Dental Implants

Tooth loss can affect the appearance of your smile and place you at risk of developing serious oral health issues.

Dental implants provided by Dr. Brian Hirschfield are an excellent tooth replacement solution with many benefits.

Why should you consider dental implants from our Lakeville, NY, practice?

Dental Implants Have Shown Outstanding Long-Term Success Rates 

Here is what you can expect during implant treatment at Lakeview Dental...

Dr. Hirschfield will place titanium implants directly in the bone to offer an incredibly durable foundation for your crown, bridge, or denture to replace one or more missing teeth.

No matter how compromised your smile may be, implants from our Lakeville, NY, practice can help...

Implants Can Also Stop Bone Recession

Without tooth roots to stimulate the jawbone, the bone begins to recede shortly after a tooth has fallen out. As the bone tissue recedes, it no longer provides the necessary support to surrounding natural teeth, which leads to further tooth loss. 

Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry solution designed to stop bone atrophy, keep your jaw healthy and strong, and maintain a full facial structure.

How Much do Dental Implants Cost?

A number of factors contribute to how much your dental implants will cost. Learn how our practice determines the cost of dental implants and how we can help make treatment more affordable. 

Invest in Your Health

While oral surgery can be expensive, the cost of receiving dental implants is justified by the benefits to your long-term health. Implants can stop bone recession, which in turn can prevent a host of other oral health problems, including gum disease and tooth loss. Undergoing this treatment at our Lakeville, NY, office can actually save you money on dental care over time.

Dental implant candidates should understand that both dental implants and premium restorations are usually considered elective procedures, and therefore insurance rarely contributes to their cost. Dr. Hirschfield's staff is glad to discuss financing options, such as Compassionate™ Finance, that can place implant treatment within your budget.

Dental Implant Timeline

This timeline will vary based on your unique dental needs, but in general, you can expect:

Dental implants provide support to dentures, bridges, and crowns to replace missing teeth and restore your oral health.
Dental implants provide support to dentures, bridges, and crowns to replace missing teeth and restore your oral health.


During your initial consultation at our Lakeville dental practice, your dentist will examine your mouth to determine if dental implants are the best treatment for you. Your dentist will then develop a custom treatment plan according to your needs.

Preparatory Treatment

If you need preparatory treatment such as tooth extraction, periodontal treatment, or bone grafting, this must be done to ensure a healthy foundation for your dental implants and restoration. 


Your dentist will take x-rays of your jaws to determine the optimal locations to place your implants.


Before implant placement, your dentist will numb the area. Our dentistry practice offers sedation dentistry upon request.

Implant Placement

To begin, small incisions are made in the gums. The titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone. 

Healing Period

Dental implants fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which typically takes three to six months. 

Abutment Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is attached to each implant. These connect your custom restoration to your implants. 

Restoration Placed

Once you are completely healed, you will have an appointment so your dentist can secure your custom crowns, bridges, or dentures to your implants. 
All that is left to do is enjoy your new smile. Have questions about the process?

My experience was great. I had a complex issue that needed to be addressed. Dr. Hirschfield did an unusually comprehensive analysis of my problem. He then presented multiple options for treatment. The pros and cons of each were addressed. There was absolutely no upselling. I believe he put my welfare above his profits. He established a lot of confidence in me, that we would make an optimum decision for my care. The results were excellent.

Implants Offer Long-lasting, Superior Results

Decades of research has proven that dental implants are the superior form of tooth restoration. After training at the world-renowned Misch International Implant Institute™, Dr. Hirschfield is equipped to handle any implant case at his office in Lakeville, NY.

Other Negative Effects of Tooth Loss

Besides leading to jawbone atrophy, losing even a single tooth can have a significant impact on your oral health and overall well-being in several other ways: 


When a tooth is lost, it leaves behind a gap in your bite. The surrounding natural teeth will eventually begin to shift, merging into this open space. This can cause your smile to become misaligned. This can not only cause excessive wear and misalignment of the jaw, but it can also detract from the appearance of your smile.


Tooth loss can take a toll on your self-esteem. It can cause your cheeks to appear hollow, drastically affecting your appearance. You may also experience difficulty enunciating, which can make you feel embarrassed.


Gaps in your smile or complete tooth loss can affect your ability to chew effectively. This may lead to substantial changes in your diet, including reduced consumption of fruits and vegetables. Over time, this can cause you to become malnourished and increase your risk of a variety of health issues.

A critical component of Dr. Hirschfield's approach to dentistry in Lakeville, NY, focuses on disease prevention. However, he also strives to provide the best possible solution to address these conditions once they have manifested.

How Implants Benefit Your Oral Health

As a holistic dentist, Dr. Hirschfield meticulously designs treatment plans to best serve your overall health. He highly recommends dental implants for qualifying patients as they have long been the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Implants are most often made of titanium, and they offer many health benefits, such as: 

  • Preservation of jawbone tissue
  • Restored dental function 
  • Protection of periodontal health

Additionally, dental implant treatment can be provided without altering the surrounding natural teeth, maintaining their natural strength and structure. 

Dental implants are a durable tooth replacement solution that can benefit many aspects of your health. 

During implant placement, we will create small incisions in your gums and place the devices directly into the jaw. Over the next three to six months, they will fuse with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. During the next visit to our dentistry practice, we can then attach your denture, crown, or bridge to your implants, restoring full form and function to your smile. Each restoration will look and function just like a natural tooth thanks to the support your dental implants provide.

The Prettau Bridge
A Premium Implant-Supported Restoration

The Prettau Bridge is widely regarded as the best dental implant restoration available today and is only offered by a relatively small number of qualified dental professionals, including Dr. Hirschfield of Lakeville, NY. The Prettau Bridge is a custom-crafted dental implant-supported restoration made of zirconia, offering exceptional strength and aesthetics. It is placed on a series of dental implants to replace the top, bottom, or both arches. This restoration carries an exceptionally low risk of chipping and other damage, making it a worthwhile investment in your smile, especially if you are planning full mouth reconstruction. Many patients who experience adverse or allergic reactions to metal have also found the metal-free Prettau Bridge to be their ideal solution.

Additionally, the Prettau Bridge is completely customizable to your tooth replacement needs and goals. It is custom-made to fit your jaw, but can also be colored specifically to complement your gums and provide the shade of white you prefer. You can expect your Prettau Bridge to look completely natural.

The Prettau Bridge is a tooth replacement solution that looks natural and is highly resistant to stains or damage.

Prettau Bridge Benefits

In addition to its cosmetic benefits, the Prettau Bridge can restore your ability to chew, enunciate, and smile with complete confidence. Meanwhile, cleaning your bridge is simple. Just brush and floss as you normally would. Unlike other denture options, Prettau Bridge does not stain or absorb odors.

The Prettau Bridge can be a life-changing alternative for patients currently wearing traditional dentures. Without dental implants, you will suffer atrophy (shrinkage) of the jaw. This is why traditional dentures must be frequently refitted to accommodate changes in jaw shape. The implant-supported Prettau Bridge, on the other hand, halts these changes. It allows you to stop worrying about your denture, and start enjoying delicious meals, long talks with friends, and smiling for family portraits.

Candidates for the Prettau Bridge

Patients with several cracked, damaged, or missing teeth and a desire to dramatically restore their smile are likely candidates for the Prettau Bridge. However, candidates must first be able to receive dental implants. Dental implants require sufficient bone density in the jaw, so if you have waited many years to address tooth loss, you may require a bone graft to create a suitable implant base.
