Detroit, MI (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Denture wearers are thrilled to learn about a new procedure that can provide people with a comfortable, natural-looking alternative to dentures. The procedure is called All-On-4 and is "wow-ing" both denture candidates and wearers all over the country.
The All-On-4 dental implant procedure is ideal for patients who have lost many or all of their teeth and are looking to have them replaced with something stable and long-lasting. Dental implants act like natural teeth would, becoming integrated into the jaw bone to help keep it healthy and preserved. Dental implants look and feel just like real teeth do and don't require the dentist to cut down the healthy adjacent teeth as many other tooth replacement options do.
The way All-On-4 works is that four implants are placed on the top arch of the mouth and four implants are placed on the bottom arch. A set of permanent replacement teeth are then placed on top of the implants. These teeth do not need to be removed from the mouth and will stay in place permanently. No tooth "glue" necessary.
People who have the All-On-4 dental implant procedure often note improved oral functioning and beautiful esthetic results. Many people also mention that dental implants have helped to ward off signs of premature aging. Because implants preserve the facial bone, the bone is still able to provide support to the skin to help prevent wrinkles and sagging skin.
Tooth loss is not uncommon among adults. It can often occur due to periodontal gum disease, tooth decay, tooth injury, or trauma to the mouth. According to dental data, about 175 million Americans have at least one missing tooth, with 35 million of them missing all of their teeth.
