Missing teeth can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life, self-confidence, as well as their ability to eat and speak comfortably.  Advances in dental technology have made it easier to restore your smile and function with implant-supported dentures. One of the most popular options for this procedure is the All-On-Four or All-On- X method, which uses a minimum of four strategically placed dental implants to support a fixed or non-removable prosthesis.  The “x” leaves the option to place more than four implants due to your anatomy and functional needs.   

If you’re missing teeth, implant-supported dentures, or prosthetics are a fantastic and transformational option.  Traditional dentures rely on adhesives and suction to try to stay in place.  Implant-supported dentures, or prosthetics are anchored to the dental implants.

To ensure the success of this procedure, it’s essential to choose a qualified dental professional specializing in implant dentistry.  Choosing the highly skilled dental professional for your implant-supported denture procedure is crucial to ensuring a successful outcome.  The team at North Georgia Smiles has over 60 years of experience with dental implants and have a history of lecturing and treatment globally.  This offers you the confidence we can provide you the highest level of care and expertise for your implant-supported procedure.

Fixed implant-supported prosthetics, or teeth offer many benefits. Here are just a few:

  1.  Improved Appearance:  The prostheses look and feel like natural teeth. They provide a more youthful appearance and a natural smile that boosts self-confidence.
  2. Increased Functionality: These teeth allow for better chewing and speech capabilities than traditional dentures due to being fixed to the implants in the bone.  The prostheses are secure and allow you to bite into foods without worrying about slippage or movement.  You can freely order from menus at restaurants in public with others.
  3. Enhanced Oral Health: The implant-supported teeth preserve the jawbone’s integrity and promote oral health. Unlike traditional dentures that can lead to bone loss and sagging of  facial structures.
  4. Durable and Long-lasting: This treatment option is highly predictable with proper care, can last a lifetime, eliminating the need for costly denture replacements.

When considering implant-supported prosthetics, exploring the benefits and finding the right dental professional to ensure a positive, predictable experience and a beautiful, functional smile is essential.  With the right dentist, patients can rest assured that they are in good hands, with access to the most advanced technologies available. The All-On-Four implant-supported denture procedure is safe and minimally invasive, with minimal discomfort and a short recovery period. 

Drs. Leo and Cibirka have over 60 years of experience at the forefront of dental implant technology, trained hundreds of dentists globally, and have helped a multinational array of patients regain their smiles and function.  Our team remains committed to staying current with the latest techniques and equipment to provide our patients with the most advanced dental care.

Modern technology has made implant placement more precise and efficient.  Our office uses the latest scan procedures and CT scan technology to ensure your dental implants are placed correctly. This technology allows to plan your procedure to the smallest detail, ensuring your new teeth are perfectly aligned and functional.  In addition to precise implant placement, the modern technology allows faster healing times and reduced patient discomfort. Because the procedure is so precise, there is less damage to the surrounding tissues and bones, leading to quicker recovery times.

But perhaps the most impressive aspect of the technology behind the implant-supported teeth is the ability for patients to leave our office with a complete set of teeth on the same day as their procedure. This is made possible through precise planning, expert placement, and advanced manufacturing techniques that allow us to create a set of custom teeth that fit perfectly with your newly placed dental implants.

This comprehensive dental implant treatment allows you to expect the following:

  1. Consultation: You’ll meet with us to discuss your dental health, needs, and goals.  We will carefully evaluate your dental health, X-rays, and necessary scans to integrate with your goals.
  2.  Treatment Plan: After this assessment, we will create a customized treatment plan that outlines the number of implants needed and the location of the implants.
  3. Pre-Operative Preparation: Before the surgery, you may receive sedation medication or local anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
  4. Implant Placement: Using advanced surgical techniques, we will place the dental implants into your jawbone at specific locations. Then we will then attach an abutment or connector to each implant to securely holding the teeth.
  5. Placement of Teeth: We will place a temporary set of teeth on the implants immediately so you can leave the office with a functioning set of teeth.
  6. Healing Period: After the implants are placed, your jawbone will need time to heal and fuse with the implants. This process, called osseointegration, usually takes around three to six months.
  7. Placement of Permanent Teeth: Once the implants have fully fused with your jawbone, we will replace the temporary teeth with permanent ones custom-fit to your mouth.

Overall, the All-On-Four, or All-On-X implant procedure offers a fast, efficient, and effective solution to missing teeth. If you are considering dental implants, choose a dentist who is highly experienced in this procedure. With the right care, your teeth will provide you with a beautiful, functional, and long-lasting smile.
