All-On-Four®, Teeth in a Day


What is All-On-Four®?

All-On-Four teeth in a day is a trademark name coined by Nobel Biocare, one of several large Implant Companies. The All-on-Four Method of teeth replacement is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth with at least four dental implants. The implants are specifically placed to each be able to support multiple teeth in the arch. A full arch prosthesis is fixed to the dental implants on the day of surgery. It stays in and can only be removed by your dentist. The temporary prosthesis is replaced with a permanent one after the implants have integrated with the bone.

Am I a candidate for the All-On-Four® treatment?

Some people who have multiple missing or decayed teeth face an uphill battle when it comes to getting their smile back.  Oftentimes patients are faced with the choice between removable dentures or thousands of dollars to restore and replace teeth that may end up needing repair again in just a few years. If you are looking at replacing multiple teeth or currently have dentures and want a permanent option that is not removable, you are probably a candidate for the All-on-Four full arch replacement.

How long will it take to restore my smile?

Conventionally, implants take 6-8 months before teeth can be secured to them. Another name for the All-On-Four treatment is Teeth-in-a-Day because the entire process can be completed in one procedure. The legwork is done in advance through coordination between your dentist and your surgeon. On the day of surgery, you can have teeth fixed directly onto the implants. You will come to the office with your current smile and you can leave the same day with your new one!

What If I’ve been told I don’t have enough bone for dental implants?

The All-On-Four concept was created specifically for patients that have significant bone loss or atrophy. Because of the way the implants are placed, major bone grafting is usually not necessary. Sinus lifts and ridge augmentations are often avoidable with the All-On-Four solution.

How do I get started?

Call our office for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for dental implants. During that visit we will discuss all the risks benefits and alternatives of treatment. Our treatment coordinators will contact your insurance company to develop with a treatment estimate and work with you to provide financing if necessary.

Dr. Loveless did an amazing job. I needed a wisdom tooth extracted that had a large cavity. He got it out whole in less than 1 minute. He is great. His staff is wonderful too. My whole experience was great. I will refer anyone that needs an oral surgeon!

My experience with the ladies and Doctor Loveless was great. I had never been put under by anesthesia before and they made me comfortable and very relaxed. They took care of me from the beginning consultation to leaving minus 4 teeth. Thankfully Dr. Loveless is a younger man so he will hopefully be around to treat my children with the same care, someday.

Dr. Loveless,

Thank you for making my tooth extraction so quick and easy. I was expecting a lot of pain. Haven’t experienced any residual pain, either since I woke up the following morning. You should hang a shingle stating “painless Dentist”!! Also, your staff is so kind and attentive. I would definitely come back when needed, and recommend you to anyone in need. Though I don’t wish that pre-surgery pain on any person (or animal) for that matter!

Very friendly staff. Doctor spent time to explain and answer questions. Easy to make an appointment. Easy to get a recheck. Staff and Doctor made themselves readily available for questions after surgery even during holidays.
