TMJ Treatment NYC
Sick and tired of hearing that popping, clicking sound? Of course you are. But it’s been going on so long, you might not even notice it as much. Of course, everyone else definitely does. These sounds are red flags that are byproducts of a jaw condition known as TMJ. If it’s also paired with persistent pain, it’s time to see a professional. You won’t find a better one than Elliot Ostro. Head over as soon as possible for first-rate TMJ treatment NYC.
What’s the source of that discomforting sound, anyway? We’re getting to that part. The development of TMJ occurs when the bones (or parts of them) interact with the joint are layered in cartilage, separated by a small shock-absorbing disk—responsible for maintaining smooth movement. Pain can kick into TMJ if any of the following happens: the joint is damaged by an impact or a blow, arthritis damages the joint’s cartilage, the disk is misaligned or erodes. Some people are more susceptible than others to developing this nagging condition. Some of the highest risk factors include: various forms of arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis), jaw injury, long-term cleaning or grinding of teeth, and connective tissue diseases which create problems within the temporomandibular joint. Maybe your eyes glazed over by the time the third multisyllabic term came into play. Totally understandable. For further clarification (or for treatment) don’t hesitate to contact a professional to finally be done with this discomfort. Head over to Elliot Ostro’s office. And take a giant step toward TMJ treatment NYC.
Sound good? Our patients certainly think so. Now the ball is unquestionably in your court. Step up to the plate and swing away—in other words, pick up the phone and call us. After speaking to Elliot Ostro’s staff, schedule an appointment to be well on your way to TMJ treatment NYC.

Oral Surgeon in New York NY
When your wisdom teeth are causing pain, swelling, and other unpleasant symptoms, you are left with little choice other than to have them removed. Rest assured that although you would be better off not needing this service from our oral surgeon in New York NY, there is no disadvantage to having your wisdom teeth extracted. They do not serve any purpose, either cosmetic or practical. At the office of Elliott Ostro, DMD, wisdom teeth are addressed and managed in the most gentle manner possible.
Most people will notice the eruption of wisdom teeth in their late teens or early 20s, if at all. Most of the time, unfortunately, they grow in crooked, or only partially, leading to complications. Misaligned eruption of them can damage the jaw bone and nerves, and may crowd surrounding teeth. If they become impacted, pain can be severe. Our oral surgeon in New York NY will act quickly. If you have an infection, it might be necessary for you to take prescribed antibiotics in advanced of our wisdom teeth extractions. Taking out the teeth in the presence of swollen tissue is an unnecessary risk in the majority of cases. You will be under local anesthesia to ensure comfort during the removal of the teeth. To get at them, an incision is made in the gum tissue above them, and any bone covering the teeth is also taken out. It is sometimes necessary to remove wisdom teeth in pieces, but don’t be concerned. Our oral surgeon in New York NY will probably give you stitches afterward, and you will be offered gauze to stem any bleeding. It is perfectly natural for there to be some bleeding after surgery. You will be given detailed instructions to follow over the first 24 hours. Full recovery may take several days.
While it’s no fun having your wisdom teeth extracted, it’s even less fun being in pain. So call us right away for help.

If you need to have some type of periodontal surgery, you will want to come to our practice, Elliott Ostro DMD. At our oral surgery New York NY practice you can receive excellent periodontal care from our expert oral surgeon, Dr. Elliott Ostro.
When a patient needs periodontal surgery, it means that they need to have some type of procedure to help fix damage that has occurred to the gum tissues and bone in the mouth. At our practice, patients can receive excellent periodontal surgery to help their gums return to excellent health. When tartar develops on the teeth, it encourages deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. When this occurs, tartar, plaque, bacteria and food debris all gather in these deep pockets, and the patient develops gum disease. Gum disease is an extremely serious condition as it cannot only cause teeth to loosen and fall out, but it can also cause infection to spread to other parts of the body. The only way periodontal disease can be corrected is with some type of periodontal surgery or treatment. In mild to moderate gum infections, a patient can receive a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment which will remove all infection and materials from the deep pockets between the teeth and gums. This should help the deep pockets to heal. However, if this treatment is not effective, periodontal surgery will be needed to help close up the gaps between the teeth and gums. If periodontal disease progresses to an advanced state, and bone losses occurs, you will most likely need to have periodontal surgery as one of your treatment options. Our expert oral surgeon is able to perform this type of surgery with state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. Our patients also remain perfectly comfortable during treatment due to our use of modern dental anesthesia. Our oral surgery New York NY has been effective in saving a great number of teeth, with poor prognosis, for many years.

Oral surgeon Manhattan
Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of the mouth and are the last teeth to erupt. Most wisdom teeth erupt in people between age 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth often need to be removed due to the problems they can create in the mouth with crowding or from the teeth becoming impacted. An impacted wisdom tooth can be very painful and need extraction by our oral surgeon Manhattan in order to avoid infection.
If the wisdom tooth becomes impacted and infected, it can be really painful and lead to crowding and damage of teeth close to it. Gums may swell, facial swelling may be an issue and extreme pain. If the wisdom tooth erupts too close to the existing tooth it can also be a problem. At the offices of Elliott Ostro, DMD, our oral surgeon Manhattan removes wisdom teeth as early as possible in order to save the need for future dental bills and issues with teeth. If there is not enough space in the dental arch, the tooth can become impacted. If the tooth is impacted a cyst can grow and permanently damage teeth around it as well as the bone and nerves.
If a wisdom tooth grows out and is not impacted, problems can still happen. The root of a wisdom tooth is extremely long and can make it harder to remove, making future complications a real concern. The best time to have our oral surgeon Manhattan remove wisdom teeth is when the patient is younger, because the root is not completely formed and thus is not as long, making it easier to get the tooth out. Also, the bone surrounding the tooth is softer. After surgery, slight pain may be experienced along with swelling and mild discomfort but the patient should not have any problems other than the normal.

Concerned that your jaw bone may disqualify you as a candidate for dental implants? There may still be hope. Call us at the office of Dr. Elliot Ostro DMD to discuss your particular circumstances with an NYC oral surgeon who can provide high-quality care in a friendly environment.
At the office of Elliot Ostro DMD, we pride ourselves on our ability to serve the New York City community that we know and love. Dr. Elliot Ostro is a certified oral surgeon who specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery as well as implant dentistry.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff understands that discretion, respect, and information are paramount to resolving these sensitive dental issues, and we’re happy to work together to help our patients on every step of their path towards recovery. We’re passionate about oral health, and our biggest hope is to pass that passion onto our patients; with high-quality treatment and informed preventative care, our goal is to help mitigate our patients’ dental issues and reduce the risk of dental emergencies in the future. If you’re interested in dental implant surgery but have been told that your jaw presents complications, ask Dr. Elliott Ostro DMD about bone grafting. Bone grafting allows a dentist to supplement a patient’s jaw bone mass so that a dental implant can be anchored safely into the bone. This graft not only replaces otherwise nonexistent bone, but prompts your jaw bone to regenerate itself, ultimately forming a bridge between your jaw bone and the graft material.
Wondering whether a bone grafting procedure is right for you? Call Elliott Ostro DMD, your local NYC oral surgeon, to learn more about bone grafting and the dental solutions available to you.

NYC bone graft
The term “bone grafting” can sound a little scary. However, at the dental office of Elliott Ostro DMD, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. We have a team of highly experienced oral surgeon who specialize in NYC bone graft, and will be sure to make your entire experience is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. And that all begins by educating our patients on this procedure.
In the instance of a missing tooth or many missing teeth, a few things can happen. Once a tooth is removed, the bone doesn’t have anything to support anymore. Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone and subsequently those patients would not be candidates for dental implants. Today, however, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. 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 esthetic appearance. NYC 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. Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different sites depending on the size of the defect. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites.
Although bone grafting is a surgical procedure which can sometimes be rather extensive, it plays a very important role in making new teeth possible. If you would like to learn more about our dental office or our oral surgeons, we highly recommend that you visit our practice’s main website to browse through some additional, detailed information that you might find useful. If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding NYC bone graft, or any of our other procedures, please do not hesitate to contact the staff here directly.
NYC dental implants
If you are thinking about getting dental implants, then you should visit our oral surgery practice, Elliott Ostro DMD. At our practice, patients are able to get NYC dental implants from our oral surgeon, Dr. Elliott Ostro, when they are suffering with tooth loss.
NYC dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or many teeth. Our dental practice is limited to oral and maxillofacial surgery, and our implant dentist is able to provide you with dental implants which are precisely placed to help ensure a successful dental implant treatment. Our dental implants are made of titanium and are surgically implanted into the bone. There is then a healing period during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone. Once this is completed, a porcelain crown needs to be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant, and the patient’s new tooth will be complete. If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for getting dental implants, it may be because your jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery procedure. At our oral surgery practice, you will be able to receive a bone graft. This procedure should be successful in making you a good candidate for dental implants as it will greatly increase the thickness of your jawbone. Our oral surgeon will be able to evaluate your individual situation and let you know if this is a good treatment option for you. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing and with periodic dental cleanings at your dentist’s office, your dental implant should be able to last you for a lifetime.
