All-on-4 Dental Implants

Are you missing all your teeth or are you about to? Or do you have a loose fitting denture? Having your teeth taken out is scary! What will my denture look like? Will I be able to eat? The truth is that people who have dentures can eat at about 30% of the efficiency that people with real teeth can. Dentures move, slip, rock, they can fall when you eat sticky foods. But thanks to advances in dental technology, Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat can offer you a new, reliable alternative. This is called an “All on 4” denture. This procedure uses 4 dental implants per jaw and a modified denture. The denture is held in using the implants and this gives you far more stability, allowing you to eat more things without the denture moving, slipping or rocking. No glues or adhesives needed! The result is a complete new smile that you’ll be so proud of and just as important, have faith in because it is permanently locked into place with no slipping or moving for better fit, function and appearance.

How does it work?

The “All on 4™″ technique is a solution for fixed (non removable) oral rehabilitation. It is recommended for patients who either have already lost all of their original adult teeth or are about to. So, if you wear or anticipate that you need full dentures, you could be a great candidate for All-on-4™ dental implants.The procedure itself is fairly simple. Dr. Gilreath or Dr. Nezafat will remove all of your old and failing teeth while you are under sedation, provided by an actual Anesthesiologist in our office. Then the doctors will place four titanium dental implants into the upper and/or lower jaw, depending on whether you need only one arch or both dental arches replaced. This is done using a very precise guide made exclusively for you. Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat use “Surgical Guides” to precisely position the implants. These guides are made by our office after the doctors plan the case using the latest digital technology. This approach has great benefits:

  • Allows the doctors to avoid all vital oral structures, such as the nerve canal in the lower jaw and sinus cavity in the upper jaw.
  • Gives the doctors the EXACT angulation and depth of the implant without having to “guess”.
  • Makes the surgery much faster for the patient.

By eliminating the need for bone grafting surgery, the “All-on-4” not only provides patients with a very direct route to oral rehabilitation – one that takes a single day instead of up to 18 months – but it also saves them tens of thousands of dollars on medical bills!

How does All on 4 compare to having individual implants for every tooth?

  • All on 4 only requires four implants per jaw (as opposed 6, 8 or even 10 per jaw).
  • All on 4 only requires a single surgery.
  • All on 4 typically avoids the need for bone grafting during surgery.
  • All on 4 typically has a much higher success rate.
  • All on 4 can usually be completed in a single day.
  • All on 4 can save patients patients tens of thousands of dollars while providing a similar, beautiful and highly function result.

How does All on 4 compare to regular dentures?

All on 4 is without a doubt the best solution for people needing to wear dentures. This is why Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat always recommend the “All-on-4™″ solution for their patients who need a denture. With this advanced technique for fixed oral rehabilitation, you need never worry about:

  • Your teeth slipping around or falling out
  • What you eat – sticky, hard, chewy–with the “All-on-4™″ you can eat what you want
  • A bulky denture that makes you gag
  • Decreased taste due to bulky dentures
  • Sore and sensitive gums
  • The need to use messy adhesives, glue, and cleaning solutions
  • Being anxious that you might have a denture accident during a social situation
  • Unnatural looking dentures

All-on-4™ dental implants typically provide a one time, long term solution to tooth loss caused by (gum) disease or rampant decay. They look, function and feel like natural teeth and support the health of the underlying jaw bone.

If you have been considering either dental implants or dentures for restoring your smile, All-on-4 dentures may be the right solution for you. Contact our office in Marietta to schedule a restorative dental consultation to learn about all the options available.

Susan

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
