Dr. Shlom is awesome!! He always writes a personal “thank you” note after my treatments & the office staff are professional & friendly…P.S. –the mint-scented gas masks are the best!
If you are missing teeth, dentures aren’t your only option. Dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods, restore your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem. At Waterford Family Dental Care, we are educated and experienced in the latest implant technology so you can smile again with confidence.
Implants are permanent structures that replace the roots of lost teeth. If your dentist determines that you are a candidate for dental implants, you will be referred to an oral surgeon. Your surgeon will place the implants under the gums, then over a three to six month period, the bones grow around and adapt to the implants as they would with natural roots. Once the implants are secure and the surrounding tissue is strong, they are ready to support a crown or restored tooth. You will return to your dentist for the finished product: “new” teeth that are almost indistinguishable from a patient’s original teeth.
If the implant site lacks the bone volume to support the implant, you will likely need a bone graft. Normally, a pre-surgery x-ray can determine if you will need a bone graft, but in some cases it is not discovered until the implant site is opened during surgery. Bone grafts are safe and effective, and once the graft is placed, it will help replace missing bone, stimulate bone formation, and increase bone volume.
Not only do our dental implant patients experience the benefits of new and permanent teeth, they feel a renewed confidence and improved quality of life, as well. To determine your candidacy for implants, we will thoroughly examine your existing teeth, bones, upper and lower jaws, and gum tissue. Contact us for more information about Dental Implants.

Dr. Shlom and the staff are very patient and knowledgeable. He was extremely patient, calming and quick with my nervous son’s tooth extraction. I love the atmosphere and the care that my child receives here.Lynell McKay Doyle
Honestly the best dentist around i have seen all 3. Although you may have to wait it is well worth the time spent! They have helped me over come so many fears and helped me get back on track with a healthy oral lifestyle! Love each and every one of the staff!Chelsea Stothers
I got some work done on Monday. First time visit. I was not expecting to get the work done that day at all! Dr. Shlom and his team were great! I got my mail today and received a hand written letter from Dr. Shlom saying I did great and hoped I wasn’t in too much pain. Also if I needed anything to give him a call. Let’s just say he now has my husband and I as clients for life!Heidi Tottingham
I was terrified about all the Root Canal stories. As mine was going on, the Doc stopped & I asked how much longer (waiting for this so called pain) & he said “We are done”! I was amazed. They worked with me on payments, are always friendly but unfortunately, I have moved out of the area & have NOT got my teeth cleaned & will not do so until I can get to this place…….I have had to many issues in my life with Dentists & now I found a GOOD one, I will wait! Thank you all & hope to see you soon. S.K.Shawn Bird-Kowalske
Great dental office, have been going there for years. My wife has gone there since she was little and now our kids (8 and 6) go as well. And they have no fear of going to this office.Terrence Williams
