Galveston, TX (PRWEB) May 25, 2014
Stephen C. Hale, DDS, now offers the All-on-4™ technique to patients who need dental implants in Galveston, TX. This implant procedure provides an affordable option for patients who do not have adequate bone density for traditional implants or that do not wish to receive traditional dentures used frequently used to replace missing teeth.
Low bone density is most often a result of gum disease or bone loss due to tooth loss. Although it does not necessarily lead to osteoporosis, low bone density can cause other health problems. This is especially true when a person needs to replace missing teeth. Traditional dental implants cannot anchor properly to the jaw bone if it is not dense enough to support the anchoring posts. In these cases, Dr. Hale offers a technique called All-on-4™ to patients who need dental implants in Galveston, TX. This implant technique allows him to restore the patient’s smile in just one appointment.
All-on-4™ is a time tested technique that consists of four implants placed in strategic areas to maximize the jaw’s bone density. These implants anchor a set of temporary teeth that Dr. Hale attaches the same day. Patients walk out of the office with a mouthful of new teeth that are ready to be used immediately. This temporary set of teeth remains in place until the bone has integrated with the implants, which usually takes three to six months. At this time, he replaces the temporary set with a new set and anchors them in place permanently.
Patients who opt for the All-on-4™ technique recover the ability to eat whatever foods they choose, a new smile, and better quality of life. Long term results include stress free oral hygiene without frustrating removable denture plates or difficult to clean bridges. The All-on-4™ implant technique is a permanent, low cost solution for patients who are considering dental implants in Galveston to replace missing teeth.
Low bone density does not have to place limits on a person’s oral health. To learn more about the benefits of the All-on-4™ implant technique, visit Dr. Hale’s website or call his office to schedule a consultation.
