Replacing Missing Teeth With Dental Implants in Midtown Manhattan

At Herald Square Dental, we believe that no patient should leave our office with missing teeth, thanks to Dental Implants. Your 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.

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. 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 Surgery

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.

Single Tooth Replacement

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.

Mini Dental Implants (MDI)

Sometimes, one of our expert NYC implants dentists may recommend a zest implant, which is narrower in diameter than a full implant, and has a patented pivoting technology.

A mini dental implant, commonly referred to as a MDI, is made from the same medical grade titanium as traditional dental implants. MDIs are smaller and narrower in size. Their small size makes them the ideal way to replace smaller teeth or fill in tight gaps. MDIs can also be used to secure a bridge or dentures. MDIs are also a great alternative to traditional dental implants, especially when a patient is not a candidate for traditional dental implants.

Despite being smaller in size, mini dental implants are not considered less durable.

While traditional dental implants and mini dental implants are made from the same material, MDIs are often a more affordable option. MDIs are smaller and easier to place, leading to the reduced pricing.

Implant Supported Dentures in NYC

At Herald Square Dental we successfully place dental implants and insert custom implant supported dentures in NYC daily, fabricated in our own on-site laboratory. We can even fabricate premium porcelain dentures for a more natural look, in the same day.

Typically, when a tooth is lost, it is best for your oral health that you have it replace as soon as possible. Missing teeth can impact your bite, as well as your ability to chew or speak. Tooth loss can put extra stress on your remaining teeth as well, resulting in muscle pain in the jaw, as well as headaches. Not to mention- but losing a tooth also can affect your appearance. The following information reviews replacing missing teeth with an implant retained denture:

Ball Attachment Denture

One possible option is to have two implants placed in your lower jaw and a denture made that snaps onto these implants. This option allows for your lower denture to be more stable while chewing than without implants. However, there will still be some movement of your lower denture, and sore spots will occur if any food particles, especially seeds, are caught underneath the denture. As with all removable replacement teeth, you still will need regularly scheduled periodic appointments for denture adjustment.

Bar Attachment Denture

Another option involves placing four to six implants, depending on your jaw size or shape, into your lower jaw. After healing is complete, the implants are connected with a custom-made support bar. Your specially made denture will include internal retention clips that attach onto the support bar, enabling the denture to snap firmly into place. This is called an “overdenture.” The advantage of this option is that it is much more stable than the first option and allows very little denture movement. Your denture will still be removable for easy cleaning and maintenance.

Screw-Retained Denture

A third option for NYC dental implant retained dentures involves placing five or more implants in your jaw and attaching a permanent denture. Your denture is held in place by screws or clasps that secure it to the support posts or bar. It doesn’t touch the gum tissue and allows you to clean under the denture without removing it. This denture will replace all your missing lower teeth and will not be removed except at maintenance visits. Although cleaning under your denture without removing it is more time consuming and requires more dexterity, many patients who want a permanent denture will prefer this option.

Implant Retained Upper Denture

Depending upon the number of implants to be placed, it may be possible to eliminate the need for covering the roof of your mouth with a complete denture. This option allows you to fully taste your food and gives you a better sense of its temperature. Your denture will feel more natural. You will still have a removable denture, which makes cleaning the support bar and denture much easier.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Stability during eating
  • Bone and gum preservation
  • Improved dental hygiene
  • Superior esthetics
  • Nutritional benefits

Cost of Dental Implants

Dr. Yam and Dr. Shirzadnia, our experts in implantology, understand that choosing between today’s available tooth replacement methods can be quite difficult. That’s why we have come up with this guide of dental implants facts and figures. It is our goal, at Herald Square Dental, to help our patients make an informed decision about replacing their teeth—and feel good about it.

Lasting a Lifetime

Did you know that dental implants can last 2-3 times as long as other teeth replacement methods, such as bridges and dentures? That’s right! In fact, the longevity of our dental implants is often more than 25 years. Clearly, dental implants beat out all other teeth replacement methods when it comes to longevity and are well worth the investment. When all is said and done, dental implants end up paying for themselves.

Going Without

A little-known fact: Regular stimulation, as is done when chewing, biting and speaking, keeps the jawbone from deteriorating. So, if a tooth is missing, these functions cannot be executed, and deterioration sets in immediately. In fact, a year without a tooth can result in a 25% loss of supporting jawbone. Thanks to dental implants—titanium screws that fuse with bone—stimulation is provided, and jawbone mass is saved and maintained.

Living Your Best Life

Perhaps the greatest advantage of dental implants is the freedom they provide. The luxury of eating whatever you want, laughing with reckless abandon, and smiling ear to ear—these are priceless benefits indeed.

Dental implants can restore the appearance and function of your missing teeth-- reclaim the confidence to smile!

Does insurance cover dental implants?

Most insurance plans do not cover implants, but we are here to help you understand yours. We know how frustrating it can be to wade through insurance plans and benefits, so we are here to provide assistance in discerning the details of your dental insurance policy and choosing the treatment that would best accommodate your goals and your budget.

Dental Implants: Estimating Your Cost

The exact cost of dental implants depends on a variety of factors related to each individual patient’s case. So, call us to schedule a consultation and we will give you the most accurate estimate  for your dental implants at that appointment. We look forward to putting a smile back on your face.

Dental Implant Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much do dental implants cost?

While the upfront cost is often more than that of alternatives such as bridges and dentures, dental implants outlast those approaches by several decades. This increased longevity makes implants the more affordable choice in the long run.

Can I replace all of my teeth with dental implants?

What if I am missing all my lower teeth?

Although many patients have no problem wearing an upper denture, some of them might find it difficult to wear and eat with lower dentures. Several implant-supported replacement options are available if you are missing all of your lower teeth.

What if I am missing all my upper teeth?

A similar range of treatment options is also available for your upper jaw. However, because the bone is not as hard as that in the lower jaw, people often need more implants to support their new replacement teeth.

What if I have been told that I am not a candidate for conventional implants?

Even those patients that have been told that conventional implants were not an option can get excellent high performing results from mini-implants. For example: a patient who did not have sufficient bone thickness to accept a couple of large implants to anchor a full denture can get a structurally superior solution by distributing the load evenly among 4-6 mini-implants or zest implants. This leads to a less invasive, lower costing implant that requires less healing time and no need for additional bone grafting.

What are my options if dental implants fail?

How we at Herald Square Dental treat implant failure depends on its cause.

Whatever the situation is that has brought you to our renowned dental practice, an evaluation by one of our expert implant dentists will provide the information needed to create a treatment plan for your particular case. Herald Square Dental, NYC are leaders in implant placement, we are proud of the fact that our dental implant success rate closely mirrors the success rate overall, as reported in scientific literature, of 98 percent.

What can cause dental implants to fail?

  • Infection
  • Bone loss

5 out of 5 stars based on 17 Dental Implants and Implant Retained Dentures reviews

Patient Review By Stacey R

Dr. Yam placed an implant for my missing tooth today. I was super nervous, so I opted for the nitrous oxide inhalation mask and was able to wear my earbuds to distract myself. His assistant Amer kept me calm and patiently answered my 500 questions, and the actual surgery was so fast! Felt like 5 minutes. They showed me the radiographs immediately after, which was super interesting! So far no discomfort, and I would recommend this practice and especially Dr. Yam to anyone who is a wimp like me!

Patient Review By Pat H

I was completely terrified of the dentist before meeting Dr. Shirzadnia. I was so afraid that I would have to be sedated before any type of treatment. After my experience with Dr. Shirzadnia (which included a painless dental implant) I no longer need to be sedated before treatment; all because of Dr. Shirzadnia’s compassionate & caring nature. He is truly a master at his craft.
