Endodontic Surgery Midtown Manhattan

Endodontic Surgery Midtown Manhattan

Endodontic Surgery, or an apicoectomy, is performed by a board-certified Midtown Manhattan oral surgeon after an unsuccessful root canal. When a root canal infection does not go away or returns after root canal therapy, an apicoectomy is usually necessary to eradicate the infection before it causes further oral damage and pain. Because many nerves can contain infected tissue, it is difficult for endodontists to ensure that all of the infection is removed during a standard root canal procedure. During an apicoectomy with New York City oral surgeon, Dr. Elliot Ostro however, the tip of the root of the tooth is fully removed and replaced with a dental filling.

An apicoectomy is often not considered until a second root canal, or endodontic retreatment is performed because it is much less invasive than an apicoectomy. Before this oral surgery, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and then oral surgeon, Dr. Ostro will make an incision in your gum to expose the infected root of your tooth. Inflamed tissue will be removed and replaced with a filling. Because of the precise nature of the surgery, Dr. Ostro maintains a high rate of success in endodontic surgery.

If you’re experiencing any signs of symptoms of a root canal infection, such as pain or swelling associated with a tooth that has had a root canal, we encourage you to contact Midtown Manhattan oral surgeon, Dr. Ostro immediately to schedule an appointment.

Bone Grafts Midtown Manhattan

Bone Grafts Midtown Manhattan

If you’re living with missing teeth, you’re causing damage to your jawbone by not visiting your dentist to receive a dental implant or another restorative dental procedure to replace the missing tooth. Over time, the jawbone underneath your missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed, leaving an unsuitable condition for the placement of dental implants. With bone grafting, we now have the ability to grow bone where needed, which not only allows your Central Park oral surgeon to place dental implants of the proper length and width, but gives us the opportunity to restore function and aesthetic appearance. Inadequate bone structure can be the result of previous extractions, gum disease or traumatic jaw injuries.

Major bone grafts repair defects of the jaw and require a hospital stay. The bone is obtained either from a tissue bank or your own bone from the jaw, hip or tibia. Bone grafts positively impact the health and stability of your teeth in two ways: jaw stabilization and preservation. Bone grafting stabilizes and helps restore the jaw foundation for restorative or implant surgery. Additionally, bone grafting can limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction, periodontal disease or other invasive processes. Once a bone graft is complete, you’ll be able to replace your missing teeth with a dental implant. Central Park Oral Surgeon, Dr. Ostro also performs surgical placement of dental implants, along with bone grafts.
