As a Prosthodontist who began his training with dental implants 18 years ago, Dr. Luis R. Pérez has the pleasure of seeing patients’ self-confidence restored with dental implants even sometimes in a single-day. Dr. Pérez highlights a few reasons why dental implants are long-term choices, more beneficial than conventional fixed-bridges.
Statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth. Patients who are current denture wearers, or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations, can greatly benefit from the “All-On-4” implant technique.
At Fairway Dental, Dr. Pérez’ approach to successful dental implants requires that all parties involved — the patient, Dr. Perez who is in charge of the planning and the restorative phase, his dental technician and the oral surgeon who surgically places the implants, follow a detailed treatment plan. All members of the implant team stay in close communication with each other to make sure everyone clearly understands what needs to be done to meet the patient's desires and expectations
Qualified patients can have a full-set of new replacement teeth in a single-day with the “All-On-4” Implant Technique! Here are the major patient advantages of this technique over a technique using more than 4 implants:
- This technique is a permanent, non-removable (fixed) replacement for teeth that can be maintained as natural teeth, following proper hygiene protocol.
- Full arch replacement requires only 4 specially placed implants.
- Patients have a faster recovery time and greater comfort after surgery.
- Minimizing the need for grafting, resulting in less cost, less surgery and less discomfort to the patient.
- These implants can last a lifetime, if cared for properly, and can prevent further bone loss.
- The patient’s ability to taste is not compromised, as no part of the roof of their mouth has to be covered (as with dentures, for example).
- The patient will have an efficient bite once more and can once again enjoy a variety of nourishing foods, greatly enhancing overall health.
- Achieve satisfying and natural looking esthetic results
