The loss of your permanent teeth can be demoralizing. However, you can enjoy eating your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with self-confidence when your natural teeth are replaced with teeth in a day.
Also known as All-on-4, teeth in a day is a dental process that helps to restore the loss of all upper and/or lower dental arches in one day. Your implant dentist will put four strategically placed titanium implants in your gum tissue. At this same appointment the implants will be covered and your dental ordeal is completed.
Whether teeth are lost due to trauma, decay, or disease; or for edentulous patients that never experienced their biological teeth erupting, a solution can be achieved in one day that can relieve discomfort, embarrassment, and eliminate the need for time-consuming denture care.
The true beauty of All-on-4 is once the process is completed, the patient can enjoy their new teeth for life. Just as natural teeth require consistent care, your new teeth need proper care for lasting enjoyment and utilization. Your implant dentist will outline a program to help you care for your new smile.
And unlike some other dental prosthetics, there will never be a need for a reline. The implants will not sit soaking in a case during the night, and you will never be caught by surprise without your teeth.
Your implant dentist will review what you can anticipate with teeth in a day replacement. Unlike traditional dental implants, All-on-4 does not require a healing period or bone grafting before the final restoration can be placed. A complete exam will be conducted to determine whether this program is ideally suited for your particular needs.
Down time is minimal, and the patient can usually enjoy a light meal the same day their new teeth are placed. He or she may experience slight discomfort, but over-the-counter analgesics are generally sufficient to bring relief.
An adjustment period can be expected as you learn to eat and speak with a healthy full set of teeth. But this brief period is followed by a lifetime of being able to eat the foods you loved and missed, speaking without fear and embarrassment, and smiling with renewed self-confidence.
