Determine the Type of Dental Implants You Need

You can’t tell with your naked eye if you need endosteal or subperiosteal dental implants, or if you are a candidate for dental implants at all. Only a full oral examination with an experienced periodontist can determine this.  The examination will likely include X-rays and may also include an oral CT scan. Together, these tests and oral examinations will reveal whether or not:


  1. You have enough jawbone tissue for endosteal implants;
  2. You need a jawbone graft;
  3. You are a candidate for subperiosteal dental implants instead of receiving a jawbone graft; or
  4. You need a sinus lift if receiving upper jaw dental implants.

What Makes Dental Implants Different from Dental Bridges or Dentures

When you have missing teeth, eating and digesting your food can be challenging. What’s more, if the missing teeth are visible, you may feel embarrassed to talk, laugh or smile. Consequently, many New York City residents with missing teeth try to find a tooth replacement solution – the most common being dental bridges or dentures. However, these popular teeth replacements, often shift or even fall out and may need frequent refitting. This can affect your quality of life. 


Dental implants, on the other hand, are part of your jaw just like the roots of your natural teeth. They act and can be treated just like your natural teeth. Recent research has estimated a success rate of 97% after a 10-year period. Dental implant procedures offered by Manhattan periodontist, Dr. Kissel, can be the best way to reclaim your beautiful smile and the full functionality of your teeth. He uses microsurgery to perform many dental implant procedures making the surgery and recovery time period easier and faster for you.

Why Are Dental Implants Popular?

Over the last two decades, dental implants have become increasingly popular for the replacement of missing, severely decayed, or diseased teeth. In fact, according to recent iData Researchabout 3 million people in the U.S. replace their missing teeth with dental implants each year. The popularity may be attributed to these simple facts:


  • Dental implants are designed to be permanent and create beautiful, healthy smiles. 
  • Unlike dentures or dental bridges, teeth implants enable you to eat and chew your favorite foods without running the risk of your new teeth moving or shifting. 
  • Basically, they act just like your natural teeth from all perspectives, including maintenance – best of all, you won’t have to worry about cavities!

Unique Dental Implants Technique – Microsurgery

Dr. Kissel takes dental implants one step further with microsurgery techniques that make the surgery and recovery time easier and faster. Microsurgery techniques allow Dr. Kissel to make smaller incisions without stitches, which is less painful than traditional dental implant surgery. Microsurgery also significantly reduces the risk of complications since the better one can see, the more knowledge one acquires resulting in careful manipulation of tissues and critical anatomy.


Because Dr. Kissel uses microsurgery techniques, he can operate without causing major incisions and trauma to sensitive tissue, muscles, and nerves. The result is a more comfortable procedure and a faster recovery time. Additionally, because Dr. Kissel only makes small incisions with micro-instruments, your surrounding gum tissue will appear normal after surgery, as shown in the photos below.

Benefits of the Microsurgery Approach

Dr. Kissel uses advanced microsurgery techniques to make the surgery and recovery time faster, easier, and more comfortable for his patients. When you come to Dr. Kissel’s office for dental implant surgery, he will often perform the procedure under a microscope, using micro-instruments. Doing so allows him to make smaller incisions and avoid using stitches – all of which results in a smoother surgery and recovery for you.


  1. Ease of placing the dental implant.
  2. The best aesthetic and functional results for tooth replacement.
  3. Smaller surgical incisions and openings due to advanced microsurgery techniques.
  4. An easier and faster recovery time with reduced pain and swelling, thanks to microsurgery techniques and incisions.
  5. Fewer risks of complications.

Because you’ll be having microsurgery performed at Dr. Kissel’s office, your dental implant 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 dental implant microsurgery.

Caring For Your Dental Implants

Caring for your dental implants is easy. You simply need to:


  1. Brush your teeth twice a day.
  2. Floss once daily.
  3. Visit your dentist for bi-annual checkups, even if you have a mouth full of dental implants.
  4.  Avoid smoking if you want your dental implants to be successful. Smoking can interfere with the jawbone’s ability to fuse with the dental implant, causing the implant to fail.

Generally, you want to maintain proper gum and jawbone health, and regular visits to your dentist can ensure that your oral health is doing great.
