What Exactly Are

Dental Implants?

Dental implants can restore full function to your smile by providing unparalleled support for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures that replace a missing tooth or teeth.

The implant itself is a titanium fixture that is placed at the site of a missing tooth and is surgically embedded directly into the jaw. A dental implant acts as a replacement tooth root. Each implant is connected to an abutment that is then topped by your chosen dental restoration. 

Envision Your Implant

A dental implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone, where it will fuse with the surrounding tissue and provide unrivaled support for restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. 

Implants Are Popular and Long-Lasting

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports that 500,000 people in the United States receive dental implants each year. This solution is so popular because it provides many benefits and incredible longevity. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Find Out If Implants Are Right For You

Dr. McIntyre uses advanced technology to evaluate candidacy and carry out dentistry procedures. During your dental evaluation, he will utilize a cone beam computerized tomography (CT) tool to take a 3D image of your teeth, nerves, bone, and soft tissue. These high-definition images help Dr. McIntyre ensure that you have enough bone tissue to support an implant.

Our expert oral surgeon can also perform preparatory surgical procedures for patients who need to address oral health concerns before they can receive implants. For example, Dr. McIntyre can perform a bone grafting procedure to restore the jaw in preparation for implants. To have your candidacy evaluated and potentially enhanced, all you have to do is request your consultation

Paying for Dental Implants

There are many invaluable benefits to replacing a missing tooth or missing teeth with titanium dental implants. Here is some key information about affording this crucial solution for jaw health, oral function, and self-confidence issues:


Dental implants are unfortunately not covered by the vast majority of insurance plans. However, the crowns, bridges, and dentures they support are typically covered by insurance. 


To help Brooklyn, NY, patients afford implants, Dr. McIntyre accepts third-party financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit lets you pay for your procedure in convenient installments with little to no interest. 

The Dental Implant Procedure

Receiving dental implants can give you better dental form, function, and health for the rest of your life.

Relaxing Sedation

To ensure optimal comfort, Dr. McIntyre will administer a local anesthetic at the beginning of the procedure. In addition, patients may choose to receive sedation to help relax during the procedure.

Accurate Incisions

Our dentist will make a small incision in the gums at the site of the missing tooth to expose the jawbone.

Implant Placement

Dr. McIntyre will then carefully create a space for the implant to be placed. Our practice uses implants from high-quality brands, such as Straumann, MIS, and Zimmer. After the implants are inserted, he will close the incision with sutures. 

Important Integration

The next phase of the procedure is the healing phase and involves a process called osseointegration. Over a three to six-month period, your jawbone will fuse with the embedded dental implant. This creates a strong and stable base upon which implant restorations can be placed. 

Abutment Attachment

Once healing is complete, you will return to our Brooklyn practice for abutment attachment. Dr. McIntyre will create incisions in your gums to temporarily expose your new dental implants. He will then attach your abutments to the implants and suture your gums closed. 

Restoration Referral

Dr. McIntyre will refer you to a trusted prosthodontist who can provide your custom crown, bridge, or denture.

The Advantages of Implant Support

Dental implants provide the best support and stability for dental restorations. Let's take implant-supported dentures versus traditional dentures as an example. 

More Comfort

Implant-supported dentures fit better in your mouth than traditional dentures. Traditional dentures must be removed daily to let your gums rest, while implant-supported dentures are only removed at biannual dental appointments. 

No Slippage

A common complaint with traditional dentures is that they slip out of place, causing difficulties with chewing and speaking. The sturdy foundation of dental implants means your dentures will never slip.
