Online PR News – 16-July-2010 – – Houston, Texas – Dr. David K. Dennison, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D., a leading Board-certified periodontist in the Houston area, is pleased to announce that he is now offering the All-on-4 dental implant procedure to his patients. The innovative dental implant technique, devised in conjunction with implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare, provides a relatively quick, effective, and economically feasible option for patients in need of tooth restoration and replacement.

Unlike more traditional dental implant procedures, which often involve bone grafts, the implantation of numerous dental implants and the wearing of uncomfortable temporary dentures throughout the treatment (which can span upwards of a year or more), the All-on-4 implant technique can usually be completed in one office visit. This allows the patient to walk out the same day with a set of teeth after a single procedure. Four to six months later, the final teeth are custom made corresponding to the patients exact implant placement and facial contours.

During the All-on-4 dental implant procedure offered by Dr. Dennison, four implants are placed securely in healthy bone within the jaw and replacement teeth are almost immediately secured onto the implants. The back implants are angled so that they can take advantage of available bone structure, without the need for bone grafts or more extensive oral surgery. Once the implants have been secured, the replacement teeth are fitted and adjusted to the new implants and the patient is left with a new set of permanently secured teeth.

“This is a procedure that can usually be accomplished in 4-6 hours, and is ideal for patients who do not want dentures, have difficulty wearing dentures, or who have extensive periodontal disease," explains Dr. Dennison. “The All-on-4 procedure can be used to replace either upper or lower teeth and provides patients with an option to have a set of permanently secured replacement teeth without the extensive surgery and time traditionally required by other dental implant procedures. These new teeth are more comfortable, look more natural, and preserve the health of the jaw and surrounding teeth better than less permanent options, such as dentures.”

Dr. Dennison offers the All-on-4 implant procedure, along with many other dental and periodontal treatments, at his Houston-based practice. As the Houston periodontist explains, “we are committed to excellence in patient care and are dedicated to pursuing the latest advances in periodontics and dentistry so that our patients receive the very best treatment.”
