Over 3 million Americans have dental implants, 1 in 4 people over 74 are missing all their natural teeth and 35 million Americans are missing every tooth in one or both jaws. Because of these high numbers, it’s important that patients are aware of how a periodontist in Dallas, TX, can help.
Do you deal with the self-consciousness and lack of self-esteem that comes from missing teeth? Do you have broken, discolored or cracked teeth that you want replaced with something more attractive, more comfortable and more permanent? While dental implants are an extremely valuable solution for those who want a perfect smile, Dr. Gandhi also offers All-on-4 dental implants, which are most cost effective and a faster solution for those who want their smile repaired in a day.
How Does It Work?
This procedure is ideal for those who have poor broken teeth, are missing all their teeth or those who have dentures that fit poorly. In the past, if a patient was missing an entire arch of teeth, the treatment of choice was dentures, but new technology has made it easier than ever to repair your smile.
With All-on-4 implants, only four implants are placed, and four teeth are secured on each arch. This means that rather than having a rod placed for each individual tooth, an entire jaw can be placed on just four implants. The procedure is done with the patient under sedation and all implants are placed in the same day. The healing period is usually three to four months, but after that, only three yearly appointments are needed to ensure the implants are healthy and prepared to stay strong long-term.
