For most patients, it is fear, time and money that are the biggest concerns when it comes to taking care of their mouth. This can lead to bone loss, infections in the gums and teeth, cavities, and loss of teeth. At Metropolitan Periodontists P.A. we want to help our patients keep their natural teeth but sometimes this is not an option. Fortunately, we have options to give patients back their natural looking smile. One of those options is the ‘All-on-4’ implant technique. For those of you that have never heard of ‘All on 4’, it is a treatment option for patients that have lost or will lose most of or all of their teeth. The ‘All on 4’ technique is a team approach with us, your dentist, and the dental lab to give patients back 90% of their chewing function. By strategically placing 4 dental implants, we can place an immediate fixed denture. Having a fixed denture saves people from those embarrassing moments of their teeth falling out unexpectedly. Fixed dentures are less bulky and more secure than traditional dentures. When we can give patients a treatment option that positively impacts their lives, we feel we have done our job and that is why we love doing what we do.
