Orthodontist Ridgewood

11379 Adult Orthodontics

At Middle Village Dental Group, we perform orthodontics for all ages, pediatric, teen, and adult. Straight teeth are a goal that we all share, partly because we want to have the best looking smile possible. But also because crooked or misaligned teeth can cause discomfort and make you more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. This is because they can be challenging to brush and floss between properly. Our Ridgewood orthodontist is prepared to get you started on the road to straighter teeth.

For children, standard orthodontic treatments usually begin around the age of 7. For your child, orthodontic care also covers the falling out of her or his primary teeth and the eruption of adult teeth, which continues to occur sometimes up to the age of 13. It is important for our Ridgewood orthodontist to make sure that your child’s permanent teeth have the proper space to grow in and that there is not a problem with tooth overcrowding. His or her jaw growth and bite will be monitored too. If necessary, braces may be prescribed to ensure that things go more smoothly later.

For teens and adults, we also offer Invisalign orthodontics, an exciting, state of the art system that uses a series of clear aligners instead of the more traditional wire and metal configuration that is familiar to all of us. Invisalign allows our Ridgewood orthodontist to utilize advanced 3-D technology, fashioning from 12 to 48 aligners, depending on your individual needs, each custom fit to serve their specific role in straightening your teeth. You will wear one for about two weeks before moving onto the next. As the name suggests, they are nearly undetectable to the eye. Other advantages of Invisalign are that they don’t dig into your gums and cause discomfort and pain like metal braces can and that you wear your aligner all day and night, even while you sleep. You only remove it to eat, brush, and floss.

Invisalign for teenagers can be especially beneficial to their attitude about wearing braces. Old fashioned metal braces can be socially awkward. The clear aligners that our Ridgewood orthodontist will give them, however, are far less likely to cause your teen anxiety. For children, teenagers, and adults, we have the solutions you need when it comes to orthodontics. Call us today and schedule a free consultation.

Ridgewood Implant Dentist

Dental Implants 11379

When comparing more traditional dental reconstructive procedures, most of our patients find they have a better feel, better look and a more stable solution to their tooth loss once they undergo dental implant surgery. Dental implants have transformed dentistry and our Ridgewood implant dentist gives you a permanent solution to replace missing teeth with implanted teeth that feel and look like your own. Our well-informed staff educates all patients on the entire process, explaining that dental implants are much more than a cosmetic procedure. Replacing a lost tooth is vital in order to maintain the overall health and function of the surrounding teeth. It also helps to avoid tooth movement and any loss of bone from the jaw in that area.

11379 Implant Dentistry

11379 Implant Dentistry

Whether teeth are extracted or missing, one or multiple, it is now possible to replace them with dental implants. Looking amazingly like your natural tooth, an implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain. The first part is the titanium implant body that replaces the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant. Our Ridgewood implant dentist handles your implants with precise skill, placing them within the jawbone with meticulous accuracy. Implants may also be used to anchor dentures that tend to shift when chewing or talking. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a much more natural-looking smile.

Dental implant surgery is done under local anesthesia and one implant, without any complications, will take a little over an hour. Your surgery is done in the office of our Ridgewood implant dentist at Middle Village Dental Group, and most patients say the procedure is less painful than having a tooth pulled. Some patients may have very mild soreness or swelling, easily treated with over the counter medicines, and it’s rare that a patient can’t return to work the next day. Usually titanium, dental implants are artificial roots and teeth and should last between 15 and 25 years. Our Ridgewood implant dentist shares expert knowledge and proven results with each patient, keeping you well-informed and comfortable during your procedure.

Ridgewood Periodontist

11379 Periodontics

At Middle Village Dental Group, one of the most common dental conditions that our Ridgewood periodontist sees in our patients is the development of gingivitis. Gingivitis is a term that refers to the early stages of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Gingivitis begins to develop if there is an excess of bacteria, like those founding plaque, tartar and food debris, that have built up in your mouth and around your gums. These bacteria can eventually form pockets between the gums and the teeth, filling up these spaces and eventually leading to tooth loss and damage to the underlying bone in your jaw. As you can see, gingivitis can lead to serious dental problems.

Periodontal Deep Cleanings Ridgewood

Periodontal Deep Cleanings Ridgewood

If you are developing gingivitis, you are likely to encounter symptoms such as redness in the gums, gum tenderness, pain in the gums, bleeding from the gums, and the appearance of the gums receding. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is recommended that you see a professional like our Ridgewood periodontist as soon as possible. Gingivitis will only turn into more advanced forms of periodontal disease if it is not treated early and effectively. When you come in for your visit, we will determine what kind of treatment option is best for you depending on the severity of your symptoms.

One treatment method that we use for many cases of gingivitis and even more advanced cases of periodontal disease is the use of periodontal deep cleaning techniques. These techniques, including root scaling, planing, and others, aim to rid your mouth of the bacteria that are causing you trouble. Our Ridgewood periodontist may recommend that you visit Middle Village Dental Group for intermittent sessions of periodontal deep cleanings to keep your gingivitis symptoms at bay. In addition, you will also need to pay careful attention to your oral hygiene habits at home.

If you would like to learn more about basic dental health topics and the related services offered by our expert Ridgewood periodontist, please visit the Middle Village Dental Group. Our team of staff is also here to help you if you have a specific question or concern that you would like to discuss. Feel free to call the office directly, or send us a message online. We look forward to working with you.

Dental Office Ridgewood

Dental Office Ridgewood

Let’s be honest: Life sure can be tough on teeth. Even if we’re eating right, brushing and flossing like we’re supposed, and coming in to the Ridgewood dental office of Middle Village Dental Group for your six-month checkups, we can still develop oral health problems. Yes, it may not be fair, but even those of us who really have good oral hygiene habits can develop cavities and gum disease, or suffer from trauma. Sometimes, things can get so bad that a root canal needs to be done to avoid a tooth extraction. While root canals used to be an ordeal that involved multiple visits to the dentist, there’s new technology we’d like to tell you about that can actually get you all taken care of in just a single visit!

Ridgewood Dental Checkups

Ridgewood Dental Checkups

The old style of root canal used to go something like this. At the first appointment, your dentist would give you a comprehensive exam. If it turned out that one or more of your teeth had damaged pulp, you’d come back for a second visit, during which the dentist would drill a hole, spend a great deal of time removing the damaged pulp and then spend still more time filling the hollowed-out tooth back in. Fortunately, however, new technology here at the Ridgewood dental office of Middle Village Dental Group have made two-visit root canals are a thing of past. We use computers to measure the roots of your teeth (which makes it easier for our dentist to clean them out) and we use computers to help fill the affected tooth back in. Before you know it, you’ll be back up out of the chair and headed out the door with jaws full of strong, healthy and pain-free teeth.

If you have a tooth that’s bothering, or even if you’re simply overdue for your twice-a-year comprehensive exam, stop procrastinating and come in to our Ridgewood dental office! (Thanks to the speed of computer-aided dental care, you can’t use inconvenience as an excuse not to visit us anymore!) We promise we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible throughout your appointment. Schedule an exam via phone or our website today!

Ridgewood Queens Dentist

Ridgewood Queens Dentist

At the Middle Village Dental Group, we hope that flossing and brushing are already part of our patient’s daily oral health routine, but there is much more to good oral hygiene than replacing your tube of toothpaste or box of floss when you run out. Successful preventative dentistry is at the heart of what our Ridgewood Queens dentist practices. We are firm believers that more frequent check-ups and cleanings avoid the need for expensive and difficult procedures in the future. We are dedicated to preventing tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease before it develops. The best way to avoid that is to practice proper oral hygiene at home and the best preventative dentistry by scheduling regular check-ups and cleanings with our local dentist.

Dental Cleanings Ridgewood

Dental Cleanings Ridgewood

Booking an appointment at Middle Village Dental Group for a comprehensive preventative evaluation is not only necessary for good oral hygiene but your medical health as well. Since many health problems show their earliest symptoms in your mouth, our Ridgewood Queens dentist will explain how untreated gum conditions can lead to more serious health issues. Conditions like diabetes, oral cancer, and even osteoporosis can be caught by your dentist before they become serious. Left untreated, gum disease can actually cause serious infections in other parts of your body as well since the cause of gum disease is bacteria. Regularly scheduled exams will actually save you money in the long run since detecting and resolving simple problems like dental cavities early on, can avoid more serious procedures, like root canals or extractions, later on.

Once you’ve scheduled your preventative exam with our Ridgewood Queens dentist, dental x-rays will also be taken. Your teeth will then be carefully checked for decay, broken fillings, fractures, and abnormalities. Our doctors will also perform a periodontal inspection of your gums and a cancer screening in your mouth. In addition, we will evaluate your bite and the movement of your jaw as well. During the exam, don’t hesitate to ask questions or express any concerns that you’ve noticed. Talk about your oral hygiene routine so we can get a good idea of your dental health and discuss any necessary treatment plans for problems that might have been detected. Schedule your preventative check-ups and treatments accordingly, and you’ll be on your way to the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

We believe preventative dentistry is one of the most important ways to keep your teeth and mouth healthy for life.

Dental Checkups Rego Park

Dental Checkups Rego Park

At Middle Village Dental Group, our Rego Park family dentist uses both digital and panoramic x-rays. Digital x-rays are a much more convenient practice than the non-digital x-rays of the past. It involves taking the picture and having it transferred directly to a computer. This allows our Rego Park family dentist to easily view the pictures of your teeth and mouth structures, and also to easily keep a record of how your teeth have changed from visit to visit. We also use panoramic x-rays, which give a broad view of not only your teeth, but also your jaw, your jaw joints, your sinuses, and your nasal cavity. This ensures a comprehensive examination each time you visit Middle Village Dental Group, and therefore allows us to easily point out any issues that might be occurring and in need of treatment from our Rego Park family dentist.

If you are interested in learning more about oral exams, x-rays, or any of the other services provided by our Rego Park family dentist at Middle Village Dental Group, we encourage you to visit our practice’s website. There you can find additional information about these topics and more.

Rego Park General Dentist

Rego Park General Dentist

If you are a traditional denture wearer, you know the problems that can arise when it comes to comfort and fit. The shape of your mouth is constantly changing, making it difficult to keep conventional dentures in place comfortably. This is especially true of the lower denture. In addition to our mouths always changing, our jawbone and gums continually shrink as we get older. This, sad but true, right of passage makes it more difficult to hold the dentures in place and to chew food properly. Most traditional denture wearers end up using some type of adhesive to keep the denture in place. Our Rego Park general dentist also knows that some of our denture wearers have problems with the hard acrylic liner that holds the teeth in place. Especially with metal clasps and metal framework the pain caused by these dentures can often be unbearable.

Dentist Rego Park

Dentist Rego Park

Keeping current with the latest in dental advancements and technology, our Rego Park general dentist with the Middle Village Dental Group, alleviates that problem by now offering flexible dentures. Flexible dentures are becoming more popular these days and although a bit more expensive than traditional dentures, comfort and looks are taking priority over cost. Flexible dentures fit very well and allow our patients the comfort of eating the hardest and roughest type of food, such as apples and nuts, with confidence. Much like traditional acrylic dentures, the soft fit flexible dentures have a flexible coating, called a “liner”, that acts as a shock absorber between the hard base and your gums. Another great benefit is that the liner is non-porous so it does not allow build-up of bacteria in the flexible denture.

Our Rego Park general dentist will consult with you to make sure you are a good candidate for the flexible dentures as they are not recommended for all patients. Yes, the cost is a bit more but flexible dentures are more durable, and practically unbreakable, so they will last much longer. Another advantage to flexible dentures is that they take less time to make then acrylic dentures so your wait time is cut considerably. If you wear an acrylic denture now you know how much time and trouble you had to go through just to fit the denture. First there was the wax form, then the denture, and then all the fittings to make it set right so it wouldn’t cause any pain. With flexible dentures there’s a good chance that the initial fitting will be the last and you can walk out wearing your new denture.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you want to make sure that you get something that not only restores your smile, but also allows you to enjoy all of the benefits that come along with a full set of functional teeth. Thanks to dental implants, you can now do that. At Middle Village Dental Group, we know that patients looking to restore compromised smiles want quality results. Schedule an appointment at our Rego Park dental office, and we’ll tell you whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental Implants Rego Park

Dental Implants Rego Park

Dental implants are basically replacement teeth, and they are an impressive alternative to dentures, which were traditionally the only treatment option available to patients who needed something to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are custom-made for each patient and usually composed of a material such as metal or ceramic. Although these materials are synthetic, they are also biocompatible. Dental implants are designed to mimic both the appearance and the function of your natural teeth, and they do so in such a way that no one will know the difference. They are inserted into your mouth and anchored in place by your bone. However, not all patients possess the sufficient bone mass or strong immune system necessary for dental implants. Although procedures such as bone grafting can help facilitate the implants, it is best to take the advice of the dental professionals at Middle Village Dental Group. At our Rego Park dental office, our dentists assess each patient on a case-by-case basis to determine whether or not dental implants are the right treatment option for their needs. Our compassionate team will answer your questions and address your concerns so you can be sure you are getting the best care possible.

To learn more about dental implants, schedule an appointment at Middle Village Dental Group. The staff and dental professionals at our Rego Park dental office are courteous, knowledgeable, and skilled. We understand that patients who are missing one or more teeth tend to feel self-conscious and are generally concerned about making sure they get appropriate treatment. We’ll treat you with skill and precision to make sure that’s exactly what you receive.

Rego Park Cosmetic Dentist

Do you wish there was an easy way to improve your smile? Thanks to the ever advancing world of dental technology, and the expertise of our Rego Park cosmetic dentist at Middle Village Dental Group, there are many ways to get the smile that you have always dreamed of. Some of our most beautiful cosmetic work is achieved with the use of the state-of-the-art Invisalign system. If you feel that your smile could benefit from orthodontic work but are hesitant about committing to wearing unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces, Invisalign might be the perfect smile correction method for you. The Invisalign system involves wearing a series of customized, clear aligners that no one will even notice are on your teeth. Each set of aligners moves your teeth closer and closer toward the desired, flawless result.

Invisalign Provider Rego Park

Another popular cosmetic procedure offered by our Rego Park cosmetic dentist is the attachment of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin strips of porcelain or other similar tooth-colored materials that are attached directly over your natural teeth. Veneers are a wonderful option if you have some minor imperfections such as chips, stains, cracks, or misshapenness in your teeth that you would like corrected quickly and easily. Another added bonus of veneers is that they are completely stain resistant, and they are relatively low maintenance. Your veneers should last at least a year before any upkeep is needed.

To learn more about porcelain veneers, Invisalign, or any of the other various dental services available to you at Middle Village Dental Group, we invite you to browse through our Rego Park cosmetic dentist website and to reach out to us if you have any specific questions or concerns. You can reach us either by telephone during our regular office hours, or you can also send us a message using the Contact Us form on our website. If you think you might be interested in one of our procedures, but would like to learn more about options that are personalized toward your goals, we urge you to schedule a free consultation with our Rego Park cosmetic dentist at your soonest convenience. We hope to see you soon at Middle Village Dental Group.
