Daytona Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Patients now have access to a more effective and affordable treatment option to replace missing teeth that combines both denture and implant technology with periodontist, Dr. Raymond Kenzik near Daytona Beach, FL. The All-on-4™ treatment option uses four precisely placed dental implants to support a denture in place, permanently. Implant supported dentures are an ideal solution for many different types of patients because it is both cost effective and useful for patients who have suffered from jaw bone density decreases.
Traditional implant treatments can be very costly because with each missing tooth that gets replaced, the cost increases. Also, patients who have decreased jaw bone density are not candidates for traditional implant procedures because in order for the implant to be successful, it must fuse with a healthy, dense portion of the jaw bone. Tooth replacement solutions for patients with decreased jaw bone density have been fairly limited to removable dentures, which can be very uncomfortable and ill-fitting. Removable dentures, as they simply sit on the gums, often require many re-fittings because of their tendency to slide around in the mouth during eating and speaking. The All-on-4™ solution virtually eliminates the problems associated with dentures because of the extra support added by the four precisely placed implants.
With the All-on-4™ method, four dental implants are placed where bone volume and density are the best. After the implants were placed, either new or already existing dentures are used as the model for a temporary set of teeth that are attached during the appointment. After the implants have fully fused with the jaw bone, which can take up to four months, the temporary set of teeth is removed and a permanent set of teeth are placed. Implant supported dentures provide patients with a more affordable and permanent solution to replace their missing teeth.
