Dental Implants Manhattan

Over the past few decades, dental implants have literally changed peoples’ lives, restoring their smiles, their ability to eat anything, and their confidence. But over the past several years, in Manhattan, Dr. Kissel has taken dental implant treatment to another level with microtechniques that increase comfort during the procedures, reduce healing time after surgery, and dramatically improve the final aesthetic results.

Are you ashamed of your smile because you have missing, diseased or decayed teeth? Are you afraid that your smile isn’t leaving the lasting impression that you’d like? If you’re a Manhattan resident who has lost teeth, or needs to have teeth removed due to disease or decay, you are likely looking for a tooth replacement option to both restore your beautiful smile and provide you with the oral function you need. Well, you need look no more. When you go to Manhattan’s Dr. Kissel for dental implants, he will restore your smile, giving you back the confidence to show off your pearly whites and the function you need to eat all of your favorite foods.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the latest invention in tooth replacement technology. These built-to-be-permanent devices are made of biocompatible material – titanium – that are inserted into your mouth through Dr. Kissel’s microsurgery techniques. The titanium implant acts as a tooth root, anchoring the tooth in your mouth and stimulating the growth of your jawbone. The titanium implant is covered with a natural tooth looking crown, giving you a smile you can be proud of and allowing you to regain the ability to eat anything you want.

Why Dental Implants?

Missing teeth in adults living in Manhattan significantly affect aesthetics and oral function. Some of the problems resulting from tooth loss include bone resorption, or deterioration, shifting of other teeth into spaces created by missing teeth, muscle distress, and misalignment of the bite. Dental implants are substitute tooth roots, creating a solid foundation for replacement teeth that provide the same function and appearance as natural teeth. Dental implants also prevent the bone resorption that occurs when teeth are lost or removed.


As a result of the many benefits of dental implants and the extremely high success rates, dental implant treatment has become the preferred method of tooth replacement for many Manhattan patients. Some of the many benefits include:

Preservation of facial structure. Dental implants prevent bone resorption and can actually stimulate bone growth.

Healthier adjacent teeth. With dental implants, there is no need to cut teeth down for a bridge, or weaken them by attaching a partial denture.

Strength and durability. Done correctly dental implants can last a lifetime.

Enhanced function. Dental implants function like your natural teeth with a secure foundation.

Safe and biocompatible. Made from titanium, a biocompatible material, dental implants integrate easily with bone and tissue.

Improved oral hygiene. A single implant-supported crown can be brushed and flossed just like a natural tooth.

Complete confidence. Dental implants remain stable when smiling, speaking or eating.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Manhattan residents should consider dental implants for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Increased Oral Function. Dental implants act and feel like normal teeth, making it possible for you to eat all of your favorite foods, no matter how hard, crunchy or sticky they are.
  • Beautiful Tooth Replacement Option: Dental implants look so real that others won’t be able to tell that they aren’t your natural teeth.
  • Prevent Bone Loss: When you are missing teeth, your jawbone shrinks, but dental implants insert into the jawbone to stimulate bone growth.
  • Healthier Adjacent Teeth: Dental implants don’t affect your adjacent teeth, unlike bridges, which require them to be drilled down to fit inside crowns.
  • Built to Last: If you care for your dental implants properly, they can last your entire lifetime!
  • Made from titanium, dental implants are a safe solution that integrates into your jawbone.
  • Easy to Maintain: All you need to do to care for your dental implants is brush them and floss them, just as you do your natural teeth.
  • The Best Aesthetic Solution: Gain confidence when you flash your smile on the streets of Manhattan with dental implants that look like natural teeth.

Dental Implants with Microsurgery

Dental implants through microsurgery comfortably replace teeth without the trauma of major incisions, pain, and the recovery period that accompany traditional surgical methods. When using microsurgery, Manhattan periodontist, Dr. Kissel replaces teeth without major incisions, utilizing a microscope for greater visibility and using highly sophisticated, customized micro-instruments to create very small openings.

This allows him to operate without disturbing sensitive tissue, muscle, and nerves, resulting in more comfort during the procedure and less recovery time. Unlike traditional techniques, the surrounding gum tissue will appear normal after the surgery because of the limited incisions and trauma that microscopic instruments create.

Advantages of Manhattan Dental Implant Microsurgery

  • Optimum visibility and precise positioning of the dental implant.
  • Superior aesthetic results.
  • Smaller surgical incisions and openings.
  • Reduced pain, swelling, bleeding, and trauma to the tissues.
  • Faster recovery and fewer risks of complications.

Three to four months after the procedure, Dr. Kissel inspects the dental implants to ensure that they have properly bonded to the bone. He will then coordinate with the restorative dentist, who will fabricate and attach the final replacement teeth.

By the end of the process, patients have naturally beautiful smiles with new teeth that provide all the functionality of natural teeth. Throughout treatment, Dr. Kissel and his team are available to answer questions, respond to concerns, and support patients in achieving their goals for the health and appearance of their smiles.

Choosing Dr. Kissel for Microsurgery of Manhattan Dental Implants

Getting dental implants is a major oral surgery procedure. However, Manhattan’s Dr. Kissel uses advanced microsurgery techniques to make the surgery and recovery time faster, easier and more comfortable for you. When you come to Dr. Kissel’s Manhattan office for dental implants surgery, he will often perform the procedure under a microscope, using micro-instruments.

Because you’ll be having microsurgery performed at Dr. Kissel’s Manhattan office, your dental implants incisions will be smaller and will avoid cutting into sensitive tissues, muscles, and nerves. Your incisions won’t require stitches, and your surrounding gums will remain unaffected, leaving you with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance after your Manhattan dental implants microsurgery.

Three Dimensional Implant Planning

Dr. Kissel has also used computer generated three dimensional implant planning for 20 years.  He uses various programs to meet your personal situation.  This is another modality that results in greater accuracy and safety in implant planning and placement.  This planning takes place outside the mouth, so the actual procedure time can be greatly reduced. 

Replacing Multiple Teeth At Once

If you’re a Manhattan dental patient who is missing multiple teeth, rest assured that dental implants are still the solution for you. In fact, if you are missing multiple adjacent teeth, it’s possible to use one dental implant to support multiple, attached tooth crowns. And if you’re a Manhattan resident who needs a full mouth restoration, then All-on-4 dental implants treatment can replace an entire mouth full of teeth with just four dental implants!

Caring For Your Manhattan Dental Implants

Caring for your dental implants is easy. You simply need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once daily, and visit your Manhattan dentist for bi-annual checkups, even if you have a mouth full of dental implants. The reason is that you want to maintain proper gum and jawbone health, and regular visits to your dentist can ensure that your oral health is doing great. You’ll also want to avoid smoking, as smoking can interfere with the jawbone’s ability to fuse with the dental implant, causing implant failure – a condition in which the dental implants become loose and need to be removed, or fall out on their own.
