Dental Implants

Any licensed dentist can perform implant surgery, however many dentists are unqualified and lack experience with this procedure.Dr. Joseph Zelig is a board-certified periodontist with extensive training and expertise in complex dental implant surgery which can help to ensure a painless process and a superb outcome.

Missing permanent teeth can be embarrassing, but it no longer has to deter you from showing off your smile while walking the streets of New York. Dental implants are small posts placed beneath the gum to work as the roots of missing teeth. A crown, or artificial tooth, is then fitted to match your teeth and mouth and improve your smile. An implant can replace one tooth or multiple teeth for a full, healthy smile that looks and feels natural.


At Smile in the City, our periodontists specialize in dental implants. View before and after photos of actual patients to appreciate the aesthetic difference we were able to achieve through implants and cosmetic work.

When you meet our dental experts, they will discuss with you the surgical procedures, administer a comprehensive dental exam and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Depending on your specific condition, our New York implant specialist work with you to develop a treatment plan that best fits your needs. For patients who suffer from dental anxiety or are nervous about dental surgery, our office also offers various sedation methods to ensure your dental procedure is relaxing and painless.


Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. If you have an existing medical or dental condition that prevents you from getting dental implants, our Smile in the City team will work with you to find a treatment that will achieve your dental goals. In general, factors that determine a good dental implant candidate include:

- You are missing one or more teeth
- Your jaw bone has reached its full growth
- You want to improve your mouth’s function and speech
- You cannot or will not wear dentures
- Your oral tissues are healthy
- You do not have any health conditions that might affect the bone’s healing process

Before coming to Smile in the City I had a removable flipper to replace my missing front teeth. I didn't want a conventional bridge because I didn't want to grind-down my adjacent teeth. Dr. Schmidt did an amazing job in matching the color and shape of my natural teeth. Now I can smile and eat with confidence, and I don't have to walk around with a removable denture. - Carla
