Princeton Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery combines expert treatment, technology, and personalized care. All of this results in innovative offers like “Teeth in a Day,” which utilizes the All-on-4 implant treatment concept. Get all the details to know if you are a candidate for such a procedure and how Dr. Levine operates.
The procedure is a unique, and generally minimally invasive treatment for those who currently have dentures or are missing multiple teeth. Sometimes the most difficult part of replacing a tooth is replicating the root structure, which is what the small, titanium screw (implant) will do. A crown is then placed over the implant, making for a strikingly realistic and functioning tooth. For patients already without teeth or soon to be without teeth, the All-on-4, or Teeth in a Day, rehabilitation uses four implants to secure a full-arch restoration to the upper or lower part of the mouth. With four on the top and four on the bottom, Teeth in a Day can fully restore a healthy and happy smile.
The All-on-4 procedure works because two of the four implants are tilted so that longer implants can be used. This can eliminate bone grafting that might have been necessary with other treatments. After the implants are put into place, a fixed provisional bridge is fitted and attached for efficient and immediate use. Because the bone actually fuses to the implants, this helps keep the jawbone strong. Anyone that has lived with broken or painful teeth knows that jaw stability is important.
Because of the efficient surgical approach, patients can use their new teeth right away. They can enjoy chewing tough food without pain or awkwardness. For those who have struggled with their dentures, they will appreciate the lack of discomfort and the increased stability that dentures can never provide. Many patients also don’t realize the confidence that returns with a beautiful smile. A fully restored mouth lets patients speak clearly and articulately. Both short and long term gains amaze those who choose Teeth in a Day.
It’s all in the name. The Teeth in a Day, or All-on-4, approach gives our patients a new lease on a full working mouth. Even people who have been refused dental implants in previous years may be able to take advantage of this procedure, including those suffering from bone loss, periodontal disease, and non-functioning teeth. The combined methods save time and money, as well as affording peace of mind that everything done at Princeton Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has quality of care in the forefront. Missing teeth and everyday issues with chewing, speaking, and mouth comfort are constant with many Americans. It no longer has to be.
