For many generations, removable dentures and fixed bridges were the only options for replacing teeth lost as a result decay, injury or gum disease. During more recent decades, dental implants have offered a more comfortable and natural looking alternative. With dental implants, you can go about your life without having to pay any more consideration to your dental implant or implants than you would your natural teeth. Dental implants do not irritate the gums nor interfere with chewing, taste or speech. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants allow you to chew any and all types of foods. Regular dental care is all that's needed because the implant is securely placed in the jaw. Our experienced cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Eugene D. Stanislaus, attained his dental implant expertise from the prestigious Misch International Implant Institute at the University of Pittsburgh.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw and topped by a replacement tooth. In a process known as osseointegration, the titanium post and the jawbone fuse. This occurs over time as the bone grows around the implant, providing the strongest possible replacement for missing teeth. A naturally looking replacement tooth is then attached to the titanium post to complete the dental implant restoration procedure.
About the Dental Implant Procedure at Brooklyn Heights Dental®
At our practice, we can many times provide same day placement of both dental implants and dental restorations (the replacement teeth placed upon the dental implant). Typically, after a dental implant is placed in the jaw, a patient must wait from three to six months for the jaw and the implant to fuse before replacement teeth can be attached to the implant. At Brooklyn Heights Dental®, located in Brooklyn, when the titanium post of a dental implant is secured in the jaw, and is deemed possess a certain strength, a dental restoration can be placed in the same day. While this dental restoration is temporary, and a more permanent replacement tooth will be placed during a second office visit after the jaw and implant have fused, this allows our patients to leave our office with a renewed smile that day. This reduces the inconvenience associated with waiting months for the placement of one or more replacement teeth.

The Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Because a titanium implant permanently fuses to the jawbone, dental implants are much more stable, reliable, and easy to maintain than conventional dentures. Because the implant is rooted in the jaw, common problems associated with missing teeth — like bone loss and gum recession — can also be avoided through implant dentistry. Those who choose dental implants at our practice serving Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, and surrounding communities, simply enjoy the freedom that dental implant provide. No longer do these individuals have to think about the possible embarrassment of denture slippage or the constant cleaning and maintenance of dental restorations. Instead, they can relax and treat their replacement teeth just like their own natural teeth.

The cost of this treatment varies considerably depending on a few factors, such as how many implants you receive, how complex your surgery is, and more. You will have a better understanding of what you can expect to pay after your initial consultation.
