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.

Researchers have shown that periodontal disease in expectant mothers actually exposes their unborn child to many different risks; particularly if they also happen to be diabetes sufferers.
Periodontal disease generally begins with a bacterial infection in the gum (gingival) tissue, which progressively destroys the tissue and the underlying bone. If left untreated, the bacterial infection causes an inflammatory reaction in the body, which can significantly deepen the gum pockets (space between the teeth and gums) and forces the gum and jawbone to recede. Eventually, the progressive nature of periodontal disease causes the teeth to become loose and unstable, and eventually fall out.
Pregnancy causes many hormonal changes which increase the risk of the expectant mother to develop gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissue) and periodontal disease. These oral problems have been linked in many research studies to preeclampsia, low birth weight of the baby and premature birth. Expectant women should seek immediate treatment for periodontal disease in order to reduce the risk of pre-natal and post-natal complications.
There are many different reasons why periodontal disease may affect the health of the mother and her unborn child:
There are many safe, non surgical treatment options available for pregnant women. It is of paramount importance to halt the progress of periodontal disease in order to increase the chances of a safe and healthy delivery.
Initially, the dentist will assess the exact condition of the gums and jawbone in order to make a precise diagnosis. Scaling and root planing are two common non-surgical procedures used to rid the tooth-root surfaces of calculus (tartar) and remove the bacterial toxins from the gum pockets.
The advantages to the pregnant woman are plentiful. The risks of pregnancy complications caused by periodontal disease are reduced by as much as 50%, and these treatments will alleviate many unpleasant and harmful effects associated with gingivitis and periodontal infection.
Dentists can provide dental education and recommendations to the pregnant women on effective home care which can reduce risks that may affect her and/or her child’s health. Risks of periodontal disease can be vastly reduced by proper home care, smoking cessation, dietary changes and the ingestion of supplementary vitamins.
If you have any questions or concerns about periodontal disease and its affect on pregnancy, please ask your dentist.
