What are Same Day Implants?

The “Teeth in a Day,” All-On-4 procedure allows most patients to get any remaining teeth removed, implants inserted, and a stunning, fixed, functional smile delivered in a single day! This technique has the ability not only to give patients a stunning smile, but also give them a fresh outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, old or failing dental work, or fractured teeth. For these patients, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the best answer for gaining a new smile and fix the dental problems of the past.

 

  • Best aesthetics/looks | Looks and feels the most like natural teeth.
  • Permanent | Doesn’t move in and out of your mouth like dentures.
  • No extended healing times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing capability of all full arch/full mouth tooth replacement choices.
  • Needs the least amount of bone | Great for patients who have been told they don’t have enough bone for dental implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

The procedure includes removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are often added at special 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 procedure involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on knowledge and experience to offer an even better outcome for our patients. At Reno Dentures and Implants, we meticulously analyze each and every case and base our treatment on each individual patient’s anatomy. The doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be added while the implants integrate with the jawbones and your mouth heals. Once the healing is finished, the doctor and lab technician will design your permanent teeth with zirconia, which is much stronger than the conventional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth used by most other dental implant offices. Zirconia also provides a more realistic, life-like finished product and is more hygienic and resistant to staining. This means they will look better and last longer than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at competing dental implant practices.

Am I a Candidate?

Most people will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. The doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid your sinuses and use the strongest bone. Utilizing this technique usually eliminates the need for costly and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

Your doctor will perform a detailed assessment during your free consultation to see if All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the right option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth the same day?

Yes! However, although your implants and teeth are securely placed the day of your surgery, we kindly ask that you stick to a soft diet during the four month healing period. So what does that mean? A good general rule is that you can eat any food you can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you are investing into a treatment which could last you several decades, even the rest of your life, and maintaining a soft food diet initially will allow for the best integration of your implants into the bone and help establish the best outcome long-term.

How long has this procedure been available?

This transformative solution was pioneered by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, it has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of people all the while being improved upon to the method you see today.

How do I care for my All-On-4 teeth?

Taking care of your implants is simple, but staying consistent is key. Just like how we’re meant to regularly floss and brush natural teeth, you should do this with the new implants and teeth. Only few minutes daily is all it will take to keep your implants and mouth healthy. Regularly brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a very popular, well-known brand) a few times daily is all it will take.

Tobacco can increase the risk of implant complications, so we recommend not smoking with dental implants. Diabetics should also be made aware of a heightened risk for problems with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is very important for the long-term success of your new implants.

Besides that, simply follow up with your doctor consistently during the year for quick examinations of your new dental implants.

What will my new implant bridges feel like?

Your new dental implants will bring a new sensation which will take several days or sometimes several weeks to get used to.

Is there excessive pain with this procedure?

While you can expect moderate pain, it is similar to the pain of standard teeth extractions. Our team uses a combination of medications to help control the pain and keep our patients as comfortable as we can.

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

While your experience may vary, most patients can expect some discomfort and possible swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their post op appointment reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you are a good candidate for it, your doctor will give you a steroid shot which will: help alleviate discomfort and swelling for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like for dental implants?

Experiences will vary from patient to patient, but, most often, the recovery period is faster and easier with this procedure compared to other complete teeth restoration alternatives. This is mainly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to the bone via the implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time they can move and cause sore spots. Generally, pain should subside mostly within 1-2 weeks, with complete healing typically after 6 months.

What is the difference between Reno Dentures and Implants and a traditional dental office offering a wide range of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental prosthetics and implants. Dental implants, and specifically "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and we are regularly working to ensure our patients receive the best possible results. Many dental practices will often refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They will take many months or even years to complete the procedure all the while charging you 50-100% more. Our doctor performs the complete procedure from surgery to final teeth. We provide an in-house lab and expert lab technician, to provide affordable and transparent pricing. By providing 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 corporate dental implant practices?

Reno Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the national dental implant offices by focusing our practice on dental implants and prosthetics. Our office has an in-house dental prosthetic lab, very competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. However, our office is privately owned, and every single patient will be seen by our doctor. We focus on the gratification of our patients instead of shareholders, sales quotas, and cost cutting. At national dental implant offices, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same doctor who has the great online reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and our team will do everything to be certain you are thrilled 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 cautiously at any office that recommends mini dental implants as a permanent implant solution. This method has 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 an entire page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. They can be a more budget-friendly alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How frequently should I get my new teeth cleaned professionally?

You should (visit us every 6 months to have your teeth checked and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new implants and teeth.

Can dental implants fail?

Although 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
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If an implant fails during the first year, our dentist will replace it for free.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is completely normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as a foreign object and is working to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. This medication will help to relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember your procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver for this procedure, someone who can drive you after you have taken your oral sedation pill(s). You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

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

In most cases these will be attached immediately. In certain situations, mostly dependent on the quality of your bone and volume, we would not be able to attach your dental bridge(s) the same day and you'll need to wear a temporary healing denture while your new implants bond to your bone. Our doctor will go over this in-depth at your exam.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will have stopped before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. In addition, you will most likely see 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 know how to use my prosthetic teeth right away?

Just like you will need practice in order to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg, it will need some practice and patience to get used to your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since these are rigidly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 teeth will be the easiest to get comfortable with of all the full-arch replacement options.

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

Again, this will take a little time, but with some patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like "sixty-six" and "sarcastic" will help you get used 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 my procedure should I wait to use a Waterpik or water flosser?

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

I feel like I’m too young for this procedure?

No, this is not only for seniors. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s to need to replace their teeth. Replacing bad teeth can be immensely beneficial to your long-term health, and having the ability to smile, laugh, and converse confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your psychological health.

What items should I have ready ahead of the procedure?

  • Ice packs
  • Wash cloths you don’t mind throwing out
  • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my replacement teeth be made of?

The final bridge is made from zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than conventional acrylic All-On-4 teeth which other offices provide. If you select another office, be certain you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do get acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with a different office, expect to see staining around the teeth and to have them replaced every 5-10 years. Also, make sure you know how much you're going to pay for the operation, temporaries, and final new teeth. Other offices may charge you a surgery/temporary fee only for you to discover owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for the final product.

How much does the All-On-4 procedure cost?

The full cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $22,800. For both arches, the total cost will be $41,000. These prices include the removal of any remaining teeth, placing the implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and your fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Many offices will charge a surgery fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with another fee for your permanent teeth. Our pricing is entirely transparent, and we will not surprise you with any additional costs.

How can I get permanent teeth in just one day? I thought the implants had to heal?

The unique thing about this procedure, and what lets us attach teeth your implants from day one, is that all of your implants will be rigidly held in place by your new teeth (the implant bridge). Splinting them together prevents the micro-movement of the implants that can lead to failure early on. Basically, your implants and bridge support one another.

Your dental implants will be made of titanium, the same metal used in artificial knee and hip joints, so your jawbone will naturally grow around and attach to them over time.

What if a different provider has said that I'm not a great candidate or do not have enough bone for implants?

The majority of patients who have been advised they are not candidates for other dental implants are actually great candidates for our All-On-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedure. A combination of using angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense lets us perform the procedure for many patients that thought implants were not right for them. Our team can usually perform the procedure without the need for expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a complimentary consultation to learn if you're a candidate.

Can the extractions, implants, and new teeth really be completed in only one day?

Yes! This is our preferred way of performing this procedure to support an ideal final result. With the state-of-the-art implants and materials available today, there is typically no reason to have to wait months or even years to complete the process like you had to do in the past.

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

No, our doctor is a general dentist who limits their practice to prosthetics and dental implantology. Dental implantology is their passion, and they have placed more dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In very select cases, they will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that our patients receive the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

How can you offer the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" dental implant procedure for so much less than other offices in the area?

Because of the high number of these procedures we perform and limiting our practice exclusively dental implants, we have advantages that other offices simply do not. We have our in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist that performs the entire procedure. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer All-on-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing available. Not only do we have the lowest prices, we also use only the finest implants and materials.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. We offer multiple payment plans 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 offer guarantees or warranties?

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

How long will this procedure take?

Typically the surgery is 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 finished around lunch time. If we are replacing both upper and lower teeth, we typically finish closer to 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Most of this time is waiting for your teeth to be created in our lab and trying them in to be certain your smile is exactly how you want it. 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 love your new smile. The teeth you receive the day of the procedure 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 out of town offices in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. offering same day final teeth?

While this can be a good fit for many patients, in the rare case of complications or teeth breaking, it is very difficult to repair if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local dentists will not be willing to repair another practice's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your surgery is you get to test them out and discover 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 like you want them to look. While it’s exciting to get your final teeth immediately, it does come with some serious downsides that cannot be ignored.

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

No, these are rigidly attached to your implants, which are rigidly anchored in your jaw. If your All-On-4 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 don’t receive my final teeth until 4-6 months after the surgery?

The procedure is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you are receiving a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. As there can often significant changes to your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to begin with a transitional set of teeth. This helps ensure the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can the temporary teeth be damaged?

Yes, the temporary teeth are made of acrylic and can crack, chip, and occasionally break. This is quite common. The great thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can be easily repaired. If you have any issues with the temporary, just call our office and we’ll get it repaired right away.

Can the final teeth get damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to be damaged, it’s very uncommon. Zirconia and nano-ceramic are among the most durable and strongest materials available in dentistry.

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

Unfortunately, no. As your current implants will not be the correct position that this procedure requires, 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 the prosthetics yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. Prosthetic teeth 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 get food out from under your bridge(s), and cleaning daily with a water flosser will be included in your long-term hygiene regimen.

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

Of all complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required before returning to work. Typically 4-7 days is sufficient. That being said, as there is always a chance of bruising and swelling, and you’ll need to get used to speaking and eating with your new teeth, the more time you can take off, the better.

All-On-4 Procedure

Timeline

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

Mouth Impressions

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.
