Aside from the aesthetic disadvantages of missing teeth a mouth without teeth can cause problems with eating, speaking and the lack of teeth can cause the gums to shrink and the facial structure itself to change. Teeth restorations from Dr. Abraham Esses, DDS help patients with missing teeth, especially those that have no teeth or only a few teeth to regain their smile and their confidence through the use of Sheepshead Bay dentures.

There are two types of Sheepshead Bay dentures that our dentist uses – full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used to replace all the teeth on the upper or lower jaws while partial dentures replace a few teeth in one of the arches of the jaw. Dentures place artificial teeth that match your original teeth in size and color in a wire frame, which is then surrounded by a base that is made to match your gums. Our doctor will take digital images of your mouth and detailed impressions from which the dentures will be fabricated. Sometimes our doctor will have to extract some remaining teeth before dentures can be made. Conventional dentures will not be made until after the gum tissue has healed after an extraction so, the patient is usually without teeth for four to six weeks. Immediate dentures are placed directly after the extractions so there is no time spent without teeth but these dentures often need to be adjusted several times as the gum shrink after surgery.

While complete Sheepshead Bay dentures are mounted directly over the patient’s gum and secured with paste adhesive, partial dentures usually are connected to the existing teeth or gums through a metal hook that comes off the end of the framework. While dentures will ultimately make an incredible difference in your life they can be somewhat hard to get used to and need a period of adjustment until they become comfortable. Dentures need to be removed and cleaned daily with a soft brush and mild soaps or denture cleaners approved by the American Dental Association and wearers must remove them and soak the dentures overnight in a soaking solution. The patient must also brush their remaining teeth and gums to clear debris. Don’t live life without teeth make an appointment with our practice to learn more about dentures

Toothaches and pains are often associated with cavities, but a toothache may also signify the presence of an infected root canal. Root canal infections can be quite painful and they can also cause the loss of a tooth if they are not treated as soon as possible. If you need treatment for a Brooklyn NY root canal, then you can receive the root canal therapy that you need here with our endodontic expert, Abraham Esses, DDS.

Root canals and cavities tend to share some of the same symptoms. Toothaches and other instances of oral pain may occur when eating or drinking, specifically hot or cold foods, or when open air hits the affected tooth. Root canal infections tend to have a more lasting and persistent pain because The infection is located at the center of the tooth, which is also where the nerve ending is located as well. Because of this reason, root canals tend to be more painful than your average cavity. No matter what though, root canal infection should be treated as soon as possible, and the first treatment implemented to take care of this condition is root canal therapy. Abraham Esses, DDS can provide patients with treatment for Brooklyn NY route canals, first considering root canal therapy which aims to eliminate diseased tissue and tooth mass. Sometimes, the nerve ending is also removed. If root canal therapy is unsuccessful, there are a number of other procedures that can be considered such as root end resections or apicoectomies.

The goal of root canal therapy, or even dental fillings to treat a cavity, is to salvage as much of the tooth as possible without having to remove the tooth at all. The sooner you have a root canal treated, the better. If you need treatment for a Brooklyn NY root canal, then please visit us here at the offices of Abraham Esses, DDS.
