Dental Implants in Manhattan
At Herald Square Dental, we believe that no patient should leave our office with missing teeth, thanks to Dental Implants. Your NYC dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can “Smile with Confidence!”, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants we use are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
At Herald Square Dental & The Denture Center, Dental implants are changing the way people live! We are inspiring self-confidence through recreating or improving your natural smile, restoring your ability to eat the foods you enjoy and so you can speak and smile with pride! With our expertly placed implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

During the consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Yam or Dr. Shirzadnia. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear a temporary appliance and function well during this time. At the same time, your NYC dental implants dentist designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
After the dental implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. Our top NYC dental implant dentists, Dr. Yam and Dr. Shirzadnia, can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
