All-On-4 Phoenix, AZ
Have you heard about the new treatment option called Teeth-in-a-Day?
The All-on-4™ Treatment Concept ~ What is Teeth-in-a-Day?
Teeth-in-a-Day is a complete full arch solution where a fixed implant bridge replaces missing or failing teeth with a full arch of new beautiful teeth anchored by 4 or more dental implants the same day!
Teeth-in-a-Day allows you to avoid the need for dentures and enables you to regain 90% chewing function like you had when your teeth were healthy!
How is it possible?
Technology, expertise and a top notch lab that works in tandem with the dentist and surgeon provides the patient a fixed prosthesis the day of surgery that look just like natural teeth.
Is it really Teeth-in-a-Day?
On the day of surgery, the patient receives provisional or temporary set of teeth that will later be replaced with a final prosthesis called a fixed hybrid bridge after the implants have fully integrated and healed.
The right team is vital!
Teeth-in a-Day requires a team approach utilizing the expertise of your dentist, a surgeon and a qualified dental technician to make this otherwise lengthy process happen in one short day.
This life changing procedure will provide the patient with a healthy mouth, the ability to eat whatever they want and a million dollar smile they will want to show off to everyone!
Step 1 - Impressions
First impressions, a bite registration and photos are taken of your current dentition at your dentist’s office.
Step 2 - Teeth Fabricated
Next, a temporary set of teeth are made before the day of dental implant surgery that will be modified to become a custom fixed bridge during surgery by a qualified dental lab partner. Your Temporary Set of Teeth . Your provisional or temporary set of teeth will be made completely from acrylic incorporating the abutments that will attach the bridge to the dental implants. This prosthesis will extend back to the first molar area which is necessary for proper implant healing.
Step 3 - Surgery
On the day of surgery, remaining teeth are extracted and implants are placed then immediately loaded with the temporary set of teeth once the teeth are customized to fit onto the implants secured by implant screws.
Step 4 - Check Function
Approximately 48 hours after surgery, your dentist will check the function of your new teeth.
Step 5 - Final Restoration
After the implants have healed for 6 months, a permanent set of teeth will then be fabricated and secured onto a fixed titanium implant bar making it a fixed hybrid bridge. This will happen in 3 or more appointments at your dentist’s office. Your Permanent Set of Teeth. Your permanent or final set of teeth will be made with acrylic incorporating a titanium framework for long-term support that will be anchored to the dental implants with prosthetic screws through holes in the prosthesis. These holes will be covered and disappear after inserting the prosthesis. You final prosthesis will go back to the second molar area in most cases.

Pre-Op Patient Information
Restore Your Smile, Without the Wait
David R. Moyer Cosmetic & Family Dentistry will begin with a 3D scan, allowing your provider to view a three-dimensional virtual model of your mouth. This allows your dentist to customize your implant procedure by identifying the exact positions where the implants should be placed in your mouth, while also understanding how the factors of bone quality, implant spacing, and other anatomical structures in your jaw will affect the final set of replacement teeth and their associated implants.
Are Teeth-in-a-Day right for me?
Patients who have the right amount of bone available in their jaw, and who do not need any other adjunctive dental procedures for the success of their dental implant may qualify for Teeth-in-a-Day. After a 3D scan of your head and neck, David R. Moyer Cosmetic & Family Dentistry will consult with you to determine whether this course of treatment is right for you.
