What are Same Day Implants?

The All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows most patients to have all remaining teeth removed, implants placed, and a beautiful, fixed, functional smile delivered in only a single day! The All-On-4 procedure has the ability not only to give patients a stunning smile, but also provide a new outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, and broken teeth. For them, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” can be the best solution to have a new smile and fix the dental problems that have bothered them for years.

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

The technique involves removing any remaining teeth, adding 4-6 implants per arch, and affixing a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are typically added at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also eliminates the need for expensive bone grafting with long healing times.

The standard All-On-4 treatment incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on knowledge and experience to provide an even better outcome for our patients. At Sarasota Dentures and Implants, we meticulously analyze each and every case and base the treatment on each 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 your jawbones and your mouth heals. After the 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 offered at competing dental implant offices. Zirconia also offers a more natural, life-like finished product and is more sanitary and resistant to staining. This means they will last longer and look better than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges common at competing dental implant practices.

Am I a Candidate?

Most patients will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. Our doctor will use a combination of angled and straight implants to avoid the sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Utilizing this method often removes the need for costly and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth immediately?

Yes! However, while your dental implants and teeth are firmly placed immediately, we kindly request that you stick to a soft foods diet throughout the four month healing timeframe. So what does that mean? A general rule of thumb is you can eat any food that can be can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing into a treatment that can last you many decades, even the rest of your life, and keeping to a softer diet during the healing period will allow for the best possible union your implants into your bone and help establish a fantastic long-term outcome.

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

This life-changing procedure was developed by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, it has safely been performed on hundreds of thousands of patients and has been improved upon to the method we use today.

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

Maintaining your implants is simple, however staying consistent is the most important. Just like how we are supposed to routinely floss and brush natural teeth, you should do the same with your All-On-4 teeth and implants. A few minutes a day is all you will need to keep your dental implants healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a very popular, well-known brand) a few times daily is all that's required.

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

Besides that, simply follow through with your doctor consistently during the year for quick examinations of your new dental implants.

What do the new implant teeth feel like?

Your new implant bridges will bring a new sensation and will take a few days or sometimes several weeks to become accustomed to.

Can I expect a lot of pain with the procedure?

While you can expect moderate pain, it is similar to the pain common with standard teeth extractions. We use a combination of medications to help control your pain and keep you as comfortable as possible.

Will there be pain after this procedure?

While your experience may vary some, most patients can expect some soreness and slight swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the next day for their post op exam reporting minimal pain. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you’re a candidate for it, the doctor will offer a steroid injection which will: help with swelling and pain for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like with this procedure?

Experiences will vary from patient to patient, but, most often, the recovery period is faster and easier with All-on-4 implants than other full arch or full mouth replacement alternatives. This is mostly due to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws by the implants. Conventional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time they can move and lead to sore spots. Your pain should decline for the most part within 1-2 weeks, with complete healing typically after six months.

What is the difference between Sarasota Dentures and Implants and another local practice that has a wide range of dental services?

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

What is the difference between your practice and corporate dental implant practices?

Sarasota Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the corporate dental implant centers by limiting our practice to dental prosthetics and implants. Our practice has an on-site dental prosthetic lab, competitive pricing, and same day teeth. The advantage is, we are privately owned, and each and every patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. Our team focuses on the satisfaction of our patients instead of shareholders, sales quotas, and cost cutting. With national implant practices, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same doctor who has the great reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and our team will do everything to be certain you are thrilled with your new teeth and take care of you like family.

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

Mini dental implants are not related to our All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day " procedure. Please proceed with caution at any office recommending mini dental implants as a permanent restoration 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 an entire page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. These can be a more economical alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How frequently should I get my dental implants professionally cleaned?

Plan to (visit us every 6 months to have your implants examined and cleaned. This will help ensure the longevity of your new implants and teeth.

Can implants fail?

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

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

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

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This 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 my procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer both IV and oral conscious sedation. To learn more about these options click here. The medicine will help to relax you and typically makes it so you don’t remember your procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver to and from for this procedure, due to 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 implants the day of the procedure?

In most cases these will be attached straightaway. In certain situations, mainly depending on the quality of your bone and quantity, we would not be able to attach your dental bridge(s) the same day and you will need to wear an interim healing denture while your implants bond to your bone. Our doctor will review this thoroughly during your evaluation.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

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

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

Just as you would need practice to get used to walking 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 firmly 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 know how to speak with my new teeth right away?

Again, this will take a little 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 used to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a small lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

Patients should wait six weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with your water flosser.

Am I too young for the dental implants?

No, this is not only for senior citizens. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, and 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be very beneficial to your long-term physical health, and being able to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your emotional health.

What would be helpful to have ready ahead of my procedure?

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

What will my final teeth be made of?

We make the final bridge from zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than traditional acrylic All-On-4 implants which many providers offer. If you select a competing provider, be certain you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do get acrylic prosthetic teeth with a titanium bar with another office, you can expect to have staining around the teeth and to have them replaced every 5-10 years. Also, be certain you understand how much you are going to pay for the operation, temporaries, and final prosthetics. Many providers will charge you a base fee only for you to find you owe another $5,000-$15,000 for your new teeth.

How much does the All-On-4 procedure cost?

The full cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both 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 will charge an operation fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with yet another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will not surprise you with any extra fees.

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

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

Your dental implants are made from titanium, the same metal used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your jaw will naturally grow around and bond with them over time.

What if a different provider has said that I am not a candidate or do not have enough bone for implants?

Many patients that have been told they aren't candidates for other dental implants are actually great candidates for our All-On-4 procedure. A combination of using angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense allows us to complete the procedure for many patients who thought implants were not right for them. Our team can typically perform the procedure without needing expensive grafting which delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a free dental exam to see if you are a candidate.

Can the extractions, implants, and new teeth really be completed in just one day?

Yes! This is our preferred method of performing this procedure with the best final result. With the leading dental implants and materials available today, there is usually no reason for you to wait months or even years to complete the process like patients experienced in the past.

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

No, our doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice exclusively to dental implantology and prosthetics. 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 other dental specialists to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their situation.

How do you provide the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" dental implant procedure for so much less than other local offices?

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 that performs the procedure start to finish. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer advanced dental implant 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 materials.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. We offer multiple 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 provide guarantees or warranties?

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

How long does the All-on-4 procedure take?

Typically the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes another 2 hours. If we start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are usually done by lunch time. If we are replacing both upper and lower teeth, we typically finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Most of this time is waiting for the teeth to be made in our lab and trying them in to be certain your smile is exactly how you want it. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth it in the end!

What if I don’t like my new teeth?

We do everything in our power to ensure you love your new smile. The teeth you receive the same day of the procedure are only a temporary/transitional set. When our lab fabricates your final teeth, you will have complete control of the design and appearance of them.

What about out of town practices in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. advertising same day final teeth?

While this can be a good fit for some patients, if there are complications or broken teeth, it is very difficult to fix 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 surgery is that you get to test them out and see 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 can be great to get your final teeth immediately, it does come with some significant drawbacks that cannot be ignored.

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

No, they are rigidly attached to your implants, which are firmly anchored to your jaw. If your new teeth begin moving 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 won’t receive my permanent teeth until 4-6 months after my procedure?

The procedure is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth the same day. As there can 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 final teeth.

Can the temporary teeth be damaged?

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

Can the permanent teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for nano-ceramic and zirconia to get damaged, it’s very rare. Zirconia and nano-ceramic are among the most durable and strongest materials available in dentistry.

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

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

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

No, you cannot remove these yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. They are secured to your 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 included in your long-term hygiene routine.

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

Of all the complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 tends to have the shortest time required before returning to work. Usually 4-7 days is sufficient. With that said, as there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you’ll need to get used to eating and speaking with your new teeth, the more time you can take off, the better.

All-On-4 Procedure

Timeline

The procedure itself typically takes 4-6 hours depending on whether you are having a single arch completed (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, the temporary teeth will be securely attached to your new implants. You will wear the temporary bridge(s) for 4 months to allow time for the implants to fuse with your bone and for your jaws and gums to heal into a stable, long-term position before we create your final bridge(s). Allowing this recovery time ensures the best possible fit for the final teeth. After this healing time, we will begin producing your final teeth. This involves a few appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help our team design the smile you want for your permanent 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.
