Jackson, MS (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
Patients who have missing teeth and are considering tooth replacements should visit Dr. Roger Parkes and Dr. R. Clarke Stewart of Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. to find out about All-on-4 dental implants, which give patients the combined benefits of implants and dentures.
All-on-4 dental implants are preferable to individual implants for many patients. People who have already experienced some loss of jaw bone density benefit from the fact that All-on-4 only requires four implants, and the placement can be chosen to make the best use of the bone density that patients still have.
Another advantage of All-on-4 is that it lets patients with missing teeth walk away the same day with a secure smile. For patients who do not require a bone graft, Dr. Parkes or Dr. Stewart can perform the majority of the procedure in one session. They give patients an anesthetic, place the four implants, and attach a temporary set of teeth, which may be the denture that patients already use. The implants are given three or four months to integrate with the jaw bone, and then patients visit Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart again to have a customized denture attached permanently.
Patients who want a lasting, low-maintenance tooth replacement should visit Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart to learn about All-on-4. Patients can call the office of Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. to set up an appointment.
