How Same Day Dental Implants Work

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

The traditional All-On-4 technique incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth overlaid upon a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on experience and knowledge to offer an even better outcome for our patients. At Denver Dentures and Implants, we meticulously examine each and every case and base the treatment on each individual patient’s anatomy. The doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be added while the implants integrate with the jawbones and your mouth heals. After the healing is complete, the doctor and lab technician will design your permanent teeth with zirconia, which is much stronger than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth used by competing dental implant offices. Zirconia also gives a more natural, life-like finished product and is more hygienic and resistant to staining. This means they will look better and last longer 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. The doctor will use a blend of angled and straight implants to avoid your sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Using this method typically removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

All-On-4 Cost

Our pricing includes all extractions, as many implants as needed, fixed temporary teeth, and fixed final teeth.

E

This pricing is the best in Denver while also offering the best end result. We can accomplish this by having an extensively trained dentist who does the full procedure from beginning to end along with an experienced in-house dental lab technician. Our team has performed this procedure from beginning to end together many, many times.

For the final teeth, you, your dentist, and the in-house lab technician will work together to design your perfect smile. While competing offices still use acrylic denture teeth over titanium bars, we use zirconia which offers the best in appearance, durability, and resistance to staining. Upgrading to zirconia usually costs much more at other practices. At Denver Dentures and Implants, they’re our standard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to eat with my new teeth from day one?

Yes! However, while your dental implants and teeth are firmly in place from day one, we kindly request that you stick to a softer diet during the four month healing timeframe. What exactly does that mean? A good general rule is you can eat any food that can be can cut with a plastic fork. The reason for this is that you are investing into a treatment which can last for many decades, possibly the rest of your life, and keeping to this soft diet initially will allow the best union your implants into the bone and help establish a wonderful outcome long-term.

For how long has the All-on-4 procedure been available?

This transformative solution was created by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, it has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of people and has been improved upon to what you see today.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Taking care of your teeth is simple, but staying consistent is the key. Just like how we’re supposed to routinely floss and brush natural teeth, you should do this with the All-On-4 teeth and implants. Only few minutes daily is all you will need to keep your implants and mouth healthy. Regularly brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a well-known and popular brand) a few times a day is all it takes.

Cigarette smoking can increase the risk of implant problems, so we do not recommend smoking with dental implants. Patients with diabetes should also be aware of an increased risk for complications with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is very important for the long-term success of your dental implants.

Besides that, simply follow through with your doctor consistently throughout the year for quick examinations of your new All-on-4 implants.

What will my new implant bridges feel like?

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

Is there excessive pain with this procedure?

While there will be moderate pain, it is similar to the pain common with dental extractions. We use a combination of medications to help control your pain and keep you as comfortable as we can.

Can I expect pain after the procedure?

Though your experience may vary, most patients can expect mild discomfort and slight swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up appointment reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you are a good candidate for it, your doctor will provide a steroid shot which will: help alleviate swelling and pain for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like with dental implants?

This will vary from person to person, but, most often, the recovery period is shorter and easier with this procedure than other full arch or full mouth restoration options. This is mainly due to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via the implants. Classic dentures and implant dentures both require adjustment periods during which time the dentures can shift and lead to sore spots. The pain should subside for the most part within 1-2 weeks, with full healing usually after six months.

What is the difference between your practice vs. a traditional dental office offering a wide range of dental services?

Our practice is limited to dental prosthetics and implants. Dental implants, and especially "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is constantly working to ensure our patients get the best results possible. Many practices will often refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They can take many months or even years to complete the procedure while charging you 50-100% more. Our dental surgeon will perform the full procedure from surgery to final teeth. We provide an on-site lab and experienced lab technician, along with transparent and affordable pricing. By providing all this at one location, we are able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

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

At Denver Dentures and Implants, we have the same advantages of the corporate dental implant offices by focusing our practice on dental prosthetics and implants. Our practice has an in-house dental lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. However, we are privately owned, and each patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. We focus on the happiness of our patients instead of shareholders, sales quotas, and cost cutting. At national dental implant offices, there is no guarantee that you'll be treated by the same doctor that has the great online reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your complete procedure and the team will do everything we can to make sure you are happy with your new smile and treat 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 cautiously at any office recommending mini dental implants as a permanent restoration solution. This method has a very high failure and complication rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, can be a good option for some patients. We also provide this option and have a separate page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. These may be a more budget-friendly alternative to the All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implant procedure.

How often should I have my dental implants cleaned professionally?

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

Can implants fail?

While titanium implants do have a 95+% rate of success, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which can contribute to failure:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If an implant fails within the first year, our doctor will replace it at no charge to you.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva is completely normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as a foreign object and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should subside within a few days.

Can I be put to sleep for my procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. To learn more about these options click here. This medication will help relax you and often makes it so you won't even remember the procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can fill it at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for your procedure, due to the 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?

In most cases these will be attached immediately. In certain situations, mostly depending on the quality of your bone and volume, we would not be able to install your dental bridge(s) the same day and you'll need to wear an interim healing denture while your implants bond to your bone. Your doctor will go over this in-depth at your examination.

How long can I expect to bleed after surgery?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely have increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this increased saliva mixes with a small amount of blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If you experience heavy bleeding, please call our office.

Will I know how to use my prosthetic teeth immediately?

Just like you will need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to become accustomed with your prosthetic teeth. With that being said, since these are firmly attached to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get comfortable with of all the full-arch restoration options.

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

Again, this will take some time, but with a little practice and patience, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like "stupendous" and "Mississippi" will help you get used to your prosthetic teeth. In a few cases, patients may have a slight lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

You should wait 6 weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with a water flosser.

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

No, this is not just a procedure for senior citizens. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, even 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be immensely beneficial to your overall physical health, and being able to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your psychological health.

What should I have ready ahead of 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 final teeth be made of?

We make the final bridge out of zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than conventional acrylic All-On-4 implants which many offices provide. If you choose another office, be certain you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do get acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar at another office, you can expect to have staining surrounding your teeth and to replace them every 5-10 years. Also, be certain you understand how much you are going to pay for the procedure, temporary teeth, and final prosthetics. Other practices may charge you a base fee only for you to find out you owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for the final product.

How much does the "Teeth in a Day" procedure cost?

The full cost for the single arch (upper or lower) is $18,000. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost will be $32,000. Both prices include removing any remaining teeth, placing the implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and your fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Many providers often charge a surgery fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with yet another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is entirely transparent, and we will never surprise you with any additional costs.

*Cost varies and based on material.

How can I get fixed teeth in one day? I thought the implants needed time to heal?

What is unique about this procedure, and what allows us to attach to your metal implants immediately, is that all of the implants will be rigidly splinted together by the new teeth (the implant bridge). Splinting them together 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 will be made from titanium, the same metal used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your bone will naturally grow around and bond with them over time.

What if a different dentist has said that I'm not a candidate or do not have enough bone for dental implants?

Many patients that have been advised they are not candidates for other dental implants are actually great candidates for our All-On-4 procedure. The combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw where the bone is denser allows us to perform the procedure for many patients who thought implants were not right for them. Our team can usually perform this procedure without needing expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please visit us for a complimentary dental exam to learn if you are a candidate.

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

Yes! Completing all steps in the same day is our preferred way of performing this procedure to support an ideal outcome. With the leading dental implants and materials available today, there is often no reason for you to wait months or even years to complete the process like you had to do 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 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 limited select cases, they will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their situation.

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

By performing a high number of these procedures and limiting our practice exclusively these procedures, we have advantages that other practices do not have. Our office has in-house lab and lab technician and a single dentist that performs the procedure start to finish. These efficiencies allows us to offer All-on-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing. Not only do we have the lowest prices, we also use only the finest dental implants and zirconia teeth.

Are payment plans available?

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 offer guarantees or warranties?

If a dental implant fails 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 every 6 months for hygiene and maintenance of their bridges and implants. The warranty does not apply to patients that 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?

Usually the surgery is about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making your teeth takes another 2 hours. If we start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are usually finished around 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 produced in our lab and trying them in to ensure your smile is just right. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth the final product!

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

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

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

While this is a good service for some patients, if there are complications or teeth breaking, it is 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 surgery is that you get to test them out and discover 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 the way you want them to look. While it’s great to get your final teeth immediately, doing this does come with several significant downsides which cannot be overlooked.

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

No, these are firmly 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 schedule an exam.

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

It is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you are receiving a set of implant-supported functional prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. As there are often major changes to your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a transitional 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 from acrylic and can chip, crack, and sometimes break. This can be very common. The best thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can easily be repaired. If you have any issues with your temporary, just give us a call and we’ll get it repaired right away.

Can the final teeth get damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to get damaged, it’s extremely uncommon. These materials are among the most durable and strongest materials available in the dental world.

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

Unfortunately, no. As your current dental implants will not be the correct position required by this procedure, and since bone reduction will need to be performed, we cannot use your current implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

No, you cannot remove the prosthetics yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. Prosthetic teeth are secured to your implants.

Can food get under my All-On-4 bridge(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in the mouth will 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 regimen.

How long should I take off work for recovery after my procedure?

Of all complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required before returning to work. Generally 4-7 days is enough. With that said, since there is always the chance of swelling and bruising, and you will 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 usually takes 4-6 hours depending if you are having a single arch treated (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, your temporary teeth will be securely attached to your new implants. You will wear your temporary bridge(s) for 4 months which provides time for your implants to integrate with your bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a strong, long-term position before we create your permanent teeth. Allowing this healing time ensures the best possible fit for the permanent bridge(s). After the healing 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.
