Are you considering dental implants? The All-on-4 dental implant process is a revolutionary new approach to dentures and eliminates practically all of the recurring maintenance typically associated with traditional dentures.
Hear from board-certified oral surgeon Dr. Mykle Jacobs as he shares some of the benefits of All-on-4 restoration, and how you can achieve a beautiful new smile in one day!
Patients who have lost all of their teeth or require a complete row to be extracted should consider the option of All-on-4 implant-retained dentures. Patients with significant bone loss might not be the best fit for conventional implants, but with strategic placement, All-on-4 dental implants can provide a solution previously unavailable.
Before undergoing the smile-in-a-day procedure, any existing oral health issues like gum disease must be addressed, as they could jeopardize the success of the implants. It’s also crucial to discuss habits such as tobacco use with your oral surgeon, as these habits can impact the restoration process.
Thanks to their numerous advantages, we often recommend All-on-4 implants over traditional dentures. The biggest benefit compared to traditional dentures or dental implants is that for most, the procedure can be completed in just one day! Because the prosthetic teeth are permanently attached to the posts, you don’t need to remove them for cleaning or rely on adhesives. Many patients find that implants end up feeling like their natural teeth, and they can continue eating their favorite meals thanks to the chewing power the posts provide. Finally, the implants should help prevent further bone loss in your jaw and help support your facial features.
Here, we perform nothing but complex surgical procedures that dramatically impact smiles, and it’s normal for our patients to feel a little anxious about it. But you don’t have to worry! We genuinely want our patients to have a productive, comfortable, and beneficial experience, which means that we go above and beyond at every step of the process from start to finish. Our team is ready to answer your questions and help you get a better understanding of the implant process.
The All-on-4 teeth in a day procedure is often less painful than most patients expect. The reason for this is that there are no nerve endings inside the bone, which means that you won’t feel pain in that area. Most of the discomfort or soreness comes from the manipulation of the gum tissue, where the nerves are located. In fact, the soreness typically lasts for just a few days, not weeks.
The majority of our patients find that over-the-counter (OTC) medication is sufficient to manage any discomfort. It’s important to note that nerves are primarily inside the teeth, not within the bones. On average, patients may need pain medication for the first 2-3 days after the procedure, but they are usually off pain medication within a week or even sooner. So, while there may be some soreness, the procedure is generally not as painful as one might imagine.
The All-on-4 procedure is an investment in your oral health and overall well-being. The benefits it brings to your personality, confidence, and quality of life are truly priceless. People with healthy teeth often take these advantages for granted. Living with missing or damaged teeth can significantly impact your daily life, hindering your ability to eat what you want, smile with confidence, and engage in meaningful conversations.
The cost of a full mouth All-on-4 procedure varies based on a number of factors. We offer financing options through Proceed Finance, and the best part is that pre-qualification for this financing does not affect your credit score. Many of our patients discover that they can achieve an affordable and reasonable monthly payment plan, making this life-changing procedure accessible to a broader range of individuals. Remember, this investment in your oral health can lead to a higher quality of life and a brighter future.
The All-on-4 dental procedure offers a remarkable way to transform your smile in just one day. This process starts with a surgical procedure where you receive a beautiful set of ‘temporary’ teeth in a single day. Over the next few months, the bone in your jaw integrates with the titanium implants, and your gum tissue settles, possibly requiring minor adjustments. The All-on-4 procedure is highly customizable, allowing you to address both upper and lower jaws in one session or one at a time, depending on your unique needs.
One of the key advantages of this procedure is its ability to eliminate the need for traditional dental work like crowns, bridges, or fillings, simplifying your dental care routine. Patients often find that their diet and overall quality of life improve significantly with their new teeth, as they can comfortably enjoy a wider variety of foods.
