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.

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a by-product of blood that is exceptionally rich in platelets. PRP has long been used in hospitals to accelerate the body’s own healing process, but it is only fairly recently that advances in technology have allowed this same technique to be used in the dental office.
The blood platelets perform several essential functions in the body, including blood clot formation and the release of growth factors that help to heal wounds. These growth factors stimulate the stem cells to produce new host tissue as quickly as possible, which is why platelet rich plasma is so effective in the post-treatment healing process.
There are several ways in which PRP can be used in clinical dentistry:
Bone Grafting For Implants – This includes closure of a cleft lip and cleft palate deformities, sinus lifts, ridge augmentation, and both inlay and onlay grafts.
Bone Repair – PRP can be used in facial trauma reconstruction, repairing of defects due to tooth removal, or the removal of growths and cysts.
Fistula Repair – This includes the repair of fistulas between the mouth and the sinus cavity.
Platelet rich plasma application is now widely used to expedite the post-procedure healing process and is completely safe. Since the blood used will come from the patient’s own body, disease transmission is not a factor. Almost all patients report a much greater degree of comfort immediately after their procedure. There are also several more distinct advantages of PRP:
Lower Infection Risk – PRP is smeared thickly on the wound after the procedure by the dentist and actually seals the wound away from infectious agents, lowering the risk of problems. Accelerated Healing – The saturation of the wound with PRP helps increase tissue synthesis due to its growth factors, and this in turn results in faster tissue regeneration. Speedier healing decreases the risk of later infections, complications, and discomfort. Safety and Convenience – Disease transmission is non-issue since the blood is harvested from the patient’s own blood supply. The amount of blood needed is small and can be collected during a routine outpatient procedure.
The dentist will initially assess if your candidate for PRP treatment. Patients with blood clotting disorders will be unable to take advantage of this treatment. A small (about 2 oz) sample of your blood will be collected during a scheduled outpatient treatment. The blood will be placed into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. A second centrifuge will be used to concentrate the platelets which contain the growth factor.
Immediately after suturing the wound, the dentist will apply the PRP to the surgical area in a high concentration. This will expedite your healing and decrease the amount of discomfort following the surgery. The dentist will provide aftercare instructions pertaining to the surgery and a prescription for pain medication as required.
