Sometimes people research mechanics or hairdressers more thoroughly than their dental professional. Now, cars and hair are important, but shouldn’t your dental health be even more important? At Staten Island Dental Care, we love to answer questions about all facets of dentistry.
You teeth, after all, are living structures, and they need as much attention as fan belts and gray streaks. Inside each tooth is a chamber filled with dentin, a rigid mesh of connective tissue. At the core of each tooth is a nerve encased in a pulpy sheath. It’s essential that all of it remains healthy so that your teeth can do what they are supposed to do: bite and chew.
You may have questions about the types of services we offer. One of our specialties at Staten Island Dental Care are dental implants. These are titanium posts affixed to the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Implants can replace one missing tooth, or anchors a full set of dentures.
We also provide sedation dentistry. Millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety; the mere thought of going to the dentist is almost more than they can bear. We offer everything from laughing gas to IV sedation to relax our patients, and give them the care they need.
