A properly fitted set of night guards can help our clients from grinding their teeth. Sometimes, clients will grind their teeth so hard they can actually crack their teeth. We work with clients to prevent this from happening. This type of appliance can also help reduce snoring and fatigue due to do lack of sleep. If you think you grind your teeth while you sleep, talk to one of our dental professionals today to find out about how night guards can help you keep your teeth safe and strong for years to come.
Did you know that approximately 85% of adults will have had their wisdom teeth removed? The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that erupt in some people, but not in others. These can be painful and create crowding in the mouth of a fully grown adult. Many teenagers and young adults have their wisdom teeth out early in life to make room for the rest of their teeth, or to accommodate further dental treatment. A quick trip to see Dr. Michelle Feintuch or Dr. Stuart Feintuch will help you determine if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed.
Bonding and White Filling
Bonding and white filling are good solutions for previously completed filings that may have come loose, become cracked, or have worn away over time. This process is simple and provides a great looking result. Bonding and white fillings involve using a tooth-colored resin that matches the color of the teeth so that it is virtually undetectable. This kind of treatment can prevent further damage from occurring where a filling has been damaged or injury to the tooth, such as a chip, has occurred.
Whether you need to have a tooth extracted (removed) because of injury, decay, disease or to make room for other teeth that have to grow into place, Our Great Neck dentists will be able to help you understand the importance of having your tooth or teeth removed. If another course of action can be determined, you will be offered that solution, but unfortunately, when a tooth needs to be removed, there is usually no other way to go about achieving that result. Our dental professionals will take great care in ensuring you understand the procedures and know what to expect so you can have the most comfortable experience possible.
If you have broken or missing teeth, a great treatment option is to get a bridge placed in your mouth. This procedure is non-invasive and can be done in a matter of hours right here in our Great Neck, NY office. Once you have been assessed and properly fitted for your new gold, metal or alloy bridge, you will have a new tooth that you can enjoy for years to come. With a little bit of preparation in your mouth and surrounding your existing teeth, a mold can be sent to our dental labs to prepare your bridge and then it can be placed in your mouth. There’s no need to remove your bridge on a daily basis, and you can enjoy all the normal eating and drinking habits you did before. What’s more, most clients don’t realize that missing teeth can actually cause damage to your overall alignment, cause problems with your jaw and cause you pain in the long term. Contact our Great Neck office today to discuss your dental bridge needs for your missing teeth.
Before you panic about your next root canal, you should know that this is one of the most common dental procedures done on a regular basis in dental offices all over the world. Most people have a fear of having a root canal done, but the truth is that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than having a regular filling placed into a cavity in your teeth. Root canals are often performed because of an infection in a tooth. This infection can cause a lot of damage to a tooth and the surrounding areas, including the gums. So it’s important to have the infection removed as soon as possible. All efforts are made to save the tooth during the procedure, and once the infection is removed, the tooth is filled with a dental cement to prevent the infection from returning. Some patients require a crown be placed on top of the old tooth because the tooth has become discolored or has a large cavity in it from the infection. While others simply need some white filling to hide the hole made to remove the infection. Don’t be afraid to have a root canal performed. With Dr. Michelle Feintuch and Dr. Stuart Feintuch, you are in good hands.
Sometimes it is necessary to place a sealant on the top of the crown of the tooth where much of the texture of the tooth is present. These recesses and grooves are hot spots for decay and bacteria build up. When it is determined that your teeth are susceptible to this kind of build up, you may be offered a sealant treatment that can help keep your teeth looking and feeling great. This is a very common procedure for children who have not yet mastered the art of brushing their teeth.
Our Great Neck dental office is pleased to offer treatment options for clients suffering from sleep apnea.
