Meet Dr. Joseph Maniscalco
Reviving the personal touch while embracing innovation
Dr. Joe Maniscalco is a licensed prosthodontist, a specialist in cosmetic, implant and reconstructive dentistry. But he also has wide experience as a family dentist, providing essential services such as fillings and regular maintenance.
Although traditional in our approach toward serving patients, our practice is up to the minute with technology and methodology. Dr. Maniscalco follows a better model in today’s medicine: He looks for the source of the problem, not just the symptoms. Our team presents a comprehensive solution that ensures the condition will not recur. This approach enabled Dr. Maniscalco to discover a pre-cancerous lesion in the mouth of one patient, most likely saving that patient from a serious health situation.
The tradition we do seek to preserve is the personal touch in patient care. Dr. Maniscalco is determined to revive a model of service that is going by the wayside. He believes listening to patients is as important as using the latest technology.

Z-Systems Ceramic Implants
Exclusively in Brooklyn from Dr. Joseph Maniscalco
The Only FDA Approved 100 % Metal Free Implants, Superior to Titanium Implants in Many Areas:
Bones and gums integrate better with zirconium oxide ceramics.
Z-SYSTEMS implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.
Less plaque accretion than on titanium. This reduces the risk of perimplantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
Ceramic is much stronger than titanium.
Thanks to the white material, no gray shadows are visible even with thin or receding gums.
Ceramic implants are opaque to X-rays, and easier to recognize in critical situations.
What Is A Dental Implant?
The implant body or post is the portion of the implant that is inserted into the jawbone. The implant body integrates with the jawbone and becomes the anchor for the new tooth.
The implant abutment is the portion of the dental implant inside the crown. Sometimes the abutment is created with the implant body as one piece. Other times, it is separate and attached to the implant with a screw. The abutment shapes the gum tissue and supports the crown.
The dental implant crown is the portion of the dental implant you see, but if done correctly, no one can tell it is not a natural tooth. The crown is bonded or cemented to the implant abutment and is commonly made of a ceramic or zirconia material because of its naturally white color and strength.
