All-On-4, also known as Teeth-in-a-Day, or Immediate Load Dental Implants, is the newest innovation in implant dentistry technology. In most dental implant cases, patients must have multiple office visits and wait months before surgery.
With All-On-4 implants, patients can walk in and out of our Concord or Lexington, MA, office with a complete set of teeth!
Traditional Dental Implants vs. All-On-4 in Concord & Lexington, MA
Traditional implants must be left undisturbed for 4-6 months before healing, and growth allows the tooth to be replaced. This waiting period allows osseointegration to take place between the tooth and implant. The result is a strong, stable implant.
However, traditional implants require multiple surgeries (one to place the implant and one to uncover the implant from under the gumline after six months). Patients may be forced to wear a bridge or denture during the waiting period or, worse, without a tooth.
While traditional dental implants have a high success rate, the waiting period makes this treatment option difficult, especially in the case of an emergency.
Immediate Load Implants, or teeth-in-a-day, have no waiting period, and missing teeth can be placed immediately! As soon as the implant surgery has been completed, the doctor can place a restoration piece without the required 6-month waiting period. You can leave your appointment with a new tooth that will function normally the same day! Plus, the procedure usually takes only an hour.
Immediate load implants can also be placed immediately after an extraction. Imagine walking in and out with all of your teeth!
Do I Qualify for Immediate Load Dental Implants?
Not all patients will qualify for immediate load implants. Your doctor must perform the procedure only on patients who fulfill the necessary criteria to ensure maximum success. Your doctor will thoroughly examine you to determine if you qualify for immediate-load dental implants.
The TeethXpress dental implant procedure can help patients with no teeth regain their smile in just a few hours. This technique is designed to use only four dental implants that can immediately be attached to a set of dentures. This enables you to walk out of the office with a brand-new smile. With this procedure, you reduce the number of visits to the dentist.
First, you will come in for a consultation to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure and to take the required scans needed to plan the placement of the dental implants.
If you are a candidate, we’ll schedule a time for you to come in for your second appointment. Four dental implants are placed during this appointment, and a temporary denture is attached. Once the bone has fully healed around the implants, the temporary teeth are removed, and the final teeth are attached.
