Dental implants offer more natural-looking and comfortable alternatives than dentures while being easier to clean. Regular visits with your dental hygienist remain necessary.
Dental implants closely resemble real tooth roots. They promote bone growth and prevent jawbone loss while enabling you to eat more foods than with dentures.
Dental implant procedures offer our patients a way to replace missing teeth that look and function like natural ones. Titanium implants are surgically placed into the area where a tooth has been lost under local anesthesia for maximum comfort, after which they’ll be attached using a small post and secured into place within your jawbone by way of another small post before our restorative dentist can place a permanent artificial tooth overtop of it.
Dental implants offer an ideal way to replace a tooth’s root and visible portion, unlike dentures and bridges that only replace the visible part. Without root support, jawbones can resorb over time, leading to surrounding teeth shifting out of alignment. Dental implants eliminate this process by replacing both legs simultaneously, thus preventing further bone resorption.
Dental implants offer the unique capability of being restored with natural-looking replacement teeth that last a lifetime, giving you back your natural smile and eating and speaking without fear.
Experience, precision, and top-grade materials are essential when it comes to aesthetics—three things our New York dental implant center excels at providing. Led by a board-certified implant specialist with years of practice combined with cutting-edge technologies like cone beam CT scanners to produce remarkable results both esthetically and functionally for our patients. Furthermore, when appropriate, we utilize same-day implant placement methods to achieve maximum aesthetic impact for their results.
Dental implants integrate seamlessly with jaw bone structures and encourage healthy bone growth in their environment, helping keep teeth stable while also preventing shifting that could result in gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, or additional tooth loss.
Implants outlive other tooth replacement options and have the potential to last decades with proper care and regular dental visits. Their longevity depends on their location, crown type, and quality, as well as the overall oral health of their patient.
The premier NYC dental implant dentist utilizes a Cerec digital scanner for diagnosis and treatment planning while performing all surgical procedures himself. He takes pride in taking an all-encompassing approach to implant care by treating one patient at a time to provide personalized attention.
Most individuals in good health can receive dental implants. However, those who smoke or have uncontrolled chronic diseases such as diabetes may not qualify due to the risk of complications.
Dental implants provide more stability than other restoration options, such as bridges, by simultaneously replacing roots and natural teeth, giving patients confidence that they won’t experience their replacement becoming loose or falling out unexpectedly. This allows patients to eat, speak, and smile without worrying about loosening or losing their reserves.
Single dental implants boast a success rate of 95%, and many patients can enjoy them for years or even life. Their durability and easy upkeep make them appealing alternatives to dentures or bridges, providing long-term solutions without replacing teeth again later on.
Dental implants permanently solve missing tooth roots, offering natural-looking yet functional results. After being implanted into the jawbone through an osseointegration process, implants help patients eat and smile with renewed confidence while protecting bone resorption, which could otherwise lead to further tooth loss. Our dentists are highly experienced with a range of implant sizes, shapes, and materials (titanium/zirconia), so we can tailor treatment specifically for each – single tooth implants feature custom-made crowns designed to match the shade/shape/size of surrounding teeth for best results.
Implants offer more comfort than traditional solutions for missing teeth, such as dentures and bridges. Because implants are fixed fixtures, they won’t slip when speaking or eating and don’t require regular maintenance and cleaning like dentures to remain in good condition.
To qualify for dental implants, you must possess adequate bone strength and oral tissues that are in good health. An implant dentist will conduct an in-depth assessment of your mouth and medical history before suggesting this procedure; they may even offer guidance if other conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, arise that could influence its effects.

Loss of teeth creates gaps in one’s smile, making eating, talking, and laughing difficult for patients with multiple missing teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss by restoring strength and functionality of the mouth while supporting fixed and removable restorations like dental bridges or dentures.
An implant is designed to act as the replacement root for missing teeth and provides a firm foundation for replacement ones. The metal screw part of an implant fuses with the jawbone in an osseointegration process; our dentists will determine whether your jawbone has sufficient tissue material to support an implant during a consultation; otherwise, we may perform a bone graft to add new tissue material if necessary.
Dental implants support single replacement teeth, partial dentures, or complete dentures. Their titanium post stimulates jawbone cells to prevent their resorption; when produced enough, these stimulated cells stop leaching calcium into other body areas and maintain strength within themselves.
Dental implants also help prevent bone loss in the area where a missing tooth was lost, which would impact adjacent teeth and all aspects of oral health. Our dentists will work out a plan for replacing lost teeth while protecting against further damage to prevent other loss.
Most individuals in good oral health qualify for dental implants; we will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jawbone to find the ideal restoration option. To ensure maximum comfort during the procedure, we offer options like oral sedation; you will take a calming prescription before arriving and inhale nitrous oxide during surgery for maximum concentration but relaxed consciousness.
Missing teeth immensely affect your appearance and health, leading to changes in your bite, bone loss, and gum disease. But there’s good news if you suffer from missing teeth: A dental professional can replace both the root and the tooth via dental implants.
An implant consists of a titanium fixture surgically implanted into your jawbone. Your bone will then grow around and fuse to it through a process known as osseointegration; this typically takes 6–12 weeks. After healing, your dentist will place a cap or crown over the fixture to complete this procedure.
An implant will provide your jawbone with the stimulation it needs to prevent resorption and maintain its shape, without which the bone could lose density and shrink, leading to shifting teeth or even additional tooth loss. Furthermore, its presence will maintain facial structure integrity by keeping skin from sagging over time.
If you’re considering an All-on-4 procedure, it is vitally important that you choose an experienced implant dentist with all the appropriate diagnostic tools (e.g., a 3D cone beam CT machine and panoramic X-rays).
Before scheduling surgery, your dentist will carefully examine your oral health to ensure you’re in optimal condition. If any underlying dental problems exist, treatment will likely be suggested before implant placement. Suppose bone grafting is needed to achieve sufficient bone tissue for implant placement. In that case, a separate surgery may need to be scheduled for new bone tissue to heal before scheduling implant surgery.
