All-on-4 Dental Implants Vancouver

Edentulous patients—those who are missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch—can get a complete set of replacement teeth in a single visit to Smiles Unlimited Dental Centre, thanks to a technique called Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day (also known as All-on-4).

With Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day, patients benefit from a shorter
post-surgical healing timeline.

Dental implants are so effective because they fuse with the bone. This characteristic allows patients to choose dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss.

In edentulous patients, though, the jawbone erodes over time because the patient no longer has tooth roots to hold it in place. That process may increase the chances of dental implant failure. When this erosion occurs, patients can still be candidates for dental implants if they undergo a bone graft prior to implant placement.

This approach secures the prosthetic arch using four dental implants strategically placed toward the front of the bone, where erosion progresses most slowly. The implants are also angled underneath the gums, maximizing available bone.

After the implants are in place, patients are fitted with a prosthetic arch of teeth, allowing them to leave our office with a complete, intact smile.

Dr. Jin can take advantage of technological tools, such as CT scans and specialized computer software, which help him plan for the surgery in advance.

With Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day, patients also benefit from a shorter post-surgical healing timeline.

Even patients with significant jawbone atrophy following tooth loss can take advantage of Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day, which puts dental implants in reach of virtually all patients who want them.

If you already have extensive jawbone loss but you don’t want to wait for a bone graft to heal, consider Teeth to Stay—All in 1 Day. Our staff members can educate you on the process.
