If you have long wanted a beautifully straightened smile, why wait any longer? All you need to do is to visit us at Tiba Dental where our expert dentist and orthodontist, Dr. Abdelhamed Tamara, can provide you with an orthodontic evaluation for clear braces Sunset Park, including Invisalign invisible braces.

At our dental practice, our dentist will determine what type of orthodontic treatment is needed to give you the smile you have long wanted. Invisalign clear braces Sunset Park is a very popular option with our patients because it uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets on your teeth. Other patients enjoy getting tooth-colored ceramic braces which also are much less intrusive to your smile. Still, other patients of ours enjoy having their teeth straightened with traditional metal braces. Today’s metal braces have much smaller and smoother brackets than the metal braces of years ago. During an orthodontic evaluation, our dentist will assess your individual bite problem and let you know which type of orthodontic treatment will work best for you. If it is found that you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign invisible braces, this may well be the way you want to go. Treatment with Invisalign is extremely popular because the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. Additionally, you can eat just about anything you want during this treatment since the aligners are removed during meals. Each person will receive their own, individualized set of clear plastic aligners which are created with the assistance of CAD/CAM computer technology. A patient’s series of aligners can have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it, depending on the bite problem that is being corrected. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner. Once the last aligner in the series is worn, you will have your beautiful new smile.

Here at Tiba Dental, we pride ourselves on offering dental care for all ages. The needs of children differ from those of adults in some ways, and this includes overcoming their normal resistance to any doctor’s office. Our family dentistry in Brooklyn NY is the only practice you need for yourself and for your children.

One thing is the same, no matter how young or old our patient is: a twice-yearly visit for a complete oral examination, x-rays, and a teeth cleaning is one of the keys to maintaining healthy teeth that are free of decay, and long with strong, vibrant gums. Our family dentist will do a physical and visual inspection of the teeth and gums, fillings, and other restorations, as well as doing a periodontal evaluation. Yours or your child’s occlusion (bite) will also be checked. X-rays are essential for detecting cavities, in addition to other potential concerns such as cysts. And because our family dentistry in Brooklyn NY features digital x-rays, you will have the advantage of clearer images. Digital x-rays also expose you to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays do. Teeth cleanings eliminate any remaining plaque and tartar, setting you or your child back on the right rack to optimal oral wellness. Our office is also set up to be fun, welcoming, and free of anxiety. We want your child to develop the positive attitudes about dental care that will serve him or her well into adulthood. Our family dentistry in Brooklyn NY places fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and even dental implants (the state-of-the-art in full tooth restoration). We do teeth whitening right here or provide you with a simple take-home version. And orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, is available for children and adults. Should a root canal or extraction be required, you can depend on it being done expertly and with very little or even no pain as part of the process.

Sunset Park Braces

Sunset Park braces

Invisalign is nothing short of a revolution in orthodontic treatment. Instead of having to deal with the potential discomfort, food restrictions, and cosmetic disadvantages of metal braces, we at Tiba Dental are pleased to offer you a much simpler, easy, and very effective method.

For many years, traditional Sunset Park braces were made out of metal and were characterized by criss-crossing wires and heavy brackets. Once placed, they were on for the long term, only taken out when your treatment was completed. When you choose Invisalign, though, you get some outstanding benefits from our Sunset Park braces. First, they are made right here at our office, not in a dental lab. There are no messy impressions taken, either. Digital photos are all that is needed. Our 3-D computer software oversees the crafting of precisely-made aligners of clear plastic. No one will know you’re wearing them. They are virtually invisible. And unlike metal, they won’t be responsible for any mouth soreness or irritation. Another big plus is that the aligners are removable. You will only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise, they remain in 24/7, even while you sleep, working to move your teeth into a more ideal alignment. Because you take them out to eat, though, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods, even sticky and crunchy ones with our Sunset Park braces. Your oral hygiene maintenance will also be more efficient, with nothing in the way of your toothbrush and dental floss. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, and is then discarded in favor of the next one. You will come in about every six weeks for a progress checkup. All in all, you will wear as few as 12 and as many as 48 aligners. The exact number, of course, depends on your individual circumstances.

A patient’s individualized set of aligners is created using CAD/CAM computer technology.

Gum Treatments in Bay Ridge

Gum treatments in Bay Ridge

Gum treatments in Bay Ridge

If you want to have healthy teeth it is important that you also take great care of your gums. This is because if gums become unhealthy, your teeth can begin to loosen and fallout. Gum disease will also spread to other parts of your mouth and eventually to other parts of your body. Gum disease will never go away by itself if left untreated. When you are in need of excellent gum disease treatment including periodontal therapy, you will want to get your gum treatments in Bay Ridge at our dental practice, Tiba Dental.

At our dental practice our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Abdelhamed Tamara. Dr. Tamara has been providing expert dental care to patients in our Bay Ridge area for more than 10 years. A patient can be diagnosed with gum disease during a regular dental exam or during a dental cleaning. If you are diagnosed with gum disease it is very important that you have gum treatments in Bay Ridge to get your gums back on the road to good health. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming few months. This is generally all that is needed to get rid of gingivitis and once again have healthy gums.

If it is determined that you have gum disease, and deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, you will likely need a scaling and root planing treatment. When you develop deep pockets, plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris will all gather in these deep pockets and cause infection. This will cause the jawbone to deteriorate which will ultimately lead to tooth loss. A scaling and root planing treatment is generally effective in treating mild to moderate gum disease. If a lot of bone loss has already occurred it may be necessary to have gum surgery. A scaling and root planing treatment is done while the patient has a local anesthetic applied to the gums. The patient will remain in total comfort during this procedure. This procedure will remove all the infection and debris from the deep pockets, allowing them to become smaller and eventually heal. Coming in to our dental practice for regular teeth cleanings and dental exams will dramatically improve your chances of not needing gum treatments in Bay Ridge. For an appointment to come in to see our expert dentist contact us today.

Tooth Extractions in Bay Ridge

Bay Ridge Oral Surgeon

At Tiba Dental, our practice is devoted to keeping our patients’ teeth and gums healthy. We offer outstanding general, cosmetic, pediatric, endodontic and periodontal dental care. We are dedicated to preserving the health of your teeth and gums. However, as dental professionals we do recognize that sometimes, there is the need for tooth extractions in Bay Ridge.

Tooth Extractions in Bay Ridge

Tooth Extractions in Bay Ridge

Dr. Abdelhamed Tamara will do whatever can be done to preserve the original tooth, yet there are times when a patient will need to have a tooth or teeth removed. Should this be the case, Dr. Tamara is highly-trained in tooth extractions in Bay Ridge, and will carry out this procedure in a safe and pain-free way. Dr. Tamara makes sure that tooth extraction is pain free for his patients, and uses local anesthesia during this procedure. There are many different reasons why a tooth or teeth may need to be pulled. Sometimes a tooth is simply too badly damaged by decay to be repaired, and cannot be saved by root canal therapy. Other times, teeth are badly damaged by trauma to the tooth. Other situations that create a need for tooth extraction are: the mouth is too crowded and teeth need to be pulled to prepare for orthodontic work; there is a severe infection that cannot be corrected by root canal therapy or antibiotics; the patient has a compromised immune system; or, the gums are too badly damaged by gum disease to support the tooth any longer.

Wisdom teeth also may need to be extracted if they are impacted, or coming into a mouth that is already too crowded. If a tooth is impacted, Dr. Tamara will need to cut away gum and bone tissue that covers the tooth, and then use forceps to remove it. You will not feel any pain during this procedure, as Dr. Tamara will provide a local anesthetic to block any pain. When a tooth is removed that can be seen by others, or that played an important role in chewing, the patient may want to have the missing tooth replaced. This can be done through many means; one way is to get a dental implant. There are also other alternatives including getting fixed or removable bridges. Every case must be analyzed on an individual basis, in order to make sure that optimal treatment is provided; and that analysis is exactly what Dr. Tamara does. So if you need to have tooth extractions in Bay Ridge, or need to replace a missing tooth, call Tiba dental today to make an appointment with Dr. Tamara.

Bay Ridge Endodontist

Root canal therapy in Bay Ridge NY

Bay Ridge Endodontist

Bay Ridge Endodontist

Here at Tiba Dental, one of the most common services that our Bay Ridge endodontist provides for our patients is root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is typically used if you have a tooth with an infected pulp. Each of your teeth has a collection of soft tissue at its center called the pulp. If a tooth is severely decayed and damaged, the pulp can then easily be exposed to any bacteria or other harmful substances within your mouth at any given time. As a result, the tooth can be come painfully infected. Some symptoms of an infected pulp include, as previously mentioned, moderate to severe toothache, increased pain when biting down or chewing, increased tooth sensitivity, and in some cases, a discoloration or darkening of the tooth. If you are experiencing any or all of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Bay Ridge endodontist as soon as possible so that we can give you the treatment you need. First, we will discuss your symptoms with you, and examine the current state of your teeth in order to fully understand the situation at hand. The likely treatment in this situation would be root canal therapy. During root canal therapy, our Bay Ridge endodontist will remove the infected pulp, and then carefully clean out the tooth so that there are no lingering bacteria in the area. Then, the tooth will be sealed up in order to prevent any more infections in the future. When you choose Tiba Dental, you can rest assured that you will receive only the highest level of care.

If you are interested in learning more about how our Bay Ridge endodontist can be of service to you, we highly recommend that you visit the main Tiba Dental website, where you can read on in further detail about our services, our office, our staff, and basic dental health topics that you might find useful. If you have any specific questions or concerns to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact the staff here directly. We are always happy to help you. We look forward to working with you soon here at TIba Dental.

Why you need to brush before going to bed!

The question: Just how gross is it really if I forget to brush my teeth before bed every once in a while?

The answer: Bad news: It’s pretty gross. You probably already know that the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends brushing those pearly whites twice a day. You also probably know that brushing your teeth is one of the easiest ways to avoid scaring off your date.

But brushing is important for reasons beyond fresh breath. Skip a session, and you’re on your way to encouraging the growth of bacterial buildup in the form of plaque, which can lead to cavities and gum disease.
