One of the most effective ways to permanently replace one or more missing teeth is to use dental implants. Available from our experienced dentists, All-on-4™ – Teeth in a Day is an innovative technique for replacing all upper and/or lower teeth using dental implants. This method can significantly reduce treatment time while maintaining a high-quality outcome. With so many benefits, many patients wonder, how does it work?
All-on-4™ works in a very similar way as traditional dental implants. The difference is that Teeth in a Day utilizes four strategically positioned anchor posts to hold one collective restoration, rather than placing a dedicated implant for each replaced tooth. Precision is key for this treatment, and our state-of-the-art technology helps to make this method effective. The two-piece implants consist of a post, placed through the gum and into the jaw, and the bar that connects to the restoration on top. The implants and restoration can be placed in a single visit. Once the pieces are in, you will have to use some caution when eating and chewing while the bone heals and fuses with the appliance. After about six weeks, function should be fully restored and you can enjoy your beautiful new smile the same way you would your natural teeth.
All-on-4™ offers an excellent alternative to removable dentures. In addition to providing results in one day, you no longer have to worry about having an artificial appliance slip in your mouth, fit uncomfortably, or require a high-maintenance hygiene routine. Dental implants, just like natural teeth, should simply be brushed and flossed daily.
