The Causes of Tooth Loss
Dental implants are a means to a brand-new smile and a brand-new way of life. What do we mean when we say, “a brand-new way of life?” Patients who are in need of dental implants have lost one or more of their teeth due to a variety of possible factors. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to:
- poor oral hygiene
- poor dental care
- Periodontal Disease
- gum disease
- cavities, etc.
The Effects of Tooth Loss
Here at Advanced Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we understand that the loss of one or more teeth can impact more than just a person’s self-esteem. Tooth loss can also effect a person’s daily life, as it alters the way they eat and speak. In addition, patients who are missing most of their teeth experience changes in the physical appearance of their face. The facial muscles begin to sag, creating a caved and sunken look. With that being said, dental implants offer hope and a means to the normalcy that the patient once experienced with their full set of teeth.
Tooth Loss Solution
When it comes to working towards a solution, it is extremely important that each patient is made fully aware of their options and educated on what each option entails. At Advanced Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we ensure that each of our patients go forth with an option they understand and stand by in terms of what they most desire for themselves.
All-On-Four: Dental Implant Option
The All-On-Four procedure is a commonly desired treatment method for many patients because of it’s plethora of advantages.
Computer Guided. For each All-On-Four procedure, we utilize the latest computer guided, 3-D technology to create the perfect set of teeth. They are specifically designed for each patient’s mouth.
Same-day Replacement. Thanks to this technology, the patient is able to leave our office with their new teeth on the same day they come in. This same-day replacement aspect is just one perk about the All-On-Four procedure.
Minimal Implants. In the past, up to 10 implants were necessary to provide enough strength for a fixed bridge to withhold permanently in the mouth. With the All-On-Four, only 4 implants placed at an angle are guaranteed to provide the patients with a strong, stable, and durable new smile.
Metal-Free All On Four
Now that you understand what an All-On-Four procedure entails, we would like to educate you on the implants themselves. More often now than ever before, patients are inquiring about what material their implants are made of. Being that the four implants are permanently inserted inside the gums and into the jaw bone, we understand the need to know.
There are titanium (metal) and Zirconia (non-metal) implants. We are sure educate our patients about metal-free implants, being that they are the most natural and holistic implant type. They are hypoallergenic, durable, and take nicely to the surrounding bone. They allow for quicker healing and provide a more aesthetic look as the white color of the implant eliminates the possibility of a metal color showing through.
