Florence, KY (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
Local residents who have lost multiple adult teeth now have a revolutionary alternative to standard dental implants in Florence, KY that delivers a pleasingly beautiful appearance, outstanding functionality, and less impact to patients than ever before. Drs. Ryan Estes and Lloyd Parmley of Perio-Implant Care now use the All-on-4™ technique which blends the best of implants with dentures to secure a fixed or removable prosthesis on top of four posts placed in the strongest areas of the jaw for an immediate new smile.
Many people may not be candidates for standard dental implants in Florence, KY to replace all of the teeth they have lost. This is often due to a lack of sufficient bone density in the jaw, which is required to support an implant just as it would support a natural tooth. Standard implants require one implant per missing tooth. The All-on-4™ procedure allows Drs. Estes and Parmley to locate four areas in the jaw with enough bone volume in which to position posts. From there, a temporary denture is attached on the same day, giving patients a whole new smile in one office visit. A few months later, after the implant posts have fused with the natural bone in a process called osseointegration, a permanent denture is secured to the posts. This solution offers better longevity, stability, comfort, and natural function than standard dentures alone.
Replacing missing teeth is an important way of guarding against future problems. Natural tooth roots provide regular stimulation to the jaw bone, keeping it healthy and vital. When those roots are no longer present, the bone loses this action. Over a period of time, the bone can begin to erode away. This is called resorption and can at times be identified by a disfigurement through the chin and jaw area of patients. Both speech and eating can be impacted when this happens. Additionally, many people can become highly self-conscious about the change in their appearances. The All-on-4™ technique can prevent against these situations.
