The Best Teeth-in-a-Day & All-On-4 Dental Implants in Orange County
Losing your teeth can be devastating, and living without your smile for an extended period of time can be quite challenging. At Facer Hales Parker Dentistry, we will evaluate your smile and explain all available tooth replacement options. We will spend the time with you to help determine the best solution for your specific oral needs. If you are missing several or all teeth, you should consider Teeth-in-a-Day or All-on-4 dental implants. Performing this procedure following tooth loss will have the best results.
What is "Teeth-in-a-Day?"
Teeth-in-a-Day is a dental implant and denture process that streamlines the usual dental implant process. Instead of removing the teeth, placing dental implants, designing the denture, then attaching the denture over several months, Teeth-in-a-Day can give you a perfect smile in one day. We immediately place a traditional, removable denture so our patients don’t spend months without their teeth. Once your smile has fully healed, we permanently attach the denture.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4® dental implants provide our clients with a minimally invasive method and an alternative to full-mouth dental implants. All-on-4® uses four implants to help support a full arch on the upper or lower jaw with non-removable teeth. This dental implant method allows our clients to have a beautiful smile and a complete set of teeth without having to go through multiple surgeries. All-on-4® and Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants allow our clients to receive the smile they’ve always wanted, all during one appointment at our Ladera Ranch implant dentistry practice.
How Does Teeth-in-a-Day Work?
Traditional dental implants can take up to four to nine months to fully complete, but Teeth-in-a-Day and All-on-4® will allow you to leave our dental office with a beautiful smile. Our friendly team of dental professionals will capture a CT scan of your jawbone to tell us where to place the implants. A non-removable appliance is placed over the implants to help provide reliable function. Once you receive your initial restoration, we will remove any damaged teeth, place dental implant posts, and position your temporary restoration. Once your implants heal, you will visit Facer Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch, CA, one more time so we can place abutments, capture impressions, and create your final restoration.
The process may seem long or confusing, but our dental implants dentists will work with you one-on-one so you can understand every step of the process. Contact our office today to learn more about our Teeth-in-a-Day or All-on-4® dental implants or schedule an appointment or consultation.
Your initial evaluation involves a sit-down with Dr. Parker and your patient concierge. With modern technology, your initial examination is comfortable and easy. With a CBCT, we evaluate all of your anatomy and can begin to strategize rebuilding your teeth. With photos, we are able to assess the esthetic presentation you have and how to design a natural, full smile. Bring your questions and concerns to this appointment and we start the conversation so you know you are making the right decision for you.
This next visit is with our certified technician who will be making your teeth throughout the process. An initial try-in of teeth or measurements are made to ensure speech and esthetics will be ideal. A discussion on final esthetic outcomes such as color and shape will be had today. From here, the initial set of teeth will be made for the day of implant placement.
Today is the day for your new smile and teeth. We will be sedating you so you are comfortable throughout the procedure. We will remove anything that will impede your future health and function. Implants are placed and then the initial set of teeth are fixed to these implants.
At this visit, we will assess the healing, bite, and esthetics of the initial set of teeth. From here we are able to start the process of building the final set of teeth which will be of a much higher grade material and natural appearance. These final teeth are carefully crafted and designing them takes time to ensure longevity and ideal patient outcome.
The final teeth are completed and secured to your dental implants. From here, you walk out feeling and enjoying your new smile. Going forward, only periodic visits to ensure the health of the dental implants and cleanliness is maintained. With these new teeth, you are secure to eat and treat life like you used to without the worry of a smile that isn’t show-worthy or healthy.
