Frequently Asked Questions

What are All-On-4 Implants?

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

 

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

How All-On-4 Dental Implants Work

The technique includes removing all remaining teeth, adding 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 avoids the need for expensive bone grafts with extended healing times.

The standard All-On-4 technique incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on experience and knowledge to offer an improved result for our patients. At Cincinnati Dentures and Implants, we carefully review every single case and base the treatment on each individual patient’s anatomy. Our doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be used while your implants integrate with the jawbones and your mouth heals. Once the healing is finished, the doctor and lab technician will design your permanent teeth with zirconia, which is much more stable than the conventional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at competing dental implant offices. Zirconia also provides a more realistic, life-like finished product and is more hygienic and resistant to staining. This means they will look better and last longer than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges common at competing dental implant offices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most people will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. The doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid your sinuses and use the strongest bone. Using this method typically removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

Your doctor will perform a thorough assessment 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 from day one?

Yes! However, although your implants and new teeth are firmly in place immediately, we do request that you maintain a soft foods diet throughout the 4 month healing timeframe. What exactly do we mean? A simple guide is you can eat anything which you can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing into a treatment that can last you several decades, even the rest of your life, and keeping to this soft diet initially will allow for the best union your implants into your bone and help ensure the best long-term outcome.

For how long has the All-on-4 procedure been available?

This life-changing solution was pioneered by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since then, this procedure has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of patients all the while being improved upon to the method we use today.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Caring for your new teeth is simple, however staying consistent is the key. Similar to how we are meant to routinely brush and floss natural teeth, you need do the same with your All-On-4 implants and teeth. Just a few minutes daily is all it will take to keep your mouth and implants healthy. 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 it takes.

Smoking can escalate the possibility of implant complications, so we recommend not using tobacco products 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 very important for the long-term success of your new implants.

Other than that, simply follow through with your doctor consistently during the year for quick evaluations of your new dental implants.

What will my new implant bridges feel like?

Your new dental implants will be a new sensation and will take a few days or sometimes a few weeks to become accustomed to.

Will there be a lot of pain with this procedure?

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

Is there pain after the procedure?

While your experience may vary some, most patients should expect some soreness and some swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the following day for their post op appointment reporting very little discomfort. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort. Also, if you’re a good candidate for it, your doctor will provide a steroid shot which will: help alleviate swelling and discomfort for the first days of recovery.

What is the recovery time like for dental implants?

Experiences will vary from patient to patient, but, most often, the recovery period is shorter and easier with this procedure compared to other full arch or full mouth replacement options. This is mainly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws via the implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time they are able to move and cause sore spots. The pain should decline for the most part within 1-2 weeks, with complete healing typically after 6 months.

What is the difference between your practice vs. another local office offering a wide scope of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and specifically "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and our team is continually working to ensure our patients get the best results possible. Many practices will often refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have inconsistent pricing. They often take several months or even years to complete the procedure all the while charging you 50-100% more. Our doctor will perform your procedure from surgery to final teeth. We provide an on-site prosthetics lab and experienced lab technician, to provide affordable and transparent pricing. By having all this at one location, our practice is able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

What is the difference between your practice and national implant practices?

Cincinnati 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 on-site dental lab, very competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. The advantage is, we are privately owned, and every single patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. We focus on the satisfaction of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. With national implant centers, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same dentist 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 we can to be certain you are overjoyed with your smile and treat you like family.

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

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

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, are a great option for some people. We also provide this option and have a separate page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. This option may be a more budget-friendly alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How frequently should I have my dental implants professionally cleaned?

Plan to (visit us every six months to have your teeth examined and cleaned. Doing this will help ensure the longevity of your new implants and teeth.

Can implants fail?

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

  • Failure to bond to the bone

 

 

Tobacco use

 

 

Diabetes

 

 

If your implant fails during the first year, our doctor will replace it at no charge to you.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva 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. This increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put to sleep for the procedure?

Our office does not currently put patients to sleep, we do, however, offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. To learn more about your options click here. The medication will help to relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember your procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver both ways for your procedure, because of 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 implants the day of the procedure?

In most cases these will be attached straightaway. In certain situations, mainly depending on your bone quality and quantity, we would not be able to install your dental bridge(s) during your procedure and you'll need to wear an interim healing denture while your implants bond to the bone. Our doctor will review this in-depth during your evaluation.

How long will I bleed after surgery?

Substantial bleeding will stop before you leave our office, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after your procedure. In addition, you will most likely see increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this increased 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 prosthetic teeth immediately?

Just as you would need practice to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg, it will need some practice and patience to become accustomed with your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since they are firmly attached to your jaw, All-On-4 dental implants will be the easiest to get used to of all the full-arch implant options.

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

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

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

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

Am I too young for the dental implants?

No, this is not just a procedure for senior citizens. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s to need to replace their teeth. Replacing bad teeth can be extremely beneficial to your long-term health, and having the ability to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your emotional health.

What items should I have ready ahead of the procedure?

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

What will my final teeth be made from?

We make the final bridge out of zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than traditional acrylic All-On-4 implants that many dentists use. 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, you can expect to see staining surrounding your teeth and to have them replaced every 5-10 years. Also, be certain you understand the total price you're going to pay for the operation, temporaries, and final new teeth. Other practices may charge you a base fee only for you to find you owe an additional five to fifteen thousand dollars for your new teeth.

How much does the All-On-4 procedure cost?

The entire cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower 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 your fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Many practices will charge an operation fee, temporary fee, and then surprise you at the end with yet another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is fully transparent, and we will never surprise you with any additional fees.

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

The unique thing about this procedure, and what lets us 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). Splinting them together prevents the micro-movement of the implants that can lead to early failure. Essentially, your implants and dental bridge all support each other.

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

What if a different dentist has said that I am not a candidate for this or don't have enough bone for dental implants?

Many patients who have been told they aren't candidates for dental implants are actually good candidates for our All-On-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedure. A combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw where the bone is more dense allows us to complete this procedure for many patients who thought implants were not an option. Our team can usually perform this procedure without needing expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or years. Please come see us for a free implant exam to see if you are a candidate.

Can the extractions, implants, and new teeth really be completed in just one day?

Yes! This is our preferred method of performing this procedure with the best final result. With the leading dental implants and materials that we have available today, there is usually 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 dental implantology and prosthetics. 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 their patients get the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

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

By performing a high number of these procedures and limiting our practice exclusively dental implants, we have advantages that other practices simply do not. We have our in-house lab and lab technician and a single dentist who performs the procedure start to finish. Because of these efficiencies, we are able to offer these 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.

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 offer 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, our patients must return every 6 months for hygiene and maintenance of their bridges and implants. The 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 this 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 start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are usually finished by lunch time. If we are replacing both upper and lower teeth, we usually finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Most of this time is waiting for the teeth to be made in our lab and trying them in to be certain 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 love your new smile. The teeth you get the same day of the procedure are only a temporary/transitional set. When we fabricate your final teeth, you will have complete control of the design and appearance of your teeth.

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

While this is a good fit for some patients, if there are complications or teeth breaking, it can be 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 practice's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your surgery is you get to test them out and learn 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 the way you want them to look. While it can be exciting to get your final teeth immediately, it can come with some serious drawbacks that cannot be overlooked.

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

No, these are firmly attached to your implants, which are rigidly anchored in your jaw. If your new teeth begin moving for any reason, call our office so we can schedule an exam.

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

The procedure is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you are receiving a set of implant-supported working prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. Since there can often significant changes in your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a transitional set of teeth. This ensures the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can my temporary teeth be damaged?

Yes, your temporary teeth are made from acrylic and can chip, crack, and occasionally break. This can be very common. The great 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 it repaired right away.

Can my permanent teeth get damaged?

While it is possible for nano-ceramic and zirconia to be damaged, it’s very uncommon. Zirconia and nano-ceramic are among the strongest and most durable materials available in the dental world.

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

Unfortunately, not. As your current implants will not be the proper position that this procedure requires, and as bone reduction will need to be performed, we cannot use your current 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 implants.

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

Yes, any prosthetic in the mouth 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 surgery?

Of all the complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required before returning to work. Typically 4-7 days is sufficient. With that said, since there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you will need to get used to eating and speaking with your new teeth, the more time 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 getting a single arch completed (upper or lower) or both arches (full mouth). When you leave our office, your 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 the dental implants to integrate with your bone and for the jaws and gums to heal into a strong, long-term position before we create your final teeth. Allowing this healing time ensures the closest possible fit for your final teeth. After this recovery time, we will begin producing the final bridge(s). This involves a few 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.
