Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2013
Dr. Raymond A. Kenzik now offers a more affordable technique to replace missing teeth with dental implants in Ormond Beach, FL by using the All-On-4 technique. This technique is specifically designed for patients who have a limited amount of bone and/or a limited budget. This technique is an affordable alternative that makes the best use of available bone by using only four implants.
The All-On-4 technique has a 98.5 percent success rate at the four-year follow up and is a tried and true technique that has been used for over ten years. The All-On-4 technique is the ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume because they do not generally require bone grafting. At the beginning of the procedure, after being numbed, four dental implants are placed in the locations where the bone volume is best. Once those four implants have been placed, a denture, whether existing or new, becomes the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that same day. After about three to four months, when the bone has fully integrated with the implant, the temporary teeth are removed, and a new set of teeth are made and permanently anchored into place.
Typically, with a normal implant procedure, the cost increases with each missing tooth. This makes replacing multiple teeth or an entire set of teeth very expensive. In the past, patients who could not afford dental implants were stuck wearing dentures, which can be packed with complications. With normal dentures, the appliances regularly need to be refitted and even replaced because of their propensity to move around in the mouth. Normal dentures are not very well supported because they are only sitting on the gums. The problems seen with normal dentures are not seen with the All-On-4 method. The All-on-4 method offers a more stable way to replace missing teeth because it improves the stability and fit of dentures because they are supported by four dental implants.
