Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are a slightly different type of implant, as the actual implant is narrower and uses a screw instead of a post. Originally introduced during the 1980s, the FDA accepted mini dental implants as a suitable long-term implant solution in 1999.

The diameter of mini dental implants can range from as little as 1.8 mm, up to 2.9 mm. The implant screws range from 10 mm to 18 mm in length, and the length of the screw determines the strength of the implant rather than its diameter.

The design is different, too, as mini dental implants are often fabricated as a one-piece unit that integrates the abutment that protrudes above the gumline, instead of as a conventional two-piece dental implant where the post and the abutment are separate. The procedure to insert mini dental implants is slightly different as they are placed directly through the gum tissue, eliminating the need for stitches.

At our dental implant practice in Brooklyn use mini dental implants in specific situations and where traditional-sized dental implants aren’t suitable. Typically, they are used to replace small lower incisors or other teeth where there isn’t room for a traditional larger width implant. Mini dental implants are exceptionally useful for securing loose dentures and especially when a person has significant jawbone deterioration and who is unsuitable or who do not wish to have bone graft surgery to build up their jawbone.

Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants are ideal for anyone missing a lower front tooth or another tooth where the space is too narrow to fit a conventional dental implant without negatively affecting the adjacent teeth and avoiding essential structures like nerves and blood vessels. If your mini dental implant is being used to restore a small front tooth, you will be provided with a temporary tooth and eventually an implant crown once the front tooth implant has fully healed

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill a gap caused by missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns placed on each side of the gap, with false teeth in between the anchor teeth. Dental bridges can be supported with dental implants or with natural teeth in the mouth.

Our expert dental team at LuxDen Dental Center in Brooklyn, NY can closely examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a viable candidate for dental bridges.

Types of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to restore the function of teeth, enhance a smile, fix a bite, prevent other teeth from moving (where there are missing teeth in between crowns), and/or to maintain the shape of one’s face, to name a few reasons.

A traditional bridge is the most common type and is made of porcelain that is fused to ceramic or even metal. A resin-bonded bridge uses wings on each side of the bridge that are bonded to the existing teeth directly.

How Dental Bridges Work in Brooklyn

When you visit our Brooklyn dental office, the abutment teeth are prepared by our general dentist by recontouring them and removing a bit of enamel. This is so that a crown can be successfully placed. Impressions are made and then used by a dental lab to create this bridge for you. While this permanent bridge is being made, a temporary one is worn to protect the teeth.

Veneers are a popular way to rejuvenate your smile. There are several different types to choose from, and it is essential to know a little bit about each option.

Periodontist in Brooklyn


In Brooklyn, there’s no reason to suffer from the often devastating consequences of untreated periodontal disease. Your periodontist is trained to not only help you prevent gum disease but to also treat it in its earliest stages. Periodontal disease can be treated successfully when you visit your family dental specialists in Brooklyn, NY Alex and Igor Khabensky DDS.

Your family dentist is also a periodontist — a dentist specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment of gum disease and high-quality periodontal services. Oral inflammation is another area that a periodontist treats, as well as pulling teeth and preparing your bones and gums for surgical procedures.

A periodontist trained in cosmetic dentistry keeps up with the latest dental technologies, such as laser gum treatment, a cutting-edge procedure that allows your general dentist to remove infected gum tissue painlessly. Plus, you’ll appreciate a periodontist who also received extensive training in implants.

Gum Disease Basics

Periodontal disease refers to bacterial infections in the supporting tissues around your teeth. While the most common form of disease occurs in your gums, it also can be present in:

  • Your jaw bone
  • The tissue covering your teeth roots
  • Periodontal ligaments

The earliest stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It refers only to a mild condition when bacteria inflame your gums. More advanced conditions treated by your periodontist in Brooklyn affect the tissues and structures supporting your teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is one of the most popular means of saving your natural teeth when they become infected. Root canal retreatment may be needed after many years, but overall the root canal cost is worth the investment. Root canal pain is minimal, compared to the pain of not having the procedure. Your dentist provides you with all the information you need about everything from how much does a root canal cost to root canal recovery and pain after root canal.

You may need root canal treatment if a nerve in one of your teeth becomes infected. Tooth extraction will be needed if you leave your root canal untreated. A dental bridge or a dental implant will be needed to replace the missing tooth. The best dentist Brooklyn works to keep your root canal cost as low as possible, while reducing any root canal pain you may feel.

Basically, root canal therapy involves removing the nerves and pulp from inside a diseased tooth so the infection doesn’t spread throughout your body. At the same time, your family dentists Alex and Igor Khabensky DDS of dentistry in Brooklyn eliminates root canal pain. The chamber in your tooth that holds the nerves and blood supply is called the root canal. You don’t need the nerve to maintain a healthy tooth; the nerve is there to warn you of problems like infection.

Root Canal Pain Causes and Symptoms

A tooth infection leads to throbbing pain. The root canal pain also may be associated with:

  • Inflammation in your head, neck or face
  • Loss of bone around the tooth’s root
  • Problems with proper drainage that allows the infection to run into your gums or on your skin

Root canal retreatment may be needed for a number of different reasons such as:

  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Hole in the tooth that lost a filling
  • Previous decay that affects the surrounding teeth
  • Trauma that leads to a broken tooth
  • Nerve pain that doesn’t respond to any other treatments

Crown Lengthening

Enjoy a broader, more symmetrical smile

Do you feel your teeth are a little shorter than you’d like or your smile appears “gummy”? Dr. Bokser can give you a wider, more symmetrical smile through a crown lengthening procedure. During this treatment, the doctor removes excess gum or bone tissue and reveals more of your natural tooth and creates a more even gum line. You may also need crown lengthening if you require a restorative dental procedure, such as fixing a broken tooth or getting a porcelain crown. If you have any questions about crown lengthening or if you’d like to schedule time to review your options, contact Astoria dental clinic today to schedule an appointment.

WHAT IS A CROWN LENGTHENING PROCEDURE?

Crown lengthening in Astoria is typically performed to improve the health of the gum tissue or prepare your mouth for certain restorative procedures – for example, if not enough of the tooth sticks out above the gum line to support a filling or crown. You may also consider crown lengthening if your smile can be described as “gummy,” where the teeth are covered with excess gum tissue.

Crown lengthening is a common surgical procedure performed by Dr. Bokser who will extend the height or size of the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. The doctor will typically use local anesthesia and then gradually reshape or remove the excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth. Once Dr. Bokser feels enough tooth has been exposed, the doctor will wash the area with sterile salt water and apply stitches to the gums. The entire procedure can usually be completed in less than one hour.

In most cases, after the surgery, you’ll experience a little swelling, which can be treated with ice and Ibuprofen (or other pain medicine) but generally there is relatively minimal healing time with little discomfort. The area will be completely healed and back to normal within 2-3 months. You will, however, notice the results immediately in a wider, more symmetrical smile.

Dr. Bokser can perform crown lengthening on a single tooth, for a more even gum line, or to several teeth to reveal a broader smile or prepare you for further dental work.
