Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
People who need to replace adult teeth and want an alternative to dentures or individual implants can now visit MALO Clinic of Cincinnati to receive All-on-4™ dentures supported by implants. Drs. Al-Zubi and Azzam may recommend All-on-4™ dental implants for Cincinnati, OH patients who have low bone density and need to replace multiple teeth. The All-on-4™ technique makes the best use of each patient’s existing bone density to anchor a denture in place with just four implants.
During the All-on-4™ procedure, Drs. Al-Zubi and Azzam place titanium implants directly into the jaw bone. Although these implants require a few months to heal and integrate with the bone, Drs. Al-Zubi and Azzam can attach a set of temporary dentures to the implants immediately after the procedure. Once the implants have fused with the bone, Drs. Al-Zubi and Azzam can attach a permanent denture during a follow-up appointment. Patients who elect for All-on-4™ to replace adult teeth usually walk away from the procedure with a functional set of teeth, whereas patients who receive individual implants must wait months before crowns can be attached.
All-on-4™ implant supported dentures offer various benefits for oral health. When patients replace adult teeth with unsecured prosthetics such as traditional dentures, they are at risk of losing jaw bone density. The alveolar bone, which holds the teeth in place, will stop maintaining itself if the stimulation from teeth is lost. All-on-4™ implants provide the stimulation needed to prevent this bone density loss. All-on-4™ may also be more advantageous than traditional dental implants for Cincinnati, OH patients who already have low bone density levels. Patients only need to receive four implants per arch to replace all of their teeth, and those implants can be placed where bone density is greatest, which lowers the likelihood that a patient will need a bone graft.
Anyone interested in learning more about All-on-4™ should schedule a consultation with Dr. Al-Zubi or Dr. Azzam at the MALO Clinic of Cincinnati to determine whether the procedure is the ideal choice.
