New York, March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Mark Stein offers the most advanced technique to replace missing or lost front teeth at his New York City oral surgery practice. Losing a front tooth due to trauma, accident, or decay can be a very traumatizing experience. It can affect a person's self-esteem, confidence, ability to speak and even eat. A new technique developed by NYC oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, can extract the broken or decayed tooth and replace your front tooth in one day. Patients who have avoided replacing their missing front teeth can now take advantage of this dental implant technique and the care offered by Dr. Mark Stein at his state-of-the-art office, New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
Same day front tooth replacement with Dental Implants in NYC is a new technique that improves on previously used extraction and dental implant procedures, however, this technique makes the process much more predictable and painless. In the past, if someone was missing a tooth or had a broken tooth, the tooth would need to be extracted or removed first, and then some time would have to pass before the area was ready for the implant. Once placed, the implant site would still need time to heal for 4-6 months before a tooth can be placed on the implant.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, Dr. Mark Stein has developed a new technique that allows him and his staff at New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dental Implant Center to remove the broken tooth and place the implant at the same time. This revolutionary procedure was developed by Dr. Stein using his in-office Cone Bean CT Scan machine. He is one of only a few practices to have his own CT scan machine in the office. This allows Dr. Stein to evaluate the bone density in the area of the missing or decayed tooth and determine the best area to place the implant for future stability and predictable results.
Having the digital information provided by the CT scan available to him gives Dr. Stein the opportunity to work together with a cosmetic dental laboratory to plan the size and shape of the replacement tooth ahead of time. When the patient arrives for the procedure, the temporary tooth and dental implant are prepared in advance and are ready to be used that day. Under some light sedation, Dr. Stein removes the decayed tooth and places the dental implant based on the digital computer planning that was done prior to the surgery. Then, the tooth is inserted onto the implant immediately after implantation. This is revolutionary in the field of Implant Dentistry.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are missing a front tooth, wear a bridge that constantly comes out, dissatisfied with their removable denture, or have been in an accident where a front tooth has broken.
