Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC, enjoys helping his patients replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many patients find that implants are a long-term solution to this problem. While the dental implant cost can be a concern, it is reasonable when one considers that implants are very durable and long-lasting with a high chance of never needing to be replaced.
Farmington Hills residents are able to take advantage of Dr. Roman Shlafer's expertise in the area of dental implants. He has performed the procedure many times and has helped patients who have teeth that are missing. Whether a single tooth is no longer in place or there are multiple teeth that are missing, Dr. Shlafer can make the replacement using implants. This can help stop the problem of bone disintegration. If a tooth has been missing for a period of time, the bone may no longer support an implant and bone grafting may be necessary prior to the patient receiving an implant.
Dental implants are made up of three separate pieces. The implant that is surgically implanted in the jaw is made of titanium, which can fuse with the bone. On top of that the abutment is connected, which is specially designed so that the crown can attach to it. The crown is shaped like a natural tooth and is specially colored to match the adjacent teeth. Once the implants are in place, they act and feel very much like natural teeth. A person can eat easier and most people would not be able to tell that the tooth is not natural.
Dr. Shlafer meets with patients individually to determine whether they are good candidates for dental implants and to discuss the dental implant cost. Some insurance companies pay a portion of the dental implant cost, so it is good to check that source to know whether or not there is coverage. Dr. Shlafer and his staff work with patients to discover a feasible payment option. To learn more about dental implants visit detroitgumsurgery.com.
