All-On-4® Implants – Teeth in a Day

One of the primary goals of our practice is to help patients who suffer from the many functional and aesthetic problems that accompany the loss of teeth. Implant-supported fixed “denture” hybrids offer an advanced way to address missing teeth and to correct some of the most common issues associated with traditional dentures. All-On-4 is a groundbreaking fixed hybrid teeth replacement technique designed to provide strength and stability to a custom dental prosthesis, ultimately helping you achieve results that enable you to eat your favorite foods, speak with greater ease, and show your smile without hesitation or self-consciousness.

All-On-4 implant-supported prosthesis treatments are often very complex, and it’s important to ensure you are being treated by skilled maxillofacial oral surgeons who have the experience and technology necessary to provide the best possible results. At Oral & Facial Surgeons of Arizona, our doctors have been performing implant procedures for many years and are committed to providing the highest level of care along with results that meet – and perhaps even exceed – your expectations.

What Are Implant-Supported Hybrid “Dentures”?

Implant-supported hybrid “dentures” involve a combination of dental implants and a custom dental appliance to replace multiple missing teeth. Sometimes referred to as implant-supported dentures or implant-anchored dentures, we prefer to use the terms “fixed hybrid” or “implant-supported prosthesis” since these restorations do not involve traditional types of dentures, and they are designed to eliminate many of the problems associated with conventional dentures. They do this by using dental implants to create a solid basis of support for the appliance, which can result in replacement teeth that function and appear more like natural teeth. A select number of implants will be anchored to the jawbone and the prosthesis will be securely placed on top of the implant posts to prevent movement and slippage along the gums. These options can often be ideal for patients who are missing all teeth on the upper and/or lower dental arches. This solution does not require the use of an implant for each missing tooth, and can often serve as an alternative for patients who may not be candidates for full sets of dental implants.

What Is All-On-4® Teeth In a Day?

All-On-4 is a technique that can help patients replace missing teeth on the upper and/or lower dental arches with secure and stable customized dental prostheses. The All-On-4 procedure utilizes just four dental implants for each arch. Strategically and meticulously placed in areas of the mouth that offer the best level of jawbone density, the four dental implants should ultimately fuse to the bone and continue providing a durable foundation for the dental appliance for many years to come. This can dramatically reduce the potential for slippage while eliminating the need for messy denture putties and pastes. All-On-4 is also known as the “Teeth In a Day” procedure since it can often provide patients with fully functional dental implants in just one day, without the need for bone grafting and numerous oral surgeries.

  • Eliminates the need for denture adhesives to prevent slippage along the gums
  • Bone grafting is typically not necessary
  • Patients are not as limited in terms of the types of food they can eat when compared to standard dentures
  • The dental implants are designed to provide lifetime results
  • Chewing, speaking, and the overall appearance of the smile can be significantly improved
  • Further bone loss in the jaw can be prevented
  • Renewed sense of self-confidence due to an improved smile, which can have an effect on one’s overall appearance
  • Improved oral function and better retention while eating since the hybrid prosthesis is fixed with implants
  • A shorter treatment period - All-On-4 implants can be placed in a single procedure, requiring fewer surgeries when compared to replacing each missing tooth with a dental implant

Please contact us today for a complimentary consultation to learn more about this advanced procedure. When you meet with one of our surgeons for your initial consultation, he will perform a full evaluation of your oral structures and talk with you about your needs and goals. If All-On-4 is an ideal option, a customized treatment plan will be created to provide you with results that yield a precise and comfortable fit while beautifully enhancing your smile.

What Does the All-On-4® Dental Implants Procedure Involve?

Once you have been evaluated and a customized All-On-4 dental implants treatment plan has been developed, the procedure can be scheduled. Our doctor will utilize advanced computer imaging software to create a detailed map of your oral structures, which will help him choose the best area to place the implants. The implants will be inserted into the gums and anchored to the jawbone in an extraordinarily precise way in order to give the prosthesis the strongest base of support possible, and to ensure a comfortable, natural fit. A temporary prosthesis can often be placed on top of the implants at this time, making this truly a “Teeth In a Day” procedure. Over the next several months, the implants should fuse to the jawbone, essentially becoming a permanent part of your mouth. Once this process is complete, the final customized prosthesis can be affixed to the implants and the treatment is complete.

 What Does the All-On-4® Dental Implants Procedure Involve?

All-On-4 dental implants can be utilized for replacement of full rows of missing teeth on the upper arch, the lower arch, or for both arches to create a full mouth restoration. If patients still have a few teeth left on either arch, our doctor can perform a tooth extraction procedure to prepare the areas for All-On-4 dental implant placement.

All-On-6

In some cases, typically in patients who have low jawbone density, four dental implants may not be quite enough to ensure full and complete support for the prosthesis. The All-On-6 technique may be more ideal in these circumstances. This treatment simply adds two more dental implants for each arch (upper and/or lower) in order to provide an even stronger foundation for the prosthesis.

How Much Do All-On-4® Dental Implants Cost?

The final cost of an All-On-4 dental implants procedure is ultimately dependent on each patient’s unique treatment plan. Some of the factors that are taken into account for the overall cost include the total number of implants that will be placed, whether any tooth extractions or other preliminary procedures are necessary, laboratory fees, the cost of the custom prosthesis, and other components. Once we have created your personalized treatment plan at the initial consultation, we will provide you with an estimate of the total cost of your procedure, including all associated expenses. A member of our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the many convenient payment methods we accept here at Oral & Facial Surgeons of Arizona.
