What if you could repair your whole collection of teeth in just one day? Many dental implant patients are required to move from office to office for different appointments, making what should be a straightforward procedure into a lengthy ordeal. This can be particularly inconvenient for those who come from rural areas and depend on metropolitan cities for their dental implant needs. For dental implant patients who need a fixed denture, All-on-4 dental implants have a one-day surgery solution.
All-on-4 is a dental implant option that allows for the placement of a fixed denture using only four dental implants. The implants are mounted in such a way that they do not need the usual healing time associated with other forms of dental implants. As a result, when done in an office with sufficient manpower and equipment, the All-on-4 surgery operation can be completed in one day, making the trip for out-of-town patients more feasible.

The All-on-4 procedure is broken down into several steps. The surgery can be completed in one day for qualifying applicants, but it can also be completed in two appointments.
• Consultation – The first visit, during which particular needs are identified and a solution is proposed.
• 3D CAT Scanning and Cone Beam Scanner – The surgery is prepared using cutting-edge technology.
• Impressions – This is where the correct moulds for the dental implants are produced so that the patient’s teeth can be made.
• Education – Education advisors provide guidance and information to each patient to ensure proper post-surgery treatment and maintenance.
• Surgery – The implants are inserted and fresh teeth are added to the dental implants on the day of surgery.
A adequately staffed facility would be able to complete any of these steps on-site, reducing the number of trips required by the out-of-town patient. A fully staffed dental implant centre will be able to take a patient from start to finish of the operation in one day, thanks to on-site education experts, a dental surgeon, and an implant dentist.
The All-on-4 is open to clients who have shown to be qualified applicants after the initial consultation. Patients that need bone grafting or another surgical procedure before implants can be inserted would not be eligible for the procedure.
The patient’s candidacy for the All-on-4 dental implant treatment will be determined during the initial consultation with the dental implant office.
