Braintree, MA (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Dental implants are now available even for patients with low jaw bone density with the All-on-4 procedure in Braintree, MA. Using only four dental implants in the strongest areas of the jaw, Dr. Thomas Mone can support dentures for a permanent tooth replacement.
All-on-4 implants offer unique benefits over other tooth replacements. As the name indicates, only four implants are needed to support the full denture. Patients who already have lost jaw bone density benefit from this, since the implants can be placed to make the best use of the remaining jaw bone. All-on-4 is more secure than dentures, so patients can eat and talk normally without worrying about slipping or other problems. All-on-4 is more affordable than individual implants, and patients are less likely to need a bone graft to be eligible for the procedure.
Still, the most important benefit of All-on-4 is that it can help patients maintain their present level of jaw bone density. If the jaw bone is not stimulated, which is the case for patients who are missing teeth, it will start shrinking. Dentures are not the ideal tooth replacement option because they do nothing to prevent loss of bone density. The changes in mouth size and shape that follow jaw bone loss require dentures to be resized if they are going to fit properly. This means that dentures require even more work over time than patients realize. All-on-4 is a permanent solution that prevents changes in the mouth and will hold up over time.
If patients wait too long after losing their teeth to consider their tooth replacement options, bone density loss might make other solutions less feasible, unless the patient is willing to undergo a bone density graft. It is in the best interest of patients to visit Dr. Mone and explore their options early. Dr. Mone can perform a quick evaluation to determine whether All-on-4 dental implants are the ideal solution for a patient. Patients interested in All-on-4 can find more information at the website of Mone Periodontics, or call the office today to schedule a consultation.
