Houston Dental Implants 101: Going Beyond “All on Four”

February 1, 2015

Untitled12915“All-on-Four” is a revolutionary technique which was developed for the rehabilitation of total tooth loss patients with the placement of only four titanium implants in each jaw, through a minimally invasive procedure.  The “All-on-Four” dental implants act as a foundation for a fixed prosthesis (denture). By tilting the two posterior implants at an angle, “All-on-Four” restorations allow patients with virtually no bone to have fixed teeth without the need for a bone graft. The result is a non-removable and natural looking dentition, often indistinguishable from natural teeth. In some cases, the “All-on-Four” technique can be incorporated to allow immediate functioning by combining both the surgery and the formation of a temporary prosthesis, allowing the patient to have “Teeth-in-a-Day”! Whether you need just one, or multiple dental implant restorations, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Koo and the highly qualified team of Piney Point OMS in Houston, TX team today.
