What are “Teeth in a Day” Implants?

The “Teeth in a Day,” All-On-4 procedure allows most patients to get all remaining teeth removed, implants inserted, and a gorgeous, permanent, functional smile delivered in only a single day! The All-On-4 technique has the ability not only to give patients a beautiful smile, but also give them a new outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, and fractured teeth. For these patients, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the ideal solution to have 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.
  • Non-removable | Doesn’t move in and out of the mouth like dentures.
  • No long healing times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Does not cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full mouth/full arch teeth replacement choices.
  • Needs the least amount of bone | Wonderful for people who have been told they don’t have enough bone for dental implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

This procedure involves removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often placed at specific angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also removes the necessity for expensive bone grafting with extended healing times.

The classical All-On-4 technique involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth overlaid upon a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on experience and knowledge to provide an improved result for our patients. At Orlando Dentures and Implants, we carefully examine every single case and base the treatment plan on each individual patient’s anatomy. Our doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be placed while the implants integrate with your jawbones and your mouth heals. After your healing is complete, the doctor and lab technician will design your final teeth with zirconia, which is much stronger than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at most other dental implant practices. Zirconia also offers a more realistic, life-like finished product and is more sanitary and resistant to discoloration. This means they will look better and last longer 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. Your doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid your sinuses and use the strongest bone. Utilizing this technique typically removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth the same day?

Yes! However, while your implants and teeth are securely in place the day of your surgery, we kindly request that you stick to a soft foods diet throughout the four month healing timeframe. So what does that mean? A simple guide is that you can eat any food that can be can cut with the side of a plastic fork. The reason for this is that you are investing in something which can last you decades, perhaps even the rest of your life, and keeping to a softer diet initially will allow the best possible integration of your implants into the bone and help ensure a fantastic outcome long-term.

For how long has this procedure been around?

This transformative solution was pioneered by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since that time, this procedure has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of people and has been improved upon to what you see today.

How do I take care of my new teeth?

Maintaining your implants is easy, but staying consistent is key. Similar to how we are supposed to routinely brush and floss natural teeth, you need do this with the new implants and teeth. Just a few minutes a day is all it will take to keep your dental implants healthy. Regularly brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a well-known and popular brand) a few times daily is all that's required.

Cigarette smoking can increase the possibility of implant problems, so we recommend not using tobacco products with dental implants. Diabetics should also be made aware of a heightened risk for problems with dental implants. Controlling your diabetes is very important for the long-term success of your new implants.

Besides that, simply follow up with your doctor consistently throughout the year for quick evaluations of your new All-on-4 implants.

What will my new implant bridges feel like?

Your new implant teeth will bring a new sensation and will take several days or sometimes several weeks to get used to.

Will there be a lot of pain with the procedure?

Although you can expect moderate pain, it is similar to the pain of standard teeth extractions. We use a combination of medications to help control the pain and keep our patients as comfortable as possible.

Will there be pain after the procedure?

While your experience may vary, you should expect mild soreness and slight swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the next day for their post op examination reporting minimal discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you’re a candidate for it, the doctor will provide a steroid injection which will: help reduce swelling and discomfort for the first few days.

What recovery time can I expect with dental implants?

This will vary from person to person, but, most often, the recovery time is shorter and easier with All-on-4 implants than other full arch or full mouth restoration alternatives. This is mostly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via the implants. Classic dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time the dentures are able to shift and cause sore spots. The pain should subside mostly within one to two, with complete healing typically after six months.

What is the difference between your practice and a general local practice that has a wide scope of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and particularly "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is continually working to ensure our patients get the best possible results. Many offices will refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They often take many months or even years to finish 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 dental lab and experienced lab technician, to provide transparent and affordable pricing. By offering all this under one roof, we are able to deliver the best service at the best price.

What is the difference between your practice and national dental implant offices?

Orlando Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the national implant practices by limiting our practice to dental prosthetics and implants. Our office has an on-site dental prosthetic lab, very competitive pricing, and same day teeth. However, our office is privately owned, and each patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. Our team focuses on the happiness of our patients instead of cost cutting, shareholders, and monthly quotas. At national dental implant centers, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same dentist that has the great online reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your complete procedure and the team will do everything we can to make sure you are overjoyed with your smile and treat you like family.

What about mini dental implants? Or snap in dentures?

Mini dental implants are not related to what we do at Columbus Dentures and Implants for our All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day " procedure. Please proceed with caution at any office recommending mini dental implants as a permanent implant solution. These have a very high complication and failure rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, are a fantastic option for some people. Our office also provides this service and have a separate page dedicated to snap-in dentures if you want to learn more. These can be a more budget-friendly alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How often should I get my dental implants cleaned professionally?

Plan to (visit us every six months to have your implants checked and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new teeth and implants.

Can implants fail?

While titanium implants do have a 95+% rate of success, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which can contribute to failure:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails during the first year, your 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 a foreign object and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should subside within a few days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. This medication will help relax you and typically makes it so you won't remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you to and from for this procedure, due to the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

Are All-On-4 bridges always attached to the implants the day of the procedure?

Most cases will be attached straightaway. In certain situations, mainly depending on your bone quality and volume, we would be unable to attach your bridge(s) during your procedure and you'll need to wear a temporary healing denture while your implants integrate into your bone. Our doctor will go over this thoroughly at your exam.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave our office, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after your procedure. In addition, you'll most likely have increased salivation when we first place your temporary teeth. When this increased saliva mixes with a small amount of blood, it can look like a lot of blood. If you experience heavy bleeding, please call the office.

Will I automatically know how to use my prosthetic teeth immediately?

Just like you would need practice to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some practice and patience to get used to your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since they are rigidly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 teeth will be the easiest to get used to of all our full-arch implant options.

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

Again, this will take a little time, but with a little patience and practice, your mouth and tongue will adjust quickly. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing words like "stupendous" and "Mississippi" can help you get accustomed to your new teeth. In a few cases, patients may have a small lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

You should wait six weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with a water flosser.

Am I too young for the dental implants?

No, this is not just a procedure for the elderly. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, and 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be quite beneficial to your long-term health, and being able to smile, laugh, and converse confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your psychological health.

What items should I have ready ahead of my procedure?

  • Ice packs

  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing away

  • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away

  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my new teeth be made of?

We make the final bridge from zirconia. Zirconia is a much stronger and more stain resistant material than traditional acrylic All-On-4 teeth that other offices provide. If you select another provider, be certain you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do get acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with another office, expect to see staining around the teeth and to have them replaced every five to ten years. Also, make sure you know the total price you're going to pay for the surgery, temporaries, and final teeth. Some providers may charge you a base fee only for you to find out you owe another $5,000-$15,000 for your final teeth.

How much can I expect to pay for the "Teeth in a Day" procedure?

The entire cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost is $39,000. These prices include the removal of any remaining teeth, placing your implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and your fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Many offices will charge an operation fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with yet another fee for your permanent teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will never surprise you with any additional costs.

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

The unique thing about this procedure, and what allows us to attach teeth your metal implants immediately, is that all of the implants will be rigidly splinted together by the new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the implants that can lead to early failure. Basically, your implants and dental bridge support one another.

Your dental implants are made from titanium, the same material used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your jawbone will naturally grow around and bond with them over time.

What if another dentist has said that I am not a great candidate or do not have enough bone for dental implants?

Many patients who have been told they aren't candidates for dental implants are actually good candidates for our All-On-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedure. The combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is denser allows us to complete this procedure for many patients that thought implants were not an option. Our team can typically perform the procedure without the need for expensive grafting which delays treatment by months or years. Please visit 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 method of doing this procedure to support an ideal outcome. With the advanced implants and materials that we have available today, there is usually no reason for you to wait months or even years to complete the process like patients experienced in the past.

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

No, the doctor is a general dentist who limits their practice to dental implantology and prosthetics. This area of expertise is their passion, and they have more experience placing dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In limited select cases, they will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their situation.

How do we offer the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" dental implant procedure for far less than other local dental practices?

By performing a high number of these procedures and limiting our practice to dental implants, we have advantages that other practices simply do not. Our office has in-house lab and lab technician and a single dentist that performs the procedure start to finish. These efficiencies allows us to offer advanced dental implant procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing available. Not only do we have the best prices, we also use only the finest dental implants and materials.

Are there payment plans available?

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.

Does your practice provide guarantees or warranties?

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

How long will the All-on-4 procedure take?

Usually the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making your teeth takes another 2 hours. If we begin in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often done around lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we typically finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Most of this time is waiting for your teeth to be produced 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 don’t like my new teeth?

Our team does everything possible to ensure you're thrilled with your new smile. The teeth you get the day of surgery are only a temporary/transitional set. When our lab fabricates your final teeth, you will have full control of the design and appearance of them.

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

While this is a good fit for many patients, in the rare case of complications or teeth breaking, it can be very difficult to fix if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local practices will not be willing to repair another dentist's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure is 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 significant drawbacks that cannot be ignored.

Will All-On-4 teeth rock (front to back, side to side)?

No, these are firmly attached to your implants, which are firmly anchored to your jaw. If your new teeth begin rocking for any reason, call our office so we can schedule an exam.

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

The procedure 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 are often significant changes in your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a transitional set of teeth. This helps ensure the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can my temporary teeth get damaged?

Yes, the 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 easily be repaired. If you have any issues with your temporary, just give us a call and we’ll get it repaired right away.

Can my permanent teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to be damaged, it’s extremely rare. These materials are among the most durable and strongest materials available in the dental world.

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

Unfortunately, no. Since your current implants will not be the proper position required by this procedure, and as bone reduction will need to be performed, we cannot use your existing implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Are my All-On-4 bridges removable?

No, you cannot remove these yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. They are secured to your implants.

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

Yes, any dental prosthetic can 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 regimen.

How much time should I take off work to recover after my procedure?

Of all full arch replacement options, All-On-4 tends to have the shortest time required before returning to work. Usually 4-7 days is sufficient. That being said, as there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you’ll need to become accustomed to eating and speaking with your new teeth, the longer you can take off, the better.

“Teeth-in-a-Day” Procedure

Timeline

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

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.
