For Those with Missing Teeth, Dental Implants May Be the Solution

Manhattan-based periodontist, Dr. Hiroshi New York City Periodontist Kimura, DMD, PLLC, says that dental implants can restore a patient’s confidence, health, and well being.

Online PR News – 04-September-2009 – New York, New York – According to renowned New York periodontist, Dr. Hiroshi Kimura, DMD, PLLC, (, a leading expert in dental cosmetic procedures and the treatment of oral pathology, dental implants are the perfect solution for anyone with missing or damaged teeth to regain control of the lives.

“Dental implants are changing the way people live,” says Dr. Kimura who, for more than a decade, has been serving patients throughout the tri-state area at his private practice, Periodontics and Dental Implants New York (PDINY). “Through dental implants, people regain the comfort and the confidence to eat, speak, smile, and ultimately enjoy life.”

As a renowned expert in the field of periodontics, Dr. Kimura has received extensive training in Implantology and has been successfully placing dental implants for more than a decade. Through continuing education, he follows the most current trends in implant dentistry.

Dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone, are metal anchors that act as tooth root substitutes. Small posts are attached to each implant providing stable anchors in the gums for replacement teeth.

So, how does a dental implant procedure work?

According to Dr Kimura, once a patient has decided to explore implantation, most periodontists will ask that patient to undergo a dental or radiographic examination and a dental health history. Through this series of consultation visits, the doctor will address a patient’s specific needs.

Once the patient and doctor have chosen the correct course of action, Dr. Kimura says that most patients will have to undergo two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within the jawbone. Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second surgical phase begins and the periodontist will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar.

“After about two weeks, your general dentist will be start making your new teeth and then connect them to the implants,” says Dr. Kimura. “The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months, but most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.”
