Dental Implants

Dental implants have revolutionized the way missing teeth can be replaced. Since the 1980s, implant dentists have used them to provide a strong foundation for a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dr. Natasha Kapoor is a board-certified periodontist highly skilled in dental implant placement. Call today to schedule a consultation and find out if a dental implant is the right option for you.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed into the jawbone where the tooth roots used to be. It mimics the functionality of the tooth roots, helping to keep the jawbone and the surrounding teeth from shifting. It can be topped by a custom-made crown that matches the exact shape and shade of your natural teeth, or can support a bridge or denture.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants provide the strongest foundation for a replacement tooth or series of teeth. When a tooth is missing, the bone that used to hold the tooth in place begins to resorb (deteriorate). A dental implant is the only tooth replacement technique that preserves the bone. Both dental bridges and dentures only sit on top of the gum line; they don’t prevent bone disintegration.

Additional benefits of dental implants include:

  • looking and feeling like a natural tooth
  • retaining the natural shape of the jaw and teeth alignment
  • providing strength and stability
  • restoring the ability to eat favorite foods (even steak!)
  • improving speech
  • providing a long-term solution

Dental implants are frequently called the next-best thing to natural teeth.

What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?

As denture-wearers know, a traditional denture can slip and slide in the mouth. Plus, the plastic that sits on the roof of the mouth can interfere with your ability to enjoy dining. Dental implants keep a denture or bridge anchored in one place, making it easier to talk and eat. The prosthesis can be secured with as few as two implants, although it’s more typical to use four implants. READ MORE

What Is a Same-Day Implant?

Modern technology has made it easier than ever to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. Depending on your particular needs, it may be possible to extract a tooth and place a dental implant all in one day. In some cases, our team can also provide a temporary crown on the same day as the dental implant is placed.

Dr. Marcus made my daughter’s root canal experience one that she will remember in a positive way. In fact, she laughed and smiled through the experience instead of having the fear that she usually has. Not only was Dr. Marcus amazing but his staff was as well. They spent an extra hour helping me through an insurance issue! I highly recommend using Dr. Marcus for your child or yourself!!

I’ve had root canal treatments from three different endodontists, two of them being the main ones in Huntington. I know for sure that Dr. Marcus is by far your best choice. His office is very nice and comfortable and his front desk staff members are very nice. There’s a keurig coffee maker in the waiting room so I always have a nice cup of coffee while I’m waiting. He runs very close to on t…

Dr. Marcus answered an emergency call I placed to my own dentist. He was on-call for the week-end and he took care of my problem in a kind and efficient manner. Thank you Dr. Marcus for being such a caring professional!❤️

This is a wonderful office. Dr Marcus got to the root (just a small pun intended!) of two problems in the summer of 2015. He is an amazing endodontist and did everything he could to make me a pain free person.

Could not say enough about how professional both Dr. Marcus and his staff are. I had a pretty painful tooth issue that my normal dentist immediately assessed would need a root canal back in April. I quickly made an appointment with Dr. Marcus. I was treated amazingly by both the staff setting me up, the assistant in the room helping Dr . Marcus and most importantly, the skill and compassion from D…

Dr. Marcus patiently waited over an hour for me to get numb and took care of a badly infected tooth that had me in misery for three days. The pain is gone now and I have my tooth. Thanks a million, Dr. Marcus, to you and your staff!

Dr. Marcus is amazing! When I needed emergency root canal over the Christmas holiday, he not only made sure to get me on the calendar immediately, but treated me as if I was one of his own patients. I live in Philadelphia and was told by my local dentist that I was SOL as they were closed for the holiday (without coverage). I’d tried calling several other oral surgeons, but none of them would se…

I have been a patient of Rick Marcus for a number of years and have always found him to be outstanding. He works practically without any discomfort with root canals and is always using the latest proven techniques. He is highly skilled and has a perfect touch. Today I had a periodontal cleaning with a new hygienist named Julie and that too was an excellent experience. This is an office that consis…
