Tooth Extractions and Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Although our NY team of dental specialists always try to save every tooth, an extraction is sometimes necessary. Our Ident oral surgeon can remove teeth that are irreparably damaged due to injury or decay or that may need to be removed for orthodontic treatment at any of our New York Ident locations.

Dental Implants Permanent Tooth Restoration

Some NY dental practices send their patients elsewhere to place dental implants. However, at Ident, the coordination of care with the general dentist is our philosophy. Dental Implants can be performed at any of our New York Ident office locations by our oral surgeon.

Bone loss is not uncommon for people who have lost teeth or had periodontal disease. Ident Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained and experienced in grafting bone to safely and permanently support the implant. Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed also referred to as 'bone grafting'. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects.

Sinus Lift Procedure

Sinuses are like empty rooms that have nothing in them. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth.

Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone a sinus lift procedure by our Ident Oral Surgeon will correct this problem and allow for the patient to achieve a natural smile and their desired appearance at any one of our New York Ident locations.

Nitrous Oxide - Conscious Sedation

The "ideal anesthetic" because it takes effect in less than 5 minutes and because there is a rapid recovery time ( about 5 to 10 minutes at our Ident dental office NY locations). It is a time-tested, safe, and effective method of relieving discomfort and anxiety that sometimes accompanies a dental visit.

Botox a Cosmetic Enhancement and a TMJ Treatment

At Ident, we are proud to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic for both cosmetic enhancements and TMJ treatments. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its kind to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and is safe for use in people from 18 to 65 years of age. BOTOX® injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows. For our patients who suffer from TMJ-related conditions, we use BOTOX® injections to relax the muscles in the jaw to reduce clenching and grinding of the teeth.
