Frequently Asked Questions

What are All-On-4 Implants?

The All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows most patients to have their remaining teeth removed, implants placed, and a beautiful, fixed, functional smile delivered over the course of a single day! This procedure has the ability to not only give patients a beautiful smile, but also give them a fresh outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, failing or old dental work, and broken teeth. For these patients, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” is the perfect solution to obtain a new smile and fix the dental problems that have plagued them for years.

 

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

How it Works

This procedure involves removing any remaining teeth, placing 4-6 implants per arch, and attaching a low-profile bridge to those implants. The implants are often placed at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also avoids the need for expensive bone grafts with long healing times.

The traditional All-On-4 procedure involves four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has modified this procedure based on his experience and knowledge to provide an even better result for his patients! At Boise Dentures and Implants, we carefully analyze 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 placed while your implants integrate with your jawbones and your mouth heals. After your healing is complete, the doctor and lab technician will design your final teeth with zirconia, which is much stronger than the traditional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at most other dental offices. Zirconia also gives a more natural, life-like end result and is more hygienic and resistant to staining. This means they will last longer and look better than the acrylic/titanium hybrid bridges you find at most other practices.

Am I a Candidate?

Most patients will be a candidate for this procedure, even those who have been told they don’t have enough bone for dental implants. Your doctor will use a combination of straight and angled implants to avoid the sinuses and engage the strongest bone. Using this technique usually removes the need for expensive and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to eat with my new teeth from day one?

Yes! However, although your implants and teeth are firmly placed immediately, we kindly ask that you keep up a softer diet during the four month healing timeframe. What exactly do we mean? A general rule of thumb is you can eat any food which you can cut with the side of a plastic fork. We ask this because you are investing in something which could last you several decades, possibly the rest of your life, and keeping to a soft food 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 around?

This transformative solution was developed by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since that time, it has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of patients and has been improved upon to what we use today.

How do I care for my All-On-4 teeth?

Caring for your implants is very easy, but staying consistent is key. Just like how we are meant to regularly brush and floss natural teeth, you need do this with the All-On-4 implants and teeth. Only few minutes a day is all it will take to keep your mouth and implants healthy. Brushing your bridges with a soft 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 will take.

Cigarette smoking can increase the possibility of implant complications, so we do not recommend smoking with your dental implants. Patients with diabetes should also be aware of an increased risk for 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 up with your doctor consistently during the year for quick examinations of your new implant teeth.

What will my new implant teeth feel like?

Your new implant bridges will bring a new sensation and will take several days or sometimes a few weeks to get used to.

Can I expect a lot of pain involved in the procedure?

Although there will be moderate pain, it is similar to the pain of typical dental extractions. Our team uses a combination of medications to help control the pain and keep our patients as comfortable as we can.

Is there pain after the procedure?

Though your experience may vary some, you can expect mild soreness and possible swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the following day for their post op examination reporting very little pain. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you are a good candidate for it, your doctor will provide a steroid shot which will: help with pain and swelling for the first few days.

What is the recovery time like for this procedure?

This will vary from person to person, but, most often, the recovery time is faster and easier with this procedure than other complete teeth replacement options. This is mostly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to the bone by your implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require adjustment periods during which time the dentures can shift and lead to sore spots. Generally, pain should subside mostly within 1-2 weeks, with full healing usually after six months.

What is the difference between Boise Dentures and Implants and a traditional local office that has a wide range of dental services?

Our practice is limited 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 offices will refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have inconsistent pricing. They will take several months or even years to finish your procedure all the while charging you up to double our price. Your doctor performs your procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an in-house dental lab and expert lab technician, to provide transparent and affordable pricing. By offering all these services at one location, our office is able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

What is the difference between Boise Dentures and Implants and national dental implant practices?

At Boise Dentures and Implants, we have the same advantages of the corporate dental implant offices by focusing our practice on dental prosthetics and implants. Our office has an in-house lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. The advantage is, our office is privately owned, and each patient will be seen exclusively by our doctor. We focus on the happiness of our patients instead of monthly quotas, cost cutting, and shareholders. With corporate dental implant centers, there is no guarantee that you will be seen by the same provider that has the great reviews or whom your friend recommended you to see. Our doctor oversees your procedure from beginning to end and the team will do everything we can to make sure you are thrilled with your new teeth and treat you like family.

What about 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 with caution at any office recommending mini dental implants as a permanent implant solution. They have a very high complication and failure rate.

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

How often should I get my dental implants cleaned professionally?

You should (visit us every 6 months to have your implants checked and cleaned. This will help ensure the longevity of your new implants and teeth.

Can implants fail?

Although titanium implants do have a 95+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things which may contribute to failure:

  • Failure to bond to the bone
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

If an 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 an implant placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as a foreign object and is working to “flush” it out. This increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put to sleep for my procedure?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, we do, however, offer both IV and oral conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. The medicine will help 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 someone driving you 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 dental implants the day of the procedure?

In most cases these will be attached straightaway. In certain situations, mainly dependent on your bone quality and quantity, we would be unable to install your dental bridge(s) the same day and you will need to wear a temporary healing denture while your new implants fuse to the bone. Our doctor will go over this thoroughly during your exam.

How long can I expect to bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will have stopped before you leave the clinic, however, you can expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after your procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely have 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 like you will need practice to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to get used to your prosthetic teeth. With that being said, since they are rigidly attached to your jaw, All-On-4 teeth will be the easiest to get used to of all our full-arch implant options.

Will I know how to speak with my prosthetic teeth right away?

Again, this will take some time, but with a little patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing words like "sarcastic" and "stupendous" will help you get used to your prosthetic teeth. In some cases, patients may have a small lisp long-term with All-On-4 upper teeth.

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

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

Am I too young for this procedure?

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

What should I have ready for after the procedure?

  • Ice packs

  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing out

  • Comfortable clothes you wouldn't mind throwing away

  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my new teeth be made of?

The final bridge is made from zirconia. Zirconia is a much stronger and more stain resistant material than traditional acrylic All-On-4 teeth that other dentists use. If you select a competing provider, be certain you know what kind of material they will be using. If you do decide on acrylic prosthetic teeth with a titanium bar at another office, you can expect to see staining surrounding the teeth and to replace them every 5-10 years. Also, be certain you know how much you are going to pay for the operation, temporaries, and final prosthetics. Many offices will charge you a base fee only for you to find out you owe an extra five to fifteen thousand dollars for your new teeth.

How much does the All-On-4, "Teeth in a Day" procedure cost?

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

How can I get permanent teeth in just one day? I thought the implants needed to heal?

The unique thing about this procedure, and what lets us attach to your metal implants immediately, is that all of your implants will be rigidly splinted together by your new teeth (the implant bridge). Splinting them together prevents the micro-movement of the dental implants that can lead to early failure. Basically, your implants and dental bridge support one another.

Your dental implants are made from titanium, the same metal used in replacement knee and hip joints, so your bone will naturally grow around and attach to them over time.

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

The majority of patients who have been told they aren't candidates for other dental implants are actually good candidates for our "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 perform this procedure for many patients that thought it was not an option. We can usually perform the procedure without the need for expensive grafting which delays treatment by months or even years. Please come see us for a free consultation to see if you're a candidate.

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

Yes! This is our preferred method of doing this procedure to support an ideal final result. With the advanced implants and materials that we have available today, there is typically no reason to have to wait months or even years to go through the process like patients experienced in the past.

Is your doctor a specialist such as a prosthodontist, periodontist, or oral sugeon?

No, our doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice to dental implantology and prosthetics. Dental implantology is their passion, and they have more experience placing dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In limited select cases, the doctor will collaborate with other dental specialists to ensure that their patients receive the best possible treatment for their situation.

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

Because of the high number of these procedures we perform and limiting our practice exclusively these procedures, we have advantages that other practices simply do not. Our office has in-house lab and lab technician and a single dentist that performs the entire procedure. These efficiencies allows us 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 the best quality dental implants and materials.

Are there payment plans available?

Yes. We offer multiple payment plans 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 guarantees or warranties?

If a dental implant fails to integrate we will replace it at no cost. We warranty the final bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, our patients must return to the office every 6 months for maintenance and hygiene of their bridges and implants. This warranty does not apply to patients who 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?

Typically the surgery is about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes another 2 hours. If we begin in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are often done around lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we typically finish closer to 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 ensure your smile is exactly how you want it. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth it in the end!

What if I don’t like my new teeth?

We do everything possible to ensure you're thrilled with your new teeth. The teeth you get the day of surgery are only a temporary/transitional set. When our lab fabricates your final teeth, you will have full control of the design and appearance of your smile.

What about out of town offices 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 deal with 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 transitional set of fixed teeth on the day of your surgery 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 offer try-ins to ensure that your teeth look exactly like you want them to look. While it can be great to get your final teeth immediately, doing this does come with some significant downsides that cannot be overlooked.

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

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

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

It is referred to as "teeth in a day" because you will receive a set of implant-supported functional prosthetic temporary teeth in one day. As there can often significant changes to your mouth during the healing and implant integration phase, it is best to start with a transitional set of teeth. This helps ensure the best long-term outcome with your permanent teeth.

Can the temporary teeth get damaged?

Yes, the temporary teeth are made of acrylic and can crack, chip, and sometimes break. This can be very common. The best thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can easily be repaired. If you have any issues with the temporary, just give us a call and we’ll get you fixed up right away.

Can my final teeth be damaged?

While it is possible for zirconia and nano-ceramic to be damaged, it’s very rare. These materials 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. Since your existing implants will not be the correct position that this procedure requires, and since bone reduction will be necessary, we cannot use your current implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

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 part of your long-term hygiene regimen.

How much time should I take off work for recovery after my procedure?

Of all complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 tends to have the shortest time required before returning to work. Typically 4-7 days is sufficient. With that said, since there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to become accustomed 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 typically takes 4-6 hours depending on whether you are having a single arch treated (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 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 bridge(s). Allowing this healing time ensures the closest possible fit for your final bridges. After this healing time, we will begin fabricating your final bridge(s). This involves a few appointments over a 5-6 week period, during which time you’ll help us 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.
