  • Is a zirconium crown a good option for front teeth?

    Dependent on various factors, a zirconia crown may be a good option. The problem with zirconia generally is the translucency and opaqueness of the material. YES, it is strong, but it is generally not "naturally" looking. A preferred option in the front of your mouth is lithium disilicate, which is far more translucent and nicer looking. If the esthetics is your main concern, strongly consider lithium disilicate. For STRENGTH, zirconia. Good luck! Dr James Doundoulakis, DMD MS, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • What bridge material is the most durable?

    For most patients, the newer ALL Ceramic materials - non-metalic - work very well and are fairly esthetic. With some specific applications, the former porcelain to Metal fixed bridge may still need to be considered, dependent on the length of the bridge. Our patients mostly prefer the ALL "white " ceramic option most. And over time, these restorations have held up. All our patients are given a soft occlusal guard after their treatment is completed to help mitigate excessive forces during work outs or sleep. Good Luck!

  • How can I clean under implants?

    HI Good question! MOST dental implants are SINGLE TOOTH implants. You clean them As you would your natural teeth. For implant BRIDGES, there are multiple ways you can clean beneath the prosthesis, including, water piks, large diameter FLOSS with THREADERS, some flosses have the threaders already attached to the floss, as well as proxy BRUSHES. Us e the method that your dentists recommends for you and what works best. Good luck! Dr J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • What foods to avoid right after getting a filling?

    For most fillings, there is no need to avoid most foods Veneers and crowns are fabricated with the most durable, stain-resistant materials and you should have no worries. Some bonded fillings can stain, but most of that stain can be removed at your routine hygiene visits with your dentist. Good luck! Dr J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • What are the problems with partial dentures?

    RPD’s were popular 20-30 yrs ago. Yes, they do move when you eat or speak and can add more stresses to the remaining teeth that retain the appliance. Today the state of the art tooth replacement options are dental implants. If you have enough bone support AND can afford dental implant tooth replacement, that is the better option for you. Good luck! Dr J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • Can I drink alcohol 1 week after the dental implant?

    Generally, alcohol probably can be enjoyed one week after implant surgery. Of course, always drink in moderation. What should be strongly considered is rinsing with warm salt water the day After the surgical procedure. You should still ask your implant surgeon these questions and follow their advice. Dr. J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • Which crown is the best natural looking for front teeth?

    The most aesthetic crown material available today are either lithium disilicate or zirconia. Each has a specific advantage and disadvantage. Both can be veneered with Porcelain to greatly improve the final esthetic appearance of the new crown(s). Good luck! Dr. J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • Why do you get antibiotics after a dental implant?

    Not all implant patients are prescribed antibiotics after they receive dental implants. Antibiotics are prescribed for specific reasons on a case-by-case basis. Generally, for a single tooth implant surgery, we don't routinely prescribe antibiotics. Ask Your implant surgeon, if you will require antibiotics for your implant surgery any why. Dr. J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich CT READ MORE

  • Can I brush my teeth with partial dentures?

    Of course you can!! Simply remove the new prostheses, brush AND floss your remaining teeth, Clean the new prostheses with Liquid Soap and a denture brush, rinse well, and then reinsert the RPD's. This "ideally" should be done after each meal - bust at least clean your mouth well at the end of the day prior to bedtime. During the day, most patients remove the prostheses, rinse their mouths and the RPD with running water and then re-insert them. At bedtime, best to clean the prosthesis well and leave them in a protected container at night. Dr. J Doundoulakis, prosthodontist, Greenwich, CT READ MORE
