    Diagnosing Gum Diseases for Oral Hygiene

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Do you know how to recognize the signs of gum disease?

    In this video, you’ll learn about the signs and symptoms of a periodontal condition. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and usually presents with mild bleeding when brushing and flossing. Untreated gingivitis can lead to early periodontitis, in which the bacterium eats away the bone and surrounding tissues.

    While gingivitis can be reversed with proper oral hygiene, only a NYC dentist can treat moderate periodontal disease. Contact our emergency dentists with Central Park West Dentistry to schedule a consultation.

    Are You Afraid of the Dentist?

    Last updated 6 years ago

    As the medical professionals in this video make clear, early intervention is less expensive, less painful, and less invasive than any procedures they’ll have to perform later on.  After all, finding a cavity during a regularly-scheduled cleaning is a minor fix.  If you wait too long to go to the dentist, however, then you may have major dental problems to deal with later on.

    If you’re in New York City and you’ve been putting off going to the dentist, then you need to make an appointment with Central Park West Dentistry.  The doctors at Central Park West Dentistry are accomplished cosmetic, implant, and emergency dentists.  We want to help you have a cleaner and brighter smile. For more information, visit our website or call (866) 868-9546 today.

    Crown Materials for Dental Implants

    Last updated 6 years ago

    With so many advances in dental technology, it’s no wonder that porcelain crowns and dental implants are becoming more and more popular.

    In this video from expertvillage.com, watch an overview on the materials used for crown and implant construction. The most common substructures for dental crowns include hard plastic, white gold, or yellow gold. Be sure to stay away from implants that use other metals in the substructure, as these can easily corrode and cause irritation to the bones and soft tissues in your mouth. Learn why porcelain coatings are so strong against chips and fractures in this full clip. 

    If you’re looking for an implant dentist in your area, then look no further than Central Park West Dentistry. Our cosmetic dentists are devoted to providing the best dental implants and Invisalign braces in NYC. 

    Wishing the lovely Dr. Martin a wonderful birthday :)
