ALL ON 4 DENTAL IMPLANTS

Get your dental implants Johns Creek, Dr. Egolum is a Board Certified Oral Surgeon and has placed over 1000 dental implants. At our State of the Art Facility we are often able to place dental implants in the same day, using the most recent advances in Dental Implant Technology. We are one of the few offices on the United States that offer Xnav Technology. This technology utilizes a gps tracking device that allows us to visualize the nerves, sinus, teeth roots as well as the precise angulation and depth of implants in real time while placing them. This improves accuracy and minimizes injury to vital structures. Our patients enjoy safety and comfort with our anesthesia options such as IV sedation and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas). We know how important your smile is to you so we offer quick, same day consultations, financing options and top notch customer service. Whether you need a single tooth implant replacement or full mouth dental implants call us to schedule a consultation 770-764-0840.

We also offer TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ which is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes about an hour. This technology was developed by Nobel Biocare and utilizes collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the oral surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. We also offer computer-guided implant surgery which can be done without requiring any flap reflection or minimal flap reflection. This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day. Our patients have the added benefit of anesthesia/sedation for maximum comfort. There are multiple different options that we can offer depending on each patient’s need and price point. We can off the traditional Implant Over-Denture or Snap On denture where 4 or more implants are placed after all the teeth are removed and a denture can be snapped on. We also offer ALL on 4, 3 on 6 as well as Implant retained bridges for ALL on X which is multiple implants bridged together. For more advanced cased Zygomatic implants where implants are engaging the cheek bone or Pterygoid implants are available. To discuss your specific case or to ask about price/cost or financing please call our office to schedule a consultation 770-764-0840.

The process begins when a (3D Xray) CT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone along with a digital impression of the teeth and gums. This CT scan and digital impression allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone and teeth that can then be used with our virtual software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.

Key Advantages:

  • Increased Safety: The collaboration between restorative doctors and oral surgeons enhances safety during the procedure.
  • Precise Implant Placement: The merging of knowledge leads to more accurate implant placement.
  • Pre-Fabricated Prosthesis: The final prosthesis is fabricated before surgery, streamlining the process.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants offer a permanent solution, surgically attaching implants into the jaw to provide a fixed, natural-looking, and fully functional set of teeth.

Procedure Overview:

  1. Implant Placement: Four dental implants are permanently placed in the jawbone, supporting a full bridge or denture.
  2. Tilted Implants: Two implants in the back are tilted to offer additional support without the need for bone graft surgery.
  3. Titanium Posts: The posts, made of titanium, promote healing and serve as a stable foundation for the denture.
  4. Temporary Denture: A temporary denture is placed during the healing phase, ensuring functionality.
  5. Permanent Denture: Once fully healed, a custom-made permanent denture is attached to the implants.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Implants

  • Number of Implants: All-on-4 requires only four implants per dental arch, while traditional implants may need up to 10.
  • Bone Grafting: Traditional implants may require bone grafting, while All-on-4 can often be performed without it.

3-on-6 Dental Implants

3-on-6 dental implants offer a permanent solution, surgically attaching implants into the jaw to provide a fixed, natural-looking, and fully functional set of teeth very much like All on 4 the difference lies in the details.

Procedure Overview:

  1. Implant Placement: Six dental implants are permanently placed in the jawbone, supporting 3 separate bridges from lateral to lateral and canine to 2nd molar.
  2. Parallel Implants: All six implants are usually placed parallel to each other for additional support without the need for bone graft surgery.
  3. Titanium Posts: The posts, made of titanium, promote healing and serve as a stable foundation for the bridges typically made of zirconia.
  4. Temporary Denture: A temporary bridges are placed during the healing phase to help mold the underlying gingival tissues, ensuring proper esthetics.
  5. Permanent Denture: Once fully healed, three custom-made permanent bridges are attached to the implants.

Zygomatic Implants

Zygomatic Implants offer a solution for individuals seeking dental implants to secure fixed teeth but facing significant bone loss in the upper jaw.

We can strategically place these implants and subsequently attach a fixed bridge either on the same day or the following day. This immediate set of teeth typically comprises a complete set securely fastened onto the implants. We custom-design the bridge to harmonize with your facial features, ensuring an instantly beautiful smile. The entire process is carried out in our surgical center, with the procedure performed while you comfortably undergo general anesthesia.

Contrary to common belief, many individuals who are told they are ineligible for dental implants due to a lack of bone can benefit from Zygomatic Implants. These implants are specially designed, longer than standard implants, and are anchored in the dense bone of the cheekbones (Zygoma) to provide support for upper teeth and bridges.

Pterygoid Implants

Pterygoid implants are specifically crafted for placement in the dense bone located at the rear of the upper jaw, known as the Pterygoid plates. This particular bone is frequently employed in conjunction with Zygoma Implants. Pterygoid implants offer supplementary support for individuals experiencing a deficiency of bone in the upper jaw (maxilla).

Advantages OF ALL thESE OPTIONS Over Traditional Dentures

Fixed implant retained bridges/dentures offer significant advantages over traditional dentures:

  • Stability: Firmly attached to the jaw, eliminating instability and discomfort.
  • Preservation of Bone Mass: Helps maintain the shape of your face by preserving bone mass.
  • Easy Maintenance: Easy to clean and care for, just like natural teeth.
