Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Some seventy percent of American adults are missing one or more teeth by the age of forty. Dr. J Alexander Withers introduces a rapid and effective dental implant technique that provides new hope to Fairfax, VA patients who have been living with missing teeth. With the All-on-4™ technique, replacement teeth are secured to four titanium implants placed strategically in places of maximum bone strength in the jaw. With proper care and good dental hygiene, the dental implants can last a lifetime with replacement teeth that look and feel natural.
Many people seek traditional solutions to tooth loss, such as a bridge or denture to fill the holes left by the loss of one or more natural teeth. Unfortunately, many traditional solutions lead to increased problems in the long run. A bridge used to replace one or two missing teeth relies on the adjoining healthy teeth for support. The healthy teeth used to support the bridge are cut down, leaving them more prone to decay and other problems.
Traditional dentures often slip or click while the wearer is talking or eating. Worse, the dentures ride on the gums, putting pressure on the delicate gum tissue. The jawbone lacks the normal healthy stimulation that it received from the roots of the teeth, resulting in bone loss.
Fortunately, advanced dental implants that are now available in Fairfax, VA do not have these problems and limitations. The titanium posts placed in the jawbone contribute to ongoing bone strength and full dental health. With All-on-4™ implants, patients are able to eat a healthy and varied diet. The replacement teeth function much like natural teeth, without the movement experienced with traditional dentures.
