant.
Sinus Lift Surgery Jericho
Sinus augmentation surgery, also know as sinus lifts, takes bone tissue from elsewhere in your body and uses it to enhance your sinus wall. This makes it stronger and thus able to accept the implant. Naturally, there will be a waiting period while the new bone tissue spurs the growth of new and more dense bone in your sinus wall, but this delay is well worth it if you are determined to have a dental implant done by our Jericho dental implant surgeon to replace one of your upper teeth.
Dental implants have an impressive success rate of about 98%, so there is every reason to believe that having sinus augmentation surgery done is a good idea to facilitate the placement of an implant. They look and feel just like a natural tooth does. Furthermore, you will be able to eat, speak, brush, and floss normally, with complete confidence. No messy adhesives are needed to keep your dental implants in place. No clasps are required and there is no effect on your surrounding teeth either, unlike with bridges where the two teeth on either side have to drilled down and have a crown put on them to provide needed support for the bridge. The support and strength for a dental implant comes from its fusion with your jaw bone or sinus wall. That is why our Jericho dental implant surgeon offers sinus augmentation surgery; to allow you the opportunity to have a dental restoration that will serve you well for many years to come, possibly for life.
