Edina, MN (PRWEB) January 16, 2019
Leading board-certified periodontist Dr. Andres Sanchez, founder of PerioWest, encourages individuals who live with loose dentures or missing teeth in Edina, MN, to discover innovative, advanced solutions including All-on-4® dental implants. Dr. Sanchez has placed countless dental implants during his career, using equipment including cone beam CT scanners to improve surgical precision and dental implant success rates.
Dental implants offer welcome relief for patients with loose dentures that slip, click, or slide. Not only can loose dentures be an embarrassment, but they can lead to gum and mouth discomfort. All-on-4 dental implants can restore full function to a patient’s smile and immediately remove the likelihood and worry of loose dentures.
All-on-4 dental implants require just four dental posts to be surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Two of the implants are placed at an angle, making better use of available bone density. Even patients who may not be good candidates for single dental implants may qualify to receive All-on-4.
Immediately after All-on-4 surgery, Dr. Sanchez attaches a temporary denture restoration to the implants. This restoration provides immediate cosmetic improvement, as well as oral function. Patients can leave their All-on-4 dental implant placement surgeries with complete smiles. After the dental implants have appropriately fused to the surrounding bone, they will be stable enough to hold a permanent full arch replacement for the temporary one worn right after surgery.
In addition to All-on-4 dental implants solving concerns related to loose dentures, the treatment can be an asset to individuals who are missing teeth in Edina, MN, or who require tooth extraction that will leave them without teeth in a full arch. Many patients are excellent candidates for All-on-4 placement. Those that are not may qualify with healthy or behavioral adjustments, such as a bone graft or treatment for TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
Dr. Sanchez invites anyone with loose dentures or missing teeth in Edina, MN and surrounding areas to contact his office for an appointment at 952-479-4705.
