How can I replace missing teeth?
We can complete your smile and restore your health by replacing missing teeth in a number of ways. You can choose the replacement method that suits your needs best, whether you’ve lost one tooth, several teeth, or a full arch of teeth. We offer a variety of modern tooth loss solutions, including dental crowns and bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
How can I overcome my dental anxiety?
Dr. Lesinski and our team go above and beyond to ensure your comfort. That includes maintaining a warm, friendly atmosphere that feels like home, providing amenities like hot towels and soft blankets, and offering various levels of dental sedation to ease your anxiety and help you relax during treatment.
What is periodontal disease?
The advanced stage of gum disease is known as periodontal disease, where bacteria in your mouth forms pockets of infection that deteriorate your gum tissues. Without intervention, the infection causes your gums to become swollen, tender, and even bleed. To reverse gum disease, it’s best to catch it as early as possible. We provide nonsurgical gum disease treatment called scaling and root planing, as well as a take-home therapy called Perio Protect®, to get your oral health back on track.
What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?
Loud, persistent snoring is the most common sign of sleep apnea, but the symptoms go well beyond that. Along with sleep disturbances throughout the night where your airway becomes blocked and breathing stops, you’ll likely notice daily fatigue, irritability, concentration and memory problems, and a host of other debilitating symptoms. We offer solutions for sleep apnea that allow you to breathe easily and get the satisfying rest you need for better health and a better quality of life.
Are metal braces the only option for straightening my teeth?
Metal braces are still widely popular and effective, but thanks to innovations in orthodontics, you have alternative options to straighten crooked teeth that are faster and less noticeable.
Adults love Invisalign and ClearCorrect, two clear aligner therapies we offer in Buffalo, NY, because they can move your teeth into the right position in about a year and don’t force you to sacrifice your appearance during treatment.
