The teeth-in-a-day procedure is probably one of the most notable innovations in implant dentistry. You come in to the dental clinic and leave with a new set of permanent teeth all on the same day! All-on-4 is a popular type of teeth-in-a-day procedure where four permanent implants are used to support a whole arch of teeth.
Conventional dental implant procedures take several months and multiple visits to the dentist. The All-on-4 system is a great deal simpler. During consultation, your dentist will make sure you and your mouth are in excellent shape. Teeth impressions and mouth x-rays will also be taken. Once everything is good to go, your dentist will proceed with surgery: embedding four titanium posts into the jawbone and topping the abutment with a full set of permanent teeth.
Why Choose All-on-4?
All-on-4 has many benefits. It is very convenient, and the procedure is completed in a one day. There is no downtime, and you can immediately eat and speak normally after the procedure. There’s also no need for surgically invasive bone graft procedures for patients with thin bone or low bone density. Since the posts used for the procedure are very small in diameter, they can be embedded easily. Aesthetically, All-on-4 implants also look like natural teeth. Nobody can tell you’re wearing artificial teeth unless you tell them!
All-on-4 implants are permanent, durable, biocompatible and require little maintenance. Simply clean your teeth like usual: brush for two minutes twice a day and floss at least once daily. See you dentist every six months (or as scheduled). Proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups ensure that your permanent teeth will last as long possible.
