“All-On-4” Procedure a Cost- and Time-Effective Alternative
Mission Viejo, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/23/2013 -- Dr. Caplanis and South County Periodontics are announcing that they have begun offering “Teeth In A Day” service for patients with severe gum disease, decay or badly worn out teeth.
The procedure involves the removal of all the bad teeth and the placement of only 4 implants to support a complete set of permanent teeth usually in a single day. The procedure is often referred to as “All-On-4” due to the use of as few as four implants per jaw. For individuals with extremely neglected teeth the service is far more efficient than having teeth individually replaced, and the results look more uniform and often last longer. Additionally, the fact that the procedure is completed within a single day means that less time is lost to surgery and recovery.
Dr. Nicholas Caplanis is a double board certified specialist in implant dentistry and periodontics and the current President of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He and his staff at South County Periodontics and Implant Dentistry perform a full range of oral health services involving treatment to correct gum disease and other related problems as well as the replacement of missing teeth using state of the art titanium dental implants.
