One of the most popular procedures we see patients for at the Oral and Facial Surgeons of Arizona office is the technologically advanced Teeth in a Day or All-on-4® implant technique. Unlike older methods, this cutting edge procedure allows us to remove deteriorating teeth and insert fully functional dental implants capable of supporting dentures in just one day. Additionally, because the implants are fixed to your mouth, you never have to worry about them sliding out during eating or conversation. If time or comfort is a priority, the All-on-4 procedure may be for you.
How the Teeth in a Day Procedure Works
Traditional dental implants and dentures can take several appointments over the course of many months to insert and set. While these conventional implants are just as effective, many patients do not want to wait several months to have functional results, especially if they are also being fitted for dentures. The Teeth in a Day procedure is possible because it relies on only four implant sites in your mouth. Not only does this keep treatment time down, it minimizes pain as well. When you come in for treatment, we’ll remove your old teeth, place dental implants, and provide you with a temporary set of implant-supported teeth all in the same day. You’ll receive your permanent set at your follow up appointment.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
With the All-on-4 technique, you can say goodbye to pastes and glues forever. Because these dentures are fixed to your mouth with permanent implants, they’ll never slide around or make any embarrassing noises. Other benefits include:
• Enhanced comfort due to stability
• Freedom to eat and talk without worrying that your dentures will fall out
• The appearance and function of natural teeth
• Minimal implants stem bone loss
• Easily removable for cleaning.
