Denture and implant production: variety of dental plaster moulds and imprints with metal stock trays

The primary alternative to dental implants is the dental bridge. The dental bridge does not anchor into the gum or jaw like the dental implant. Instead, the bridge anchors to the healthy teeth that surround the gap left by the missing teeth. This alternative to implants generally lasts 5 to 10 years. It provides the patient natural appearing and fully functional teeth. Properly fitted and expertly crafted by an AIDA prosthodontist, a dental bridge is a comfortable and long-lasting alternative to dental implants. The dental bridge also prevents dental shifting, TMJ and the decay of the teeth that are left in the mouth.

The dental bridge can be made of gold, porcelain and metal alloy. There are three different styles of dental bridges. Each style is used in a different place in the mouth. The different styles of dental bridges are also used to overcome the various challenges of the mouth. These alternatives to dental implants are created by experienced dentists. They range in cost, depending on the condition of the mouth and the number of teeth that are missing.

Removable Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are great removable alternatives to dental implants when there are enough healthy teeth remaining in the mouth. They are not as common as the dental bridge but are easy to care for and remove. Partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more aesthetic than metal clasps, and they are nearly invisible. Crowns on your natural teeth may improve the fit of a removable partial denture, and they are usually required with attachments. Dentures with precision attachments generally cost more than those with metal clasps.

Not all patients are good candidates for dental implants, but everyone should have a nice smile and the functionality of all their teeth. If you are missing teeth, contact Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta to discuss your options for replacement teeth.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
