Newark, DE (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Dr. Leo Kituskie offers the All-on-4™ technique to residents of Newark, DE who are suffering from the problems missing teeth cause. All-on-4™ is a dental procedure that uses implants to hold the dentures in place while strengthening the jawbone. This prevents the loss of bone density that can cause facial restructuring, adding years to a patient’s appearance.
Tooth roots work with the jawbone to create a solid foundation for the teeth. When a tooth is lost, the bone beneath begins to deteriorate. When residents of Newark, DE have several missing teeth, the bone density is lost at a much faster rate. Many people opt for dentures or bridges, but these solutions do not slow the rate of bone loss. Dental implants are surgically placed into the bone, and they act as replacement roots that hold teeth in place while stimulating the jawbone. When the jaw does not have the density to support a dental implant, many periodontists recommend bone grafts to increase the width and depth enough to create a solid foundation.
With the All-on-4™ procedure, Dr. Kituskie is able to provide a healthy, bone-strengthening solution for those patients with low bone density. The process begins with an examination to determine where the jawbone is the strongest. Four strategic implant sites are chosen for the titanium posts, which fuse with the bone as they heal, providing bone stimulation for the jaw and solid support for the teeth. A set of temporary dentures are affixed so the patient is able to function normally during the recovery process. Often, this can be completed in one office visit. After about three months, these are replaced by a permanent set that look and function like natural teeth.
Residents of Newark, DE who are suffering the results of missing teeth can find more information about the benefits of the All-on-4™ procedure on Dr. Kituskie’s website.
