Did you know that there is a direct connection between the state of your oral health and that of your heart? It’s true, and is not something most people are aware of. In fact, until recently most doctors also did not know the extent with which oral hygiene and cardiovascular health are linked. A healthy mouth leads to a healthy heart However, the results of multiple, comprehensive studies, such as those conducted by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, reveal a number of striking statistics. In particular, individuals who have moderate to severe gum disease are at a much higher risk for developing heart disease. Furthermore, an analysis of a patient’s oral health can identify key warning signs and symptoms of many other underlying health problems, including cardiovascular…

Everyone is susceptible to tooth decay and tooth loss in old age is common, but that doesn’t mean that you should just accept it and deal with the consequences later. Tooth loss for many is preventable. If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, dental implants will remain your best option for replacing them. These implants act just as your natural teeth do and give your mouth the ability to act as it would without missing teeth. The causes for missing teeth can be grouped into two general categories: trauma and disease.

When 4, 5, or 6 dental implants are inserted, that forms a strong foundation for dental bridges or dentures. The dentist will space out the implants for the optimal geometric shape. Depending on the circumstance, the dentist will have to use more or less to achieve the desired stability for the underlying support.

What Is All-on-4?

Share Us On:

First developed in 1980 by a Portuguese dentist by the name of Paulo Malo, the All-on-4 dental cosmetic procedure has seen a dramatic rise in popularity over the last three decades. This is primarily due to its incredibly effective abilities to restore the loss of multiple teeth, all without hindering function, appearance, or patient comfort. All About the Implant: the All-on-4 Procedure at a Glance Although dentists offer a number of replacement methods, conventional dentures and bridges are not always the most suitable. Prior to the introduction of standard implants and the more advanced, All-on-4 procedure, patients had no choice but to live with gapped teeth (in the event of individual tooth loss), or have a complete set of upper or lower dentures installed.
