What Is Teeth In One Day?
The term “Teeth In One Day” refers to our ‘ALL-ON-4’ treatment where we replace all of the upper and/or lower teeth in just ONE DAY.
All of the upper or lower replacement teeth are supported ON FOUR dental implants. It is a modern technique where the back implants are tilted 45º to provide the required support for total rehabilitation.
The tilting of the back of implants helps overcome bone deficiencies often found in the front of the jaw which qualifies most patients for treatment who would otherwise not qualify for implant surgery due to low bone density.
Our Teeth In One Day Process
Meet the Doctor for a dental exam and imaging to determine your eligibility and plan your best outcome.
Our dental lab builds your ideal smile based on your preference for teeth color, size, shade, material and bite.
Same day surgery. You'll wake up from the procedure with your brand new smile and "healing" set of teeth all within ONE Day!
After a short time to heal, you'll return to the office to replace your "healing" teeth with your final set of permanents.
How Teeth In One Day Works
With the Teeth In One Day treatment you are never without teeth. You show up the day of your procedure with your missing or failing teeth. You’re sedated, you receive treatment, and you wake up a few hours later with a brand new smile.
Included with your Teeth In One Day procedure, are two sets of teeth: your healing set and your permanent set.
After your implants are placed, you will be fitted and sent home with your healing set of teeth. These are what you’ll have while your body is healing from surgery and the implants properly fuse with your jawbone.
Your Healing Teeth
Your healing teeth are nearly indistinguishable from your permanent set, but they are made to accommodate a soft food diet and are designed to break if you bite or chew on something hard enough to damage your implants. This is a safety feature much like a car is designed to crumple to protect its passengers.
Your Permanent Teeth
After your implants have successfully integrated with your jawbone, the doctor will schedule you for placement of your permanent teeth. This is a painless procedure that typically takes 30 minutes to place.
Your permanent teeth are customized for your ideal color, shape, length and bite. They are impervious to cavities, won’t stain, and do not require flossing. And with proper care, will typically outlast your lifetime.
Benefits of Teeth In One Day
The Teeth In One Day procedure requires just 4 implants to replace a full set of top and/or bottom teeth in just one day. And since less implants are used in comparison to older methods, we can achieve better, more predictable results and do it at a much lower cost.
Patients who would otherwise not qualify for dental implant treatment because of low jawbone density can now be good candidates for treatment and most often avoid the additional time and expense of bone grafting.

Why Consider Teeth In One Day?
Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, erodes your confidence, and affects your ability to speak clearly, and chew properly. While these are all serious issues, one of the most devastating is bone loss?
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and become brittle. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
Thanks to dental implants and our Teeth In One Day procedure, we can correct all of these issues which include maintaining your jawbone density and facial appearance.

Our doctors do everything they can to make you as comfortable as possible. Depending on the procedure, you can elect to have local anesthesia or sedation. Many of our patients opt for sedation so they don’t feel anything during the procedure. Afterward, most of our patients reported that they experienced far less pain than anticipated.
Dental sedation varies depending on the patient and their medical history. We will go over all your options when you come in for your free consultation.
No. After the procedure, you will leave our office with temporary teeth or denture that allows you to eat and enjoy your everyday life. You will return to our office some time later, where we'll replace your temporary teeth with your new, permanent teeth or denture.
Recovery time differs for every patient but many patients say they don’t experience significant discomfort and don’t even need pain medication after the procedure.
