As the CDC’s recent report on adult oral health reveals that nearly one in five adults aged 65 and up have lost all their teeth, Millennium Smiles announces a new All-On-4 dental implant treatment for Frisco’s elderly population.

The dental practice, which has two locations in Frisco, can help seniors with both partial and full teeth loss. “Dental implants are the most secure and natural-feeling replacement solution, which can be used for a single missing tooth, a few teeth, or entire upper or lower set,” explains lead dentist Dr. Dunia Korous.
Millennium Smiles recommends the procedure for seniors who wish to replace one or more teeth, and have a reasonably healthy jawbone and gums.
Dental implants consist of a small titanium rod, which is implanted into the jawbone; an abutment, which holds the tooth in place; and a crown, a porcelain or zirconium prosthetic tooth which looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth. Implants have significant benefits over other teeth replacement procedures. For instance, the medical-grade titanium used to create the implants is bio-friendly and encourages bone to fuse around the implant. Further, since these titanium rods function as teeth roots, they improve blood flow to the deep tissues and jawbone.
“Patients who are considering dental implants as a solution for missing teeth, should know that dental implants require oral surgery,” explains Dr. Korous. “Once implants are placed into the jawbone, it takes several months for them to naturally fuse with the jawbone. Only then can the crown be fixed to the abutment.”
Along with standard dental implant treatment, Millennium Smiles offers All-On-4 dental implants, which are designed to make the treatment more comfortable and affordable for patients who need to replace all their teeth. With All-On-4 implants, the entire upper or lower set of teeth can be supported with only four implants placed in the jawbone.
