What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

all-on-4 archesThe All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure consists of removing any remaining teeth, placing implants, and then securing a beautiful, fixed, functional smile over the course of a single day!

This procedure will not only give patients the beautiful smile of their dreams, but also give them a fresh outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, old or failing dental work, and broken teeth. For these patients, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the perfect solution to obtain a beaming smile and fix the dental problems that have plagued them for years.

  • Best looks/aesthetics | Looks and feels like natural teeth.
  • Best chewing capability compared to other full mouth tooth replacement options.
  • Does NOT cover the roof of your mouth!
  • No long healing times before your dental implants are ready to use normally.
  • Non-removable | Doesn’t come in and out like a denture.
  • Requires the least amount of bone | Great for people with less bone mass.
  • Taste your food better!

how it works

This procedure involves removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often placed at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also avoids the need for expensive bone grafts with long healing times.

The traditional All-On-4 procedure involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on his experience and knowledge to provide an even better result for his patients! At Woodside Dental Group, we carefully analyze each and every case and base our treatment on the individual patient’s anatomy. Your doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be placed while your implants integrate with your jawbones and your mouth heals. After your healing is complete, the doctor and lab technician will design your final teeth with zirconia, which is much stronger than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at most other dental offices. Zirconia also gives a more natural, life-like end result and is more hygienic and resistant to staining. This means they will last longer and look better than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at most other practices.

am i a candidate?

Most patients will be a candidate for this procedure, even those who have been told they don’t have enough bone for dental implants. Your doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid the sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Using this technique usually removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

why zirconia is better than traditional denture material

Zirconia is a highly desirable material for implant-supported dentures. Zirconia is a type of ceramic that is extremely durable and resistant to wear and corrosion, making it an excellent choice for dental restorations.

One of the main benefits of using zirconia for an implant supported denture is its strength and stability. Zirconia dentures can withstand high chewing forces without cracking or chipping, ensuring the denture stays in place and performs reliably. Zirconia is also biocompatible, meaning it is unlikely to cause an allergic or inflammatory reaction in the body. This makes it an ideal choice for patients with sensitive or allergy-prone skin.

Another advantage of zirconia is its natural-looking appearance. Unlike metal or acrylic, zirconia has a translucent quality that mimics the look of natural teeth, giving the denture a more realistic and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Finally, zirconia is very easy to clean and maintain, and can be easily polished to maintain its shine and prevent discoloration over time. This helps ensure the longevity and durability of the implant-supported denture, providing patients with a reliable and functional replacement for missing teeth.

Overall, zirconia is an excellent choice for an implant-supported denture, offering a number of benefits that make it an attractive option for patients seeking a long-lasting, natural-looking, and easy-to-maintain dental restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions

All-On-4 Dental Implants Anchorage, AK

Will I be able to eat with my teeth from day one?

Yes. This is why this procedure is often called “teeth in a day”. Although there are still limitations on what, you should eat. Any food harder than what you can squish  between your fingers should be avoided. Doing anything otherwise risks your immediate denture fracturing and possibly damage your implants.
The first documented All-On-4  procedure can be traced back to 1998.
You should treat your All-On-4 teeth like regular teeth. Daily brushing and flossing is a must. Additional tools to assist with your hygiene would be a Waterpik and Proxabrush.
The bridges are a highly polished zirconia material and will feel very smooth. They will feel bigger than what you remember your natural teeth felt like. They also feel very secure in your mouth. The ability to bite into something crunchy or hard will be done with ease.
The first 48 hours after the procedure is the worst part. You’ll be dealing with a lot of swelling in the gums. I wouldn’t compare it to the pain of a really bad toothache though. This is something that can be managed with anti-inflammatories and possibly a narcotic as needed.
Yes there will be discomfort. If you had teeth removed, the discomfort is often more intense for the first 48 hours.
Typically three days after the procedure you will be feeling more normal. By the end of the first week you will like your normal self.

Technology, price transparency, and customer service is what makes us different. The ability to be fully digital provides a more accurate, better looking, and stronger product. Prices for this procedure vary widely in Alaska. We know that most people are shopping around for a good deal, and that’s why we put our fees right here on our website. We encourage you to go get second opinions because we are confident that at the end of the day you are getting the best value with a top quality product. Above all you are getting me, Dr. Green, as a skilled implant surgeon who is available to help you along this journey of restoring your confidence in your smile and life.

You will notice our practice will treat you like a family member and not as a quota. We make it a point to sit down and listen to what your needs are in a judgment-free environment. Too often these corporate centers focus on the bottom line but forget that there is a person attached to the implants they are placing. The next time you have a consultation at one of these centers, try to send a message through their website chat and see who responds. I know at my office you are directly communicating with me, the doctor that will help guide you through one of the most impactful decisions you will ever make in your life.

Mini implants have a time and a place for certain individuals who have extremely low bone volume. Most of the time these patients are not candidates for a traditional All-On-4 implant procedure and would need advanced implants that only a skilled surgeon should take on. If you are offered mini implants as an option I would recommend getting a 2nd or 3rd opinion to educate yourself on the best treatment route for your needs. Snap-in dentures are a good alternative to the All-On-4 if you are willing to compromise the quality and function of the denture for the price.

We recommend having them cleaned at least once a year. At our office we offer 4 cleanings in the first year to make sure that your denture is on the right track with your daily hygiene protocol.

Yes, implants can fail. There are many reasons that contribute to a failure so it is recommended to follow the doctor’s protocol in the healing phase to give yourself the best chance for success.

Drooling occurs when a foreign body stimulates the saliva response. This is designed to aid in the breakdown of food when you are chewing. A new denture will mimic that response but don’t worry, your body will adapt and you will come back to a normal saliva response in a few days.

Yes. We offer IV sedation, which is considered a moderate sedation, or we can bring in an anesthesiologist to provide general anesthesia.

Yes and no. If the quality of your bone provides sufficient primary stability then we always attach a denture to the implants. If the bone is too soft then you will walk out with a traditional denture to be safe.

Heavy bleeding should stop when you leave the clinic. It’s common to “weep” small amounts of blood for the next 12 to 24 hours.
Most people will need a couple of days to get used to the new dentures. Although they won’t feel “natural” until the bite is adjusted to be in harmony with your jaw movement.
It depends on the thickness of the denture. The perception of thickness is often determined by the placement of the implants. If the implant has to be placed in a particular position for ideal integration, then the thickness of the denture may make it difficult to pronounce certain sounds. Don’t worry though, this is something easily remedied in a couple of appointments.
It is recommended to wait for your tissue to be completely healed before using a Waterpik. That is typically 1-2 weeks.
The candidate for this procedure is based on the condition of the teeth, how many are missing, and the amount of bone you have. Age is not a major consideration to determine if you are a candidate.

You should have all the prescribed medications filled, enough liquid food for 2-3 days, and ice packs.

The final denture is made out of zirconia. It is sometimes referred to as “ceramic steel” because it is a metal that can mimic the appearance of natural teeth but it has superior toughness, strength, and fatigue resistance, in addition to excellent wear properties and biocompatibility.
Our office bundled fee for the “Teeth in a Day” service is about $23,000 per jaw.
If the quality of the bone can achieve enough primary stability to pass a specific threshold then the implants can be connected to a denture during the healing phase. The denture splints the implants together, allowing it to not move, thus they will predictably integrate into the bone.
There are other techniques in implant placement that can be used to have a successful outcome.
Yes, this is the ideal situation because the most bone volume you will ever have is the day the teeth are removed.
No, Dr. Green is a general dentist that has dedicated 100’s of hours of continuing education on implant dentistry. He continues to travel throughout the world to learn the latest techniques in this field of work.
We have invested in technology that helps us lower the cost of the traditional, labor intensive technique. We then can pass the savings onto our patients. Our prices are very similar to private practices in the lower 48.
Yes we have a few companies that we work with that offer affordable monthly payments.

Yes we offer a 20 year limited warranty called our Assured Smile Program.

The procedure typically takes 3-4 hours per jaw.
Our digital approach allows us to adjust the design of your denture to create multiple prototypes. So if you wish to make changes to the design then we can easily accommodate that until you are satisfied with the shape and color.
Most people try to save money by flying throughout the continental United States or even to international clinics. I would caution against this because if something were to go wrong, such as a denture breaking or an implant not integrating, you would want to have your surgeon on call and available to fix it as soon as possible. Traveling abroad can often be more expensive compared to coming to Woodside Dental Group.
No they do not. If you do notice any movement at all, that could be a sign of something seriously wrong with either the implants or the denture.
An implant supported denture often gets this name because patients go into the clinic for the surgery and walk out with a new functioning smile. A new set of teeth in one day.
Yes it can easily break if you eat the wrong foods or are self aware that you grind your teeth.
Yes, but with the material that we use it is very unlikely to happen.
It is possible to use existing implants to create a new All-On-4 denture.
No, only a dentist can remove the bridge.
Yes, food can get stuck underneath the bridge. That is why we recommend daily use of a Waterpik and Proxabrushes for cleaning.
We recommend at least 2-3 days.

All-On-4 Dental Implants Procedure Timeline

The procedure itself typically takes 4-6 hours depending on whether you are having a single arch treated (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, your temporary All-On-4 bridge(s) will be securely attached to your new implants.

You will wear your temporary bridge(s) for about 4 months to allow time for your implants to integrate with your bone and for your jaw and gums to heal into a stable, long-term position before we fabricate your final bridge(s). This healing time ensures the closest possible fit for your final bridges.

After you have healed, we will begin fabricating your final All-On-4 bridge(s). This involves a few appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help us design your ideal smile 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.
Mouth Impressions
Remove any teeth (if applicable), place implants, place temporary implant bridge(s). The procedure typically takes anywhere from 4-7 hours.
