What are Same Day Implants?

The “Teeth in a Day,” All-On-4 procedure allows most patients to get their remaining teeth removed, implants placed, and a gorgeous, fixed, functional smile delivered in a single day! The All-On-4 procedure has the ability to not only provide patients with a stunning smile, but also give them a renewed outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, or fractured teeth. For them, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” can be the best solution to have a new smile and fix the dental problems that have burdened them for years.

 

  • Best looks/aesthetics | Looks and feels the most like natural teeth.
  • Non-removable | Doesn’t move in and out of your mouth like a denture.
  • No lengthy recovery times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full mouth/full arch tooth replacement options.
  • Requires the least amount of bone | Wonderful for people who have been told they don’t have enough bone to get dental implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

The procedure includes removing all remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and affixing a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are typically placed at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also removes the need for expensive bone grafts with long recovery times.

The standard All-On-4 procedure incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on knowledge and experience to offer an even better result for our patients. At Morgantown Dentures and Implants, we meticulously examine each and every 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 fuse with your jawbones and your mouth heals. After the 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 provides a more realistic, life-like end result and is more sanitary and resistant to discoloration. This means they will last longer and look better than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at competing dental implant practices.

Am I a Candidate?

Most people will be a candidate for this procedure. Our doctor will use a blend of angled and straight implants to avoid your sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Utilizing this method usually eliminates the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

This pricing is the best in Morgantown and also provides the best final result.

They have performed this procedure from beginning to end together more times than they can count.

For the final teeth, you, the dentist, and our in-house lab technician will work together to design your perfect smile.

Upgrading to zirconia often costs much more at competing locations. At Morgantown 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, although your dental implants and new teeth are securely placed from day one, we do ask that you stick to a softer diet during the four month healing period. So what do we mean? A general rule of thumb is that you can eat any food you can cut with a plastic fork. The reason for this is that you're investing in a treatment which can last for many decades, perhaps even the rest of your life, and maintaining this soft diet initially will allow for the best integration of your implants into your bone and help provide a great long-term outcome.

For how long has this procedure been available?

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

How do I take care of my new teeth?

Taking care of your teeth is very easy, however staying consistent is key. Similar to how we’re supposed to regularly brush and floss natural teeth, you should do the same with the new teeth and implants. Only few minutes daily is all it will take to keep your dental implants healthy. Regularly brushing your bridges with a soft bristle 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 that's required.

Smoking can escalate the possibility of implant problems, so we recommend not smoking with your dental implants. Patients with diabetes should also be aware of a heightened possibility of complications with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is paramount for the long-term success of your new implants.

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

What do the new implant teeth feel like?

Your new implant bridges will be a new sensation and will take a few days or sometimes several weeks to adjust to.

Is there a lot of pain with the procedure?

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

Is there pain after this procedure?

While experiences will vary, most patients should expect some discomfort and possible swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up exam reporting very little pain. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you are a candidate for it, the doctor will provide a steroid injection which will: help reduce discomfort and swelling for the first days of recovery.

What recovery time can I expect with All-on-4 dental implants?

This will vary from person to person, but, overall, the recovery period is shorter and easier with this procedure compared to other full arch or full mouth restoration options. This is mainly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to the bone by your implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time the dentures are able to move and cause sore spots. Generally, pain should decline mostly within 1-2 weeks, with complete healing usually after six months.

What is the difference between Morgantown Dentures and Implants vs. a general local practice that has a wide range of dental services?

Our practice is limited to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and particularly "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and we are regularly working to ensure our patients receive the best results possible. Other dental practices will often refer you to other providers, use outside labs, and have confusing pricing. They will take many months or even years to complete the procedure while charging you up to double our price. Our dental surgeon will perform your procedure from surgery to final teeth. We provide an in-house prosthetics lab and experienced lab technician, to provide transparent and affordable pricing. By providing all these services at one location, our team is able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

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

Morgantown Dentures and Implants has the same advantages of the corporate dental implant offices by focusing our practice on dental implants and prosthetics. We have an in-house dental lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. The advantage is, we are privately owned, and each and every 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 corporate dental implant centers, there is no guarantee that you will be seen by the same provider who has the great online reviews or whom your friend recommended you to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and our team will do everything we can to make sure you are overjoyed with your new teeth and treat you like family.

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

Mini dental implants are not related to our All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day " procedure. Please proceed with caution at any office recommending mini dental implants as a permanent solution. This method has a very high failure and complication rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, can be a great 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. These may be a more budget-friendly alternative to the All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implant procedure.

How frequently should I get my new teeth cleaned professionally?

You should (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 dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

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

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva is perfectly normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as foreign material and is working to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for my procedure?

We do not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do offer both IV and oral conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about the options. This medication will help to relax you 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 pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for your procedure, because of 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 dependent on the quality of your bone and volume, we would not be able to install your bridge(s) the same day and you'll need to wear a temporary healing denture while your implants fuse to the bone. Our doctor will review this thoroughly at your examination.

How long can I expect to bleed after the procedure?

Substantial bleeding will stop before you leave our office, however, you can expect to have slight bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. Additionally, you will most likely notice increased salivation when we first place your temporary teeth. When this increased saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If you experience heavy bleeding, please call our office.

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

Just like you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to get used to your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since these are rigidly anchored to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get used to 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 patience and practice, your mouth and tongue will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like “Mississippi” and “sixty-six” will help you get accustomed to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a slight lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

Patients should wait 6 weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with your water flosser.

Am I too young for the dental implants?

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

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • Ice packs

  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing out

     

  • Comfortable clothes you wouldn't mind throwing out

     

  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my new teeth be made from?

We make the final bridge out of zirconia. Zirconia is a much stronger and more stain resistant material than conventional acrylic All-On-4 implants that other dentists use. If you choose a competing office, be certain you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do decide on acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with a different office, you can expect to see staining around the teeth and to replace them every 5-10 years. Also, make sure you understand the total price you are going to pay for the operation, temporaries, and final new teeth. Many practices may charge you a base fee only for you to find you owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for the final product.

How much can I expect to pay for the "Teeth in a Day" procedure?

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

How can I get new teeth in one day? I thought dental implants had to heal?

What is unique about this procedure, and what allows us to attach new teeth your metal implants from day one, is that all of your implants will be rigidly held in place 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 dental bridge support one another.

Your dental implants are made of titanium, the same metal used in artificial knee and hip joints, so your bone will naturally grow around and bond with them over time.

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

The majority of patients who have been told they are not candidates for dental implants are actually great candidates for the "Teeth in a Day" procedure. The combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense allows us to perform the procedure for many patients that thought implants were not an option for them. Our team can usually perform the procedure without needing expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a complimentary dental exam to see if you are a candidate.

Will the extractions, implants, and fixed teeth really be completed in only one day?

Yes! This is our preferred way of performing this procedure to support an ideal outcome. With the leading implants and materials available today, there is usually no reason to have to wait months or even years to go through the process like you had to do in the past.

Is the doctor a specialist such as an oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist?

No, the doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice exclusively to prosthetics and dental implantology. This area of expertise is their passion, and they have placed more dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In very select cases, they will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that our patients get the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

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

By performing a high number of these procedures and limiting our practice exclusively these procedures, we have advantages that other offices do not have. We have our in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist who performs the entire procedure. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer All-on-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedures for our patients at the most competitive pricing available. Not only do we have the lowest prices, we also use only the finest dental implants and materials.

Are there 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.

Does your practice provide warranties or guarantees?

If a dental implant fails to integrate we will replace it at no cost. Our office warranties the final dental bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, patients must return every 6 months for maintenance and hygiene of their implants and bridges. This warranty does not apply to patients that continue to use nicotine products or have uncontrolled diabetes or develop other uncontrolled systemic conditions which compromise their implants.

How long does the procedure take?

Usually the surgery takes about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making your teeth takes another 2 hours. If we begin in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often done by 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 your teeth to be made 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 don’t like my new teeth?

We do everything in our power to ensure you're thrilled with your new teeth. 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 complete control of the design and appearance of them.

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

While this is a good fit for many patients, in the rare case of complications or broken teeth, it is very difficult to repair if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local dentists will not be willing to repair another dentist's work. A major advantage of having a transitional set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure 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 do try-ins to ensure that your teeth look exactly like you want them to look. While it can be exciting to get your final teeth immediately, doing this does come with several serious drawbacks that cannot be overlooked.

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

No, they are rigidly attached to your implants, which are rigidly anchored in your jaw. If your new teeth begin moving for any reason, call us so we can schedule an evaluation.

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

It 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 can often significant changes in your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to begin with a temporary set of teeth. This ensures the best long-term outcome with your final teeth.

Can the temporary teeth be damaged?

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

Can the permanent teeth get damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to get damaged, it’s extremely rare. Zirconia and nano-ceramic 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, not. As your existing implants will not be the correct position required by this procedure, and since bone reduction will be necessary, we cannot use your existing 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 dental prosthetic will get some amount of food under it. You can rinse with water to get food out from under your bridge(s), and cleaning every day with a water flosser will be part of your long-term hygiene routine.

How much time should I take off work to recover 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, as there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you’ll need to become accustomed to eating and speaking with your new teeth, the longer you can take off, the better.

“Teeth-in-a-Day” Procedure 

Timeline

The procedure itself usually takes between four and six hours depending on whether you are getting 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 your new implants. You will wear your temporary bridge(s) for 4 months to allow time for your implants to integrate with your bone and for your jaws and gums to heal into a stable, long-term position before we fabricate your final teeth. Allowing this recovery time ensures the closest possible fit for the permanent teeth. After this recovery time, we will begin fabricating the final bridge(s). This involves multiple appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help our team design the smile you want for your permanent teeth.

Mouth Impressions

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. This is a mock up of what your temporary implant bridge and will be used to check bite position, aesthetics, etc.
