ight for you?
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Implants are tilted in a strategic way to utilize existing bone density and avoid painful bone grafts
- Only four implants are required
- Immediate function of a full fixed bridge
- Reduced dental implant cost
- Eat comfortably and stress-free!
- Each patient is unique and may require a customized solution
- Patients’ jaw structures vary, and some may not fit the prefabricated teeth

The revolutionary treatment allows patients to leave with a complete set of teeth on the same day as the procedure, hence the name “teeth in a day“. Depending on each patients’ unique needs, four to six implants are placed in the upper and lower parts of the mouth. If any extractions are necessary, these are also completed on the same day. A temporary full fixed bridge is fastened to the implants, which act and function like normal teeth. The patient will then wait 8-12 weeks, allowing the gums to properly heal and the patient to adjust to a comfortable bite and ability to chew. After 12 weeks, a general dentist will create and affix a permanent set of teeth made of acrylic or zirconium to the implants.
All-on-4 CASE STUDY
New teeth in 24 hours
This patient came in with extreme periodontal disease that caused his teeth to decay and fall out. Periodontal disease begins as an inflammation of the gums, caused by the bacteria found in plaque buildup that causes initial swelling, discomfort and bleeding when brushing and flossing. When left untreated, the bacteria will continue spreading beyond the gum line, causing tissue damage, bone loss, decay, and can eventually cause teeth to fall out. After a thorough analysis of his case, we decided we could transform his smile and restore his confidence with the All-On-4 treatment method!
The All-On-4 teeth in a day treatment is the ideal solution for patients missing all or the majority of their teeth. The innovative treatment provides patients with a fully functioning set of upper or lower teeth, using a minimum of four implants, in just one day! This unique treatment offers patients a graftless solution, as it utilizes the patients’ existing bone, avoiding the need for a bone graft for a more comfortable and less invasive solution than traditional implants.
In this patient’s case, his top teeth were so damaged from periodontal disease and were not savable, so we first had to extract them all. After extracting the teeth, we placed the permanent dental implants, which replace his extracted tooth roots and serve as the foundation for the permanent restoration. Dr. Yeung created the permanent restoration, which is a full fixed arch prosthesis, that looks, feels and functions just like real teeth.
Thanks to this cutting-edge treatment, we restored this patient’s oral health, transformed his smile, and helped him smile confidently once again!
FAQ About All-on-4 “Teeth In A Day”
Q: Replacing all of my teeth sounds extremely painful. Is this an invasive procedure?
A: The treatment is actually minimally invasive as it typically requires only four to six dental implants in each jaw to support your entire new set of teeth. Further, because the procedure employs a unique technique that tilts the posterior implants to utilize the patient’s existing jawbone, many patients do not require bone grafting.
Q: How long will I be without a complete smile?
A: You won’t! Because dental implants and the temporary restorations are placed on the same day in most cases. Patient’s leave their appointment with a fully functioning temporary set of teeth, that look, feel and function like permanent teeth. Patient’s love the All-on-4 treatment because they leave the office with a beautiful smile, allowing them to go about their daily lives with comfort, ease and without disruption. After the mouth and gums fully heal, usually a 3-6 month process, patients return to receive their permanent restorations.
