Let me tell you, no one likes going to the dentist–but too many people avoid the dentist for fear. Unfortunately, this often leads to more serious issues, that are then more painful to solve.

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.
