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.

I went to have my wisdom teeth removed and it was the most pleasant experience. The staff and physician were very friendly and immediately put me at ease. The office was beautiful and exceptionally clean and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone and everyone!

What can I say? No one likes to visit the dentist…especially for anything other than having their teeth cleaned. I am no different. Hated that I had to have a tooth taken out but it was necessary. I was referred here by my dentist to see Dr. Loveless. If I ever have to have anything else done from an oral surgeon, I would never wish to see anyone else. Dr. Loveless and his staff not only made me feel less anxious but they were super nice and made sure that I knew everything that was being done. I would refer them to anyone with complete confidence! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I want to tell them all thank you for making this process much easier on me. Just an amazing staff and surgeon!!

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.

My father had gone for a root canal the night before and a root fracture was discovered so the tooth could not be saved. We called the next morning to set up an oral surgery appointment and Dr. Loveless was able to accommodate him the same day. The staff explained everything in great detail regarding finances and post operative instructions. Dr. Loveless also discovered another area of concern and removed an additional tooth. This was extremely helpful since my dad is on blood thinners and we really wanted to avoid having to make two trips. Very clean office as well. Will recommend everyone we know to the practice.

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!

Dr. Loveless and his team were amazing! I was a new patient and called to see if I could get in right away to remove a wisdom tooth. It was an emergency, and they got me in within the hour!! The staff through out my whole experience, from the front desk to the dental assistants, were GREAT!!!! The office was fresh and clean. I highly recommend Dr. Loveless if you’re looking for an oral surgeon.

Great place. Super nice staff and quick procedures. Everyone I know who got surgery done elsewhere was bedridden for a week but I had almost immediate recovery time. Highly recommend this place
