Part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy involves ensuring you have a regular oral exam. This exam includes identifying any developing dental problems that should be treated immediately, such as decay or gum disease. It can also identify more serious health issues such as mouth cancer. We urge our patients to keep a regular schedule of dental exams that includes an oral exam, X-rays, and photos of the condition of your teeth.
The oral exam will check the depth of the “pockets” around the teeth so that any gum disease can be treated before it worsens.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
