Frequently Asked Questions

What are Same Day Implants?

The “Teeth in a Day,” All-On-4 procedure allows most patients to have their remaining teeth removed, implants placed, and a stunning, fixed, functional smile delivered in only a single day! This technique has the ability not only to provide patients with a beautiful smile, but also provide a renewed outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, or fractured teeth. For these patients, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” can be the best answer to have a new smile and fix the dental problems of the past.

 

  • Best aesthetics/looks | Looks and feels the most like natural teeth.
  • Non-removable | Can’t move in and out of your mouth like a denture.
  • No long recovery times before you can use your new implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing capability of all full arch/full mouth teeth replacement options.
  • Needs the smallest amount of bone | Great for those who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get dental implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How Same Day Dental Implants Work

The technique includes removing all remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often placed at specific angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also removes the necessity for expensive bone grafting with extended healing times.

The standard All-On-4 procedure involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth overlaid upon a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on knowledge and experience to provide an improved outcome for our patients. At Prescott Dentures and Implants, we carefully review every single case and base our 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 used while the implants integrate with your jawbones and your mouth heals. After 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 used by most other dental implant offices. Zirconia also provides a more natural, life-like finished product 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 other dental implant offices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most people will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. Our doctor will use a blend of straight and angled implants to avoid the sinuses and use the strongest bone. Utilizing this technique often eliminates the need for expensive 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

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

Yes! However, although your dental implants and new teeth are securely placed from day one, we do request that you keep up a soft foods diet throughout the 4 month healing timeframe. So what do we mean? A simple guide is that you can eat any food that can be can cut with the side of a plastic fork. The reason for this is that you're investing in a treatment that can last you decades, possibly the rest of your life, and keeping to a soft food diet during the healing period will allow for the best union your implants into the bone and help provide a great long-term outcome.

For how long has this procedure been around?

This life-changing solution was developed by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since that time, this procedure has safely been performed on hundreds of thousands of patients and has been improved upon to what you see today.

How do I care for my All-On-4 teeth?

Caring for your implants is very easy, but consistency is key. Similar to how we’re supposed to regularly brush and floss natural teeth, you should do the same with your new implants and teeth. Only few minutes daily is all you will need to keep your implants and mouth healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft bristle tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a very popular, well-known brand) a few times a day is all that's required.

Smoking can escalate the risk of implant problems, so we recommend not smoking with dental implants. Patients with diabetes should also be made aware of an increased risk for complications with dental implants. Controlling your diabetes is very important for the long-term success of your implants.

Other than that, simply follow up with your doctor consistently during the year for quick evaluations of your new implant teeth.

What will my new implant teeth feel like?

Your new implant bridges will be a new sensation which will take several days or sometimes a few weeks to get used to.

Is there a lot of pain with the procedure?

Although there will be 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 our patients as comfortable as we can.

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

While your experience may vary, most patients can expect mild soreness and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the following day for their post op exam reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you are a candidate for it, your doctor will offer a steroid shot which will: help with swelling and pain for the first few days.

What recovery time can I expect for All-on-4 dental implants?

Experiences will vary from person to person, but, generally speaking, the recovery period is faster and easier with All-on-4 implants compared to other full arch or full mouth restoration options. This is mainly due to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via your implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require recovery periods during which time the dentures can move and cause sore spots. The pain should decline for the most part within 1-2 weeks, with complete healing commonly after 6 months.

What is the difference between your practice and a general dental office offering a wide range of dental services?

Our practice is limited to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and particularly "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is constantly working to ensure our patients receive the best results possible. Many offices will refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They will take many months or even years to complete your procedure all the while charging you 50-100% more. Your dental surgeon performs your procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an in-house lab and expert lab technician, along with transparent and affordable pricing. By providing all this at one location, our office is able to deliver the best service at the best price.

What is the difference between your practice and national implant practices?

Prescott Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the corporate dental implant centers by limiting our practice to dental prosthetics and implants. Our office has an on-site dental prosthetic lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. The advantage is, our office is privately owned, and every patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. We focus on the satisfaction of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. At corporate implant centers, there is no guarantee that you'll be seen by the same dentist who has the great online reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your complete procedure and the team will do everything to be certain you are thrilled with your smile and take care of 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 restoration solution. These have a very high complication and failure rate.

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

How often should I get my new teeth cleaned professionally?

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

Can dental implants fail?

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

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

If your implant fails during the first year, your doctor 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 body senses it as foreign material and is trying to “flush” it out. This increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put to sleep for the procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. This medication will help to relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember your procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver for this procedure, someone who can drive you after you have taken your 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 same day as the procedure?

Most cases will be attached straightaway. In certain cases, mostly dependent on your bone quality and quantity, we would not be able to install your bridge(s) the same day and you will need to wear a temporary healing denture while your implants fuse to the bone. Your doctor will go over this thoroughly during your evaluation.

How long will I bleed after surgery?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave our office, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. In addition, you will most likely have increased salivation when we first place your temporary teeth. When this increased saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

Will I automatically know how to use my new teeth immediately?

Just like you would need practice to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to get used to your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since these are firmly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get used to of all our full-arch replacement options.

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

Again, this will take some time, but with some practice and patience, your mouth and tongue will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing words like "sixty-six" and "sarcastic" can help you get used 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 expect to wait 6 weeks after the procedure before beginning to clean a water flosser.

I feel like I’m too young for this procedure?

No, this is not only for senior citizens. It’s actually quite 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 long-term health, and having the ability to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your emotional health.

What should I have ready for after the procedure?

  • Ice packs
  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing out
  • Comfortable clothes you wouldn't mind throwing away
  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my new teeth be made from?

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 that many offices provide. If you select another provider, make sure you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do get acrylic prosthetic teeth with a titanium bar with a different office, you can expect to have staining around the teeth and to replace them every five to ten years. Also, be certain you understand how much you're going to pay for the procedure, temporaries, and final teeth. Other practices may charge you a base fee only for you to find you owe another $5,000-$15,000 for the final product.

How much does the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" procedure cost?

The entire cost for the single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both arches, the total cost is $39,000. These prices include removing any remaining teeth, placing the implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and your fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Other practices may charge a surgery fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will never surprise you with any extra costs.

How can I get permanent teeth in a single day? I thought the implants had to heal?

The unique thing about this procedure, and what allows us to attach teeth your implants from day one, is that all of your implants will be rigidly splinted together by your 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 dental bridge support one another.

The dental implants are made from titanium, the same material used in artificial knee and hip joints, so your jawbone will naturally grow around and bond with them over time.

What if another dentist has said that I am not a candidate for this or do not have enough bone for implants?

The majority of patients who have been advised they aren't candidates for other dental implants are actually good candidates for the "Teeth in a Day" procedure. A combination of using angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense lets us complete the procedure for many patients who thought it was not an option for them. Our team can usually perform this procedure without the need for expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or years. Please come see us for a free consultation to see if you are a candidate.

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

Yes! This is our preferred way of performing this procedure to support the best final result. With the leading dental implants and materials available today, there is often no reason to have to wait months or even years to go through the process like you had to do in the past.

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

No, the doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice to dental implantology and prosthetics. Dental implantology is their passion, and they have more experience placing dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In limited select cases, the doctor will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their situation.

How can we provide the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" dental implant procedure for far less than other local dental practices?

Because of the high number of these procedures we perform and limiting our practice to these procedures, we have advantages that other offices simply do not. Our office has in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist who performs the entire procedure. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer dental implant 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 zirconia teeth.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. Our practice offers multiple 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 provide guarantees or warranties?

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

How long does the procedure take?

Typically the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making your teeth takes another 2 hours. If we begin in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often finished around lunch time. If we are replacing both upper and lower teeth, we typically finish closer to 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for the teeth to be created in our lab and trying them in to ensure your smile is just right. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth it in the end!

What if I'm not happy with my new teeth?

Our team does everything in our power to ensure you love your new smile. The teeth you get 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. offering same day final teeth?

While this can be a good service for some patients, in the rare case of complications or teeth breaking, it can be very difficult to deal with if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local offices will not be willing to repair another office's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure is you get to test them out and see what you like/don’t like. For the final zirconia or nano-ceramic teeth, we can offer try-ins to ensure that your teeth look exactly like you want them to look. While it’s great to get your final teeth immediately, it does come with some serious drawbacks that cannot be ignored.

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

No, they are rigidly attached to your implants, which are firmly anchored to your jaw. If your All-On-4 teeth begin rocking for any reason, call us so we can schedule an evaluation.

Why do you call it "teeth in a day" when I don’t receive my permanent teeth until 4-6 months after the surgery?

This is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. As there can often major changes in your mouth during the implant integration and healing phase, it is best to begin with a temporary set of teeth. This helps ensure the best long-term outcome with your final teeth.

Can my temporary teeth get damaged?

Yes, your temporary teeth are made from acrylic and can chip, crack, and occasionally break. This is very common. The great 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 my permanent teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to get damaged, it’s extremely rare. These materials are among the strongest and most durable 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 proper position required by this procedure, and since 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 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 get food out from under your bridge(s), and cleaning daily with a water flosser will be included in your long-term hygiene regimen.

How long should I take off work to recover after surgery?

Of all full arch replacement options, All-On-4 tends to have the shortest time required to recover. Usually 4-7 days is sufficient. That being said, since there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to become accustomed to eating and speaking with your new teeth, the longer you can take off, the better.

All-On-4 Procedure

Timeline

The procedure itself usually takes between four and six hours depending if you are getting a single arch completed (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, the temporary bridge(s) will be securely attached to your new implants. You will wear the temporary bridge(s) for 4 months which provides time for the dental implants to integrate with your bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a strong, long-term position before we make your permanent teeth. Having this recovery time ensures the closest possible fit for the final teeth. After the recovery time, we will begin fabricating the final teeth. This involves multiple appointments over a five to six week period, during which time you’ll help us design the smile you want 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.
