If you have missing teeth that need replacement, you probably have already heard about dental implants. Dental implants have become a very popular way of having missing teeth replaced because they look, feel and function just like permanent teeth.

Our dentist also has more than 1,500 hours of continuing education credits. At our practice we provide expert dental care in the areas of preventive, general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is comprised of two sections: the upper porcelain crown and the lower titanium root section. If you are interested in getting dental implants in Brooklyn our dentist will have to make sure that your jawbone is strong enough to hold the titanium root. If you are considered to be a good candidate by Dr. Herskovits, he will begin the implant procedure by surgically implanting the dental implant root – one for each missing tooth. Every patient takes a different time to heal. However, it will most likely take several months for the healing process to complete. During this time the titanium implant root will fuse to the jawbone. This new implant root will serve as a very strong and steady base for the new tooth.
Once it is determined that the jawbone has completed its healing process, and that the titanium root has successfully fused to the jawbone, the porcelain crown portion of the tooth will be permanently attached to the root. At this point your dental implant will be complete and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits a dental implant has to offer. First of all, no one will be able to determine that you got dental implants in Brooklyn. The implants will be color-matched to the adjacent teeth and will blend in perfectly. You will also be able to eat any food with complete comfort and confidence. Finally, you will also be able to speak clearly without any fear that the implants will slip or interfere with your clear speech.
