Dental Implants Columbus Circle

Replacement Teeth Midtown Manhattan

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Evaluation for Dental Implants

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Drs. Curatola and Zagami or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. Drs. Curatola and Zagami can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

Our Latest Patient Review

I was congenitally missing the teeth next to my front teeth (lateral incisors ??) and was tired of the awkward bridges in the front. As a young professional I felt embarrassed by my smile. Dr. Zagami , listened and addressed my concerns with a treatment plan that involved implants, crowns, and bleaching, which was much more conservative than a previous dentist! Also their lab technician even came chair side to create a custom shade that led to the most beautiful result ! It was a big commitment for a young person, but the nurturing and professional environment of their practice made my whole experience a winner from start to finish !

Our Latest Patient Review

I've been a patient since moving to NYC in 1996. As someone who has needed EXTENSIVE dental work over the last 20 years, I can say all my procedures have been painless, easy and done with exceptional results. My formerly embarrassing smile is now bright and beautiful! Whatever you need - implants, root canals, Invisalign...Drs. Curatola and Zagami are simply the best.

Came here many years ago. Moved out of the city and came back . Nobody better? I have a low tolerance for pain so this has been a place that I have never suffered or being afraid of any procedure. I can't not imagine better trained and top class doctors than here's. Up to date in all procedures.
