For years, the typical way to replace a full arch of teeth in Atlanta was by getting a denture. But traditional dentures can sometimes be difficult to wear. They may feel bulky and can trigger a gag reflex, cover your taste buds, can be difficult to speak with, and loose enough that they fall out of place.
Luckily these days, there’s a newer and better way to replace teeth.
What Are All-On-4 Implants?
All-On-4 implants is a revolutionary technique that replaces all of the teeth on a single arch with the strategic placement of just four implants.
A special denture or bridge is made that consists of all the replacement teeth. Small holes throughout the appliance allow us to place “screws” in it that thread into the implants, attaching them permanently.
Should I Get an All-On-4 Bridge or Denture?
The type of restoration that’s used is up to you.
While an Atlanta implant denture is still made from the same type of teeth and acrylic as its traditional counterpart, the amount of material needed is far less, meaning the fit won’t be as bulky. For upper teeth, we can do away with the acrylic “plate” that covers the roof of your mouth, meaning you’ll even be able to taste your food better and speak more clearly.
This type of “extended bridge” (so to speak) will look more natural and feel the best.
Are All-on-4 Implants Worth It?
All-on-4 implants have the potential to last a lifetime and the other benefits are priceless. This treatment is definitely an investment worth making. Call Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta today to find out if you qualify for implant supported denture treatments.
