All-on-4™ – Teeth In A Day
Our experienced Houston cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jeffrey L. Schultz, now offers the innovative All-on-4™ – Teeth In A Day procedure. All-on-4™ is an advanced implant system designed to permanently replace all teeth in an upper and/or lower arch, utilizing only four strategically placed implants instead of multiple implants that are traditionally used. This advanced procedure requires less office visits, saving both time and money, ultimately, resulting in permanent and non-removable restorations that can typically be created in just one visit. All-on-4™ dental implants are also generally much more comfortable than traditional removable dentures. You can now quickly enjoy a lifetime of restored teeth functionality and the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
How It Works
The All-on-4™ dental implant procedure at Schultz Center for Dentistry is a new system to replace missing teeth with a streamlined treatment process. In fact, the procedure usually takes only one day to complete.
The process for All-on-4™ dental implant treatment involves:
- 3D scan of your mouth captured to analyze the bite, fit, shape, size, and color of your teeth to customize the best, most natural-looking restorations
- Four dental implants strategically placed inside the gums using titanium posts anchored to the jaw and a custom-made bar designed to fit your mouth very precisely
- All-on-4™ implants immediately connected to your jaw via the anchors, eventually will fuse to the bone, making them a natural part of your mouth
- Custom-made set of new teeth affixed to the implants
Your new set of teeth should feel permanent and natural following the implant placement procedure. Your teeth will be sensitive immediately following treatment; however, this should only be temporary, and you should be able to resume full normal eating and chewing functionality about six weeks after the procedure. For optimal results, Dr. Schultz recommends patients return to their dentist to have their new teeth cleaned at least once or twice per year.
