All-on-4 Implants/New Teeth in One Day
Imagine replacing all of your unhealthy teeth or removable dentures with fixed beautiful new teeth in just one day…with only 4 implants and no bone grafting!
In one day, patients can leave our office with a beautiful smile and new teeth that feel and function like permanent teeth. The All-on-4 procedure is a non-removable dental implant option designed to maximize the use of available bone with just 4 implants per dental arch. What’s most surprising to patients is that the teeth can be attached to the implants the same day! The patient comes to the office in the morning and leaves in the afternoon ready to smile, laugh and eat.
Even those patients who have been told by past dentists, “You don’t have enough bone for dental implants” are now able to routinely be treated by utilizing this technique. Today, virtually all removable denture patients, those who are about to lose all of their teeth, and even those with severe bone loss from gum disease can have the answer they have been seeking with this one procedure.
All-on-4 Full Mouth Reconstruction is a unique use of high-tech dental implant technology that mirrors the natural placement and structure of your teeth, to provide you with a permanent replacement that looks and feels fantastic. You can say goodbye to missing teeth and feel confident in your smile!
This method consists of four dental implants positioned at precise angles in your jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation for your bite. The All-on-4 dental implants method is designed to integrate the implants organically with your mouth in a way similar to that of your natural tooth roots.
This adds a level of strength and security that can’t be achieved with old-fashioned non-implant supported dentures. Following the placement of the 4 dental implants, and a brief healing period, we then place the permanent dental prosthesis on top of the implant bases.
What are the benefits of All-on-4 Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Some patients choose the All-on-4 method of teeth replacement because it can integrate with your existing denture prosthesis, while others prefer it because it provides a more permanent structure for new teeth than standard dentures. There are many great benefits to choosing All-on-4 for your complete smile makeover, and we’ll share just a few of them below:

Is All-on-4 a tried and tested technique, what is the history?
The All-on-4 dental implant technique has been used in practice for more than 17 years now and was first developed in the late 1990s by dental implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare and Portuguese implant dentist, Dr Paulo Malo using a combination of bio-mechanics, computer simulation and extensive clinical research.
The results of their studies provided patients with high quality full teeth restoration without the use of bone grafting (which otherwise may have been required) all on one day. This was a breakthrough in implant dentistry offering patients a safe, immediate and cost effective way to replace all their missing teeth. Although the All-on-4 technique is something that cannot be performed by all implant surgeons and requires additional skill and technology, those practitioners who use this technique have reported a very high success rate.
