What are Same Day Implants?

The All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows most patients to have all remaining teeth removed, implants inserted, and a gorgeous, fixed, functional smile delivered in a single day! This procedure has the ability not only to provide patients with a beautiful smile, but also give them a renewed outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, and fractured teeth. For them, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the perfect answer to obtain a new smile and fix the dental problems that have bothered them for years.

 

  • Best looks/aesthetics | Looks and feels the most like your natural smile.
  • Permanent | Doesn’t come in and out of your mouth like a denture.
  • No lengthy healing times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full mouth/full arch teeth replacement options.
  • Requires the smallest amount of bone | Wonderful for patients who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How Same Day Dental Implants Work

The technique involves removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and affixing a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often placed at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also avoids the necessity for expensive bone grafts with lengthy recovery times.

The standard All-On-4 treatment incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth overlaid upon a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on experience and knowledge to provide an improved result for our patients. At Stockbridge Dentures and Implants, we carefully examine every single case and base our treatment plan on the individual patient’s anatomy. The doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be used while the implants fuse with the jawbones and your mouth heals. After the healing is finished, the doctor and lab technician will design your final teeth with zirconia, which is much more stable than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth used by competing dental implant practices. Zirconia also offers a more natural, life-like finished product and is more sanitary and resistant to discoloration. This means they will last longer and look better than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges common at competing dental implant practices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most people will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. The doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid your sinuses and use the strongest bone. Using this method usually eliminates the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

Your doctor will perform a detailed evaluation during your free consultation to see if All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the right option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth immediately?

Yes! However, even though your implants and teeth are securely in place the day of your surgery, we kindly ask that you stick to a softer diet during the four month healing timeframe. So what do we mean? A good general rule is you can eat anything which you can cut with the side of a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing in a treatment that can last you many decades, even the rest of your life, and maintaining a soft food diet during the healing period will allow the best possible integration of your implants into your bone and help ensure the best long-term outcome.

For how long has the All-on-4 procedure been around?

This life-changing solution was developed by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since that time, this procedure has safely been performed on hundreds of thousands of people and has been improved upon to the method we use today.

How do I care for my All-On-4 teeth?

Caring for your teeth is very easy, but consistency is key. Just like we’re supposed to brush and floss natural teeth, we should do the same with our All-On-4 teeth and implants. A few minutes a day is all it will take to keep your mouth and implants healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft bristle tooth brush and cleaning under them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a very popular, well-known brand) a few times a day is all it takes.

Smoking can increase the risk of implant complications, so we recommend not smoking with dental implants. Diabetics should also be aware of an increased risk for complication with dental implants. Controlling your diabetes is very important for the long-term success of your implants.

Other than that, simply follow up with your doctor regularly throughout the year for quick evaluations of your new implant teeth.

What do the new implant bridges feel like?

Your new implant bridges will be a new sensation and will take a few days or sometimes a few weeks to get used to.

Will there be a lot of pain with the procedure?

Although there will be moderate pain, it is similar to the pain common with teeth extractions. We use a combination of medications to help control pain and keep our patients as comfortable as we can.

Is there pain after the procedure?

Though experiences will vary, you should expect mild discomfort and slight swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the next day for their follow-up appointment reporting minimal discomfort. You will be prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you’re a good candidate for it, your doctor will provide a steroid shot which will: help alleviate pain and swelling for the first few days.

What recovery time can I expect with All-on-4 dental implants?

This will vary from person to person, but, overall, the recovery period is shorter and easier with All-on-4 implants than other full arch or full mouth restoration options. This is mostly due to the bridges being attached directly to the bone via the implants. Classic dentures and implant dentures both require recovery periods during which time the dentures are able to shift and cause sore spots. Your pain should decline for the most part within 1-2 weeks, with full healing usually after 6 months.

What is the difference between your practice and a traditional local office offering a wide range of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and especially "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and we are regularly working to ensure our patients receive the best possible results. Many dental practices will refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have complicated pricing. They can take many months or even years to complete the procedure while charging you up to double our price. Our doctor performs the procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an in-house prosthetics lab and expert lab technician, along with transparent and affordable pricing. By having all this at one location, we are able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

What is the difference between your practice and corporate implant practices?

At Stockbridge Dentures and Implants, we have the same advantages of the national dental implant centers by focusing our practice on dental prosthetics and implants. Our office has an in-house dental lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. The advantage is, we are privately owned, and every patient will be seen by our doctor. We focus on the satisfaction of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. With national dental implant centers, there is no guarantee that you'll be seen by the same doctor who has the great reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your complete procedure and the team will do everything to be certain you are happy with your new smile and treat you like family.

How does this compare to snap in dentures or mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are not related to the All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day " procedure. Please proceed with caution at any office that recommends mini dental implants as a permanent solution. These have a very high complication and failure rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, can be a wonderful option for some people. We also provide this option and have an entire page dedicated to snap-in dentures if you would like to learn more. Snap-in dentures may be a more economical alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How frequently should I get my new teeth professionally cleaned?

You should (visit us every 6 months to have your implants examined and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new teeth and implants.

Can implants fail?

Although titanium implants do have a 95+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which may cause them to fail:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails during the first year, our dentist will replace it for free.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is perfectly normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as foreign material and is working to “flush” it out. This increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do provide both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. The medicine will provide relaxation and typically makes it so you won't remember your procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for this procedure, due to the oral sedation pill(s). You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

Are All-On-4 bridges always attached to the dental implants the same day as the procedure?

In most cases these will be attached immediately. In certain cases, mostly dependent on the quality of your bone and volume, we will be unable to install your dental bridge(s) during your procedure and you will need to wear a temporary healing denture while your new implants integrate into the bone. Our doctor will review this thoroughly during your exam.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will have stopped before you leave our office, however, expect to have slight bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. In addition, you'll most likely notice increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this increased saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If you experience heavy bleeding, please call our office.

Will I automatically know how to use my prosthetic teeth right away?

Just as you would need practice in order to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg, it will need some practice and patience to become accustomed with your prosthetic teeth. With that being said, since they are rigidly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 teeth will be the easiest to get comfortable with of all the full-arch implant options.

Will I automatically know how to talk with my new teeth right away?

Again, this will take a little time, but with a little patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like “Mississippi” and “sixty-six” can help you get accustomed to your prosthetic teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a slight lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

How long after my procedure do I need to wait to use a water flosser or Waterpik?

You should expect to wait 6 weeks after the procedure before beginning to clean a water flosser.

Am I too young for this procedure?

No, this is not only for senior citizens. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s to need to replace their teeth. Replacing bad teeth can be immensely beneficial to your long-term physical health, and having the ability to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your psychological health.

What would be helpful to have ready ahead of my procedure?

  • Ice packs

  • Wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away

  • Comfortable clothes you wouldn't mind throwing awa

  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my final teeth be made from?

We make the final bridge out of zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than traditional acrylic All-On-4 teeth which other offices provide. If you choose another office, be certain you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do decide on acrylic prosthetic teeth with a titanium bar with a different office, you can expect to have staining around your teeth and to replace them every 5-10 years. Also, make sure you know the total price you are going to pay for the procedure, temporary teeth, and final teeth. Some practices may charge you a base fee only for you to discover owe an additional $5,000-$15,000 for the final product.

How much does the All-On-4 procedure cost?

The full cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost will be $39,000. Both prices include the removal of any remaining teeth, placing the implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and the fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Other offices often charge a surgery fee, temporary fee, and then surprise you at the end with yet another fee for your new teeth. Our pricing is completely transparent, and we will not surprise you with any extra fees.

How can I get fixed teeth in one day? I thought the implants needed time to heal first?

The unique thing about this procedure, and what lets us attach new teeth your implants from day one, is that all of the implants will be rigidly held in place by your new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the dental implants that can lead to failure early on. Basically, your implants and dental bridge all support each other.

The dental implants are made from titanium, the same material used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your bone will naturally grow around and attach to them over time.

What if a different provider has said that I'm not a great candidate or do not have enough bone for dental implants?

Many patients that have been told they are not candidates for other dental implants are actually good candidates for our All-On-4 procedure. A combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw where the bone is more dense allows us to complete this procedure for many patients that thought this was not an option for them. We can usually perform the procedure without the need for expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a free dental exam to learn if you're a candidate.

Can the extractions, implants, and fixed teeth really be completed in only one day?

Yes! This is our preferred way of performing this procedure with an ideal final result. With the leading dental implants and materials available today, there is typically no reason to have to wait months or even years to go through the process like patients experienced in the past.

Is your doctor a specialist such as an oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist?

No, our doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice exclusively to prosthetics and dental implantology. Dental implantology is their passion, and they have more experience placing dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In very select cases, they will collaborate with other dental specialists to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

How do you provide the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" dental implant procedure for far less than other local offices?

Because of the high number of these procedures we perform and limiting our practice exclusively very specific procedures, we have advantages that other offices do not have. We have our in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist who performs the procedure start to finish. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer these procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing available. Not only do we have the lowest prices, we also use only the finest dental implants and zirconia teeth.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. Our practice offers multiple payment options including third party financing. We work with our patients in any way possible to get them smiling again.

Click here for financing options.

Do you provide guarantees or warranties?

If a dental implant should fail to integrate we will replace it at no cost to you. Our office warranties the final dental bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, patients must return every 6 months for maintenance and hygiene of their bridges/implants. This warranty does not apply to patients who continue to use nicotine products or have uncontrolled diabetes or develop other uncontrolled systemic conditions that compromise their implants.

How long does this procedure take?

Usually the surgery is about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes another 2 hours. If we start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often done by lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we usually finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for your teeth to be created in our lab and trying them in to be certain your smile is just right. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth the final product!

What if I'm not happy with my new teeth?

Our team does everything possible to ensure you're thrilled with your new teeth. The teeth you get the day of the procedure are only a temporary/transitional set. When we fabricate your final teeth, you will have complete control of the design and appearance of your smile.

What about some of these out of town dentists in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. advertising same day final teeth?

While this can be a good fit for many patients, in the rare case of complications or broken teeth, it is very difficult to repair if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local dentists will not be willing to repair another dentist's work. A major advantage of having a transitional set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure is that you get to test them out and learn what you like and don't like. For the final zirconia or nano-ceramic teeth, we can offer try-ins to ensure that your teeth look exactly the way you want them to look. While it’s great to get your final teeth immediately, it can come with several serious downsides that cannot be ignored.

Do All-On-4 teeth move (front to back, side to side)?

No, they are firmly attached to your dental implants, which are rigidly anchored in your jaw. If your All-On-4 teeth begin moving for any reason, call us so we can bring you in for an evaluation.

Why do you call it "teeth in a day" when I won’t receive my final teeth until 4-6 months after my procedure?

This is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. Since there can often significant changes to your mouth during the implant integration and healing phase, it is best to start with a transitional set of teeth. This ensures the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can the temporary teeth be damaged?

Yes, your temporary teeth are made of acrylic and can crack, chip, and sometimes break. This is very common. The best thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can be easily repaired. If you have any issues with your temporary, just call our office and we’ll get you fixed up right away.

Can my permanent teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to get damaged, it’s very uncommon. Zirconia and nano-ceramic are among the most durable and strongest substances available in the dental world.

I already have a dental implant (or implants), can they be used for All-On-4?

Unfortunately, not. As your current implants will not be the correct position that this procedure requires, and as bone reduction will be necessary, we cannot use your current implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

No, you cannot remove the prosthetics yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. Prosthetic teeth are secured to your dental implants.

Can food get under my All-On-4 bridge(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in the mouth will get some amount of food under it. You can rinse with water to remove food from under your bridge(s), and cleaning every day with a water flosser will be included in your long-term hygiene routine.

How long should I take off work for recovery after surgery?

Of all full arch replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required to recover. Usually 4-7 days is enough. That being said, since there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you’ll need to become accustomed to speaking and eating with your new teeth, the longer you can take off, the better.

“Teeth-in-a-Day” Procedure

Timeline

The procedure itself typically takes between four and six hours depending on whether you are getting a single arch treated (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, your temporary teeth will be securely attached to the new implants. You will wear the temporary bridge(s) for 4 months to allow time for your dental implants to fuse with the bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a strong, long-term position before we fabricate your final teeth. Having this recovery time ensures the closest possible fit for your final teeth. After the healing time, we will begin fabricating your permanent bridge(s). This involves a few appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help us design the smile you want for your final teeth.

Mouth Impressions

The lab uses these to make your temporary implant bridge(s). Possible wax try-in – if you are missing all or most of the teeth in the arch that we will be treating, the doctor may suggest a wax try-in. This is a mock up of what your temporary implant bridge and will be used to check bite position, aesthetics, etc.
