All On Four Dental Implants - Frequently Asked Questions
Question : What are all on 4 dental implants?
Answers : All on 4 dental implants or all on four dental implants are an efficient way to place dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth on the upper, lower, or both arches. Some of the implants are placed at an angle. This allows us to take advantage of the stronger, forward bone. It also allows us to use longer implants so that more bone is in contact with the dental implant. Four to six dental implants are placed in each arch in order to support the new set of permanent teeth.
Question : Can I get Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day for one or two teeth?
Answers : Unfortunately, no. Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day is only available for people suffering from complete-arch tooth loss,meaning you don't have any teeth on your upper or lower (or both) arch.
Question : Can I get Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day on just one arch?
Answers : Yes. Many of our patients choose to have the procedure done on just one arch, while keeping their removable dentures on the opposing arch. However, most of them then decide to have the opposing arch completed after enjoying the benefits of the first arch!
Question :Can someone who has some teeth still qualify for Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day procedure?
Answers : Yes. We are able to do extractions on the same day as your procedure in most cases.
Question : How will I clean my fixed teeth if I can't remove them?
Answers : Your teeth can easily be cleaned with a tooth brush, although a water pick is recommended as well. It's as simple as that.
Question : Why is this solution better than a removable solution?
Answers : There is no need to take your dentures out at night or once a day for cleaning and you will never again be caught off-guard in social situations.
Question : Will it hurt?
Answers : There is far less pain and swelling associated with Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day dental implant as compared to more conventional surgical approaches.
Question : Is this procedure very expensive?
Answers : Relative to other conventional permanent teeth solutions and even some removable implant-retained solutions, Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day is very affordable. Payment plans are also available.
Question : How many appointments will be required?
Answers : During the first appointment, the Denturist determines if you are a candidate for this procedure. If you are not a candidate, the Denturist will offer you alternative solutions. If you are a candidate, you will be sent for a consultation with our surgical team. You may also be required to go for a CT scan to help us determine the best course of treatment. As for the treatment itself, you will receive your permanent teeth on the very same day as the procedure! (That's why it is called Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day!) After that, we will have you back once or twice for a quick check just to make sure things are going smoothly.
