Madison, MS (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
People who have lost their teeth can protect their oral health by visiting Dr. Roger Parkes and Dr. Clarke Stewart for a dental implant solution that requires minimal healing time. All-on-4® dentures supported by implants can help Madison, MS patients with missing teeth stabilize their jawbone density levels, eat a regular diet, and feel confident in their smiles. Implant supported dentures also offer patients a more affordable solution than individual implants, since only four implants are needed to anchor the denture.
Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart often encourage Madison patients who have missing teeth to consider dental implants because of the associated health benefits. Implants are anchored directly in the jawbone, just like natural teeth, so they provide stimulation and prevent the bone from deteriorating. Bone deterioration, or resorption, is an irreversible process. If resorption progresses far enough, victims may no longer be able to use dentures or receive implants without first having a bone graft. Although many patients recognize the benefits that implants offer, individual implants may not be a financially reasonable solution for people who have lost all of their teeth. With the All-on-4® technique, Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart offer their patients the benefits of implants, fast results, and affordable pricing.
Drs. Parkes and Stewart can place implant supported dentures in a few appointments. During an initial consultation, Drs. Parkes and Stewart determine whether the technique is a good fit for the patient. The doctors also decide where the four implants should be placed. The implants can be positioned strategically to accommodate the person’s existing bone density, which is beneficial for people with low bone density levels. During the next appointment, the doctors administer anesthesia and place the four implants. They then fit the patient with a fully functional temporary denture. About three months later, after the implants have healed and fused into the bone, the doctors attach a new set of teeth to the implants.
Madison, MS residents with missing teeth are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart about the All-on-4® implant technique. Patients who delay learning about their options run the risk of losing bone density or developing other oral health issues that may make implant-supported dentures unadvisable. Patients are welcome to call the office to schedule an appointment or visit the practice website to learn more about implant-supported dentures.
