The “Teeth-in-a-Day” (also known as “All-on-4”) procedure allows for a patient to receive a full set of implants on the upper or lower jaw. On the day of your procedure, a minimum of four implants (per jaw) will be set. Though the permanent teeth won’t be attached until the implants have fully healed, you will leave our office with a temporary set that same day.
For a typical procedure, the implants are set in the morning and the temporary teeth in the afternoon. It is a full-day procedure, but the benefits are endless.
- Cost effective
- Shorter overall treatment time
- Reduced number of surgeries
- Provides a fixed set of teeth (not removable like dentures)
If this is something you may be interested in, talk with your dentist about it. Once your dentist refers you to Dr. Abel, we can then move forward with the necessary x-rays and 3D imaging to get started.
Please note that for the “All-On-4” technique, if you still have any natural teeth in the jaw where the implants will be placed, these remaining natural teeth will be removed on the same day that the implants are set.
