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:

Root amputation is a specialized dental procedure, whereby one root is removed from a multi-root tooth. The tooth is then stabilized and rendered fully functional with a crown or filling. The multi-root teeth best suited to the root amputation procedure are the molars at the back of the mouth. These large flat teeth have either two or three roots depending on whether they are situated on the upper or lower jaw.
The general purpose of root amputation is to save an injured or diseased tooth from extraction. Most dentists agree that there is no better alternative than retaining a healthy natural tooth, and the root amputation procedure makes this possible. Dental implants, extensive bridgework and custom-made tooth replacements can be expensive and time-consuming. Generally, root amputation and the necessary crown work are less expensive and can be completed in 1-3 short visits.
It is important to note that root amputation can only be performed on an otherwise healthy tooth. Even in the case of a “key” tooth, extraction will be performed if the tooth is diseased, badly fractured or otherwise injured. Suitable teeth for root amputation have a healthy tooth surface, strong bone support and healthy underlying gums.
There are several problems that may lead to root amputation including:
Prior to root amputation, it is necessary to perform root canal treatment. The amputation itself involves cutting deep into the tooth where blood vessels and nerves are located. For this reason, the pulp of the tooth including these vessels and nerves needs to be removed before resectioning the roots. The root canal and amputation treatments will be performed under local anesthetic.
During the root amputation procedure, a small incision will be created in the gum to fully expose the roots of the affected tooth. The root will be sectioned off from the rest of the tooth and then removed. To kill any remaining bacteria, the whole area will be cleansed with saline solution, and then sutures (stitches) will be applied to seal the incision.
Finally, a temporary crown or filling will be placed to secure the tooth. Depending on the specific situation, painkillers, antibiotics and a medicated anti-microbial mouthwash may be prescribed. In 7-10 days, the stitches will be removed and the gum will have healed. Arrangements can now be made to place the permanent crown or filling.
If you have any questions or concerns about root amputation, please ask your dentist.
