Questions about Teeth in a Day / All on 4 Implants

Miami and Coral Gables, Florida

Who are the best candidates?

The ideal candidates for the Teeth in a Day, (All on Four or All on Six) procedure are those who are about to lose their teeth and those who are current denture wearers.

Many times I’ve been told that I’m not a candidate for a fixed bridge or implant due to bone loss. Am I a candidate for an implant with the All on Four procedure?

80% of the patients who have been told they are not candidates for traditional implant options are candidates for this procedure. This procedure uses the frontal part of the jaw and in most cases it requires no bone grafting or sinus augmentation.

What makes this procedure different?

Considering the fact that the frontal part of the jaw has the more dense bone, instead of the conventional method of placing the implant straight into the bone (which can require sinus lift and bone grafting) and minimum 6 to 9 months waiting time to heal, this technique differentiates by placing the back implants at an angle. Not only do you benefit from the dense bone in the frontal part of the jaw, but we can place a longer implant with a much less invasive procedure, without entering into the sinus cavity on the upper arch.

How long is the surgery?

The surgery takes 2 ½ hours per arch under sedation (sleep dentistry) and you will get a fixed set of teeth in one day.

Is there going to be pain?

Since the procedure is much less invasive and the patient is placed on anti-inflammatory medication prior to the surgery there is little to no discomfort and swelling.

How much does this procedure cost?

Every patient is different depending on bone quantity and density, but on average, this procedure costs half the price of conventional methods, without any waiting period and benefiting a fixed bridge in one day.

Who will do the implants?

Dr. Raul Garcia and Dr. Conchi Sanchez-Garcia work closely with Dr. William Lamas one of Miami’s finest periodontist to place the implants. To find out more about Dr. Lamas please visit their website at www.miamiperio.com
