Dentures can be a pain. Sure, they help you speak and eat like you have regular teeth, but they also come with their problems.
The dental industry is constantly advancing, and now, there’s a better option that will give you an new set of teeth in just one day.
All On 4 implants restore your entire smile with only – you guessed it – 4 implants.
The treatment involves just one surgery, and the cost of this procedure is much lower than other alternatives, giving you an affordable way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Unlike dentures, All On 4 implants are securely placed deep in the jawbone, which means you’ll never have to worry about them shifting or loosening.
To give you a better idea of how this procedure works, let’s first go through what a single dental implant looks like.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is secured deep in your jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. After the implant is put in place, a crown is attached to give you a secure and functional prosthetic tooth.
The beauty of the All On 4 implants is that you don’t need a dental implant for each one of your missing teeth.
All you need to get an entire new set of teeth on the top row of your mouth is 4 implants that are strategically placed.
The implant material is made of titanium, meaning that it’s extremely durable.
The best part of the procedure is that titanium has the ability to fuse to your bone and to function as a part of it.
That means that the All On 4 implants will become a part of your jawbone, serving as prosthetic teeth that feel and look completely natural.
The implants can also help prevent future bone loss in your jaw. Your facial structure will be maintained for a longer period of time, and your oral health will be much better.
Dr. Jae Cho has expertly perfected this technology so that you can have a perfect smile in one day.
Here’s why patients who are missing most of their teeth rely on Wildflower:
After you leave with a brand new smile, everyday activities will feel different – better. The dental implants are temporary, which gives them time to heal and attach correctly to your jawbone.
Once that legwork is complete, we’ll replace those temporary teeth with permanent ones, leaving you with a smile that fits your facial structure perfectly.

Periodontal (gum) disease, which is also known as periodontal disease and periodontitis, is a progressive disease which if left untreated may result in tooth loss. Gum disease begins with the inflammation and irritation of the gingival tissues which surround and support the teeth. The cause of this inflammation is the toxins found in plaque which cause an ongoing bacterial infection.
The bacterial infection colonizes in the gingival tissue and deep pockets form between the teeth and the gums. If treated promptly by a periodontist, the effects of mild inflammation (known as gingivitis) are completely reversible. However, if the bacterial infection is allowed to progress, periodontal disease begins to destroy the gums and the underlying jawbone; promoting tooth loss. In some cases, the bacteria from this infection can travel to other areas of the body via the bloodstream.
There are genetic and environmental factors involved in the onset of gum disease, and in many cases the risk of developing periodontitis can be significantly lowered by taking preventative measures.
Here are some of the most common causes of gum disease:
Periodontists specialize in the treatment of gum disease and the placement of dental implants. A periodontist can perform effective cleaning procedures in deep pockets such as scaling and root planing, and also prescribe antibiotic and antifungal medications to treat infection and halt the progression of the disease.
In the case of tooth loss, the periodontist is able to perform tissue grafts to promote natural tissue regeneration, and insert dental implants if a tooth or several teeth are missing. Where gum recession causes a “toothy” looking smile, the periodontist can recontour the gingival tissue to create an even and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Preventing periodontal disease is critical in preserving the natural dentition. Addressing the causes of gum disease and discussing them with your dentist will help prevent the onset, progression, and recurrence of periodontal disease.
If you have any questions or concerns about the causes or treatments pertaining to gum disease, please ask your dentist.
