Alpharetta Dental: The future of Implant Dentistry is here now.

Implant dentist near me

Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their alternatives such as bridges, partials and dentures.  And from an aesthetic standpoint, they look and feel more natural, due to the advances made in their bio-compatible development.

Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth and continued bone loss. Additionally, implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness. So while a single implant may serve to support a dental crown replacing a single missing tooth, they can also be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, and can be used with complete dentures.

Procedural advancements mean that a larger population than ever before are finding themselves candidates for dental implants.  While application and candidacy for implantation varies on a case by case basis, our team needs to determine the viability of implants as it applies to your actual bone structure.   Keep in mind, while a general dentist may perform the crown and bridge placement that is associated with implant restorations, prosthodontists are the ADA sanctioned specialists who have received post-doctorate training are your best bet for the successful completion of this type of technique sensitive procedure.  If we can ever be of help please don’t hesitate to call or contact us so we can answer your questions.

Dentist Alpharetta: Crohn’s Disease

CrohnsStem cells found in gum tissue may fight inflammatory disease, which would be great news for IBD patients.[1]  Apparently, they have a much less inflammatory reaction and heal much faster when compared to skin stem cells.  When stem cells from the gum tissue were transplanted into mice with dextrate sulfate sodium-induced colitis — an inflamed condition of the colon — the inflammation was significantly reduced.[2]  These stem cells have the ability to develop into different types of cells as well as affect the immune system, which poses wonderful hope for patients with Crohn’s disease.

In the meantime, research on the relationship between IBD and stem cells is still ongoing.  If we can be of assistance, give us a call.

Dentist Alpharetta: We need more BIGGEST LOSERS!!

Overweight woman buttoning up her jeans. Image shot 2010. Exact date unknown.Think twice before taking that next bite.  Because we know that being overweight can affect many aspects of a person’s health.  Now researchers suspect a link exists between obesity and gum disease.  Whether one condition is a risk factor for another or whether one disease directly causes another has yet to be discovered.[1]

What we do know is half of the U.S. population age 30 and older is affected by gum disease — a chronic inflammatory infection that impacts the surrounding and supporting structures of the teeth.[2] Gum disease itself produces its own set of cytokines, which further increases the level of these inflammatory proteins in the body’s bloodstream, helping to set off a chain reaction of other inflammatory diseases throughout the body.[3]  So it is important to visit a dentist at least twice a year so he or she can evaluate your risks for developing gum disease and offer preventive strategies.

Impacting approximately one-third of the U.S. population, obesity has become a significant health concern for Americans.  As a part of your strategy to stay healthy, a dentist can design a personalized program of home oral care to meet your specific needs.  In the meantime, research on the relationship between obesity and gum disease is still ongoing.

Alpharetta Dentist: Oral Health in an Aging Population

Aging Patients
Our elderly patients require special expertise to be treated.

More and more, oral health care is playing a greater role in maintaining our aging population.  It has become vital to older patients as it relates to their overall global health.  Oral conditions affected 3.9 billion people, and untreated caries in permanent teeth was the most prevalent condition evaluated for the entire Global Burden of Disease 2010 Study (global prevalence of 35% for all ages combined).[1] Oral conditions combined accounted for 15 million disability-adjusted life-years (DisabilityALYs) globally, implying an average health loss of 224 years per 100,000 population.[2]

DisabilityALYs due to oral conditions increased 20.8% between 1990 and 2010, mainly due to population growth and aging.[3]  By 2015, the US population is expected to increase to 312 million (3.08 million in 2010) and 14.7% of the population will be aged 65 years or older.  While effective preventive measures exist for younger populations (water fluoridation, dental sealants and parents), no preventive measures have been devised to address the expected increase in oral health needs of the aging population.

IADR President Helen Whelton from the University of Cork, Ireland, elaborated, “The fact that a preventable oral disease is the most prevalent of all 291 diseases and injuries examined in the GBD 2010 is quite sobering and should cause all of us to redouble our efforts to raise awareness of the importance of oral health to policymakers.” The dental profession has an opportunity to take a leadership role in the delivery of health care services to the seniors who have contributed so vitally to our society’s well-being and who deserve to be treated with the best oral health care we have to offer.  This can only be accomplished with a better educated population.  Dr. Scheinfeld is a prosthodontist specializing in geriatric care.  The Right Smile Team, including in-house periodontics is designed to treat our aging population.

Call for an evaluation of your oral health care needs.

Dentist Alpharetta: Marketing of Products or Procedures

products
There are an abundance of dental products out there.

At Scheinfelds, Orland and Tourial we take a consultative approach to ensuring each patient’s program aligns with their operating culture and unique risk exposures. This means we don’t push products.  Nor do we try and sell you anything.  Instead, we work closely with you and your needs to develop and deliver the right solution, even if that means doing no dentistry at all.

The dentists who engage in the marketing or sale of products or procedures to their patients must take care not to exploit the inherent trust in the dentist-patient relationship for their own financial gain.  We take this very seriously.  Dentists should not induce their patients to purchase products or undergo procedures by misrepresenting the product’s value, the necessity of the procedure or the dentist’s professional expertise in recommending the product or procedure.

Particularly in the case of health related products, it is not enough for the dentist to rely on the manufacturer’s or distributor’s representations about the product’s safety and efficacy.  Rather, the dentist has an independent obligation to inquire into the truth and accuracy of such claims and verify that they are founded on accepted scientific knowledge or research.  For instance, we have discussed in earlier writings that there is no scientific evidence of cause and effect as it relates to mercury fillings and your health.  So it would be improper and unethical to recommend the removal of amalgams based on a dentist’s professional expertise.

Dentists should disclose to their patients all relevant information the patient needs to make an informed purchase decision.  From the beginning, Scheinfelds, Orland and Tourial built its foundation on basic operating principles – integrity, honesty and quality health care. These are not just words to us, rather truths that can be validated by the patient relationships we have held for over 25 years. To us, it’s simple. We base decisions on what we believe to be in the best interests of our patients and our employees. We understand that each puts a great deal of trust in us, and we do not take that trust lightly.  Our culture is unlike any in the industry.

Dentist Alpharetta: How Much does a Dental Crown Cost?

Dentist near meDental crowns cost anywhere between $900.00 and $1600.00 each depending on the tooth to being restored. In addition, the cost varies depending on materials, complexity and the dentist’s training and experience and to some degree the location of the practice.  Insurance may pay part of a crown’s cost if it’s obviously needed for medical reasons, but usually crowns are covered only on a limited basis per year.  Depending on the customers’ needs and wishes, partial and full crowns made of various materials may be utilized.  Crowns are made of gold, porcelain, resin or porcelain-fused-metal.  The crown covers the entire surface of a tooth, adding strength, durability and stability. This usually requires two office visits; first to prepare the tooth, make an impression and install a temporary crown. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory or manufactured in-house with the use of a CAD aided milling machine to create the permanent crown, which is installed during the second appointment.

There’s often an initial office visit ($65-$102) and X-rays ($85-$135).  One must not forget that there are additional costs that contribute to the overall price involved in crowns which are beyond the patient’s control.  A large share of undervalued costs goes toward the treatment itself, lab and production costs for the crown, aftercare and the like.

With proper care a crown may last 10 or more years.  Depending upon the general wear and tear, it could last indefinitely.  With somewhere between 10 and indefinitely, the investment becomes rather modest, if not inexpensive.

If we can be of service or answer any of your questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
