Missing teeth can affect more than your smile; when we have missing teeth, other complications occur, such as biting difficulties and affected speech. Dental implants offer a long-lasting, predictable solution to tooth loss by providing an anchor for new teeth. At Brooklyn Dentist, we perform dental implants in Brooklyn NY for patients who are searching for a beautiful and functional smile.

What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are the result of significant advancements in dental research. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the bone in place of the tooth's natural root. This post is fitted with an abutment, onto which new crowns and bridges or dentures are fixed. Dental implants can also function as a stable anchor for permanent dentures and are known for their retention and ability to nurture good oral health.


Who is Qualified to Get Dental Implants?

To get dental implants in Brooklyn, you should be in otherwise good dental health. Signs of periodontitis or bone loss from missing teeth should be discussed with our dentists before your treatment plan can be put into action. Patients who are considering getting dental implants should also be non-smokers, as tobacco use prevents your body from healing after the surgical placement of dental implants.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?


You may have noticed that people who are missing multiple adjacent teeth develop a kind of depleted or sunken-in look. This problem is caused by diminishing jaw bone density. Dental implants prevent premature aging and a sunken appearance by stimulating the jawbone and filling out your smile.


Dental implants allow new dentures and dental crowns to behave like real teeth. Our patients discover they are able to chew, bite, and speak as they normally would, without having to worry about the inconveniences normally associated with traditional removable prostheses or less permanent restorations. Because the alloys used in dental implant treatment are durable and resilient, Brooklyn patients can enjoy their strong new smiles forever.


The titanium dental implant fuses to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. Posts become part of the jawbone, so when new restorations are fitted onto the dental implants, they cannot move around, or slip. This reinforces the strength of your new teeth, as well as healthy bone retention.

What Are Different Types of Dental Implants?

There are multiple types of dental implant restorations available in Brooklyn depending on the patient's expectations and resources. Here are a few popular options:
