Many people might see lost or damaged teeth as a purely cosmetic issue, but tooth loss can actually have a tremendous impact on the health of your gums and jawbone. To address this issue and help restore our patients’ smiles, Dr. Vinit Joshi and the team at Global Implant Dentistry are excited to offer Teeth In A Day implants for our Tustin, CA patients.
“Teeth In A Day” is our name for All-on-4 implants, a solution for those who want to rebuild their entire smile with a full-arch restoration. What’s exciting about Teeth In A Day implants is that we can complete them in just 24 hours — compared to the months that are usually required for implant-supported dentures. With the proper care and maintenance, your implant restoration can provide a more comfortable, appealing smile that can last a lifetime.
What are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a ground-breaking dental restoration solution that involves attaching a complete set of replacement teeth on just four surgically placed implants. The procedure is renowned for its efficiency and reliability. The term “All-on-4” refers to all teeth being supported “on four” dental implants, providing a secure and lasting solution for those with significant tooth loss. Some of the key advantages of All-on-4 include:
- Reduced recovery time thanks to fewer implant sites
- Greater stability, especially in the lower jaw
- Less reliance on bone grafting
- Long-term, durable solution with high success rates
What is the long-term success rate of All-on-4 implant-supported dentures?
More than 150,000 people have undergone All-on-4 treatments in the years since the technique debuted in 1998. Over the past decades, researchers have published multiple studies showcasing the outstanding longevity of these full-arch restorations. According to research published by the American Dental Association, All-on-4 dental implants have an average success rate of 96% after ten years (measuring all four implants). Follow-up studies published by the same team more recently showed similar results, with implants in the lower jaw (mandible) having a success rate of 92% up to 18 years and upper jaw (maxilla) implants having a success rate of 94% up to 13 years. In each study, the conclusion is the same: All-on-4 dental implants are an effective treatment option for long-term smile restoration.
How can I take care of my All-on-4 dental implants to ensure they last?
Maintaining your All-on-4 implants is very much like taking care of natural teeth. To keep your implants clean and the surrounding tissues healthy, we recommend keeping up a daily routine of brushing (using a soft brush) and flossing. You should also schedule regular check-ups, including routine dental exams and cleanings, at Global Implant Dentistry so our team can remove any built-up tartar and plaque around the implants. By following these guidelines and avoiding potentially damaging foods (like hard or sticky candy), you can ensure your implants last for years to come.

All-on-4 dental implants are a great way to restore a smile that has been compromised by severe damage, decay, or tooth loss. Unlike standard All-on-4 implants, Teeth In A Day dental implants at Global Implant Dentistry make it possible to get your new smile in just 24 hours.
