Answers to Your Dental Prosthodontics Questions

Have you considered dental prosthodontics as an avenue to restore your smile, boost your self-esteem, and improve your ability to confidently eat and speak? You probably have many questions to ask when you meet with Dr. Abraham Stein at his office in Skokie, IL. After you call to make your appointment, why not read through our answers to the most-asked prosthodontics questions?

Q: What is dental prosthodontics, anyway?

The easiest way to understand dental prosthodontics is to look at the roots that make up the word “prosthodontics.”

If “prostho-” reminds you of the word “prosthesis,” you are on the right track.  A prosthesis is something attached, as in a prosthetic arm or leg. The second part of prosthodontics, “-dontics,” simply refers to the teeth. This means that dental prostheses are additions or attachments to the teeth. Therefore, prosthodontics is the field of dentistry dedicated to the fabrication and placement of artificial teeth.

Q: What are some examples of dental prosthodontics?

Dental prosthodontics is an umbrella term that encompasses several possible treatments. For instance, Dr. Stein regularly places dental implants, a safe, popular teeth replacement method. In fact, he has placed more than 1,500 implant-supported dentures during his career as a practicing prosthodontist.

Other treatments that fall under the category of dental prosthodontics include:

  • Dental crowns: Dental crowns cover damaged teeth. They provide stabilization, function, and aesthetic appeal.
  • Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They can last many years with proper care.
  • Dentures: All types of dentures, from full to dentures supported by dental implants, fall into the prosthodontics category. Today’s denture varieties can be truly beautiful and extremely lifelike. If you are missing a full arch and have uncomfortable dentures, discuss other denture types that might be more appropriate.
  • Dental Bridges: A dental bridge spans the smile gap created by one, two, or sometimes three missing teeth. At our office, Dr. Stein places traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bridges, and implant-supported bridges.

Q: Is a prosthodontist a dentist?

The short answer? All prosthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are prosthodontists. That’s because a dentist can only become a prosthodontist by undergoing additional education after graduating from dental school.

Dr. Stein is a great example. After receiving his dental degree, he completed specialized prosthodontic residency training. He has continued to stay on the leading edge of the field and has received honors from the American College of Prosthodontist Awards.

Q: How do I know what kind of dental treatment I need?

Without a thorough examination, you might not be sure if prosthodontic treatment right for you. Dr. Stein can help you understand which types of procedures make sense for your goals and unique case.

Q: Are dental prostheses available for patients of all ages?

Dental prostheses are most frequently considered by patients who have permanent adult teeth. However, some younger patients with tooth damage or severe decay may want to talk with Dr. Stein about certain treatments, such as dental crowns. If you aren’t sure if you’re a candidate for dental prosthodontics, Dr. Stein can help you decide.

5 Reasons Aesthetic Dentistry Is So Popular

There is little doubt that aesthetic dentistry treatments are on the upswing. In fact, many current and new patients of Drs. Abraham Stein and Zachary Weiss contact the office at (847) 676-3500 to specifically discuss cosmetically improving their smiles. Why? Although everyone’s case is unique, check out five of the top reasons that aesthetic dentistry has risen in popularity among individuals of all ages.

Boost in Social Media and Online Sharing

From seniors in high school to senior citizens, Americans love their social sharing. It is common to see individuals taking selfies or images with their friends wherever they go. Not only are they snapping pictures for their own benefits, but they are posting them immediately online, sending them via text, or uploading them through apps.

This type of constant social sharing has led men, women, and teens to think more about the way their teeth look when they smile. Plus, job seekers with professional social media accounts often want to ensure that their images look as attractive as possible. This leads many patients to their local dentist in Skokie, IL to talk about aesthetic dentistry treatments including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Wide Range of Available Treatments

Cosmetic dentistry options run the gamut from single-visit procedures to long-term treatments that require extensive planning, as in the case of smile makeovers. Many patients are surprised by the expansive selection of aesthetic possibilities they can consider. Although not every individual will be a candidate for every procedure, most patients can work with a cosmetic dentist to find an appropriate treatment for their smile goals.

Myriad Professional Development Opportunities

Career-minded professionals seeking new job opportunities routinely ask their dentists about cosmetic treatments. Why? They know that having a more perfect, gleaming smile will boost their confidence. What could be better than a dash of improved self-esteem before a high-powered, important interview? It could mean the difference between hearing “You’re hired!” or “We’ll consider you for future roles.”

Even professionals who are satisfied with their current jobs may choose cosmetic dentistry as a way to feel better in general. This may be the first time in their lives that they can afford to take care of their teeth and gums the way they want.

Desired Confidence Infusion

Having higher confidence is linked to everything from being able to make better life choices to just walking taller in general. Simply undergoing a routine dental bonding procedure to fix a discolored or slightly imperfect tooth can have a major impact on a patient’s attitude. This type of confidence infusion can have wide-ranging positive effects, especially if an individual has lived for many years embarrassed about their smile.

Longer Life Expectancy

Thanks to significantly improved health and nutrition, men and women are enjoying an unprecedented life expectancy. Not surprisingly, many patients are treating themselves to cosmetic dentistry options when they are well into their 70s, 80s, and even beyond. No one is too old to discuss smile enhancement choices with their local dentist.

Teeth Whitening: Cosmetic Dentistry at Its Brightest

teeth whitening smile on woman

When you think of cosmetic dentistry treatments, you may immediately think of porcelain veneers and dental bonding. However, professional teeth whitening is perhaps one of the fastest growing, most requested types of cosmetic dentistry services requested by Skokie, IL patients. Find out if teeth whitening is suitable for your needs by contacting Drs. Abraham Stein and Zachary Weiss by calling our practice at (847) 676-3500.

Why Teeth Whitening?

What makes teeth whitening from a dentist such an attractive choice for patients who have fallen out of love with their smiles? Consider these following advantages:

  • Immediacy: Teeth whitening products that you receive from a dentist are much stronger and safer than the ones you can find at your local store. This means they offer faster results, which is perfect if you want a dazzling smile for an upcoming event.
  • Consistency: A big complaint about over-the-counter teeth whitening products is that they may provide highly inconsistent results. One tooth could be noticeably whiter than others, or all the teeth could wind up being different shades.
  • Safety: Most patients do not tell their dentists when they try over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions and products. They take a chance whenever they use a product because they do not have a dentist’s approval on their side. Worse yet, plenty of individuals try do-it-yourself teeth whitening “tricks” which can cause long-term problems. Dentists only use the safest teeth whitening treatments because they know the whiteners will not harm patients’ teeth.
  • Cost: Although over-the-counter teeth whitening boxes and strips cost less to purchase, their performance is typically subpar. Patients often try box after box before finally coming to their dentist for reliable, predictable results. In other words, they spend much more when they could have saved by coming to the dentist first.

Physical and Psychological Advantages to Cosmetic Teeth Whitening

Can having a whiter smile actually have practical, concrete advantages for a patient? Many patients who get teeth whitening through their dentists report numerous benefits, such as:

  • They feel more confident in social situations.
  • They worry less about the way they look in pictures.
  • They take better care of their teeth to maintain their new, bright smile.
  • They feel more attractive overall, especially during special events or at celebratory occasions.
  • They begin to consider other ways to improve their smiles, such as with restorative dental implants or dental crowns.

Candidacy for Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an ideal treatment solution for many patients, but it may not be the right choice for all candidates who have stained or discolored teeth. For instance, individuals whose teeth are stained brown or gray due to long-term use of antibiotics will not respond to teeth whitening. The same is true for patients whose teeth have “gone dark” after suffering a trauma. In those cases, a different cosmetic dentistry treatment such as placement of porcelain veneers may produce desired results.

However, patients whose teeth have yellowed because of normal aging and food or smoking stains may be prime candidates for teeth whitening. In all cases, underlying untreated conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay should be addressed before undergoing teeth whitening treatments.

Is Full Mouth Restoration Right for You?

They say that a smile is a person’s best accessory, and we here at the Stein Center believe that to be 100 percent true. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have a cavity-free, damage-free, and pain-free set of pearly whites. For some, a full mouth restoration is exactly what the dentist ordered. That’s where we come in. 

What is Full Mouth Restoration?

full mouth restoration involves a unique blend of dental treatments intended to recreate, restore, and improve your overall oral health and appearance of your smile. Thanks to the countless advances that have taken place in the dental arts over the years, we have a wide variety of procedures available to tackle each patient’s unique dental needs and treat any and all teeth-related imperfections.

So, who’s the best candidate for this type of treatment? If you suffer from any kind dental damage, no matter the severity, you may be an ideal candidate. Full mouth restoration may be necessary if your smile is affected by any or all of the following:

  • Tooth decay– Mild to severe tooth decay occurs when both the internal and external structure of the tooth is damaged.  If left untreated, a cavity, or hole in the tooth, can form. Typically, we use  tooth-colored fillings or dental crowns to reduce the appearance of the cavity.
  • Tooth discoloration– Tooth discoloration can be attributed to a variety of factors, from inadequate brushing and flossing to stain-producing foods and drinks, these things can leave your smile looking dull and yellowed. Oftentimes, patients with dental discoloration choose to use dental crowns, veneers, or profession teeth whitening treatments to mask the stains.
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth– Large cavities, teeth grinding, biting hard foods, and trauma can all cause a tooth to break. Minor chips can be treated with veneers, while teeth with larger fractures may require more complex treatments like dental crowns.
  • Missing teeth– Gum disease, tooth decay, injury, and genetics are common causes of tooth loss. A mouth full of missing teeth can result in difficulty eating and speaking, ultimately impacting your quality of life. Luckily, we offer a multitude of treatment options, including dental implants, for restoring one or more missing teeth.

What Does Full Mouth Restoration Entail?

Based on your own distinct dental needs, our team of highly trained professionals will recommend certain processes as part of your full mouth restoration process. These procedures include the following: 

Let Us Give You a Reason to Smile

Life is too short to be overcome with self-consciousness every time you smile. You owe it to yourself to do whatever’s necessary to get the smileyou know you deserve.

Your Questions Answered about All-On-Four Dental Implants

If you’re someone who hates smiling for pictures because you’re embarrassed about your teeth, All-On-Four® dental implants may be an option. These innovative implants provide a solution for people who have experienced issues with dentures or bridges. Our doctors at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry can discuss the possibility of All-On-Four dental implants, as well as other types of restorative dental work.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small threaded posts, which are surgically implanted into the jawbone below the gum line. Replacement teeth are then mounted onto them. Dental implants can be restored by crowns and bridges. Additionally, they can help stabilize dentures and keep them from slipping, a common complaint for those who wear these types of prostheses. According to Colgate, “For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging.”[1]

Patients who choose implant-supported restorations can also forgo preparing or grinding down adjacent teeth – a step that is necessary to support traditional restorations, such as dental bridges. As one of the most versatile treatments in dentistry, implants can achieve single, multiple, or full-mouth teeth replacement.

What are All-On-Four dental implants?

With All-On-Four implants, the doctor can attach an entire row of upper or lower teeth using only four precisely placed implants. They are also referred to as full-arch fixed implant bridges.

To perform this treatment, your doctor will place two implants vertically near the front of the jaw and two angled implants near the back of the jaw. This balances forces evenly across the bite for optimal stability. Once in place, a fixed full-arch bridge is attached to the implant posts, providing patients with a beautiful, functional, natural-looking smile.

How are All-On-Four dental implants different?

Individuals seeking standard dental implants require sufficient bone density to support the posts. With All-On-Four, patients who were once ineligible for implants can now qualify for this type of treatment. Additionally, All-On-Four dental implants do not typically require bone grafting. All you need is four implants to hold the bridge in place.

One of the biggest advantages of All-On-Four is that you can often have a fixed prosthesis placed on the same day. In contrast, standard dental implants usually require several months of healing before the final restoration can be attached.

What are the benefits of All-On-Four dental implants?

Along with helping to stop dentures from slipping, there are other benefits from choosing All-On-Four dental implants:

  • Eliminate the need for bone grafting, which is invasive, uncomfortable and expensive
  • Help with speech issues caused by dentures
  • Help those who have a hard time adapting to bridge thickness
  • Increased proprioception – The ability of an implant to sense the force of a bite (much like natural teeth)

Who should consider All-On-Four dental implants?

We often recommend All-On-Four dental implants for patients who need to replace all or the majority of their teeth. It may also be a good option if you have low bone volume or are unable to have a bone graft due to another health condition like diabetes or osteoporosis. If you have previously been told you do not qualify for dental implants due to bone loss, ask your dentist about the All-On-Four technique. It could be a solution for you.

All-On-Four dental implants could be your solution to a smile you will be proud to show off. Contact our Skokie, IL office to schedule an appointment for restorative dental services today.


Prosthodontics: Specializing in Beautiful Smiles

While modern dentistry has made excellent strides over the years, misconceptions surrounding the industry still abound. Contrary to popular belief, dentists don’t hold a monopoly on improving a patient’s overall oral health. They don’t oversee and perform every dental procedure, nor are they expected to do so. In fact, a suitable patient pathway often involves interfacing with professionals spanning various dental disciplines, from endodontics to dentofacial orthopedics, and everything in between. Here, our doctors at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry will discuss the importance of consulting with a prosthodontist for your oral health needs.

What is Prosthodontics?

Much like medicine, dentistry is highly specialized. And as one of nine branches officially recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA), prosthodontics is dentistry’s oldest and arguably, most complex specialty.

Prosthodontics as a specialty has always been divided into three distinctive areas:

  • Fixed prosthodontics, which includes non-removable crowns and bridges
  • Removable prosthodontics, which includes full and partial dentures
  • Maxillofacial prosthodontics, which involves the treatment of genetic defects such as cleft palate, as well as post-surgical reconstruction following oral cancer treatment

Commonly referred to as “the architects of dentistry,” prosthodontists undergo three years of extensive training following general dental school in which they are provided with the tools and expertise to diagnose and treat patients using biocompatible alternatives to replace missing or damaged teeth. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, more than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth, and nearly 120 million people in the U.S. have at least one missing tooth.

Who Needs to See a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are trained using state-of-the-art techniques to restore optimal function and improve the overall aesthetics of a smile. Thus, any patient with multifaceted restorative needs should consult a prosthodontist for before going through with treatment.

While edentulism (toothlessness) disproportionately affects aging and economically disadvantaged populations, many patients are middle-aged adults or older who have many years of accumulated wear and tear on their teeth.

Types of Procedures:

As their title suggests (“prosthesis” = addition, “odont” = tooth), these specialists plan and execute procedures related to, in part or in full, the replacement of natural teeth. Some of these treatments include:

  • Dental Implants: There are times when replacing an entire tooth is the only viable option. These days, dental implants consist of a titanium metal post which is inserted into the jaw, fusing with the jaw bone, providing a solid base for a lifelike crown. While implants are on the costlier side of tooth replacement methods, they can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns: Crowns are artificial caps designed to replace the surface of a tooth right above the gum line. They are often required after a root canal, or to repair cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made to conceal the front surfaces of teeth. Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, or missing entirely, veneers deliver a practical all-in-one solution.
  • Fixed Bridges: Harnessing the power of existing healthy teeth, this tooth-replacement method involves a series of linked crowns being fabricated as a single unit, which is then attached to the prepared abutment teeth (teeth supporting the bridge).
  • Dentures: Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, dentures can improve the overall aesthetics and functionality of someone who is missing multiple teeth, particularly when the dentures are crafted to a higher standard of workmanship and fitted properly in the mouth.

60076 Dentist | 6 Harmful Habits That Affect Your Teeth

Dentist in Skokie

Nearly everyone has at least one habit that they wish they could break. Did you know that some of them can affect your oral health? Here are a few common habits and tips for how to break them.

  1. Nail Biting

Why it’s harmful: Your dental health may suffer from nail biting by possibly chipping your teeth or impacting your tooth. You place pressure on your jaw when you leave it in a protruding position for long periods of time. You could also tear or damage your gums.

The solution: Some patients find it helpful to wear a mouth guard to deter form nail biting. Other ways to reduce nail biting include using therapy techniques, reducing stress, or applying bitter tasting nail polish.

  1. Brushing Too Hard

Why it’s harmful: It’s best to brush your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day. Make sure to not brush too hard since this can lead to damage to the teeth and gum irritation. When you brush too hard, you risk gum recession and not cleaning your teeth efficiently.

The solution: Instead of brushing hard, use a soft toothbrush and apply a proper pressure. Let your toothbrush bristles touch your gums at a 45 degree angle and reduce the force of your brush on your gums.

  1. Grinding and Clenching

Why it’s harmful: This can chip or crack your teeth as well as cause muscle tenderness and joint pain. You may also experience a painful sensation when chewing or inability to open your mouth wide.

The solution: Stay aware of your teeth grinding and clenching and use relaxation exercises to keep from doing both. A mouthguard can also help protect you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. This will reduce any tooth pain, or muscle soreness and give you a better sleep. Our dentist can provide recommendations for how to combat teeth grinding.

  1. Chewing Ice Cubes

Why it’s harmful: Tooth enamel and ice are both crystals. When you push two crystals against each other, it can cause one to break. This may be the ice and sometimes it may be the tooth.

The solution: Try drinking beverages without ice or use a straw instead.

  1. Constant Snacking

Why it’s harmful: If your diet consists heavily of sugary foods and drinks, you are at a higher risk of forming cavities. The cavity-causing bacteria feast on leftover food and produces acid that attacks the outer shell of your teeth.

The solution: To reduce snacking, eat balanced meals so that you can feel fuller, longer. You should avoid sugary foods when snacking. If you are tempted to eat the occasional sugary snack, just make sure to drink a glass of water after to wash away the leftover food.

  1. Using Your Teeth as a Tool

Why it’s harmful: Using your teeth as a tool to hold items, open bottles, cut through thread, or other functions can put you at risk for chipped or broken teeth or jaw injuries.

The solution: Your teeth should never be used to hold or open items or to cut things when you don’t have scissors at your disposal. Look for your scissors or find someone that can give you a hand. Your mouth will thank you for it and you’ll be saving yourself from potentially costly and painful dental complications.

Dentist in Skokie | 6 Facts You Didn’t Know About Your Toothbrush

Dentist Near Me

Do you ever think about your toothbrush? You use it twice a day, but how much do you know about it? We’ve compiled a list of interesting toothbrush facts. The next time you brush, consider these bits of trivia.

  1. Toothbrushes may be less common than mobile devices

It is believed that more people own and use a mobile device than those who own and use a toothbrush. With nearly 8 billion mobile devices, the world has more mobile phones, tablets, and other gear than people. However, only 3.5 billion people are estimated to use a toothbrush.

  1. Origin story

It is believed that the first modern toothbrush was invented by a prisoner in England. Sometime around 1780, William Addis created a toothbrush from bone and used swine bristle for the brush.

  1. A long history

Long before Mr. Addis invented what we know as the toothbrush, ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, and Chinese crafted tools for cleaning their teeth. The ancient Chinese used “chewing sticks” to freshen breath as early as 1600 BCE.

  1. What are the bristles?

Originally, toothbrush bristles were primarily made from cow hairs or boar hair. Today, nylon is the material of choice, and has been since the 1930s.

  1. What color is your toothbrush?

Blue is the most common toothbrush color. The second most common color is red.

  1. A home for bacteria

More than 100 million bacteria call your toothbrush home. You don’t get sick regularly because, like your toothbrush, your mouth is home to hundreds of millions of bacteria. Your body is quite effective at fighting off these germs, but if you don’t change your toothbrush regularly or share with someone else, you might catch an illness.

Now that you are a toothbrush expert, spread the word about the importance of regular brushing. Be sure to brush for two minutes twice each day. The American Dental Association recommends that you change your toothbrush every three to four months. If you have a weakened immune system or have been sick recently, you should replace your toothbrush.

Skokie, IL Dentist | How Probiotics Improve Oral Health

Dentist Near Me

 

Skokie DentistProbiotics are typically advertised as being helpful for digestion. However, studies have shown that they can also improve oral health. Probiotics are beneficial for fighting infections that lead to oral disease.

Reducing Gingivitis

A study published in Contemporary Clinical Dentistry has found that probiotics can reduce gum bleeding in patients with moderate to severe gingivitis. In the trial, children were given either a placebo or two different combinations of probiotics. At the three-week mark, it was discovered that children who took probiotics had significant improvements in their gingival status.

Combating Periodontitis

Periodontitis is another oral disease that probiotics have been shown to fight. Periodontitis is caused by harmful bacteria that separate teeth from the gums creating pockets that can become infected. Probiotics can fight harmful bacteria and lessen the inflammation to help heal the mouth.

Fighting Cavities

Another finding from the trial of the Contemporary Clinical Dentistry showed that children who took probiotics also saw a significant decrease in plaque. The reduction of plaque leads to less decay. Probiotics fight the plaque and occupy the spaces on the teeth where bad bacteria thrive.

Minimizing Bad Breath

Another benefit of probiotics is the effect they have on bad breath. Bad breath is usually caused by volatile sulfur compound bacteria releasing odor-causing gases. Because probiotics are healthy bacteria, it is believed that they can eliminate the bad bacteria and maintain a healthy bacteria balance in your mouth.

The benefits of probiotics are not just limited to the digestive health. Researchers continue to conduct studies to discover new ways probiotics contribute to a healthy mouth and body.

60076 Dentist | Coffee and Your Teeth

Dentist Near Me

Coffee is well-known as hazardous to teeth, but there are things you can do besides cut it out completely. Here are some things to know about coffee’s effects on your oral health and diet, as well as how to mitigate them.

Contrary to popular belief, the pigments that give coffee its color can stain your teeth regardless of whether you take your coffee black or with cream. These pigments embed themselves in microscopic crevices and pits in your tooth enamel and are difficult to remove. To counteract this, don’t give the pigments time to set. When drinking coffee, drink quickly instead of sipping over a long period. Enjoy, then rinse your mouth with water to help neutralize the acid. In addition, following your recommended schedule of dental cleanings can help prevent stains. Whitening can improve the color of your teeth if mild staining has started. Ask our doctor how best to keep your smile bright.

Coffee can have minor benefits for your nutrition, but there are also things to beware. Drinks that are high in dairy fat or sugar can add substantial calories, as well as contributing to the chance of tooth decay. Try making your own coffee at home, where you can control the ingredients used. Minimize your use of creamer and sugar, or try using non-fat or sugar-free substitutes.

Coffee can still be a healthy party of your life if you take some care to protect your teeth. For more tips or to schedule a professional cleaning, contact our office.

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
