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 disease (also called periodontitis and gum disease) has been linked to respiratory disease through recent research studies. Researchers have concluded that periodontal disease can worsen conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may actually play a causal role in the contraction of pneumonia, bronchitis and emphysema.
Periodontal disease is a progressive condition which generally begins with a bacterial infection. The bacteria found in plaque begin to colonize in gingival tissue, causing an inflammatory response in which the body destroys both gum and bone tissue. The sufferer may notice the teeth “lengthening” as the gums recede while the disease progresses. If left untreated, erosion of the bone tissue brings about a less stable base for the teeth, meaning loose, shifting or complete tooth loss.
There are a number of different respiratory diseases linked to periodontal disease. Pneumonia, COPD, and bronchitis are among the most common. Generally, bacterial respiratory infections occur due to the inhalation of fine droplets from the mouth into the lungs. COPD is a leading cause of death and should be taken very seriously.
The fact that respiratory disease and periodontal disease are linked may seem far-fetched, but there is plenty of evidence to support it.
Here are some of the reasons for the link between periodontal disease and respiratory disease:
When respiratory disease and periodontal disease are both diagnosed in one individual, it is important for the dentist and doctor to function as a team to control both conditions. There are many non-surgical and surgical options available, depending on the specific condition of the teeth, gums and jaw.
The dentist is able to assess the extent of the inflammation and tissue loss and can treat the bacterial infection easily. Scaling procedures cleanse the pockets of debris and root planing smoothes the tooth root to eliminate any remaining bacteria. The dentist generally places antibiotics into the pockets after cleaning to promote good healing and reduce the risk of the infection returning.
Whichever treatment is deemed the most suitable, the benefits of controlling periodontal disease are two-fold. Firstly, any discomfort in the oral region will be reduced and the gums will be much healthier. Secondly, the frequent, unpleasant respiratory infections associated with COPD and other common respiratory problems will reduce in number.
If you have questions or concerns about respiratory disease or periodontal disease, please ask your dentist.
