Painful gum disease

Gum disease can be terrible. A gradual weakening of our gums can lead to tooth loss; forcing us to alter our diet and meaning that we lose our award winning smile. It is therefore vitally important that treatment for gum disease is sought as soon as it is identified. Treatments for gum disease at OcciDental of Brooklyn can range from medication to surgical. The more advanced the condition, the more likely that surgical treatments will be necessary. 

These surgical treatments  that OcciDental of Brooklyn offers are designed to repair the damaged and unhealthy tissue around your teeth so as to make them more stable and prevent tooth loss. This can include regenerative procedures, where the bacteria causing the damage is removed, with the remaining tissue then repairing the damage, or even a gum graft surgical treatment, where gum tissue from your palate is placed over the roots of your teeth that have become exposed due to the weakened gums. OcciDental  of Brooklyn will ensure that you receive the best conservative gum treatment so that you do not suffer as a result of your damaged gums.

Laser Dentistry by OcciDental of Brooklyn

As technology improves, so advances in dental procedure follow. Many dental practices like Occi Dental have started to use laser dental treatments rather than traditional methods. The reason for this is very straightforward; laser dental treatments do the same job, just better! With laser dental treatments, wounds will heal much faster and often without the need to resort to stitches. Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized as the beam is very precise, and the laser sterilizes the area that is being worked on, which means that the chance of infection is much lower. 

The laser dental treatments that are offered by OcciDental are a mixture of hard and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue procedures include preparation for adding a dental filling or sealing the tubules in the teeth that result in heightened sensitivity. Soft tissue procedures focus on the gum; reshaping or adding muscle. By using lasers, OcciDental ensures that these treatments are performed very efficiently with minimal risk of side effects.

Are you afraid of a dentist? Not anymore! Welcome to our gentle dental practice!

Dental phobia
CBT is of a range of techniques than can be used to make the experience comfortable for patients who feel anxious about having dental treatment, & the results of this study look promising for those who experience extreme dental phobia.
As agreed upon by many Brooklyn dentists including our Bensonhurst Brooklyn Occi Dental of Brooklyn specialists, dental phobia is a serious issue because it deters some people from ever going to the dentist, except when they are in extreme pain. At this stage, they may need more invasive treatment than might be the case in the event that they went to the dentist regularly. Sadly, this cycle of anxiety, non-attendance & pain is often repeated in the children of those with dental phobia, perpetuating the issue & feeding another generation of oral health issues.
All our OcciDental of Brooklyn dentists are highly-skilled, caring health professionals in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn who are trained to put patients at ease. Our Brooklyn dentists have undertaken additional training in techniques, such as acupuncture, & naturally, CBT.
