Your New Teeth: Options for Full Arch Dental Implants

Whether you’re missing a single tooth or looking to restore a full arch, dental implants may be the best treatment option to complete your smile. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants replace the root system of the tooth for a complete, natural looking and feeling dental restoration. If you’d like to find out more, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Loetscher and the team at Atlanta Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to schedule a dental implant consultation.

Are Dental Implants Better than Other Tooth Replacement Options?

They can be for many patients. Dental implants offer natural stability and they even look, feel, and function more like the lost tooth structure. Some of the benefits of dental implant-retained tooth replacement include:

  • Natural looking and feeling
  • Preserved gum tissue volume and bone density
  • Improved function compared with traditional prosthetics
  • Longer lasting
  • No impact on healthy oral structures

What Are My Options for Full Arch Dental Implants?

Your doctor will consult with you to determine the best options for you when it comes to dental implants. Whether you elect to go with a “fixed” implant that is screwed into place or an overdenture that can snap on and off, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. The video below, created and narrated by Dr. Loetscher, will provide a brief overview of dental implant options and the materials used to create your permanent set of teeth.

The New Age of Digital Dentistry: Full Arch Tooth Replacement

In this modern era of automation, the most esthetic teeth are digitally designed and made for both strength and esthetics.  Automation has provided for a remarkable reduction in the cost of producing highly esthetic prosthetic teeth.  The Atlanta Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery S2 Digital Dental Lab has one of the finest mills (machines to fabricate prosthetic teeth) in the world – Zirkonzahn’s M4. This high tech piece of machinery is manufactured in Italy and able to make stunningly beautiful teeth.

The S2 Digital Dental Lab is one of the few labs in the US where your implant can be placed by an experienced Oral Surgeon, allowing you to leave with a beautiful digitally designed tooth to match your smile and facial esthetics.

Combining over 30 years of experience, our lab technicians are truly elite in their field, with Larry widely being considered one of the best digital design lab technicians in the area.

“Organic” Smile Design

A major advancement in dental esthetics has been the recognition that nature makes the most beautiful teeth, not lab technicians. Utilizing what we now called “Natural Smile Design”, we are able to choose from libraries of beautiful teeth with nature’s irregularities built into them, such as tiny dents and rotations. They look beautiful to the eye because of nature’s way of breaking up light reflections. Even though they are false teeth, they have a natural and “organic” look.

Dr. Loetscher and his lab technician Larry are both certified in the “Digital Smile Design” protocol, as championed and taught by Christian Coachman.

For more on the digital design process from start to finish, take a look at the video below, narrated by Dr. Christian Loetscher.

Dental Implants: A New Arch of Teeth in One Day

Do you:

  • Worry about breaking a tooth?
  • Have painful teeth or gum disease?
  • Have loose teeth?
  • Have gaps in between your teeth?
  • Have poor confidence in your smile?

As we age, our teeth age like the rest of our body. Even with proper dental care, often times your teeth need to be replaced over time from wear and other factors. Technology and dentistry have advanced significantly in recent years and we can replace failing teeth in 24 hours or less, providing you with a beautiful set of teeth
designed for esthetics, function, and lifelong service.

When a patient has lost or is about to lose a whole arch of teeth, the treatment of choice is often full arch dental implants. Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement in dentistry today, holding the most advantages in function and esthetics by mimicking teeth, from root to crown. Most full arch implant protocols require patients to spend months in less-than-ideal temporary dentures as the implants heal before they can receive their final teeth. At our practice, we have developed a full-arch protocol that lets you walk out of our office the day of surgery with a complete new set of strong, esthetic temporary teeth that function just as well as your final prosthesis will.
