ABOUT FULL-ARCH DENTAL IMPLANTS

What exactly is the Full-Arch Dental Implants procedure?
“All-on-4” and “Teeth in a Day” are terms used to describe a procedure that allows patients to receive replacement teeth in just one day. You may hear of other versions of this procedure, such as “Teeth in an Hour,” “Dental Implants in One Day,” “Teeth In One Day,” “Teeth In One Visit.” While they go by many names, all refer to a one-day implant treatment that restores an entire or full arch of replacement teeth.

The Teeth-in-a-Day treatment concept utilizes 4-6 dental implants to attach your new set of permanent replacement teeth in a minimally invasive way. The dental implants used in this procedure are specially designed for immediate function and typically do not require bone grafting. This treatment is attractive for those patients with dentures or who need full upper and/or lower restorations. If you are about to lose your teeth or have many missing teeth, the full-arch procedure can help you achieve a beautiful smile and teeth in just one day.

Unlike other approaches that involve more laborious and costly techniques often requiring bone grafting, sinus lifts, and eight or more implants per arch, which can take up to 3 years to complete treatment, our doctors use this proven technique that involves only using four specially placed implants without the need for bone grafts and sinus lifts. Your new dentures can be completed in just one day.

The result is a solid base of teeth that are fixed in place and are not removed. It means lower costs and reduced healing times, allowing our patients to regain their original youthful smile and original function faster, more reliably.
What is the process for getting Full-Arch Implants?
4-6 appliances are placed into the jawbone and gums and left to heal sufficiently before the implant bridge can be secured in place. Once implanted, your bridge will resemble the appearance of your natural teeth. Your bridge may need to be removed for periodic evaluation to ensure the health of prosthetic and implants.

As with all Dental Implants, full-arch Dental Implants are placed during an outpatient surgical procedure in our office. Most patients will want to take advantage of some sort of sedation for this procedure, in addition to the local anesthetic that will be used.

Before leaving our office, you are fitted with a fixed complete denture. After the implants have fully integrated with the bone, you may return to receive a second, stronger denture.
What are the benefits of the Full-Arch Procedure?

In addition to the short treatment time frame, full-arch Dental Implants have several advantages over conventional dentures:

  • You have new teeth in as little as just one day
  • It’s a minimally invasive procedure
  • There’s less pain and swelling
  • No more ill-fitting dentures
  • It eliminates denture adhesives
  • Your new teeth are secure as your natural teeth
  • Fewer dental visits are required
  • It’s cost-effective compared to traditional implants
  • It is a life-changing procedure
Who is a good candidate for full-arch Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. We can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants. The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
