The All-on-4 Treatment Process: Streamline Your New Smile

Teeth In A Day relies on dental implants to support a bridge. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into a patient’s jaw. In the months following placement, the surrounding bone tissue fuses with the dental implant, rendering it a fixture in the jaw.

Because only four dental implants are necessary for Teeth In A Day, the placement procedure takes just a few hours. We can use our unique 3-D printing capability to create a bridge for you while you are in our office. You leave the appointment with a fully restored smile.

The dental implants used in All-on-4 are specially designed for this unique treatment approach. They are slightly smaller than standard dental implants to allow for faster healing after placement. They also are angled underneath the gumline to better support the weight of the rear portion of the bridge.

All-on-4 Is Accessible To Patients In Many Situations

Having adequate bone tissue for osseointegration is paramount to the long-term success of dental implants. As such, bone loss can sometimes be a barrier to dental implant placement. Teeth In A Day overcomes this potential challenge by maximizing available bone tissue.

Bone loss does occur after tooth loss, but the tissue that erodes most quickly is at the rear of the jaw, underneath the sinus cavity where there is less bone, to begin with. All-on-4 calls for dental implant placement at the front of the jaw, where the bone is thicker and wears away more gradually.

Therefore, patients who have experienced significant bone loss at the rear of the jaw can still be eligible for All-on-4 if they have sufficient bone tissue in the front of their smiles. The vast majority of patients qualify for All-on-4 treatment, and we can offer supplemental bone grafting when needed.

All-on-4 Outperforms Conventional Bridges

The compressed treatment timeframe is just one of the many benefits associated with Teeth In A Day. Because the tooth replacement consists of both a root-like structure and artificial crowns, this approach has numerous advantages over standard bridges, including the following:

Longevity

Dental implants prevent further jawbone atrophy. The jaw’s contour does not change, and the appliance retains its fit for decades.

Security

Dental implants are far more effective than denture adhesives at holding an appliance in place, preventing untimely denture slip-ups.

Convenience

Teeth In A Day offers easy maintenance for both wear and cleaning of the appliance.

Comfort

Teeth In A Day are structured more like natural teeth so they feel more like natural teeth. You may forget you’re even wearing a bridge!

Functionality

The bond between bone and implants helps Teeth In A Day to chew more effectively by tolerating fairly strong forces.

Common All-On-4 Questions:

How long will my recovery take? When can I return to work or my normal routine?

Teeth In A Day patients typically can return to work or school within days of having the dental implants placed. If your job involves vigorous physical activity, you will need a few extra days off, as this can interfere with healing. Keep in mind that avoiding postoperative complications is essential to maintaining your routine, so you should closely follow our instructions for home care to reduce the risk of any issues.

How long do All-On-4 implants last?

When you take care of them properly, All-on-4 implants can last for decades. However, uncontrolled gum disease can threaten the stability of dental implants, so you must practice good oral hygiene habits and follow up for routine dental care as recommended to prevent gum disease. If you have any questions about caring for your All-on-4 implants, don’t hesitate to ask one of our qualified, knowledgeable staff members.

What’s the All-On-4 dental implant procedure like?

The All-on-4 dental implant procedure involves making an incision in the gum and creating room in the jaw to insert the implants. The implant sites are then stitched closed, and the patient is fitted with an appliance before leaving our office. The entire procedure takes just a matter of hours. We also offer sedation and anesthesia options for maximum comfort for patients during the All-on-4 procedure. Patients who receive anesthesia must arrange for a responsible adult to escort them home, as it will not be safe to drive after the appointment.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss because they are structurally complete, consisting of an artificial root and crown. No other tooth replacement alternative replicates the root of the missing tooth, and that structure plays an important role in the stability and functionality of your smile.

WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

For many patients, wisdom teeth extraction is the first experience with oral surgery. This procedure is so common because many patients have jaws that are too small for their large third molars to erupt properly. As such, they must be removed in surgical extraction.
