Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) January 12, 2014
Just in time to make for New Year’s resolutions, Doctor Scott G. Cohen of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry is announcing the expansion of the availability of dental implants in Winter Park, FL and the surrounding areas. Cohen’s practice believes that the dental implants procedure is an excellent alternative to some of the more traditional tooth replacement measures, such as dentures or fixed bridges.
Patients who are considering this procedure as part of a New Year’s resolution should be pleased to learn of Dr. Cohen’s announcement. Previously, the availability of dental implants in Winter Park, FL had been somewhat limited. Dr. Cohen’s expansion marks an increase in the opportunities and selection that prospective patients will have at their disposal.
Traditionally, tooth replacement procedures rely on measures that are becoming less and less effective with advancements in other methodologies, mainly due to technology and innovations in the field of dentistry. While they are still effective, these traditional procedures are now beginning to be known as less ideal, as they use the gums or adjacent teeth as a means of support, where the dental implants procedure fuses directly into the jawbone. The procedure is said to boast a decreased risk of complications when compared to the alternatives, including a decreased likelihood that complications will cause changes to the facial structure, something that is commonly associated with dentures due to resulting bone loss.
According to Dr. Cohen’s practice, 69 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have experienced the loss of a tooth as a result of gum disease, decay or injury. A little over a quarter of the population will have lost all of their teeth by the age of 74. The availability of an effective alternative for such a commonly occurring affliction seems to be incredibly important. For parties who are interested in receiving more information about dental implants in Winter Park, FL, Dr. Cohen is now accepting appointments for consultations regarding various aspects of the dental implants procedure.
