Frequently Asked Questions

What are Same Day Implants?

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

 

  • Best aesthetics/looks | Looks and feels the most like your natural smile.
  • Non-removable | Can’t move in and out of the mouth like a denture.
  • No lengthy healing times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Does not cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full mouth/full arch tooth replacement choices.
  • Requires the least amount of bone | Fantastic for those who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get dental implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How Same Day Dental Implants Work

The technique includes removing all remaining teeth, adding 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are often added at specific angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also eliminates the need for expensive bone grafts with long recovery times.

The standard 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 provide an even better outcome for our patients. At Valley Dentures and Implants, we carefully review every single case and base our treatment plan on the individual patient’s anatomy. Our doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be used while the implants fuse with the jawbones and your mouth heals. Once your healing is finished, the doctor and lab technician will design your permanent teeth with zirconia, which is much more stable than the conventional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth used by most other dental implant offices. Zirconia also provides a more natural, life-like end result 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 patients will be a candidate for this procedure. Our doctor will use a blend of straight and angled implants to avoid your sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Applying this technique usually removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

Your doctor will perform a thorough evaluation during your free consultation to see if All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is an option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth from day one?

Yes! However, while your implants and new teeth are securely in place immediately, we do request that you keep up a softer diet during the four month healing period. What exactly do we mean? A good general rule is that you can eat anything which you can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing in a treatment that can last you several decades, possibly the rest of your life, and maintaining a softer diet initially will allow the best integration of your implants into your bone and help establish the best outcome long-term.

For how long has the All-on-4 procedure been available?

This life-changing solution was created by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, this procedure has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of people and has been improved upon to the method you see today.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Maintaining your teeth is easy, however staying consistent is key. Similar to how we’re supposed to routinely brush and floss natural teeth, you need do the same with your new implants and teeth. A few minutes daily is all it will take to keep your mouth and implants healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft bristle tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a very popular, well-known brand) a few times a day is all it takes.

Cigarette smoking can increase the possibility of implant problems, so we recommend not smoking with dental implants. Diabetics should also be aware of a heightened risk for problems with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is paramount for the long-term success of your dental implants.

Besides that, simply follow through with your doctor consistently throughout the year for quick examinations of your new implant teeth.

What will my new implant teeth feel like?

The new implant teeth will be a new sensation which will take several days or sometimes a few weeks to adjust to.

Can I expect a lot of pain involved in the procedure?

Although there will be moderate pain, it is similar to the pain common with typical dental extractions. Our team uses a combination of medications to help control the pain and keep you as comfortable as possible.

Is there pain after this procedure?

Though experiences will vary some, most patients should expect some soreness and some swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the next day for their post op appointment reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you’re a good candidate for it, the doctor will offer a steroid injection which will: help alleviate swelling and discomfort for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like for this procedure?

This will vary from patient to patient, but, overall, the recovery time is faster and easier with All-on-4 implants than other full arch or full mouth replacement options. This is mainly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via your implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time the dentures can move and lead to sore spots. Your pain should decline mostly within one to two, with complete healing usually after six months.

What is the difference between your practice and a general local office that has a wide scope of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and especially "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is constantly working to ensure our patients get the best possible results. Other dental practices will refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They will take several months or even years to complete the procedure while charging you up to double our price. Our dental surgeon will perform the full procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an in-house prosthetics lab and expert lab technician, to provide affordable and transparent pricing. By providing all this at one location, we are able to deliver the best service at the best price.

What is the difference between Valley Dentures and Implants and national implant centers?

Valley Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the national implant offices by limiting our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. We have an on-site lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. However, we are privately owned, and every patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. Our team focuses on the satisfaction of our patients instead of cost cutting, shareholders, and monthly quotas. With national implant practices, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same dentist that has the great reviews or whom your friend recommended you to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and the team will do everything we can to make sure you are overjoyed with your new smile and treat you like family.

How does this compare to snap in dentures or mini dental implants?

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 recommending mini dental implants as a permanent implant solution. These have a very high failure and complication rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, are a great option for some patients. We also provide this service and have a separate page dedicated to snap-in dentures if you would like to learn more. They may be a more affordable alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How often should I get my new teeth cleaned professionally?

Plan to (visit us every six months to have your teeth examined and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new implants and teeth.

Can implants fail?

Although titanium dental implants do have a 95+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which can cause them to fail:

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails within the first year, your dentist will replace it at no cost to you.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

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

Can I be put to sleep for the procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. This medicine will help to relax you and often makes it so you won't remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for this procedure, because of the sedation medication. 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, mainly dependent on the quality of your bone and quantity, we would not be able to attach your bridge(s) during your procedure and you will need to wear a temporary healing denture while your implants fuse to your bone. Our doctor will review this in-depth during your exam.

How long can I expect to bleed after surgery?

Significant bleeding will have stopped before you leave our office, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. In addition, you'll most likely see increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this increased saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

Will I automatically know how to use my prosthetic teeth immediately?

Just as you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to become accustomed with your prosthetic teeth. With that being said, since they are rigidly attached to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get comfortable with of all our full-arch restoration options.

Will I know how to speak with my new teeth right away?

Again, this will take some time, but with some practice and patience, your mouth and tongue will adjust quickly. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing words like “Mississippi” and “sixty-six” will help you get accustomed 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 do I need to wait to use a Waterpik or water flosser?

You should wait 6 weeks after the procedure before beginning to clean your water flosser.

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

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

What should I have ready for after the procedure?

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

What will my replacement teeth be made from?

The final bridge is made out of zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than conventional acrylic All-On-4 teeth that many providers offer. If you choose another office, be certain you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do decide on acrylic prosthetic teeth with a titanium bar with another office, you can expect to have staining around your teeth and to replace them every five to ten years. Also, be certain you understand the total price you're going to pay for the surgery, temporaries, and final prosthetics. Other practices will charge you a surgery/temporary fee only for you to find you owe another $5,000-$15,000 for your new teeth.

How much does the "Teeth in a Day" procedure cost?

The full cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost is $39,000. These prices include the removal of any remaining teeth, placing your implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and the fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Other providers often charge a surgery fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with another fee for your new teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will not surprise you with any additional fees.

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

What is unique about this procedure, and what lets us attach to your metal implants immediately, is that all of your implants will be rigidly held in place by your new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the dental implants that can lead to failure early on. Essentially, your implants and dental bridge all support each other.

The dental implants will be made of titanium, the same metal used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your jaw 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 don't have enough bone for dental implants?

Many patients who have been told they aren't candidates for dental implants are actually great candidates for the All-On-4 procedure. The combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw where the bone is denser allows us to perform the procedure for many patients who thought it was not an option. We can typically perform the procedure without needing expensive grafting which delays treatment by months or even years. Please visit us for a complimentary implant exam to see if you're a candidate.

Will the extractions, implants, and fixed teeth really be completed in the same day?

Yes! Completing all steps in the same day is our preferred way of doing this procedure to support the best final result. With the leading implants and materials available today, there is often no reason to have to wait months or even years to complete the process like patients experienced in the past.

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

No, the doctor is a general dentist who limits their practice exclusively to prosthetics and dental implantology. This area of expertise 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 get the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

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

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

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. Our practice offers a variety of payment options including third party financing. We work with our patients in any way possible to get them smiling again.

Click here for financing options.

Do you offer warranties or guarantees?

If a dental implant fails to integrate we will replace it at no cost to you. We warranty the final dental bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, patients must return every 6 months for maintenance and hygiene of their bridges and implants. 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 the All-on-4 procedure take?

Typically the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes about 2 hours. If we begin in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are usually done by lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we usually finish closer to 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for your teeth to be created in our lab and trying them in to be certain your smile is just right. 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're thrilled with your new smile. The teeth you receive the same day of the procedure are only a temporary/transitional set. When we fabricate your final teeth, you will have complete control of the design and appearance of your teeth.

What about some of these out of town offices in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. offering same day final teeth?

While this is a good service for some patients, in the rare case of complications or broken teeth, it can be very difficult to repair if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local practices will not be willing to repair another dentist's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure is that you get to test them out and learn 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 can be exciting to get your final teeth immediately, it does come with some significant downsides that cannot be ignored.

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

No, these are rigidly attached to your dental implants, which are firmly anchored in your jaw. If your new teeth begin rocking for any reason, call us so we can bring you in for an exam.

Why do you call this procedure "teeth in a day" when I don’t receive my final teeth until 4-6 months after my procedure?

This is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you are receiving a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth the same day. Since there are often significant changes in your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a temporary set of teeth. This ensures the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can the temporary teeth get damaged?

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

Can my final teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to be damaged, it’s very rare. These materials are among the strongest and most durable substances available in the dental world.

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

Unfortunately, no. Since your existing implants will not be the proper position that this procedure requires, and as bone reduction will be necessary, we cannot use your current implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

No, you cannot remove the prosthetics yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. Prosthetic teeth are secured to your dental 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 every day with a water flosser will be part of your long-term hygiene routine.

How long should I take off work for recovery after my procedure?

Of all full arch replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required to recover. Usually 4-7 days is sufficient. With that said, as there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you will need to become accustomed to speaking and eating with your new teeth, the longer you can take off, the better.

All-On-4 Procedure

Timeline

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

The lab uses these to make your temporary implant bridge(s).
