Teeth in a Day - "All on Four" Fixed Hybrid
Beautiful, Fixed-In New Teeth in One Day with All-On-4®
Dr. Carroll can give you implant-supported full-arch replacement teeth that are stably fixed-in, provide near full chewing power, look totally natural and won’t slip or irritate your gums. The procedure is known as “All-on-4®,” as only four implants are needed to support an entire arch of fixed-in new teeth.
All-on-4 is a highly advanced procedure which allows patients with even severe bone loss in their jaw to receive fixed-in new teeth without the need for bone grafting. It is also designed so you can have any necessary extractions done and receive your implants and new replacement teeth all on the same day!
Development of the All-on-4 procedure
The All-on-4 treatment protocol was developed in the 1990s by Nobel Biocare, a world leader in innovative dental implant solutions, in conjunction with Portuguese dentist Dr. Paolo Malo. Nobel and Dr. Malo were dedicated to finding a system that could effectively provide implant-supported, full-arch replacement teeth to patients who had lost a lot of bone in their jaw, and to be able to do so without having to rely on bone grafting.
They developed a special tapered implant that had top-to-bottom threads that would optimally integrate with the jawbone. They then found that placing the rear implants at a slanted angle would take the best advantage of the available bone in the jaw and eliminate the need for bone grafting in most patients.
Advantages of All-on-4
Dr. Carroll can help you restore your smile to full health and visual aesthetics with the All-on-4 procedure.
All-on-4 has many advantages which make it a superior option for fixed-in new teeth:
• All-on-4 is the most economical full-arch, fixed-in teeth replacement option
• Nearly everyone is a candidate for All-on-4 treatment regardless of bone loss
• The entire procedure is completed in one day, including any extractions, implant placement and mounting of new teeth
• No bone grafting is needed
• Your new fixed-in teeth have 80 percent of natural biting and chewing power
• The chewing pressure on your implants keeps your jawbone stimulated and prevents bone loss and eventual “collapse” of the lower part of your face
• Your new teeth are easy and inexpensive to maintain
• All-on-4 has a proven, over 90 percent success rate after 10 years
Candidates for All-on-4
All-on-4 is not just for people who have broken-down teeth that need to be extracted and replaced. People who have already lost all their teeth and are already wearing dentures can benefit equally from the procedure.
An Easy, One-Day Procedure
We use the latest in dental imaging technology for accurate diagnosis and detailed treatment planning.
In traditional implant treatment, patients who need bone grafting have to wait three months without functional teeth for bone to regrow. The implants are then placed and they have to wait several more months for the implants to heal before they can have usable new teeth. This makes the tooth replacement procedure extremely long and very expensive.
Conventional methods are also a lot more taxing on the patient. They require several sessions, which means more time in the surgical chair and multiple recovery periods. With All-on-4, the patient has only one surgery visit which includes the placement of all implants and the receipt of new, functional teeth.
Your Comfort is Our Priority
We have intravenous conscious (IV) sedation and general anesthesia available on all All-on-4® dental implant cases. Our dental implant procedures start with a comprehensive dental consultation. At the consultation, you will be examined by Dr. Sam Carroll who has the experience of performing dental implant surgery (implant placement) for over a decade. He is looking forward to meeting with you.
Dr. Carroll is passionate and generous about helping patients getting their smile back. Along with his extensive training in oral implantology, Dr. Carroll possesses a unique eye for smile design helping patients look younger.
A Simpler Path to a New You
When you’re on this path, you’ll be working with the same team of dental implant professionals throughout the entire process. First, you’ll receive a 3D CAT scan and consultation with the team to determine the best course of treatment. You’ll also get one fixed price that covers the entire procedure. When you return to our dental office, the surgery will be done in one day—and you’ll walk away with fully functioning teeth. At your follow-up appointment, you’ll again meet with the same team.
Out-of-State Travelers for Full Mouth Implants Reconstruction
If you are an out-of-state traveler flying over to our dental practice in Yuma, AZ for our All-on-4® implant treatment concept consultation, we suggest to first contact our dental office at (928) 344-1060. We may suggest for you to send over a CT scan and/or a panoramic radiograph for Dr. Carroll to review it before your arrival.
Since we have a significant number of people from out of state interested in having the All-On-4® treatment, we ask you to please be patient and keep in mind every case is different. It takes time and planning to come up with a detailed All-on-4® treatment plan and be able to provide a full mouth restoration with implants.
We not only offer the convenience of having an All-on-®4 treatment in one office, but our patients save anywhere from $6,000 to $8,000+ per arch by having the All-on-4® treatment in our office.
