Frequently Asked Questions

What are All-On-4 Implants?

The “Teeth in a Day,” All-On-4 procedure allows most patients to have their remaining teeth removed, implants inserted, and a beautiful, fixed, functional smile delivered in only a single day! The All-On-4 technique has the ability not only to provide patients with a beautiful smile, but also give them a new 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” can be the best solution for gaining a new smile and fix the dental problems of the past.

 

  • Best looks/aesthetics | Looks and feels the most like your natural smile.
  • Permanent | Doesn’t move in and out of the mouth like a denture.
  • No lengthy recovery times before you can use your new implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of the mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full arch/full mouth tooth replacement choices.
  • Requires the least amount of bone | Great for people who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

This procedure involves removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and affixing a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are typically added at specific angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also avoids the necessity for expensive bone grafting with lengthy healing times.

The classical All-On-4 procedure involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth overlaid upon a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on experience and knowledge to provide an even better outcome for our patients. At Springdale Dentures and Implants, we carefully review each and every case and base the treatment plan on the individual patient’s anatomy. Your doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be added while your implants integrate with your jawbones and your mouth heals. Once your healing is complete, the doctor and lab technician will design your permanent teeth with zirconia, which is much more stable than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at most other dental implant practices. Zirconia also gives a more realistic, life-like end result and is more sanitary and resistant to discoloration. This means they will look better and last longer than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at other dental implant offices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most people will be a candidate for this procedure. Our doctor will use a combination of angled and straight implants to avoid the sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Utilizing this method typically eliminates the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to eat with my new teeth the same day?

Yes! However, while your dental implants and new teeth are securely placed immediately, we do request that you keep up a soft foods diet during the four month healing period. What exactly do we mean? A good general rule is that you can eat anything you can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing in a treatment that could last you several decades, perhaps even the rest of your life, and keeping to a soft food diet initially will allow for the best possible integration of your implants into your bone and help provide a great outcome long-term.

How long has the All-on-4 procedure been available?

This transformative procedure was created by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, this procedure has safely been performed on hundreds of thousands of patients all the while being improved upon to what you see today.

How do I take care of my All-On-4 teeth?

Taking care of your implants is very easy, but staying consistent is the most important. Similar to how we are supposed to regularly floss and brush natural teeth, you need do the same with the new implants and teeth. Only 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 well-known and popular brand) a few times a day is all it will take.

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

Other than that, regularly follow through with your doctor consistently throughout the year for quick evaluations of your new implant teeth.

What will my new implant bridges feel like?

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

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

Though your experience may vary, most patients can expect some discomfort and possible swelling afterwards. Many patients return the next day for their post op appointment reporting minimal soreness. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you are a candidate for it, the doctor will provide a steroid injection which will: help with pain and swelling for the first days of recovery.

Will there be pain after the procedure?

While experiences will vary, you should expect some discomfort and possibly swelling afterwards. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up examination reporting minimal discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you are a candidate for it, the doctor will give you a steroid injection which come in every six months to have your teeth examined and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new teeth and implants.

What recovery time can I expect with dental implants?

This will vary from person to person, but, overall, the recovery period is faster and easier with this procedure compared to other full arch or full mouth replacement options. This is mostly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws by your implants. Classic dentures and implant dentures both require adjustment periods during which time the dentures can move and lead to sore spots. Generally, pain should subside mostly within one to two, with complete healing commonly after six months.

What is the difference between Springdale Dentures and Implants vs. a general dental practice that has a wide scope of dental services?

Our practice is limited to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and specifically "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and we are regularly working to ensure our patients get the best possible results. Many dental practices will refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have complicated pricing. They can take many months or even years to complete the procedure while charging you 50-100% more. Your doctor performs the entire procedure from surgery to final teeth. We provide an on-site lab and experienced lab technician, to provide affordable and transparent pricing. By providing all these services under one roof, we are able to deliver the best service at the best price.

What is the difference between Springdale Dentures and Implants and national dental implant offices?

Springdale Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the national implant practices by limiting our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. We have an on-site dental lab, very competitive pricing, and same day teeth. However, our office is privately owned, and every patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. Our team focuses on the gratification of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. At corporate implant practices, there is no guarantee that you will be seen by the same dentist who has the great online reviews or whom your friend recommended you to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and the team will do everything to make sure you are thrilled with your new 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 with caution at any office that recommends mini dental implants as a permanent implant solution. They have a very high failure and complication rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, are a fantastic option for some patients. Our office also provides this service and have an entire page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. These may be a more economical alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How often should I have my new teeth cleaned professionally?

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

Can dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails within the first year, your dentist will replace it for free.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva is perfectly normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as foreign material and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put to sleep for my procedure?

We do not currently use general anesthesia, we do, however, offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. This medication will help relax you and typically makes it so you won't remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you to and from for your procedure, due to the 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 implants the day of the procedure?

Most cases will be attached immediately. In certain situations, mainly dependent on your bone quality and volume, we will not be able to install your dental bridge(s) the same day and you will need to wear an interim healing denture while your new implants bond to your bone. Our doctor will go over this in-depth at your exam.

How long can I expect to bleed after surgery?

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

Will I know how to use my prosthetic teeth right away?

Just as you will 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 these are rigidly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get comfortable with of all the full-arch implant options.

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

Again, this will take some time, but with some patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will adjust quickly. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing words like "sarcastic" and "stupendous" will help you get accustomed to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a slight lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

How long after my procedure should I wait to use a water flosser or Waterpik?

You should wait 6 weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with a water flosser.

Am I too young for this procedure?

No, this is not just a procedure for the elderly. 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 very beneficial to your overall physical health, and being able to smile, laugh, and converse confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your emotional health.

What would be helpful to have ready for after my procedure?

  • Ice packs

  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing away

     

  • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing out

     

  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my prosthetic teeth be made from?

The final bridge is made out of zirconia. Zirconia is a much stronger and more stain resistant material than traditional acrylic All-On-4 implants that many offices provide. If you select another provider, be certain you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do get acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with another office, expect to see staining around your teeth and to have them replaced every five to ten years. Also, be certain you know the total price you're going to pay for the procedure, temporaries, and final teeth. Other providers will charge you a base fee only for you to find you owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for your final teeth.

How much can I expect to pay for the All-On-4 procedure?

The entire cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost will be $39,000. Both prices include removing any remaining teeth, placing your implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and the fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Other providers may charge a surgery fee, temporary fee, and then surprise you afterward with another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is completely transparent, and we will not surprise you with any additional fees.

How can I get permanent teeth in a single day? I thought dental implants needed to heal?

What is unique about this procedure, and what allows us to attach to your metal implants immediately, is that all of your implants will be rigidly splinted together by the new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the implants that can lead to failure early on. Essentially, your implants and bridge support one another.

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

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

Many patients that have been told they aren't candidates for dental implants are actually wonderful candidates for our "Teeth in a Day" procedure. A combination of using angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is denser lets us complete the procedure for many patients that thought implants were not an option. We can usually perform this procedure without needing expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a free dental exam to learn if you are a candidate.

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

Yes! Completing all steps in the same day is our preferred method of doing this procedure with the best outcome. With the advanced dental implants and materials available today, there is typically no reason to have to wait months or even years to complete the process like patients experienced in the past.

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

No, our doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice exclusively to prosthetics and dental implantology. This area of expertise is their passion, and they have more experience placing 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 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 practices do not have. We have our in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist who performs the procedure start to finish. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer these procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing available. Not only do we have the best prices, we also use only the finest dental implants and materials.

Are there payment plans available?

Yes. Our practice offers a variety of 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.

Do you offer warranties or guarantees?

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

How long will the procedure take?

Usually the surgery is about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making your teeth takes another 2 hours. If we start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often finished around lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we usually finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for the teeth to be made 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 it in the end!

What if I don’t like my new teeth?

Our team does everything in our power to ensure you're thrilled with your new teeth. The teeth you get the same day of surgery 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 out of town offices in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. advertising same day final teeth?

While this is a good service for many patients, if there are complications or teeth breaking, it can be 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 transitional set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure is that you get to test them out and learn what you like/don’t like. For the final zirconia or nano-ceramic teeth, we can provide 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 can come with several serious drawbacks which cannot be ignored.

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

No, they are rigidly attached to your dental implants, which are rigidly anchored to 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 this procedure "teeth in a day" when I don’t get my final teeth until 4-6 months after the surgery?

It is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported functional prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. Since there can often significant changes in 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 from acrylic and can chip, crack, and sometimes break. This can be 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 get damaged, it’s very uncommon. These materials are among the most durable and strongest substances available in the dental world.

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

Unfortunately, no. As your current dental implants will not be the correct position required by this procedure, and as bone reduction will be necessary, 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 dental implants.

Can food get under my All-On-4 bridge(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in the mouth can get some amount of food under it. You can rinse with water to remove food from under your bridge(s), and cleaning daily with a water flosser will be part of your long-term hygiene regimen.

How much time should I take off work to recover after surgery?

Of all complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required before returning to work. Typically 4-7 days is enough. With that said, as there is always a chance of bruising and swelling, and you’ll need to become accustomed 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 typically takes between four and six 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 your temporary bridge(s) for 4 months which provides time for the implants to integrate with your bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a stable, long-term position before we create your final teeth. Having this recovery time ensures the closest possible fit for your final bridge(s). After the healing time, we will begin producing your permanent teeth. This involves multiple appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help us design the smile you want for your final teeth.

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.
