Can anyone recommend a good periodontist in NYC? Do I even need a periodontist?

Need implant or partial bridge apparently after non-awesome news that root canal tooth is now loose and needs to be extracted. I am scared and unhappy...terrified of both the procedure and the cost. (Have insurance but still quoted approx $1500 out of pocket). Also, I'm terrified of going to an unqualified/non-expert doctor and making this problem even worse. Please help me with your recommendations and uplifting tales of tooth extractions that magically were reversed....ok, no, be honest, let me know if you can recommend someone reliable to do the procedure and maybe...tell me it's not going to be that bad??!
Also, I saw this
but can't read surgical details yet...can't handle it. And I'm really more looking for personal recommendations for dentists/oral surgeons. I have the name Dr.Kessler in Williamsburg, is anyone familiar with him?
Dentist mentioned might have to get tooth extracted and walk around with gap for up to 6 months while it heals before implant tooth is put in- can this be true? Will I really be toothless AND minus 2k??? Ok, read details on this, looks like time varies.
