All-On-4: New Teeth In One Day
What is the All-On-4 Procedure?
The All-On-4 procedure is the modern way to replace all of your missing teeth and ditch removable, cup-soaked dentures. All-On-4 permanently affixes top and bottom prosthetic teeth using only four dental implants. All-On-4 teeth look, feel, and function like regular teeth and are far more effective than traditional dentures. Other than your brand-new smile, the beauty of permanently replacing all of your teeth with only four dental implants is that we can have you in-and-out in one day. Plus, the hygiene requirements are the same as regular teeth - brushing, rinsing, flossing, etc.
Why would I need All-On-4?
Although this procedure takes only one day to complete, is minimally invasive, and not nearly as painful as other procedures, it's not for everyone. Sometimes a traditional dental implant or fixed bridge is all you really need.
If you're dealing with either of these issues, Dr. Hood might recommend the All-On-4 procedure:
- You currently wear dentures due to the loss of teeth
- You're losing your teeth to tooth decay and gum disease
