Teeth in a Day
Our Boston oral surgery team is highly skilled in “Teeth in a Day” – a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing or will require removal of all of their upper and/or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only four to six implants as “anchors” for the full restoration in just one day. This technique is made possible by the All on Four concept and offers many advantages over traditional dentures.
Dental implant placement can help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss. A major advantage of All on Four technology is that it allows avoidance of expensive and time consuming bone grafting procedures that delay the process.
With implant supported full arch restoration, there is no plate covering the roof of the mouth, so speaking and eating are more natural and comfortable than with a traditional denture. Easy to care for, this type of restoration can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors for new teeth. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures.
“All on four” restorations can often be placed in one office visit, reducing both overall cost and healing time. Dr. Lucca’s talented team of lab technicians can be present on site during the procedure to provide a full set of teeth on the same day as the implant surgery.
Our Boston oral surgeons are happy to provide consultation utilizing our state of the art technology and to discuss in detail all on four and teeth in a day implant solutions.
