The holidays are here, and for many people, it is the most wonderful time of year that is filled with joy and charity. It also often means lots of gatherings with friends and family. If you are someone who prefers to hide your smile because you worry about the state of your teeth, now is a great time to quickly restore your smile and share it with everyone throughout the season. Your periodontist may be able to help with a treatment such as All-On-4 dental implants.

 

Get Ready for Family, Friends, and Festivities

 

Dental implants require a bit of preparation, so getting started on treatment sooner will help you be ready for all of the parties that much faster. Implants tend to look and function much like natural teeth, which means you can still enjoy many of the foods you love and no one is likely to notice that your teeth are prosthodontics.

 

Dental Implants Can Restore Your Confidence

 

All-On-4 dental implants are particularly affected because they can hold a full arch of teeth on just four implant posts. The posts are embedded into the jawbone and fuse to the bone through osseointegration. After healing, the implants should not move, which means you can use your prosthodontics without worrying about them slipping or falling out. This is a long-term solution that can last for decades or even a lifetime.

 

Starting Early Is a Smart Move

 

Not everyone is a good candidate for implants, so it is important to consult with Dr. J. Alexander Withers as early as possible. Qualified individuals should have sufficient bone density to support the implants, which can sometimes be achieved through a bone graft. This can add time onto treatment, but you still may be able to enjoy your implants sooner than you think.
