At Dazzling Smiles, we know how important it is to have an attractive, healthy, and functioning smile. This is why we want to help patients avoid the transition to dentures. Traditional dentures may require that patients have all their teeth extracted and then go for a period without them (or with ill-fitted temporary dentures). To us, this is not an option, and we instead may recommend a treatment known as Teeth in a Day.
Dr. Michaela McKenzie of the Atlanta, GA area encourages patients to educate themselves on the advantages of using Teeth in a Day services, also known as All-on-Four.” This method of replacing missing teeth is done in just one appointment after the initial consultation and x-rays, and allows patients to have their teeth extracted, dental implants placed, and their new denture completed in one appointment.
The first step is to find out if patients are appropriate candidates for Teeth in a Day; this may require a series of x-rays to check the bone structure and a physical examination of the existing teeth. Patients will then book an appointment for their treatment and then arrive ready to address their imperfect smiles.Dr. Michaela McKenzie will perform any necessary extractions before she places mini dental implants in the jawbone with strategic precision. Once the implants are in place, she will insert the dentures, which are custom-made based on specifications from the patients and the artistry of our dental team.
These dentures snap into placed using the dental implants for stability and strength. This method is highly desirable over traditional dentures because the implants provide unsurpassed results.
Dr. Michaela McKenzie and the team at Dazzling Smiles are proud to offer Teeth in a Day. We recommend that patients considering full replacement of their smile contact our team of professionals first to see if this restorative solution is the most appropriate for their needs. We can walk patients through the process, determine if they are viable candidates, and perform the procedure from start to finish.
