What exactly are full-arch Implants or the All-on-4 procedure?
“All on 4” and “Teeth in a Day” are terms used to describe a procedure that allows patients to receive replacement teeth in just one day. You may hear of other versions of this procedure such as “Teeth in an Hour,“ “Dental Implants in One Day,“ “Teeth In One Day,“ “Teeth In One Visit.” While they go by many names, all refer to a one-day implant treatment, which restores a full arch of replacement teeth.
The All-on-4 treatment concept utilizes four dental implants to attach your new set of permanent replacement teeth in a minimally invasive way. The dental implants used in this procedure are specially designed for immediate function and typically do not require bone grafting. This treatment is attractive for those patients with dentures or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations. If you are about to lose your teeth or have many missing teeth, the All-on-4 procedure can help you achieve a beautiful smile and teeth in just one day.
Unlike other approaches that involve more laborious and costly techniques often requiring bone grafting, sinus lifts, and eight or more implants per arch, which can take up to 3 years to complete treatment, Dr. Wehrle uses this proven technique that involves only using four specially placed implants without the need for bone grafts and sinus lifts. Your new dentures can be completed in just one day.
The end result is a solid base of teeth that are fixed in place and are not removed. It means lower costs and reduced healing times allowing our patients to regain their original youthful smile and original function faster, more reliably. The All-on-4 technique is FDA approved and has a long history of success.
What is the process for getting “All on 4” and “Teeth in a Day” Implants?
Four appliances are placed into the jawbone and gums and left to heal sufficiently before the implant bridge can be secured in place. Once implanted, the bridge will never need to be removed and will resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.
As with all Dental Implants, All-on-4 Dental Implants are placed during an outpatient surgical procedure in Dr. Wehrle’s office. Most patients will want to take advantage of some sort of sedation for this procedure, in addition to the local anesthetic that will be used.
Before leaving Dr. Wehrle’s office, you are fitted with the prosthetic arch – a fixed complete denture. After the implants have fully integrated with the bone, you may return to receive a second, stronger denture.
What are the Benefits of the All-on-4 Procedure?
In addition to the short treatment time frame, All-on-4 Dental Implants have a number of advantages over conventional dentures:

- No more ill-fitting dentures

Who is a good candidate for full-arch Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. We can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants.
