Our teeth are critical in maintaining proper aesthetics and function of our mouths, jaws, and face. Your smile is one of the first things that everyone notices and your teeth are required to chew and enjoy your food, but unfortunately you may be at a point in your life where you have lost multiple teeth or have many teeth that are too unhealthy to remain in your mouth. When you lose teeth your natural speech, eating habits, and smile are severely affected and you are at greater risk for losing bone in your jaw. Today dental implants are a proven technique to restore the aesthetics and function of your natural teeth and avoid the inevitable oral health problems. Traditionally, multiple implants expensive bone grafting and long healing times were necessary to place the implant. Using a solution called the All-on-Four technique, the surgeons at Charleston Oral & Facial Surgery can often times avoid these additional surgeries and longer treatment times and restore an entire arcs of beautiful teeth with a single fixed prosthesis. Many patients prefer the All-on-Four procedure because of its reliable dental implant base. Unlike other denture options which can be uncomfortable and move around, the All- on-Four procedure utilizes dental implants which firmly secure the teeth in the mouth and because the implants replace missing teeth roots in the jaw patients can maintain the overall health of their jaw bone over time. At Charleston Oral & Facial Surgery we want to provide you the most efficient and cost effective treatment that will provide you with the best overall result. In certain situations the dental implant can even be placed at the same time the teeth are removed, allowing our patients to get back to being able to talk, chew, and smile with confidence.
