Oral surgery is a type of medical procedure that involves the manipulation of teeth, gums, jaws, and other oral structures. This includes extractions, implants, gum grafts, and jaw surgeries. It is usually performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist. Common types of dental surgery include orthodontic work and teeth whitening.Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry in the past 25 years.
They are used to replace the root or roots of a tooth and are made from titanium and titanium alloy because they are lightweight and biocompatible. Implants are used to replace teeth due to decay, disease, oral cancer, or other causes such as smoking or alcoholism. Dental surgery covers a wide range of procedures that involve artificial modification of the dentition. This includes bone grafting, which is performed when a person does not have enough jaw tissue or when a patient wants implants but lacks the bone tissue needed to hold the prosthesis in place. It also includes pericision, which is used to save a tooth from relapse due to dental appliances, retainers, or other orthodontic treatments. Andrei Mark has more than 30 years of experience in dental surgery in New York City as a board certified oral surgeon.
He has successfully completed more than 5,000 implants using the latest advances in implant technology to provide his patients with prostheses that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Patients can choose between temporary or removable false teeth that can be placed in a glass of water when sleeping or permanent false teeth that must be stuck in the mouth such as dental bridges. Before deciding whether or not they are candidates for dental surgery, dentists refer their patients to an oral surgeon. This type of surgery can be performed by any of different types of dental specialists including endodontists, periodontists, and prosthodontists. The simplest form of this process is tooth extraction which is one of the most common dentist services. Andrei Mark offers solutions to a wide range of problems related to the mouth, teeth and facial regions through dental surgery and other procedures.
He can surgically place implants on opposite sides of a row of gaps between teeth instead of using adjacent teeth as posts or supports for a dental bridge. After the posts are inserted into the dental socket and allowed to heal, metal struts are attached to the gum surface allowing dentures or bridges to be placed over the fixed appliances.
