Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) October 05, 2013
Dr. Adam F. Weaver provides the Greenwood Village area with some of the most advanced periodontal options available such as All-On-4 dentures supported by dental implants. Traditional dentures come with headaches for patients like clicking noises and slipping and sliding while the individual is talking or eating. Now, individuals with missing teeth can opt for a denture that is fixed into place using dental implants. Because the All-On-4 denture will not fall out of place, many of these potential discomforts of traditional dentures can be avoided.
People who are missing all of their teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both, may want to consider a less problematic tooth replacement solution than traditional dentures. However, getting a whole mouth full of dental implants can be very expensive. Also, many individuals do not have healthy enough bone density in the jaw to support a full set of implants and they would require arduous bone graft procedures in order for their jaw to regain the ability to support them. Even bone grafting is not an option for some patients if they cannot receive bone transplants due to other health issues such as diabetes. All-On-4 may be an ideal solution in cases like these.
To install the All-On-4 denture, Dr. Weaver places four permanent dental implants into the mouth in the areas where the bone density in the jaw is at its healthiest. Because the All-On-4 procedure requires only four implants, it requires less invasive surgery than installing a whole set of implants. During this visit, he then gives the patient a temporary denture to wear while he or she heals from the implant surgery. After the titanium implants fully fuse with the jaw bone, the individual is given a permanent denture that is fixed into place using abutment pieces attached to the base of the implants. The individual can then enjoy foods that would need to be avoided with traditional dentures. Embarrassing situations involving the sliding around of dentures can also be avoided.
Individuals with many missing teeth may want to consider All-On-4. Interested parties can visit http://www.mtperio.com for more information.
