The All-on-4 treatment concept is a state-of-the-art, innovative procedure, that provides patients permanent attached (fixed) teeth utilizing as few as four dental implants. Dr. Park specializes in offering you new teeth in as little as one day by using the All-on-4 Dental Implants / Teeth in a Day treatment concept for those that are about to lose, or have lost all their upper and/or lower teeth. If you are tired of wearing your denture because it is loose and ill fitting, or and are looking for a teeth replacement, the All on 4 / Teeth in a Day procedure will help you get rid of your denture and provide you with permanent screwed in teeth in just one day.
How does All-on-4 or Teeth in a Day work?
With the All-on-4 dental procedure the patient needs just four dental implants to benefit from this innovative treatment.
The All-on-4 treatment is used to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using 4 dental implants which act as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture of 12 to 14 teeth. All-on-4 implants can replace both damaged and missing teeth and provide a long-term, permanent alternative to dentures.
Four screws are placed into the jawbone and gums and left to heal sufficiently, before the implant bridge can be secured in place. Once implanted, the bridge will never need to be removed and will resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.
With Permanent Teeth in a Day, the patient has one or two visits to the offices of Same Day Smiles to allow Dr. Park to gather information for a comprehensive treatment plan. The records that are gathered in order to formulate a treatment plan might include a 3D CT Scan, X-Rays, jaw relation records, impressions and photos. Following this consultation, the patient is scheduled for teeth surgery and the tooth implants are fitted and adjusted, all in one appointment while the patient rests comfortably.
What are the benefits of All-on-4 or Teeth in a Day?
A full set of dentures allows for about 10% of chewing capacity compared to a full set of natural teeth. This means a softer diet which may eliminate some of the foods that you are accustomed to eating. With permanent dentistry implants you can regain your self-confidence and 70-90% of your chewing ability. Eat the foods you once enjoyed. More often than not, denture wearers complain that their denture ends up “flopping around a lot.” A denture is a last resort. This pioneering technique is specifically designed for individuals to re-establish their chewing function, stop bone loss and the effects of aging.
