Teeth-In-A-Day & All-On-4® Dental Implants
All-On-4® Dental Implants
What are All-On-4® dental implants?
All-On-4® dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution for patients who are missing the majority of or all of their lower teeth. All-On-4® dental implants use 4 anchor screws to securely hold dental implants. Traditional dental implants use 1 screw for each dental implant, so in cases where a patient is missing 5 teeth, 5 individual screws will have to be placed to hold each dental implant. All-On-4® dental implants are less invasive dental implants that can replace all the teeth of your lower jaw in just one simple dental implant procedure.
What are the benefits of All-On-4® dental implants?
After receiving All-On-4® dental implants, your teeth will be strong and healthy. These dental implants can be treated just like a normal tooth, meaning you can enjoy almost any type of food. All-On-4® dental implants require no special creams, upkeep, or care, as traditional dentures or bridges do. Your teeth can be brushed and cleaned just as your normal teeth would be after receiving All-On-4® dental implants. Because All-On-4® implants only require the use of 4 anchor screws, the dental implant procedure is less invasive and recovery time is shorter. Additionally, All-On-4® dental implants can be quickly and effectively placed in one short visit to our NYC dental implant office.

When are All-On-4® dental implants recommended?
All-On-4® implants are generally recommended for patients who have lost most or all of their lower teeth. If a patient has lost the majority of his or her lower teeth, Dr. Classi can remove any loose or unhealthy teeth and place All-On-4® dental implants. All-On-4® dental implants are also recommended for patients with dentures, as All-On-4® dental implants are a permanent missing tooth solution that will not cause jawbone loss, unlike traditional dentures. All-On-4® dental implants are used to replace missing teeth of your lower jaw. If you are missing most or all of your upper teeth or teeth in general, All-On-6 implants or a combination of All-On-6 and All-On-4® dental implants may be right for you.
What can I expect during an All-On-4® dental implant procedure?
With virtual surgery planning, Dr. Classi is able to plan the majority of your All-On-4® dental implant surgery prior to your visit. Virtual planning allows Dr. Classi to better understand your individual case and reduce the possibility of unforeseen complications. With the use of medical imaging, Dr. Classi is able to assess your jaw health. If needed, a bone graft may be suggested before receiving All-On-4® dental implants. A surgical guide will be made for your All-On-4® dental implant surgery that will be used to properly place your dental implants.
During All-On-4® dental implant surgery, any loose or unhealthy teeth of your lower jaw will be extracted. 4 anchor screws will then be placed at preplanned locations along your gum line. If you experience posterior bone loss, specially angled dental implants can be placed to create a fuller smile. Occasionally, a small bone graft may be needed for the best results. After your All-On-4® dental implants have been securely placed, you will receive temporary crowns that you will wear while you undergo the process of osseointegration. This process is when your living jawbone bonds and adheres to your dental implant, creating a secure root-like structure that is a stable base for your dental crown. After a few months, your jawbone and dental implants should successfully bond together. You will then return to our office, and Dr. Classi will place permanent crowns on your dental implants for a complete smile restoration. In some cases when a patient is missing all of his or her teeth, teeth in a day may be recommended. With teeth in a day, temporary dental crowns can be placed for immediate smile restoration.
Does Dr. Classi offer revisional All-On-4® dental implant surgery?
Dr. Classi offers revisional All-On-4® dental implant surgery if you have received dental implants that cause you pain, do not work effectively, or that are failing. All-On-4® dental implants can restore your full smile so that you enjoy all of your favorite foods again.
