The NEW ALL-ON-4 dental implant procedure is an innovative technique designed to give you an entire arch of brand new, natural looking teeth in one sitting. Rather than submerging one titanium implant for each missing tooth, the ALL-ON-4 procedure uses only 4 implants secured to the lower or upper jawbone. The implants are then used to attach a full prosthetic arch of new replacement teeth. This way, the implants preserve the structural integrity of your jawbone by minimizing gaps produced from missing teeth. You'll look and feel younger instantly.

A dental bridge is a fixed appliance placed in the mouth when one or more teeth are missing. Usually, the false teeth are anchored to the healthy abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges can last for decades but at some point, they may require repair or replacement.

A typical denture uses your soft gum tissue for support. Over time, bone loss will occur and the denture itself will become unstable and uncomfortable. In addition to this, the jaw structure often deteriorates and denture wearers experience ongoing bone loss. Denture wearers are often forced to adopt softer diets, because they just can't eat or crunch the foods they previously enjoyed. Take apples for instance... are you eating a whole apple or applesauce?

All-ON-4 dental implants refer to an advanced dental surgery procedure that uses specifically designed dental implants to provide strong anchors for replacement teeth. In 90% of all cases, the ALL-ON-4 Dental Implant procedure is graftless. That's because dental implant techniques are used that eliminate the need for bone grafting or other surgical procedures. ALL-ON-4 Dental Implants are not only cost effective, they provide patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. ALL-ON-4 Dental Implants work for people who are missing the majority of their teeth.

What Is Dentophobia?
Dentophobia is defined as a fear of the dentist or dental procedures. The fear itself may be deeply rooted in a childhood memory triggered by the sights, sounds and smells of the dental office. In other situations, a patient may put off dental care because they have a strong gag reflex, hate needles or have super-sensitive teeth. We can help!
At AXIS Dental Group, we pride ourselves on our ability to empathize with people that experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness when visiting the Dentist. That's why we offer Sedation Dentistry, also called Sleep Dentistry.

Gum and Bone Disease: Periodontics in dentistry is focused on the supporting structures around the tooth, such as gums, bone and connective tissues as well as the illnesses and diseases associated with these areas of your mouth. At AXIS Dental Group, we have a Periodontist on staff that specializes in periodontics.
How Gum Disease Starts: The bacteria in our mouth along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless plaque on teeth. Brushing and flossing helps to get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form tartar. Only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar, using special instruments.
