Permanent Teeth Using Implant Supported Dentures
Tooth loss is a common concern for many adults. In fact, one out of every four adults over 60 have lost all of their teeth. The good news is the All-On-Four procedure can restore a full arch of permanent teeth in just one day!
All On 4 Implants also known as snap in dentures and implant dentures, all on 4 dentures will help retain a new permanent denture. The first step is a surgical treatment that involves placing four dental implants into the jaw, hence the name All-on-4. If you think you qualify for this type of dental treatment, book a consultation.
Dental implants are frequently accompanied by a dental crown in order to replace a single missing tooth. Possible the best part of the All-On-Four dental implants procedure is that it only requires four dental implants to replace a full arch of teeth. Two implants are placed in the front of the jaw and two are placed in the back of the jaw on either side. The posterior implants are placed at an angle to maximize available bone tissue and help facilitate faster recovery. A fixed denture is then secured to the implants for a brand new, natural-looking smile.
The four strategically placed dental implants will fuse with the living bone tissue in your jaw to prevent further bone loss. All-On-Four patients are able to enjoy immediate function, chewing ability, clear speech, renewed confidence and restored comfort in just one day!

Perhaps the most obvious benefit to the All-On-4 dental implants procedure is the ability to permanently replace one or both full arches of teeth in just one day. Dental implants have been used to replace missing teeth since the 1970s and have a success rate of 98%. Previously, in order to replace an entire arch of teeth, several dental implants were required until the All-On-4 procedure was developed to effectively secure an entire arch of teeth using just four dental implants.
Two implants are placed in the front of the arch and two longer implants are placed in the back of the arch at an angle. This strategic placement of the dental implant increases bone-to-implant contact which significantly reduces the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting, often required by conventional implant-fixed dentures. The use of longer implants in the back of the jaw also opens up procedure candidacy for patients with low jaw bone volume who may have been told they were not suitable candidates for permanent teeth in a day in the past.
Unlike traditional dentures, the permanent teeth in a day procedure do not require the use of adhesives. All-On-4 dental implants patients enjoy their smile results directly after their procedure.
Another incredible benefit to All-On-4 dental implants is the preservation of live jaw bone tissue. Just like the muscles in our body require stimulation to remain strong and healthy, the same goes for the bone tissue in your jaw. Dental implants are fused with the living bone tissue in your jaw and act just like natural tooth roots to prevent bone loss and preserve the facial structure.
How much do All-On-Four dental implants cost? The cost Starts at $19,995 per arch. However, the truth is, every case is different. There is no one definite price we can guarantee all patients over the phone without having been seen by our dentist. The good news is that we offer a free consultation and monthly financing so all you have to do is come into our clinic and speak with one of our doctors who will be able to determine your candidacy, what your procedure will entail and answer any questions or concerns you might have about the All-On-4 procedure. This way, you leave your consultation with a clear and accurate idea of what you can expect out of your treatment and exactly what it will cost.
All-On-Four dental implants cost may vary slightly depending on the complexity of each case and the materials required. In contrast to the previous implant fixed dentures which required 10 or more implants, the All-On-4 procedure requires the surgical placement of only four implants making it more cost-effective, less, complex, less invasive, and allows patients to have a more comfortable, faster recovery.
The cost of All-On-Four dental implants may be daunting for some patients, which is why we offer dental financing options so you can restore your smile to a budget you can afford. During your consultation with our dentist, we’ll explain all available payment options so you can decide which option works best for you. Whatever your budget, we encourage all patients suffering from tooth loss, failing teeth or missing teeth to come in for a free consultation. A brand new revitalized smile may be much more affordable than you think.
The New Teeth in One Day, also known as All-On-4 implant denture, allows edentulous(toothless) or soon to be edentulous patients to come into our clinic the day of your oral surgery and leave that same day with a fully restored smile. This technique involves the surgical placement of four dental implants to secure a permanently fixed denture. Two small titanium implant screws are placed in the front of the jaw and two longer implants are placed at an angle in the back of the jaw. Placing the anterior implants at an angle creates two major advantages for this procedure. Firstly, the surgical placement of an implant at an angle allows for the use of a longer implant, thereby increasing bone-to-implant contact, maximizing available bone tissue for patients with low jaw bone density, and allows the implant to be secured in better quality posterior bone. This alone significantly reduces the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting. New Teeth in One Day simply uses fewer implants, more effectively to provide patients with a less invasive cost effective tooth loss solution.
Secondly, by tilting the two posterior implants, we can provide unmatched support for a complete fixed denture. You may have noticed that work tables that provide support for heavy tools or machinery have the table legs angled outwards. This provides the same concept of an extra degree of stability that angled implants afford your smile. With improved functionality and durability, our patients experience no dietary restrictions from their new smile and can once again smile, and laugh with confidence.
In order to determine your candidacy for the new teeth in a one-day procedure, your dentist will first conduct a smile evaluation and obtain any relevant oral health and medical history. During your consult, you will have any concerns and questions clarified and have an accurate understanding of what your procedure will cost with no surprise fees.
Diagnostics - CT scans are then taken to display 3D images of your jawbone to obtain critical information such as the positioning of replacement teeth, nerves, sinuses and bone structure to best determine the ideal position and location of each of the four implants. Once you are provided with your pre-operative and post-operative instructions, you are ready to schedule your oral surgery.
Oral Surgery - Any additional procedures required to complete your new teeth in a day procedure, such as extractions, will be performed the same day of your surgery while you are fully sedated. You will leave your surgical appointment with a brand new set of beautiful, fully functioning teeth.
Post- Procedure - As you recover from your dental implant surgery, the implants will undergo a period called osseointegration where they will fuse with the bone tissue in your jaw and permanently anchor your replacement teeth just like natural tooth roots. Post-operative check-ups will be scheduled to ensure your steady recovery and optimum results.
