Benefits of Dental Implants


Missing teeth are often embarrassing and you may also have difficulty eating and speaking. In the past, options for missing teeth included dentures or fixed bridges. Dental implants are a new solution with better long-term results. Not only do they look natural, they feel and act natural too. Because dental implants are fused with your jawbone, they can function like your real teeth do, making everyday activities such as eating and speaking simpler. They can be used to replace any number of your missing teeth from one, to all.

Almost anyone with missing teeth can be a candidate for Dental implants. If you are able to receive regular dental work, there is a good chance you can receive dental implants. You will, of course, require a consultation before any action can be taken. During the consultation, we will evaluate your teeth and mouth to determine the best possible course of action. Dental implants are an option for most people, even cancer patients; however, there are few small groups who may not benefit from having dental implants:

Patients with existing dental work

Discuss any medications you are taking or any conditions you are suffering from. Diseases such as hemophilia may put you at risk.

Patients with gum disease

Gum disease can affect the success of your implant. You will probably need to undergo treatment before we can discuss dental implants.

Heavy smokers

Smoking can affect the health of your gums as well as the post-operative healing process.

A good candidate for dental implants is someone who has healthy gums and does not suffer from significant bone loss. Good oral hygiene is required to maintain the health of your implants and surrounding teeth.

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
