“All on 4” / Teeth in a Day
Teeth in a day/All on 4 is a wonderful solution for patient’s facing losing most to all of their teeth or a patient who has an ill-fitting denture.
Historically patients losing their teeth or with an ill-fitting denture seeking an alternative were often sadly disappointed to learn that the dental implants required several dental surgeries over the course of 9-12 months: first graft bone, wait a few months, place dental implants, wait a few months and fabricate the new crown and bridge or over denture supported by the dental implants; not to mention the cost of this approach ranged from $ 35,000 to $45,000 per arch.
Today we can help patients who have hopeless and or missing teeth in one surgical visit. Our surgical approach reduces time and cost.
REAL PATIENT STORIES
Ruth had bad experiences with other dentists in the past, so she wasn’t sure what to expect from Dr. Djawdan. But from the moment she walked in the door, she felt like she was home. She said she was also surprised by how little pain there was after the procedure – and the results speak for themselves.
HOW DOES ALL-ON-4/TEETH IN A DAY WORK?
This technique uses dental implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations much like the triangles used in mechanical engineering of trusses used in roofs and bridges to maximize support.
The use of angled implant placement allows us to avoid anatomical areas that previously required bone grafting. Eliminating the need for bone grafting eliminates months of waiting and thousands of dollars.
Dr. Djawdan is thrilled to be able to offer this solution to people who suffer with an ill-fitting denture or are faced with losing all of their teeth and have to endure the hardship of wearing a denture. Now when a patient is faced with losing his or her teeth they do not have to settle for just a denture.
With a digital CT scan taken right here in our Annapolis, Maryland office, Dr. Djawdan uses 3-D imaging software to visualize the placement of dental implants and then designs a surgical guide.
Diagnostic impressions bite registrations and pictures will be used by our on-site dental lab to fabricate your new teeth.
In as little as a few days you can return and while under IV sedation, Dr. Djawdan will use the surgical guide to place your dental implants and seat your new teeth. Most patients find that they are able to eat and speak with a confidence they have not experienced in years the very next day.
Using 3 D imaging and virtual planning software, we can design a minimally invasive surgical plan to take the remaining teeth and replace them with dental implants the same day. An immediate denture that has been fabricated in advance will then be converted at the time of surgery to a temporary hybrid fixed bridge. Possible adjunctive procedures include volume reduction of blood platelets for Leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) to accelerate tissue regeneration and bone grafting – maxillary. The permanent Prettau implant bridge will be completed in a few months once the implants have fully integrated
WHAT IS THE COST OF IMPLANT TREATMENT?
An investment in dental implant treatment is an investment in overall health, appearance and well being, as it involves preserving the integrity of facial structures, as well as replacing missing teeth.
The actual cost of implant treatment is based on a number of factors, such as the number of teeth being replaced, the type of Implant supported teeth (treatment option) recommended and whether additional procedures are necessary to achieve the proper esthetic and functional result.
There is often a misconception that there is a set cost for each implant. The fees are calculated based on the amount of time the we anticipate spending to complete treatment (implant placement, other surgical procedures, fabrication of replacement teeth…) as well as the estimated cost of implants, other components and materials necessary to complete treatment and dental laboratory fees.
The all -inclusive fee for All on 4/Teeth in a day ranges $ 20,000 to $ 25,000 per jaw.
QUESTION: WILL MY INSURANCE PAY FOR IMPLANTS?
The extent of your coverage will depend on your individual plan and the implant benefits included. Very few dental insurance plans cover implants placement; however, fabrication of the replacement teeth is often partially covered up to your annual maximum (the average annual benefit for most dental plans is $1,500.00).
