While most people seek attention for crooked teeth because they are unhappy with their appearance, most people do not realize that having crooked teeth and not seeking treatment increases the possibility of developing gum disease.

Addressing crooked teeth may prevent various dental and medical concerns such as:

  • abnormal and premature tooth wear;
  • jaw problems, headaches, shoulder and neck pain;
  • increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease;
  • poor self-esteem due to appearance.

Even the loss of one tooth due to decay or gum disease can cause instability in the rest of the teeth. Early prevention of decay and replacing missing teeth is important for the health of your other teeth.

At Yonkers Avenue Dental, we have an increased range of therapeutic options available that can straighten your teeth and give you many reasons to smile.

Invisalign invisible braces in Yonkers will give you strong, healthy and straight teeth without the need for unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces.

You can enjoy all the benefits of braces without having to sacrifice your smile or compromise on what you like to eat. They are removable, replaceable, comfortable and custom made to fit your teeth. Adults love Invisalign as they can improve a crowded or crooked smile without anyone noticing that they’re wearing braces. If you are looking for Invisalign treatment in Yonkers, contact Yonkers Avenue Dental.

Gum disease or Periodontal Disease is a major cause of tooth loss, and dental care in Yonkers for treatment of this disease is offered at our office . The early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis. The symptoms of Gingivitis are red, swollen and bleeding gums. These symptoms appear when routine brushing and flossing are not being completed each day or there is an area that is misaligned and hard to keep clean. With proper care gingivitis is reversible.

If gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance and become periodontal (gum) disease. When bacteria accumulate around the gum line and just below the gum line they can create pockets beneath the gums. The plaque hardens and becomes tartar build up. It is a hardened form of plaque. In the pocket below the gum, the plaque and tartar cycle continuously inflame the gums causing the swelling and bleeding. What has developed as a result of this cycle is gum disease which we then called Periodontitis. Gum disease or Periodontitis is not reversible. With help from your dentist Periodontitis can be arrested in the stage that it is in. Some of the symptoms of Periodontitis are:

  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Red or purplish color of the gums
  • Bad breath
  • Bad taste in your mouth
  • Teeth that are loose
  • Receding gums/ exposed roots
  • Evidence of pus around the gum line or around the teeth.

Yonkers Avenue Dental can help you successfully treat gum disease. At your comprehensive examination appointment, Dr. Rajani will develop a personalized periodontal treatment plan that will focus on treating the individual needs you have. Some of the treatment therapies may include:

  • Deep scaling (cleaning)
  • Recare appointments at 3 or 4 month intervals
  • Hygiene instructions so that you may care for the condition properly at home
  • Prescription for antibiotic medication or rinses
  • Gum surgery
  • Orthodontics to properly align teeth, to prevent food and plaque accumulating again.

According to the American Heart Association there is a direct link between gum disease and heart disease. There are also systemic links between gum disease and premature labor and diabetes. Yonkers Avenue Dental can help you with either gingivitis or periodontitis. Waiting to treat this condition encourages further destruction of the gums.  Call us today for an appointment.

Discomfort and a loss of self-confidence can occur as a result of having a broken tooth. When left untreated, broken teeth can cause a lot of pain, become infected and may need to be removed.

What are some reasons your teeth can break?

  • Trauma
  • Large cavity
  • Large, old fillings
  • Biting very hard foods
  • Using our teeth to open bags, cans, etc
  • Not putting a crown on a tooth after root canal treatment

Yonkers Avenue Dental can repair a broken tooth without needing to lose the affected tooth. We offer a variety of solutions that are customized to meet your individual needs such as:

  • Fillings
  • Root Canals
  • Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Implants (if the tooth needs to be removed)

Don’t let a broken tooth get you worried. Contact us at Yonkers Avenue Dental as soon as possible so that we can evaluate the tooth and recommend the best treatment to have you smiling again!

Your smile is one of the first things people notice. A missing tooth will affect your self-confidence when speaking with others. It may draw others attention away from your conversation as they will focus on the spaces in your smile. At work or in your social life this is a potential problem. There is a solution:  At Yonkers Avenue Dental, during your comprehensive examination visit, Dr. Rajani will discuss all available treatment options that suit your particular needs.

One missing tooth can be the cause of further dental problems. The remaining adjacent and opposing teeth begin to shift position, which compromises those teeth. The teeth begin to move out of alignment, or proper biting position, and this leads to plaque and food buildup, gum disease, cavities and further tooth loss. In addition, when teeth are out of position they usually requires braces or Invisalign to correct that problem.

Some of the ways we replace missing teeth are:

  • Implants
  • Bridges
  • Partial Dentures 

Implants in Yonkers are indeed the single best treatment option for tooth replacement if you are a candidate. At your comprehensive examination, Dr. Rajani will evaluate your candidacy, at no cost to you, in addition to checking for cavities and gum disease. This is a great time to discuss your concerns with him, and he is happy to answer them all.

Bridges are also an adequate way to close spaces in your dentition. For those who are not candidates for implants, bridges are a favorable way to close spaces because they are permanently cemented into your mouth. They do not require you to remove them each night and they function just as natural teeth. Allow us to review the pros and cons with you at your comprehensive examination visit.

Dentures are another way to close spaces in your dentition. Insurance companies will usually cover substantial costs for this treatment option. This option will also, in a very basic way, prevent your natural teeth from shifting. Keep in mind, the jaw bone will flatten out over time where the missing tooth/teeth are so this type of treatment is really a temporary option.
