Frequently Asked Questions

What are All-On-4 Implants?

The All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows most patients to get any remaining teeth removed, dental implants inserted, and a beautiful, permanent, functional smile delivered in only a single day! The All-On-4 procedure has the ability not only to give patients a stunning smile, but also provide a renewed outlook on life. We see countless patients suffering with extensive decay, old or failing dental work, or fractured teeth. For them, All-On-4, “Teeth in a Day” can be the best solution to obtain a new smile and fix the dental problems of the past.

 

  • Best looks/aesthetics | Looks and feels the most like your natural smile.
  • Permanent | Doesn’t come in and out of your mouth like a denture.
  • No extended recovery times before you can use your dental implants.
  • Does not cover the roof of the mouth!
  • Best chewing ability of all full arch/full mouth tooth replacement options.
  • Requires the smallest amount of bone | Great for those who have been told they don’t have enough bone for implants.
  • Taste your food better!

How Same Day Dental Implants Work

This procedure involves removing all remaining teeth, adding 4-6 implants per arch, and affixing a low-profile bridge to the implants. The implants are typically placed at special angles to avoid the patient’s sinuses. This also avoids the necessity for expensive bone grafts with long healing times.

The traditional All-On-4 treatment incorporates four implants and acrylic denture teeth over a titanium frame. Our doctor has improved this procedure based on knowledge and experience to provide an improved result for our patients. At Omaha Dentures and Implants, we meticulously examine each and every case and base the treatment on each individual patient’s anatomy. Your doctor will place between four and six implants per arch and temporary fixed bridges will be placed while the implants fuse 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 conventional acrylic (plastic) denture teeth offered at most other dental implant practices. Zirconia also offers a more realistic, 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 competing dental implant practices.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Most people will be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. The doctor will use a blend of angled and straight implants to avoid the sinuses and use the strongest bone. Applying this technique usually eliminates the need for costly and lengthy sinus augmentation bone grafts.

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

All-On-4 Cost

Pricing includes all extractions, as many implants as are needed, fixed temporary teeth, and fixed final teeth.

This pricing is the best in Omaha and also provides the best end result. We are able to achieve this by having an extensively trained dentist who does the full procedure from beginning to end along with an experienced in-house dental lab technician. Our team has performed this procedure from start to finish together more times than they can count.

For your final teeth, you, your dentist, and the in-house lab technician will design your perfect smile together. While other practices still use acrylic denture teeth over titanium bars, we use zirconia which offers the best in durability, appearance, and resistance to staining. Upgrading to zirconia often costs much more at other locations. At Omaha Dentures and Implants, they’re our standard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to eat with my new teeth the same day?

Yes! However, even though your dental implants and new teeth are firmly in place the day of your surgery, we kindly request that you stick to a softer diet throughout the four month healing timeframe. What exactly does that mean? A simple guide is that you can eat anything you can cut with a plastic fork. We ask this because you're investing in something that can last you many decades, possibly the rest of your life, and maintaining a soft food diet during the healing period will allow for the best integration of your implants into the bone and help ensure the best long-term outcome.

For how long has the All-on-4 procedure been available?

This transformative procedure was created by Portuguese dentist Paolo Malo in the 1990s. Since that time, it has been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of individuals all the while being improved upon to what we use today.

How do I take care of my new teeth?

Maintaining your teeth is easy, however consistency is the key. Similar to how we’re meant to routinely floss and brush natural teeth, you should do this with your All-On-4 teeth and implants. Only few minutes daily is all you will need to keep your dental implants healthy. Regularly brushing your bridges with a soft tooth brush and cleaning beneath them with a water flosser (WaterPik is a well-known and popular brand) a few times a day is all it will take.

Smoking can escalate the risk of implant problems, so we do not recommend smoking with dental implants. Diabetics should also be made aware of an increased risk for complications with dental implants. Keeping diabetes under control is paramount for the long-term success of your dental implants.

Besides that, simply follow through with your doctor consistently during the year for quick evaluations of your new All-on-4 implants.

What do the new implant bridges feel like?

Your new implant teeth will be a new sensation which will take a few days or sometimes several weeks to become accustomed to.

Can I expect excessive pain with this procedure?

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

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

Though experiences will vary, most patients can expect some soreness and slight swelling after your procedure. Many patients come in the next day for their follow-up examination reporting minimal soreness. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Also, if you are a candidate for it, your doctor will give you a steroid injection which will: help alleviate swelling and pain for the first days of recovery.

What recovery time can I expect for this procedure?

Experiences will vary from person to person, but, generally speaking, the recovery time is faster and easier with All-on-4 implants than other complete teeth replacement options. This is mainly thanks to the bridges being attached directly to your jaws by your implants. Traditional dentures and implant dentures both require healing periods during which time the dentures can move and lead to sore spots. Generally, pain should decline for the most part within one to two, with complete healing usually after 6 months.

What is the difference between your practice and another local office offering a wide scope of dental services?

We limit our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. Dental implants, and especially "teeth-in-a-day," are our passion, and we are continually working to ensure our patients receive the best possible results. Many dental practices will refer you to multiple providers, use outside labs, and have inconsistent pricing. They will take several months or even years to complete your procedure all the while charging you 50-100% more. Our dental surgeon will perform the complete procedure from surgery to final teeth. We have an on-site prosthetics lab and certified lab technician, to provide affordable and transparent pricing. By having all these services at one location, our practice is able to deliver a premium service at an affordable price.

What is the difference between Omaha Dentures and Implants and national implant offices?

At Omaha Dentures and Implants, we have the same advantages of the corporate dental implant centers by limiting our practice to dental implants and prosthetics. We have an in-house lab, competitive pricing, and offer teeth the same day. However, we are privately owned, and every single patient will be seen by our doctor. We focus on the gratification of our patients instead of cost cutting, shareholders, and monthly quotas. With corporate implant centers, there is no guarantee that you will be treated by the same doctor that has the great online reviews or whom you were recommended to see. Our doctor oversees your complete procedure and our team will do everything to make sure you are thrilled with your new smile and treat you like family.

What about mini dental implants? Or snap in dentures?

Mini dental implants are not related to the All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day " procedure. Please proceed with caution at any office that recommends mini dental implants as a permanent restoration solution. They have a very high failure and complication rate.

Snap-in implant dentures, on the other hand, can be a good option for some people. Our office also provides this option and have a separate page dedicated to these if you would like to learn more. They may be a more economical alternative to All-On-4 "teeth-in-a-day" dental implants.

How frequently should I get my dental implants cleaned professionally?

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

Can dental implants fail?

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

  • Failure to integrate into the bone
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes

If your implant fails within the first year, your dentist will replace it at no cost to you.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is perfectly normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as foreign material and is trying to “flush” it out. This increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. Click here to learn more about your options. The medicine will provide relaxation and typically makes it so you don’t remember your procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have a driver both ways for this 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 same day as the procedure?

Most cases will be attached immediately. In certain situations, mainly dependent on your bone quality and quantity, we will be unable to attach your dental bridge(s) during your procedure and you'll need to wear a temporary healing denture while your implants fuse to the bone. Our doctor will review this thoroughly during your evaluation.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after your procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely notice increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this extra saliva mixes with a little 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 new teeth right away?

Just like you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will need some patience and practice to become accustomed with your prosthetic teeth. All that being said, since they are firmly anchored 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 talk with my new teeth right away?

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

How long after the procedure do I need to wait to use a water flosser or Waterpik?

You should wait 6 weeks after the procedure before you begin cleaning with a water flosser.

Am I too young for this procedure?

No, this is not only for senior citizens. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, even 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be very beneficial to your overall physical health, and being able to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your psychological health.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • Ice packs
  • Wash cloths you wouldn't mind throwing away
  • Comfortable clothes you wouldn't mind throwing away
  • Soft foods (see list above)

What will my new teeth be made from?

We make the final bridge from zirconia. Zirconia is much stronger and more resistant to staining and wear than conventional acrylic All-On-4 teeth that other offices provide. If you choose a competing office, make sure you know what kind of teeth you will be getting. If you do get acrylic denture teeth with a titanium bar with another office, you can expect to see staining around the teeth and to have them replaced every five to ten years. Also, make sure you understand how much you are going to pay for the operation, temporary teeth, and final new teeth. Some offices may charge you a surgery/temporary fee only for you to find you owe an extra $5,000-$15,000 for the final product.

How much can I expect to pay for the "Teeth in a Day" procedure?

The full cost for a single arch (upper or lower) is $19,900. For both upper and lower arches, the total cost will be $39,000. Both prices include removing any remaining teeth, placing your implants, same day fixed temporary teeth, and the fixed permanent zirconia teeth. Many providers will charge a surgery fee, temporary fee, and then surprise you afterward with another fee for your final teeth. Our pricing is entirely transparent, and we will never surprise you with any extra fees.

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

What is unique about this procedure, and what lets us attach to your implants from day one, is that all of your implants will be rigidly held in place by the new teeth (the implant bridge). This process prevents the micro-movement of the dental implants that can lead to early failure. Basically, your implants and bridge all support each other.

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

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

Many patients who have been told they aren't candidates for other dental implants are actually wonderful candidates for the All-On-4 "Teeth in a Day" procedure. The combination of utilizing angled implants and using the front of the jaw bone where the bone is more dense allows us to complete this procedure for many patients that thought implants were not an option. We can usually perform the procedure without the need for expensive grafting that delays treatment by months or even years. Please visit us for a free dental exam to learn if you are a candidate.

Will the extractions, implants, and new teeth really be completed in only one day?

Yes! This is our preferred method of performing this procedure with the best final result. With the leading dental implants and materials 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 the doctor a specialist such as a peridontist, oral surgeon, or prosthodontist?

No, the doctor is a general dentist that limits their practice exclusively to prosthetics and dental implantology. This area of expertise is their passion, and they have more experience placing dental implants than most specialists and other general dentists. In very select cases, they will collaborate with another dental specialist to ensure that their patients get the best possible treatment for their specific situation.

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

Because of the high number of these procedures we perform and limiting our practice to dental implants, we have advantages that other practices simply do not. We have our in-house lab and lab technician along with a single dentist that performs the procedure start to finish. Because of these efficiencies, we are able 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 zirconia teeth.

Are payment plans available?

Yes. Our practice offers a variety of 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 to you. We warranty the final dental bridge for 5 years. To keep this warranty, patients must return every 6 months for hygiene and maintenance of their bridges/implants. This warranty does not apply to patients that continue to use nicotine products or have uncontrolled diabetes or develop other uncontrolled systemic conditions which compromise their implants.

How long does the All-on-4 procedure take?

Usually the surgery is about 1 hour per arch. Then, the lab portion of making the teeth takes another 2 hours. If we start in the morning, for a single upper or lower arch, patients are usually finished around lunch time. If we are replacing both top and bottom teeth, we usually finish around 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. Much of this time is waiting for your teeth to be created in our lab and trying them in to ensure your smile is just right. It is a long day, but will definitely be worth it in the end!

What if I'm not happy with my new teeth?

We do everything in our power to ensure you love your new smile. The teeth you receive the day of surgery are only a temporary/transitional set. When our lab fabricates your final teeth, you will have complete control of the design and appearance of your smile.

What about some of these out of town offices in Florida, Las Vegas, etc. offering same day final teeth?

While this can be a good service for many patients, if there are complications or broken teeth, it is very difficult to deal with if you traveled thousands of miles away or out of the country. Most local practices will not be willing to repair another practice's work. A major advantage of having a temporary set of fixed teeth on the day of your procedure 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 provide try-ins to ensure that your teeth look exactly the way you want them to look. While it can be great to get your final teeth immediately, doing this does come with several significant downsides that cannot be ignored.

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

No, they are firmly attached to your dental 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 the surgery?

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

Can the temporary teeth get damaged?

Yes, your temporary teeth are made of acrylic and can crack, chip, and sometimes break. This can be quite common. The great thing about the acrylic temporary is that it can be easily repaired. If you have any issues with your 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 most durable and strongest materials available in the dental world.

I already have an implant (or implants), can they be used for All-On-4?

Unfortunately, not. As your existing implants will not be the correct position required by this procedure, and as bone reduction will be necessary, we cannot use your existing implants and they will most likely need to be removed.

Can I remove my All-On-4 teeth?

No, you cannot remove the prosthetics yourself. Only the dentist is able to remove them. They are secured to your implants.

Can food get under my All-On-4 bridge(s)?

Yes, any dental prosthetic can get some amount of food under it. You can rinse with water to get food out from under your bridge(s), and cleaning daily with a water flosser will be included in your long-term hygiene routine.

How long should I take off work to recover after my procedure?

Of all complete teeth replacement options, All-On-4 often has the shortest time required to recover. Generally 4-7 days is sufficient. That being said, since there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to get used to speaking and eating with your new teeth, the more time you can take off, the better.

All-On-4 Procedure

Timeline

The actual procedure usually takes 4-6 hours depending on whether you are getting 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 the new implants. You will wear the temporary bridge(s) for 4 months which provides time for your implants to integrate with the bone and for your jaws and gums to heal into a strong, long-term position before we create your permanent bridge(s). Allowing this healing time ensures the closest possible fit for your final teeth. After this recovery time, we will begin fabricating the 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 final teeth.

1

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.
