BRIUS: What Is That And How Does It Works?

Let’s continue the topic of a healthy smile.

In our previous BLOG ARTICLE, we were discussing the invisible method of bite treatment – Invisalign.

But what else Tribeca Dental Studio can suggest you to make your smile perfect?

Tribeca Dental Studio is the 1st in Manhattan to offer Brius® a new braces product that goes behind the wearer’s teeth.

BRIUS is a revolutionary method that moves teeth independently and can be used instead of braces or aligners. This method considerably shortens treatment time!

BRIUS Braces placed behind the teeth so they cannot be seen are more comfortable than any other behind-the-teeth braces.

There are few reasons to choose BRIUS instead of more traditional brace systems.

These appliances STAY BONDED TO YOUR TEETH and never stop working to improve your smile, unlike plastic clear aligners which need to be removed when eating or drinking.

THEY ARE AUTONOMOUS and custom- made to deliver your dream smile designed by our orthodontist.

They are behind the teeth so THEY ARE INVISIBLE and cannot be seen! No one will be able to tell that you are getting your teeth aligned, as opposed to the unsightly attachments typically used with aligners.

This method moves all the teeth simultaneously and independent of each other, which is much more EFFICIENT than traditional braces or clear aligners.

The BRIUS® applies a very LIGHT FORCE to the teeth, meaning that treatment is painless!

No wires connect the teeth with this technique, unlike traditional braces, which makes it EASY TO CLEAN.

In most cases, only one BRIUS® will be needed for the entire treatment. This means FEWER VISITS – there is no need for adjustments!

How does it work and what is the treatment process?

BRIUS has two main components: a rigid bar and flexible arms. The arms are chosen via a complex Finite Element Analysis (FEA), to apply the ideal force/torque to each tooth.

Interbracket distance no longer an issue.

One BRIUS® completes mild to moderate cases. It uses a new non-sliding orthodontic technique that moves each tooth independently. Flexible NiTi arms connect each tooth to a rigid bar that stabilizes the appliance on the hard palate or lingual vestibule. The thickness and design of each individual arm are customized to produce the optimal force and moment needed for that particular tooth. The appliances can be further customized by incorporating TADs or Nance.

“Invisalign” as a Perfect Bite Treatment

Correct bite is the basis for an attractive smile. Our patients usually come to Tribeca Dental Studio with a request for teeth straightening, and not for bite correction.

However, it causes many problems connected to a violation of appearance, speech, sleep and even digestion.

Fortunately nowadays our doctors can help you solve this issue easily!

Traditional braces often cause psychological discomfort and require special attention to oral hygiene. Wearing them assume diet changes and usually go hand by hand with other inconveniences that affect the usual way of life.

Brace – systems are:

– visible to others;

– non-removable;

– may injure the oral mucosa;

– maintaining oral hygiene is difficult during treatment.

Invisalign vs Braces: a better way to help your bite be smooth

Transparent aligners are a modern alternative to braces systems and a unique technique for correcting uneven teeth.

Transparent aligners use modern 3D technologies, that makes it real to make them invisible to others.

Aligners are made of medical plastic – a hypoallergenic biopolymer, which adheres very tightly to the teeth and is practically invisible from the outside. It creates a feeling of a perfectly smooth surface. 

Unlike braces, the patient has no doubts about his appearance during the entire period of treatment with aligners.

Benefits of the Invisalign system

Aligners are visually invisible – nobody will notice them when talking to you and even on photographs.

They solve clinical cases of any complexity.

Invisalign aligners are suitable for both adults and teenagers.

They are comfortable to wear and easy to take off – for example, during an important event, eating or brushing your teeth.

The material from which the aligners are made doesn’t irritate the oral mucosa.

They don’t cause diction violation.

Ease of care: aligners need to be cleaned 2 times a day with a toothbrush and paste in warm water.

The discomfort lasts a maximum of 1-2 days, you are getting used to them quickly.

How does Invisalign work?

First, a complete diagnosis of the condition of the teeth is carried out:

– teleradiography;

– panoramic;

 – X-ray and photo diagnostics to create a dental impression. 

The research results are sent for further processing to Invisalign (USA), where a virtual plan of the ClinCheck treatment process is created on their basis. 

After agreement with the patient in the laboratory done, the company makes individual transparent Invisalign aligners , which will need to be changed every 2 weeks.

During this time, aligners move the teeth to the correct position.

Invisalign aligners are delivered to Tribeca Dental Studio.

Your dentist will show you how to put it on in the right position and how to take care of the hygiene correctly.

Throughout the entire period of wearing the aligners, you must periodically visit an orthodontist to monitor intermediate results.  But this can be done much less often than in the case of braces.

Hardly anyone will see transparent Invisalign aligners.

But everyone will notice your dazzling smile!

Kids’ Sleep Disorder Breathing

Have you ever noticed your child to have difficulties at school because of decreased attention, or daytime sleepiness? Maybe he or she gets worried and aggressive very quickly and frequently and you must deal with tantrums day by day? Perhaps your child is calm, but you see there are some speech problems, or sometimes in the morning you find the kid’s bed wet?

These behavioral signs can be not very noticeable, but you hear your kid snoring and breathing mouth while sleeps, grinding the teeth? The child can have misaligned teeth, receded chin, or sometimes you notice he or she having under eye circles and forward head posture, or you feel kid’s tonsils swollen?

These all can lead to frequent throat aches, acid reflux and even asthma, and are all the symptoms of SLEEP DISORDER BREATHING.

Traditionally therapists suggest us to give our kids psychotropic drugs and sleep aids, asthma, allergy and acid flux medication. They give us tooth extraction and put our kids braces. They suggest us to use headgear or CPAP machine. Counselling and all these therapies can lead to surgery.

But they all just fix the symptoms and does not fix the reason why all these problems appear. They produce a temporary relief from symptoms that tend to recur, causing a lifetime of distress.

The consequences of untreated sleep disorder breathing are very harmful and lead to irreversible processes in growing. How we look is determined by an intricate combination of genes and environment. If your environment does not allow for a full expression of our genetic potential, the result will be an incomplete development of our features and can result in poor health. In nature, form follows function.

Mouth breathing prevents access to nitric oxide from the nasal sinuses and weakens throat muscles. The tethered tongue will further weaken muscles of the airway leading not only to a change in facial form and posture, but also will alter hormonal metabolism and progress to Obstructive Sleep Apnoea if untreated. Sleep apnoea greatly increases the risk of chronic inflammatory diseases and even can be life threatening.

Underdeveloped upper airway is the primary cause of sleep disorder breathing in more than 80% of children today.

Consequences of the closed airway are:

  • 3-x risk of stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes Type II
  • Dementia
  • Congestive heart failure
  • GERD
  • Depression
  • Chronic inflammation

There are few natural healthy solutions you can provide to your kids instead of traditional therapies that are suggested.

The easiest thing a parent can do is observe their child and note any of the symptoms mentioned here. Early intervention means easier treatment and more time for your child to spend living a healthy happy life.

No matter when you start noticing these issues, there is a solution based on engaging the power of your child’s natural growth and development potential.

Contact us (212) 561-5303 for booking an appointment, and our professional doctors will be happy to work with you to determine which orthodontic solution best fits your personal needs and budget.

Dental Implant Services In Tribeca, NYC

Dental implants could be a great way to restore your self-confidence and your smile. Getting dental implants in Lower Manhattan is easier than you think. Here is some important information that you should know.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, metal structures that serve as an alternative for missing teeth. They are screw-shaped, titanium implants that are surgically inserted into the jawbone where they act as anchors to support natural-looking artificial crowns. A dental implants procedure usually involves an endosteal implant, which is placed directly into the healthy jawbone.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Implants?

The dental implants procedure is a great option for people with missing teeth who have enough healthy jawbone to support the implants. If you’re interested in dental implants, schedule a consultation by one of our experienced dentists to determine your eligibility as a dental implant candidate. We will explore your financial options such as dental implants insurance and alternatives to reduce  your dental implants cost.

Dental Implant  5 Step Procedure 

  1. First the surgical site and jawbone are prepared.
  2. Then the metal implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone. It is covered with gum tissue and left to heal and integrate with the bone. Healing and bonding take a few months. 
  3. After the site has healed, the site is reopened and a small connecting post called an abutment is attached to the implant. 
  4. In the last step, a crown that matches your natural teeth color is placed onto the abutment. 
  5. When everything is placed, your dental implants are ready to function as your natural teeth. 

Care for Dental Implants 

 When you do get your dental implants done, it is extremely important that you take good care of them after your surgery. And it’s very easy to! 

 Here are some tips for you: 

  • You may get some mild pain and soreness after the surgery, this nothing to worry about you can use over the counter pain relievers. 
  • Once the dental implants are nice and healed you should brush, floss  and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash as you would for your natural teeth. 
  • You should plan regular dental cleanings at Tribeca Dental Studio every 6 months.

Benefits of Dental Implants

When dental implants replace your missing natural teeth, the following dental implants benefits are yours for life.

  • A stunning, natural-looking smile
  • Gain back your confidence
  • Easier chewing
  • Protection of teeth adjacent to dental implants

How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?

Your dental implants, like your natural teeth, need proper care. How long dental implants last depends on how well you take care of them. If you have good dental hygiene and see your dentist regularly, your dental implants can last a few decades and even for  the rest of your life. 

Contact our dental studio today to start exploring your dental implant options.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The potential cost of dental implants relies on few factors: 

  1. Materials used to make the post and crown
  2. The need for bone grafts or other preparations
  3. The type of implant used. 

Dental implants’ cost is also affected by dental implants insurance coverage and personal financing options.

Please Note: The gaps created by 1 or more missing teeth don’t just affect your smile, they also increase your likelihood of developing serious oral health problems like gum disease, bite misalignment, jawbone loss, and tooth decay.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers, and many others.

New young parents often ask us “When should my child first see a dentist?” It’s never too early to start focusing on your child’s oral health! The American Association of Pediatric Dentists recommends that parents should see a  dentist for their child by their first tooth or first birthday. As the child starts teething, the dentist will be able to monitor their progress and implement preventative measures for any concerns with your baby’s teeth.

Did you know that cavities or tooth decay are one of the most common health problems affecting children in the United States?  

At Tribeca Dental Studio, we know good habits start early. Developing good habits at an early age helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Our Pediatric Dentists work with children and their parents to build healthy habits. 

Here are some dental tips for the little ones in your family: 

  1. Offer your children water instead of sugary drinks such as soda or sweetened juices or soft drinks. Some soft drinks contain artificial sweeteners instead of added sugar. The acidity of these drinks, either sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners, can contribute to tooth erosion and decay. For good oral health encourage children to drink plain water throughout the day.
  2. Don’t put a baby to bed with a bottle.  By doing this your baby’s teeth can decay. When babies are put to bed with bottles, sugary liquids pool around the teeth while they sleep. Bacteria in their mouths use the sugars as food and produce acids that attack the teeth. In the most serious cases, the front teeth can rot completely and need to be removed. 
  3. As the first birthday approaches, encourage your child to drink from a cup. The child gets liquid by sucking on the cup, much like a baby bottle. Also, toddlers can fall while drinking from a cup which can create a potential injury to the mouth. 
  4. If your kids chew gum, buy only sugarless gum – chewing sugarless gum after eating can increase saliva flow and help wash out food and decay-producing acid.
  5.  Teach your children to floss their teeth every day. And do not forget to yourself! 
  6. Help your kids develop good brushing techniques by brushing for them first, then allowing them to brush after you.
  7.  You should time their brushing to two minutes. There are great interacting apps that help keep the time and make teeth brushing fun for the kids. 
  8. Make sure your child wears a mouthguard when playing any kind of sports. They help to limit the risk of mouth-related injuries to your child’s lips, tongue and soft tissues of the mouth.  Also, they help kids to avoid chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to a tooth or even tooth loss. 
  9. If kids crave a snack, offer them nutritious ones. Keep plenty of fruit, vegetables, and healthy beverages on hand so kids avoid unhealthy snacks like soda, chips, and cookies.
  10. And, of course, schedule regular dental visits. Aim to visit a dentist every 6 months for regular checkups and cleanings. 

Is it time for your child to see a dentist? February is a great time to do it! Contact Tribeca Dental Studio to schedule your appointment.

Did you know that Oral Health touches every aspect of our lives?

What causes gum disease?
Poor oral hygiene that allows bacteria in plaque and calculus to remain on the teeth and infect the gums is the primary cause of gum disease.
But there are other factors that increase the risk of developing gingivitis ( Gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, is inflammation of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth).

According to National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research Here are some of the most common risk factors:
● Smoking or chewing tobacco prevents the gum tissue from being able to heal.
● Crooked, rotated, or overlapping teeth create more areas for plaque and calculus to accumulate and are harder to keep clean.
● Hormonal changes in puberty, pregnancy, and menopause typically correlate with a rise in gingivitis. The increase in hormones causes the blood vessels in the gums to be more susceptible to bacterial and chemical attack.
● Cancer and cancer treatment can make a person more susceptible to infection and increase the risk of gum disease.
● Alcohol negatively affects the oral defense.
● Stress weakens the body’s immune response to bacterial invasion.
● Poor nutrition, such as a diet high in sugar and carbohydrates and low in water intake, will increase the formation of plaque.
● Poor salivation generation

What are the signs of Gum disease?
Healthy gums are firm, light pink, and fit tightly around your teeth. Although early-stage gingivitis isn’t always obvious, there are a few subtle signs that it’s developing. You have some degree of gingivitis if your gums:

● Appear swollen, puffy, or delicate

● Look dim red

Bleed during or after you brush

Gum disease doesn’t always affect your entire mouth. It can start in just one area or around certain teeth like your molars. Both dental plaque and tartar are filled with harmful bacteria, and if they aren’t removed from teeth, they will begin to irritate the gums and cause gingivitis. If left untreated, gum disease will frequently stretch out from the gums deep down and lead to periodontitis. (Is the point at which the bone underneath the gums gets excited or contaminated.

Is there Treatment for Gum Disease?
Yes of course. The number and sorts of treatment will shift, contingent upon the degree of the gum ailment. Whenever left untreated gum disease can transform into periodontitis — propelled gum infection. In this stage, your gums retreat away from your teeth, shaping open pockets that can without much of a stretch become tainted, which may require gum medical procedure.

How can gum surgery help me?
Moderate cases of gum disease can often be managed through traditional scaling and root planing treatments. Scaling removes plaque from below your gum line, while root planing smooths the tooth root to promote a stronger attachment between your teeth and your gum tissue. Gum surgery works to restore lost gum tissue by taking a graft of oral tissue from your palate — the roof of your mouth — and surgically stitching it in place over a root that’s been exposed by receding gums.
The best way to prevent periodontal disease or stop its progression is by maintaining good oral hygiene habits, which includes visiting Tribeca Dental Studio for routine cleanings and exams.

Helpful Tips You can keep your gums and teeth healthy by:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Flossing regularly to remove plaque from between teeth. Or, you can use a device such as a special brush, wooden or plastic pick, or a “water flosser” recommended by a dental professional.
  • Visiting the dentist routinely for a check-up and professional cleaning.
  • Quitting smoking.

Any type of treatment requires that the patient keep up good daily care at home. The dentist may also suggest changing certain behaviors, such as quitting smoking, as a way to improve your treatment results. Gum disease is one of the most common oral health conditions and the leading cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Although it typically starts out as a mild case of gingivitis, if left untreated, it can quickly progress into advanced gum disease, and the potential for gum surgery. The top-rated team at Tribeca Dental Studio in New York City (Manhattan) offers a complete menu of periodontal services and gum surgery, including surgical gum grafting for more advanced cases.

Lorem Ipsum title

Lorem ipsum is a pseudo-Latin text used in web design, typography, layout, and printing in place of English to emphasise design elements over content. It’s also called placeholder (or filler) text. It’s a convenient tool for mock-ups. It helps to outline the visual elements of a document or presentation, eg typography, font, or layout. Lorem ipsum is mostly a part of a Latin text by the classical author and philosopher Cicero.
