SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Board-certified periodontist Dr. Jin Y.
Per figures from the American College of Prosthodontics, about 36 million individuals countrywide have no remaining teeth. While nine out of 10 have dentures to allow them to speak and eat, dentures can be fraught with problems. For instance, many people who have removable denture appliances complain of dentures falling out, clicking, fitting inappropriately and looking unnatural. Additionally, certain foods are not compatible with dentures, which can create nutritional deficiencies and social embarrassment for denture wearers.
To combat these problems and provide a long-term and convenient solution, Dr. Kim regularly works with patients interested in being considered for All-on-4 dental implants. The All-on-4 system involves surgical placement of four dental implant posts at strategic points throughout the edentulous jaw. After placement, a permanent denture prosthetic is locked into place, anchored by the posts. The prosthetic offers a lifelike appearance and fully restored function for the patient.
Dr. Kim relies on a variety of leading-edge processes and equipment to achieve exceptional results when placing All-on-4 dental implants. This includes computer-guided placement, a process that reduces the likelihood of errors and increases the overall success of the procedure. In addition to All-on-4 dental implants, the periodontist also offers tooth extractions, bone grafting and other leading-edge solutions.
