Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Dr. Darryl A. Field, a dental implant periodontist, now offers a dental implant procedure that may be especially beneficial to patients who have experienced varying degrees of bone loss in terms of volume or density. The procedure, known as the All-on-4™ technique, enables the doctor to place dental implants in such a way that they can be immediately functional with the use of an existing or temporary denture for patients who undergo the procedure. For patients in need of dental implants in Jacksonville, FL Dr. Field’s offer of the All-on-4™ technique should be exceptionally beneficial.
In many cases in which a patient has low bone density or volume, it may be necessary to use bone grafting as a part of the process. Through the use of the All-on-4™ technique, it is often unnecessary for any bone grafts to be used and the existing bone is more than enough to achieve effective results. The issue of low bone density or volume in the jaw is most often seen in patients who have had lost teeth or used dentures for an extended period of time, as this will frequently cause bone loss in terms of both volume and density. Through this procedure, patients seeking dental implants in Jacksonville, FL will now have another effective and immediately functional option to choose from.
The procedure itself is very precise, as the dental implant periodontist will take advantage of a three-dimensional scan in order to locate the ideal sites for the placement of the dental implants. The implants are then put in place and while they are immediately functional, there is a need for them to become fully integrated with the jaw. During the integration process, a temporary denture will be worn, followed by a permanent denture that is put in place after integration.
Patients seeking dental implants in Jacksonville, FL should contact the office of Dr. Field to schedule an appointment for a consultation. The dental implant periodontist will likely need to determine the eligibility of each patient for the procedure and to discuss other options that may also be available. There are many benefits to undergoing this procedure, but it is first necessary for patients to understand the process and determine if they are eligible for this particular treatment.
