All-on-4 Dental Implants – Fixed Dentures in One Day

What if you could have a full set of teeth replaced in only one day? So many dental implant patients have to travel from office to office for various appointments, turning what could be a simple process into a long ordeal. For those who are from remote locations and look to metropolitan cities for their dental implant needs, this can be especially inconvenient. All-on-4 dental implants offer a one-day surgery solution for dental implant patients who are in need of a fixed denture.

All-on-4 is a dental implant solution that allows a fixed denture to be placed using only four dental implants. The way that the implants are placed eliminates the standard healing time that applies to other types of dental implants. Thus, the All-on-4 surgery procedure, when performed in an office with substantial staffing and resources, can be conducted in one day, making the drive for out-of-town patients a more reasonable option.

There are several parts of the All-on-4 process. For eligible candidates the surgery can be conducted in one day, but the procedure can be done in as few as two appointments.

  • Consultation – The initial visit where specific needs are addressed and a solution prescribed.
  • 3D CAT Scanning and Cone Beam Scanner – Through state-of-the art technology, the surgery is planned
  • Impressions – Where the proper molds are created for the dental implants to make the teeth for the patient.
  • Education – Education consultants provide feedback and information for each patient, in order to make certain proper care and upkeep are given post-surgery.
  • Surgery – The day of surgery the implants are placed and new teeth are attached to the dental implants.
  • A properly staffed facility will be able to conduct each of these parts of the process on-site, thus minimizing the number of trips the out-of-town patient must take. With on-site education consultants, a dental surgeon, and an implant dentist, the dental implant center that is properly staffed will be able to take a patient from the start to the finish of the surgery in one day.

    The All-on-4 is available to clients that after the initial consultation have shown to be eligible candidates. The procedure will not be available for those patients that will require bone grafting or another surgical procedure before implants can be placed.

    The initial consultation with the dental implant office will determine whether or not the patient is a candidate for the All-on-4 dental implant procedure.
