What Are Your Options

If you’re considering dental implants to replace missing teeth, Merrifield Smiles in Falls Church, VA offers a variety of options to suit your unique needs and goals. Prosthodontist Mustafa Al-Karagholi, DDS, provides advanced dental implant procedures to restore your smile’s functionality and appearance.

Here are some of the dental implant options you can explore:

Comparing Fixed Teeth vs. Dentures

Before choosing dental implants, you’ll need to decide whether you want fixed teeth or dentures. Fixed teeth are permanent and provide better stability and bone preservation than dentures. Dentures, however, are removable and more comfortable for some patients.



This dental implant system is ideal for those who need to replace multiple missing teeth. With All-On-4®, only four dental implants support a full arch of replacement teeth. This option is cost-effective, minimally invasive, and offers a more stable and long-lasting solution compared to traditional dentures.

With All-On-4®, you can enjoy multiple benefits, including:

Faster treatment and recovery time

Improved speech and chewing ability

Enhanced facial aesthetics and self-esteem

Long-lasting, durable results

Acrylic Overdenture - Removable and Fixed

This dental implant option involves attaching a removable or fixed denture to dental implants. An acrylic overdenture is a more affordable and less invasive alternative to traditional fixed bridges or full-mouth restorations.

Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures:

More stable and secure than traditional dentures

Reduced bone loss and gum recession

Improved oral health and hygiene

Increased comfort and function

Teeth-In-A-Day Options

This revolutionary dental implant procedure allows you to receive a full arch of replacement teeth in just one day. Teeth-In-A-Day involves placing a temporary set of teeth on your dental implants immediately after the surgery. Once your implants have healed, your prosthodontist will replace them with permanent teeth.

The advantages of Teeth-In-A-Day implants include:

Fast, convenient treatment

Reduced discomfort and pain

Improved oral health and hygiene

More natural-looking and functional teeth
