Our Cost-Effective Implant Solutions
Missing teeth can have damaging effects on not only your self-esteem, but your ability to eat and speak as well. If left untreated, tooth loss can result in more serious problems like bone loss or an oral infection.
Fortunately, Dr. Stanislaus can use dental implants to restore your smile and preserve your overall health. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or an entire arch, we have a solution for you.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a long-lasting, comfortable solution to restore missing or damaged teeth. They’re crafted to seamlessly blend in with your smile, and they function just like your natural teeth. With dental implants, Dr. Stanislaus can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
This durable restoration option replaces missing teeth from the root to the crown. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant attachment takes the place of your natural root to secure the restoration. This is also when the implant fuses with your jawbone, creating a durable foundation for the new prosthetic tooth.
Dental implants offer a number of benefits, such as:
- Enhances the appearance of your smile
- Restores healthy jawbone density
- Increases comfort and convenience
- Improves your ability to chew with ease
The Implant Process
In just a few short appointments, Dr. Stanislaus will determine the best solution for your unique needs and develop a treatment plan. The dental implant process is broken down into a few steps:
- Your initial consultation with Dr. Stanislaus is the first step in restoring your smile. He’ll talk to you about your smile goals and recommend the treatment that’s right for you.
- We’ll create an 3D impression of your mouth so Dr. Stanislaus has greater visibility for placing your new tooth restoration.
- Your fixture will be placed through a small incision in your gum line. We’ll insert the titanium fixture, suture the incision, and cover it with a functional, temporary prosthetic.
- After the area has healed, we’ll attach a small piece called an abutment to your titanium fixture piece.
- Dr. Stanislaus will then craft your new tooth to match the shape, color, and texture of your natural teeth.
- The last step is to attach a beautiful porcelain crown to your abutment piece. Once this is complete, you’ll be able to show off your new smile with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can dental implants help me?
If you have one or more missing or damaged teeth, you can benefit from this incredible restoration solution. Implants are crafted to look and feel just like your natural teeth, and eliminate the hassles of dentures or other removable tooth replacements.
How long do dental implants last?
With good oral care and regular check-ups, dental implants have the capacity to be a life-long replacement solution. However, your crown or denture may need to be adjusted or replaced within 5 to 15 years after placement.
How long is the dental implant process?
Each treatment is customized to patients’ individual needs, meaning that treatment time will vary from person to person. Usually, the dental implant process is completed in a series of appointments over several months.
Is it painful to get dental implants?
Your comfort is our priority. That’s why we offer dental sedation to help you relax and remain comfortable during your dental implant procedure.
Some swelling and discomfort are common during the healing process. Dr. Stanislaus will prescribe medication to help ease any pain you may experience in the days following your dental implant procedure.
Are dental implants safe?
Yes, dental implants are completely safe. They’re made of biocompatible titanium and porcelain, which is commonly used in dental restorations. As with any surgery, there is a possibility of infection, but Dr. Stanislaus will closely monitor your oral health during your check-ups.
How much do dental implants cost?
Since each treatment is customized, the cost of each procedure varies. The best way to determine the cost of your treatment is to schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Stanislaus at our Brooklyn office.

I have more than one missing tooth. Can dental implants help me?

I have dentures. Can I still get dental implants?
I have gum disease. Am I a candidate for dental implants?
