Experienced dentist, Dr. Roman Shlafer, expanded his practice to include dental implants, which serve as long-term replacements for lost teeth. Now, people of all ages can improve their smile without big changes in lifestyle and with very little risk of bone loss. The reasonable denture implant cost offered by Dr. Shlafer allows patients to make an investment that saves them money long-term.
Research shows that 69 percent of adults have lost at least one tooth due to accidents or gum disease by the time they are 44. Even more surprising, 26 percent of adults have no teeth remaining by the time they are 74. One of the biggest risks associated with tooth loss is the natural bone loss or erosion that occurs in the underlying area. In the time following surgical insertion, dental implants fuse directly to the bone, becoming much like natural teeth in function and appearance while providing the same stability as the original tooth. While bridges and dentures still remain common and acceptable dental treatments, studies show that implants often last much longer and afford a number of important benefits that are unparalleled by other options.
During treatment, the dentist begins by surgically implanting the titanium implant into the jawbone. This piece forms the first of three distinct parts that make up the complete tooth replacement. The abutment fits into the implant and protrudes slightly. The crown attaches to the abutment. Designed as a replica of the natural tooth, the crown blends in with the surrounding teeth in color, size and shape.
Many patients who have previously had dentures and switched to implants talk about a stark difference in their quality of life. Implants look and feel like natural teeth and allow people to eat and perform other regular activities without a change in practice.
