All-on-4 Dental Implants Santa Clara

Full Mouth Tooth Replacement Santa Clara

Replacement teeth have indeed grown in popularity, and dental implants have changed the field. Replacement teeth that act and look like natural teeth are implanted. Standard implant procedures, nevertheless, are troublesome or in some cases unwise.

What Are All-on-4, Same Day Teeth, and Teeth In A Day?

The terms All-on-4, Same Day Teeth, and Teeth in a Day refer to a procedure that can offer patients replacement teeth, as the names would imply, in one day. Some of these treatments go by different names, such as “teeth in one hour,” “dental implants in one day,” or “teeth in one lunch.” They all refer to the exact same thing: one-day implant treatment to replace a full arch of teeth.


A complete set of teeth is replaced with the All-on-4 treatment. Using four dental implants, a permanent prosthesis is produced by anchoring a temporary bridge, or overdenture, to four implants. In addition to providing a long-term, permanent option to dentures, All-on-4 implants can likewise replace harmed or missing teeth.

All-on-4 VS Dentures

In the very same way that patients brush their natural teeth every day, they also brush their All-on-4 implants. All-on-4 implants do not require patients to extract them when dining or cleaning their teeth, nor are there any unpleasant wires or brackets to hold them in place. Last but not least, All-on-4 implants look similar to your natural teeth.

The Process of Getting All-on-4

The procedure normally takes two, and a half, hours per arch. Our Pros can place implants on the upper, lower, or both arches at the same time. There are four actions to getting All-on-4 implants:


  1. As a first step, the Pros will examine your records, existing conditions, your dentures, any facial structure requirements, and anything else that could affect the placement of your implants.
  2. Second action: Typically, a CT scan of the jawbone is taken, which is a 3D picture. Besides identifying where the replacement teeth will be installed, the scans provide your Pro with information on the bone sinuses and nerves that will be affected by the implant.
  3. Third step: Create a digital representation of the implants so that they can be suited the jawbone at the proper place to offer you the very best support possible. Your new set of teeth can be customized according to your requirements and the implants can be adjusted as required.
  4. The last and fourth action is the dental surgery. After you are anesthetized, your Pro will implant your new set of teeth directly into your jawbone.

In order to protect the implant bridge in place, 4 implants are placed into the jawbone and gums, which should heal for an amount of time. A prosthetic arch is fitted to the patient before you leave the Pros’ office.


The patient may return for a second, more powerful denture once the implants have completely incorporated with the bone. It is not required to remove the bridge once implanted, and it will resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.


After All-on-4 implants have been placed, the patient must use good sense to identify what can, and can not, be done to avoid complications with the implants. For a few weeks, keep a soft diet and be gentle with your oral hygiene regimen (however still keep it up in order to decrease the existence of possibly transmittable bacteria).


All-on-4 Dental Implants offer numerous benefits over standard dentures, including a shorter treatment time frame. Compared with conventional dentures, which do not have root-like structures to anchor the bone, All-on-4 implants are more safe and stable, consequently lowering jawbone resorption. Having an implant-supported arch implies that it will not slip out of place, and it is more reliable at chewing, which allows patients to preserve a diverse diet.

What Are Full Mouth (All-on-6) Implants Santa Clara?

Traditionally, full dental implants are the most typical form of implant treatment. Your implant is covered as soon as the surgery has been completed. A few months are allowed to pass before the gums are re-opened, and the implant is exposed. It is a well-proven and trustworthy surgical procedure. 


The issue is when it comes to replacing a whole mouth full of teeth. The traditional way would be almost akin to torture if the same treatment was applied. Instead, a whole new procedure was developed to cut the time, and pain, down to a fraction of the time.

Why Choose Full Mouth Dental Implants?

When it comes to complete tooth loss, full mouth implants are perfect. If a person loses teeth on one, or both arches,  full mouth restorations provide the highest level of stability. If you were utilizing your natural teeth. 


Just about any food you take pleasure in can be consumed normally, it will feel like you are biting down using your real teeth. 


Your jawbone is implanted with full mouth implants throughout. These implants maintain the structure of your new teeth. This helps protect the roots of your natural teeth and avoids bone loss.

Who Is Suitable for Full Dental Implants?

For a full set of new teeth to be supported, your jaw bone need to be strong enough. A significant amount of jawbone is more than likely lost by individuals who lost their teeth many years ago, have active periodontal disease, or have had periodontal disease in the past.


The bone around natural teeth can be damaged by sophisticated periodontal disease. Tooth loss can be attributed to periodontal disease.


It is possible to undergo this treatment even if you are missing teeth. A bone graft might be required to restore bone level, however. Bone levels are crucial to optimum tooth placement.


Prosthetic thickness is one concern that really needs to be talked about. A substantial amount of bone loss might cause an excessively thick prosthesis. The outcome might not feel rather natural. It might be challenging for full mouth implant users to acknowledge extreme biting forces. The absence of sensation might make this difficult. If the patient bites hard on them, extreme tension could result in full mouth dental implants stopping working.


A bruxism is when an individual bites and clenches their teeth during sleep. Dental implants can be damaged by biting hard. Single dental implants might likewise be an alternative.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Benefits of all-on-6 dental implants include:

  • Dentures and removable prosthetics can be eliminated with treatment.
  • When your teeth feel stable and strong, you will take pleasure in the sensation. The teeth are a permanent part of the mouth.
  • If your smile looks and feels natural, you may feel more fearless and confident.
  • Similar to natural teeth, full mouth implants offer a comparable biting strength. Any food will taste excellent with them.
  • A full mouth of dental implants keeps your jawbone from degrading even more.
  • With your prosthesis, you’ll have excellent cheek and lip support. Denture wearers will no longer experience a “collapsed-face” appearance.
  • A high success rate is associated with the treatment.

Downsides of full mouth dental implants consist of:

  • Once the integration has occurred with the bone, the implants can not move or be pressured. Failure might result.
  • Treatment costs could be increased if bone grafting is needed.


Dental implants for the full mouth have a high success rate. Each patient is assessed for viability prior to surgery.
