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.

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.

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.
