Teeth in a Day

Teeth in a Day

For patients who are missing all or most of their teeth, the All-on-4® treatment concept, or Teeth In A Day, may provide a comprehensive solution.

All-on-4® is a specialized method of restoring a full arch, using implants as supports. Offering many advantages over traditional dentures, this unique implant solution allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors.” Because two of the four implants are specially designed to be placed at an angle in the jaw, even patients with diminished jawbones may be eligible for this treatment option.

Two anterior implants are placed vertically and two posterior implants are placed at an angle to take advantage of the existing bone density. This allows the prosthesis, which is fixed to the implants, to be held in place more securely than a traditional denture and using fewer implants than other full arch restorations.

All-on-4® implant surgical placement and prosthetic attachment can often be completed in a single day. Patients can often leave the same day with a full arch of teeth, reducing both overall cost and healing time for the patient.
