Tooth loss can affect many areas of your daily life, from your ability to eat to your willingness to smile.
For the right candidates, dental implants are the best solution for replacing missing or severely damaged teeth.
Brooklyn, NY's Dr. John S. McIntyre has over 40 years of experience providing dental implants using cutting-edge techniques.
What Exactly Are
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
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
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.
The Advantages of Implant Support
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.
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.
