Inventor and Scientist “Andy Jakson” is bringing his Dental Miracle to the dental community. The Vice President of AvaDent and his team of engineers have revolutionized dental care and upended the tiring and uncomfortable process of being prepped for dentures. Jakson’s team has created the first-ever simple prep digital dentures in the world, updating, beautifying and refining a process that has not changed in 100 years.
“It feels like my own natural teeth. My new dentures make my smile look wonderful again,” said AvaDent patient, Adelle N. Smith.
The need to replace lost teeth has tormented people since the beginning of time. False teeth have been made out of human and other animal teeth since 700 B.C., and this technique was still popular until the mid 19th Century. The first modern looking dentures were made out of wood in Japan during the 16th Century, and they continued to be made that way until the beginning of the 20th Century. No, George Washington did not have a set of wooden dentures. Instead, during the 17th -18th centuries, dentures were made of gold, lead, ivory, human, and other animal teeth. The 19th century saw the invention of hard rubber dentures, and in the 20th century plastic dentures were invented. Now, in the 21st century, Buffalo, New York brings AvaDent to the world, a revolutionary new way to make youthful dentures.
"Dentistry in Buffalo is proud knowing that we are responsible for an advancement that increases the quality of health for our patients and it all started here," said geriatric dentist and advocate for the elderly, Craig McClure, D.D.S. “It is such a privilege to provide my patients with dentures that fit and keep them youthful.”
Medical research has long confirmed that dental health is connected to a prolonged, healthier, life, especially for older populations. At this time there are more Americans age 65 and older than at any other time in U.S. history. According to a new Census Bureau report, there were 40.3 million people age 65 and older on April 1, 2010, up 5.3 percent from 35 million in 2000.
"The world's first digital denture!" says Andy Jakson, AvaDent President, "It is expected that the senior citizen population will be rapidity growing, as well as, the need for dentures in the next decade as more baby boomers turned age 65."
With so much national focus on the rising costs of healthcare, Jakson’s AvaDent patented new product will contribute to improving individual quality of life, lowing the cost of dental care and totally redefining the denture business. Jakson commented, “This process is more bio-hygienic. Our process also reduces the buildup of bacteria helping to eliminate sore spots and “denture breath.”
“As a Prosthodontist, I am impressed with the never-before-possible functional and aesthetic controls I have with AvaDent. It’s truly revolutionary.” Ronald Jarvis, D.D.S., M.S.D., Amherst, NY.
