The All-on-4 dental implants can give you a complete set of permanent imitation teeth in one standard dental appointment if you have missing teeth due to injury, accident, decay, or disease. Vita Dental offers All-on-4 dental implants, the latest advancement in implant technology to help restore the mouthful of missing teeth with dental implants, surgically and deliberately placed at accurate angles in your mouth.
The All-on-4 dental procedure, also known as Teeth-In-a-Day, is specifically performed on patients who have an entire arch of teeth missing in the upper or lower jaw. In this system, four dental implant posts are strategically placed in the mouth to build maximum support for the jaw bone. Then, a fully functional denture is set right on top of and attached to the implants, restoring the usual functions of the mouth in a day.
Because of the strategic placement of the dental implants, All-on-4 often removes the need for a bone graft surgery to be performed first. This means that individuals who were formerly not eligible for dental implants can now enjoy all their benefits, all thanks to All-on-4.
With decades of research and advancement in the latest technology, All-on-4 teeth replacement is just a one-day procedure. First, our dentist will take X-rays and photographs of your jaw and oral cavity to help plan the treatment. Once everything is in place, anesthesia is administered to make you completely relaxed and comfortable. When you feel at ease, the gums are cut, and each dental implant is placed using surgical guides.
Two longer dental implant posts are lodged in the front of the jaw, with another angled along each side of the mouth. In some cases, for additional support, a fifth or sixth dental implant will also be placed. Once this segment of the dental implant procedure is complete, the gums are sutured, and the denture is placed on top soon after. Afterward, you can typically walk out of the dentist’s office with a temporary set of beautiful teeth secured to the implants.
