Frequently Asked Questions

What are All-On-4 Implants?

The All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows most patients to get their remaining teeth removed, dental implants inserted, and a beautiful, fixed, functional smile delivered over the course of a single day! This technique has the ability to not only give patients a beautiful smile, but also give them a fresh outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, old or failing dental work, or broken teeth. For them, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the ideal solution to have a new smile and correct the dental problems of the past.

 

  • Best aesthetics/looks | Looks and feels the most like your natural smile.
  • Permanent | Can’t move in and out of your mouth like a denture.
  • No long healing times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing capability of all full mouth/full arch tooth replacement choices.
  • Requires the least amount of bone | Great for people who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

This procedure includes removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often added at specific angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also eliminates the need for expensive bone grafts with long healing times.

The classical All-On-4 procedure incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on experience and knowledge to provide an improved outcome for our patients. At Indiana Dentures and Implants, we carefully review every single case and base our treatment on the individual patient’s anatomy. Your doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be added while your implants integrate with the jawbones and your mouth heals. Once your healing is finished, 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 practices. Zirconia also gives a more realistic, life-like finished product and is more sanitary and resistant to staining. This means they will look better and last longer than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at competing dental implant practices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most patients will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. The doctor will use a blend of straight and angled implants to avoid the sinuses and use the strongest bone. Utilizing this method usually removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

The doctor will perform a detailed evaluation during your free consultation to see if All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is an option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat with my new teeth the same day?

Yes! However, although your dental implants and teeth are securely in place from day one, we kindly ask that you keep up a soft diet throughout the 4 month healing period. So what do we mean? A general rule of thumb is that you can eat anything you can cut with the side of a plastic fork. We ask this because you are investing in something that could last you decades, possibly the rest of your life, and maintaining a soft food diet initially will allow the best union your implants into the bone and help establish a fantastic outcome long-term.

How long has the All-on-4 procedure been around?

This transformative 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 individuals all the while being improved upon to what you see today.

How do I take care of my new teeth?

Caring for your teeth is simple, but staying consistent is the key. Similar to how we are supposed to routinely brush and floss natural teeth, you need do the same with the new implants and teeth. Only few minutes a day is all it will take to keep your implants and mouth healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning under 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 escalate the possibility of implant complications, so we do not recommend smoking with dental implants. Diabetics should also be made aware of a heightened risk for problems with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is very important for the long-term success of your dental implants.

Other than that, regularly follow through with your doctor consistently throughout the year for quick evaluations of your new implant teeth.

What do the new implant teeth feel like?

The new dental implants will bring a new sensation and will take a few days or sometimes several weeks to get used to.

Is there a lot of pain with this procedure?

Although you can expect moderate pain, it is similar to the pain common with standard teeth extractions. We use a combination of medications to help control pain and keep our patients as comfortable as we can.

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

While experiences will vary, most patients should expect some discomfort and slight swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the following day for their follow-up appointment reporting very little soreness. All patients are prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you’re a good candidate for it, your doctor will offer a steroid injection which will: help reduce discomfort and swelling for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like with this procedure?

This will vary from patient to patient, but, generally speaking, the recovery time is faster and easier with All-on-4 implants than other complete teeth restoration options. This is mostly due to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via your implants. Conventional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time the dentures are able to move and lead to sore spots. Generally, pain should subside mostly within one to two, with full healing typically after 6 months.

What is the difference between your practice vs. a general dental practice that has a wide scope of dental services?

Our practice is limited to dental prosthetics and implants. Dental implants, and particularly "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is continually working to ensure our patients receive the best possible results. Many practices will refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have inconsistent pricing. They will take several months or even years to finish the procedure while charging you up to double our price. Our dental surgeon performs the procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an on-site prosthetics lab and expert lab technician, along with transparent and affordable pricing. By having all these services under one roof, we are able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

What is the difference between your practice and corporate dental implant centers?

At Indiana Dentures and Implants, we have the same advantages of the national dental implant practices by focusing our practice on dental implants and prosthetics. We have an on-site dental lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. However, our office is privately owned, and every single patient will be seen by our doctor. Our team focuses on the satisfaction of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. At corporate implant practices, there is no guarantee that you'll be treated by the same doctor that has the great reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and the team will do everything to make sure you are happy with your new teeth and take care of you like family.

How does this compare to snap in dentures or mini dental implants?

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 implant solution. These have a very high complication and failure rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, can be a good option for some people. We also provide this service and have a separate page dedicated to snap-in dentures if you want to learn more. They can be a more budget-friendly alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How often should I get my new teeth professionally cleaned?

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

Can dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails within the first year, your doctor will replace it for free.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is perfectly normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as foreign material and is working to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should subside within a few days.

Can I be put under for my procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer oral conscious sedation. The medicine will provide relaxation 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 local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for this procedure, due to the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

Are All-On-4 bridges always attached to the dental implants the day of the procedure?

In most cases these will be attached straightaway. In certain cases, mostly depending on your bone quality and volume, we will be unable to attach your bridge(s) during your procedure and you will need to wear an interim healing denture while your new implants bond to your bone. Your doctor will review this thoroughly during your evaluation.

How long will I bleed after surgery?

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

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

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

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

Again, this will take some time, but with a little practice and patience, your mouth and tongue will adjust quickly. "S’s" will be the most difficult to pronounce. Practicing words like "sixty-six" and "sarcastic" can help you get used to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may have a small lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

You should expect to wait six weeks after the procedure before beginning to clean your water flosser.

Am I too young for the dental implants?

No, this is not just a procedure for the elderly. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be extremely beneficial to your overall health, and having the ability to laugh, converse, and smile confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your psychological health.

What should I have ready ahead of my procedure?

  • Ice packs
  • Wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my final teeth be made from?

The final bridge is made from zirconia. Zirconia is a much stronger and more stain resistant material than traditional acrylic All-On-4 teeth which many providers offer. If you choose a competing provider, make sure you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do decide on acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with a different office, expect to have staining around the teeth and to replace them every 5-10 years. Also, be certain you know the total price you are going to pay for the procedure, temporary teeth, and final new teeth. Other offices will charge you a surgery/temporary fee only for you to discover owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for the final product.

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

The total cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost is $39,000. These prices include removing any remaining teeth, placing your implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and the fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Other offices may charge an operation fee, temporary teeth fee, and then surprise you at the end with another fee for your new teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will not surprise you with any additional fees.

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

The unique thing about this procedure, and what allows us to attach to your implants from day one, is that all of the implants will be rigidly splinted together by the new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the dental implants that can lead to failure early on. Basically, your implants and bridge support one another.

Your dental implants are made of titanium, the same material used in artificial knee and hip joints, so your jawbone will naturally grow around and attach to them over time.

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

The majority of patients that have been advised they are not candidates for dental implants are actually wonderful candidates for the All-On-4 procedure. The combination of using angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense lets us complete this procedure for many patients that thought this was not an option. Our team can usually perform the procedure without needing expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or years. Please come see us for a complimentary consultation to see if you're a candidate.

Will the extractions, implants, and new teeth really be completed in the same day?

Yes! This is our preferred way of doing this procedure with the best outcome. With the advanced implants and materials available today, there is typically no reason for you to wait months or even years to complete the process like patients experienced in the past.

Is your doctor a specialist such as a prosthodontist, periodontist, or oral sugeon?

No, the doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice to prosthetics and dental implantology. Dental implantology is their passion, and they have placed more 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 specific situation.

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

By performing a high number of these procedures and limiting our practice exclusively very specific procedures, we have advantages that other practices do not have. Our office has in-house lab and lab technician and a single dentist who performs the entire procedure. These efficiencies allows us to offer advanced dental implant procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing. Not only do we have the best prices, we also use only the finest implants and zirconia teeth.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. We offer a variety of 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.

Does your practice provide warranties or guarantees?

If a dental implant fails to integrate we will replace it at no cost. We warranty the final dental bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, patients must return every 6 months for maintenance and hygiene of their bridges/implants. This 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 will the All-on-4 procedure take?

Usually the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes about 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 top and bottom teeth, we usually finish closer to 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for your teeth to be made in our lab and trying them in to be certain your smile is exactly how you want it. 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 possible to ensure you love your new smile. The teeth you get the same day of surgery are only a temporary/transitional set. When we fabricate your final teeth, you will have full control of the design and appearance of them.

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

While this can be a good fit for many patients, if there are complications or broken teeth, it is very difficult to fix if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local dentists will not be willing to repair another practice's work. A major advantage of having a transitional set of fixed teeth on the day of your surgery is that you get to test them out and learn what you like and 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 exciting to get your final teeth immediately, it does come with some significant drawbacks which cannot be overlooked.

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

No, they are firmly attached to your implants, which are firmly anchored to your jaw. If your All-On-4 teeth begin moving for any reason, call our office so we can schedule an exam.

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

The procedure is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported functional prosthetic temporary teeth the same day. As there are often significant changes in your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a temporary set of teeth. This helps ensure the best long-term outcome with your final teeth.

Can the temporary teeth get damaged?

Yes, your temporary teeth are made from acrylic and can crack, chip, and occasionally break. This is very common. The good thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can be easily repaired. If you have any issues with the temporary, just call our office and we’ll get you fixed up right away.

Can the final teeth get damaged?

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

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

Unfortunately, no. As your existing implants will not be the proper position that this procedure requires, and as bone reduction will need to be performed, we cannot use your existing implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Are my All-On-4 bridges removable?

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

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

Yes, any dental prosthetic can 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 routine.

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

Of all the complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required to recover. Generally 4-7 days is sufficient. With that said, as there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to get used 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 on whether you are having 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 the new implants. You will wear your temporary bridge(s) for 4 months to allow time for the dental implants to fuse with the bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a stable, long-term position before we create your permanent teeth. Allowing this healing time ensures the best possible fit for your permanent bridge(s). After this healing time, we will begin producing your 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.

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.
