Single-Tooth Implants


In the past, the only solution for a single missing tooth was to have a dental bridge; however, this technology was not without complications. A dental bridge will often damage your healthy teeth while simultaneously allowing for bone deterioration. These complications have led the dental bridge to become a less desirable option. Dental implants have become the preferred solution for a single missing tooth.

Many people choose implants to replace a single-tooth or several teeth or to support a full set of dentures. Implants are posts surgically placed into your upper or lower jawbone. They replace the root of one or more of your missing teeth. For multiple, consecutive missing teeth, we can use an implant-supported bridge. An implant-supported bridge is similar to a normal dental bridge except that it is held in place by dental implants rather than your natural teeth. This has several benefits. For one, there is no harm done to your healthy teeth. In addition, stimulation is provided to your jawbone, so there is no risk of deterioration.

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."
