Did you know that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay, and by the age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth. Twenty years ago, there were no other option besides a fixed bridge or removable denture to restore a beautiful smile. Fixed bridges and removable dentures can also bring number of other problems. Dentures can slip, make embarrassing clicking sounds while eating or speaking, they can also lead to bone loss in the area where the teeth are missing. Fixed bridges are hard to clean between the teeth which can cause decay and periodontal (gum) disease.
These are just a few reasons Dr. Sherzoy prefers Dental Implants as tooth replacement versus dentures because they look and feel more natural, do not slip or slide out of place, and do not have to be removed to be cleaned. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), dental implants are the ideal option to replacing aging bridges and messy dentures.
Dr. Sherzoy agrees, “ Older bridges cannot preserve dental health. They are difficult to clean and require replacement with newer bridges. Instead of replacing bridges or dentures, I recommend all my patients that they switch to implants. Implants can easily be cared for, do not decay and function just as well as natural teeth”, said Dr. Sherzoy.
The best way to describe a dental implant is to compare it to a real tooth. A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. When you lose a tooth you lose both the root and the crown. You need a dental implant which is basically a new root to replace both the root and the crown. Teaneck patients come to Dr. Sherzoy for affordable prices to receive the smile they deserve. “At Bogota Dental Center, we also offer easy financing options such as CareCredit, this helps most of my patients make there dream smile a reality “ says Dr. Sherzoy.
