Dental Implants (Single & Multiple Tooth Replacement)

Carolina Bermudez from the Z100 Elvis Duran and the Morning Show was sedated with nitrous oxide to have a tooth removed and the extraction socket grafted with a Straumann bone graft. After waiting four months for the grafted extraction site to mature, Dr. Edward Gottesman replaced the tooth with a BIOMET 3i dental implant.

If ever there were a Gold Standard in dentistry, the honor would be awarded to the dental implant. Since the implant gained widespread acclaim more than 30 years ago, it has garnered unprecedented success both clinically and commercially.

Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, implant dentistry is typically the very best solution for tooth replacement. Implants also provide a welcome alternative for patients who may be facing the loss of a badly damaged tooth. There’s no alternative that more closely resembles your natural teeth, is more universally accepted, and more likely to improve your overall health.

The dental implant consists of an artificial tooth root that will become integrated with the jawbone soon after it is placed. The implant is created from specially constructed titanium, a material that has been proven to be highly compatible with the human body.

Once the artificial tooth root is restored with a dental crown, the new tooth can comfortably absorb the forces of biting and chewing. To those around you, your new tooth will look completely natural. As you function daily, you’ll enjoy eating the foods that you want and you’ll love smiling with confidence.

In addition to great esthetics and comfort, there are less visible advantages that make implants the right choice in the opinions of Dr. Karabin and Dr. Gottesman. As periodontal specialists, we understand the way that implants can help to prevent bone loss as well as provide tremendous, unwavering support for the neighboring teeth.

In the PerioNYC office, our team continues to stay abreast of the most recent developments in implant dentistry. This foundation of continuing education and research supports our commitment to provide you with the most advanced care that is perfect for you.

Dr. Karabin is quite simply the consummate professional. Expert knowledge, wonderful communicator, always see you promptly on time (I mean every single time in all those 20 years!!). Dr. Karabin has done implants for me, as well as some difficult extractions and gum surgeries. Every procedure has been done in the time described, with very very little discomfort and with complete success. I have never had better care and treatment from any health care provider.


I had one implant, gum surgery, a couple of teeth pulled and now periodontal maintenance. I now no longer have gum problems and my implant looks and feels like it is a regular tooth. The procedures were rather painless. Dr. Karabin was professional as well as caring, and I feel she did a wonderful job.


I recently went to Dr. Gottesman for implant surgery. My experience with him and his office — from start to finish — was wonderful.
